Get Support

It is a natural response to want to keep a setback in life to yourself, however, the best way to work through difficult experiences is to combine self-reflection with being in a community with others. In the video testimonies below, members of MSU faculty, staff and community share a time they faced a setback. Our list of campus resources may also help you along.

If you have feelings of rejection, failure, setback or are struggling with how you may be successful, please contact the Dean of Students office,
