Mississippi College is unique in a lot of ways.
An attractive aspect of MC is the way it encourages student community. One the best ways to be involved on campus is with Mississippi College’s women’s organizations. We lovingly refer to them as Tribes.
So if you’re a girl, listen up!
MC has four social tribes named after different Choctaw reserves and dialects: Kissimee, Swannanoa, Laguna, and Nenamoosha. These four tribes provide students with opportunities to serve and build great friendships during their time at MC.
Each women’s tribe is represented by a different color, mascot, Bible verse, and motto.
Formals and Informals:
Officers of each tribe plan informals around the jackson area, and formals in fun cities like New Orleans, Memphis, and Birmingham!
You and your girlfriends invite 4-5 of your “crushes” or just cool guy friends. Two tribes partener and invite every sinlge guy that girls can think of! It is a blast!
Rush season means pledges from each tribe compete in a skit and dance competition on homecoming weekend!
Either our men’s clubs and tribes, or just two tribes will get together for fun events.
Some students call Derby Day their favorite day of the entire year!
Tribes and clubs compete in Relay races, tug-of-war, food-eating contests, and an egg toss!
Some of these events also include the men’s clubs on campus, but we’ll save that for another day!
