Anna

There are so many things here at State that I love but I guess my favorite tradition would have to be every day there is a football game. It is tradition to have tailgating parties and activites to do before you go to a game. IT is always a fun time and many students love the atmosphere before, during, and after a game.

Taylor

When I'm asked this question...the first thing that comes to mind is the excitement of football games in the fall! Even if you don't have tickets, many students simply enjoy tailgating and taking in all the sights and sounds each Saturday during home games. MSU has a lot of pride and school spirit, you certainly need to take part to get the full effect! Chants of GO GREEN and GO WHITE echo across the beautiful grounds of the West Circle neighborhood, and you might even see Sparty escorting the Spartan Marching band on their walk towards the stadium!
