In recent years several projects conceived and organized by students have received the support and financing of the dean’s office. Students develop their own stage plays and put on theatrical performances, hold various creative and intellectual contests on Manager’s Day and their favorite celebration of the year – The Dean’s Cup.
The Miss SPA contest is also held on a regular basis. Many of the school’s students organize and take active part in volunteer programs and environmental initiatives. A case in point, SPA was the first school at MSU to establish a waste paper reception station. As a result, this initiative was supported by students, graduates and teachers of other schools at MSU, and on February 19, 2011, a special campaign to collect recyclables was carried out at six MSU buildings. More than 350 people took part and over the course of one day more than 10 tons of waste paper was collected and sent for recycling, thus saving the equivalent of more than 100 trees.
