5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather isn't a huge factor in my experience. I'm from Mississippi so I am used to the crazy weather, 80 degrees one day and 40 the next.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of fast food places, but there is an equal amount of chain and local restaurants. Prices vary depending on how good of quality you want. But even nonexpensive food is still good.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is great. There are always options. We have two places to eat other than in the cafeteria, Reubens and Kava Cafe. I enjoy both places very much when I want something other than Caf food.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not everyone enjoys going to sporting events, but if you do it is a great time. Everyone is positive and supports everyone.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There really is not anything negative about the school.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are definitely there for people that are interested, but they don't dominate the social scene.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is not always much exciting things offered at night. The school does a great job at offering day time activities. Off campus places are not open to many people and so it is difficult to find a convenient off campus location.

Scholarships: Millsaps provides MANY scholarships to help you with your undergraduate education.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drugs are not a problem at Millsaps, however, they are not hard to come by if one feels the need to experiment.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: One of the bright spots of this school is it's lax drinking policy. Opaque cup is all you need.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Top 100 school, great liberal arts college. Most professors have a PhD.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Most students that come to Millsaps generally play a sport. Not everyone does but a very high percentage play at least one sport. The athletics here is amazing. There is a good gym and a hangar dome where basketball and volleyball games are held. Our football field is nicely located besides our cafeteria and gym. Students love to go support our football team and the other sports.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: In order to get to good food besides Wendy's which is right beside the campus and McDonald's down the street, you have to drive at least 15 minutes to reach more restaurants and good places to eat. There's a good variety of places to eat in the more central part of Jackson and Pearl which is 15 minutes away. The food cost is just like regular pricing. Millsaps doesn't get student discounts which sucks.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The process of acing your freshmen year is to not party too much. You have to make sure to keep your priorities straight. Coming straight from high school you have expectations of football games, rush week, and parties. In my first semester, I realized how your social life should come second to your studies. If you can handle them both then good, but there are some students who don't realize how they have to buckle down until the end of their first semester, if they make it to the second semester, things get alot easier. In freshmen year, just remember to try to keep your priorities straight. Tips for admission? Have a good ACT/SAT score and write a good essay. Be truthful with whatever you write. It isn't hard to get into Millsaps. And don't pull alot of all-nighters.

Transportation: We don't have any for of transportation available, it depends on you; Jackson has a public bus though

5 Recent Alumnus

Weather: You get a little bit of everything, snow, hot, cold etc.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: For the most part, the administration isn't very strict.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors here are fantastic, engaging educators who want to see their students do well. They will make time to speak with you whenever you need it, and establishing connections with them leads to great internships and even friendships.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Everything is different, honestly. You just have to go to the campus to understand.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: There is only one truly hideous building on campus and it's the Academic Complex. Most of the architecture is heavily influenced by colonial works, but this monstrosity is a grey cement block of ugly. However, the huge green Bowl is always lovely and the campus grounds are well kept. The Athletic building is clean and nice, the library is well-stocked and exceedingly helpful, and there's an overall sense of campus togetherness at events.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Bacot, the housing for freshman, is simply awful. It's almost like a rite of passage though, but they're renovating it in a few years.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Not so strict but if you do something utterly ridiculous you have to speak with the Dean, who may kick you out.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Weather can get pretty hot but with the smaller campus size it's not a huge problem walking back and forth from classes. The past month we had a hurricane that took us out of classes for a couple of days.

Despite all their qualms with the academics, the facilities, and the social aspects of Millsaps, many students look on their years here as a great personal investment. For young adults that need challenges, they will find them. For those who need nourishment, there will be enough of that as well. The administration is truly committed to this. With 12 students to each faculty member, the school gives higher education a personal touch that distinguishes success from failure. Of course, no student who wished to stay forever could be considered a success, and most students are extremely eager to begin their futures. Sometimes, these ambitions become evident in the highly political, possibly even malevolent, maneuvering of on-campus gossip.

The student body is respectfully conservative—there will be little in the form of bitter disputes of beliefs. Millsaps College prides itself on being a transformative experience, and many students come back more thoughtful, more liberal, and more mature. It can be found in Jackson, which has been labeled ‘The Best of the New South,’ and has made strides toward becoming a more metropolitan center. All of this contributes to the feeling that a freshman standing at the door of his college years at Millsaps College will be beginning an individual and unique process.
