Despite the loss, this was an outstanding year for Mark Dantonio and the Spartans, finishing 12-2 and winning a Big Ten championship. With the graduation of Connor Cook, Shilique Calhoun, Jack Allen and several other key players from this year’s team, the Spartans will have a number of important questions that need to be addressed heading into next season.

During the Michigan State episode of LiveBIG, we featured a unique project titled “Spartans’ Will 360,” that told stories of MSU alumni making an impact all over the globe.

Morten Andersen spent his lengthy career playing for teams around this great country. Now he’s working to help the families of the brave men and women who protect it.

Every November, millions of Americans express their political beliefs by taking part in the democratic process. Unfortunately, voting can be difficult for those with mobility issues. Work being done at Michigan State is trying to make the voting experience easier for everyone.

War changes people. It’s an unfortunate truth that families of deployed service men and women have to deal with. Whether it’s a submarine officer under water for six weeks or a marine overseas for 12 months, often times the soldier who left home does not resemble the one who returns, in the same way families change and adapt without that person in their day-to-day lives.
