  • There are nice dorms on campus and bad dorms. The dorms that are bad are just old which is why they aren't the most appealing. Freshman year you don't have…

  • Dorm life is really fun! And surprisingly chill for a small private college. The bathrooms don't get that disgusting like you might assume they do. Overall, I love the dorm…

  • There are two new dorms at Millsaps, and many rooms dedicated to single rooms. For an older student like myself (23), that's a nice option. The dorms are situated conveniently…

    On campus food isn't completely terrible, but it isn't great either. Honestly, it's probably what students mostly complain about on campus. They are currently working on improving it for the coming years. There are plenty of good, cheap off-campus dining options though that are only 5 minutes away.

    The cafe has great food and the chef makes your food to order. The campus also has a great late night cafe (Reubens).

    I've had a few chances to dine on campus at Millsaps, and my experience has always been good. The selection is great, and the quality and portions served are excellent.

    The cafeteria has a great big range of foods to eat on a daily basis. And the cafeteria staff does a great job in trying new things to keep it new and exciting (sometimes failing, but at least they try!). You tend to get sick of the food but that happens in all places where they have a cafeteria. You have to become creative sometimes if you don't want to eat something you've never eaten before.

    The cafeteria is not great. The food isn't horrible but it is just your standard cafeteria food. Kava house is a good alternative but you can get sick of it fast. Great off campus dining.

    The Caf food does get a little old after awhile. Thankfully you can always go to the grill line and order something if you don't like what the other lines have. There is also Kava, which provides sandwiches and salads. You also get your choice of chips with cookies, fruit, and soup. This is included in the meal plan as well.

    the food at millsaps costs approx. $8.00 a meal, and you get prison-quality food. millsaps buys the lowest grade/quality for all food, and serves (more or less) no variety. it honestly couldn't get much worse.

    There are 4 sororities and 5 fraternities on campus, all with a fairly equal amount of members. Hazing is not allowed and there aren't any rivalries between the fraternities or sororities.

    The fraternities and sororities at Millsaps are very active both on campus and in the community. They are involved with many community and charity events, and they provide a good source of camaraderie and entertainment on campus.

    Greek life here at Millsaps is not like a normal College. Most of all the people in sororities and fraternities are not exclusive to their affiliated group. The independents often hang out at the houses too unlike a lot of state schools. It is just as great to be an independent as it is to be in a sorority or fraternity, there are no biases.

    Greek Life is thriving at Millsaps! There are four sororities and five fraternities. Each fraternity and sorority has a philanthropy they are strongly dedicated to, which means that there are many philanthropic events each school year.

    Greek life is great at Millsaps. The sororities and fraternities are small enough to where you become really close to your fellow members. It's most as competitive or nerve wracking as big state schools

    greek life is literally the only social life on-campus. the school is well over 50% greek, and offers 5 fraternities and 5 sororities to choose from. the parties are pretty boring, and most people just get ridiculously intoxicated every weekend.
