The Red Cedar Log is the official yearbook of Michigan State University. The award-winning publication is produced and distributed solely by a staff of 26 students—students with passions rooted in writing, editing, design, photography and business. Every year, their talents and the stories on MSU’s campus culminate in a 392-page collection of Spartan history.
