No real tips, you will walk up and down lots of hills. They don't let you sled down these big hills in the winter. I would not go back to mssu. Communication is poor throughout the university. You have to take several "writting intensive" classes to graduate. It is cheap at $2**/credit hour for instate students, it is a university as of the past few years (same education as you would have recieved when it was a "college").
