Meet A Current Student

Meka Clark

Meka Clark

"I love computers, hardware, and anything tech related.”

What do you do if you’re from Mississippi and you know that you want to stay in-state for your college education?

Well, ask senior, Electrical Engineering major, Meka Clark. Meka is from Greenville, Mississippi, and during her senior year, she knew that she wanted to stay in-state for her college education. She chose Mississippi State because the campus was inviting, and it was an in-state institution.

At MSU, Meka has been able to forge her own path to a degree that fits all of her interests. She is majoring in Electrical Engineering, and she is minoring in Mathematics and Philosophy. Taking advantage of the resources and paving your own way is something that Mississippi State and the Bagley College of Engineering both afford you to be able to do.

It’s never easy to pick a major, and sometimes it can be confusing. For Meka, she explained that she chose Electrical Engineering because, “I love computers, hardware, and anything tech related.” Electrical Engineering gives her the opportunity to explore all of those avenues.

As she prepares for her final semester, Meka is sharing with you some fun facts:

Favorite spot on campus: I don't have one place!

Favorite place to eat in Starkville: Stromboli’s

What is a fun fact that you wish every student knew about the BCoE or MSU:

ECE hosts an annual crawfish classic during the spring semester.

Want to meet students like Meka and hear their stories? Book your campus visit today! We would love to meet you!
