We recently spent a couple of hours driving and walking around the huge campus of MSU. We enjoyed all the beautiful old architecture and were not real happy when we saw the modern, LOL, but we have to roll with the punches! The campus is a botanical treasure of trees, shrubs, etc. of course it was and is an agricultural... More

One of the largest campuses in America and is most gorgeous during the fall when the leaves are changing colors. I was a student at MSU and loved it when I would walk to class along the river.

This is one amazingly large campus, many beautiful buildings. Be sure and check out their MSU Dairy Store, wonderful fresh made ice cream in the Student Union Building.

I entered MSU in 1965 and graduated in 1969. During that time, I got a fine education and participated in Air Force ROTC, Captained the Rowing Team and was an RA in East Shaw Hall. MSU has so much to offer its undergrads beyond its obvious beauty. MSU's production of Rhodes Scholars speaks for itself. As a bonus, I met... More

Nice campus to walk around. Cool modern art museum building. I liked the building, but wasn't too impressed with the "art" inside. Campus has wifi.

I really enjoyed my tour of MSU. The buildings, including all the sports facilities are just astonishing. One downfall is that there is no transportation that is free for students on campus. Crazy with a 5200 acre campus that you must pay for bus service!

This is a wonderful University to go to school, or just for a visit. It has a lovely campus, with many lovely gardens to enjoy. Many interesting buildings. There is always something going on. Football Saturdays at MSU are just the best. The students on this campus are very friendly, and you will feel welcome. MSU has something called Grandparents... More

Visited on a lovely Michigan day--cool, breezy, sunny. Walked around the MSU Horticulture Gardens--somewhat smaller than I thought it would be, but some nice perennial gardens and beautiful flowers. A small but interesting children's garden area where bees and bee houses are showcased. I happened to come when there was an art fair on campus, but even so, there were... More

MSU held a youth conference this past weekend in the Breslin Center. They had helpful and friendly staff and the facility was well maintained and clean. Good Michigan experience for a group of Buckeyes :)
