Jackson, Mississippi 



ANNOUNCEMENTS 



The Seventy'iiioith Session Begins 



FOREWORD 

Experience indicates that those who examine college catalogs 
are usually interested primarily in finding the answers to the follow- 
ing questions: 

(1) What is the general nature, type, and standing of the college? 

(2) What are the requirements for admission? 

(3) What is the cost of attending the college and what opportunities 
are available for earning part of these expenses? 

(4) What subjects of study are provided and what are the require- 
ments for graduation? 

(5) What rules does a student have to follow while attending the 
college? 

(6) What other activities are provided outside the classroom? 

(7) What physical equipment and financial resources does the col- 
lege have? 

In order to make this catalog easier to read, we have tried to 
arrange it so as to answer these questions in logical order. The first 
two questions, which are of concern primarily to prospective stu- 
dents, are answered in Part I. The other questions are covered suc- 
cessively in Parts II-VI, as shown in the Table of Contents on the 
opposite page. In Part VII we have given the necessary information 
with regard to the trustees, officers, and faculty, and have listed the 
names of other staff personnel. 

This catalog is primarily a record of the 1969-1970 session of the 
College. The academic calendar of the 1970-1971 session will be found 
in the back.

THE PURPOSE OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Millsaps College has as its primary aim the development of men and 
women for responsible leadership and well-rounded lives of useful service 
to their fellow men, their country, and their God. It seeks to function as 
a community of learners where faculty and students together seek the 
truth that frees the minds of men. 

As an institution of the Methodist Church, Millsaps College is dedi- 
cated to the idea that religion is a vital part of education; that education is 
an integral part of the Christian religion; and that church-related colleges, 
providing a sound academic program in a Christian environment, afford a 
kind of discipline and influence which no other type of institution can 
offer. The College provides a congenial atmosphere where persons of all 
faiths may study and work together for the development of their physical, 
intellectual, and spiritual capacities. 

As a liberal arts college, Millsaps seeks to give the student adequate 
breadth and depth of understanding of civilization and culture in order 
to broaden his perspective, to enrich his personality, and to enable him to 
think and act intelligently amid the complexities of the modem world. The 
curriculum is designed to avoid premature specialization and to integrate 
the humanities, the social studies, and the natural sciences for their mutual 
enrichment. 

The College recognizes that training which will enable a person to 
support himself adequately is an essential part of a well-rounded education. 
On the other hand, it believes that one of the chief problems of modem 
society is that in too many cases training as expert technicians has not 
been accompanied by education for good citizenship. It offers, therefore, 
professional and pre-professional training balanced by cultural and humane 
studies. In an environment that emphasizes the cultural and esthetic values 
to be found in the study of language, literature, philosophy, and science, 
the student at Millsaps can also obtain the necessary courses to prepare 
him for service in such fields as teaching, journalism, social work, and 
business or for professional study in these areas as well as in theology, 
medicine, dentistry, engineering, law, and other fields. 

As an institution of higher learning, Millsaps College fosters an atti- 
tude of continuing intellectual awareness, of tolerance, and of unbiased 
inquiry, without which true education cannot exist. It does not seek to 
indoctrinate, but to inform and inspire. It does not shape the student in 
a common mold of thought and ideas, but rather attempts to search out his 
often deeply hidden aptitudes, capacities, and aspirations and to provide 
opportunities for his maximum potential development. It seeks to broaden 
his horizons and to lift his eyes and heart toward the higher and nobler 
attributes of life. The desired result is an intelligent, voluntary dedication 
to moral principles and a growing social consciousness that will guide him 
into a rich, well-rounded Christian life, with ready acceptance of respon- 
sibility to neighbor, state, and church.

Tmstees of Millsaps College, 1955-56

Information for 
Prospective Students 



HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE 

Founded February 21, 1890, Millsaps is one of the youngest colleges 
supported by the Methodist Church. It was in the late eighties that the 
Mississippi Methodist Conferences appointed a joint commission to formulate 
plans for a "college for males under the auspices and control of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South." 

Among the members of this commission was Major Reuben Webster 
Millsaps, Jackson businessman and banker, who offered to give $50,000 to 
endow the institution, provided Methodists throughout the state matched this 
amount. 

Under the leadership of Bishop Charles Betts Galloway, the Methodists 
met the challenge of Major Millsaps. The charter for the College was granted 
February 21, 1890, and the College opened its doors in the fall of 1892. Co- 
education was instituted in the seventh session. 

