MSU Traditions

Bulldog pride runs deep at Mississippi State University. We are very passionate about the unique traditions that make the Bulldog family stand out from the rest. We love ringing our cowbells, tailgating in the Junction and wearing maroon on Fridays. Mississippi State University is proud of our traditions!
