Hey, future Bulldogs! My name is Phillip Moss, and I am from Birmingham, AL. The Mississippi State campus is simply beautiful; you have to come see the state-of-the-art facilities mixed with historic buildings to understand its Southern Charm and come experience that family feeling that everyone talks about. I love Fall days at the State Fountain Bakery where I can grab a Starbucks coffee and a hot-out-of-the-oven pastry and just catch up with friends. Need to catch up on your admissions questions? Give me a ring.

Visit campus on a typical day - A football Saturday might not be an accurate reflection of your college experience. Visit on a normal weekday to see if it is a good fit.
