Conferences featuring authors like Natasha Trethewey, concerts and plays (spectating or performing), sorority and fraternity events, athletics, intramurals, working out in the fitness center, getting experience at on- and off-campus jobs, and over 80 clubs and organizations. It's just amazing a 100-acre campus can fit it all in.
Home to five museums, ten historic sites and three parks, downtown Jackson is Mississippi's center for culture and entertainment. The funky Fondren Arts District, less than five minutes from campus, features art galleries, local boutiques, a bakery, two coffee shops, and some of the best restaurants in town. Zippity Doo Dah Weekend, Mal's St. Paddy's Parade, Celtic Fest, Crossroads Film Festival and the International Ballet Competition are just a few of the cultural, entertainment, and performing arts options that abound in and around Jackson.
Although they are far from isolated from the life of the city, 86 percent of our students live on campus, and they have created more than 80 clubs and organizations-including 10 national sororities and fraternities and six groups that are solely dedicated to public and community service.
