I've loved my experience at Mississippi College! The teachers, atmosphere, and student life is great. Location is nice and has a very "small-town" feel to it, however you can drive 30-40 mins any direction and find shopping, activities, etc. The experience here is really what you make of it... you can choose to get involved on campus and be very busy or you can sit back, focus on school and do your own thing. It is pricey, but financial aid is great about working with you and providing assistance. Campus is beautiful and you can always find something fun to do on or off campus at any time.

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.
I am a nursing major. I enjoyed the prerequisite classes I took prior to being accepted into nursing school. However, nursing school is a disappointment. It is very disorganized. Professors read straight out of the book or off of a powerpoint, and they just tell students what to know. You only get eight days of clinical experience during first semester, and all first semester classes are held off campus because the nursing building is too small. I have heard from graduates of MC's nursing school, and they say they are very unprepared for their first job as an RN.
