The Michigan State University Crew Club was founded in 1956 and is comprised of a diverse group of students from varying backgrounds, and is a place where athletes feel welcome and can find their niche in a university of nearly 40,000 undergraduates.

Mission Statement:

The Michigan State University Crew Club is an organization of students dedicated to being both successful athletes at the highest level of intercollegiate rowing and successful students in the academic realm.  The Crew Club provides an opportunity for any student to represent themselves as the best of the Michigan State University community, both on the water and off.

The sport of rowing engenders a level of teamwork and camaraderie rarely found in other endeavors. The athletes of MSU Crew are dedicated to attain and maintain competitive excellence, while also promoting an atmosphere that encourages the growth and success of all involved; at the Michigan State Crew Club this culture is strengthened by the continued support of the program’s alumni.

The mission of the MSU CREW is to:

  • Promote athletic achievement and excellence in intercollegiate rowing for both individuals and the team.
  • Develop leadership, discipline and teamwork through the sport of rowing, preparing athletes for lives beyond Michigan State and the Crew Club.
  • Cultivate a community of rowers and alumni dedicated to ensuring the future success of the club.
