Creating Change at MSU

Identifying problems and coming up with solutions to those problems is the easy side of shared governance at MSU. Being committed to and taking proactive action is a much more challenging side.
Student government, namely the Minnesota State Student Association (MSSA), can make things happen at MSU, but not without a legitimate voice from its student constituency. Tuition, fees, residence hall rates, textbook prices, and parking permit costs all saw increases in the most recent academic year. Students, including student government, were given ample opportunity to voice their concerns, so we as students must all look to one another for answers.
It is imperative that students take the time to voice concerns through the channels available: MSSA meetings, joining a committee, emailing your senate representative, viewing the MSSA website at and even simple tasks such as filling out a surveys. If we're not being proactive with our concerns, we'll all be looking in the rear view to a campus unaffected by its primary investors.
