Consider sharing it with your friends.

Hey class. Lots going on this semester. I hope you are learning and diving deep into the digital marketing for your brands. We are still working on grading, so no worries. Also, you don't have to share resources - only comment on the class blog for participation. 

So does anyone have any big plans for Homecoming? Anyone going to the game? Go Green!

Despite the poor weather and poor performance by the football team, my Homecoming weekend turned out to be a pretty great time. I got to catch up with recent alumni from my fraternity as well as parents of my close friends. Instead of attending the game, my friends and I all went out and watched the game instead. Hopefully this upcoming weekend is a better turnout, Go White!

Student

My homecoming weekend wasn't the best, to be honest, and the weather was not that great. However, I still went to the bar and a tailgate. It was nice to see some old friends who have graduated. It was my last homecoming as an undergrad, maybe the next time I come back after graduation will be better. 

Student

I didn't gp tp the homecoming game since I have to work. However, the homecoming line was right outside where I work, so I got a little chance to see some of the different cars in different style and decoration. Go Green!

Student

Yep, I attended Homecoming event, I standed on the car with China flag. That was amazing! I gave chilrendren candys and played with them. I hope I can attended it one more time next year.  

Student

Go White!

Unfortunately, I missed Homecoming Day because of time conflict with other class. However, Im one of CSSA member that prepared a lot for our parade like design the costume and decorate the car we stand on.

Unfortunately, i was not able to participate in homecoming this weekend, because i was absent from a test and i need to preare for the exam. But enthusiasm for homecoming is still high, with so many people on the streets wearing different jerseys. It felt like everyone could be involved. In the future, if there is such party again, i will take part in and feel it.

Go White! I spent MSU's homecoming weekend in Kalamazoo, visiting my friends. After checking the weather forecast for the weekend, I made the decision to not attend any of the homecoming 'festivities' and have a relaxing weekend. After seeing the outcome of the game, I was happy to have made that decision. I stayed inside watching Halloween movies and baking cookies, while many of my friends got soaked for hours just to watch the roughest loss of the season. I don't forsee myself attending another game this season unless the time of the game is changed! Call me a fake fan, but noon is too early for me to rally. 

Student

GO WHITE!!!!! I was in Texas this past weekend so it was pretty fun. Way too hot though. Glad to be back

I stayed with my friends this weekend and I was very happy. This is the first time I have been in the United States for four years to participate in the Homecoming Day. I attended the parade with my friends from the Student Union, I have never been involved in such a big gathering, this experience has made me unforgettable for life. This is a very meaningful weekend.

Student

I spent this homecoming weekend with my friends, it was a really good weekend. we cooked dumplings and oysters together at my friend's house. We were eating and planning on the upcoming event, we are planning to watch a live show this weekend. After that, I joined my friend's birthday party. Last but not least, I really enjoyed the homecoming weekend.

Student

Unfortunately I was not able to participate in Homecoming this year because I went out of town to visit some friends. I usually really enjoy the festive mood of homecoming, especially the homecoming parade. But at least I was able to spend some quality time with friends that came to visit the States. We spent the weekend in Detroit and visited Cedar Point. It was very nice!

Student

i waatched movie with my friends in ncg

and we studied whole night for Monday test.

 

Student

I worked all of game day, was able to finish the homework I needed to do, and shadowed at BCP.

My weekend was fantastic beside the loss to Northwestern on Saturday. I spent time with my family at the tailgate on Saturday and really enjoyed myself. Nothing like some good clean football Saturday fun. Unfortunately my brother could not make it and that made me sad. But besides that it was a wonderful weekend.

Student

Unfortunatley, I left Michigan State for the weekend to visit some of my friends in my hometown of Grand Rapids. We tailgated for the Grand Valley game (where they go to school) and hung out downtown Grand Rapids. It was a nice change of pace and super interesting to see how another schol celebrates game day!

Student

I didn't go to the Homecoming this weekend because I have tests coming up. But I am planning to watch the NBA preseason game between Pistons and Cavs which will be held in Breslin center with my friend who just graduated from MSU last semester. It really excited to watch NBA here in MSU also meet my old friend.

