Rainer discussed the change in communication with his parents from first year to second year. It is his own opinion of his relationship with his parents and is not necessarily the typical representation of our student population. It is through this Spotlight that we aim to shed light on the differences that many of our students have in family contact.
As many of us remember, in January 2010, Haiti was hit by a massive earthquake. A group of Missouri State students came together to think about how Missouri State could help the citizens of Haiti. They formed a group called, "Bears Backing Haiti." Students all across campus came together to donate money to this cause. The goal was to raise $50,000 in 50 hours. We fell short only $7,000 and this January, we raised money again to meet the $50,000 goal.
