  • Globie Awards Ceremony
    2017-04-05 16:00:00 2017-04-05 18:00:00 40 Globie Awards Ceremony


    The journey of international students and scholars can be challenging and those who undertake challenges sometimes need help along the way. The Office for International Students and Scholars (OISS) is only one of many offices on campus that work with MSU's international population. Everyone on our campus and in our community plays a role in the internationalization of MSU.

    This award is given to individuals who have distinguished themselves by their service to international students and scholars. OISS will honor these unsung heroes who, through acts of sheer kindness both small and large, help international students and scholars through the challenges that they face. 

    The time to honor the Globie Award winners is on April 5, 2017 from 4-6 p.m. on the third floor of the international center!

  • MSU Science Festival
    2017-04-07 07:45:00 2017-04-23 17:00:00 40 MSU Science Festival

    he MSU Science Festival is an amazing, multi-day series of events that highlight the fascinating, though oft overlooked, fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (a.k.a. STEAM). Now, hold onto your hats...the Festival features talks, demonstrations, tours, open houses, guest speakers, hands-on activities, and much more! You will have the opportunity to explore the latest in cutting edge science; discover concepts that have been influencing new discoveries for centuries; exchange ideas with researchers; and participate first-hand in experiments that turn ideas into reality--You really have to experience it to believe it! 

    Many first timers arrive thinking the Festival is for kids only, but they are quickly (and quite brilliantly!) surprised to discover countless programs and presentations everyone wants to see- from from the oldest to the youngest, from the novice to the knowledgeable! We encourage you to thoroughly explore the schedule page, and note everything everyone wants to visit- this way no one in your party misses out on anything! 

    You may also like to keep in mind that the Festival works in partnership with a number of outstanding institutions, museums, science centers and STEAM professionals across the state; so in addition to events being offered on the E. Lansing Campus of Michigan State University, presentations are also offered in a variety of locations throughout Michigan. Be sure to explore new territory and have a great time discovering the many incredible resources available right here in Michigan!