Student

Since this was my last homecoming as a Spartan, I was sad to see it come and go. However, I had a great time with many friends enjoying a tailgate before the game. What made the weekend even better was that my parents came up to visit my mom's college roommate. I showed them some of the bars around East Lansing and took them back to their college days. I got to watch the game at a bar with my parents so I'm pretty happy we decided against going to the game after seeing the outcome.

Student

We went to Homecoming last Friday. Since some of the roads were locked down, we rode some scooters to get there. It was a cold night, but everyone looked so nice and happy so we were in a really good mood also. Everyone was so prepared for the Homecoming and we have seen dancing and many great costumes. We even received some pine saplings from a garden club and we all thought those people at Homecoming were so friendly and lovely. It was really a good time, I'm wondering why it is the first Homecoming that I go join in since this is already my fourth year in MSU. But I'm glad I finally got involved in Homecoming before I graduate!

Student

This homecoming was a bittersweet one for me, seeing as though it is my last homecoming as an undergrad Spartan. I will be graduating this fall and while I am excited to be done with this part of my life, I am sad that I would be able to look forward to this school spirit all the time anymore. 

This past weekend, I attended a big Black MSU Alumnae tailgate, where a lot of the black community at MSU came to celebrate the Spartans. It was a lot of fun, and addition to homecoming, it was one of my best friend's birthday. Following the tailgate we had dinner and went to some bars. It was honestly a weekend of harmless young fun, that I feel like I am going to miss once graduation comees. 

My friends graduated last fall and since we haven't been out on the EL scene very much, because they now feel as though they're too old. Maybe I've been hanging around them too much, but I haven't even graduated but I sometimes feel the same way. This was a good way to have some age appropriate fun because we were surrounded by so many different alumnae from different classes and times, so noone was out of place. 

Student

This past weekend I went back home to Grand Haven, Michigan for a local bar crawl with my friends. This was a fall an annual bar crawl my friends and I have done together for 2 years now. The day after the bar crawl we went we went boating to Traverse City from Grand Haven and hit up some local breweries. We have another Halloween bar crawl to attend on the 27th in Grand Rapids. Overall, this was a solid weekend, I spent time with some of my friends that I do not get to see all the time.

I went to homecoming on Friday and I was the member of Chinese Students and Scholar Association, we gave out candy and had fun on the street, decorating the pickup truck and the trailer was tired but also excited, really a nice day in teh fall semester.

Student

I went to the homecoming with my friends on West Grand River Avenue. It's normal that took me some minutes to park my car. It was really excited to join the activity with many people. Even thought they were just srangers, but we are Spartans together! In the homecomig, there were Chinese student association like CSSA, CUSA to participate it. I felt worm when I see Chinese flag on the street under such a cold weather. And I am happy that our university has space for my country and bring us "home" feeling. Go Green! 

Student

I've been enjoying learning more about Stitch Fix's brand and marketing efforts. I was dumb and missed the social media report last week, but I'm ready to be jumping feet first in the rest of their brand (and catching up on what I missed on their social media, of course).

As for homecoming weekend, I didn't stick around East Lansing. My SO's little sister was celebrating her eighth birthday at a trampoline park in Saginaw, which was AWESOME. I don't own a car, so it was nice getting out of East Lansing for a little bit. Other than that, I worked on homework and watched the new STARZ documentary, America To Me (which I highly recommend). 

It looks like everyone else did some really cool things! I hope every had a great homecoming and enjoy the rest of their week!

Student

My parents came and set up for tailgate for the homecoming game. I started there at 6AM for a few hours and then went to work for the rest of the day and watched the game. My sister came in from California so even though it was raining it was still good to see my sister and family for the morning before going to work.

Student

I had a great time last week! My friend came here from California and I took her to visit our campus during Homconing. We went to Cedar Point, which is a roller coaster theme park. Also, we tried different food here and shared a lot of experience. We had a lot of fun on these days!

