Welcome Back Spartans! September 1, 2021 Welcome Back Spartans!

Dear BLD Students,

Welcome back to campus. The halls of North Kedzie have been quiet for too long. We welcome back your smiling faces and scientific enthusiasm. These past 19 months have been trying for all of us and while we are not through this pandemic, scientific resilience shown by laboratory and medical professionals, combined with your determination for safety are allowing for a return to campus.

The need for trained medical laboratory scientists is great. You are answering a call, but training must take place in the laboratory, in-person. Making sure the fall semester is healthy and safe will take the entire MSU community working together. We must remain resilient.

Picture a hospital or clinical laboratory. What do you see? Perhaps lab coats and gloves, test tubes and beakers, petri dishes and instruments. A clean, white, sterile world of medical equipment occupied by busy, dedicated professionals. But if you look closer you will find a world filled with vibrant colors and artistic ambitions.
