STARKVILLE, Miss. – (WCBI) Recent Mississippi State graduates are breathing new life into forgotten traditions.
2012 Senior Class President Rhett Hobart says that his group is bring back the class gift program. Their gift is to rebuild a historical place, known as the Bull Ring.
Originally built in 1933, the original Bull Ring was located on the north side of campus. The 2012 class, however, has chosen a new location on the lawn of the Colvard Student Union.
They are keeping with tradition, with a circular seating area with a shade tree in the middle. The original spot was designed to be a place where students could sit around and “shoot the bull.”
The class of 2012 hopes new and returning students will use the Bull Ring for the same reason.
