FIND A HELPFUL SPARTAN

“Helpful Spartans” are unpaid volunteers who are willing to be a resource for other Spartans who want to learn something about an occupation, industry, or business. These people are unpaid volunteers but are not official representatives of or endorsed by Michigan State, so their opinions are their own and may differ from the University’s.

Prior to contacting anyone on this list, we strongly recommend that you read these suggestions for getting the most out of the opportunity to connect with these individuals. 

Please use the keyword search bar to seek out Spartans by occupation, company name, ect.
