Mississippi State expanded its classroom capacity with seating at “The Hump” for some of the university’s larger Fall 2020 courses, including American Government taught by Assistant Clinical Professor Whit Waide. MSU President Mark E. Keenum welcomed undergraduates in Waide's class to the coliseum, encouraging them in their academics and asking them to continue to “be brave” in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
