General Info:


Please be advised that these events are being held during MSU Homecoming and we anticipate a high demand for hotel accommodations in the East Lansing/Lansing/Okemos area. We recommend making your reservations ASAP with an understanding of the hotel’s cancellation policy.

While we do not have a block of rooms to offer you, here is a list of area hotels to make booking your room easier. Additionally, here is a list of B&Bs in the area.


Wondering what to wear? These events are meant to be casual and celebratory. Your comfort should be the most important consideration.

The party Friday evening will be outside in a tent with heaters and also indoors. Please dress accordingly for a Michigan fall. Think layers! Know that we will spend time walking around on grass, so you may want to avoid wearing heels that will sink in when walking.
