MSU is the national leader in Animal Husbandry. Our archrivals at the U of M kidded us about being the Cow College. But We have the best milk in the state of Michigan!

This place is seriously awesome. Love all the different types of flavors and the service is great! You may wait a little longer on weekends, but it is completely worth it!

Love this place! I can just drop on down from work and get the tastiest ice cream! Every thing is fresh made and worth the wait in line as they are usually quite busy?

We stopped here for a break while touring the campus, and we were glad we did! They have a lot of unusual flavors (sweet corn ice cream, anyone?) as well as lots of delicious expected ones (chocolate, vanilla, etc.). Try the buckeye ice cream...it was amazing!

Creamy and delicious ice cream and grilled cheese sandwiches. The ice cream flavors and their names are creative and novel. You can also purchase ice cream in cartons and cheese to take with you. The only downside is that there is not a lot of seating, but really, who cares? You can always eat outside or in your car, and... More

Everybody loves MSU Dairy Store Ice Cream, but waiting in line for a half hour was a little much for my liking. However, there were at least 5 students working as fast as they could, so I wasn't to upset. The ice cream is very delicious and rich. I wouldn't get anything larger than a small though because of how... More

Absolute best ice cream in the area, and if you go at the right time, you can see it being made. Their cheese is good too. There is often a line on warm days, but it's worth it.

I took the family for ice cream here and it's our favorite place to go. I was here a few times over the summer with family that came to town and they really liked it too. The cheese is also very good.

Very good selection, price ,service and cleanliness. Usually very busier. POOR parking. If you are lucky you will find a space but fill the meter with coins, you will need the time because the line is LONG.
