MSU Meridian hosted its final orientation session Thursday before classes begin Aug. 19.
Students received information about the school and were shown where they will be taking their classes on campus, the financial aid office and the campus police if they need to use those services.
Students also got information about scholarships that they might be able to receive.
"People see the value of a college education and with MSU Meridian being able to offer the Riley Next Step Scholarship to transfer students," said recruiting coordinator Candy Adams. "This is a full tuition scholarship. We are very thankful to have this, and that just helps to bring more new students in."
If you have any questions about scholarships, call the MSU Meridian financial aid office at 601-484-0134.
