4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: From what I've heard about public school is they offer much better dorms for the same prices as our cheap dorms at Millsaps. So I'm jealous about that. The best dorms are the new dorms: John, Susanna, and Charles. They're suites that are singles meaning only one person lives in a room, but two people share a bathroom. Also, I've seen one they seem lonely cause you don't really have a roommate. Plus, they run you about $10, 000 a year. So if that's your thing do it. The other dorms are practically the same and run you anywhere from $6000-$9000 a year. I won't complain about Bacot which is the cheapest and the freshmen dorm. It makes it very convenient to meet people and get to know others. I would say the housing process would be hard in that everybody fights for the cheap dorms mainly Sanderson since it's right next to the Olin, the science building. So, if you want a cheap dorm, you gotta have a high GPA.

Off-Campus Dining: Well when I eat off-campus, I mainly eat at fast food restaurants. I've eaten on every Mexican restaurant on Lakeland. They're all delicious btw. Sal & Mookie's is also pretty good. It'll run you a good $15 though, but I think it's worth it.

Greek Life: I don't agree with Greek life because it was system based on elitism and segregation. You can pretty much tell by how many black people participate in Greek Life. There are about 300 students in Greek Life and only 4 black people. I don't participate in Greek Life because I was looked at for a potential new member in a sea of girls of colour. There was one white girl and she got the bid in a predominantly white sorority. So there's that. Most Greek students don't even get to live in the houses. Most non-Greeks won't join because either 1) they don't have the money or 2) they enjoy their freedom. If you're up for waking up early on weekends and spending study time partying and sacrificing grades for partying then join Greek Life by all means, but I don't agree with it.

Off-Campus Housing: There's an apartment complex right behind the school. It's easy to get in and cheap, but it's kind of sketchy, and I'd be scared for my life.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: These are the most beautiful guys I've ever seen in my life. They're all attractive and athletic. It's like man heaven!!! There are some creepy ones though. You just got to avoid those. There are some very pretty girls here too. Some of them, like me, are ignored and others already have boyfriends so there is some dating on campus, but not much unfortunately.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: I really like Millsaps because they're very accepting of different cultures and religious. I'm used to people telling other religions that they're going to burn in hell if they don't accept Christ. At Millsaps, we have an interfaith ceremony at the beginning of each year where people of different faiths come together and have a worship service. It's wonderful!! We tend to be very accepting. As for race, many ethnicities tend to be separated, and I know it's mainly because of Greek Life which I don't agree with at all.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: As for the 2013-2014 year, it was okay. It fed me. So there's that. For the 2014-2015 year, we're getting a new dining service so I don't know how that's going to be. Hopefully much better!!!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I love my major so much!! We get to study the media and all its flaws. I think it's beautiful to finally have others agree that the American system is very flawed. The coursework tends to be pretty heavy since classes tend to meet only twice a week, but it's very interesting!!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration is very simple. I do mine way before the registration process. The professors are extremely helpful and practically beg for you to see them and ask for help. The professors here are more caring than those in high school!! The library study rooms are the best. They tend to be a little warm, and you can't talk loud in them. Everybody will hear your conversations. I learned that the hard way. I think the curriculum is very do-able, but I took AP classes in high school to prepare me.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Student life depends on the student. I'm very active in different parts of student life. I'm on the campus newspaper, I volunteer with our community engagement department, and I'm a part of the religious services. Students that aren't that involved tend to feel like Millsaps isn't for them. You get what you put in.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I have an internship now. I work two days a week for $8 an hour. It's an amazing pay, and I get to use things I've learned in other classes at Millsaps other than those in my major. I think that's pretty cool.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I didn't really have any trouble getting into Millsaps. It did take a month before they told me whether or not I was accepted. That was a pretty stressful month.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our football team was the only undefeated team in Mississippi until their last game against Rhodes. I'd say that's pretty great!!

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It's easy to get into, but harder to receive scholarships.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Being a student-athlete is a hard challenge, but it can be done well!

Campus Dining: Healthy choices, but we only have a cafeteria and a night restaurant.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not many students live off-campus, so its not really discussed.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are a variety of students. Hippy, Frat, preppy, sporty...the list goes on.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Many options available. Professors have great connections with local hospitals, business, and schools. Students are usually paid during their internships and they get good recommendations from them.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Its expensive, but worth it. I should have focused more on my grades Freshman year instead of getting caught up in the party scene. I want to have a high enough GPA and good MCAT scores to get into Medical School. Luckily, I have helpful professors that are guiding me to reach my goal.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The sciences are really popular at our school, but the most challenging area of study. Professors are very helpful and available though. The class sizes are very small compared to other universities and student study groups are very good.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Students can choose from a variety of classes and can even create their own majors/minors. The workload is heavy, so you have to be willing to put in the effort. Not saying you can't survive being mediocre.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Our school is big on athletics. We have a good quality sports' center that is available for all students, faculty, and sometimes community. We have great counselors always available and very friendly staff in the student center. The library is large enough for anyone to find a quiet place to study. The library could have more sources though. Our bowl is a popular attraction for students to lay out and enjoy sunlight on the lawn; its used for studying, music, and frisbee. Greek Life is 80% of the student body, so hangouts and parties are mostly at the frat houses, occasionally at our own off-campus bar. Most of our students are athletes and are supported by the entire campus, so athletic events are top notch at Millsaps. Go Majors!

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.
