Whether you're heading to East Lansing this weekend to attend graduation at Michigan State University or a resident making plans to avoid all the headaches, here are some tips from the Lansing State Journal.

With students continuing to move out and thousands of their family members set to arrive this weekend, its best to avoid campus unless you want to wait for long lines of cars and massive groups crossing roads.

Have a plan and prepare to walk.  Parking will be available at several lots on campus, including near the intersection of Trowbridge and Red Cedar roads as well as south of campus at the northwest corner of Mt. Hope and Farm Lane.

You may want to take graduation photos another day.  Everyone wants a photo in their cap and gown next to the Spartan statue or in the shadow of Spartan Stadium.  Come back next weekend, when there won't be lines hundreds of people long.
