4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have loved all of my professors, however, have had issues with some professors who are not willing to be flexible with students within a certain department. Class sizes are perfect for my preference, my largest one being about 13, and I also love that Millsaps focuses on class discussion and debate.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have not utilized these resources as much my first two years, but now that I am a junior, I will be using them more often.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Jackson is not the safest place in Mississippi, however, Millsaps does a wonderful job of making students and families feel safe and secure while living on campus.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The buildings need serious updating and renovations. The HVAC systems NEED to be replaced and the bathrooms have not been touched since the 60s.There are also safety concerns as the doors will often get stuck. Residence Life does all that it can. The administration, however, does not put forth the effort or money to fix serious issues.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Our Greek life is responsible and a great asset to the Jackson community. Philanthropy events are always a huge success for how small the school is and the people are very dedicated and worthwhile.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We are a division 3 school; therefore, our academics precede athletics. Our sports, however, make it very possible to focus on outside leadership opportunities and community/campus involvement.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love Millsaps College. I love the friendships I've made and the experiences I've had during my time so far. My one complaint is that the school overcharges it's students and makes it next to impossible to attend all four years without crippling debt. Tuition rises every year and students are offered no additional scholarships to make up for the increases in tuition and housing. Housing has also risen in the past few years with little to no alterations or restorations. Mold grows in the dorms and the humidity is so great that the walls and floors become slick, making walking around a hazard. Not to mention that the boiler in the Freshmen girl's dorm is 15 years past its expiration date. The administration continues to ignore these problems, hiding behind our wonderful academic programs and inspiring professors/students. If not for this, the campus is amazing.

Athletics: I only participated in the survey to write this review. Well, I suppose it's less a review than a rant. The fact that MSU and Ole Miss are ranked higher than Millsaps is offensive. People are entitled to have opinions; but when they are this blatantly wrong, I had to say something. Not only is Millsaps better academically than either of the top two candidates on this list, it is better, by a huge margin, at preparing it's students in a much more profound and holistic manner for life and being a good person. The acceptance of all races, religions and the like are so much more deeply rooted in what makes Millsaps what it is. So in closing, believe whatever you would like. Just know we know the truth.

Off-Campus Housing: I would definitely prefer on campus housing. Apartment and suite style housing is available for upperclassmen and is just as good as an off campus apartment.

Local Area: There are a couple of malls where you can shop and it's pretty decent. They have free people in Jackson which is a plus. The students at Millsaps participate a lot in the community as well as helping out in the community. Millsaps has a program called Wellsprings where they help out in the local public schools. Jackson is a busy city so there is always something going on and a lot of things to do.

Guys & Girls: There are a variety of people. It is very easy to find people just like you that are your friends, people who aren't like you but are still your friends, and you have those people that are just fun to be around when you are going out. Everyone is everywhere because it is such a small school so you have those certain groups or people that you do certain things with. But no matter where you are, you will find a friend even and especially when you are not looking for one.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
