Celebrating 78 years of The Spartan statue

From Beaumont Tower to Spartan Stadium, Michigan State University’s campus is filled with iconic locations — and The Spartan statue is no exception. Dedicated June 9, 1945, the nearly 10-foot sculpture has stood tall for 78 years. A meeting place and landmark for decades, The Spartan statue will be a special place on this campus home for years to come.
