The State News released a story on September 18 highlighting the COGS Mental Health Committee’s past and future efforts in raising awareness and advocating for mental health on campus. COGS, in partnership with MSU Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) and the Associated Students of Michigan State University (ASMSU), has planned to hold events for Mental Health Awareness Week from October 7-13, 2018.
“Events they have planned so far include an open house at CAPS headquarters with ice cream and planting irises, the official flower of mental illness, in front of Olin Health Center. Also planned for that week is trivia night at Red Cedar Spirits, therapy dogs at the MSU Library and sending cards to students in psychiatric hospitals.”

Daylong events included a coffee and information station near Wells Hall, an interactive exhibit at the Broad Art Museum, documentary screening of the film ‘The S Word’ followed by a discussion panel, and finally a dinner and reception. CAPS additionally provided free suicide prevention training sessions at Olin Health Center. Thank you to all who participated!

Michigan State University and CATA have amended their contract for the 2018-19 academic year to make on-campus bus service free to all students, staff and faculty. Free service will go into effect Aug. 27, when fall semester classes commence, and will run on a trial basis for one year.
Please note as of August 1, 2018 COGS will no longer have meal plans for sale through our website. As of August 1, you will now be able to purchase bundles of 10 directly from the EatAtState website at what used to be the DineOn175 price, as they are eliminating the tiered pricing. As a result, COGS is no longer able to purchase high volume and pass the savings on to students. Rather you will be able to purchase at that same price directly from their website.
