MSU News

Michigan State University CheerThe past year has been very quiet related to activity on the campus of Michigan State University.  However, MSU has announced plans for Commencement and the coming fall semester which include bringing people to East Lansing.

Planning is underway for smaller, in-person Commencement ceremonies April 30-May 2 that are consistent with state and local health department guidelines.  Most ceremonies will take place in the parking lots of Breslin Center, Spartan Stadium, Erickson Hall, and the Auditorium.

MSU President Samuel Stanley announced that the university is planning for a more typical fall semester, with 75% of undergraduate classes offered in person. Classes will be offered in multiple scenarios — in person, hybrid and some still online, especially those that would traditionally fill large lecture halls.  They will also offer a residence hall experience to first-year students and as many other students as possible while still providing a safe living space.

MSU Athletics is planning for fall events with spectators again, following state requirements and guidelines that will be in place at that time regarding attendance.  The Wharton Center and Broad Art Museum are planning events this fall.  Community-based activities will be permitted in alignment with local and state requirements and guidelines.

We’re looking forward to seeing activity returning safely to campus!
