Rust College is academically challenging even in the summer session and I like that. The teachers/professors are more than competent and possess extensive backgrounds and training in their various disciplines. They seem to do the best they can to make the subject matter relative and interesting. That is appreciated. This is my first term at Rust and I am impressed.
Tips for prospective students
Take advantage of the opportunity to attend a small college like Rust. Here you are sure to get the personalized, professional instruction that is necessary for you to be the best that you can be.
Academic Rigor
Again, Rust is challenging academically. The teaching staff of this institution average PH.D. level and with many years of experience in their field and in the teaching profession.
Dorm Life
Can't vouch for dorm life as I live off campus but that may change in the Fall.
Food and Dining
Excellent, more than adequate dining facilities. When I have the privilege to eat in the cafeteria they always have more than enough and a divers selection. The cost is reasonable for off-campus students free to on-campus students or included in their housing package.
What to do for fun
Holly Springs, MS is a small town with plenty of opportunities to get busy. Memphis, TN is approximately 30 minutes west. Swimming, fishing, Stock car racing, and more.
Bang for the buck
Tuition is affordable. According to the US News, Rust College is one of the 10 least expensive colleges in the United States.

Rust College was founded by the United Methodist Church, so there is a Christian emphasis, with various religious life nearby.
Great for these types of students
I encourage potential minority students to research the history of Rust College and hopefully this will influence your decision to attend a very progressive school of higher learning. If you are of African-American descent you will find acceptance and pre and post bellum sights and museums celebrating Civil Rights achievements and civic contributions made by distinguished African Americans.
Clubs and Activities
All kinds.
Greek Life
Yes, even though Rust College is a Historically Black College, in Northern Mississippi, we have students and teachers of various ethnic backgrounds. Come check us out!
Campus Safety
A full time Security Staff (armed and unarmed) is on and off campus in cooperation with local Sheriff and Holly Springs Police. Plain clothes and uniform for your protection.
