Michigan State University called off classes Monday so students could participate in a day of service in honor of Martin Luther King Day. The university encouraged students to volunteer and learn about the Dr. King's life and legacy.

This year's theme was "If not us, then who? If not now, then when?"

The celebration started last Thursday. Part of Monday's focus was on homelessness and hunger.

MSU students later held a "March for Justice" from the Union Ballroom to the Museum Monday afternoon. It was followed by a special tour about student protests and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Dinner.

The Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity and the Mosaic Multicultural Unity Center organized the march.
