Why an almost 100-year-old grain has excitement brewing at MSU.
Five stories from the underground.
Don’t call it a comeback. Call it a success story.
This may be the greatest LiveBIG post we have ever done.
Doffing cap and gown, thousands of Big Ten students recently made one of the biggest transitions of their lives. These newly-minted college graduates are poised to face the challenges of an ever-changing world beyond campus.
The Big Ten Conference made quite a mark on the Peace Corps last year, as evidenced by the organization’s tally of volunteers by alma mater in 2015.
As the conference champions in both football and men’s basketball, the Spartans unquestionably had a ‘B1G’ year. But that’s even more true when you look off the field or court.
The men’s and women’s NCAA basketball tournaments just began, and we’ve already seen plenty of surprises. For the Big Ten, some of those have been pleasant (Indiana) and others not so much (Michigan State).
Last fall, most people in the state of Michigan were closely following two storylines: the Spartans football team’s run for the Big Ten crown, and new Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh’s restoration of that program to glory.
One of the most fun parts of LiveBIG is the pictures we get to see — and share — with the stories we tell. When the subject matter ranges from supernovas to woolly mammoths, the imagery can get pretty interesting.

If someone asked you about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of inspirational art in Paris, your mind would probably turn to some grand, well-known example. The Mona Lisa, perhaps, or one of the many other paintings or sculptures in the Louvre. Or maybe you’d conjure up a mental image of an architectural masterpiece like the Eiffel Tower or Notre Dame Cathedral.
When we say the students, faculty and staff, and alumni of the universities of the Big Ten Conference “live big,” we aren’t overstating our case. Last year, we reported stories that took our readers from exotic locales like Sri Lanka and Uganda to galaxies far, far away. Whether it’s on-campus or in outer space, the Big Ten community is innovating, inspiring and improving.
It’s easy to take something as fundamental as clean water for granted. Whether we need it to stay hydrated, cook a meal or bathe, access to suitable water is rarely a problem for those who live in the United States.
For Tony Menyhart, coming up with a no-frills bread recipe wasn’t challenging, but finding the resources to take his product to supermarkets around the country wasn’t exactly a cakewalk.
