MSU Students Celebrate NCAA Advancement

Posted:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - The buzz of March Madness could be felt all over the MSU campus.

 

 

Eyes were glued to every television screen at the Brody Square Dining Hall on campus Thursday. The games even had some students re-scheduling their day to watch MSU play Valpariaiso.

 

 

Not everyone ditched their books though. Sophomore Chelsea Tinney didn't have class, but she's not ruling out that option in the future.

It's a decision MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon wants students to re-evaluate.

"I think you need to make sure your academic performance meets the highest standards, just like Tom wants the basketball team to make the highest standards," said Simon.

 

 

"I definitely have us going pretty far in the tournament, so I feel like today's not as future dates here," said MSU freshman Kent Blatchford.

 

But for those spartan fans who literally wear their heart on their sleeve, every game counts to get to the Final Four.

"You always gotta rep Spartans all the time," said MSU junior John Cioffi. "I'd drop everything if we made it that far. I mean, I did skip class today to watch this game."