Student

I spent a wonderful, happy and fulfilling week. I went to the cedor point with my friends and took a roller coaster ride. It takes about 3 hours to drive from here to there. Then I played a lot of roller coasters at the roller coaster theme park. The most exciting is the very fast roller coaster, which can reach 190miles per hour.

Student

Despite the rain this past weekend, my Homecoming weekend was great! I did not go to the game but my roommates and I invited our parents for a tailgate at our house. We had endless food and it was fun for all of our parents to meet each other. Some of the parents ended up going to the game but my parents and I decided to stay at our house and watch the game inside.

Well, my homecoming weekend was filled with a lot of family and fun. My roommates parents, aunts and uncles decided to come up and tailgate with us, and we were welcomed to burgers, hot dogs and soda pops at 8:30am. We then went to the game, which ill just skip over talking about. His parents took us out to Green Dot Stables, and if you havent been there before I highly suggest it ($3 Moscow Mules). Also, my Fantasy Football team won this week, making the Saturday loss a little less painful, and thats about it! 

Student

I had a great homecoming week/weekend! I was actually sick during the week but my dad came up to visit and bring me a little care package which was nice since I haven't seen him since the beginning of August. Over the weekend I got to see some friends that came into town and had a fun time tailgating (despite the weather). Homecoming is definetly one of my favorite times of the year along with it finally being October.

Student

For Michigan State homecoming weekend, I actually went to Ohio State to visit my brother who's a freshman there because my family was visiting Ohio for the Indiana game! Not only my immediate family was visiting, but my extended family (grandparents, aunts, cousins) were as well so I didn't want to miss it! It was sad leaving Michigan for homecoming weekend because a lot of my friends who graduated last year flew back in for the game. However, I still got to see them on Thursday, Friday and Sunday! I also heard it was raining here for the tailgate and we also lost to NorthWestern (yikes) so I'm not too mad that I was in sunny Ohio where they beat Indiana 26-49.

Student

I really want to go back home but I can’t, since I’m international student and my hometown is 20 hours’ flight away from here. However, I still enjoy the life here. This semester I take the Japanese class and join in the activity of Japanese club as well. I mede friendship with 2 cute Japanese girls during the BBQ party of Japanese club, and knew something about their culture. Also, Oct. 15 is my birthday, I already prepare to make a huge birthday cake for myself and invite my friend to participate in my birthday party. We will make dinner togethen and have a fun time. Moreover, I’m looking forward to the next lessons of this class, as it tells me something new and attracts me a lot.

Student

Sadly, I can’t go back home since I’m an international student. But there’s still a lot of interesting event on campus. I stayed with my friends on mid-autumn festoval, a traditional festival in China that family members stay together, and ate moon cakes. Even though we couldn’t had this festival with family, that was still a good night. On the other viewpoint, we are all in the Spartan family as well. Also, I went to a club to listen a brand live. It’s is an amazing experience and make me want to sing on the stage as well. Maybe Ill try it next time. Life needs more surprise!

Student

My friends' mother comes to see her on the homecoming day. That day is my friend's birthday we spend together to celebrate it and then hang out.  We didn't go to the game since we do not have tickets. But we held a party to replace watching the game. 

Student

Sadly, I missed the homecoming festivities this past weekend! I had every intention to go as a large group of my alumni friends came to town. My boyfriend's kindergarten best friend got married this weekend and we were too drained to make it up to East Lansing on Saturday. The man who got married just graduated from West Point and had a traditional military caltholic wedding, it was truly beautiful. I hope everyone had a good time at the game and tailgating, sad I missed it! 

Student

I went to the homecoming parade on Friday to cheer on my friend on the dance team. I also went to the game with her and her family. Everytime I have been to a Michigan State football game, I always sit in the student section. This time, her family has season tickets and had an extra one and invited me to sit with them. It was a different experience. In the student section you can chant with everyone but stand the whole time. In actual season seats, I was able to sit down for the game.

