Beautiful campus, lots to see and do, and many wonderful memories, and plans to make more. Spartan Stadium, Munn Ice Arena, Wharton Center, Breslin Center, Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center and the State Room, State Room events, strolling by the Red Cedar, the Art Museum, the MSU museum, watching/listening to the marching band; there's always something going on.

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

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.

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.

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.
