Take a look at the Michigan State University student experience—from the inside out. Follow nine Spartan undergraduates whose lives were documented throughout the fall 2013 semester by a team of undergraduate filmmakers for the MSU President's Report. Watch as they tap into MSU’s vast opportunities to create their own paths of extreme personalization.
Stay tuned as we reveal the students featured in the project and their individual previews during the next few weeks, culminating March 27 in the public release of the final 30-minute documentary and a special President's Report website that will include video, photos and more.