The grovvi;h of the College through the years has been made possible by 
gifts from innumerable benefactors. Besides the generous gifts of Major Millsaps, 
the College has received large donations from W. S. F. Tatum, R. D. Sanders, 
Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Wilson, Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Ezelle, the W. M. Buie 
family, the C. R. Ridgway family, Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Bacot, and Robert Mason 
Strieker. Other individuals have endowed scholarship and loan funds, which 
are described elsewhere in this catalog. 

First president of the College was William Belton Murrah, who served- until 
1910. Along with Bishop Galloway and Major Millsaps, Bishop Murrah is com- 
monly thought of as one of the founders of the College. 

Other presidents have been David Carlisle Hull, M.A., (1910-1912); Alexan- 
der Farrar Watkins, D.D., (1912-1923); David Martin Key, Ph.D., LL.D., (1923- 
1938); Marion Lofton Smith, Ph.D., LL.D., (1938-1952); Homer Ellis Finger, 
Jr., B.D., D.D., (1952-1964); and Benjamin Barnes Graves, M.B.A., Ph. D., who 
has been president since 1964. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

is a church related college 

under the joint sponsorship of the Mississippi and North Mississippi Confer- 
ences of the United Methodist Church. The College adheres to the view 
that one of the fundamental bases of a church-related institution is Christian 
in the sense that knowledge of truth is part of its work. Millsaps, therefore, 
is not narrow in its outlook. During a typical academic year twenty-five 
denominations are represented in its student body and nearly a dozen in its 
faculty. 

is a small college 

with an enrollment of approximately 1,000 students. The close personal 
relationship that exists among students, faculty, and administration in the small 
college is one of the most vital parts of the college experience. 

is a co-educational college 

with an enrollment approximately three-fifths men and two-fifths women. 
Boys and girls study together throughout grammar school and high school. Men 



and women work together throughout later Hfe. They study and work together 
at Millsaps. 

is a liberal arts college 

with the primary aim of training its students for responsible citizenship and 
well-rounded lives rather than for narrow professional careers. One of the chief 
curses of our modern society is that so many of our people are expert lawyers, 
or doctors, or business men, or brick layers, without at the same time being 
good citizens. More than any other institution, the liberal arts college can remedy 
this defect by training its students, in whatever field of specialization they may 
choose, to be community leaders in responsible citizenship. 

offers professional and pre-professional training 

balanced by cultural and disciplinary studies. The College recognizes that 
in the modern world training which will enable a person to support himself 
adequately is an essential part of a well-rounded education. Therefore, the stu- 
dent at Millsaps can, for example, obtain the necessary courses to prepare him 
directly for a business career or for service in education, the ministry, or social 
work; he can study music as preparation for professional work in the field, as 
well as for its esthetic and cutural value; and he can obtain thoroughly sound 
basic courses which will prepare him for professional study in medicine, dentistry, 
law, and other fields. Professional leaders in all fields are coming more and more 
to recognize that the most valuable members of their profession are those who 
have had something more in their background of training than the narrow 
technical study necessary for proficiency in that field. 

selects its students carefully 

not on the basis of ability to pay or previous opportunity or charm of per- 
sonality, but on ability to think, desire to learn, good moral character, and in- 
tellectual maturity. The primary consideration in acting on all applications for 
admission is the ability to do college work in a measure satisfactory to the Col- 
lege and beneficial to the student. Tuition is kept low enough to make higher 
education available to all, but admission requirements high enough to include 
only those who can profit from it. 

has a cosmopolitan student body 

representing a wide geographical area. During a semester approximately 
thirty states and a half-dozen foreign countries are represented in the student 
body. Millsaps encourages, by scholarships and otherwise, the attendance of 
foreign students because of the mutual contribution this makes to international 
good will and understanding. 

is ideally located 

in the capital city of the state. Many educational advantages may be found 
in Jackson in addition to the courses offered at the College. The State Depart- 
ment of Archives and History, the State Library, the Library of the State De- 
partment of Health, and the Jackson Public Library provide research facilities 
found nowhere else in the state. The Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Jackson 
Little Theatre, the New Stage Theatre, The Jackson Opera Guild, Inc., and 



numerous musical, dramatic, and sporting events staged at the City Auditorium 
and the Mississippi Coliseum add materially to the cultural advantages available. 

is fully accredited

life offered by the College. Students of all races and religious faiths are 
welcomed. Applicants for admission must furnish evidence of: 

1. Good moral character 

2. Sound physical and mental health 

3. Adequate scholastic preparation 

4. Intellectual maturity 

Admission to Freshman Standing 

Application for admission to freshman standing may be made according to 
either of the following plans: 

1. By Certificate. 

Graduates of an accredited high school or secondary school may be ad- 
mitted to freshman standing on presentation of a transcript signed by the 



proper authorities of that school, showing the kind and amount of scholastic 
work done, provided that: 

(a) The student's record shows the satisfactory completion of at least sixteen 
acceptable units of secondary school work. 

