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!
Since I'm from so far away, New Maroon Camp helped me realize that Mississippi State is a family that will always be there for you whenever you need help!
New Maroon Camp did more than help me transition into college, it gave me a family. For four days, I was able to serve as a counselor to a group of incredible freshmen. Each from a different walk of life, bringing something new and unique to this university. Being a part of New Maroon Camp staff is unlike anything I have ever experienced. I believe part of what makes it special is that it is able to turn a group of complete strangers into a loving, supporting family over the course of a few days, which I was able to help facilitate.
