Taking Hold of Opportunity

Tim Howard

When Tim Howard was a senior at Callaway High School in Jackson and looking at colleges, he had his sights set on California. His parents, however, had a different school in mind. Today, 28 years after graduating from Millsaps College and being the first African American initiated into the college's Phi Beta Kappa chapter (begun in 1989 and the first in Mississippi), Howard is glad he listened to his parents. Read Tim's story.

Across the street and around the globe, Millsaps College students bring energy and purpose to their learning.

Millsaps balances structure and freedom. Through broad exploration of the humanities, sciences, social sciences, and business, students pursue individualized academic programs, gaining exposure to new disciplines, new points of view, and new possibilities. While building a solid base of knowledge in one of our many majors, students learn to integrate ideas across disciplines.

These abilities distinguish our graduates, allowing them to succeed in any context—and to be nimble and flexible as contexts inevitably change.

At Millsaps, choose your own path.
