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.

5 Recent Alumnus

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

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.

Weather: Feelin' Hot Hot Hot – Mississippi weather will be Mississippi weather. It's summer eight months out of the year and the sun takes its job seriously. You'll still see brave souls outside in the bowl (our quad area) year round, though.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is always changing and in the past semester, it snowed for like the first time in Mississippi. It was a record cold and pipe lines were affected and kept us out of school. It also rains alot here, somewhat a bummer.

Jackson has a fairly temperate climate. It won’t force you to run for cover indoors, nor to run for shade outdoors. At certain points in the spring, the campus looks fantastic. Outdoor events usually go off well with few rain cancellations. It doesn’t snow, although you can expect some hail and sleet at odd times of the year. And rain is always, no matter the month, a seasonal expectation.

For the most part, the beauty of the campus is overshadowed by murky autumn weather. It becomes commonplace that, after returning from spring break or the summer hiatus, professors or students that stayed remark about how great the campus was. Nevertheless, the first thing you will hear about Millsaps is the beautiful campus, and that has a lot to do with a forecast that frequently illuminates it.
