Spartan Day of Service
Sep 21 @ 8:30 am
Spartan Day of Service

When you’re a Spartan, you’re part of something far bigger than campus’ 5,200 acres. We’re a global community more than 550,000 strong, and we’re passionate about making the world a better place. Spartans have a proud tradition of service – many MSU alumni are inspired to serve in their personal and professional lives. This extends to our alumni clubs, employers, individuals, and MSU, who are actively involved in their communities. Additionally, thousands of students give back each year through campus’ Center for Community Engaged Learning.

We are holding our MSU Day of Service which coincides with the Day of Caring on Saturday, September 21, 2019.  Each student will receive up to 5 hours of service.

 The day includes light breakfast, Lunch, Event T-shirt, and Transportation to and from the service site!
