Millsaps rated among best in U.S.
JACKSON — Millsaps College is one of the country’s best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review’s 2010 edition of the popular guidebook, “The Best 371 Colleges.”
“It is always satisfying when affirming things are said about Millsaps College,” said David Davis, interim vice president of academic affairs and dean of the college. “Millsaps has always had a student-focused atmosphere, welcoming all types of people, and to be named repeatedly to the ‘Best’ list confirms the college’s mission of creating well-rounded students who become compassionate leaders.”
In its two-page profile on Millsaps College, The Princeton Review praises the school for its “rigorous undergraduate education,” “highly student-oriented atmosphere” and “down-to-earth and friendly, administrators, faculty and staff.”
The ranking lists in the 2010 edition of “The Best 371 Colleges” are entirely based on the Princeton Review’s survey of 122,000 students attending the colleges in the book. The 80-question survey asks students to rate their schools on several topics and report on their campus experiences at them. Topics range from student assessments of their professors, administrators, financial aid and campus food.
