Mississippi University for Women Reviews

The Mississippi University for Women is a good store. When you are a freshman, they make you feel like your family when you first enter the gates. They are respectful, kind and helpful. They have a beautiful heart. I don’t believe theirs one thing I would change about my school, because it is prefect the way it is now. Although they don’t have many sports we still have many fun activities to participate in, such as: baseball, tennis, swimming team, softball and soccer. This is my home away from home I really enough it up here. Coming to the W was a very good choice for me, I feel like i’m at home with another side of the family! I love it up here and I believe anyone would!

I love how they make me feel like family, although they are not your real family. My adviser feels like a mom to me. She makes sure I'm on the right track with classes, teachers and grades. When you are struggling in a subject, the teachers, counselors, and your peer will help you. The campus is very peaceful and beautiful. Everyone basically stays to themselves, and mind to their own needs unless someone else needs help. You get to meet a lot of new people who are very different from you, and you can learn so much from them. I love this school!
I love the way that the professors are so helpful and inviting. I love how they take out the time to really break material down and I love the flexibility of the school. The classrooms are not big at all...so the professor has time to teach individually when necessary. I have really learned so much since I've been attending the W! Most importantly I just got accepted into the ASN RN program! I am so thrilled and excited!
