Battle for the Bulldog

This year, the Student Association has created a new event titled Battle for the Bulldog. At its core, B4B is a campus-wide competition between the eight academic colleges designed to promote student involvement in their colleges. An array of competitive events will take place so that students can earn points for their respective college. A photo scavenger hunt, trivia night, banner competition, and field day are a few of the events featured in B4B. Once points are tallied, the winning college of MSU's first Battle for the Bulldog competition will be announced during the homecoming football game.

All sign-ups need to be filled by Monday, November 18 at 5pm.
