It actually is easy being green
Kelly, forest, moss, olive, lime, emerald, mint, chartreuse—there’s a long list of greens that exist in the world. But for me, there’s none more beautiful than the truest green of all—Spartan green. Every good Spartan knows when a cry of “Go Green” is heard, a response of “Go White” is required. With half a million MSU alumni around the world, there’s an excellent chance of finding someone to finish the cheer in places far away from Spartan Stadium. I’ve run into other Spartans in a Montreal garden, Times Square, the National Zoo, a Glasgow pub, and on planes and beaches. The most surprising was when I walked into a hotel lobby in the far-flung city of Lilongwe, Malawi, and literally ran into a man wearing a Spartan basketball shirt. Though he wasn’t an alumnus, he had recently been to campus to visit his cousin who is a student. And he did know the appropriate response to “Go Green.” Now that spring has finally sprung here in East Lansing, the green is abundant. Lush canopies of leaves, fields of grass perfect for a picnic, more varieties of plants than you can imagine, and explosions of flowers are everywhere you look. But Spartan green is much more than just a color or a cheer. It’s how we work. It’s what we study. It’s who we are.View story photos
