Mission Statement

The MSU Alumni Association embodies Michigan State University’s world-grant mission to change the world for the better and improve the quality of life for every Spartan, everywhere.

The Las Vegas Spartans’ mission is simple – Spartans for Life.

Just because we are around 1950 miles west of East Lansing, our love for our alma mater never dies.

The Las Vegas Spartans are an energetic, passionate and fun-loving group mixed of many decades and generations of MSU Spartan Alumni. We are proud to be Spartans and try to do as many things we can in the local community, as well as, the Spartan community.

With the great support of our MSU Alumni Association network, we work to nurture our local alumni involvment in community service projects, professional networking events, fundraisers, game watches, family events (inspiring our younger generation Spartans to follow our path), and social events. One of our great initiatives is also supporting our endowed scholarship for students attending Michigan State from the Las Vegas area.

And being that we are in one of the biggest tourist cities in the world, we get the pleasure of hosting many visiting Spartans in town.  Whether it be a game watch, happy hour, etc. we hope to see as many visitors that are coming through as we can.
