I would spend one year to study at MSU, Starkville, since the near future. But the budget is quite limited. Please advice me how to have a better life at a less cost? Thank you. 

I don't know what you mean by cheap, but Mississippi is fairly inexpensive. You can find places to live for $200-$300 a month (for one room) which is very reasonable. Also, there is not a lot to spend your money on (like shopping) so that is good. You can live inexpensively anywhere if you know how to cut corners (no eating out, bike ride instead of drive, conserve heat/A/C if you can handle it, no extra shopping etc.). Its possible anywhere. Good luck!

Starkville and Columbus have two stores called the Palmer Home Thrift Store. You can find inexpensive clothes, furniture, shoes, etc. I don't know if that's what you mean. Look around for inexpensive apartments - they exist. Some people rent out their basements and spare rooms also. I'm not sure what else to say.

Are you living in the dorms? If not, check the local newspaper for apartments for rent. Starkville Daily News - Home has listings for houses, apartments, and bedrooms for rent.

Check with the school administration office and see what jobs they have that are available to the students. If you have good grades you should check into what scholarships you could apply for, look online there are all different scholarships available. If you have filed taxes by your self and your income is not too high you should look into pell grants that you don't have to pay back. There is a website that you can go on to fill out the application the schools financial office can give you all of that information.

Hi friends, thanks for your response. I consider that there were also some fears to the unknown new place, among others. Your kind posts made me calm down. Thank you very much again. Does anybody need anything from China?

If transportation isn't an issue for you and you're not living on campus, rent is MUCH cheaper in the smaller towns outside of Starkville - Sturgis, Mathiston, Louisville, etc. I work in the city of Starkville but live in one of the above mentioned areas. Real estate prices due to the college are not what you would expect of a small southern town. Good luck!

I graduated from MSU in 2002 and there a few places you can check out. College park communities is very popular for students. I lived there for a year. I lived with 2 other people in a 4br apartment. We never got a 4th person so they just locked that door. You sign an individual lease and they are pretty nice. They have 2-4 bedroom apartments and the rent is like 350 a person I think but please check on this. You don't necessarily have to have a roomate already. They can just put you in an apartment that has a vacant room especially since it will only be for a semester. Also University commons works on the same premise and for the same amount.

Dear friends,

I have arrived at MSU and settled down. Since entering into the USA's area, I have met several very kind persons, which soon eliminates a lot of my strange feelings for a new place. I appreciate the people very much. I know I have little as the return, but I do be willing to prepare Chinese food for you, Chinese dumpling in particular. If anybody is interested in it, please let me know.
