Once a Spartan, Always a Spartan
From painting the rock to the Midnight Scream, the Spartan experience is known for its strong traditions and shared memories. These traditions unite us — not just during our time on campus, but for a lifetime.
Do you have a favorite memory from MSU? We’d love to hear and share your stories as we celebrate the class of 1973. If you're willing, please click the button below to tell us about your time on campus.
Your memories and traditions are what makes MSU a special place. Take a look at "Thy Praises, MSU: Treasures and Traditions of Michigan State University."
The Kedzie Cane
The Kedzie Cane, also known as the “Kedzie Old-Timers Stick,” is a tradition that dates back to 1931. It was in that year that former president, Frank S. Kedzie, donated a cane that was previously owned by his father, Robert Clark Kedzie. The cane itself is 37 inches long, features intricate carvings and is made from coffee wood. Starting in 1929 at the suggestion of Dr. Kedzie, MSU began hosting an event for alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago. It was at the third annual luncheon that the cane was presented to the oldest living alumnus in attendance, Daniel Strange, class of 1867.
