Friendship forged by a Frisbee

The start to the Mel Tucker era officially began with a shock defeat to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights last Saturday. But this year, the home opener looked quite different inside Spartan Stadium; instead of a packed student section, cardboard cutouts looked on from the fifty yard line. But it was not just the two-legged fans who were missing. It was also one with four, and a tail. Zeke the Wonder Dog has been a staple of MSU’s home football games since the late 1970s.

MSU Paranormal Society goes hunting for ghosts at Fairchild Auditorium

There’s no such thing as ghosts, right? The Michigan State Paranormal Society is here to prove you wrong. A rumor of a ghost sighting at the Fairchild Auditorium has been passed down through the Paranormal Society over the years. While there has been the claim that a few buildings on campus are haunted, such as Mayo hall, there’s no actual evidence of ghosts. Co-President of the Paranormal Society, Ben Goldman, takes us to the auditorium in hopes of finding a ghost.

Flat rate tuition officially goes into effect at Michigan State

After it was voted on back in Fall of 2018, flat rate tuition has officially been in effect since the start of the semester. The flat rate cost is the equivalent of what 15 credit hours cost prior to the new flat rate installation. Now that the semester is two months, students have mixed feelings about how flat rate is affecting their schedule and the classes they’re taking. “I took all the classes I needed to take to graduate on time and then I had room to take this piano class and it’s really interesting and I’ve learned a lot so far,” said senior Xavier Mattison. With the new flat rate, Mattison felt he could take advantage by taking an elective, and if it wasn’t for flat rate, he probably wouldn’t have taken his additional piano class without it.

The Art Lab is a collaborative, creative space for all

Located directly across the Broad Art Museum, students and community members can join studio sessions to learn how to create things. “We are a space that has gallery, as well as studio space where you can engage in hands-on activities where you can make a little bit of your own art, we also have lots of social space, a store, we hope to see both visitors from the campus and the community.” Director of Education at Broad Art Museum, Michelle Word said.
