Parents and Family

One of the best indicators of success for any student is family involvement. So MC works hard to build connections, encourage engagement and assist parents and families with questions and concerns.

Family Matters

The faculty and staff of Mississippi College consider it a privilege to have been chosen to be part of your changing family dynamic and are excited to support families launching students into adulthood.

Students will be empowered across the campus—in classrooms, in dorms, and on stages and fields—to make decisions and navigate this new world.  As the students embrace their autonomy, you too will begin to embrace the freedom found in a new stage of parenting.

Welcome to the Choctaw Family

We look forward to having you on campus throughout the year, connecting you to new families and introducing you (in person and virtually) to faculty and staff dedicated to your student’s successful transition into a career.
