What is your overall opinion of this school?

Millsaps College is a challenging school academically. If one is looking to grow intellectually, Millsaps is the perfect school for this especially if you are from Mississippi. The professors are all experts in their field and care about their students. Class discussions are always intriguing relating the teaching to real experiences. The discussions are a safe place where students are willing to express their ideas and beliefs without persecution. I am a current senior and have attended Millsaps College for four years and have been able to find myself without all the external social pressures. Many times, students cannot be who they want to be due to fear of rejection from their friends and family but Millsaps is an inclusive place where one would be accepted always. However, the cost of attending Millsaps is extremely high. With the cost being as high as it is, I would have liked to have better food and a nicer city. The Millsaps cafeteria and on-campus options are a failure to the students. The students loathe the options but are forced to buy a meal plan if they stay on campus. The food, sounding only good in the name, is despicable in taste especially for four years. Unlike other colleges, you cannot use the money on your meal plan towards local businesses or restaurants but only at Millsaps. The local restaurants close to Millsaps have few healthy affordable options. There are many fast-food chains where students end up eating due to their proximity. Healthy affordable options can be found in different cities via a car. Students choose either of these off-campus options over the school’s cafeteria rendering the meal plan and the money spent on it a waste. The scenery on campus is beautiful having fresh cut grass and many walkways illuminated by flowers. Unfortunately, as soon as one takes a step off of campus, it is a whole new world with poverty to your left, affluence to your right, and they are connected by pot-holed filled roads that stretch across the entire city. Millsaps has its problems, especially the cost of tuition, but if one can get past this biggest hurdle, they will find an inclusive college where they can grow intellectually, be challenged academically, and feel embraced fully by all students and professors. They will have the means to shed all their inhibitions and be the person they want to be without the fear of persecution. Millsaps offers a safe place for everyone and it is not hard to find it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school. The location is not too far from home, and it is in the heart of Mississippi. The student teacher ratio is great, I feel that I can get a better one-on-one experience with my professors if I would need the help. The sports programs here are very good also. The coaches take their time with each team and make sure that their athletes are always well prepared and ready to compete.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Millsaps college is academically challenging private school. The small class time allows each student to work the professors. The professors are well educated in their subjects and challenges the students. The professors are also always willing to help students and always available to the students through email and office hours. Millsaps tends to favor STEM and businesses majors over the humanities. However the humanity professors work hard to keep the majors fun and alive. The on campus living and food needs great improvement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Even as a freshman, I can say with confidence that Millsaps is easily the best school I've ever attended. Not only are the classes challenging and engaging, but the amount of support and opportunities offered are unlike anything I've ever experienced. The professors are passionate about the topics and ideas they teach, the students are highly involved, creative and bright, and the atmosphere on campus is very welcoming and pleasant.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Millsaps College is a good university. After some thought, I wanted to revise my review. The academic environment is great, and I've learned how to write better thanks to some guidance and our Writing Center. However, as a digital art major, I never have time to draw, and I feel the teachers don't give us creative freedom. The Bacot residence house has reportedly not changed since the 70's. The bathrooms in the Academic Complex and Library are very neglected. In addition, the library only has non-fiction books...nothing for leisure. I'm pretty sure that's why no one really checks out anything.... The scholarships are not enough, even with the presidential + full pell grant, I have to pay $1,335.75/month + $37.25/fee per payment. That's all I've got right now.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Due to the fact Millsaps is at the heart of Jackson, Mississippi, this school is wonderful for many different majors. Each student will have the opportunity to become involved with the campus or the community. While Millsaps is difficult academically, professors are usually very helpful and genuinely care about your well-being.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Millsaps College is an amazing school. Being there has challenged me and expanded me in ways that I never thought possible. I was not aware of how challenging the coursework would be when I applied, but I have found it to be a healthy challenge. Millsaps College has challenged me to confront my views, to talk about my experiences, and to accept others. Millsaps College cares about more than the coursework, they care about making capable people. Professors work to teach students not what to think, but how to think. They teach students the importance of forming our own opinions. The professors and other staff care about the student's well-being not just their academic performance. Millsaps College is a small, private college in Mississippi but it is not anything that you would expect.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't worry about what everyone else thinks of you. In high school although I proformed rather well academically, earning honors every quarter and making it into the national honor society whilst taking all accelerated and AP courses, I didn't allow myself to revel in those accomplishments. They didn't feel like enough- I was so worried about whatever one else thought of how I looked, how I dressed, how I spoke that I didn't appreciate the fact that was a gifted student. I would tell myself that my personal accomplishments, accomplishments I worked very hard for, weren't enough. If I could go back to my first day of my senior year I would urge myself to enjoy it. Senior year is the culmination of twelve years of grade school and it shows you the direct results of all your hard work (end of the year honors, college acceptances, getting to look over letters of recommendation) and it's a very important and exciting time in an individual's life and I didn't allow myself to revel in the experience.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I think my school is best known for a couple of things. We are known for being one of the best liberal arts colleges in the south, and that title really gets reflected in the atmosphere of the campus in a good way. The students attending my college are all very open-minded. We are also known for being a very small school. I personally don't mind the size of the school, it makes everyone closer, but if you don't like being around the same people most of the time then it could be a problem.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would definitely just tell myself not to freak out as much about every little thing. Sure the transition to college is immensly stressful, but there will always be people there to help you along the way. Also, don't convince yourself that you're the only one who doesn't know what's going on during the first couple of days of college. Chances are most people are just as clueless as you and don't already have friends on campus, some people just do a better job of hiding it than others. Lastly, I would tell myself to not be afraid of a little change. Whether you like it or not, college is going to be a lot different than high school so there's no use fighting the change. Instead, embrace it. Go with the flow, talk to lots of different people, join a lot of clubs (you can always quit them later if you don't end up enjoying them), and get to know your professors as much as you can!! This will help you a whole lot in the long run.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would've known how vital scholarships actually are. I thought I would be fine with just good grades from high school, but the costs of college keep adding up and pretty soon you'll realize that you should've spent the summer before college applying for a bunch of random scholarships. Even if you think you won't win, apply to the scholarship! You don't have anything to lose, but you have the possibility to gain something.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I were allowed to give myself advice on how to make the transition to college, I would definitely tell myself very helpful tips about how the educational system is completely different to the reguar high schools. First off, the classes may be either much longer or much shorter but the work will always be more difficult. Studying and taking in as much as you can is the key to college because of the classes expecting so much out of you. It's pretty simple to keep a good GPA as long as you do your work. Being an average student will actually keep a 3.0 if all goes well. Choosing the right classes is also an important factor because some may waste their time with classes that are not necessary for their majors. Try to always have atleast one person that you can talk to in each class so that you can have someone to help you in case you do not understand something. Overall, the best decision you can make is to simply take all of the classes very seriously and never let your grade drop so that you can achieve some thing great in life.
