Getting Involved

Spread the love

If you’re looking for suggestions for awesome groups to join on campus, here’s a sneak peek at clubs that are not just fun, but worth joining. This advice isn’t just for freshmen; sophomores, juniors and even seniors can get involved, meet people, make friends, make memories and most importantly, get involved with Spartan life.

For a full list of student organizations on campus, visit studentlife.msu.edu/student-organizations-activities.

Creative Writing Club

Creative Writing Club is a great opportunity to meet fellow writers who, just like you, are interested in creating stories. Each meeting consists of group edits, sharing stories and small group workshops. Members help each other with their writing, whether they’re in the brainstorming stage, the final editing stage or anywhere in between. For more information contact Caitlin Munch at munchcai@msu.edu.

The MSU Quidditch Team

Have you wanted to play Quidditch ever since you picked up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone? Believe it or not, MSU has a club for Harry Potter fans who want to play Quidditch. Unfortunately, their brooms don’t fly, but considering MSU is a Muggle school, it’s pretty impressive that Spartans have an opportunity to get in touch with their inner wizards. For those who don’t know, Quidditch is a full-contact, coed sport played by more than 300 teams nationwide. A tryout process determines the MSU travel team at the beginning of each semester, and the travel team usually attends three or four tournaments a semester at other universities in the Midwest. Every April, they travel to the World Cup, the premier Quidditch tournament with 80 teams in attendance. So get your brooms, get in touch with your inner wizard and join the Quidditch team. Contact msuquidditch@gmail.com for more information.

MSU March of Dimes

March of Dimes’ mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality through research, community service, education and advocacy. MSU March of Dimes members gain career development opportunities, build lifelong friendships and are committed to giving every baby a healthy start. Some of their projects include making snoodles (cloth dolls) for the local NICU, making gifts for NICU staff, hosting a 5k to raise funds and awareness in the community, sponsoring a NICU Christmas family, fundraising for the March for Babies, creating NICU Graduation Baskets full of items for NICU families in need. Meetings are held every other week throughout the school year. For more information check out their website: msumarchofdimes.com or contact msumarchofdimes@gmail.com.
