Casey Holloway goes across the street and inside the operating room with Millsaps alum, Dr. James Rooks, to get a glimpse at her future. Casey: “At the beginning of this shadowing experience, I had no idea the cases I would see or how comfortable I would become with the world of surgery. When Dr. Rooks discussed patients’ ailments with me and talked me through every procedure he did, I felt as though he was really investing in me as a future doctor and potential surgeon.”

DR. JAMES ROOKS (’82) General Surgeon Baptist Medical Center Jackson, Mississippi

Dr. Rooks: “Every Millsaps student that I have worked with over the last several years has been a respectful student who is highly motivated and I would like to add, courageous. Most of these students have probably never seen a surgical procedure, and it is quite unnerving to walk into the operating room environment.” Casey: “I looked forward to every week in the operating room. I loved wearing scrubs, joking with Dr. Rooks, watching operations, assisting the nurses when I could, learning new things about anatomy and physiology, and never knowing what each day would bring.” Casey: “To say that my experiences in medical mentoring made me feel more secure in my career choice is an understatement. I have never been more excited about my future in medicine, nor can I picture myself doing anything else.” Dr. Rooks: “Each Millsaps student that I have mentored has offered something in return. All of them, as far as I can remember, have gone on to medical school.” Casey: “At this point in my life, I do not know what kind of doctor I will be, but I know I am completely enamored with surgery right now. . . . I was accepted to the Louisiana State University medical schools in New Orleans and Shreveport.”

Aubin: “We’d start at the crack of dawn, setting out mist nets to catch and identify birds and setting up trail cameras. On my last day there, we captured an image of a female jaguar. I think I stopped breathing.” Evan: “For the past two years, I’ve helped conduct excavations of a Mayan hilltop compound. When we got to the bottom floor, we saw signs that the site had been abandoned quickly. That’s very rare. My research tries to determine the rate of abandonment.” George: “He gave a paper on it at a conference of the Society for American Archaeology. He was the only undergraduate there.” Aubin: “You get these opportunities . . . Another student and I collected medicinal herbs and plants with a Mayan guide for an herbarium in Yucatán’s capital. And before I went to Yucatán, I did a field course on the Galápagos Islands. It was like living in a nature documentary.” Evan: “Right now I’m choosing between two graduate programs in archaeology; both are offering full scholarships. They see the work I’ve done, and they know what it means.” Aubin: “You can’t learn everything in the classroom. You have to go out and do it.”

Five deep thoughts from a Fulbright Scholar who knows her business. “In the last two years I’ve been to Mexico four times—for classes, on a grant from Millsaps, on an internship. It’s the kind of experience that brings together everything I’ve done at Millsaps.” “I was interning with a management team at a factory in Merida, working on new projects practically every day. The owner—who’s actually a professor at a university in Texas— would say, ‘This is what we’re doing tomorrow, go home and research it.’ And I realized I wasn’t just helpful—I was necessary. That’s when I knew I was in the right place.” “When you put a business school in a liberal arts college, you have to focus on the bigger picture. How does your work fit into a business—and a society? And there’s so much emphasis on problem-solving. If you’re not creative, how will you come up with a new solution?” “Professors here know what they’re talking about. Harvey Fiser was a practicing attorney for years; Kim Burke audited oil and gas companies. They teach from experience.” “Everything you learn builds a better you.”

Students talk about what goes into earning the College a place on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, as well as the personal growth they get back. Michala: “Service work at Millsaps has become a part of my everyday life instead of being an occasional activity, which has helped me become a more educated person about the world developing around me.” Paul: “The majority of the work I did this year was tutoring at Project Innovation, an after-school program. It was rewarding to be able to help kids learn and to learn from them.” Elizabeth: “Community service has helped me grow as a person. I've learned that I am not just a Millsaps student, not just one person, but that I am part of a vibrant, active community. The kids at Brown Elementary can brighten my whole day!” Paul: “Helping people, contributing to something bigger than me, trying to do what I can to make the world just a little bit better — I enjoy everything about it.” Michala: “Working with Wellspring and 1 Campus 1 Community I have continued to learn there is more to community service than trying to fulfill a good deed. I have just as much to teach others as I do to learn from them. Realizing this has guided me towards discovering an unspoken sense of respect that develops between the giver and receiver of service that creates a world of communication otherwise inaccessible by the hectic reality that is everyday life.”

