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.

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
