I may be an alumni, but I think the campus at MSU is one of the most beautiful in the country! Take a walk along the Red Cedar and enjoy the scenery.

Very lovely campus with so many beautiful trees and such easy walking that you can wander for hours and visit the gardens, walk over the Red Cedar River and admire the pretty old and new architecture. Land grant colleges are special as they are small communities themselves and MSU is uniquely large yet intimate. Campus is welcoming, professors inspiring, students... More

This place may not be on the radar of places to eat, but my family and kids always love to eat here. It's open to the public and I believe is about $10, maybe $12 pp for all you can eat! There are many stations similar to a mall cafe area, but the food is all top notch made by... More

One of the prettiest large campuses in the country. Very large land-grant University with a massive, fine dormitory system (dorms were built and are run without state monetary support and professional, multi-choice meals). Many dorms have classrooms included and most have male and female wings. Large number of classroom buildings focused on specific areas of study. Huge agricultural study area... More

Michigan State University's East Lansing campus occupies approximately 5000 acres. The northernmost portion of the site which is the center of the academic and residence communities is impressively landscaped and contains many impressive buildings & athletic structures. A visit during the fall foliage season is particularly recommended.

MSU has a beautiful campus with a great educational, cultural and athletic offering. The student population of over 40,000 has so many diverse groups and major course alternatives available that you can choose to make your college experience as small or as large as you wish. The university also offers a terrific hotel, the Kellogg Center, on campus with contribution... More
