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.

Observations from the other side of the world

Monday, November 23, 2015

 

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.

ASK ELi: Broad Museum Attendance?

Friday, October 23, 2015

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.

Ann About Town: The Spartan Hall of Fame Cafe

Tuesday, October 20, 2015

The Spartan Hall of Fame Café is off the beaten path for many East Lansing residents, but it more than makes up for the distance by being the most intensely Spartan place outside MSU’s own borders.

Staying Safe in East Lansing: Be Aware, Trust Your Instincts

Monday, October 19, 2015

 

Julia Liggett, a freshman at MSU, hardly worries about getting home safely, even at night.

“Yeah, I feel safe. Even by myself. There’s still people out at night. There’s people everywhere, if I was by myself or something, somebody would help me.”

Would they?

Unfortunately for Liggett, science argues she might not be as safe as she believes.

The bystander effect is a psychological phenomenon that occurs when a group of people realize someone or something is in need of help, but assume another witness will give aid.
