  • Continuing your favorite traditions
  • Receiving the most up-to-date information about what's happening on campus and in the department
  • Celebrating all things maroon and white
  • Giving back to the University community in a way that fits you — shaping the future of Missouri State
  • Sharing your story
  • Adding value to your degree by learning what's new in your academic field
  • Leaving your mark and defining your legacy

Attend alumni events

Join us at the annual Bear Battalion annual alumni event held the weekend of the football Bears Military Salute game.

Alumni events are held in cities throughout the United States and around the globe. These events are great opportunities for you to network, establish new relationships and reconnect with old friends in your area. See the upcoming events to find an alumni gathering in an area near you.

Give to military science

Alumni donors can demonstrate their desire to continue improving the quality of education in our programs at Missouri State by giving a private contribution. We are always interested in building scholarship opportunities for our students to help them thrive and succeed at MSU.

Your gift — no matter its size — will support the military science department, fund scholarships, improve our facilities and provide for creative research opportunities.

New building project

Our department has received initial approval for a new building, but we need help from our alumni to raise funding. The new development will include plenty of classroom space and a new rappelling tower. Please contribute to the department as we reach toward these goals.

Our building project also opens opportunities for alumni who might want to make a major gift to the project and join the Founder's Club.
