Originally founded as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of the State of Mississippi, Mississippi State University is a 4-year public university in eastern Mississippi. MSU is home to eight colleges and schools conferring undergraduate degrees. In addition, MSU fulfills its designation as a land-grant college through extensive agricultural research at the MAFES H.H. Leveck Animal Research Center and R.R. Foil Plant Science Research Center. Throughout the year, Mississippi State schedules a number of all-campus activities such as Super Bulldog Weekend and the Bulldog Bash, the largest free outdoor concert in the state.
Mississippi State University offers a very wide variety of things to get involved in educationally and for pleasure. It is a large campus feel with a close knit community. You will always find help and support if you need it; I love it here at State!

Mississippi State is obviously a football campus, but it doesn't stop there. This campus has a big heart for its students, plenty of opportunities and the chance for a better jump start on your future. The faculty is very hands on and will help with any problem you may have, never be afraid to ask for help because it is their job and they love doing it. Just a bonus, most of them are really fun too and love to make jokes to help entertain when covering some dry material. MSU is so diverse in students, academics and just about anything, they don't just cater to one type of student but to everyone.
