As Mississippi State University’s largest and most diverse academic college, the College of Arts & Sciences seeks to faithfully and accurately represent the wide-ranging interests and concerns of its students. The Dean’s Student Advisory Council, comprised of undergraduate representatives from the College’s 14 academic departments, seeks to serve that purpose, as a connection between the students in the College of Arts & Sciences and the dean’s administration. This prestigious group of students informs the College’s leadership on the thoughts and concerns of the student population.

The Dean’s Student Advisory Council represents the College of Arts & Sciences to, not only current students, but to prospective students as well. Serving alongside representatives from the dean’s office, members of the Council travel to recruitment events on and off campus to relay how they’ve discovered their path to success through the College of Arts & Sciences. The Dean’s Student Advisory Council selects new members each Spring. Interested individuals should contact Alex Hammond, the College's Admissions Coordinator, for more information.
