Bay Area Spartans! I’m pleased to announce that we’ll be back at The Brick Yard for the upcoming Football and Basketball seasons! Big thanks to Ryan Wager and Danielle Leeke for their continued sponsorship of and partnership with our alumni club! The Brick Yard has donated more than $3,500 already to our Scholarship Fund and have been a fantastic host and partner! To get the season kicked off, we’re having a party this Friday and hope you can join us! We’ll have drink specials from 7-9. Also, if you are thinking about getting involved with the club this is a great opportunity to meet our newest board member Drew Patterson who will be running our game watches along with our sports event director Alicia Faustyn this season. Our events are awesome because of our great volunteer team and fantastic partners! Go Green! Can’t wait for the first game!
Calling all present, future and lifetime Spartans in the Bay Area: we are hosting another fabulous #SpartyPicnic on Sunday, July 31 in sunny San Ramon! We had a fantastic 100+ Spartan turnout at our 2nd annual picnic last year and everyone really enjoyed the delicious food, family fun and Spartan camaraderie.

Sparty will be at our picnic this year! Come and get your family picture with everybody’s favorite mascot!
Newly admitted students that are heading back to East Lansing in August will be in attendance with their families, so let’s send our Bay Area MSU students off to the Banks of the Red Cedar in style!
This is a great family friendly event, and all future Spartans are admitted free! We’ll have plenty of grilled hot dogs and sausages for everybody, with side dishes, chips, and even a Spartan-themed cake for desert! Sodas, water, as well as some beer and wine will also be provided. Please do not bring any hard alcohol to this family friendly event.
A big thank you to Linda Lovett and her family who have generously offered to host the picnic this year! Their backyard space has plenty of room for everybody and there is a swimming pool as well. So bring your swim suits, bring your picnic blankets and chairs and make it a fun time!
Go Green! Go White!
See you at The Brick Yard, the Home of the SF Spartans, for all March Madness games!
April. That time of year when March Madness is over (#izzowned). Let’s celebrate MSU’s run with contributing to the community. MSU’s Global Day of Service allows us all to make an impact locally, away from our home state, away from our campus. It’s a time when we can show the Bay Area who we are as Spartans. This year we will be in Lafayette Park helping the City of San Francisco beautify.
Come out, enjoy the weather, enjoy the views, help us help our community!
