Michigan State University President’s Report

Take a look at the Michigan State University student experience—from the inside out. Follow nine Spartan undergraduates whose lives were documented throughout the fall 2013 semester by a team of undergraduate filmmakers for the MSU President's Report. Watch as they tap into MSU’s vast opportunities to create their own paths of extreme personalization.

Check out some previews below for each of the Spartans featured and then visit a special President's Report website that includes a 30-minute documentary on all the students and individual pages for each that includes additional video, photos and more.