T H E FA I R LY COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO

M I L L SA P S (If you wanted the most comprehensive guide to Millsaps, you’d come visit us. Not a bad idea!)


ACADEMICS THE COLLEGE Millsaps is one of only a handful of top tier colleges in the country with the rare combination of a Phi Beta Kappa liberal arts college and a nationally accredited business school. With our unique location in the political, business and cultural capital of Mississippi, our students have big-city advantages in a place that is student-friendly and full of opportunities.

THE CORE Ten classes, lots of options, full coverage of the human experience. Core 1 is an intensive seminar in critical thinking, focusing on a range of specialized topics (the concept of beauty, urban living, digital experience). The classes in Core 2-5 explore the humanities in one of two ways: Heritage, an intensive team-taught survey of world culture and history; or

IDST, an interdisciplinary examination of single topics (“Immigrant Experiences in the United States”; “This Digital Life: What's the News?”) in great depth. Core 6-9 take you through the social sciences, the physical sciences, math, and economics. Core 10 is a reflective, research-driven capstone experience.

COMPS We’re one of a select few colleges in the country that requires every senior to take comprehensive written and oral exams in their major field. Isn’t this the kind of thing you’d usually do in a master’s or Ph.D. program? It is. (Not coincidentally, about 70% of our alumni eventually get a graduate or professional degree.) We just think it’s the right thing to do: take stock of everything you’ve learned, analyze it, and talk about it intelligently.


THE WRITING PROGRAM Home to our nationally

MAJORS A lot of students double major; and a lot

recognized Writing Across the Curriculum initiative (i.e. writing not just in English classes but across all disciplines) and our student-staffed Writing Center. The Writing Program also oversees one of our graduation requirements: a portfolio of your written work.

of students put together major/minor combinations (geology and philosophy, say) that would seem odd anywhere else, but make complete sense at Millsaps. Good news, parents: students can do all of this AND graduate in four years.

PHI BETA KAPPA The most prestigious academic honor society in America; we have the state’s first chapter. We also have chapters of national honor societies in nearly every field of study, including Beta Gamma Sigma. It’s a very public way of saying that thinking matters, and we honor great thinking.

THE ELSE SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT Yes, a nationally known AACSB-accredited business school in a liberal arts college. It’s intentionally interdisciplinary, deeply engaged with the local community (through service and internships), and committed to entrepreneurial thinking and hands-on experience. Every business major takes the Millsaps core and the Else core; seniors take case-based coursework that addresses major issues in the field; the capstone experience is a business simulation. Plus, stick around one more year and you can earn your M.B.A.

FORD TEACHING FELLOWSHIPS A selective intensive mentorship in college-level teaching. Ford Fellows receive funding for travel and research, teaching opportunities, and—crucially—a working relationship with a faculty mentor.

EXPERIENCE THE HONOR CODE At Millsaps, it’s a way of life. It is not simply a set of rules and procedures governing students’ academic conduct, it’s an opportunity to put personal responsibility and integrity into action. The Honor Code creates a spirit of personal honesty and mutual trust within the Millsaps community.

AN INCREASINGLY COMMON STORY Jean Leon Iragena traveled more than 8,000 miles in order to study at Millsaps College starting in 2010 as a Rwanda Presidential Scholar. Now a junior, he heads the Isaro Foundation that focuses on improving literacy in his native country of Rwanda. Jean Leon’s efforts and those of the foundation have resulted in the first electronic library at a school in Rwanda. The donation of 35 Kindles each loaded with 300 books means there are 10,500 books for students to read. The work of Jean Leon and the Isaro Foundation has drawn praise and earned a Rwandan national humanitarian award this year.

STUDY ABROAD We believe that a relevant, meaningful college education is a global education. It’s no accident that half of our students study abroad and about the same percentage of faculty conduct research or lead Millsaps-only courses on nearly every continent; and a growing number of our students are international. One result: in almost

every class, you’ll be working with students or faculty with serious global experience. Another result: you’ll probably be one of those students.

MAKING IT PERSONAL Our study abroad programs aren’t about sightseeing or clubbing. It happens; sometimes we make it happen; but the point of our programs is to study a place by living deeply within it. We establish meaningful ties with the local community, conduct ongoing research, and try to follow the rhythm of the local culture, work alongside local residents, and see their lives clearly.

