When lunchtime comes around a good meal or a fun activity can make that break worthwhile. At MSU there are tons of activities to engage in when you have some free time. Here are a few lunch break ideas that can be used throughout the work week.
1. Attend a Recipe for Health Class at the Brody Demonstration Kitchen
Recipe for Health offers information and recipes to help you prepare healthy meals every day. A seasonal food item is featured each month (e.g., cucumbers, peaches, lamb, etc). Health4U also offers other classes at different times and days throughout the week, including Kitchen Skill Drill, Culinary Cooking and Concepts, Raising Good Eaters and more.
2. Take a walk on campus
MSU has many walking trails available for MSU faculty, staff and students. To locate a trail you’d like to explore, check out the interactive Campus Walking Loops Map developed by GIS in partnership with MSU’s Health4U program. During inclement weather, indoor walking routes are also available at IM East (Intramural Sports Facility) and Jenison Field House.
3. Visit the MSU Museum or the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum
Both the MSU Museum and the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum are wonderful places to discover. The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum features more than 75 pieces of international and contemporary artwork and also has a café. The MSU Museum has 15 galleries with dozens of artifacts.
4. Check out a book from the MSU Library and enjoy a great read
MSU faculty, staff and students are allowed to check out books from the MSU Main Library. Take a visit to the library and pick up a new book to read and enjoy it for a day or several. Need help finding a book? Many of the knowledgeable and friendly librarians are available for assistance.
This list is just the beginning. Check out other activities around campus and enjoy your lunch break!
