Incoming freshmen are about to receive their first test: adjusting to a college campus lifestyle.

Luckily for them, MSU is providing a few cinematic study tools to help them prepare.

The Spartan "Fresh-Min” is a series of one-minute videos designed to provide freshmen with important tips and information on how to make the most of their first semester at MSU.

MSU provides students with hundreds of dining options. With a dozen cafeterias - each containing unique stations and dishes - freshmen could have a harder time finding the ideal meal than navigating campus. The university’s corporate chef explains how to maximize a meal plan in the second “Fresh-Min” video.

A freshman’s dining options don’t end when he or she exits the dining halls. College students’ lifestyles are often on-the-go. At MSU, their meals can be too. The manager of Sparty’s, a campus convenience store, discusses the uses of a Combo Exchange meal replacement in part three of the "Fresh-Min" series.

Adjusting to university-level academics can be a difficult transition. With tutoring services, MSU engagement centers provide a way to make the switch a smooth one. In the fourth “Fresh-Min” video, a neighborhood engagement director tells of the mental, physical and social benefits of understanding engagement center services.

The final video in the “Fresh-Min” series features MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon. She and a student provide advice on how new Spartans can thrive during their first year on campus.

In this one-minute video, President Lou Anna K. Simon talks with student Michael Vanfleteren on what it means to be a Spartan and live at MSU.