(b) One-half of the units of secondary school work accepted for entrance

ment regarding qualifications and training. Such students may be regular- 
ly admitted if they qualify in a battery of achievement examinations given 
at the College under the direction of the Office of Student Personnel. 
These examinations are given on the scholastic work covered by the list 
of secondary units approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and 
Secondary Schools. 

College Entrance Examination Board certificates or the high school 
level General Educational Development Test may be accepted in place 
of high school certificates or examination by Millsaps College. 

Admission To Advanced Standing 

1. Millsaps College normally allows full credit to transfer students on work 
taken at other accredited institutions. Some courses which are not regarded 
as consistent with a liberal arts curriculum, however, may not be credited to- 
ward a degree. 

2. Students with good records at non-accredited institutions may be admitted 
on probation, and the work done at such institutions will be validated if the 
student makes a satisfactory record the first year at Millsaps. 

3. A maximum of 64 semester hours of credit will be allowed from a junior 
college. 

4. Full credit is allowed for all junior college academic courses of freshman and 
sophomore level and full elective credit allowed for other courses, with the 
proviso that junior college transfers may be called upon to do extra work 
necessary to fulfill the requirements at Millsaps for majors, for pre-profes- 
sional work, and for professional teaching licenses. 

5. After earning 64 semester hours of credit at a senior or junior college, a stu- 
dent will not be granted any additional credit toward a degree at Millsaps 
for work done at a junior college. 

9 



6. Grades and quality points made by students at other institutions will be re- 
corded on their records at Millsaps, but transfer students will be required to 
include in the 240 quality points required for graduation quality points earned 
at Millsaps at least double the number of hours of academic credit remaining 
on their graduation requirement after the transfer credits are entered. 

7. In the case of students transferring to Millsaps with more than 3 but less 
than 6 hours credit in a required subject, the head of the department con- 
cerned is authorized to approve a 3-hour elective in that department as a 
substitute for the remainder of the required course. 

8. Credit will not be given for work done by correspondence. 

Admission As Special Student 

1. A special student is one who enrolls for less than 12 hours of academic work 
per semester or one who has previously received a baccalaureate degree. 
Students in their senior year taking all the work required to complete a degree 
are not considered special students, even though taking less than 12 hours. 

2. For admission as a special student the candidate must be at least 21 years 
of age and must present adequate proof of good character and of maturity 
of training. 

3. Special students may enroll for whatever courses they desire without regard 
to graduation requirements, but must in all cases meet the prerequisites for 
the courses elected by them. 

4. No special student may be recognized as a candidate for a degree unless he 
completes all entrance requirements at least one year before the date of gradua- 
tion. No college credit will be granted until entrance requirements are satis- 
fied. 

5. Special students are not permitted to represent the College in intercollegiate 
activities. 

Advanced Placement 

Millsaps College participates in the Advanced Placement Program which is 
administered by the College Entrance Examination Board. Advanced placement 
is awarded on the basis of good performance on the CEEB Advanced Place- 
ment Tests or, in some cases, on placement tests given by Millsaps College 
during freshman orientation week. Grades of 5 or 4 on the CEEB Advanced 
Placement Tests are accepted for advanced placement. 

A student who has made a score of 5 or 4 on one or more CEEB 
Advanced Placement Tests is automatically eligible to receive course credit as 
well as advanced placement in the appropriate field or fields. The amount of 
credit corresponds to the amount of course work waived, up to a maximum of 
8 semester hours in any one field. The student must decide whether or not 
to accept an award of course credit prior to registration for his first semester. 
The student is advised to consult his assigned faculty adviser or the chairman 
of the appropriate department before making his decision. 

No grades or quality points will be assigned to credit hours granted under 
the Advanced Placement Policy stated herein.

