As has been our tradition for the past several years, we will once again be hosting a Send-off Party for all incoming freshmen from our area that will be attending Mississippi State in the fall. This event has grown over the years (last year we had over 235 attendees) and is a fun way for alumni and their families to gather and give the incoming freshmen of our area a rousing start to their MSU experience. This note serves as an invitation to this year’s event.

Here is a list of some useful details for those going to the Gator Bowl:

2. The team will be wearing white but the fans are asked to wear MAROON
