This event is open to MSUCOM affiliates, pre-college and admitted students.

Help Sparty find his helmet! There is a Spartan helmet icon hidden somewhere on the MSUCOM website. If you find it, click on it to figure out why Sparty keeps losing his helmet, and engage with a conversation on what it means to have a disability, especially when it's not always immediately visible. On Thursday, there will be a guided and honest conversation about disabilities with information and resources for students to foster deeper understanding and empathy.
