September Conference a Success!
The MSUSA September Conference was held September 18-20th at Winona State University. Students approved the MnSCU Work Plan, agreed to distribute the MPIRG Gender & Sexual Violence Survey on their campuses, and approved funding for a Contact Management System.
Several alums also joined the students for the Friday night social event. Ryan Flynn, the WSU Alumni Association Board Member said, "On Friday night I had the pleasure to speak with several current students about MSUSA and the Alumni Association. It was so enjoyable to connect with these young leaders over our common experiences with MSUSA. These student leaders are funny, intelligent, and dedicated. They made the other Alumni and I feel welcomed and wanted. I'm very excited about future networking opportunities and encourage all alumni to attend social events like the one held at the Winona conference."
