Safe Celebrations


Preparing for celebratory events

MSU’s top priority remains the safety and well-being of our Spartan community — on our campuses and in our surrounding off-campus neighborhoods. The responsibility of keeping the greater campus community safe belongs to all of us, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the fall semester continues, we encourage you to stay safe while enjoying your home away from home.

Helping friends stay safe

  • Most students choose to watch out for friends during celebratory events and make plans to get home safely.
  • More than 9 out of 10 students approve of cutting off a friend who has had too much to drink.
  • More than 9 out of 10 students approve of getting medical help for a friend.
  • Nearly 9 out of 10 students say they would call 911 for a friend in need.
  • Of those students who choose to drink during a celebration, most eat before or while drinking to help limit the negative effects of alcohol.
