Collaboration offers Education Expos in South Mississippi

Two Mississippi State University units are collaborating to host a series of expos for potential students in the southern portion of the state.

Mississippi State University’s College of Education and Center for Distance Education will host education expos on Monday, Jan. 29, and Tuesday, Jan. 30, at four locations.

-- Jan. 29, Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, 246 Dolan Ave., Gulfport, MS 39507

-- Jan. 29, Pascagoula River Audubon Center, 5107 Arthur St., Moss Point, MS 39563

-- Jan. 30, Chesterfield’s Bar & Grill, 4646 Hardy St., Hattiesburg, MS 39402

-- Jan. 30, Buttercup Cafe, 112 N. 2nd St., Bay St. Louis, MS 39520

Beginning at 3 p.m. and lasting until 7 p.m., the events will include program representatives from the College of Education, as well as from the Center for Distance Education.

Geared toward recruitment, the expos will serve as an effort to expand program outreach for community college transfers and non-traditional students who may be interested in MSU. Showcases will be available for additional information pertaining to undergraduate, online and graduate degree programs.

The event is free to the public and will feature door prizes and refreshments.
