This year’s Homecoming theme, Spartans Journey Together, highlights and recognizes Dr. Barbara Ross-Lee as the 2021 Grand Marshal.


SPARTANS JOURNEY TOGETHER

As Spartans, we journey together. We journey campus by exchanging ideas, extending helping hands and cheering each other on every step of the way. We journey beyond East Lansing to combine our knowledge, skills and passions in pursuit of a brighter world. And when times are the toughest, we know the only way to journey is to journey together.
