Spring 2016 Preview Day at Mississippi College Set for March 19
March 8, 2016
Mississippi College leaders are inviting prospective students to tour MC’s cadaver lab, learn about scholarships and cheer the Choctaws in a baseball doubleheader with Delta State.
It’s all part of the Christian university’s 2016 Spring Preview Day on March 19. The free event begins that Saturday at 9 a.m. with check-in at the B.C. Rogers Student Center.
High school students and their parents will be traveling to the Clinton campus from all over the South as well as coming from states like Indiana, Missouri and Washington.
So far, 180 students registered as of early March and more are expected to sign up, says MC admissions director Kyle Brantley.
There will be time to tailgate on the Quad before MC baseball contests on Frierson Field with Christian Brothers beginning at 2 p.m.
Mississippi College visitors will hear remarks from a variety of speakers, including President Lee Royce, history professor Otis Pickett, and Jim Turcotte, vice president for enrollment services and dean of students. MC freshman Kelley Wood will speak to the group from a student’s point of view at Anderson Hall.
Parents won’t be ignored. There are sessions lined up for parents on topics like financial aid and scholarships. MC remains one of the most affordable private universities in the region. Representatives of student organizations will be out in full force on the Quad at noon. Visiting students will also be able to attend classes on the Clinton campus.
In addition, invitations are also going out to prospective students interested in joining MC’s equestrian, bass fishing and clay shooting teams. The headquarters of the Choctaws outdoors squads, Providence Hill Farm is the site of an open house from 2 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. that Saturday.
