Spartans Will. Power
MSU Spartans work every day in communities around the globe to make life better.
On April 13, the SPARTANS WILL. POWER Global Day of Service was our way of showing the world the extraordinary impact Spartans can make in a single day. This organized, collaborative effort brought Spartans together to serve others in their communities while demonstrating the reach and power of the Spartan network. Alumni, students, staff, and faculty joined together to serve others simultaneously, around the world.
Altogether, more than 150 MSU students spent the day engaged in direct service at locations throughout the greater Lansing area, including Impression 5 Science Center, Allen Neighborhood Center, Lansing Community Gardens, Hawk Island, Old Town Lansing, Capital Area District Library, and East Lansing Parks & Recreation. Thank you to all participants, service sites, and those involved in hosting this event!
