Millsaps Students Say...

“Students at Millsaps think about their classwork first and foremost. After that, we think about hanging out with friends and having fun.” The campus is “so beautiful and filled with cozy spots that many students spend a lot of their time outside.” “While most schools have ‘the quad’ where students ...

Description
Although all Millsaps students are invited and encouraged to be part of all programs and organizations, Millsaps has developed various services and programs that offer specific support to its minority students. Millsaps' MultiCultural Director advises students and develops and supports minority programs on campus. Among these are "Best Start," an orientation program geared towards freshman, and the "MCA Diversity Group", which offers discussion sessions on societal issues for the campus community regarding diversity. "Passages, Poetry and Pastries" (PPP) is another MCA program created to inform and broaden the lives of our community about issues on diversity. PPP is a monthly theme-based program created to include students, faculty and staff and promotes the appreciation of all cultural perspectives through educational and social interaction. Additionally, there are several on-campus organizations and programs that offer peer support and help students and others recognize that belonging to a national or ethnic group does not necessarily imply unanimity to a prescribed set of beliefs or interests among its members. A significant factor in the richness of the Millsaps campus life is the cooperation between racial and ethnic groups and the subsequent awareness of the wider population. The Black Student Association, Millsaps Masala, and the Jewish Cultural Organization are other key groups that all work to serve this important function at Millsaps College.

Keck Center for Instrumental and Biochemical Comparative Archaeology is the only undergraduate facility of its kind in the world. The new multi-disciplinary research laboratory provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to explore complex archeological questions using advanced bioanalytical and biochemical techniques. 4-6 Keck Fellows assist each year in gathering the artifacts studied in the lab from the College’s archaeological field programs in Yucatán, Mexico, and northern Albania. The lab houses an inductively-coupled plasma spectrometer with laser ablation, a gas-chromotography spectrometer, a liquid-chromotography spectrometer, and a portable x-ray fluorescence spectrometer. In addition, the college’s other labs include a unique array of spectrometers for measuring atomic absorption, infrared transitional modes, nuclear magnetic resonance, and other forms of energy; high performance chromatographs for separation and identification of compounds; electrophoresis instruments for analyzing biomolecules and other biological materials; and an inert atmosphere reaction chamber. Other facilities include a state-of-the-art molecular biology/functional genomics research laboratory; a fluorescence microscopy suite and imaging facility; a GIS workstation with Rockware and Arcview 9.1 GIS Software; a specially-designed automated 24-hour food monitoring system for rats; a microsurgical lab for animal surgeries; an on-campus hydrogeologic monitoring station to measure the water table and water levels in four on-campus wells; and a computational modeling lab for math, chemistry and physics students which provides numerical and graphical solutions in three dimensions. The College Sorbent and Environmental Laboratory provides undergraduates with opportunities for oil spill and stormwater remediation research.
