Early Start is a program that gives freshman students a chance to get a head start on their degree by taking one or two courses before the fall semester begins. Early Start students participate in a living and learning community by moving in to one of the newest residence halls in July, taking classes taught exclusively for Early Start students, and getting to know new friends, their professors, and campus leaders to truly get a head start on their college career.
Here's what a few students, parents, and professors had to say after their Early Start 2012 experience:
"... I also wanted to thank you for all of your help this summer. Your teaching and patience have truly prepared me for the upcoming semester. You are a wonderful teacher and individual! Thank you for not only giving me, but all the other students a chance to learn and appreciate the history of music. I have thoroughly enjoyed your class!"
"Thank you for this great program and great experience of the college life."
"I have enjoyed Early Start so much! I think it will help me very much in this coming school year!"
"Just wanted to say THANKS again. You did a great job with the presentation, and we met Thomas in the hallway on Tuesday. I have a very good feeling that MSU will be a great experience for our son. You have done a wonderful job ..."
"these 'Earlies,' as I call them, are so good and so cool that I want to do anything I can that might help out. Frankly, these kids are a blast!! They are one of the most lively, fun, and enthusiastic groups of students I have ever taught in all my years here. I actually look forward to my 1:00 class every day. It is wonderful! Are you getting similar reactions from the other faculty? I imagine you must be. Anyway, thank you so much for having me be part of this program."
