With such a small student body, diversity might seem an afterthought. The students here are generally Caucasian and from the upper-middle class. On the other hand, there are signs that minority groups are becoming better represented. An organization called the Multi-Cultural Association engages the many different cultural backgrounds on campus, staging the Multi-Cultural Festival each fall, which features diverse performances from square dancing to rap music to classical piano. The College newspaper, The Purple and White, also gives a voice to individuals on campus. Even if diversity is lacking, minority groups are nevertheless well-acknowledged. Minority organizations are gaining steam, holding forums for the entire community, and promoting the cultural qualities in a positive way.
One of the reasons that Millsaps is attractive to minority students and those from the working-class backgrounds is because of the school’s financial aid packages. The College generously funds non-traditional students, bridging the economic gaps between varied social statuses. As with many universities, however, costs have risen. If these trends continue, it is believed that campus diversity may decline.
