Beautiful campus! Walked around and a docent in the botanical gardens showed us the most poisonous plant area and Johnny Appleseed trees. Bike trails everywhere and beautiful farmland to bike through. Football stadium staff were great in replacing lost tickets. Lots to do as grow ups visiting just to get away.

Wow some college campuses are old and beat up looking but this has to be one of the best kept campus's around. beautiful foliage, you feel very safe as you walk around and see some new and very old buildings. the stadium is in middle of campus to parking off campus and walking is easy to do and probably better...

I was there for a football game. Wonderful venue. I haven't visited the Eli Broad Art Museum yet, but next time.

We were on a tour of the campus with our grand daughter in July 2013. We were treated well at the hotel which was a great start to our campus visit. We met with several people from various schools within the university. It was a pleasant experience which resulted in her selecting MSU as her educational experience.

Beautiful campus. Took a walking tour through the western campus. Beal gardens are wonderful. Walk along the Red Cedar very peaceful. Enjoyed the shops and eateries in the Student Union.

We rode our bikes around campus on the weekend and enjoyed all of the beautiful gardens. So peaceful with no weekend traffic.

One of the most beautiful college campuses in the country. There is always an abundance of things to do and see including the horticulture gardens, Wharton center for the performing arts and the sports venues. Simply taking a long walk and feeding the ducks near the library will make for a memorable day.

There is much going on: a new fine art museum designed by a significant architect, de-centralizing of support services for housing "neighborhoods" makes sense. Free buses every 15 min. Lots of greenery.

I really like MSU. I am Spartan. Good education quality , nice people . The hot girls are always around campus. I often take summer class. There are no many people on campus in summer . That sucks . Go green
