New Year, Same Spartans Will.

MSU News - January 6, 2016 - 11:36am
Well, the New Year didn't exactly start the way most Spartans hoped it would. Instead of celebrating a Cotton Bowl victory as the clock struck midnight, we had to raise our glasses to the end of a fantastic season. It was disappointing, to be sure, but as Spartans, we have nothing to hang our heads about. Not only did 2015 bring us lots of excitement on game days, we had loads of Spartan successes on and off the field all year long. If you can't remember all of them, check out this super cool video my colleagues Anthony Siciliano and Ellen Doepke put together highlighting Spartan wins in 2015. I double dog dare you not to feel incredibly proud to be a Spartan after watching it. 2016 will be no different. Every single day, Spartans will be facing new challenges and scoring more wins in classrooms, laboratories, hospitals and businesses - the list goes on and on.
