Welcome to the Neighborhoods
Your place for Success!
Some low-income college students are failing because they don't have the right help, but one university is leading the way when it comes to fulfilling their promise for a path to prosperity.
College is a time to grow, discover yourself and the world around you, and develop long-lasting relationships. With MSU Neighborhoods, students have an opportunity to realize their full potential through a wide range of programs, activities, and support services.
The Engagement Centers are unique spaces located in each neighborhood and serve as the main access points to important resources such as tutors, neighborhood advisors, health practitioners, and other consultants that can help you navigate through your college career. Go there to:
- Get questions answered
- Find assistance with math coursework, writing papers, and other academic subjects
- Sign up for recreation and fitness programs
- Make an appointment with the health clinic
- Get advice
- Learn about upcoming events in and around your neighborhood
- Socialize with friends
Resources provided in the neighborhoods are organized into four key developmental areas: academic, health and wellness, intercultural, and residential.
Each week, the Engagement Center hosts individual and group tutoring for many first and second year courses, social and cultural activities, as well as fitness classes for Yoga, Cardio Kick Boxing, and Zumba. In addition, there are workshops on practical topics such as using the library, sharpening study skills, searching for internships, managing personal finances and more. You will even find technical assistance for troubleshooting problems with a personal computer.
The Engagement Center brings together all of the important resources and services you need to succeed during your time at MSU. We invite you to explore our website and learn more about what MSU Neighborhoods has to offer!
