Aspiring Barbers

East Lansing – The City of spartans are filled with growing entrepreneurs such as Demario Bell and Andre Mosley. One being a MSU alum and the other graduating in May, these two men turned a hobby into a business for minority students who needed a barber away from home. The lack of minority barbers in the area make is difficult for different ethnicity groups to get a hair cut. “That’s one of the biggest obstacles they face as a black man coming to a predominantly white neighborhood or area, finding a barber,” Bell said.

State grant helps university fight sexual assault

A new grant from Governor Synder will help Michigan State combat sexual assault.

The 38-thousand dollar aid will go towards the MSU Bystander Network, a group that empowers people to take action if they see signs of sexual assault.

The network is working on an educational seminar for upperclassmen that they want to implement by the Fall 2017 semester. The class will build on the sexual assault workshops mandatory for incoming freshman. “It’s taking it a step further and building on that education,” says Leah Short, MSU Bystander Network project coordinator. When it comes to recognizing assault, Sergeant Andrea Munford of the Michigan State Police Department says that it’s important to trust your gut. “A lot of times, [people] may not recognize it for what it is, but they know they have a bad feeling about it,” said Munford.
