Welcome, Spartans! It’s that time.

Time to pack it up and head to one of the biggest, greenest campuses in the country, where 47,000 of your closest friends are waiting. Time to roll up your sleeves and show those classes who’s boss. Time to scream at the top of your lungs during the first kickoff in Spartan Stadium. Time to try new things—which shouldn’t be a problem, considering MSU has nearly endless possibilities.

Go forth and make this year epic. SPARTANS WILL. spartan shield
