EXPLORE THIS COLLEGE PORTRAIT

Michigan State University is one of the top research universities in the world, on one of the biggest, greenest campuses in the country.

Michigan State University Spartans work every day to advance the common good in uncommon ways. The nation’s pioneer land-grant university, MSU began as a bold experiment that helped democratize higher education. Today, the university is home to a diverse community of dedicated students and scholars, athletes and artists, scientists and leaders and offers nationally ranked and recognized academic, residential college, and service-learning programs. MSU leads the nation in study abroad participation among public universities and provides students with opportunities to work side-by-side with faculty on research and creative projects that help provide solutions to the big problems of our time, from Michigan to Malawi.

Living in the Spartans Community

Michigan State University offers more than a world-class education. It offers an epic adventure!

At MSU, the vast number of opportunities—from 200 programs of study and more than 600 student organizations to big-name events and Big Ten athletics—is matched only by the immensity of the chance to make a difference. Students study abroad, participate in internships, conduct research, and lead and volunteer locally and globally, with the support of close-knit campus communities—from Greek-letter to living-learning environments. Graduates, who have earned a reputation as top employee prospects, continue a proud and powerful Spartan tradition that provides a lifelong network of friends and opportunities.
