5 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security is very good at their jobs. There is not a lot of crime or problems on campus. The real crime is in the certain parts of Jackson but Millsaps College does a GREAT job of protecting its students with information and security.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Rush is hard for everyone. No one likes having to smile the whole time and be on their best behavior. Rush at Millsaps College is tougher especially KD and Chi O. Usually in the end, everyone has found their right place and that is something Millsaps Greek is good at. They are good getting everyone in the sorority that they fit best in. The major concerns are appearance, GPA, and composure. You need to be able to hold conversation, find things in common with the other girls, smile, be nice, and be flirty (like just over do it, not fake, but look interested. you have to play the game if you want to win). because in the end, no one actually acts that way. when you are finally in your sorority thats when everyone is themselves and you start to make your best friends.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Most students are involved in sports. If you are in a sorority or fraternity, there are a ton of options for intramural sports; even if you don't want to participate, you will find yourself at times playing. The sporting events are really fun to go to because you know practically all of the players and a lot of your best friends are on the teams so it's fun to smack talk and drink with your friends while cheering your other friends on. School spirit is pretty good. People wear Millsaps apparel all the time and all year round. It's kind of fun because I've found myself on days where I'm sitting in a classroom and everyone is wearing purple. (besides maybe the teacher). Millsaps is great! just do it.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Party scene is good. Even if nothing is going on, you can always walk into a house and find people to hang with. At the beginning of the year, I would say has the most nights of going out. It's fun to just go to the houses, drink, dance, play beer pong, or just sit in one of the rooms and talk with your friends. There are a good number of swaps that sororities have with other fraternities on Thursday nights. Fraternities and sororities also have formals and weekend trips sometimes. Those are a lot of fun!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of family owned or non chain restaurants so there is plenty variety. Sal and Mookie's is a very well owned pizza place, which is used a lot for gatherings. They also do ice cream as well and there are a lot of discounts. There is a good bit of fast food like Taco Bell, Cain's, Whattaburger, Arby's, and McDonald's. There are lots of gas stations for late night coffee runs, snacks, and drinks. There are plenty of bars and clubs to go to when you don't want to stay on campus; plus, Jackson has uber so you don't have to worry about driving if you don't want to. Millsaps College usually does a good job of advertising local businesses and restaurants; they love to promote the city of Jackson. It really is a cool place to live even if you don't go outside of Millsaps gates all that often.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Basically if anyone is being too loud or disruptive and someone reports you then security will come check it out. Mostly they only mess with you if you are affecting someone else's studying or sleeping or living habits. As long as you are respectful, they will not mess with you. If you are outside, hide any bottles or labels. Put it in a solo cup. If you are in the frat houses, you are basically in a safe zone unless someone in your sorority can catch you with a violation. But not to scare you because everyone is pretty chill and lenient. No one is usually looking to get anyone in trouble, especially because that means more work for them too.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Caf- good for variety. They always have certain foods so you can count on those like cereal, chicken, hamburgers, pizza, pb&j sandwiches. its free.

Kava- taste good. sells croissants, bagels, muffins, and light sandwiches. but it costs Major Bucks.

Reuben's- freshfood type food. good when its late and everything else is closed. can use you free meal swipe between 8:00-10:00 pm.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I get financial aid from academic scholarship. Millsaps College gave me the most money, but then again, it is the most expensive school in Mississippi. It is well worth it too! I also get money from a PACT. The staff at Millsaps are very helpful and easy to talk to so if you do encounter a problem, they are always on the other end of the line to help.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The new dorms and New South are the nicest places to live. I like the new dorms because you do not have a roommate and you only have to share a bathroom with one other person. The social atmosphere is good. There is always something school related going on if you are into that. The frat houses always have something going on, even if it is low key; or people tend to just go hangout with each other in their rooms or in someone's house off campus. The food is pretty good and Reuben's is open until 2 am so you can get something late. The dorms (except Bacot) have elevators so it is easy to move in and out as long as you have boxes you can throw all the little/random things into.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are not many options for you to choose. They only have football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, softball, tennis, baseball

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are no off-campus housing and most of the students just live on campus for 4 years. The surrounding area is also unsafe for students to live off-campus.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are not many off-campus dining in the surrounding area. You have to go quite far to get what you want.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Millsaps is not that strict and students usually get a lot of freedom as long as they do not do anything that violate the Code of Conduct or the Honour Code.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarship is generous but the housing is too expensive, which makes the cost still expensive.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food in the caf is bad. They offer the same dishes and it gets really boring. The food is often too salty or too sweet.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing selections are very limited but expensive. The 3 newest dorms are the only ones with common kitchen. Dorms near the frat or sorority houses get really noisy when there are parties going on.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school's scholarship and financial aid policy are pretty straight forward. The yearly increase in tuition needs to be taken into account when initial scholarship amounts are awarded as they do not increase with the yearly tuition increase.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining options on campus are limited. I do not agree with the school's policy to require that all on-campus students purchase a meal plan. Students residing in dorms with kitchenettes should have the option to buy a meal plan.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Freshman dorms are older and not that good. The lottery system used to determine placement for upperclassmen dorms is based on GPA. I like that it is based on GPA. The upperclassmen dorms are very nice and have kitchenettes. I think students living in dorms with a kitchenette should not be required to purchase a meal plan.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: You're technically allowed to live off campus but they take away a lot of your financial aid, which makes it not really and option.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a whole street of fast food restaurants, and some local ones.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: The security officers are awful. They're creepy and not helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They ask for documents they know the IRS hasn't processed yet and then get mad when you don't have them, it's just always a headache of explaining that you can't get them something because the IRS has it, and then they'll randomly decide they need more documents

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.
