Maroon Edition: Global Village Experience

Maroon Edition 2013 Heifer Global Village Experience
September 27-29, 201

Join us for a weekend-long adventure at the Global Village within the Heifer Project Ranch in Perry County, Arkansas!  The Heifer Project is an international aid organization, providing agricultural and educational resources to impoverished communities around the world.  In connection with the Maroon Edition and Richard Muller’s Physics for Future Presidents, we will learn about Heifer’s global operations, meet the animals, visit the organic farm, and have a unique opportunity to experience global poverty—a significant challenge for any future president.  We will be staying in developing world conditions, working together, and improving our understanding of global poverty.  This trip is an excellent opportunity for students who want to improve their leadership skills, build their community service portfolio, or just spend a fun weekend on a beautiful farm.   
This trip is FREE TO MSU STUDENTS, but space is limited, so sign up soon!  Please complete and submit the [registration form], [liability waiver], and check out the [information sheet].  We will be staying in a rustic setting, so bring your sense of adventure and come ready to get in close contact with nature!  We will have a group orientation meeting on September 9, and then travel to Heifer on Friday, September 27, returning to campus on the evening of Sunday, September 29.     
Please contact Dr. Joseph Witt (Philosophy and Religion, or Dr. Carolyn Huntington (Animal and Dairy Science, if you have any questions.