HOW TO APPLY FOR ADMISSION 

All persons not in residence at Millsaps during the preceding regular semester 
must apply to the Admissions Committee and be accepted prior to registiration 
for the fall and spring semesters. 

A prospective student should apply for admission well in advance of the 
date on which he wishes to enter, particularly if housing accommodations on the 
campus are desired. The Admissions Committee begins acting in December on 
completed applications for both the Spring and Fall semesters. 

In applying for admission a prospective student should follow the procedure 
described below: 

1. He should request an Application for Admission from the Director of Admis- 
sions. 

2. He should fill out this application blank and the housing form and return them 
to the Director of Admissions with the $10.00 application fee. This fee is not 
refunded to a student whose application is approved by the Admissions Com- 
mittee, nor is it credited to the student's account. The fee is used to defray 
a portion of the expense of processing the application for admission or read- 
mission. 

3. The Freshman applicant should have a Counselor and teachers forward to the 
Director of Admissions the Personal Reference forms, which will be supplied 
with the application blank. 

4. He should have his high school principal or college registrar send an offi- 
cial transcript of his credits directly to the Director of Admissions. A sepa- 
rate transcript is required from every secondary school or college attended, 
even though credits previously earned are included on the transcript from 
the school last attended. A student who has already earned some college 
credit, however, need not have a separate transcript of his high school 
credits sent if these are included on his college transcript. 

5. He must submit results of either the American College Test (ACT) or the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) of the College Entrance Examination Board 
to the Director of Admissions. The Freshman applicant should take one of 
these tests as early as possible, preferably on the earliest Fall testing date. 

If the prospective student is in school at the time he applies for admis- 
sion, he should have a transcript sent showing his credits up to that time. If 
he is accepted, a supplementary transcript will be required later showing the 
completion of his work. 



COUNSELING PROGRAM 

The fundamental objective of all counseling services is to assist each student 
to be ready and able to accomplish maximum success in his academic work. 
Consequently, every member of the college community participates in counsel- 
ing, and specialists from the community are used as referral resources when the 
nature of a student's problem requires highly specialized therapy. Basically, 
the divisions of the counseling program are as follows: 

1. Pre-Registration Counseling 

In order to assist new and prospective students to plan wisely in looking 
forward to their college careers, the College will provide counseling services 

11 



to any prospective student who may desire to explore his vocational and 
educational objectives before he enters his classes in the fall semester. Stu- 
dents who have been admitted are urged to take advantage of this service. 

2. Orientation 

All freshmen are expected to be on the campus on September 7, 1970, to 
participate in the orientation program, Transfer students are expected on 
Monday, September 8, 1970. This program is developed and executed 
cooperatively by students and faculty for the purpose of assisting students 
to be adequately prepared for entering fully into the college program. 

3. Faculty Advisers 

Each new student at Millsaps is assigned to a member of the faculty who 
serves as the adviser for that student with respect to his academic program. 
At the time a student chooses his major field of study, his major professor 
automatically becomes his faculty adviser. 

4. Personal Counseling 

Particular attention is given by the Office of Student Personnel to counseling 
students on such matters as vocational choice, selection of fields of study, 
study skills, reading skills, emotional adjustment, and similar college student 
problems. 

5. Testing 

Each student entering Millsaps takes part in the entrance testing program, 
which is designed to provide information that will assist persons who counsel 
with him to work effectively in helping him plan his program and activities 
at the College. In addition, any student registered in the College has avail- 
able to him individual testing services to assist him in self-analysis and plan- 
ning in terms of his individual aptitudes, interests, and personality character- 
istics. 



STUDENT HOUSING 

The housing program of the College is coordinated by the Dean of Men 
and the Dean of Women in cooperation with the dormitory housemothers, coun- 
selors, and managers. Men students live in our men's residence halls or in 
fraternity houses. Only active members of a fraternity are permitted to live in 
its house. Women students live in our women's residence halls. The regula- 
tions by which resident women students are governed are formulated and ad- 
ministered by the Women's Student Government Association. All dormitory 
residents are expected to maintain their rooms in a clean and reasonably neat 
condition. 

All out-of-town students are required to reside in college housing facilities, 
unless they have received permission, in writing, through the Office of Student 
Personnel to live in off-campus housing. Application forms for permission to 
live off campus are available in the Student Personnel Office. Out-of-town stu- 
dents wishing to live off campus should complete these forms and receive ap- 
proval in advance of any move and before incurring obligations to a prospective 
landlord. No out-of-town student classified below the junior level will be given 
permission to live off campus. Students who desire to live with relatives while 
attending Millsaps must secure permission in writing from the Office of Student 
Personnel. 

