Framed photographs and testimonies in the... More

Millsaps College is a lovely small campus that offers an excellent education. There are less than 1000 students which means that students know each other well and benefit from small classes. The college also has a very high percentage of students who are gainfully employed within a year of graduation.

Spend a morning or afternoon exploring the lovely shady sidewalks of Millsaps College, located in central Jackson. It's a little known fact that the campus is built on an ancient volcano; the "Bowl" of the campus is the caldera. Take a walk through the modern Academic Complex to get a glimpse of the airport setting in the movie Get on... More

While a small campus with about 900 students, it has a fine academic reputation and should be on the visit list of any high schooler looking for a quality, small college experience in the deep south. It is close to downtown Jackson but had a safe... More

A friend went here back in 1986 so it was treat to stop by and see how much it has changed. You only need a little bit of time to walk through and enjoy this campus.
