Major TRASFERmations (for transfer students) - 6/14/2013
With a population under 500,000, Jackson is small enough to feel like a close-knit community, but big enough to host abundant choices in entertainment, dining, shopping, and more.
Just outside the campus of Millsaps, there's plenty to see and do in Jackson, whether you choose the creative Fondren business and entertainment district to the north, the resurgent Midtown community to the west, the charming, historic Belhaven neighborhood to the east, or the city's vibrant downtown south of campus.
"Jackson has been integral to my learning experience at Millsaps," said senior Allie Jordan. "The greater Jackson community has been a main element to several of my classes, such as the Midtown area neighboring Millsaps. Jackson has provided me with excellent entertainment as well as ways for me to grow as an academic."
Millsaps is currently accepting applications for freshmen, transfer, and international students.
