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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Jackson has a tremendous amount of excellent restaurants in a variety of styles. In any case, this helps to encourage a lively dating circuit on campus and provides a change of pace for the Greek-centric lifestyle that most Millsaps students live. Surprisingly, however, students learn to mostly avoid the downtown area, because there are only a few good places to eat there. A car, therefore, is almost essential for reaching good off-campus dining locations.

Within a few minutes' drive, Greek, Japanese, Chinese, and Mexican places are at the fingertips of any hungry student. They are usually affordable, and their menus are easy to order from, so the restaurant scene is ideal for dates. On the other hand, more traditional selections are left in the hands of some fairly uninspired restauranteurs. Few of the pizza or burrito places are above average; though, naturally, they're cheaper, so a couple of new places will surface every year or two.
