Anyone here from Starkville? Coming from the Bay Area in California. Couple of questions. How does the town/city accept students especially from out of town? Minority student acceptance in Starkville?

I went to State for 8 years to get my BA (graphic design) and MFA (computer animation).

It is a fantastic school and a pretty good town. Realize there isn't a whole lot to do in Starkville. It's a fairly small town that has everything you need, but it's not a sprawling metropolis. Luckily though you're just a few hours from everything so all will be well.

Also there are a couple of great bars to hang out in.

Dave's Dark Horse Tavern is my favorite Dive. Great drinks (and drink specials)..great atmosphere (kind of a dark tavernish affair)...amazing food and great people.

We have a pretty wide selection of minority, ethnic, and out of town students and I've never seen any of them being mistreated. Of course I mainly hang out at the Tavern and it's a very relaxed atmosphere that welcomes everybody.

I don't think you'll have any problem at all.

Also you get free pizza for your birthday at the Tavern. 1 large for every four people you bring with you!

edit: My mom is from Walnut Creek and moved here with my dad before I was born so I was born and raised here with a very liberal mindset. And aside from the occasional jackass yammering on about Fox News, I haven't had any problems being a liberal and being in Starkville.

It is definitely a suitcase college where all the kids from Jackson, Natchez, the coast, etc. pack up their things for the weekend and head home when there isn't a home football game, so that may be kind of tough to deal with. Other than that I think you will be accepted fine.
