Living in East Lansing we are on MSU's campus regularly, especially once the students leave for the summer. Great place to ride your bike, go for a walk or have a picnic. Beautiful trees and gardens all around campus and the Red Cedar river runs right through it. There are two places to get ice cream from the Dairy Store;... More

MSU has one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. I was thrilled to take my son there. The planetarium show is great!

Family attended graduate degree graduation, and it was well organized. The shuttle bus system was efficient and well timed. There were plenty of programs. The security was efficient and polite.

I come from the Pasadena, CA area and have visited MSU in January to check it out during the second polar vortex, February to see men's basketball defeat Ohio State, July for student orientation and October to watch the annual beat down on Michigan football. Today we are going to see springtime as we bring our freshman home for the... More

Michigan State is probably one of the most beautiful college campuses in America. My wife and I returned for my 50th graduating class reunion. Everyone that we met in the returning class had certainly excelled way beyond their expectations 50 years ago. Michigan State is one in the leading research universities in the world and certainly should be should be... More

I took my grand kids to free science day at Michigan state. They did a wonderful job hosting. Many things to do on campus anytime. Games, museums, planetarium, etc just to name a few. The red cedar river runs through the campus and is very nice.

Since I first visited the campus in 1967, I have always felt at home. Having just participated in the Undergraduate Research Forum, I can honestly say that Michigan State has some of the finest students in the country. I am always impressed with the quality of care that is given to the campus, its students and faculty as well as... More
