The Difference of One
Studies and statistics have shown that students who are involved with at least one organization have higher GPAs, are more likely to graduate, and have a more enjoyable college experience.
Mississippi State encourages students to find at least one organization that they can develop a passion for and give back to during their time as a student. To help facilitate this endeavor, the Difference of One campaign was established in 2008. This service is a website which contains contact information for organizations on the Mississippi State's campus. It is located at http://www.one.msstate.edu and serves as the one-stop-shop for campus involvement.
In addition to the Difference of One, certain Cabinet positions are devoted to hosting events and helping to perform outreach projects to student groups on campus. These include the directors of Health Education and Disabled Student Affairs, Minority Student Affairs, International Student Affairs, and Veterans' Affairs. Those contacts can be found on the Cabinet page, listed under the "Branches" tab above.
