Both the education and political science departments will host coffee hours from 10 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, providing the opportunity for alumni to reminisce, reconnect, and learn about current students and department activities.


5. Support Your Alma Mater

Show the Millsaps student body what alumni support looks like. Stop by the Plaza Ya Ya and meet the best and brightest. Taste your way through old New Orleans while capturing some game day memories at the pop-up photo booth. On your way to the Major Tailgates, stop by the Center for Career Education tent and sign up to volunteer to be a student mentor.
