Facilities & Directions
The Newell-Grissom Building, with a colorful and varied history as a campus landmark that spans seven decades, is in its 22nd year as the home for Mississippi State’s Volleyball Bulldogs in 2018.
Including nearly 600 maroon chair back seats installed in the arena’s east stands prior to the start of the 2006 campaign, the volleyball-exclusive facility, featuring 12,000 square feet of hardwood flooring, has arena seating for more than 2,000.
Fifteen of the 20 most-attended volleyball events at the Newell-Grissom Building have occurred in the last five years. MSU eclipsed the 1,000-mark in attendance twice in 2011, including a facility-record 3,021 that packed the arena August 26 for a season-opening match against Southern Illinois. MSU and Florida were the only SEC teams to eclipse the 3,000-attendance mark in a regular season match in 2011. The Bulldogs also brought in a crowd of 4,525 in a 3-0 victory against No. 25 Kentucky in an Oct. 14 matchup at Humphrey Coliseum, setting the state of Mississippi’s attendance record for a volleyball match.
Per NCAA rules, sports camps are open to any and all entrants (limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender).
