“Many people talk about our friendly ‘family’ atmosphere here at Mississippi State, and we know that prospective students and their families can actually feel that when they step foot on campus,” said Kylie Forrester, director of the Office of Orientation and Events. “Fall Fridays is an excellent time to show them how much we care about our students and their success.”

Attendees will tour campus with the MSU Roadrunners recruiting group and chat with current students about campus involvement, diversity, student success and more. Parents and guests will hear from staff in the offices of Financial Aid and Admissions and Scholarships, with a variety of administrators also participating in a question-and-answer session.

Check-in will begin at 12:30 p.m., and Fall Fridays conclude around 4 p.m. Registration includes a T-shirt, information packet and a voucher to use in Starkville for dinner at participating local restaurants. Due to COVID-19 guidelines, Fall Fridays have limited capacity and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Registration is $10 and available at
