As the 2023-24 academic year commences at colleges and universities across the state, Mississippi State is reporting the largest freshman class in school history.

According to MSU vice president of strategic communications Sid Salter, the incoming freshman class in Starkville is shaping up to be over 3,700 students.

“We’re excited. The largest freshman class in the history of the institution is getting acclimated to being a Bulldog and learning the campus,” Salter said.  “We’re right around 3,700. Maybe a few more. The last number I saw was around 3,750.”

While classes at Mississippi State began last Wednesday, most colleges and universities are kicking off the school year this week.

Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Jackson State, Alcorn State, Mississippi Valley State, Mississippi College, Millsaps College, and Belhaven University began Monday morning. Tougaloo College and Delta State joined Mississippi State in starting last week.

For most schools, enrollment numbers will not be finalized until later in the fall. However, other universities are expected to announce record classes in the coming days.
