Initiated in 2004, The Drill
is a pep rally held on MSU's historic Drill Field to welcome new and returning students to campus, as well as raise excitement about the upcoming athletic seasons.The official new academic year celebration is co-sponsored by the Alumni Association and the Student Association.
This tradition has its roots in the military history of MSU and is an opportunity for returning Bulldogs and new additions to the MSU family to gather and celebrate all the spirit and excitement that is part of being a Bulldog. There is an academic processional, new students sign the university honor code, there is a pep rally, the band plays Hail State and other MSU favorites, and remarks are heard from the SA president, the head football coach and the university president.
