November 5, 2013

So you want to become a Mississippi College Choctaw?

The best way for hundreds of prospective students and family members to learn what Mississippi College has to offer is by attending the university’s Fall 2013 Preview Day on November 16.

The Saturday event begins with 8 a.m. registration at the B.C. Rogers Student Center followed by several speeches from key university leaders, including President Lee Royce.

Jim Turcotte, vice president for enrollment services and dean of students, Mark Hughes, dean of enrollment services, admissions director Kyle Brantley and assistant director Michael Wright will also deliver remarks at Anderson Hall. Visitors will also get insights from an MC student leader.

Around 10 a.m., high school students and potential college transfers are invited to attend classes to get a better feel for academic life.

Parents won’t be forgotten. They are welcome to attend informative sessions to soak up facts about MC costs, scholarships, financial aid, housing, campus life and academic offerings. In addition, students are invited to tour the cadaver laboratory at the university’s new 22,000-square-foot medical sciences building along College Street.

Visitors never go hungry at Fall Preview Day. At 11:30 a.m., lunch will be served and guests are encouraged to tour the Clinton campus.

Other events on the packed schedule include the MC Choctaws football game with American Southwest Conference powerhouse Mary Hardin-Baylor. The Texas team is presently rated No. 2 in NCAA Division III polls. The kickoff is 1 p.m. at Robinson-Hale Stadium.

Students interested in joining Mississippi College’s equestrian, bass fishing or clay shooting teams are invited to an open house at Providence Hill Farm. Headquarters for the three squads, the fabulous 2,000-acre farm off Carsley Road is a 15-minute drive from the Christian university. The open house lasts from 1 p.m. until 2:30 p.m.

With more than 5,000 students, Mississippi College is rated among the South’s 27 best regional universities by “U.S. News & World Report” in its Fall 2013 college guide.
