Hello! I'm Parker Jones from Calhoun City, MS. I was a Road Runner student recruiter at MSU during undergrad, and my favorite thing about our morning meetings was breakfast at the Market Place at Perry; it's an all-you-care-to-eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner dining hall. It is right off of the Drill Field, so it's a great central place to meet your friends, and let's face it, every meeting is better with endless waffles. Schedule your campus visit today and be sure to stop by the Perry for lunch!
What is the one experience MSU students shouldn't miss?
Getting Involved - Working with other students in a student organization is so much fun, and you make fantastic friends.
What is your favorite place on campus?
Chadwick Lake - That's where I asked my wife to marry me. It has a great one-mile walking track around it where you can watch the sunset over the lake.
Why did you choose MSU?
I grew up coming to campus for sporting events and a lot of my family attended MSU, so I knew I would feel comfortable at State.
What was your favorite part of living in a residence hall?
Making friends - I got to meet so many fellow students that I would not have met if I did not live in a residence hall.
What should be on everyone's Starkville bucket list?
Eating at Little Dooey's - even the ESPN reporters rave about it.
These are a few of my favorite things….
I enjoy playing golf, attending MSU sporting events, the Fall, and Chick-fil-A.
