When you meet people out of state unfortunately you generally have to tell them "Lansing" because they won't understand how much cooler it is to live in East Lansing and that anyone living in Lansing or other surrounding areas should be mocked and riduculed.
most people I choose to hang out with are aware of this little college in East Lansing.. they've usually heard of it.

I lived in East Lansing for 10+ years and now I live in Holt. Either way I always said I was from Lansing, but I guess I didn't feel the need for people to know that I was associated with the prestige of East Lansing. Although, ironically many in the surrounding areas rip on East Lansing and Okemos for being the same kind of snobs that you mock for going Up North.

No, because those properties look very neglected and attract lower-income people.

That doesn't sound like anything someone from a prestigious town like EAST Lansing could be involved in. But someone like me might consider doing something like this.

Bob is now giving absolution for moves out of East Lansing.   

Just another great aspect of that personality that makes you such a great Spartan and American.
