From East Lansing with Love | MSU Homecoming 2020

The MSU Alumni Office is gearing up for a unique year and excited to announce that we will be celebrating Homecoming virtually, Sept. 21-26. We will be providing opportunities for Spartans to connect with campus and each other virtually throughout homecoming week. Visit the Homecoming website for updates as events and opportunities become available.

Homecoming Theme

For many, home is a mindset. It is familiarity; shared experiences; a place that’s defined by memories and traditions, rather than a location on a map. Regardless of where we are in the world, we are united by a common thread this homecoming season: being Spartans. It’s a label that knows no boundaries. While we come from different places, industries and walks of life, we are one

Through our virtual Homecoming celebrations this year, we look back on our MSU legacies as we create our own traditions for the future, making ripples of impact along the way. And somehow, when we’re apart, we can end up feeling closer than ever.

No, we aren’t physically coming home to East Lansing this year. But we are sharing the energy of East Lansing — the energy that has led us to where we are today.

Grand Marshal

Who better to serve as the 2020 Homecoming Grand Marshal than Sparty himself? Join Sparty in the festivities as we celebrate our memories, tradition and all of our favorite things about East Lansing. This year will be unlike any other, but Spartans are up for the challenge! Sometimes we just need our friend Sparty to lead the way, especially when it comes to school spirit! 

Speaking of memories and traditions, check out this history behind the world's greatest mascot.

Homecoming Court

The 2020-2021 Homecoming Court exemplifies what it means to be a Spartan. Even through uncertain and difficult times, these students have demonstrated leadership, spirit, integrity and achievement through their contributions and involvement at MSU.


Happy homecoming, Spartans. From East Lansing, with love.
