November is here, future Bulldogs! This semester has been a whirlwind, and there are a few things to keep in mind:
I hope you have had a wonderful, be it different, semester. If you’ve not visited campus, I encourage you to do so! We are hosting families every Monday-Friday, and we would love to see you on campus!
“Computer Science and Engineering faculty Cindy Bethel was named in Analytics Insight as one of the World's 50 Most Renowned Women in Robotics."

Bagley College of Engineering and College of Business will be hosting an event for students interested in the below majors:
"As an international student, I was confident that I could find a home away from home in Starkville.”
Meet Senior Mechanical Engineering major Nirmal Bhatt from Collierville, Tennessee.
Nirmal’s drive to pursue a Mechanical Engineering degree was fueled by his passion for math and science to create solutions for the world’s problems. In his words, “I found that studying Mechanical Engineering would give me a broad understanding of the profession and teach me to solve problems through critical thinking.”
Many students have multiple choices in where they attend school. As a non-resident student, Nirmal decided on MSU because of his campus visit. According to him, “When I first visited this campus, I found the people of MSU to be warm and welcoming. As an international student, I was confident that I could find a home away from home in Starkville. MSU’s engineering curriculum is also rigorous and well known, and I knew I would be prepared to work as an engineer in the workplace if I graduated from MSU.”
It is definitely encouraged for each student to enrich and diversify their educational experience while they are here at MSU. There are multiple ways to be involved whether it’s competition teams, service organizations, or research. Nirmal is currently involved with our Space Cowboys rocket building team, Engineering Recruitment Leaders, our Speech and Debate Team, and he is conducting research.
Here are a couple of fun facts from Nirmal:
Fun fact he wishes every student knew: “Over 100 companies come to our Career Expos and opportunities are available for all majors!”
