Packaging Alumni Association (PAA) 1952 Project supporting the Packaging Building Renovation Campaign!

With the 70th anniversary of the MSU School of Packaging in 2022, and the launch of the Packaging Building Campaign, the Packaging Alumni Association (PAA) is proud to support the PAA 1952 Project, an initiative to continue our mission to serve the students, faculty, and alumni of the School of Packaging.

The PAA 1952 Project has a total goal of reaching $100,000 to support the overall building renovation campaign, and the PAA and School of Packaging Director, Matt Daum, have approved matching funds of $50,000  towards the total goal. Current and former board members, along with their networks, have been quietly raising funds for the last few months and are excited to formally launch the project in spring 2022.

Join us and make a gift to secure the MSU School of Packaging’s Legacy as THE leader in packaging research and education

By investing in our students, our faculty, and our spaces, we will assure that the MSU School of Packaging will raise the bar and continue to lead the field as the first (and #1) school of packaging in the country. We will continue to educate and deliver a well-prepared workforce for the industry and the educators of tomorrow.

As we connect back to the year 1952 when the school opened, we are asking our fellow Packaging Alumni to donate increments of $1952, $195.20, or even $70 in honor of the 70th Anniversary! The MSU Packaging Alumni Association invites you to be a part of the PAA 1952 Project and help make a long-lasting impact on our students, the program, and the packaging industry. 

Will you join us and be an integral part of the future of packaging at your alma matter and donate today?

Share your participation on social media with the hash tag: #PKG1952

In February 2022, the MSU Board of Trustees approved the building renovations and construction has officially started. To learn more about the full $10 million Packaging Building Campaign, please visit the project webpage.
