Welcome to the legacy website of Michigan State University’s alumni club for The Villages,Florida area. Founded in 2007 and chartered in February of 2008, THE VILLAGES AREA MSU ALUMNI CLUB, today numbers over 250 members and is still growing. The club is for alumni and fans. While dedicated to promoting and supporting the mission of Michigan State University, the Club actively provides many opportunities for fellow Spartan fans to enjoy social, athletic, cultural and charitable events together.

Our Activities Calendar provides for monthly social activities, football and basketball game watches, tailgate parties, social and dance nights on The Villages’ Squares, group attendance at area entertainment events, golf outings and support of worthy local organizations. 

We are extremely proud of the establishment of our MSUAA recognized Educational Grants Fund. Scholarship money is raised through Club activities. The Club awarded Scholarships the past 9 years to local tri county middle school teachers.

Please explore this web site, and we hope you will join with your fellow Spartans and become an active member of THE VILLAGES AREA MSU ALUMNI CLUB

Dinner Group

Our dinner groups begin again soon. Phase I will run September into January and Phase II will pick up mid to late January (sign up will be at our Annual Meeting) and run to May.  If you are a snowbird, we definitely want you to participate, but gently ask that you wait for the second round. When you aren't back until November, you've already missed the first two dinners which can pose some problems for your group. Sign up for the first phase by August 31st; either call me at 352-272-0654 or email me at tcbarb10@aol.com. I will send out the groupings the first week of September so you can get started.  Be sure to say whether you want to dine out or be in a home group, and also state if you have preferences for the size group you're in (either of 6 or 8). Spread the word to any new area Spartans you know.
