LBS class of 1998

I just cannot say enough about Lyman Briggs. When coming to college I was so worried about the big campus of Michigan State, but then I heard about LBS. It was perfect. Here you can go to the small school, yet at the same time still take part in the many activities of a Big Ten university. Being a student at LBS has allowed me to feel like I was a part of a group and anytime I needed help there were fellow students right on my floor or even better, the professors right downstairs. I got to know a lot of people that were in my classes and we became good friends. The Teaching Assistants are mainly undergraduates, which is great because they are very easy to relate to. Being part of LBS has made me a strong and determined person. In the small setting I have grown and the level of the courses has made me quite prepared for Medical School. The community of LBS is one of kindness and opportunity. I have excelled greatly in my undergraduate career and I attribute a lot of this to LBS. The faculty and staff are great and I never thought that I would have such great relations with my professors, especially at a big university such as MSU. I now am a T.A. and the president of the Student Advisory Council so I have been quite involved in LBS. I am very proud to be a part of the school and feel that it has been the unique way that Lyman Briggs is set up that has led to my success. LBS is an integral part of MSU and I am so glad that I was able to take advantage of such a great school, for it has done nothing but benefited me.