KAXIL KIUIC BIOCULTURAL RESERVE Four thousand five-hundred acres in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, featuring an off-the-grid research station and ongoing projects in (and across) biology, anthropology, business, you name it. Our students are there year-round, for weeks or months at a time, doing important, innovative fieldwork and research.

RESEARCH We take an entrepreneurial approach to research. If someone—a professor or a student—has a great idea, we jump on it. [With 14 students on average per class

and a 9-to-1 student to faculty ratio, everyone is expected to a) have great ideas and b) jump on them.] Our faculty in the sciences, for example, publish an impressive number of articles in major journals; and an astonishing percentage of those papers are co-authored by students. Being across the street from Mississippi’s academic hospital provides real-world opportunities.

THE MILLSAPS FAITH AND WORK INITIATIVE A Millsaps-only program: an opportunity to explore the meaning of life by exploring the meaning of work. Students enroll in an intensive interdisciplinary course (called, yes, “The Meaning of Work”), take a hand-picked internship with an approved mentor, and meet to reflect and write about their experience. The initiative also offers focused vocational counseling and hosts career exploration events with regional and national firms and nonprofits.


ON CAMPUS SERVICE A huge presence on campus, nearly

ATHLETICS Our NCAA Division III athletic

every student club has a service component. Incoming students can join Challenge, our five-day, service-based orientation program in Jackson, the Mississippi Delta, and our Gulf Coast; or live in Wellspring, a service-focused living and learning community run by their (slightly older) peers. Our student-run Campus Ministry Team organizes service trips and task forces throughout the city. And our 1 Campus, 1 Community program establishes long-term relationships with local organizations to support long-term change.

program features storied rivalries (in football, the Backyard Brawl is played against our crosstown rival); recent championships in football, baseball, and softball, in the tough Southern Athletic Association; and a little trailblazing (our men’s and women’s lacrosse programs are the first in the state). Facilities include the Hangar Dome (1,500 seats); Harper Davis Field (3,000 seats and a Sprinturf surface); and the 63,330-squarefoot Hall Activities Center, featuring a fitness center, a cardiotheater and aerobics room, fitness and weight training equipment, an outdoor pool, and three racquetball/handball courts.

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS We have around

EVENTS Lectures, concerts, gallery openings, film

70. You’ll notice a lot of acronyms in the (abridged!) list below. We don’t call anything by its full name if we can help it. We don’t have time. Black Student Association CALLS (Considering a Life of Leadership and Service) Campus Ministry Team Catholic Student Association EARTH (Environmental Activists Ready To Help) Jewish Culture Organization Millsaps Masala/Diwali Millsaps Quizbowl Team Outdoor Adventure Club Political Science Club SLACKER (Society for Learning All Cosmic Knowledge of Epistemology and Religion) Spanish Club SBA (Student Body Association) Students for "Glocal" Citizenship The Stylus (literary magazine)

screenings, all-campus throwdowns (like the week-long, spring-fever Major Madness)—frankly, we do too much.

THE GREEK SYSTEM We’re proud to have a strong Greek system: about half of our students are members of a fraternity or sorority, and some chapters are more than 100 years old. We’re especially proud that it’s not the standard Greek system. Chapters are campus leaders in service hours; they work together, they borrow from each other; and most of their social events, by custom and by choice, are open to all.

REUBEN’S The secret heart of residential life: a grill, a few rooms, a porch, open till 2 a.m. Burgers, pizzas, wraps, nachos, sweet potato fries, and an alarming caramel-topped thing called The Elvis.

TRADITIONS Such as The M Bench: if you kiss on the old stone bench in the shape of a wavy M, on a full moon, at midnight, you’ll marry. Or Fourth Night, a special celebration to welcome students to the Millsaps community. Or Caf’ sitting, which is less a tradition and more of a sport: sitting in the Caf’ long, long after your meal is done, talking about everything. We’re social creatures.

HISTORICAL NOTE Millsaps was founded in 1890 by Major Reuben Webster Millsaps, who graduated from Harvard Law School and attained the rank of major. Major Millsaps’ founding grant was matched by contributions from Mississippi Methodists. Millsaps College celebrates its connection with the United Methodist Church. At a prominent (yet somehow modest) place on campus, you’ll find a statue of John Wesley, the founder of Methodism. When we say we’re United Methodist connected, we mean we’re proud to hold ourselves to that standard.


