Millsaps gives one the impression of high school more often than not. But that does fade away. The Greek scene is very inclusive, and that can be a nice meeting spot for singles on campus. Guys, by most estimations, are big-brother types, and if you’re looking for a young professional type who is from an upper-middle-class background, you have hit the jackpot. Girls are much like the stereotypes that their sorority pins would inspire in one’s imagination—needy, slightly immature, vaguely superficial. A sociologist might acknowledge that this is a reflection of environment. Some students become so swallowed up by a specific niche very early that they have to delay that crucial college soul-searching. The administration has also developed a tendency toward coddling students.
As far as ‘the goods’ are concerned, it’s assumed that Millsaps College has a very good-looking campus. Two qualities that have a high value on campus are taste and style. Evening wear usually includes three-piece suits, or even tuxedos, afternoon wear might include a dinner jacket, and morning wear rarely is more liberal than an ironed and tasteful pajama suit. Both the guys and girls are equally involved on campus. There are probably more women involved in volunteer organizations, but more males in varsity sports. Student government has a very balanced expression of both genders.
