STARKVILLE, Miss.—The merging of two campus traditions is happening at Mississippi State as the 90-year-old University Florist soon will share space with the MAFES Sales Store, home to an MSU icon for 85 years—MSU cheese.

The University Florist, operated by MSU, is moving from 100 Lee Blvd. to the A.B. McKay Food Research and Enology Lab located at 205 Technology Blvd. The florist will move to delivery only for floral arrangements and gifts beginning Sept. 5, and on Sept. 20 will open with grab-and-go floral bouquets, McCartys Pottery and popular MSU merchandise in the pop-in shop within the MAFES Sales Store at 925 Stone Blvd.

Aramark, MSU’s dining service, will be repurposing the former florist space on Lee Boulevard for facility expansion.

Selecting the University Florist for floral and gift needs supports Mississippi State students. Those enrolled in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences’ Floral Management concentration manage the day-to-day operations of the University Florist, providing unique hands-on experience in the retail floristry business.

Free MSU campus delivery is available. For more information visit or call 662-325-3585.
