For over fifty years the Community Volunteers for International Programs (CVIP) has welcomed MSU international students and scholars and their families to the greater Lansing community. We offer a variety of educational and cross-cultural activities and programs to bring the international and American communities closer together. Our hope is to make the internationals' stay at MSU a more pleasant and rewarding experience.
American friends, have you considered inviting some MSU international students to watch the 2014 Winter Olympics with you? Many countries in the world send athletes to the Winter games. Even the Virgin Islands in the sunny Caribbean has an entry in the Alpine Skiing competition! Sharing activities like sports with our international students is a great way to learn more about the world.
