RSVP to Admitted Mustangs Day

As a tour guide, my favorite part of giving tours to prospective students is seeing their faces as they fall in love with our campus and the environment we have created as a student body. I enjoy seeing the students' reactions as they hear something unique about MSU, from our dorm room layouts to our academic building. I also delight in displaying school spirit to students thinking of becoming part of our family.
