How has New Maroon Camp impacted you? : 

New Maroon Camp is 100% the reason for my happiness and early success at Mississippi State. Without New Maroon Camp, I would not have met the people I am friends with nor would I have been so ambitious with joining the clubs I am a part of. New Maroon Camp helped me to network myself while also establishing life long friendships.

Favorite Song/Artist: 

"All My Friends" by Snakehips, Tinashe, and Chance the Rapper

Favorite Food: 


When asked about a “Dream Date”: 

Austin said, "It would start with walking all over downtown Chicago. From there, we would go to dinner at the Dawson -- a restaurant in the city. It would end with seeing the lights at night and ice skating at Millennium Park."

Favorite MSU Memory: 

One moment that has always stuck with me was visiting the Chapel of Memories for the first time. This was on my campus tour in March of 2016 and I got to be alone within the chapel and learn about its rich history.

Favorite thing about Mississippi State: 

I love the atmosphere of this school. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming and it warms my heart. Hail State baby!
