Review: Michigan State University (MSU) is a public research university in East Lansing, Michigan USA. Founded in 1855, it was the pioneer land-grant institution and served as a model for future land-grant colleges in the United States under the 1862 Morrill Act. MSU pioneered the studies of packaging, hospitality business, telecommunication, and music therapy. Today its study-abroad program is the largest of any single-campus university in the country, offering more than 200 programs in more than 60 countries on all continents including Antarctica. It is considered to be one of America's Public Ivy universities, which recognizes top public research universities in the United States. Following the introduction of the Morrill Act, the college became coeducational and expanded its curriculum beyond agriculture. After World War II, the number of students tripled as the institution became a major university. Today, MSU is the ninth-largest university in the United States, with 47,071 students and 2,954 faculty members. The school's nuclear physics, engineering, political science, business, journalism, education, and osteopathic medicine programs are among the nation's best. MSU's Division I sports teams are called the Spartans. They compete in the Big Ten Conference in all sports except ice hockey, in which the team is part of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association. MSU's football team won the Rose Bowl in 1954, 1956, and 1988 and boasts six national championships. Its men's basketball team won the NCAA National Championship in 1979 and 2000 while currently enjoying a streak of six Final Four appearances in the last 13 seasons. MSU men's ice hockey has won national titles in 1966, 1986, and 2007. Cross country has historically been Michigan State's most successful sport, especially during a four-decade period spanning roughly 1930В–1970 during which the Spartans won eight NCAA championships and numerous other conference and national titles.
