Hosting Shakespearean plays, MC Staff Club luncheons, and other events, Jennings Courtyard at Mississippi College is one of the university's icons. It is in the heart of Jennings Hall that opened its doors in 1907 as one of the South's finest college dormitories. Heated with steam with an electric light in every room, Jennings Hall was a comfortable setting for MC men for decades after it opened over a century ago. By 1945, Jennings Hall was remodeled and became a women's dorm. Extensive renovations in 1993-94 helped return its original charm. The building presently provides space for classrooms and offices for modern languages, political science, sociology, English and other programs.

The Latimer House
Purchased by Mississippi College from the Latimer family in 1969, the Latimer House was restored and preserved as a campus guest house and popular spot for alumni receptions. Surrounded by beautiful trees, the residence was first used by President Webb as a residence until 1906 after his home in Clinton burned in December 1894.
The Quad is a hub for outdoor student activities at Mississippi College, including the annual Lighting of the Quad to celebrate the Christmas season. It's the tree-lined place on the Clinton campus where MC students toss frisbees, play fun football games and converge every fall for tailgating feasts. The central point of the 320-acre Clinton campus, the Quad is always busy when students are walking to classes from morning through evening hours. The grass of the central campus quadrangle reaches such prominent buildings as Provine Chapel, Nelson Hall, Lowrey Hall, Chrestman Hall and Alumni Hall.
- Designed for multipurpose use
An inviting spot for Mississippi College students to relax at more than a dozen tables or catch up on their studies, the tree-lined Piazza sits near the Commons and the Jennings Hall Annex. Visitors can't miss its large fountain and a 5,000-pound Zimbabwe granite sphere depicting a gently spinning globe in water. Known as the Kugel, the beautiful globe is the Todd Memorial gift donated by former MC President Howell Todd in honor of his parents. Dedicated in 1998, the 4-foot globe is fitting because Mississippi College is home to 273 international students from 26 nations. Equipped with night lights, the area is a quiet spot to host student activities or wedding receptions near Provine Chapel.
- Designed for multipurpose use including receptions
White-columned Provine Chapel was completed in 1860 and the landmark remains MC's oldest building. What was the chapel didn't serve that purpose for very long. With America embroiled in a bloody Civil War, the stately building was converted into a hospital for the wounded troops of Northern U.S. General Ulysses S. Grant. The first floor, historians believe, was used as a stable for his horses. It later became a church for Clinton area Baptists in addition to serving the MC family. The facility presently houses the university's Department of Christian Studies and Philosophy and classrooms. The building is home to special events including festive concerts by the MC Singers to celebrate Christmas.In addition, the chapel books weddings and is a favorite backdrop for photographers.
