The W is a school that I would recommend to anyone! In fact, three of my family members currently attend the W. The W's small classroom sizes and beautiful campus is what drew me to this school. I felt at home when I stepped onto campus. The professors are phenomenal and they always respond to emails in a timely manner. I am grateful that I was fortunate enough to attend this school!

The environment is supportive and people are friendly. The university contains great professor and even the administrative department are very helpful. The University gives its best to support its student in every way possible. It provides transportation to the nearby international airport which is helpful for both the domestic and international student. In addition, the university provides temporary accommodation for an international student, which allows the international student to understand the difference between living on campus or off campus.
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!
