Glow Green!

Show your Spartan spirit by swapping your front porch, window or any other light that can “glow” with a green bulb during Homecoming Week, Monday October 10-Saturday, October 15.

By glowing green, Spartans outside of East Lansing can participate in this Homecoming tradition even if they’re unable to make it back to campus. This also allows for MSU alumni and friends to identify each other and let the world know they are celebrating MSU’s Homecoming.
