LA Spartans WILL – Dana Precious

LA Spartan Dana Precious, has had a very successful career in movie marketing but her talents are also on the page.  She’s the author of the hilarious “Born Under A Lucky Moon” novel, which is based in Michigan and she’s just released her second book, “MURDER IN MALIBU”.

Merry MacIntosh was a normal small-town girl working as a waitress at the North Muskegon Steak ‘N Egger until life picked her up and dropped her on her head.

The comedic murder mystery is the debut book of the ‘Miss Merry Mac Murder Mystery’ comedic series so there’s more to come!

LA Spartans WILL – X prize Global Literacy Campaign


global learning xprize

LA Spartan board member Geoff Koboldt has been volunteering with other X Prize Vanguards alongside Peter Diamandis and his incredible team at the X Prize to help raise global literacy.


The Global Learning XPRIZE challenges teams from around the world to develop open source and scalable software that will enable children in developing countries to teach themselves basic reading, writing and arithmetic, empowering them to take control of their own learning and ultimately their future. Our goal is an empowered generation that will positively impact their communities, countries and the world.

A crowdfunding campaign at has helped raise an additional $900k.


Spartans in Hollywood – Magic Castle – November 11th, 2014

Hollywood loves a sequel! And Spartans In Hollywood are no different!  Once again Spartans In Hollywood (with the help of the Alumni Association) is throwing a magical networking event on November 11th!  In case you didn’t get the email from MSUAA, we wanted to make sure all our members got the invitation to join us for another evening of networking and magic with Michigan State Alumni in the Entertainment Industry.

Mix and Mingle:  7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Chat with Spartan alumni in the industry and meet Scott Westerman, executive director of the MSU Alumni Association.

Explore the Castle:  9:00 – 11:00 p.m.

Enjoy the mystery, magic and illusion of the Castle’s three different theaters.  Last year’s event was a smashing success and we look forward to this year’s being just as amazing.

MSUAA was kind enough to foot the entire bill last year. But we couldn’t ask them to do that again this year, so we are asking people to pay $20 per person to help cover a portion of the costs.  An enchanting price that will amazingly  transfigurate into a priceless evening of fun!
