In the wake of the terrible shooting last week on the campus of Michigan State University in Lansing, we are trying to come together as a community and stay strong for one another. In doing so, why don't we focus on some of the positive histories of the university? So let us take a look at some former alumni of MSU and see just how successful they have become.

Some big names in the world today are also Spartans. For example, Tom Gores graduated from Michigan State in 1986 with a bachelor's degree in construction management. He worked as a janitor and telemarketer in college. Now Gores is the owner of the Detroit Pistons, the founder of Platinum Equity, and has a net worth of $6 billion. He isn't even the richest person on this list either.

Michigan State University was founded in 1855 and was originally called the Agricultural College of the State of Michigan. The school adopted the name Michigan State University in 1964 after the state made it an official university in 1955.

Take a look at the photos below to see what these Spartans are worth today.
