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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
