Support the MSU Collegiate Recovery Community

In 2013 three MSU students met in an effort to create a space where students in recovery from addiction could find fellowship and support. The group named themselves the Traveler’s Club and they have since become a registered student organization. It is around these students that the university’s Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) has been built.

The CRC is a campus safe haven in which students in recovery are free to be themselves. It is our purpose to facilitate their pursuit of academic, personal, and professional goals. The CRC and its programs are designed to empower students to thrive in the fullness of the college experience, free from alcohol and other drugs.

Your Support Will Make a Big Difference

Your support will ensure that MSU students have a sober place to learn and grow. Housed in Olin Health Center, the CRC provides a dedicated lounge space where students in recovery know they can find support from staff and peers. Members of the CRC participate in weekly meetings, team building retreats, community service projects, sober social events, and life skill workshops. These services are provided within an environment that facilitates connection and support.

Project Budget

All gifts to the CRC will provide direct support services and programming for students in recovery and those affected by addiction. Funds raised in this campaign will supply food and amenities for the CRC lounge, support a stipend for our student leader, and enable continued workshops and events.

There are currently an estimated 752 students on this campus seeking help for substance use disorders. We are dedicated to ensuring their academic and personal success. Monetary support helps the CRC enhance its presence on campus. We anticipate that as our program grows and gains visibility, so too will the number of students who seek help and enter recovery.

Who We Are

The Health Promotion Department at Olin Student Health Services challenges the health attitudes, behaviors, and perceptions of our community through education, environmental management, and harm reduction efforts so that our students are free to pursue their academic and professional goals. The department offers a wide array of campus and classroom educational programs, health promotion campaigns, and individual counseling services. The CRC is spearheaded by MSU staff and students living in long-term recovery.
