The Hosaeus Health and PE Complex offers students a place to play basketball, tennis, racquetball, take a swim, and lift some weights. In 2008, the complex underwent renovations, including a new cardio fitness center, aerobics and martial arts rooms, a climbing wall, and additional locker rooms. Students on varsity teams have their own training facilities next door in the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse. In terms of academics, MSU's Renne Library offers every type of studying environment possible. With a gathering area and coffeehouse on the main floor, students working on projects or taking time for a quick review before a test have a place to work. During finals week, however, the designated quiet study areas by the fountain are jam-packed with people cramming for the big exams. There are also study rooms students can reserve for quizzing one another, or for what often happens: laughing, talking, and not doing much studying.
"Mediocre" is the most accurate way to describe MSU's buildings and design. The University is currently in the process of revamping its outdated buildings, which while exciting, means that you'll see a lot of construction and hear a lot of noise on campus.
