MSU Alumni Atlanta Chapter


Student Recruiting

Two Mississippi State Univeristy (MSU) graduates are full-time staff members of the University’s Admissions and Scholarships Office and reside in the metro Atlanta.  They are responsible for recruiting the state of Georgia.

The MSU Atlanta Alumni Association helps support their efforts by hosting ad hoc recruiting events, the annual Send-Off Party for prospective and incoming students, and by sending representatives from the Chapter to attend college fairs.

MSU has seen enrollment from the state of Georgia quadruple over the last five years. Georgia is third behind Alabama and Tennessee for enrolling students at MSU that are non-residents of the state of Mississippi.

MSU has a diverse student body comprising 20,424 students from every state, all 82 counties in Mississippi, and 75 foreign countries.

MSU has the highest retention rate in the state of Mississippi with 85% of the freshman retuning for their sophomore year. The graduation rate is above the national average at 61%.

The University has over 300 student organizations including political and religious organizations, intramurals, the Shackouls Honors College, and Greek life.



The application for enrollment is available on 8/1 of the student’s senior year. A housing priority number is then assigned based on when the student applies.

University Scholarships

There are two University scholarship deadlines that apply to freshman, 12/1 for Distinguished Scholarships and 2/1 for General Academic Scholarships.

The deadline for scholarships that apply to transfer and community college students is 6/1.

Students need to be accepted to MSU and have the online Scholarship Resume submitted by the priority deadlines to be eligible for any scholarship.

MSU is more than a school, it’s a Family!
