Alexis Alston has been known as an athlete, a track star, a tomboy, and a straight-A student, but as of this year, she is also known as a beauty queen. Alexis, better known as Lexy, will be representing Ingham County in the Miss Michigan USA beauty pageant. The winner of the Miss Michigan USA pageant will go on to represent the state of Michigan in the Miss USA pageant.

Students that hid together continue to heal together

On the night of Feb. 13, I was in the same place I would always be on a Monday night: the Spartan Sports Report newsroom in the Communication Arts and Sciences building at Michigan State University. That night allowed many of us within the Spartan Sports Report to grow closer to one another than we ever expected to be.

The Listening Bus is back, and it’s all ears

The Capital Area Transportation Authority launched a feedback program in late January to improve rider experience. This program is known as The Listening Bus.

During these sessions, CATA employees ride along with everyday bus riders and simply ask them for their feedback. Riders will also be provided with a survey form to help CATA get a better understanding of their perspectives.

Riders who want to participate in one of the Listening Bus sessions can also fill out a form online that will be given directly to CATA employees.
