The Mississippi State University New Maroon Camp is a week-long student-led retreat that prepares first year students for the transition to Mississippi State University. Students will learn MSU history and traditions, meet other new students, discover opportunities to get involved, and learn about the MSU campus.
New Maroon Camp means so much to so many people here at Mississippi State. Hear what former staff and campers have to say about their NMC experience!
Everything I am involved in and have succeeded in I can trace back to a connection, experience, or piece of knowledge that I gained from New Maroon Camp. I learned so much about myself and my abilities to make a difference on campus and became so much more comfortable in my new environment -- as well as made many friendships that I still hold dear to this day.
2017 Programming Staff
New Maroon Camp holds a special place in my heart. When I attended my freshman orientation at Mississippi State, I heard about this opportunity called New Maroon Camp. I really wanted to attend and asked my parents to help me out, but they said if I wanted to go, I had to pay for myself. It just so happened that I was working at Build-a-Bear Workshop, so I saved up my money and took a week off of work to attend camp.
The all-volunteer New Maroon Camp Staff is comprised of a Student Executive Staff, Student Counselor group, and a Student Programming Staff.
