President's Reception for Graduates
The MSU Alumni Office, along with the Division of Student Life & Engagement, invites graduating students to a reception at Cowles House prior to each commencement.
Join fellow graduates at historic Cowles House for an evening celebrating your accomplishments and time at Michigan State University. Enjoy complimentary food and beverages, have a professional photo taken with Interim President Woodruff and meet Sparty and get a photo with him.
This invitation extends only to graduating students in the current semester and cannot be transferred to friends or family. The spring receptions also include students graduating summer semester.
For spring 2023, invitations will be emailed in mid-March to all students who have applied for graduation. Students choose one of the two dates to attend.
Check out the photos from the fall 2022 graduate reception. And the photos from the spring and summer 2022 graduate reception.
