Community Outreach

The Michigan State University Rodeo Club values community outreach. The club supports the sport of rodeo and western heritage, which leads members to reach out to the community to speak on rodeo in full western attire.

The club and its members visit many resident facilities each year. Oftentimes bringing along horses, dogs, or other farm animals as a treat to all involved. The club loves to hear the residents' stories, and enjoys speaking with the residents about rodeo and member experiences.

Each year, the club also holds a Youth Day to reach out to the next generation. At Youth Day, children learn about rodeo and each sport involved. Sometimes club members teach the children to rope along with other rodeo-related activities, hoping to inspire them to dig deeper into rodeo knowledge or even a newly-found passion.
