Overall, this university is great and has become my home in less than a year. This university has many opportunities for academics as well as social and extracurricular activities and community service. This university means the world to me and I am extremely proud to be a part of the Long Blue Line here at the Mississippi University for Women.
It is a small campus. The class sizes are relatively small with the exception of the science classes. The wifi on campus is awful, as well as some of the good in the cafeteria. Besides the cafeteria, the only on-campus option is Subway. The dorms are ok, but they could be better.
Great School and atmosphere. People Are very friendly and staff is welcoming. The academics are great. The number one school in the state. The professors are always there to help and they even have assistants to help you when you need it. They have great group organizations and lots of campus involvement opportunities.
MUW is a great school, but there are improvements that can be made. To begin, parking at the school is moderate, however, it is primarily parallel parking. For many students who do not feel comfortable parallel parking, it is inconvenient. Next, the food in the school's cafeteria always seems to be left over. Change in the school's lunch opportunities is needed. Despite these issues, the W provides students with quality education at an affordable price.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Mississippi University for Women is 98%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
The advice that I would give myself would be to complete more schoalrship applications. Now that I know what to do, It's too late. I wish I was able to talk to myself. Things would have been totally different.
My classmates are very friendly and accepting of everyone. Most everyone in my classes are willing to offer any help they can.
My school is best known for good education. Every one that comes to this school is always able to get a job afterward. The education that is receved from the school is efficient and helpful. There is always a job opening for a person graduating from my school.
That most activities are at night, so I have to commute about 30 minutes to be able to participate.
My school is very challenging, and it is rated number one in Mississippi for having the best Nursing (RN, ASN, BSN) program.
The people here at Mississippi University for Women are what make the school so remarkable. I came in as a upset and confused sophomore who had taken 19 hours at a program at another college only to find out those hours would not transfer to MUW. The administrators were so understanding and helped me get back on track to pursing my degree.
MUW is a great school, especially for nursing and teaching majors. I really enjoy my teachers and classes.
Mostly about my GPA. I also will rub in a bit about the knowledge I've gained from the school. For example, I'll show off about things I remember from my Human Physiology class.
I do not like the fact that the schools cafeteria is lacking in the amount of options I hear my friends at other bigger colleges telling me thir cafeteria does have. I also wish we had more sports types of events on campus. There are no school sports teams and the recreational center does not always have things that I enjoy to do. They also plan their events at times that don't work into my schedule which means I don't get to attend some of the few events taht they do have on campus.
I shouldn't have, which is why I am switching to a new school in the fall. The communications department is weak, despite a tradition for a quality newspaper at the school. The school is low on the state's totem poll, so if your department requires funding and is not one of the big three, stay away. People who want a school with a lot of students or a "dressed up" campus should not come here. Women who are not interested in joining social clubs should stay away. Lastly, it rains a lot in Columbus.
I wish I had known better than to take things too seriously. Students tend to sacrifice too much of their precious time to worrying about things beyond their control. Relax and make time to unwind because, even though you want to do your best, it's more important to not drive yourself insane with trying to figure out life all at once.
It feels like a community not a school. You can't walk down the street without seeing someone you know. It's funny because I went to school in the fall afraid I wouldn't make new friends, and I left in the summer with a whole new family. That campus is home to me now, and I am actually homesick for the place I didn't want to go to. The W puts a spell on anyone who gives it a chance.
