Distinctly different

October 14, 2015 - 2:54pm
In a room decked out in Spartan flags, I watched my two interns talk with an alumnus who graduated decades before they were even born and has achieved tremendous success in his field. I watched them, on the cusp of their careers, use their best journalism skills to get their story. They were professional; he was charming and humble. I observed the two students work together seamlessly and immediately connect with a gentleman from a different world and age. All were enjoying the conversation and I was reminded just how vast and varied our Spartan family is yet how we are all bound together. I stepped outside and into the middle of the Homecoming parade lineup. There were bands, dancers, students, administrators, athletes, sororities, fraternities, extra-curricular clubs and more. Each group was distinctly different, but all Spartans. The following day, I sat in the cold rain at the football game watching thousands of people from all backgrounds cheer on our team. The next Monday, I attended a beautiful concert put on by MSU's College of Music at the Fairchild Theatre. I saw deans, young students, older community members, international students, administrators, researchers, faculty and staff. Again, I sat in a diverse crowd brought together as Spartans. We watched an incredible group of individually talented faculty performers collaborate on stage to create an incredibly powerful piece that moved us to deliver a standing ovation.
