Service aids deprived, handicapped students
This article concentrates on the Special Student Services program that Mississippi State University started in 1972 which focuses on freshmen retention. Students in the program are assigned an upperclassman counselor, meet with professional staff/graduate students for tutoring sessions, and have access to various financial packages through the Office of Financial Aid. Students remain in the program from their freshman year through their sophomore year. A photograph of Dr. Morris Kinsey with a student is included with the article.
