It’s hazy when Michigan State adopted the Green and White as their school colors—was it in 1903 when Chester L. Brewer came on board to direct athletics for the school (then named State Agricultural College)?
One thing’s for sure, the school colors were deeply rooted by the mid 1910s when student F. Irving Lankey, a yellmaster—yes, the idea of a “cheerleader” didn’t yet exist—and his roommate, Arthur L. Sayles, composed the Michigan State Fight Song. While it has been updated through the years, the original song not only holds up, it’s regularly heralded as one of the best college fight songs of all time. Fight for the only colors: Green and White!
