Celebrating Beaumont Tower's 92nd birthday

Though for many the term “campus icon” evokes images of green and white colors, The Spartan, or even Spartan Stadium, Beaumont Tower was recognized as the definitive icon of Michigan State University long before many of the symbols we know today existed. Dedicated on June 22, 1929, the bells of Beaumont Tower have inspired Spartans for 92 years, chiming gently each day and reminding us how proud we are to call Michigan State, home.
