Spartan students stay socially engaged

While Michigan State University students are learning remotely, they continue to have access to a wealth of opportunities and connections that come with being a Spartan.

The MSU community has worked to keep students engaged and supported this semester, no matter where they are, through academic and social organizations, career and volunteering events, networking opportunities and mentorship programs.

Students also are sharing tips and resources with their fellow Spartans. Here, MSU senior Alia Jones offers some ways everyone can stay involved and connected to one another, including joining student clubs and organizations and taking part in live events.
