Hi everyone,

December 1986 graduate. I got out of Lyman Briggs School the hard way--I completed it. After teaching for three years I returned to school (LSSU) and earned an engineering degree and worked twelve years in the automotive field. I cannot say I loved it, it made me way to cynical. for the last four years I've been the EH&S Coordinator at a biomass power plant outside of Flint. Owosso is my home and is a cozy place for Spartans. The town is pretty evenly split: 35% MSU fans/alum, 35% UoM fans/alum, 30% can hardly spell MSU or UoM let alone attend one or the other. Ha! Actually, it is a very nice place to call home and the neighborhood is very friendly.

My goal is to get back to my MSU weight which is about 80% of where I am now.

1985 Graduate!! B.S. of Biology. Live and work in Lansing. Grew up in Fennville, watching sunset on the Lake. Just like Universities there is only one Lake. Married a Jackson man who grew up bleeding blue and gold, I keep telling him it makes GREEN.

Crunkyjens!

Love how you said 'ole-hot-lanta! Cracked me up!


I have a short, but very deep love for good ol' MSU! In 2003 I graduated with a B.S. in Merchandising Management. Shortly after, I moved to the suburbs of Philadelphia and have been here ever since. West Virginia is where I call home and am also a HUGE fan of the WVU Mountaineers. I bleed very weird colors, lol!

Anyway, Hi to everyone in this sparkteam. Let's get things poppin.

lol!

Hi everyone!!

I'm originally from Grand Rapids, MI and an '06 grad with a B.A. in Criminal Justice. I now call Central Florida my home, but not for long! Will be moving to Atlanta in early Fall to be with the love of my life who I also met at MSU while we were both there! (He had been living with me here in Florida but last November he took a great job opportunity in ole Hot-lanta! lol)

Like all of you, I will always bleed green no matter what! emoticon

Sometimes when we get the more summer-like weather in what are supposed to be the cold months (Jan-March) I miss walking to my classes in a foot of snow, shivering all the way!) I lived in McDonel Hall for 2 years, then moved off campus over by Chandler Crossings for my last year (is it even called that anymore? lol)

Let's go Spartan Sparkers!

A Goal Without A Plan is Just a Wish.

Hi everyone, I am a 2006 grad with a BA in Communication. If they had a retail management degree when I went, I probably would have gone that way instead. I now live in the Jackson area (south of Lansing) but I still get up to the Lansing area sometimes. I love MSU! And I miss school tremendously.

Hello fellow Spartans! I am an '84,'86, and '93 grad (yes, I have 3 degrees from MSU which means my blood is truly green!). I still live and work in the Lansing area. I heard about the board from a colleage and was impressed so I ended up suggesting it to a number of my clients. Since I still live here I get to enjoy the green & white experience first-hand, but have many fond memories of Dooley's (was a bouncer there back in the day), Holmes Hall and endless treks across the best campus in the Big Ten, hands down!
Good luck with all your endeavors and GO STATE!

Hello, fellow SPARTANS! Class of '05 here (B.A. Public Admin and Policy; B.A. IDS-International Studies)! While at State, I lived in Holden Hall and McDonel Hall... I am now living and loving the D.C. life!

I just wanted to take a moment to say hello, and wish everyone luck with their goals! :)

Hi everyone!

My name is Kelly and I am kinda new to the MSU sparkteam. I am proud to show my green and white wherever I go. I live outside of Philadelphia now with my Husband, so everyone around me is a HUGE PENN STATE fan. ICK! LOL!
I am from West Virginia(GOOOOO MOUNTAINEERS), graduate from MSU in 2003 and moved out to the suburbs of Philly after that!
It is time to get back into shape and be healthy. I've started running again and putting some strength training in my routine as well.

ANYWAY...HELLO EVERYONE!

I graduated from Alma, but my husband is a huge MSU fan. We even had Sparty show up to our wedding reception - I have a bazillion pictures of him with our guests, and out on the dance floor doing the hustle!

Hurray - Go State! I just started my journey today on Spark and I'm so glad to have found people who share my love for MSU. It is hard to say what year I graduated since I have 3 degrees from State and I received them all different years! The last was an MS in Agriculture and Extension Education in 1993. I taught high school in a couple of rural areas in Michigan for almost 10 years. I do miss working with students, which is why I volunteer my time now at Frederick Meijer Gardens in GR. I help give education tours and teach some of the special courses they offer.

I'm looking forward to the weight loss journey as it is my first step to changing a few things in my life. I'll be back here soon!

Thank you! I've always wanted to teach urban. I will be starting off with Spanish 2, and throughout the year I will be adding more preps, which will probably include a Pre-AP Spanish class. Hopefully I can find time somewhere in there to get some experience in my minor (TESOL) but there are only 6 students with limited English proficiency at this particular school.

So glad to have you here! Congrats on your recent graduation. I also thank you for your commitment to public education and your choice to teach at Detroit Public. I am a school board member in West Michigan and I feel strongly about our inner city schools succedding.

My daughter is in a Spanish Immersion program here, what will you be teaching at DPS?

SuzyQuzy - love the comment about the boys' college choice! I've told my girls something similar - the only other M school that they can attend with my blessing is MIT!

I am a 93 grad with a BS in Packaging. I now stay at home with my three boys ages 6, 7 and 8. I have my boys totally brain washed, they know State is the ONLY University in Michigan. They already know if they decide to go to the other place I am taking there college money and buying myself a Corvette. (I would, too,)
I lived in West Akers and then in the Riverside Dump and a house on Kedzie. I miss East Lansing.

Class of '81, BA in Retail Management. Now they just combined the ol' department with the College of Communications-the College of Human Ecology is no more. Lived in Landon Hall and Cedar Village. Have 3 daughters- 21 and a set of 17 year old twins. Have battled a little cancer 2 1/2 years ago and still clear. Now to get the weight off that came on with the cancer. Work for myself now for 13 years and that helped when I was ill. Would love to share my business with others.
