Even though most students have left MSU for the summer, the physical impact of the ever-growing size and population of campus can still be felt in surrounding areas. In terms of roads and traffic, Oktibbeha County is working to ensure easy access to the areas students frequent the most, especially Blackjack Road. However, Board of Supervisors President Orlando Trainer said that the problems facing this area are unfortunately not easily fixed.

“We have more challenges than we have resources to meet those challenges,” Trainer said.
