LIFE Scholars are matched with MSU Peer Partners who facilitate campus engagement in social activities and events. 

Peer Partners spend a minimum of two hours/week with LIFE Scholars where they may meet for coffee, make plans to attend campus events or workout together at the gym.  The LIFE Scholars Program hosts monthly events for Peer Partners and scholars that may include a pizza party, trip to a ropes course, bowling night, etc.  Training is provided to all Peer Partners to ensure a successful and fun experience for all.

Circle Of Support


LIFE Scholars are invited to create a Circle of Support, which involves bringing together people they value and trust who can support them in achieving their goals or brainstorming solutions as problems arise. LIFE Scholars may invite family members, peer partners, friends or teachers to be part of their circle.  Scholars are responsible for inviting participants to the meetings, setting the agenda and providing snacks. How often a circle meets is determined by the needs of the scholar. Participation in a Circle of Support provides repeated opportunities for scholars to advocate for themselves, re-examine their goals and establish a network of support which may be accessed after graduation.make plans to attend campus events or workout together at the gym.  The LIFE Scholars Program hosts monthly events for Peer Partners and scholars that may include a pizza party, trip to a ropes course, bowling night, etc.  Training is provided to all Peer Partners to ensure a successful and fun experience for all.
