Millsaps is a terrific small school. The environment is very welcoming, and you will quickly learn to meet many people on campus and have great academic relationships with professors. The work is tough, especially when you take on many activities (as many students do), but it is so worth the experience. There are also many opportunities that the school provides to advance you into your chosen field and to succeed after college. Overall, it is a fantastic small liberal arts college!
Review Millsaps College
Millsaps College has provided me with leadership opportunities, community engagement programs, and academic resources. Through my time at Millsaps, I have gained confidence as I have taken on various leadership roles in student life. Furthermore, the small class sizes allow for one on one interactions and relationships with professors that have afforded me opportunities that only a small college can offer. In regards to its students, Millsaps works to create a diverse environment. As a result, I have had the opportunity to make friends and meet people with different backgrounds which has expanded my world view. Overall, Millsaps has shaped me into the person I am today.
I love Millsaps College. I love the friendships I've made and the experiences I've had during my time so far. My one complaint is that the school overcharges it's students and makes it next to impossible to attend all four years without crippling debt. Tuition rises every year and students are offered no additional scholarships to make up for the increases in tuition and housing. Housing has also risen in the past few years with little to no alterations or restorations. Mold grows in the dorms and the humidity is so great that the walls and floors become slick, making walking around a hazard. Not to mention that the boiler in the Freshmen girl's dorm is 15 years past its expiration date. The administration continues to ignore these problems, hiding behind our wonderful academic programs and inspiring professors/students. If not for this, the campus is amazing.
