Calling all Spartans in the Bay Area: we are hosting another fabulous #SpartyPicnic on Saturday, August 1 in sunny Danville. We had a fantastic 125-person turnout last year and everyone enjoyed the delicious food, family fun and Spartan camaraderie. Let’s send our Bay Area MSU students off to the Banks of the Red Cedar in style again!

If you want to catch a Detroit Tigers game this summer, they are only in town for one series during the regular season! Don’t miss your chance cheer the Tigers to victory as they face the Oakland A’s on Monday, May 25th at 1:05pm. This is a joint event with the University of Michigan Club of Greater San Francisco, so you can count on a lot of Detroit Tiger fans to cheer with!
We have an early bird special offer! Save 10% if you buy your tickets by May 3rd – just $55 each! From May 4 to May 10, tickets will be $60 so get your order in today.
Our tickets are on the visitors side in section 109. After May 10th, tickets may not be available in our group section.
Once all ticket sales have concluded, Alicia Faustyn will assign seating for the group (which is why we ask you for your alumni affiliation in the order form). She will then package the tickets, label them with your name and leave them at the WILL CALL window at O.Co Coliseum for pick-up on game day. The WILL CALL window is right near Gate C. Your tickets will be available to pick up 2 hours before the game starts. ID required!
Your ticket price includes access to our group tailgate before the game starting at 11am. We will be providing pop, water, snacks, and hot dogs from the grill! However, BYOB for this event.
We will tailgate as close to Gate C as possible, which is near Parking Lot B. Check out this parking lot map for reference. The Will Call window is conveniently located right near our tailgate as well. To find us, just look for the Tigers flag flying above our tailgate!
If you can bring anything to help make our tailgate better, such as chairs, tables, tailgate games, or a grill to help us make hot dogs – you can indicate any of these in the ticket order form, we left a place for that. Thanks for helping make it a great event out at the park!

Michigan State Alumni across the globe will join forces to give back to their communities this April. In Silicon Valley, your fellow Spartans are planning to help out Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley on their Spring Service Day on April 25. If you’re interested in joining us, please sign up here by filling out the form and selecting ‘MSU Alumni Association Spring 2015′ on the drop down menu.
Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley provides critical home repairs for low-income homeowners at no cost for eligible applicants. As graduates of our wonderful university who live and work in this area, we are incredibly lucky for our education, our supportive network, and the abundant career opportunities in the Bay Area. Let’s spend a day giving back to our community together.
If you have any questions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Edward Emling.
The Bay Area Spartans love when Detroit sports teams play the local teams, and we are already looking forward to the Tigers series in Oakland starting on Memorial Day (May 25). Stay tuned for more information on the game day tailgate, tickets and more!
