What is CampusGroups?
CampusGroups is the Broad MBA student engagement platform. Every activity and experience that is not related to a specific class will be created, shared, and documented in this platform. This portal will also follow you after graduation, as we will convert your accounts to alumni accounts.
What is RCR Training?
MSU requires all master's program students to complete Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training. The assigned training is the MSU Graduate School RCR Program Course and requires the first 4 modules to be completed.
What is the difference between my Broad Buddy and the other mentor programs?
There are 3 different types of mentors/buddies that you may have met with or encountered:
Admissions Mentors: After being admitted to the program, the admissions team may have connected you with a current student to answer questions about the program.
Peer Mentors: A select few 2nd year students are connected to 1st year students to help coach on subjects like career searching and best practices.
Broad Buddy: Every 1st year will have 1 (or 2) 2nd year students they will be connected with to act as a continual resource throughout your time in the program.
I have a car/bike, how can I park on campus?
If you own a bike, you must register the bike through MSU Police. If you own a car, moped, or scooter, you must purchase a parking pass to park on campus. However, there are many "pay by the hour" lots around campus that you can use. It is highly advised that you get there early to help improve your chances of getting a spot.
Commuters can buy a pass to lot 89 that costs $98 yearly. If you are a Graduate Assistant you may be eligible for alternate arrangements. You can download the MSU Parking SPOT ON app to pay for hourly parking at many locations around campus like Spartan Stadium.
