Thanks to annual gifts, some of MSU's best experiences, liveliest landmarks and most helpful community resources continue to thrive.

The list below highlights a few of those places—from the one end of MSU's bustling campus to the other—that couldn't be what they are without the annual support of donors. These familiar spots represent some of the most iconic places and programs that are enriching the lives of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and, really—people worldwide!—as they learn, grow and discover through programs and initiatives across campus, and beyond.

So when you look at a map of campus, we hope you realize that as an annual donor, you contribute to the excellence, access and opportunity that makes MSU special in all of these places and many more. We can never say thank you enough, so let us say it one more time, loud and clear. Thank you for making an annual gift!
