It was standing room only last night in a lecture hall in MSU’s Communication Arts and Sciences (CAS) Building for the first of two public forums held by the University to address the possible sale of WKAR-TV’s broadcasting spectrum.
The Rally to Condemn Hate Speech took place last night, and the turnout was loud and large. The median on Grand River Avenue off of Abbot Road was filled to the brim with protestors uniting to condemn the statements made by those who refuse to accept refugees into the United States.

Are you having a difficult time finding unique gifts for your Spartan fan this holiday season? Wondering what to get your parent, loved one, or friend who can’t fit one more piece of Spartan apparel in their dresser or closet? Look no further than MSU’s campus for some different gift ideas.
Saturday night was a big win for the Michigan State Spartans, but not all students ended the evening on a positive note. Eight students were arrested in Cedar Village for alcohol-related violations after students flooded the streets and lit couches on fire to celebrate the Big Ten Championship victory.
ELPD’s Lt. Wriggelsworth said thirteen fires took place Saturday night after the game. The fires occurred in predominantly student-rental areas of East Lansing, including Cedar Village as well as North Harrison.
As I stepped off the plane, the first thing I noticed about China was the traffic. A Chinese student who was traveling with me and fifteen other students from Michigan State University noticed the traffic, as well.
“Just so you know, guys. The cars won’t stop for you. So watch what you’re doing.”
And true to his warning, the cars heeded no rules. I often found myself leaping back onto the curb to avoid catastrophe.
But traffic and reckless drivers aren’t unique to China. I’ve had my fair share of near-collisions in East Lansing, too.

Seth Meyers, the current host of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and the previous Head Writer of “Saturday Night Live” visited Michigan State University on the evening of November 6th to give a talk as part of the Xfinity EntertainU speaker series.
MSU was notified just days in advance that it had won the lecture as part of the Comcast-sponsored contest in which students vote for their university online to win a visit. The event was filmed by Comcast Xfinity and will soon be available as an OnDemand option which viewers will have the ability to watch nationwide.
This Sunday (November 8th), organizers Tamara Butler, Liesel Carlson, Heidi Phillips, and Donna Rich Kaplowitz are working with MSU’s Project 60/50 to host “Don’t All Lives Matter? Why #BlackLivesMatter.”
A reader asks:Did anyone ever really claim (before it was built) that the Eli Broad Museum would draw a million visitors a year? What’s the real attendance?
What we didn’t find out: I searched pretty well and I can’t find any claims dating before or after the building opened that it would draw such large numbers. Maybe someone made such a claim, and maybe he or she seriously believed it, but if so, I haven’t been able to find it.
The leaves have changed color, stores have stocked their shelves with cider and candy and Pumpkin Spice lattes have reclaimed their place in your mug. Halloween is just around the corner, and East Lansing has plenty of activities to occupy the Spidermen and Queen Elsas of your family.
Families are invited to visit Safe Halloween from 5pm- 7pm on Thursday, Oct. 29. The event will take place on M.A.C. Avenue between Elizabeth and Burcham, and the area will be closed to traffic.
