BA Convergent Media, Toledo, OH"Dance has always been something I have enjoyed and I'm very passionate about the program here at MSU. The dance minor offers numerous opportunities to get involved. Members strive to maintain academic excellence and work to keep a dance focus in the community. We do flash mobs, workshops, fundraisers, community service projects on and off campus, and teach dance classes at local elementary and high schools. I feel like the program offers students unlimited opportunities and allows you to build bonds with your professors that go outside the classroom."
