Due to enforcement of the university’s color scheme, various tables received new $1,500 vinyl banners at this year’s Mustangs Rally held in D.L. Ligon Coliseum on March 5. In addition, 231 prospective students attended, participating in activities such as a tour of the campus, information on intended majors, and a chance to meet with admissions and financial aid. The students also had opportunities to meet with faculty, coaches and current students at an organization fair, and to visit housing facilities. 

 

Cynthia Coronado, Early College High School senior, said, “I would like to major in clinical lab. It was fun to learn about the major and seeing the different housing options available for me.”

 

Maia Dean, Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences senior, said, “I want to come to MSU, because it’s close to home. I want to major in biology, but I really enjoyed the information I received about the respiratory care program. The booth representative was very passionate about respiratory care. I also liked the freshman dorm, I wouldn’t mind the community bathroom, and the layout is actually appealing. I’ve done my research on this school, and it’s definitely on my list.”

Corina Smith, Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences senior, said, “I enjoyed my experience today. What I really wanted to know is how other students felt about this school. How it is to be in a place that’s so small, how the dating life is, sorority life, and organizations. I wish more students were here that we could meet, but it’s a Saturday.”

 

Maritza Ferretiz, Townview Magnet Center senior, said, “I was excited to see the different dorms. I want to major in biology.”

 

 AJ Artis, La Porte High School senior, said, “I like the fact that MSU is a close community and everyone is so friendly. The campus isn’t that big, but it doesn’t feel too small. There’s a lot of people here that I could see myself friends with.”

 

Garrett Hinton, Conroe High School senior, said, “I really like MSU, because it’s a lot smaller than other schools and easy to get around. My favorite part were the giant gold balls. I would like to major in psychology.” 

 

Gasmyne Cox, Bryan Adams, said, “I’m thinking about majoring in mass communication or computer science. I heard about MSU through my school’s AVID, a college-preparation course, and I really enjoyed the campus tour.” 

 

Holly Deedman. Ranger College transfer student wants to transfer and join our Dental Hygiene program. “I heard about MSU through Midwestern Advertising, and decided to take a campus tour. I wanted to come back, so I came to Mustangs Rally. I liked the choir and cheerleading booths at the rally.”

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article indicated that there had been a change in the university’s color scheme. There has been no change. University officials are simply enforcing the official colors adopted by the Board of Regents in 1987 through official licensing channels. The Wichitan regrets the error.
