New Location

We’re in a new location! Due to construction at the Humphrey Coliseum, we will be hosting our Expo at the:

Mill Conference Center
600 Russell Street
Starkville, MS 39759


Event Details

Because of this new location, space will be limited, which means we’ll have to adjust accordingly. To ensure there is enough space for everyone, employers will only be able to attend ONE day. This means, there will be new employers EACH DAY...so, more opportunities for you!

Tuesday, September 13, 2022
12 Noon – 4:00 p.m. | Open to ALL majors

AND

Wednesday, September 14, 2022
