Sponsored by the Mississippi State University Alumni Association, the colleges, the Meridian campus and the Office of the Provost, the Alumni Fellows Program recognizes alumni who have distinguished themselves in their respective careers. They are selected by each college or school and are invited to return to campus to meet with students, both in the classroom and informally
For 23 years, this educational activity has served as a means for enriching students' university experiences by exposing them to outstanding alumni who are willing to talk about specific competencies, attitudes, and efforts needed to succeed. It is an exciting and stimulating way to blend the interests of the accomplished professional, the student, and the professor.
Alumni Fellows are chosen to return to campus as distinguished guests and as mentors, friends, and counselors. They are honored in recognition of the ultimate measure of a university - the quality of its alumni.

- Mr. Thomas H. “Hunt” Shipman – College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
