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.

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.

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!