J A C K S O N, M S JACKSON is the capital of Mississippi. It’s big enough to be substantial (approximately 500,000 people in the metro area) but small enough that you know your neighbor and can get around easily. Jackson has an excellent art museum, a natural history museum, an opera, an orchestra, and some very fine dining; it also has a great music scene (Hal and Mal’s, F. Jones Corner), plus great ribs, burgers, fried catfish, and other fried things, including fried Twinkies at the annual State Fair. Everyone in Jackson knows Millsaps, and everyone at Millsaps knows Jackson; we’re connected to the city’s (and the state’s) leaders in business, culture, and politics. That’s helpful in a way that most people can easily imagine; what’s exciting is that it’s also helpful in ways you can’t imagine yet.

FONDREN Fondren is a lively neighborhood to the north of Millsaps, within easy walking distance of campus. It’s home to shops, cafés, galleries, restaurants (tapas, sushi, new American), a natural food market, and a lot of lovingly preserved or thoughtfully re-purposed architecture (a yoga studio in a former gas station, a lunch spot in a former dry

cleaners). With so much to offer, it’s a popular evening and weekend destination for Millsaps students.

INTERNSHIPS Millsaps central location in Jackson makes it easily accessible to a variety of internships. Across the street is the massive University of Mississippi Medical Center research hospital. A few blocks south is the capitol building, Supreme Court, federal court and all the state and federal government agencies you’d expect in a capital city. Nearby, in every direction, are law offices, engineering companies, non-profit organizations, hospitals, medical groups and more. Businesses like these provide something very valuable to our students: opportunity. Internships, mentorships and part-time jobs extend the educational offerings our students get on campus. These positions enhance a student’s graduate school application or open up job opportunities after graduation.


Jackson, Mississippi A brief tour

A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS

ROAD TRIPS The lush, lovely Natchez Trace

Keifer’s, just down the street, has quick and tasty Middle Eastern food, with a deck. The Eudora Welty House, in the Belhaven neighborhood just across the street; Welty used to be a regular on our campus, and her biographer is one of our professors. The Rez, a recreation area alongside a huge reservoir just outside of the city. Lefleur’s Bluff State Park camping grounds. The Old Capitol in downtown Jackson, now a surprisingly engaging museum; the handsome restoration was overseen by architect Bob Adams, a Millsaps alumnus.

Parkway runs right through Jackson; so does the historic Mississippi Blues Trail. Mississippi is beautiful all around, really: you’ve got easy access to the beaches of the Gulf Coast, Okatoma River (actually a Class 1 river, great for canoeing and tubing), the legendary bike trails on Longleaf Trace in South Mississippi. Plus, New Orleans is a three-hour drive. Memphis is three hours and change.


AFTER MILLSAPS CAREER CENTER An invaluable resource at every stage of your life at Millsaps. Two offices (one in the Campbell Center, one in the Else School), a professional staff, print and electronic resources, and a long list of career fairs, networking events, and on-campus recruitment sessions. Also: one-on-one counseling, group workshops, and sound advice about graduate school, internships, and employment—not as isolated events, but as part of a comprehensive vision of the life you’re making for yourself.

Fact. 93% of the Class of 2012 reported at graduation that they are prepared for the next step in their careers.

WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THAT DEGREE? The short answer: everything. The long answer is the story of our alumni, who have found meaningful work in every field, in communities around the world. Following are a few recent job placements. Alaska Wildlife Adventures The American Institute for Research BlueCross BlueShield Coca-Cola Enterprises Entergy Ernst & Young FBI Horne LLP KPMG Le Ministére de France March of Dimes Reznick Group SAKS, Inc. Teach for America Trustmark National Bank South Korean Government Wells Fargo Financial


GRADUATE AND PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL About 70% of our alumni eventually pursue a graduate or professional degree. Recent alumni who started a program within a year after graduation went into these fields: arts and humanities (14%), law (13%), business (28%), medicine and health sciences (22%), sciences and engineering (15%), and education, counseling, and theology (8%). Those numbers tell you something about our alumni: they’re focused, they’re qualified, and they’re not easy to categorize. Below are a few recent graduate school placements.
