We’re reminded it wouldn’t be Michigan weather without a little unpredictability as snow fell on campus on April 25. Hopefully students wishing for one more snow day in the last week of classes weren’t too disappointed that it quickly melted. Photo by Derrick L. Turner.

As part of Take Your Child to Work Day, detective Martha Hausbeck gave junior Spartans a glimpse of what it’s like to work at the Department of Police and Public Safety. Families were able to tour the department, get a closer look at police vehicles, see a K9 demonstration and meet some of the officers. Organized by the MSU WorkLife Office, this year’s Take Your Child to Work Day included 40 events across campus for children and their families to explore, showcasing all the different units and careers that MSU has to offer.
