Each spring the MSRJ organizes an elective for students interested in learning how to critically evaluate research. As a part of the elective we invite guest speakers to speak to us about the importance of research and have interactive sessions on how to act as peer reviewers for articles submitted to our journal. To raise awareness of the upcoming elective and promote interest in our journal, the MSRJ hosted a ping-pong tournament/pizza party in both the East Lansing and Grand Rapids Campus. The winner in Grand Rapids was Cory Messingschlager and the winner in East Lansing was former MSU tennis star Christian Roehmer. Both guys won a $25 gift card to Starbucks, an official ping-pong trophy, and most importantly bragging rights.
