Daylight saving time is on the horizon, and MSU students, faculty and others alike will have to keep their eyes on the clock.

On Sunday, as local standard time hits 2 a.m., clocks spring to 3 a.m. instead.

The change allows both sunrise and sunset to be one hour later, which means the sun will be visible longer in the evening.

Daylight saving time will stay in effect throughout the summer months, trickling into the fall. At 2 a.m. on Nov. 4, the clocks move back an hour, rather than moving forward an hour like on Sunday.

The change comes on the last day of spring break for MSU students, as flocks of college-aged individuals swarm back to the confines of East Lansing. Classes start back up for students on Monday.
