The programs pick the scholarships for you based on your application and interview. You do not apply for any directly.

If you don't pay for parking you have to park very far away. Not good if its raining!

I am very happy with the nursing program that I am currently in. The work load often consumes me, but I think that I am receiving the knowledge and skills I need to be a great nurse. I enjoy learning about the body and disease processes. More importantly, I have a genuine love for people and want to help them in any way possible. If I had the opportunity to choose a major all over again, I would definitely make the same choice. I cannot see myself in any other field. My goal is to be a registered nurse and to possibly advance one day. I have high hopes that it will be fairly easy to find a job in my field. There is always a need for knowledgeable and compassionate health care professionals.

The drug scene at the University of Mississippi Medical Center is not very noticeable. Most of the students strive to be professional and keep their personal lives private. Policies are enforced regularly, and values are stressed. Because UMMC is a professional school, there are very high expectations for the students. Although I'm sure some students drink alcohol, they seem to drink responsibly.

There is off campus available but the crime has really increased in Jackson so I recommend living on the outskirts of the city.

I filled out my FASFA at the last minute and my financial aid was ready to go in a few days. The financial aid counselor was really friendly and helpful. She was able to answer all of my questions.

Guys & Girls:
Most of the students are dressed either in scrubs or business casual attire. Not the campus for street wear.

There are policies and procedures to ensure that everything flows smoothly. I love that. It keeps order and cuts down on chaos.

There is a lot of parking, but only across the street. Also it fills up quick so you might park far from campus.

The shuttles pick up students at many different stops and run continuously throughout the day.
College Senior 2013-04-29T22:50:26Z
The parking is across the street from campus, but there are buses to pick up students at stops which are covered.

You are in the heart of the capital city. There's any restaurant you can think of.

There is one computer lab in the library. They are rather old.

Campus dining is rather nice since they also try to accomodate to those in the actual hospital.

Being on a medical campus, the health and safety is better than you would expect at a general college campus.

I am not 100% sure on the rules and regulations of housing. There is minimal housing available on campus though. There is also housing available off campus and the school has its on search engine for those available.

The effect of weather determines the attendance of students while attending college. One wakes up one morning and its raining, he or she will most likely stay in bed and e-mail their instructor as to their not making it to class. Now if its a vibrant day, the student would most likely get up like a soldier and go to class.

Career Opportunities for the Students – There are quite a few job opportunities and fellowships for the students at UMMC. The academic programs are in full detail and very informative to the fullest. The social scene looks a little segregated into clicks, but that is everywhere. Unique opportunities is to actually have the opportunity to work hand in hand with doctors to learn.

Guys & Girls:
Scrubs or Jeans – All of the students are generous and do not seem to be judgmental for the most part. They all dress in scrubs or business casual. You will see a lot of students wearing jeans and t-shirts as well. Some relationships take place on campus, which is great.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
