How do I get involved with the Student Association?

It’s easy! All students who are registered for at least one semester credit hour at Mississippi State University are members of the Student Association. Between its three branches, the Student Association offers a wide variety of opportunities to get involved, gain valuable experience, and make a difference on campus!

If you would like to further discuss a problem or understand legislation passed by the Student Association Senate, meetings are on Tuesday evenings at 6 PM.

Various events are held throughout the entire year that are geared toward student involvement and we encourage all students to come and participate.
