Research Facilities

Michigan State University was founded in 1855 as the first agricultural college in the United States and was the protype of the land-grant universities. MSU is regarded as an outstanding educational institution. The student population of about 40,000, which includes post-graduates, experiences a stimulating and challenging academic environment on a scenic and park-like campus with easy access to the recreational and cultural activities of the mid-Michigan area. Extensive greenhouse space is located on the East Lansing campus, and several experimental farms also are located on campus. PBGB students also conduct studies at one or more of the 15 Agricultural Research Stations located throughout Michigan.

In addition, the MSU commitment to research and graduate programs allows students access to these major research facilities.
