      Description

      Michigan State University is a university in East Lansing, Michigan near the state capital of Lansing. Michigan State University is known for its programs in agriculture and veterinary medicine. The school's most famous alum may be former basketball superstar Magic Johnson. Michigan State University was founded as the Agricultural College of the State of Michigan in 1855 as an act of the Michigan Legislature; the school was the first agricultural college in the United States and served as a prototype for future agricultural institutions as would be defined by the Morrill Act.

      The Michigan State University campus is located in East Lansing on the banks of the Red Cedar River; the campus is bordered by Michigan and Grand River Avenues to the north, Mount Hope Road to the south, Harrison Avenue roughly west, and Hagadorn Road to the east. The southwest corner of the university has access to Interstate 96.

      With its large student body, MSU has a wide variety of campus activities. ASMSU is the undergraduate students' union. It is known for its unusual bicameral structure, which includes the parallel Student Assembly and Academic Assembly. The State News is the widely distributed campus newspaper. Other important campus groups include COGS, the Council of Graduate Students, RHA, the MSU Resident Life Association, and the Greek System, which has had a moderate but loyal following compared to other major universities.

      Michigan State University is also credited with developing cisplatin, a leading cancer fighting drug, and homogenization of milk amongst many other recent innovations.
