It was nice touring the campus. Our campus tour was very energetic which was needed when walking more than 3 miles of campus ground. Only recommendation if weather is hot...have bottles of water at various stops.

I graduated from MSU six years ago, and I have noticed some changes to the buildings (all for the better). But much was the same. The campus is a beautiful park of... More

Both, my daughter and son attended and graduated from Michigan State University. Even if you do not have an academic relationship with the university, its campus is worth it knowing, visiting, exploring and enjoying. Simply beautiful!

Well went and received two degrees. What can I say beyond that. A baby boomer gone bad. Did not send my kids here but it did alright by me. My other degree came from IU in Urbana.

Lovely host to the Odyssey of the Ming Competition in May 2015 (slot was not available for date). A beautiful campus! We were impressed with the campus and its surroundings.

This is my second time on the beautiful campus of Michigan State University for a CLEAR workshop for foreign language teachers and I am still very much in love because of all of the greenery, the river that runs through the campus, the Beaumont Tower, the older parts of campus, and, of course, the MSU Dairy Store, where the have...

The campus is large and to view all the buldings will take 3 to 4 hours. Their auditorium is very good. I did not go inside all the buildings as even from the outside they are attractive. I went inside the auditorium and it was a bit old fashioned
