This year's event, themed: There’s a Superstar Within You, will be held on April 23, 2020 from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. at locations across campus.

Each year units, departments and colleges across MSU’s campus participate in the Take Your Child to Work Day event, which is in connection with the National Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day. This is an incredible day to experience the wide variety of opportunities available at MSU and beyond.

You are invited to bring your children, your grandchildren, your best friend’s kid, the neighbor kid, or another child in your life to explore different programs and activities that are put on by units, departments and colleges across campus. Most activities are geared for kids ages 8-16. Younger ages are welcome. You’ll want to plan your day to visit the places they will enjoy. The list of activities from last year is below. The list for this year is still being compiled, but please don’t let that stop you from saving the date for this year’s event.
