Michigan State University (MSU) is a public research university located in East Lansing, Michigan, United States and is the first land-grant institution that was created to serve as a model for future land-grant colleges in the country under the 1862 Morrill Act. French Macaron Pillow ,Creative Cushion - Matty's

MSU pioneered the studies of packaging, hospitality business, supply chain management, and telecommunication. It is considered to be one of America's Public Ivy universities, which recognizes top public universities in the United States.[5]

Following the introduction of the Morrill Act, the college became coeducational and expanded its curriculum beyond agriculture.French Macaron Pillow ,Creative Cushion - Matty's

Today, MSU is the seventh-largest university in the United States (in terms of enrollment), with 49,300 students (2013–14) and 2,954 faculty members. MSU's Division I sports teams are called the Spartans. They compete in theBig Ten Conference in all sports. MSU's football team won the Rose Bowl in 1954, 1956, 1988 and 2014 and boasts six national championships.[6] SAMSUNG N150 Laptop Keyboard

Its men's basketball team won the NCAA National Championship in 1979 and 2000 and is currently enjoying a streak of six Final Four appearances over the last 13 seasons. MSU men's ice hockey won national titles in 1966, 1986 and 2007. Cross country has historically been Michigan State's most successful sport, HP Pavilion DV9243EA Laptop Keyboard

especially during a four-decade period spanning roughly 1930–1970 during which the Spartans won eight NCAA championships and numerous other conference and national titles.

The Michigan Constitution of 1850 called for the creation of an "agricultural school",[8] though it was not until February 12, 1855, that Michigan Governor Kinsley S. FUJITSU Lifebook E8110 Laptop Keyboard

Bingham signed a bill establishing the United States' first agriculture college, the Agricultural College of the State of Michigan.[9] Classes began on May 13, 1857, with three buildings, five faculty members, and 63 male students. The first president, Joseph R. Williams, designed a curriculum that required more scientific study than practically any undergraduate institution of the era. Lenovo 3000 Y500 Laptop Keyboard

It balanced science, liberal arts, and practical training. The curriculum excluded Latin and Greek studies, since most applicants did not study any classical languages in their rural high schools. However, it did require three hours of daily manual labor, which kept costs down for both the students and the College.[10] Despite Williams' innovations and his defense of education for the masses, the State Board of Education saw Williams' curriculum as elitist. HP Pavilion DV8310CA Laptop Keyboard

They forced him to resign in 1859 and reduced the curriculum to a two-year vocational program.

In 1860, Williams became acting lieutenant governor[11] and helped pass the Reorganization Act of 1861. This gave the College a four-year curriculum and the power to grant master's degrees. Under the act, a newly created body, known as the State Board of Agriculture, took over from the State Board of Education in running the institution.  Lenovo 0A62039 Laptop Keyboard

The College changed its name to State Agricultural College, and its first class graduated in the same year. As the Civil War had just begun, there was no time for an elaborate graduation ceremony. The first alumni enlisted to the Union Army. Williams died, and the following year, Abraham Lincoln signed the First Morrill Act of 1862 to support similar colleges, making the Michigan school a national model. DELL Vostro 3450 Laptop Keyboard

The college first admitted women in 1870, although at that time there were no female residence halls. The few women who enrolled either boarded with faculty families or made the arduous stagecoach trek from Lansing. From the early days, female students took the same rigorous scientific agriculture courses as male students. In 1896, the faculty created a "Women Course" that melded a home economics curriculum withliberal arts and sciences.  TOSHIBA Mini NB 505-SP0160 Laptop Keyboard

That same year, the College turned the old Abbot Hall male dorm into a women's dormitory. It was not until 1899 that the State Agricultural College admitted its first African American student, William O. Thompson. After graduation, he taught at what is now Tuskegee University. PresidentJonathan L. Snyder invited its president Booker T. Washington to be the Class of 1900 commencement speaker.  Lenovo 3000 G530 4151 Laptop Keyboard

A few years later, Myrtle Craig became the first woman African-American student to enroll at the College. Along with the Class of 1907, she received her degree from U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, commencement speaker for the Semi-Centennial celebration. The City of East Lansing was incorporated in that same year,[12] and two years later the college officially changed its name to Michigan Agricultural College (M.A.C.). HP G61-400SP Laptop Keyboard

During the early 20th century, M.A.C. expanded its curriculum well beyond agriculture. By 1925 it had expanded enough that it changed its name to Michigan State College of Agriculture and Applied Science (M.S.C.). In 1941 the Secretary of the State Board of Agriculture, John A. Hannah, became president of the College. He began the largest expansion in the institution's history, with the help of the 1945 G.I. COMPAQ Presario CQ40-133TU Laptop Keyboard

