Spartan Magic

After a successful summer and the start of an exciting fall, we feel it now more than ever.

When I think about this year’s Homecoming theme, “Spartans Bring the Magic,” I reflect on the truth behind that statement. I see that magic every day in our alumni’s generosity, dedication and passion for Michigan State.

This summer brought Spartans together in many places and many ways. Spartan spirit thrived at golf outings, picnics and student send-offs—a spirit we have carried into fall semester.

The season is in full swing, and our first-ever Spartans Serve Week is in the books. To all the Spartans around the world who volunteered their time and efforts, we thank you. We claim a proud tradition of service at MSU, and the impact you make carries on that important legacy. We look forward to continuing Spartans Serve Week on an annual basis.

This time of year, Homecoming is on everyone’s mind. Taking place Oct. 10-15, “Spartans Bring the Magic,” is a celebration of Spartans across the globe who are creating real-life magic by making the world a better place. We look forward to welcoming all to campus for a lineup of festivities, including the annual Homecoming parade (Oct. 14). Last year’s parade was a great success, and we hope to see you this year as this longstanding MSU tradition marches into 2022 and beyond.

Another tradition that deserves recognition is this year’s Homecoming Court. As one of the highest honors for MSU seniors, these 12 Spartans continually demonstrate their commitment to making the university and the world a better place. A warm congratulations to these fine students.

Also happening Homecoming week is the annual Kedzie Luncheon, where we honor the 50-year class. This year’s celebration of our 1972 alumni will welcome Mike Morrow as the guest speaker.

It’s an eventful season, and fall is always a special time in East Lansing. None of it would mean as much without you by our side. The hard work, pride and camaraderie our fellow alumni show the world every day—that’s Spartan magic.

Go Green!
