"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. In May 2017, he hosted the L.A.

Tyler Oakley will serve as the grand marshal for MSU’s 2017 Homecoming, Oct. 15-21. About MSU Homecoming: Tenaciousness. Passion. Openness. These are some of the qualities that bring the Spartan family together and also set it apart.
