It's not a surprise our student Spartans are so driven and talented when we look at what the faculty who teach them is doing during the academic year. All while instructing an insane amount of classes and inspiring second language and culture acquisition, these faculty members are taking on amazing and exciting adventures that all demand grueling hours of work! From making movies, to writing books, to research that takes them around the world, our faculty prove each and everyday that having them here on the banks of the Red Cedar is a victory for MSU!
