Civitan is a community of men that pursue excellence academically, socially, and
spiritually. We strive to exhibit chivalry towards others while holding ourselves to a
Christ-like standard. We seek to develop the unique strengths of our brothers to grow in servant leadership. We are not perfect men; but in everything we do, we desire to be men that hold each other accountable while continuing to push each other towards
excellence. In the accomplishments of individuals and groups, we lift one another up in celebration. Our goal is to be a club that wants to be better men, better brothers, and better servants to one another, Mississippi College, the Clinton community, and the world.
"The community I have in Civitan has been the backbone of my time at MC. Civitan is about people. People with different strengths and weaknesses and who come from different walks of life. The greatest part of my college experience has been watching these guys come together and see how the Lord uses their different traits to form some of the strongest friendships that I have ever seen. One of the pillars of our club is Service, and you can look at any part of campus and find Civitan present. The daily lives of our members are filled with campus leadership, community service, social events, and athletic programs, all honing their future leadership skills and enriching their college years beyond measure. I can honestly say that Civitan has been my greatest blessing in college because it has surrounded me with a community of guys who serve wholeheartedly and demonstrate the love of Christ."
