Hometown: Eupora, MS
Major: Business Technology Education
Khalil grew up coming to Mississippi State for games and couldn't wait to be a student.
"It was even better than I imagined."
The intimidating lecture halls he saw in the movies were nothing like his small classes with professors he could actually talk to. Like many students, Khalil discovered a passion for something other than his original major.
"When I changed my major, the College of Education welcomed me with open arms.”
So much so, he now serves as a College of Education ambassador, encouraging otherstudents to follow in his footsteps.
“Now that I know what it feels like to find the right major, I can help otherstudents do the same.”
His favorite part?
“When I see their faces light up."
