Save Our Spartan Polar Bear

Every day, for the past half a century, our Spartan polar bear has stood watch as students have learned, worked and explored campus all around him. But his years of being a fixture in the Natural Resources Building on campus have taken a toll.

Nearly 50 years old, our Spartan polar bear needs major restoration. It’s time for our bear to get a makeover—and it’s critical to his survival.

At nine feet tall and 300 pounds, our Spartan polar bear is part of this MSU community and needs our help to be restored. He’s a meeting spot for clubs, study friend for students and generally lifts the spirits of anyone who passes by.

We want to preserve these memories and save our Spartan polar bear!

We Need Your Support

We hope to raise $6,000 to restore our Spartan polar bear to his former glory and allow him to stand tall in the Natural Resources Building for another 50 years.

We need your help! Every little bit can help—even $10 can go a long way toward reaching our goal.

Your Support Will Make a Big Impact

The longer we wait the greater the cost to preserve our Spartan polar bear. So please consider making a donation to save our Spartan polar bear!

For years, our Spartan polar bear has been an icon for the campus community. Let’s face it, everyone knows who he is—we gather in front of him and we pass by him to show our friends. These memories last a lifetime. Let’s help our Spartan polar bear be here for the next generation of students.
