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.

Too many Liberal instructors that feel they need to brain wash young people to their way of thinking.Keep the politics OUT of the classroom. THEN they would be an excellent institution.

Michigan State is a beautiful land grant campus. Yes it's my alma mater...so I'm a little biased. Best way to see the HUGE campus is by bicycle.
