Sept. 25, 2012 —
The event will enlighten the campus community about the student organization which consists of successful MSU students who have various types of disabilities. Beginning this fall, SEED students will host events on campus, mentoring middle school and high school students who share the same type of disability (college student with a learning disability would be matched with a younger student with a learning disability, two students who are blind, etc.).
The group’s goal is to give advice and encouragement, while serving as role models to someone younger who might otherwise count him/herself out of going to college.
Kevin Koett, assistant vice president of student life and dean of students, along with faculty from various departments, will pair with students to choose their own style of dance and music. Nine teams will be participating.
On Monday, Sept. 24, and Tuesday, Sept. 25, SEED will sell advance tickets from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the second floor of the Adron Doran University Center.
Faculty and staff, who cannot attend, are encouraged to purchase tickets and give them to students.
Tickets can be purchased the night of the event for $5.
