More about Dee Stegall
If you transfer to Mississippi State, you will more than likely meet Dee Stegall, president of MSU’s Transfer Student Organization. A transfer student from Itawamba Community College, Dee fondly recalls his first experience at MSU.
“Everybody I met was genuinely interested in me. That’s something you can’t fake. They really cared.”
Today, Dee works to ensure that transfer students have the same positive experience he had when he was in their shoes.
“We work to make transfers feel comfortable. We help them get acclimated and give them all the resources they need.”
Dee also played a key role in launching the Transfer Theme Community. Transfer students can select this on-campus housing option, where an entire floor in one of the newest residence halls on campus is devoted exclusively to transfer students. Dee encourages transfer students to get involved and become leaders.
“At MSU, you can come from a community college and quickly jump into a leadership role. That’s hard to do in other places, but you can do it here.”
