Drugs are definitely there for people that are interested, but they don't dominate the social scene.

There is not always much exciting things offered at night. The school does a great job at offering day time activities. Off campus places are not open to many people and so it is difficult to find a convenient off campus location.

The academics at Millsaps are what make this a fantastic institution. Dedicated, experienced, and well connected teachers help create and environment where students are pushed to think.

Millsaps provides MANY scholarships to help you with your undergraduate education.

Drugs are not a problem at Millsaps, however, they are not hard to come by if one feels the need to experiment.

One of the bright spots of this school is it's lax drinking policy. Opaque cup is all you need.

Top 100 school, great liberal arts college. Most professors have a PhD.

Only 2 opions to choose from, and it gets old after a while.

Most students that come to Millsaps generally play a sport. Not everyone does but a very high percentage play at least one sport. The athletics here is amazing. There is a good gym and a hangar dome where basketball and volleyball games are held. Our football field is nicely located besides our cafeteria and gym. Students love to go support our football team and the other sports.

In order to get to good food besides Wendy's which is right beside the campus and McDonald's down the street, you have to drive at least 15 minutes to reach more restaurants and good places to eat. There's a good variety of places to eat in the more central part of Jackson and Pearl which is 15 minutes away. The food cost is just like regular pricing. Millsaps doesn't get student discounts which sucks.

The process of acing your freshmen year is to not party too much. You have to make sure to keep your priorities straight. Coming straight from high school you have expectations of football games, rush week, and parties. In my first semester, I realized how your social life should come second to your studies. If you can handle them both then good, but there are some students who don't realize how they have to buckle down until the end of their first semester, if they make it to the second semester, things get alot easier. In freshmen year, just remember to try to keep your priorities straight. Tips for admission? Have a good ACT/SAT score and write a good essay. Be truthful with whatever you write. It isn't hard to get into Millsaps. And don't pull alot of all-nighters.

You get a little bit of everything, snow, hot, cold etc.

For the most part, the administration isn't very strict.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T19:09:49Z
The professors here are fantastic, engaging educators who want to see their students do well. They will make time to speak with you whenever you need it, and establishing connections with them leads to great internships and even friendships.

Everything is different, honestly. You just have to go to the campus to understand.

There is only one truly hideous building on campus and it's the Academic Complex. Most of the architecture is heavily influenced by colonial works, but this monstrosity is a grey cement block of ugly. However, the huge green Bowl is always lovely and the campus grounds are well kept. The Athletic building is clean and nice, the library is well-stocked and exceedingly helpful, and there's an overall sense of campus togetherness at events.

Bacot, the housing for freshman, is simply awful. It's almost like a rite of passage though, but they're renovating it in a few years.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T19:01:31Z
Not so strict but if you do something utterly ridiculous you have to speak with the Dean, who may kick you out.

Weather can get pretty hot but with the smaller campus size it's not a huge problem walking back and forth from classes. The past month we had a hurricane that took us out of classes for a couple of days.

The houses around the school are nice, however, no one really lives off campus because you lose a large portion of your scholarship if you do move off campus.
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-19T18:22:23Z
They are not strict at all, you can pretty much get away with anything.
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-19T18:20:37Z
Sometimes it's hard to find a spot, but the campus is so small that it's not that big of a deal
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-19T18:19:23Z
They give a lot of great scholarships, which is nice because a lot of people cannot afford it.

Out of Sight Out of Mind – Honor Code is very strict. The first time you get caught, you have to go in front of the Honor Council and you get a zero for the assignment. Next time is suspension, and third time is expulsion. They catch you for cheating, plagiarism, stealing, lying to a teacher. And there's no excuses. Everything else is lenient, though. You can drink in the dorms as long as the bottles stay out of sight and the alcohol is in an opaque cup. You get at least three absences in each class, sometimes six. There's no curfew, no check on visitors. You can do pretty much anything. Except cheat on a test.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