Student
Funnily enough, I felt confident that I knew enough about YouTube and its inner workings before starting these lessons and thought they would be a breeze. Boy, was I wrong! Most of these lessons have been super interesting to me. As far as homecoming goes, boy was I out of the loop. I was wondering what all the crowding and tents were for while driving around campus and only after doing some research did I realize it was homecoming week. I sure need to improve my MSU spirit, but I know I'll nail it before long!
Student

I went to the homecoming parade on Friday evening. I have lived in the area my entire life, plus it is my third year on campus, and it was my first homecoming parade! Overall, it was lots of fun. It was thrilling to spend time with my friends and also see friends in the parade representing their respective organizations. I also went to the game and sat in the student section. It was tough to see MSU play so poorly, but as always, GO GREEN! 

Student

Homecoming was a very fun weekend! Friday, the organization I am a part of was able to participate in the parade which was very fun to witness. On Saturday I got together with friends to tailgate and ate lots of very yummy food. After we had planned to watch the game but we got wrapped in the mist of tailgating. I hope everyone had a great, fun homecoming!! Go Green!!

Student

Had a few friends who graduated last spring come visit for the game! Tailgated for a bit and did our best to stay out of the rain!

Student

I had the opportunity to set up the Michigan Apple Committee's tailgate this weekend. I hand delivered eight boxes of Michigan Gala Apples to Munn Intramural Field. Once I finished setting up, I headed to the tennis courts across from Holden Hall and enjoyed the rest of the tailgate with my friends. I ended the rainy, turned sunny, day at the Asian Buffet in Okemos.

Student

I don't know if this is where I comment for the 10/10 deadline, but I hope it is. Anywho, due to me living over an hour away and not having the income, I didn't have a chance to celebrate homecoming. I love sports and support, but I just didn't have the money or time. Over the weekend I assisted my mother since she's battling cancer. I am happy, however, that everyone had such a wonderful time celebrating! I can feel the energy, and it helps me feel better. Go Green!

Student

This Homecoming weekend was absolutely crazy and busy, but so much fun! For my internship with the athletic department, I worked the game as well as 2 volleyball games this weekend. Its awesome being a part of the game day experience, but not as great waking up at 6 am! I got to watch a little bit of the game and I am so disapointed in how we played. We gotta come back stronger next week and prepare for the Michigan game!

Go green!

Student

I had an eventful Homecoming weekend! I commute to campus once a week, but I love to make the drive for gamedays. I met up with a couple of old friends and tailgated at their house then headed to Peanut Barrel for dinner. I am upset that we lost but being in East Lansing with some of my best friends is something that never disappoints!

Student

This is the best weekend i have ever have, ever. I went to the homecoming and just get an front seat football ticket of UM,the MSU home game. I went to watch the sun rist in lake lansing, it is a rainy day but we still saw the sun rise. With my friends walk in the rain. I was so happy, so so happy. Meet a lot of friends this weekend also. FIve of my frends grt their birthday party this weekend. I am like a drunk girl, happy with no reason. 

 

Student

A bunch of my friends who had graduated came back for the weekend, so we had a tailgate and spent time together. I went to the game since the rain subsided, but left after Northwestern put the final nail in the coffin with about 4 minutes left. Time to play spoiler to UM and OSU.

Student

For homecoming, my parents and my sister all came up for the game. We all went to the game together. Despite the outcome, it still was great to see everybody. Sunday was the first game of the year for the hockey team –we won by the way!– so i am starting to get busy with that. 

Other than that, been relaxing and studying for exams this week.  

Student

Watched the dissapointing homecoming loss at Rama at The Riv on Saturday. We had to go back on Saturday night to Ricks to distract us from the brutal loss. Today has just been all homework and NFL. Hopefully Danantonio can get the Spartans back on top starting next week!

Student

I had a hayride for my business fraternity on Friday and unfortunetly didn't make it out in time for the game on Saturday.  My roommates brother visited and we went out that night to distract us from the brutal loss MSU took on Saturday afternoon.  Other than that,  Iworked on homework and even submitted internship applications for the upcoming week.  

Student

I have pneumonia, so did not have any homecoming plans. I just studied and got some homework done! 

 

GO GREEN!
