Natural Disaster Relief Efforts

Dear MSU students, faculty, staff, and local community members,

Thank you for your willingness to help those that have been affected by natural disasters. When a disaster happens, it can take months and even years for communities to rebuild. To make the most of your efforts to help, consider these tips for donating and volunteering:

Alternative Spring Break Weekend Trip 2020

Alternative Break Trips are an opportunity to serve alongside a different communities to explore and address prominent social issues affecting that community, discover your perceptions of influence surrounding the trip topic, and is a great way to build relationships across our state, the nation, and the world. This year's trip will be held the first weekend of spring break, March 7 & 8, 2020.  This year we are heading to Biloxi, MS to engage in a coastal cleanup service project to address the conservation of the local marine environment.
