Welcome to our Partnership Pathway program with East Central Community College! My name is Ben Pace, and I will be your Academic Advisor during your transition to MSU-Meridian. MSU-Meridian offers a variety of degree programs in Arts & Sciences, Business, and Education, all while allowing you to stay local, pay less, and earn more. As a former student of East Central Community College, I was assisted by some outstanding academic advisors that helped me transfer to Mississippi State University smoothly. I would love to provide you with the same support. I will be on campus several days a week, so stop by my office in the Mamie Ethel Burton Library, and let’s talk about which degree program is right for you! I am excited to help you become a part of the Bulldog family at MSU-Meridian! Let me know how I can help you accomplish your goals and Hail Dear ol’ State!
