Welcome Spartans!

Welcome to Spartan Country!

Congratulations on your new journey with Michigan State University! We know that for some, finding things to see and do during your down-time can be a little cumbersome and you might not know where to start. Showing our guests the best spots in Greater Lansing is our specialty and we are happy to help you navigate your way!


Please keep in mind that the COVID-19 situation has had an impact on how we work, live and play. At this time, all individuals (as of August 1, 2021) are required to wear masks in all campus buildings and  other MSU facilities. All students faculty and staff are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by August 31, 2021. Many of the retailers, attractions, restaurants and events may have altered their ways of operating. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we all navigate the "new normal." Please observe the 6 ft. physical distance guidelines, wear a mask, and be aware of capacity limits. Please see the adjacent "Safe Spartans" article for more information specific to MSU campus and East Lansing. Our attractions, restaurants and hotels have taken the Greater Lansing Safe Pledge showcasing their commitment to our visitors health and well being.
