This year, our annual Spartan Day of Service on April 16 will provide wonderful opportunities for MSU students and alums to serve together in the Greater-Lansing area. By demand there will be opportunities in Flint, Michigan to help with the recent events that have prompted needed help and relief efforts identified by Flint partners. With generous sponsorship from ASMSU and other campus departments, transportation to all service sites, as well as Flint will be provided for this special day of service. You will also receive an event t-shirt and lunch.

*Please note, BOTH sites require a MANDATORY pre-service orientation meeting from 4-6pm on Friday, April 15th.
