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.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I have never been to a party on campus so I do not really know what it looks like. But almost all students go to at least one party during their years in Millsaps and parties in the frat houses are probably the most popular. However, it gets too crazy and loud.

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

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are very few options, Ruebens has weird hours and isn't that good, and if you want to go to Kava you have to spend dinning dollars. We need another swipe lunch place, especially because the caf is often to crowded to eat in

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: A lot of the dorms are falling apart and theres mold in the freshman dorm.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We have been able to take advantage of all aspects of life in Jackson!

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: easy to apply and receive

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Whenever the Greeks throw a party.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Some people need a lot some don't. Some will be paying back student loans, some won't.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is great. For some people, it makes the experience at Millsaps! It's a very low key version of Greek at state schools.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on which dormitory you live in. Some are really great and then there's's ok though

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Jackson isn't bad but it's not great either. Students usually go to surrounding states to have an awesome time. I'm usually on campus most of the time unless it's for shopping or going out for food. Off campus nightlife is pretty mediocre to me coming from New Orleans but hanging with friends on campus or at the frat houses is pretty decent.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus isn't strict on much but the Honor Code, drugs and sometimes alcohol if you're underage. Anything else is lenient.

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.
