At this event, you’ll get to meet other incoming students, view residence halls, learn more about Spartan life and attend the MSU spring football kickoff!
Our colleges will offer fun opportunities for you to connect with current students and visit our state-of-the-art facilities. Plus, there will be resources from housing and many more campus departments. You can also find out more about some of our 1,000+ student organizations at the student life fair, which will be followed by a pep rally and the spring football kickoff.
