Second Fall Preview Day at Mississippi College Set for November 8
Mississippi College’s football game with West Alabama, meetings with key academic leaders, and sessions on financial aid are part of the Fall Preview Day lineup on the Clinton campus November 8.
The event will bring hundreds of prospective students and parents from around the nation to MC for a marathon of informative sessions. It begins with 8 a.m. registration at the B.C. Rogers Student Center.
Visitors will hear from President Lee Royce, Vice President for Enrollment Services & Dean of Students Jim Turcotte and admissions leaders like Kyle Brantley, Michael Wright and Anna Mortimer. A current student and an MC professor will speak, too.
The blitz of messages welcomes the guests beginning at 8:30 a.m. in Anderson Hall.
Students will also get the opportunity to sample Mississippi College classes that Saturday morning.
Parents won’t be ignored. They are invited to attend key sessions on topics like financial aid, and learn about opportunities for students to get involved in area churches and Christian ministries.
Starting at 11 a.m. visiting high school students will meet in Alumni Gym with representatives of every academic department on the Clinton campus.
In addition, they can check out a smorgasbord of student organizations, including civic clubs and social tribes, the Student Government Association, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes, among others.
Lunch on the MC Quad will be served at 11:30 a.m. followed by campus tours.
And there’s more on the agenda. Visitors can tour Mississippi College’s modern Cadaver Lab in the 22,000-square-foot Medical Sciences Building along College Street.
Enrolling more than 5,050 students this fall, Mississippi College is receiving excellent reviews in national publications. “U.S. News & World Report” ranked MC 4th best among the South’s regional universities in the “Great Schools, Great Prices” category in September 2014.
Mississippi College ranked 8th in a survey of America’s 50 most affordable Christian colleges by Christian Universities Online.
The two final Fall Preview Day events are sports-related.
