Hi! I'm Avent VanHorn, and I'm from Greenwood, MS. I'm a third generation Bulldog and a two-time MSU graduate! While earning my master's degree, I was the graduate assistant for the student organization, Music Maker Productions. The Music Makers work hard to put on some of the university's best concerts at the Ampitheater. Musicians such as Cage the Elephant, The Neighbourhood, Zac Brown Band, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, and Shontelle have all made appearances here. If you enjoy live music, be sure to catch a show when you come visit campus!
What is the one experience students shouldn't miss?
New Maroon Camp! This is a way for new students to learn all about MSU's traditions while meeting other Bulldogs!
