In addition, professors will staff booths at Alumni Gym starting at 11:30 a.m. to promote their academic programs at the 191-year-old university.
Prospective students interested in Mississippi College’s equestrian, clay shooting and bass fishing teams are invited to Providence Hill Farm for a reception. The event runs from 12:30 p.m. until 2 p.m.
