Historical Note

The MSU Community Club was first called the Faculty Folk Club and formed in 1923 for the purpose of assisting all faculty women in becoming better acquainted with each other. Through the understanding that this goal would best be reached if activities were organized to bring the women together, several interest groups were formed. These groups included a bridge club, a hiking club, and a dancing class. Additionally, two sponsored clubs were born from the parent Faculty Folk Club: the Bride Club and the Newcomers Club. In 2000, men were allowed to join the club. In September 2006, the name was changed to the MSU Community Club.
