The state flag has been removed from another Mississippi college’s campus, except for one specific location:

Mississippi State University recently joined six other universities in the Magnolia State by removing the state flag, which contains the controversial Confederate battle emblem.

According to The Reflector, university president Mark Keenum made the decision in response to requests from the deans of both the College of Veterinary Medicine and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, who had asked him to replace the state flag with a national flag, as had been done previously on the school’s drill field.

MSU has now removed the Mississippi flag from all locations on the campus except for the historic Perry Cafeteria, chief communications officer Sid Salter told Campus Reform.
