Located at the center of the MSU Campus, the Drill Field is a popular gathering place for students. When Mississippi A&M was founded in 1878, it was founded as a land grant institution. Early ROTC cadets would have morning and evening drill in this area of campus, which earned it the name of the Drill Field.
