Academic Insight

Academic Insight is a series of half-day events hosted by each of the colleges during the spring semester. These events will give newly admitted freshmen and transfer students the opportunity to meet representatives of the college they will be majoring in as well as interact with both current and entering students in their department. Each event includes a meal, departmental fair, college specific presentation, and small group breakout sessions by major. If you have been admitted to MSU, we invite you to participate in one of these pre-registration- only events.
