MSU's huge country-like campus offers a lovely setting for running, biking or just hanging out, and also has places to visit, like the Beal Botanical Gardens, Sanford Natural Area, the 70,000-capacity Spartan football stadium, an art center, planetarium and, of course, the MSU Dairy Store for ice cream.

Yes I am bias but the campus is magnificent regardless. After returning I am always amazed at how much of the beauty I missed as a student.

Michigan State University is a beautiful campus with plenty to do for the family. There is a planetarium, botanical garden, ice cream store, Kresge Museum, the Broad Art Gallery, Wharton Center for the Performing Arts, or just sitting on the banks of the Red Cedar feeding the geese and ducks. It is a great place for a walk or a... More

I come to East Lansing at least two times a year for MSU sporting events. I love this campus. It can be easy to get lost so pay attention. There are plenty of restaurants and stores surrounding campus. You must go check out a football game. I love the hockey games as well. The fall is my favorite time to... More

We were attending a animal event at the university on the campus. The Pavilion is wonderful with lots of room and great facilities. There are plenty of rest rooms and food at the venue which is convenient if you are there all day like we were. We are looking forward to returning again.

Our son was accepted to Michigan State University. We took the tour which consisted of about three hours. We found the tour very informative. All the students were helpful and friendly. We were surprised at the cafeteria food as it was quite tasty for a college. The admission staff took time with us to answer all of our questions even... More

Breslin center is a great venue as is the Kellogg center. Lodging and entertainment is more here than just sports.

I personally love the large campus feel and having so many trees around to use for a hammock. The red cedar river is a great place to study and to have the white noise in the background with the sun kissing your face. The library has a variety of places to study by yourself and with friends. The busses during... More

What can I say, I grew up on the MSU campus. I've enjoyed so many of the numerous attractions, such as the Dairy Store and Beaumont Tower; and I've attended endless theatre productions, football games, hockey games, etc. MSU, it gets in your blood, and you bleed Green forever!!
