If MSU Buildings Were Celebrities

If MSU Buildings Were Celebrities

Each one of Mississippi State's buildings has its own personality.

Lee Hall

Lee Hall would be Brad Pitt. Pitt thinks he is the leader of Hollywood, sort of like Lee Hall thinks it is the leader of the Drill Field. Swalm is filled with mostly offices and not many classrooms. This building faces all other buildings, and is also one of the prettiest buildings on campus. Brad Pitt is also one of the prettiest faces in Hollywood, and he knows it.


Also one of the prettiest buildings on campus, Swalm would have to be Jennifer Aniston, one of the prettiest women in Hollywood. Swalm and Lee Hall face each other on the drill field, which represents how Jennifer and Brad used to be married. Now, they compete for the attention of fans. Swalm has more classrooms than Lee Hall, so I think Swalm is in the lead for more fans.

Harned Hall

Being right behind Lee Hall, Harned would have to be none other than Angelina Jolie. She has Brad's back, which makes this the perfect location for Harned.


Being one of the oldest and most famous buildings on Mississippi State's campus, Dorman would have to be none other than Betty White. She is known throughout the world and is one of the oldest actresses still performing.

The Union

Because The Union is one of the most frequently used buildings on campus, The Union would be represented by Ellen DeGeneres. Her show is one of the most frequently watched shows in America, and almost everyone enjoys it, just like everyone enjoys all of the yummy food inside The Union.


Bowen Hall would have to be Lindsey Lohan. With location and beauty, this building has much potential and has a lots to offer. But once you go into one of the hour and fifteen minute classes, you cannot help but want to die. You step in Bowen one way, and you come out another. Bowen is similar to how Lohan enter Hollywood -- sweet and innocent -- and came out a lunatic.


Carpenter is definitely Kim Kardashian. Being four stories tall and still modeled as a 1970s building, Carpenter is one of the worst buildings on Campus. Kind of like Kim is one of the worst stars in Hollywood.


McCool is, undoubtedly, Emma Stone. McCool is one of the better buildings on campus, like Stone is one of the better actresses in Hollywood. Having a class in McCool makes it a little better.

Allen Hall

Allen Hall would be Paul Giamatti. In case you don't know who that is, he is the guy that played Marty Wolf on Big Fat Liar -- the one that turns blue and looks like this.

Allen is definitely the ugliest building on MSU's campus, kind of how Giamatti is one of the worst looking actors in Hollywood. Sorry you had to hear it from us, Paul, but the blue skin just doesn't work on everyone.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

The Football World Loses One Of Its Finest Players

Bart Starr passed away and NFL players, coaches, and fans all mourn the loss of the Packer legend, but his life and career will live on in hearts of Packer nation forever.


Bart Starr passed away at the age of 85 in Birmingham, Alabama. The NFL lost a great player. The Green Bay Packers lost a hero. And, the world lost a true gentleman. Starr's legacy has surpassed his accomplishments on the gridiron. He inspired not only his peers but the generations that have come after him. He is — and always — will be remembered as a Hall of Famer, a champion, and a Packer.

Bart Starr was a Packers legend. Starr led Green Bay to six division titles and five world championships. As the quarterback of Vince Lombardi's offense, he kept the machine going and executed the plays like no other. His mastery of the position was a large part of the Packers success in the 1960s. Starr was also the perfect teammate for the perfect team. His leadership put him in command of the Packers. Starr's time in Green Bay will not be forgotten by former players, coaches, and the fans.

Bart Starr's resume is rivaled by few in NFL history. He played in 10 postseason games and won 9 of them. He led the Packers to victory in Super Bowls I and II and won the MVP award in both games. He was the MVP of the league in 1966 and was named to the NFL All-Decade Team of the 1960s. The Packers retired his number 15 and Starr has been inducted into the Packers and Pro Football Hall of Fame.

After his playing days, Starr would become the head coach of the Packers. He could not repeat the success he had on the field from the 1960s teams. His coaching years do not take away from his legacy as one of the all-time great Packers. Starr was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.

One of Starr's last visits to Lambeau field was on a cold November night in 2015. Starr and his wife attended a ceremony in which the Packers retired Brett Favre's jersey number. Starr was the perfect personification of what it meant to be a Packer. His most heroic moment came in the 1967 NFL Championship Game. The Ice Bowl came down to a third and goal in Lambeau Field's south endzone against the Dallas Cowboys. Starr came to the sidelines and bravely told Vince Lombardi that he can sneak it in for a game-winning touchdown. Lombardi then replied, "Run it, and let's get the hell out of here." Starr ran a quarterback sneak for the game-winner and the Packers were off to Super Bowl II. Without Starr, Green Bay would not have won a second straight Super Bowl. His leadership in big game moments will live with Packers fans for a lifetime.

Vince Lombardi: A Football Life - The Ice Bowl

Starr leaves behind his wife Cherry, his son, and three granddaughters. Packers fans will have a tight grip on the memories Bart Starr and the 60s teams created. Starr left behind a template for being a Green Bay Packer. He also left a template for being a good man and a gentleman of the game of football. He was a competitor and a leader. Packer nation mourns for the loss of one of the finest human beings the game has seen.
