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 transferred to MC from a local community college. For me, it was an easy choice. MC has a great reputation academically, the student to faculty ratio is low, and Clinton is a nice town that’s not too big and not too small.

I received both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Social Sciences in Administration of Justice from MC. Dr. Harry Porter, director of the Administration of Justice program, has developed a great program that prepares students for careers in law enforcement, government, the court system and investigations. The curriculum is very thorough. Also, there are outside speakers who contribute to the overall learning experience. And again, the low student to faculty ratio ensures that you get the time with your professor that you need. I highly recommend MC.
Mississippi College is an excellent school. The school is friendly and welcoming. When people arrive to the college, they immediately feel at home. The professors at Mississippi College are personable and look out for the student's best interest. The education system at Mississippi College is wonderful. They set students up for the real world. When graduated, Mississippi College students leave having both a great education and a family.
