MSA & You!

  • Support system, providing information and assistance whenever and wherever necessary 
  • Collaborate and get-together for official and unofficial events every quarter
  • Group dinners, pot-lucks and trips - informally as groups of friends - but in general, we highly encourage each and all members to maximize the overseas
       experience to the fullest! This means to associate and have your own group of friends, major or personally, outside of the MSA. Get out there and live it!
