It's a pretty fantastic time to be a Spartan, no? Thanks to one more thrilling, last-minute win, the football team is ranked No. 3 and headed to the national playoffs. (I think my heart went back to normal sometime around 4 a.m. Sunday) Our basketball team continued its unbeaten streak and is ranked No. 1 in the country. MSU is certainly in the national spotlight and it feels pretty darn good. But did you know there's another Spartan team ranked in the top three in the nation? That would be the MSU Debate Team. That's right, there are national weekly rankings of debate and we're ranked number three - right ahead of Harvard. I've met a lot of Spartans in my time here - students, faculty members, employees, alumni and athletes. While we're all playing on our own fields, there are common threads that run through every Spartan. Whether reaching higher to score a needed touchdown, or studying harder to secure a Rhodes scholarship like MSU soccer captain Sarah Kovan just did, there's a never-ending drive to succeed. It doesn't matter if a Spartan is shooting three-pointers or debating energy policy - giving up is never an option.

December lights

December 9, 2015 - 10:41am
A classic MSU lantern lights the way on a December night. The original lanterns were built in approximately 1929 and lasted through the 1980s, when it became obvious that the lanterns were in disrepair and needed to be replaced. Although the university had the option to replace the lanterns with modern lamps, the crew working on the lantern replacements decided to create an exact replica of the old lanterns.

It's a gas: Improving MRI's capability to detect lung diseases

December 9, 2015 - 9:09am
Sometime in the future, patients will inhale a magnetized gas, have an MRI on their lungs, and learn if they have asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or perhaps something worse. But for that to happen, the techniques needed to magnetize the gas that a patient inhales to make the MRI image useable need to be perfected. And that is where Michigan State University research comes in.
