Hi! My name is Joy Smith, and I'm from Amory, Mississippi! Before making Orlando my new home, I went to MSU and majored in Communication. I love that Mississippi State is full of so much history! We constantly find ways for new parts of campus to reflect our roots. The Chapel of Memories is my favorite place on campus not just because it is beautiful but also a lot of my happiest memories on campus are in this place. I've been in multiple weddings, inductions, and meetings in this place. It is the most peaceful place you can go on our campus.
