Brooke is a senior at Michigan State University studying Graphic Design and Photography. After arriving at Michigan State from her hometown in Florida, she quickly fell in love with East Lansing and all it has to offer. She has continued developing her love of Design and the Greater Lansing Area with the GLCVB Marketing and Communications team, and loves every minute of it! 

It’s safe to say that 2020’s football season isn’t what we were expecting, but the fact that we have a football season to celebrate our favorite teams is good news! While we can’t tailgate all over campus like previous years, there’s no reason that you can’t enjoy a tail-gate take-out meal from the comfort of your own home! 

While it’s true that Lansing has an abundance of fun, outdoor fall venues, such as the Lansing River Trail, Potter Park Zoo, or even Fenner Nature Center, we acknowledge that many of us aren’t quite ready to venture out of the comfort of our homes. That's why this year we are offering a list of venues that will help you bring the #LoveLansing fall experience back home!

Dear Spartans, 
 
By this time, all of us know about President Stanley’s latest email regarding the fall of 2020. Many of us, myself included, were just moving into our new apartments or had already settled into our living space a few days prior. Due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19, as well as recent university incidents, MSU has declared that classes will be held solely online, with a few exceptions for certain degrees as well as a few performance/experience based courses. 

After spending practically all of spring indoors, I'll take any excuse to be outside this summer. Despite my extra time to practice my own cooking and drink mixing skills, I crave having a professional cocktail from some of my favorite restaurants. Having a quiet, sunny space to sit while drinking is just an added bonus to the experience.
