This fall, two residence halls that had shut down for renovations throughout the last year will be re-open – Landon, in the North Neighborhood, and Butterfield, which is part of the Brody Neighborhood.
In addition, a new, state-of-the-art dining facility – Heritage Commons – will be opening for business in Landon Hall.
Also available this fall is the recently opened media center located in the MSU Union. Because students are increasingly asked to produce videos, graphics and other visuals for classes, the center will provide them the tools to do so, including Photo Shop access, In-Design and even a room with a green screen for the production of videos.
Housing more than 14,500 students, MSU has one of the largest on-campus residence hall systems in the country.
Here are some other notable events occurring during Fall Welcome:

Most roads, sidewalks and pathways will be open for move-in days, with the exception of the area surrounding MSU’s Facility for Rare Isotope Beams project. That project maintains ongoing pedestrian detours around the construction site and also has lane restrictions on Wilson Road.

(Editor’s note: MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon will be on campus Sunday welcoming new students and their families. For a detailed schedule of where she will be, contact Jennifer Orlando or Tom Oswald, Communications and Brand Strategy.)
