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!!

A beautiful campus and a really fun place to tailgate. A nice crowd of very friendly people. A good atmosphere, even when the team was losing :( I hope to visit again sometime.

We bleed green in this family. Three generations of graduates and post-graduates. There is no place like the MSU campus anywhere. Go Green

Nice five days at the University for a class held at the Kellogg Conference Center. Enjoyed eating at the large campus dining facility, the Brody Center. $10.00 for all you can eat at various kiosks style venues. Lots of options from organic to pizza to deli to salad bar to hot entrees. Campus is very pretty and easy to walk... More

It was an honor to visit Michigan State. We toured the athletic facilities and it is easy to understand why they are a powerhouse!
