Send Us Your Mustangs

It’s not too late! There is still time to enroll at MSU. Application deadline for fall admission
is August 7. If you know of a student who is still looking for the right fit, tell them your story.
The campus has never looked better and excitement abounds. As an alumnus, you tell the
MSU story best. Tell them about your University, email their name and address to, and then we will do the rest. Hope to see you at an MSU event soon. 

Let’s Make it Happen

Every gift to MSU, regardless of size, is an investment in the lives of our students, the
university, and our community. Thank you to those who have already supported the MSU
Annual Fund and thank you to those who are considering making a gift to your University.
You help create the momentum that is carrying the university forward. 

We still have some work to do. Our August 31 deadline is approaching, and we still need
your support. As you know, tax-deductible gifts to MSU allow the university to continue to
provide an exceptional student-centered education. And as always, you can designate your
gift to any area of the university that you desire. Annual Fund gifts do so much for our
university.  Click Here to make a donation today. 

Your Membership Matters

It is time to renew your MSU Alumni Association membership. Your MSU Alumni Association offers you opportunities to network
with other members at annual homecoming festivities, receptions, special events, and class reunions. Your membership also helps the
university with Sunwatcher Magazine, Outstanding Alumni Awards, alumni reunions and social events throughout Texas, student
scholarships, and involvement in student activities.

Annual membership dues form the operating budget of the association for the current year. With those dues, we are able to host and
promote the activities for homecoming, graduating senior events, print and distribute alumni news and brochures, secure promotional
premiums for members (decals, pens, etc.) and awards, as well as participate and host statewide alumni events. 

Please take this opportunity to renew or join your Midwestern State University Alumni Association and help support the university that
made it all possible. Join Now.
