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.

We loved walking around the campus. We checked out the planetarium, the bookstore and the hockey rink. All were very fun and excellent.

Beautiful any time of the year! Try the Union and the museum. The Dairy store has long hours and the best cheese. If you like walking, this is the place!

Smaller then The Ohio State University campus. It is also cleaner then the Ohio State campus. This would be my six choice to college.

Awesome campus. Walking around campus is like strolling through a state park. Quality education, excellent facilities and a world class museum. Highly recommend visiting and if you are a graduating senior, you can't find a better university

We visited with my son, a freshman at MSU, this past fall and had an opportunity to attend the MSU vs OSU football game. While the end result was disappointing, it was phenomenal experience to be in the stadium and witness the Spartan spirit.

Went to the Breslin to see the Spartans play some baskeball. The campus is awesome. Cool things to see especially after the game and a night on the town. Enjoyed all of the college hangouts. It's a cool campus!
