Happy Birthday!

February 12, 2014 - 12:11pm
Who knew 159 years old could look so fantastic? Sure, I suppose there has been a facelift or two throughout the years and even a couple of name changes, but dang, MSU is looking pretty awesome (though snow covered) on its birthday. That's right, in addition to Abe Lincoln and Charles Darwin, Michigan State University is celebrating its birthday today, more officially called Founder's Day. On Feb. 12, 1855 Michigan Gov. Kinsley S. Bingham signed into law an act for the establishment of the Agricultural College of the State of Michigan, now known as Michigan State University. It was the prototype for 69 land-grant institutions established under the Morrill Act of 1862. All these years later, MSU is looking remarkable. Yes, the campus is beautiful, but what's really remarkable is so much deeper than the surface of pretty buildings and lovely grounds. What's remarkable is just how much impact this place has had in the world since that day 159 years ago. I wonder if anyone back then truly grasped the importance of what they were doing or just how much a difference one college could make. How many hundreds of thousands of students have passed through these doors and gained knowledge and experiences that forever changed their lives? How many people got solid foundations of learning and skill that allowed them to leave here and go out and change this world for better?
