  • Associate Director of Recruitment and Marketing


Hi! I'm Avent VanHorn, and I'm from Greenwood, MS. I'm a third generation Bulldog and a two-time MSU graduate! While earning my master's degree, I was the graduate assistant for the student organization, Music Maker Productions. The Music Makers work hard to put on some of the university's best concerts in Bettersworth Auditorium. Musicians such as Cage the Elephant, The Neighbourhood, Zac Brown Band, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, and Shontelle have all made appearances. If you enjoy live music, be sure to catch a show when you come visit campus!
