Jack Breslin Student Events Center

Jack Breslin Student Events Center History

Jack Breslin Student Events Center has been home to the Michigan State Spartans college basketball team since first opening in 1998. Michigan State has been one of the most successful college basketball programs in the past few decades under the guidance of head coach Tom Izzo who seemingly annually guides the Spartans to the Sweet Sixteen and beyond and is always able to recruit many of the best college basketball players in the country, several of whom go on to long and successful careers as NBA stars. Michigan State has benefited from wild success at home, largely due to the atmosphere created by its die-hard student section as well as its dedicated local fans who eagerly buy up season tickets for the Spartans the second they go on sale.

East Lansing, Michigan

East Lansing is located just east of the Michigan capital of Lansing and is home to Michigan State University. One of the most visited and recognizable landmarks on the MSU campus is a giant boulder known as The Rock which was placed on campus by the class of 1873 and is five feet high. The Rock serves as a staging area for student groups and is regularly graffitied by the groups to promote their ideals. If you are looking to take in some performing arts in East Lansing you would be well served to head out to Hannah Community Center which is home to the Albert A. White Performing Arts Theater. There is plenty of great dining in the area including El Azteco which is one of the oldest restaurants in the area and well known for some of the best food in East Lansing.
