What is New Maroon Camp?

The Mississippi State University New Maroon Camp is a five-day, four-night student led retreat that prepares first year students for the transition to Mississippi State University. At New Maroon Camp, students learn what it really means to be a Mississippi State Bulldog. This includes giving students the opportunity to experience and learn about MSU history & traditions (the cowbell, the Chapel of Memories, etc.), meet other incoming students, and gain insight into freshman year -- all while moving in to their residence hall 5 days early!

At Mississippi State University, we pride ourselves on being a family.  At New Maroon Camp, we carry on this legacy by placing campers into one of five family groups.  In these family groups, students will participate in team competitions and group discussions, allowing them to develop deeper relationships with their counselors and peers before classes even begin.

This year, New Maroon Camp will be August 8th-12th.  We hope that you will take advantage of this great opportunity to start YOUR LEGACY here at Mississippi State!

Hail State!
