LANSING (WILX)-- Students from Cooley Law School, Davenport University, Lansing Community College, Michigan State University and other local colleges will find that downtown Lansing is rolling out the red carpet to welcome them back this fall.
The inaugural Downtown Lansing 101 - a student welcome back event - is scheduled for Friday September 6 from 4:00-8:00 p.m.
The four hour event invites students to experience all that downtown Lansing has to offer including street performers, student-only specials at downtown shops, restaurants, attractions, and nightlife hot spots, as well as contests, give-aways and other fun along Washington Sq. and the Stadium District.
With over 30 downtown Lansing businesses opening their doors to students with extended business hours, interactive activities, and student-only specials, the streets of downtown Lansing are expected to experience an increase in student traffic, as well as increase sales for business owners.
