I do not attend Millsaps College but I will the fall of 2020. I heard about them because their track and field coach reach out to me and I have been hooked ever since. The coaching staff has kept in touch with me and been there for me if I ever needed to ask questions. My parents and I have heard nothing but excellent things about the academic programs and how in depth the professors will mentor their students. We toured the campus many times and I have met with professors, staff, and students that are extremely friendly and open minded to new things. The students at this college want to learn and want to be the best versions of themselves they can possibly become. Also, the staff went out of their way to show my parents and I around the campus and provide us with information that they had to search to find. I would recommend this college to anyone who wants to physically and mentally challenge themselves to become the next big thing.

Even as a freshman at Millsaps, I can say with confidence that this one of the best schools I have ever been to. The professors are brilliant people who challenge students to think creatively and encourage the inclusion of other perspectives to create the best experience for the community as a whole. The classes are perhaps the most unique I have ever taken, and the curriculum helps students develop skills necessary for any major they wish to pursue. I love this school, and hope that it can only get better from here!
I'm just starting my freshman year and I'm absolutely loving it! I am a basketball player and my teammates and coaches are amazing! Everyone makes me feel like I'm at home. Wouldn't change anything except maybe giving athletic scholarships so you wouldn't have to worry about paying for school to go here, because it's very expensive.
