The Office of Alumni Affairs at MVSU has launched the 10 by 10 Young Alumni Challenge in efforts to increase young alumni involvement and support of Mississippi Valley State University. The 10 by 10 Challenge is a competition among the graduating classes of the last ten years, 2006-2015. The individuals who graduated within the last 10 years are challenged to pay a minimum of $10 per month and to challenge ten (10) classmates via social media to do the same. The challenge will run from July 15, 2016 through June 30, 2017.
