The goal of student radio is to create a vibrant community of students who inspire and encourage through diverse and professional programming. This creates an experience-based learning laboratory where all students develop applied skills that future employers will recognize and value. Both stations are supported by a fee collected from all students each semester. Students of all majors may apply for paid positions or to work as volunteers. Offices and studios in G-4 Holden Hall are accessible. For information call (517) 884-8900. Website: http://impact89fm.org.
