ComArtSci Alumnus and Famous YouTube Star To Be MSU’s 2017 Homecoming Grand Marshal

ComArtSci alumnus Tyler Oakley is heading back to MSU to be the grand marshal for the homecoming parade. Oakley graduated from ComArtSci in 2011 with a degree in communication. He's been named one of Forbes top entertainment influencers and also secured a spot in their 2017 30 under 30.

"Ten years ago, I made my first video in my dorm room at Michigan State, and I'm honored to be returning as MSU homecoming grand marshal an entire decade later," said Oakley.

With over 8 million subscribers on YouTube, Oakley has climbed to the top of the social media world since he graduated from MSU. We couldn't be more excited to welcome him back to where he first started his channel!
