Soon fall will arrive and leaves will change colors and it will be pleasant to take a walk outside, not scorching in the Mississippi heat, once again. With fall, also comes Mississippi College Preview Days!
Coming to a Preview Day at MC will let you walk in the steps of a typical Mississippi College student’s life. You can see what the academic and student life is like here at MC. You’ll be able to explore majors and hear from actual students about their college perspective.
MC’s first Preview Day will be on September 14th, 2013 and later on in the year on November 16th. You can view the full agenda for the September 14th Preview Day here.
On September 14th, you and your family will be able to visit and speak with a lot of different departments on campus.
That Saturday morning, from 11-12:30 p.m., there will be a open house at the Providence Hill Farm. Providence Hill Farm is partnered with Mississippi College and home to our Equestrian, Bass Fishing, and Clay Shooting teams.

Providence Hill is one of the premier hunter/jumper farms in the country and located in Jackson, 15 minutes from campus!

Check in for Preview Day will start at one o’clock and the Welcome Session will kick off at 1:30! You will be able to hear from our President, the Dean of Students, our Admissions team, and MC students themselves!
After this, students will be able to visit actual college classes of their choosing to get a feel of what the college classroom is like! The student to professor ratio here at MC is 16:1, so you can expect small, personal classes. During this time, your parents will be able to choose some different tracks of activities to learn more about MC.
Then you and your parents will be able to hear from the Financial Aid Office, Residence Life & Housing, Student Activities Board, Security, Academic Affairs, and Career Services! A LOT of important departments from Mississippi College that can give you great insight to life here at MC!
From 4:15-5:30 p.m. there will be an ‘Academic Marketplace’ and ‘Student Organizations Marketplace’ where you can learn all about our different academic departments and organizations on campus! This will give you an in depth view of areas of study and how you can get involved at MC.
Also from 4:30-5:45 dinner will be served and you can get a campus tour, before heading to a home MC football game that will kick off at 6 p.m.!
