Fall leaves cover the Starkville campus as students complete classes for the week.

Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Colleagues, 
As the end of the fall semester nears and the holiday season approaches, I am especially mindful of your many contributions to Mississippi State University, and am most thankful for your dedication to the many people and communities we serve. 
In order to say thank you, to allow employees who will be traveling to do so more safely, and to take advantage of an energy-savings opportunity, the university will close at noon on Wednesday, November 27, the day before Thanksgiving. Established policies and procedures related to work on a holiday, if required, will apply. 
My family and I hope that each one of you has a safe and happy Thanksgiving. 
Mark E. Keenum
