Homecoming Week 2016

October 10, 2016

Happy Monday – I’m attending a recruiters fair in Kansas City, MO today with Dr. Razib Iqbal.  I am so excited to help recruit students for our outstanding CNAS programs Sunday afternoon and Monday morning!  We will be back late on Monday afternoon.


            I would like to invite you to attend one activity next week as the university celebrates Homecoming 2016.  At 4:00 PM on Friday, October 14 the Wall of Fame Ceremony will occur in the PSU Ballroom.  Larry Banks will be recognized for his many achievements at this ceremony.

The other events are listed in the calendar below or on the MSU calendar of events.
