Bailey Hall

Bailey Hall is located in the southwest corner of the Brody Neighborhood. It was recently renovated and features new study rooms, game rooms, offices and meeting spaces on each of the four floors. The third floor is home to the community laundry room and kitchen. Bailey Hall opened during the 1956-57 school year and is named after Liberty Hyde Bailey (class of 1882). A professor of horticulture, Bailey planned the first horticulture laboratory building in the nation. Bailey Hall is home to the Residential Initiative for the Study of the Environment (RISE) living-learning community and the Bailey GREENhouse. The RISE program is for MSU students interested in stewardship of the environment. RISE provides students a community and curriculum focused on the environment as students get their feet wet and hands dirty applying their knowledge to real problems and projects. Incoming freshmen can live in Bailey Hall on designated floors with other RISE students, which promoted strong relationships among them.
