Every student at Michigan State should make it a priority to join a Student Organization. There are over 550 registered student organizations on campus. There are organizations in a wide variety of interest areas, including academic, business, charitable, environmental, international, political, religious, and sports and leisure. A full list of organizations and contact information can be found on the Student Life website.
The student organization I am involved with is Spartans Fighting Cancer, a chapter of the American Cancer Society’s Colleges Against Cancer Program. Through the program’s four strategic directions of Advocacy, Cancer Education, Survivorship, and Relay For Life, Spartans Fighting Cancer works to further the mission and goals of the American Cancer Society.
I encourage you to take a look at the Student Life website and browse through the pages and pages of registered Student Organizations. I’m positive that you are bound to find one that interests you. However, If you don’t find an organization that fits around your interest, you can create one! There are instructions on the website and the Student Life office is more than willing to help you with the procedure for starting one.
Joining a student organization is one of the numerous opportunities for you to enhance your undergraduate experience at Michigan State University even more!Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

I can’t believe that summer is almost over. It feels like yesterday that I was sitting in class taking my final exams. However, even though summer felt like it flew by, it was definitely a busy one. I was able to spend a lot of time outside swimming, running, and getting work done by the pool. I also managed to help produce a four-day national conference for the American Cancer Society in July. Overall, it was an amazing summer and I’m looking to seeing what the fall brings.Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Looking out the window inside the APUE office, campus sure looks beautiful! One thing I really love about this campus is that it can amazingly well in every season during the year. That’s not to say I enjoy seeing a foot of snow hit campus in the middle of January, but it is nice to see every once in a while.

It’s finally Friday! Even though this week was a short week due to the 4th of July, it still felt long. I am totally looking forward to relaxing and catching up on work around the house.
The weather looks like it’ll be warm and sunny. I can’t wait to be outside and get some fresh air!Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
