Governor Rick Snyder will deliver the commencement address at Michigan State University’s December graduation this morning.    

Some 23 hundred undergraduates and graduate students will receive their degrees during the mid-morning ceremony at the Breslin Center.

Thousands of family members and friends are expected to attend.   And maybe a few protesters as well.

Several groups unhappy with Governor Snyder’s quick signing this week of Right to Work legislation have talked about showing up at the M-S-U commencement which is open to the public.

MSU spokespeople say there will be security at the commencement similar to the level of a Spartan basketball game.
