Global Week of Service

 

The Murray State Alumni Association is celebrating Homecoming 2020 by encouraging alumni all over the world to participate in a Global Week of Service. We may not be able to come together in person, but we can share our blue and gold pride by collectively serving others in our individual communities! Be sure to share your volunteer experiences with us so we can all celebrate Racer Nation doing what we do best while staying #HealthyatHomecoming.
