Discover Our State
At Mississippi State University, we believe in getting personal. Our university provides the academic, leadership, and social opportunities to help each person excel. Your success—in whatever field of study or career goal—is our success. We take that mission seriously. Here, faculty, staff and students share a common goal: to make the Mississippi State University experience a lifetime opportunity.
Mississippi State University is a comprehensive, doctoral degree-granting institution with a nationally and internationally diverse student body.
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!
The community and the university are always working together to create a home away from home for our students. The delicious local restaurants and great shopping spots along with the fun festivals, sporting action, and friendly residents make Starkville: Mississippi’s College Town!
Points of Pride
Take a closer look at the evening news. Chances are those cars rolling off the assembly line, those efforts to eliminate starvation in developing countries, and even NASA’s latest space exploration are powered by ideas and research from Mississippi State.
