Spring Preview Day at Mississippi College Set for March 22
February 25, 2014
Hundreds of prospective Mississippi College students are invited to the Clinton campus to attend classes, learn about scholarships and root for the MC Choctaws at a baseball doubleheader.
It’s all part of the university’s jam-packed 2014 Spring Preview Day to help future students and family members become familiar with the MC experience. The date is March 22.
The event begins with an 8 a.m. check-in that Saturday morning at Nelson Hall followed by a welcome from President Lee Royce, Vice President for Enrollment Services Jim Turcotte, and admissions director Kyle Brantley.
Assistant director of admissions Michael Wright and Mississippi College junior Daniel Lang, a standout soccer player from Jackson, will join the lineup of speakers.
Starting at 10 a.m., students will grab seats at a class of their choice. Meanwhile, parents are invited to a series of meetings to ask questions about financial aid, scholarships, student life, campus ministries, residence halls, NCAA Division II athletics and much more.
At 11 a.m., students will tour the 22,000-square-foot medical sciences building along College Street. Opened in 2013, the structure includes cadaver and histology labs, modern lecture halls and the latest research facilities.
Visitors can find out about student organizations and academic programs and meet with professors at 11 a.m. in Alumni Gym. That’s followed by an 11:30 a.m. lunch on the Quad and tours of the Clinton campus.
Other events are optional for university guests. That includes the MC Choctaws doubleheader with American Southwest Conference foe LeTourneau starting at noon at Frierson Field.
Students interested in joining Mississippi College’s equestrian, bass fishing and clay shooting teams are invited to a 1 p.m. open house at Providence Hill Farm. Located 15 minutes from the Clinton campus, the 2,000-acre farm serves as the headquarters for the three squads.
Spring Fever Week is launched at Mississippi College on March 22. Prospective students get the chance to see the university’s clubs and tribes compete starting at 2 p.m. on the Quad.
At a cost of $10 per person, hungry visitors can join the feast at the crawfish boil on the historic Brick Streets in downtown Clinton. The event begins at 5 p.m.
There are other important dates for future MC students to circle on the calendar. The Christian university’s early bird orientation is scheduled for April 15.
Enrolling 5,030 students, Baptist-affiliated Mississippi College was listed among the South’s 27 best regional universities in Fall 2013 by “U.S. News & World Report.”
