Summary:
"Since its founding in 1855, Michigan State University has emerged from its modest "oak opening" in the wilderness to become a large campus park. This growth reflects the commitment of campus leaders since the nineteenth century to develop MSU as a beautiful and educational public resource, as well as a demonstration model, befitting one of the first land-grant institutions in the United States."
