If you purchased tickets from Wharton Center to any of the canceled events, you will receive information regarding refunds or rescheduled dates within the next several days. We are working diligently to ensure this process runs as smoothly as possible.


Effective at noon on March 11, MSU suspended face-to-face instruction in classroom settings and moving to virtual instruction. This suspension of in-person classes will last until April 20. However, the campus remains open.

Michigan's Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, signed an executive order banning gatherings of more than 250 people, effective March 13, 2020, at 5pm through Sunday, April 5, 2020.

Wharton Center will adjust our plans as new information becomes available.

We are taking extra safety measures, including:

  • Extensive cleaning and increased frequency of disinfecting procedures for all high-touch areas such as sanitizing armrests, handrails, door handles, countertops, sinks, faucets, bathroom doors, and other frequently touched surfaces.
  • Ensuring all staff are educated in personal washing and cleaning protocols.
  • Monitoring the health of our staff and enforcing those who are symptomatic to stay home.
  • Asking staff to limit contact with patron’s personal items such as mobile devices and tickets.
