Bailey Hall

Brody Neighborhood

Located on the southwest corner of Brody Neighborhood, Bailey Hall opened during the 1956-57 school year and is named after Liberty Hyde Bailey. A professor of agriculture and an MSU alumnae himself, Bailey planned the first horticulture laboratory building in the nation. Known for its edgy, eclectic vibe, 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 designed for MSU students interested in stewardship of the environment.