Bill, which helped World War II veterans to receive an education. One of Hannah's strategies was to build a new dormitory building, enroll enough students to fill it, and use the income to start construction on a new dormitory. Under his plan, enrollment increased from 15,000 in 1950 to 38,000 in 1965.[13] In 1957 Hannah continued MSU's expansion by co-founding Michigan State University–Oakland, now Oakland University, with Matilda Dodge Wilson. HP 317443-001 Laptop Keyboard

Hannah also got the chance to improve the athletic reputation of M.S.C. when the University of Chicago resigned from the Big Ten Conference in 1946. Hannah lobbied hard to take its place, gaining admission in 1949.[14] Six years later, in its Centennial year of 1955, the State of Michigan renamed the College as Michigan State University of Agriculture and Applied Science.[15]  HP HDX18-1200 CTO Laptop Keyboard

Nine years after that, the University governing body changed its name from the State Board of Agriculture to the MSU Board of Trustees. The State of Michigan[16] allowed the University to drop the words "Agriculture and Applied Science" from its name. Since 1964 the institution has gone by the name of Michigan State University DELL Vostro 1014 Laptop Keyboard

In 1957, the donation of 1,500 acres (6.1 km2) in Pontiac Township, Michigan prompted creation of Michigan State University – Oakland. This donation was indicative of the University's benefactor community that continues today. That campus became officially independent in 1970 as Oakland University.

Since the end of the Hannah era, Michigan State has shifted its focus from increasing the size of its student body to advancing its national and global reputation. SONY Vaio PCG-K215S Laptop Keyboard

In September 2005, current president Lou Anna Simon called for MSU, one of the public ivy institutions, to become the global model leader for Land Grant institutions by the year 2012. Her plans include creating a newresidential college and increasing grants awarded from the National Institutes of Health past the US$100 million mark.  Lenovo 45N2141 laptop keyboard

While there are over 100 Land-grant universities in the United States, she has stated that she would like Michigan State University to be the leader.

Michigan State, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University created the University Research Corridor in 2006.[20] HP Pavilion dv6-2133ee laptop keyboard

This alliance was formed to transform and strengthen Michigan's economy by reaching out to businesses, policymakers, innovators, investors and the public to speed up technology transfer, make resources more accessible and help attract new jobs to the state.

On May 1, 2014, Michigan State University was named one of fifty five higher education institutions under investigation by the Office of Civil Rights “HP COMPAQ NX6320 laptop keyboard

for possible violations of federal law over the handling of sexual violence and harassment complaints” by Barack Obama's White House Task Force To Protect Students from Sexual Assault.[21] "The investigation at Michigan State involves its response to sexual harassment and sexual assault complaints involving students," according to one reporter.[22] It was later reported in the same paper that "An investigation by the U.S. ASUS X85S laptop keyboard

Department of Education into how Michigan State University handles sexual assault complaints was spurred by an incident in Wonders Hall in August 2010, a spokesman said."

MSU's sprawling campus is located in East Lansing, Michigan. The campus is perched on the banks of the Red Cedar River. Development of the campus started in 1856 with three buildings: a multipurpose building called College Hall, a dormitory later called "Saints' Rest",[24] and a barn. ASUS X53S laptop keyboard

Today, MSU's contiguous campus consists of 5,200 acres (21 km2), 2,000 acres (8.1 km2) of which are developed. There are 556 buildings: 100 for academics, 131 for agriculture, 166 for housing and food service, and 42 for athletics. Overall, the university has 22,763,025 square feet (2,114,754.2 m2) of total indoor space.[25] Connecting it all is 26 miles (42 km) of roads and 100 miles (160 km) of sidewalks.[26 LENOVO AEQA1STU010 laptop keyboard

] MSU also owns 44 non-campus properties, totaling 22,000 acres (89 km2) in 28 different counties.

The oldest part of campus lies on the north bank of the Red Cedar.[28]

It includes Collegiate Gothic architecture, plentiful trees, and curving roads with few straight lines. It was in this area that the College built its first three buildings, of which none survive.  Lenovo 3000 G530 4151 laptop keyboard

Other historic buildings north of the river include Cowles House, the president's official residence, and Beaumont Tower, a carillon clock tower marking the site of College Hall, the original classroom building. To the east lies Eustace–Cole Hall, America's first freestanding laboratory for horticulture.[29] Other landmarks include the bronze statue of former president John A. Hannah, COMPAQ Presario CQ40-133TU laptop keyboard

the W. J. Beal Botanical Garden, and the painted boulder known as "The Rock", which is a popular spot for theatre, tailgating, and candlelight vigils. On the northwest corner of campus lies the University's hotel, the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center. The university also has a museum, initiated in 1857. MSU Museum is one of the oldest museums in the Midwest and is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. Lenovo 3000 Y500 laptop keyboard

