Mississippi College is a wonderful private institution nestled just west of Jackson, Mississippi. Located in suburbia, it is a safe and small environment. The professors are all top-notch and very helpful, with great Christian witnesses and attitudes. Professor to student ratio is wonderful, and office hours are helpful if needed. Free tutoring is also available! In the future, I would like to see Mississippi College expand and grow. It is a wonderful school.
Review Mississippi College
I live in MS, am a non-traditional student and looking to change careers by pursuing my Masters degree in a subject that is not associated with my Bachelors degree. I had two colleges within the state on my list. The first one was not willing to work with me AT ALL. They basically wanted me to start over with a Bachelors degree and waste 4 more years of my life. I then visited Mississippi College and it was a completely different experience. The professors were extremely excited about my choice and assured me that my BS degree was not a problem and that they would build my pre-requisites into the Graduate degree. They treated me like a perspective graduate student/adult instead of an incoming 18 year old freshman like the "other guys". I am so pleased and proud to be a Choctaw!
So far, it has been a great experience here! I am part of a club named Kokoa Men's Service Club (there aren't fraternities or sororities on campus, but I feel clubs and tribes are better). It is a hard college with challenging academics. It has an amazing campus along with great people.
