An Opportunity for MGCCC Students to Learn About Transferring to Ole Miss

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College will host University of Mississippi fans and employees for the MGCCC home football game on Thursday, October 12, at A.L. May Memorial Stadium in Perkinston. The Bulldogs have a 7 p.m. kickoff against the Southwest Mississippi Community College Bears.

“We are so excited to have Ole Miss participate in our home football game tonight, and we hope our students will take the opportunity to learn more about the transfer scholarships available to them from UM,” said Dr. Mary S. Graham, MGCCC president.

Nearly 70 percent of MGCCC students plan to transfer to a university, and University Nights give our students the chance to explore what our partner institutions have to offer.

MGCCC hosted University Nights last year in the newly renovated stadium at the Perkinston Campus. This year, more universities have been included in the events.

University Nights scheduled for the 2017 season have included Mississippi State University, Alcorn State University, The University of Southern Mississippi, and at this week’s game, The University of Mississippi.
