Hundreds showed up to feast on hamburgers, chips, ice cream and of course cake.

“It’s a great way for all of the student leaders to give back to the university that has given so much to us and so it’s just a great way for us to gather, get out here and show the campus and university how much we really appreciate it,” said coordinator Vijay Kannuthurai.

The cake of course was Mississippi State colors and served hundreds. There was also entertainment by a live band.
