Under Mark Dantonio, Michigan State has reached heights not seen in East Lansing for 40 years.

In six seasons at MSU, the Spartans have made six straight bowls for the first time in program history, won the school's first Big Ten championship in 20 years, won the first-ever Legends division title and tied a program-record four-game winning streak against Michigan.

And MSU wants you to know that.

In a video released by the school, highlights of the six years play to the song "Radioactive," by Imagine Dragons, which repeats the phrase "Welcome to the new age."

A message plays throughout the video, reading, "You will be the ones."

This certainly is a video that will be shown to recruits, and it leaves quite the impression.

Take a look.
