Why did you choose to attend Mississippi State University?

Choosing MSU was not a hard decision for me. Both of my parents graduated from this great university so I was born and raised a Bulldog. I also had an opportunity to play football for the school so it made my decision that much easier.

How did you select business as your major?

Going into college I didn’t really have any idea of what I wanted to do. I had heard that there is always a demand for accountants in the business world so I felt like I should try it out. After my first two accounting classes I decided I liked it and bought into the program.
