Star Campus

StarCampus ProgramGuide CoverGraphic 16-172016-17 Star Campus Program

The original Star Campus program was an initiative first created by the cabinet of 2009-2010 with the intent to reward the most active campuses of the Minnesota State College Student Association. The idea was that student senates who’ve already fulfilled their commitment to the organization and realized their fullest potentials would become “Star Campuses” and serve as an example to campus governments striving to better serve their constituencies.Winning campuses would receive prizes that would give them resources to become even more effective as student advocates.

 

This guide to the 2016-2017 Star Campus program contains the criteria, a new submission process, award details, information about program status updates, and the Star Campus winner history.
