What is Maroon VIP?
Maroon VIP is a volunteer student organization that greets all Mississippi State University guests with a warm southern welcome. These students serve the Welcome Center, the Office of the President and any other University department requesting the services of tours, information and events.
How Maroon VIPs are chosen?
Maroon VIPs have to meet a minimum standard to apply and must go through a group and individual interview with a selection committee. Once those are complete the selection committee determines if the student is compatible with the needs of the Welcome Center and President’s office. Character, personality, friendliness, dependability, and availability are key considerations when choosing MVIPs.
Recruitment is held during the fall semester and Maroon VIP training classes are offered the following spring (Wednesdays from 3-6 p.m.). Recruitment for 2016 is complete. We have selected 51 amazing new members. Congratulations to those students!
