My overall experience has been uniquely positive. As a Christian school, there are frequent opportunities to form bonds with fellow classmates and faculty members. My favorite experiences have revolved around getting connected with my professors and advisors. Mississippi College is unique in several aspects; not only do they have special programs for everything ranging from Premedical Biology to Spanish and business programs, but they also emphasize community, relationships with fellow students, and being engaged with the world. If I had to choose again, I strongly believe that I would make the same choice. Though I had to move hours away from my own home, I never regretted it. I have formed relationships, balanced school and work, built friendships that I hope will last a lifetime, and furthered my education in ways that I strongly believe I will be able to utilize in the future.

The atmosphere on campus is widely known as friendly and jovial. The dorms, while typically filled to the brim, are always a nice place to be. However, Mississippi College has no form of married on campus housing, and if you move off campus, your scholarships are reduced by fifty percent. The cost sometimes seems ridiculous for the small room received, but no additional costs are charged to your student account for a meal plan. The amenities are not spectacular. Most dorms have small rooms, communal bathrooms, and old heating/air systems. However, the housing process is very easy to register for, and the RA's always act as mentors.

The professors and staff at Mississippi College are truly what makes this school a place worth coming to. The quality of the academics is not only top notch and taught by the best professors with the most experience, but it is also designed with your success in mind. The professors have a desire not just to teach their material, but they truly want their students to know and understand the material. Class sizes aren't huge; typically about 30-50 people. Science labs are always limited to about 20 students so the lab instructors have the most individual time teaching with each student.
