MSU Send-Off Party

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) -School is just around the corner, that is for some soon to be freshmen at Mississippi State.

The Lowndes County Chapter of the Mississippi State University Alumni invited alumni, friends, current students and incoming students and their parents to this years a Send-off party. Students gave speeches and introduced themselves to newcomers.

“It’s just a send of party for them to kind of get them a little accumulation to MSU, give them some information they might not know and just kind of maybe mingle with some other students from Lowndes County that they might not have met yet,” said Kim Bennett, MSU Alumni Association.

The event was sponsored by the MSU Alumni Association and the Office of Admissions and Scholarships. Students attending received an official 20-13 send off t-shirt.
