Description: 

The "agricultural college" that Hoake McCarron attends, and the town it's in, where he spends a year "without even matriculating," could be anywhere (151). And his behavior during the 17 months he spends there suggests Hoake was not particularly interested in anything the college had to teach. But since Mississippi State University has a College of Agriculture, we use its hometown, Starkville, as a way to put a spot on our map.
