Join MSU's Peace Corps recruiters Caitlin (Cameroon 2014-2015) and Cindy (Malawi 2018-2020) and Peace Corps Prep program coordinator Joy Campbell (Morocco 1998-2000) to celebrate Peace Corps Week by painting MSU's famous Rock! Peace Corps Week is observed annually during the first week of March, but we're postponing a bit because of MSU's spring break.

Painting the Rock will bring visibility to the Peace Corps program, steer people toward other Peace Corps Week activities, and serve as a fun social event and way for RPCVs and interested students to meet. 

All are welcome - help us spread the word to RPCVs, interested students, Peace Corps Prep candidates, families of currently serving Volunteers, and anyone else who would like to join the fun.

Painting supplies and hot chocolate will be provided. No Rock-painting experience necessary!
