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.

The worst thing in the university are the distances you must walk from place to place. We were visiting the two museums on the campus. The general museum was very interesting and the art museum its building is what you have to see. The super...More

Our second stop on the college campus tour left us less impressed with MSU than previous visits. The campus is beautiful, it is also very large! It’s almost as large as the ego you sense from the admissions presenter. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still...More

The flowering trees and shrubs are exquisite and worth strolling on campus to take it all in--ther eis no more spectacular place in the US than this campus in springtime. The people are friendly if you get lost on this huge campus.

Our son has elected to attend in the fall. We're delighted. The campus and student options are amazing. The statues and stadiums are awesome. Everyone we met raved about the school. Easy to see why. We are proud to be Spartans.
