  • MSU Graduate Student, Curtis Virges - Connecting Cowbells and Nobels


    As if playing defensive tackle for the first-ranked Mississippi State University Bulldogs wasn’t difficult enough, Curtis Virges is also tackling a rigorous academic schedule by pursuing a Master of Science degree in Chemistry.

Curtis’ advisor is Dr. Keith Hollis, Associate Professor in the Chemistry Department. Read More
