As a result of campus closure, student access to Adobe Creative Cloud in labs and classrooms is not available. Adobe has provided temporary at-home access for impacted students and faculty, so that they can continue their work remotely.

For more information on how to download or install apps, see Download and Install Creative Cloud apps.
For Higher Education students to continue developing skills, Adobe offers free “Daily Creative Challenges”. These are guided projects where participants receive creative prompts and connect with pros, mentors, and other students for feedback and support. Click on the app name to learn more: Photoshop, XD, and Illustrator. Also, for inspiration and over-the-shoulder learning, watch pros share their creative process on Adobe Live daily at www.behance.net/adobelive.

As we work to minimize the spread of the novel coronavirus, it remains that social distancing is the best way to accomplish this. MSU continues to strongly urge all Spartans to return to their permanent residence if they are able to do so. We understand home means different things to different Spartans; if you are not able to leave or MSU is your permanent home, you continue to be welcome. We are here, open and ready to serve our Spartan community.
The MSU Graduate School has created a site with updates related to COVID-19, which includes information and resources that are specific to graduate students.

One ugly side of the Novel Coronavirus Disease outbreak is the emergence of xenophobia. On our campus, there have been reports of discrimination towards Asian and Asian American students based on their appearance, places of origin, race, and ethnicity. While COVID-19 originated in China, race is not the carrier, and there is no room for such prejudice and lack of sensitivity in our college.
