Interested in getting involved on campus or in your global community? Don’t know where to start?  Meet with your Student Engagement Global Ambassador (SEGA)! 

General Info

Look for the SEGA sign and blue SEGA shirt!

SEGAs are current MSU students that are involved in activities on campus, in the local community, and in the global community. SEGAs will share with you their experiences, the importance of being an involved student, and most importantly will help you develop an individual engagement portfolio that aligns with your personal and professional goals!  

SEGA's are available to meet with you every day of the week. They have assigned office hours and locations. If you would like to meet with a SEGA during their office hours, simply meet them at their specified location. If you want to schedule an appointment, that is fine too!
