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 campus has lots of great gardens and nice trail along the river. Nice place to walk in all seasons. If raining take a stroll through the museum, which is in the center of campus.

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 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....More