The campus south of the river consists mostly of post-World War II International Style buildings with sparse foliage, relatively straight roadways, and numerous parking lots. The "2020 Vision" Master Plan proposes replacing these parking lots with parking ramps and green space,[32] but these plans will take many years to reach fruition. HP Mini 110-3519la laptop keyboard

As part of the master plan, the University erected a new bronze statue of The Spartan in 2005 to be placed at the intersection of Chestnut and Kalamazoo, just south of the Red Cedar River. This replica replaced the original modernist terra cotta statue,[33] which can still be seen inside Spartan Stadium. Notable academic and research buildings on the South Campus include the Cyclotron and the College of Law. HP COMPAQ 486654-001 laptop keyboard

This part of campus is home to the MSU Horticulture Gardens and the adjoining 4-H Children's Garden. South of the gardens lie theCanadian National and CSX railroads, which divide the main campus from thousands of acres of university-owned farmland. The university's agricultural facilities include the Horse, Dairy Cattle, Beef Cattle, Sheep, SONY VAIO VGN-CS17G/R laptop keyboard

and Poultry Teaching and Research Farms, as well as the Air Quality Control Lab and the Diagnostics Center for Population and Animal Health.

In 2007, Michigan State University established an education center in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The chief officer of the campus was Brendan Mullen, Dean, Michigan State University Dubai. TOSHIBA Satellite L755-S5357 laptop keyboard

MSU Dubai was the first American university with a presence in Dubai International Academic City, with classes beginning in August 2008. The University offered six undergraduate programs: Business Administration; Child and Youth Development; Construction Project Management; Early Childhood Education; Media Management and Research; SONY N860-7676-T101 laptop keyboard

Computer Engineering, which later was changed to Electrical and Computer Engineering; and a Master's Degree in Human Resources & Labor Relations. The University attracted 100 students from all over the Middle East and beyond.[34] However, in 2010 MSU closed the program and the campus because of low enrollment, before any students had graduated. Packard Bell Easynote TK81 laptop keyboard

MSU made plans for the existing students to transfer either to the main campus in East Lansing or to other universities in the UAE.[35] MSU said the program would have needed 100–150 new students admitted each year to be viable, but was able to recruit only one-third of that number.[36][37]

MSU Dubai currently runs a small campus at Dubai Knowledge Village. It offered at first only one program, a master's program in human resources and labor relation. DELL E141395 laptop keyboard

In 2011 it added a master's program in Public Health. In April 2012, MSU Dubai announced that it hopes to begin in 2013 two programs in law: a LL.M program as well as a Master of Jurisprudence program.

The Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center doubles as a 4-star hotel and a business friendly conference center. HP 518965-001 laptop keyboard

It is located on the northwest corner of Michigan State University's campus, across from the Brody Complex, on Harrison Road just south of Michigan Avenue. The hotel has 160 rooms and suites which can accommodate anyone staying in East Lansing for a business conference, sporting event or an on-campus visit, but it originally served as a dormitory for MSU students. Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 laptop keyboard

Besides a lodging facility, the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center serves as a "learning laboratory for the 300–400 students each year that are enrolled in The School of Hospitality Business and other majors." The Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center strives to facilitate education by hosting conferences and seminars.

Michigan State offers a rolling admissions system, with an early admission deadline in October. MSU is considered "more selective" by the U.S. News & World Report.[39] LENOVO IdeaPad S10 20015 laptop keyboard

For Fall 2013, MSU received over 31,000 freshman applications, which is a record for the school, and admitted nearly 69% of them. Incoming freshman had an average high school GPA of 3.62.

MSU has the ninth largest student body in the U.S. For the fiscal year of 2009–10, the Office of the Registrar conferred 11,140 degrees.[41] The student body is 55% female and 45% male.  DELL Inspiron N4050 laptop keyboard

While 89% of students come from all 83 counties in the State of Michigan,[42] also represented are all 50 states in the U.S. and about 130 other countries.[3] In 2011–2012 5,898 international students enrolled at MSU. The top five countries represented: China, Korea, India, Taiwan and Canada.[43] MSU has about 4,500 faculty and 6,000 staff members, and a student/faculty ratio of 19:1. HP Mini 1151NR laptop keyboard

The $550 million facility will attract top researchers from around the world to conduct experiments in basic nuclear science, astrophysics, and applications of isotopes to other fields. Toshiba BFB0605HA CPU Fan

In 2004, scientists at the Cyclotron produced and observed a new isotope of the element germanium, called Ge-60[80] In that same year, Michigan State, in consortium with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the government of Brazil, broke ground on the 4.1-meter Southern Astrophysical Research Telescope (SOAR) in the Andes Mountains of Chile. HP Pavilion dv5-1174ca CPU Fan

