Wells Hall

Visit one of the largest academic buildings on campus, the park-adjacent Wells Hall.

Wells Hall is the largest academic building on the MSU campus. It’s divided into four wings and houses the departments of mathematics, English and all of the languages. It also has a Starbucks, another popular gathering spot for students. 

There are two departments at MSU that offer all of the majors and minors in different languages: the Department of Linguistics, Languages and Cultures and the Department of Romance and Classical Studies. Students can choose from more than 17 languages, in addition to languages offered in a tutorial or course share format. These departments also offer degrees in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) and linguistics, which is the study of human language (including sounds, words, sentences, meaning and more).

Right outside is People’s Park. Its history goes back to the spring of 1970, when people began setting up tents to explore alternative ways of living. They pooled funds to buy food that they cooked on campfires and they entertained themselves with games, music and political discussions. Today, People’s Park simply provides lots of beautiful outdoor study space for students. 

Wells Hall is also where you’ll find the Campus Center Cinema, which shows recently released movies for free to all MSU students. Plus, hundreds of prospective MSU students visit the hall in the summer for Green and White Days, our most popular open house events of the year!

People’s Park

In the spring of 1970, people began setting up tents in the space between Wells Hall, the International Center and Erickson Hall. There, they explored alternative ways of living as a community.

The grassy area of People's Park shaded by many tall, green trees with a sidewalk that cuts through it.
