Mississippi College’s Clinton campus will soon be a little larger. MC has entered a contract to purchase the former Clinton Junior High School property fronting Clinton Parkway and College Street in the heart of downtown Clinton.
Purchased for a winning auction bid of $3,500,100, the 17.5-acre property will provide much-needed room for MC to physically expand. With virtually every square inch of the current campus occupied, the university was in pressing need of extra space. MC has hired Richard Dean, an architect and campus planner, to help explore options and determine how to best use the new space.
“Our programs and enrollment are growing and with the purchase of this property, MC has the opportunity to grow physically as well,” says MC President Dr. Lee Royce. “This is a beautiful piece of property, and the location could not be better in terms of proximity to our campus. This is just the right piece of property and it became available at just the right time.”
Satellite Campus Opens in Flowood
Classes at the Flowood Center, MC’s satellite campus in Flowood, Mississippi, will begin August 23. The Flowood Center will host MC’s Accelerated Degree Programs (ADP), replacing satellite campuses in Madison and Brandon. Located at 115 Laurel Park Cove adjacent to the Flowood Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center on Lakeland Drive, the Flowood Center features eight classrooms and will also offer live classes via video and audio. Geared toward working adults, the ADP classes allow students to earn degrees in business administration, accounting, marketing, public relations, and sociology. Courses are offered in eight-week sessions that meet two nights per week. Registration for classes beginning August 23 is August 19.