The consortium telescope will allow the Physics & Astronomy department to study galaxy formation and origins.[81] Since 1999, MSU has been part of another consortium called the Michigan Life Sciences Corridor, which aims to develop biotechnology research in the State of Michigan.[82]Finally, the College of Communication Arts and Sciences' Quello Center researches current issues of information and communication management. Toshiba Satellite A110-101 CPU Fan

Michigan State University is a participant in the Committee on Institutional Cooperation. The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) is the academic consortium of the universities in the Big Ten Conference plus former conference member, theUniversity of Chicago. The initiative also allows students at participating institutions to take distance courses at other participating institutions. HP Pavilion dv5-1174ca CPU Fan

The initiative also forms a partnership of research. Engaging in $8 billion in research in 2010, CIC universities are providing powerful insight into important issues in medicine, technology, agriculture, and communities.[83]Students at participating schools are also allowed "in-house" viewing privileges at other participating schools' libraries.[84] They also employ collective purchasing, which has saved member institutions $19 million to date. HP 535442-001 CPU Fan

MSU's (private, non-Morrill Act) endowment started in 1916 when the Engineering Building burned down. Automobile magnate R.E. Olds helped the program stay afloat with a gift of $100,000.[86] There was a time when MSU lagged behind peer institutions in terms of endowments. As recently as the early 1990s, MSU was last among the eleven Big Ten schools, with barely over $100 million in endowment funds. HP Pavilion dv6-3049tx CPU Fan

This changed dramatically in the 2000s (decade), when the University started a campaign to increase the size of the endowment. At the close of fiscal year 2004–2005, the endowment had risen to $1.325 billion, raising the University to sixth of the 11 Big Ten schools in terms of endowment; within $2 million of the fifth-rated school.[87] ACER Aspire 5730Z Series CPU Fan

The rapid increase in the size of the endowment will help to improve outdated facilities, such as the Music Building, which the College of Music hopes to soon replace with money from its alumni fundraising program.

MSU has several residential colleges, based on the Oxbridge "living-learning" model. By putting classes in student dormitories, these colleges improve student access to faculty and facilities.  HP KSB06105HA CPU Fan

MSU's first residential college, Justin Morrill College started in 1965 with an interdisciplinary curriculum.[89] MSU closed Morrill College in 1979, but today the university has three residential colleges, including the recent opening of the Residential College in Arts & Humanities (RCAH) located in Snyder and Phillips halls.

Established in 1967, James Madison College is a smaller component residential college featuring multidisciplinary HP Pavilion dv5-2135dx CPU Fan

programs in the social sciences, founded on a model of liberal education. James Madison College is housed in Case Hall. Classes in the college are small, with an average of 25 students, and most instructors are tenure track faculty. James Madison College has about 1150 students total, with each freshman class containing about 320 students.[90] Toshiba Satellite L650-1MT CPU Fan

Each of Madison's four majors—Social Relations and Policy, International Relations, Political Theory and Constitutional Democracy, and Comparative Cultures and Politics[91]—requires two years of foreign language and one semester of "field experience" in an internship or study abroad program. Although Madison students make up about 4% of MSU graduates, they represent around 35% of the MSU's Phi Beta Kappa members. SONY Vaio VGN-NW350F CPU Fan

Also established in 1967, Lyman Briggs College teaches math and science within social, historical and philosophical contexts.[93]Many Lyman Briggs students intend to pursue careers in medicine, but the school supports over 30 coordinate majors, from human biology to computer sciences.[94] Lyman Briggs is one of the few colleges that lets undergraduates teach as "Learning Assistants."[ Toshiba Satellite M35X-S329 CPU Fan

MSU's newest residential college is the Residential College in Arts & Humanities. Founded October 21, 2005,[96] the college provides around 600 undergraduates with an individualized curriculum in the liberal, visual and performing arts. Though all the students will graduate with the same degree, MSU encourages students in the college to get a second degree or specialization.[97SONY Vaio VGN-TX2XP/B CPU Fan

East Lansing is very much a college town, with 60.2% of the population between the ages of 15 and 24.[150] President John A. Hannah's push to expand in the 1950s and 1960s resulted in the largest residence hall system in the United States.[151 IBM ThinkPad T42 2375 Laptop Keyboard

] Around 16,000 students live in MSU's 23 undergraduate halls, one graduate hall, and three apartment villages. Each residence hall has its own hall government, with representatives in the Residence Halls Association. Yet despite the size and extent of on-campus housing, the residence halls are complemented by a variety of housing options. GATEWAY MT6919 Laptop Keyboard

58% of students live off-campus,[152] mostly in the areas closest to campus, in either apartment buildings, former single-family homes, fraternity and sorority houses, or in a co-op.
