Student Spotlights

Every day on campus is filled with amazing accomplishments by our current Spartans. With such a large and diverse student population, no two accomplishments are the same — all are unique and equally important. We are here to celebrate them all! These are just a small sample of the amazing things MSU students are accomplishing or involved with now.

If you would like to recommend a student, peer or organization to be featured in "Student Spotlights," please contact a member of the MSU Alumni Office’s student engagement team at futralum@msu.edu or call (517) 884-1000. 

Let's Celebrate You!
