How has New Maroon Camp impacted you? : 

I cannot imagine my college experience without New Maroon Camp. I made friends with people that I lived in the dorm with, people I would later have classes with, and older students that I could look up to! It was nice to start school with a family of people to eat meals with and walk with on campus that made my college experience less scary and intimidating!

Favorite Song/Artist: 

anything TSwizzle or Dave Matthews :)

Favorite Food: 


When asked about a “Dream Date”: 

Mary Adele, "That's a tough one. I'd have to say April 25. Because it's not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket!"

Favorite MSU Memory: 

My favorite memory was Dawg Daze week of my freshman year. Dawg daze is the week after move-in and before classes begin. I hung out the whole time with my new camp friends, and we all introduced each other to our roommates and other people we knew. At night we would make cookies and watch movies and explore campus together! It was so fun :)

Favorite thing about Mississippi State: 

My favorite thing about Mississippi State is how hospitable campus is. If you are ever lost or confused, any random person you ask will drop what they are doing and do their best to help you or find someone who can. I love how friendly campus feels!
