Mississippi State University President Mark Keenum says the university is undergoing massive infrastructure and expects record fall enrollment.
Keenum, a Corinth High School graduate, told the Daily Corinthian this week that the university set a record enrollment last fall with 20,400 students, and expects to top the total this fall.
The university has five campuses statewide, 12 research centers and an office in every county. Keenum said main-campus construction under way includes two new residence halls and a $25 million football complex. A major renovation is under way at Lee Hall in the center of campus.
A basketball new pavilion recently was completed and officials are in final negotiations with bidders to expand Davis-Wade Stadium.
