Sage advice

MSU News - August 27, 2014 - 12:59pm
Get a fan. That was the first piece of advice I found myself offering new freshmen as I helped them move into Campbell Hall last Sunday. There isn't any air conditioning in the hall and the forecast for the week ahead looked downright steamy. I lived on the third floor of Campbell and I remember just how warm it can get. I tried to chat with all of the students as I helped them find the check-in table or lug boxes up the stairwells. Some were more than happy to chatter away, ask advice and offer their thoughts. Others seemed too nervous to do much talking. One young lady came right out and said, "Oh, I'm so nervous. Well, not bad nervous-good nervous. This is all so crazy that I'm here. Do you have any advice?" Ask any Spartan alumnus for advice and I guarantee you'll get plenty. Get a fan. Go to class. Study hard. Make friends. Join a club. Get to know your professors. Find a tutor. Be open to new experiences. Form study groups. Get a bike. Do the Izzone campout. Go on a study abroad.

Meredith Gore: It's Been a Busy Week

MSU News - August 27, 2014 - 10:25am
Looking back on my busy week, I realized that my itinerary to some degree illustrates why I do what I do to protect the biodiversity of Madagascar. I've had the good fortune to collaborate with Malagasy civil society group Alliance Voahary Gasy on a participatory risk-mapping workshop in Manopana, Madagascar, held a press conference with 40 Malagasy journalists, given an anti-corruption workshop in the capital city of Antananarivo, and met with the president, faculty, and students at the University of Toamasina.
