Let’s face it, sometimes being a student isn’t the most exciting thing. Long breaks between classes, waiting for your friends to get out of class, or it is Saturday afternoon and you need to kill some time before the night begins. Every student gets bored AF. Here are 15 things to do around MSU for those moments!
1. MSU Museum
Michigan’s first Smithsonian-affiliate.
2. W. J. Beal Botanical Gardens
The oldest continuously-operated garden of its type in the U.S. with over 2,700 species organized in economic, systematic landscape and ecological groupings.
3. Abrams Planetarium
Sit back and enjoy the wonders of the universe in the sky theatre.
4. Beaumont Tower
This is the iconic bell tower where carillonneurs play noontime recitals and legends tell of first kisses at midnight and engagements in the shadow of the tower.
5. MSU Farms
Colts racing, beef calves frolicking and mooing dairy cows waiting to be milked are a few of the sights to see when visiting the farms.
6. Wharton Center for Performing Arts
Catch the latest major touring Broadway blockbusters plus a great lineup of performing arts at Wharton.
7. MSU Dairy Store
It’s always hard to choose betwen the 32 flavors of some of the freshest ice cream you’ll ever taste. Or pick up some award-winning cheese varieties. Smiles guaranteed!
8. Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum
This Zaha Hadid-designed art museum presents groundbreaking, international contemporary art across all media and is housed in a pleated stainless steel and glass multi-angled building that in itself is an architectural wonder.
9. Demmer Shooting Sports Education And Training Center
This training site for Michigan State University archery, rifle and pistol club teams is open to the public and promotes the safe use of firearms and archery equipment.
10. Big Ten Sporting Events
Spartan football, basketball and hockey are among the favorite reasons for a visit to MSU. The resounding chants of Go Green! Go White! echo across campus. Make time for one last stop. Your visit won’t be complete without a photo taken in front of the bronze Spartan Statue near the stadium.
11. Go “out to eat.”
By out to eat I mean go eat at a dinning hall you don’t usually go to.
12. Wait for the red cedar to flood over like it does every year and then go skiing down in.
13. Watch the free movie every night in Wells hall.
14. A Wednesday night freebee, cosmic bowling.
15. Squirrel watching. Yes it’s a real club and there are a lot of people in it.
