Students, MSUSA Alums, MSUSA Staff, community members, campus faculty, staff, and administration will all be in attendance!

2nd Annual Alumni Association November Meeting
Join us on Saturday, November 14th, 2009 at the Country Inn & Suites in Woodbury for the 2nd Annual MSUSA Alumni Association meeting. All alums of MSUSA are invited to participate. At the meeting you'll hear the Boards proposal for the future, learn more about where MSUSA is currently, find new ways to become involved, participate in elections, and have some fun!

Alumni Association Board Vacancy: MSU Moorhead
The Alumni Association is seeking a graduate of MSU Moorhead to serve on the Alumni Association Board. Please contact us if you are interested, or know of someone who would be a good fit.

22nd Annual Penny Program Reception & Silent Auction
Save the date! The 22nd Annual Penny Program Reception and Silent Auction will be held on Friday, November 13th, 2009, 6:00 p.m. at the Minnesota Zoo in Apple Valley.

We're currently seeking volunteers who would like to help us plan this fun event to benefit students participating in unpaid public service internships and who have a lifelong commitment to community service. We'd love to have you involved in any stage of the planning process. Please contact Kari Winter at KWinter@msusa.org if you're interested.

Another way you can help is by donating a unique item or service for the silent auction. Are you an amazing cook? Would you give a great golf lesson? Do you create your own jewelery? All of these things would be great at our silent auction!

Back to School

Students began classes again this week! Please contact student leaders from your campus to offer your assistance and advice. When our alums become involved, our student advocacy efforts will become even stronger and Minnesota's public higher education will rise to the top!
