Become a Student Ambassador

One way you can help your School is to assist us in hosting special events. Our patrons, guests, and alumni love meeting students. You and the future success of your career are the reasons they give to MSM. Let us know if you would like to be a greeter or helper at one of our events. If you prefer to work behind-the-scenes, that’s just as helpful.

Participate in our "Thank-a-Thon” this spring

Stop by a table in the lobby and write a thank you note to one of our donors. 


MSM's Student Philanthropy Program involves current students in the advancement activities of the School by fostering interactions with alumni and donors. Students learn about donor cultivation and how to fund-raise for their own future needs. Graduating students are helped to transition into becoming active alumni. Events have included: leadership opportunities to act as special event ambassadors; specially-designed workshops on fundraising strategies for students and emerging artists; participation in an annual donor Thank-a-Thon;  early access for graduating students to the Online Alumni Community to assist in networking; graduating class giving campaigns.
