Major: Arabic with a minor in Global Studies (for now!)
Hometown: Cheboygan, MI
Favorite place on campus: Anywhere on North Campus in the fall… I love the old-school (literally) collegiate feel. It’s great for photography, the Red Cedar is relaxing (as long as you don’t get too close…ew), and sunsets are especially beautiful.
Why you chose MSU: My original plan was to major in Linguistics, and the only other place in the state that offers it is Little Sister, and I’ve been a Spartan as long as I can remember so the choice was clear. At AOP, I learned about our Arabic Flagship Program (which is fantastic!), which was all the more reason to come here. Plus, I needed to get out of my tiny hometown.
Favorite Dairy Store flavor: Final Four Slapshot - I’m not sure if I love it more because it’s delicious or because I love being a member of Slapshots and MSU hockey.
Barely able to talk, he’d sit in the stands and watch his aunt, Annette, play basketball for Michigan State. When he wasn’t hiding in fear from the scary Spartans mascot, Green would look at his mother full of earnestness and in toddler mumbo-jumbo, announce: “I go Michigan State and pway basketball.”
Congratulations to Draymond Green on 1,000 rebounds!
"It’s more than scoring points. That’s an award, that’s a club, a very small club and one that I’m glad he got to celebrate with our fans. It meant a lot to him and so I was happy when he got that last rebound." - Tom Izzo
“It requires players understanding that how they’re being challenged isn’t personal but, rather, productive. And it also requires me not minding when people say that Day-Day has become a second coach with how he pushes his teammates. I don’t mind.”—Tom Izzo
Interested in what I do here on campus? Want to make a difference in the lives of prospective students and their families visiting here? The Student Alumni Foundation is looking for dedicated and enthusiastic Spartans who love MSU and want to share their knowledge about it with others. The application process has started for next year’s guides and if you think the program might be a good fit for you, now is the time to go for it! All Spartan Ambassadors are volunteers, but the application process is still quite rigorous. If selected, you will go through training this spring to get you ready to start giving full-fledged tours in the fall.
If you have any questions whatsoever, please let me know. The application can be found on the above linked website, along with other details about the program.