12 



Dormitory facilities are designed to house two students in each space. 
Students desiring to room together should make every effort to pay reservation 
fees at the same time and to specify their desire to room together. Room 
assignments are made in the order in which students' reservation fees or com- 
pleted applications have been received, whichever is later. Preferences for a 
particular room will be honored unless it has been taken by someone whose 
eligibility for the room entitles him to it. 

After notification of room assignment, a student must accept or reject the 
assignment in writing within two weeks of the notification. Room rent cannot 
be refunded after the semester has begun. 

Dormitories open for occupancy at 2 p.m. of the day preceding each term 
or semester and close at 4 p.m. on the last day of each term or semester. All 
dormitories close at 2 p.m. on the afternoon of the day that Christmas and spring 
holidays begin and re-open at 2 p.m. on the day immediately preceding the day 
that classes resume following the holiday period. No students can be housed in 
the dormitories during the Christmas holiday period. 



DINING FACILITIES 

The College Dining, Hall and the College Grill are located in the Boyd 
Campbell Student Center. These food services are under contract to a pro- 
fessional food service company to assure the best in food and service at moderate 
rates. The average cost per meal to the student on the 7-day plan is 620, and 
on the five-day plan (Sunday supper through Friday lunch) the average cost 
per meal is 750. Three meals per day purchased with cash will average $1.22 
per meal. The resident plans assure the student economical and wholesome food 
three meals a day in a challenging atmosphere with a congenial social life. 
Student groups are encouraged to use the meal hour for academic discussions, 
language practice, and exchange of ideas. 

The College Grill is in the same building with the Dining Hall. It is 
available to those who wish a la carte service and short orders. There is a 
complete soda fountain service. The Grill operates on a cash sales basis. 



STUDENT MEDICAL SERVICES 

The medical services are designed to provide treatment and care for students 
with minor illnesses, diagnostic and referral services and to implement preventive 
and educational programs. The services of the college physician are available 
through the nurse on duty or one of the housemothers. 

Students with minor illnesses are cared for on campus. More serious illnesses 
or those requiring long-term care are referred to one of the local hospitals or 
to home on a private patient basis. Each student is urged to have insurance 
for medical care, either through a family policy or by enrolling in the group 
insurance made available through the College. 

New students are required to have their personal physicians complete and 
mail in a physical examination form. This form is provided the student before 
the opening of the term in which he will enroll. In addition, each new student 
is required to have influenza immunizations prior to enrollment.

THE BOYD CAMPBELL STUDENT CENTER 

The heart of a small college is the close relationship between students and 

faculty. From this relationship pulses the life-blood of the campus in the form 

, , ^' ' of mutual confidence, mutual respect, and mutual concern for the welfare of 

r '■ the total membership of the college community. The Boyd Campbell Student 

I ■. '■. Center makes a unique contribution to the College by serving as the "living room" 

of the campus where friends can meet for relaxation and enrichment through 

interpersonal contacts; by providing a center for extracurricular activities; by 

'..'^ providing a central location for the cafeteria, the grill, the post office, and the 

['.'• V bookstore; by serving as a focal point for commuters and off-campus students; 

,; .' ', and by providing a general unifying influence for the entire campus.

entering Millsaps for the first time in the 1970-71 session as well as for previously 
enrolled students. In all cases, the guarantee will expire after the normal number 
of years for graduation has elapsed. For example, in the case of an entering 
freshman the guarantee is for four years. Should he need an additional year 
to complete his work his tuition for that year will be the amount stated in the 
catalog for that additional year. In the case of a previously enrolled second-year 
student or transfer classified as a sophomore, the guarantee will expire after three 
years, the point in time when he would normally graduate.

as in-state students. There is no non-resident student fee. 

It is appropriate to note that the semester charge of $705.00 covers only 
part of the actual educational cost for each student. Millsaps College assumes 
responsibility for the additional cost. 

Basic costs are on a semester basis as follows: 

Tuition $500.00, General Fees $205.00, Meals $225.00, Room $150.00. 

General fees include registration and administration, library, student union 
building, physical education, speech activities, music activities, speakers' bureau,

hours; Music, forty-two hours; Education, forty-two hours. 

6. Residence Requirements: 

One year of residence is required for graduation from Millsaps, and 30 of 
the last 36 hours of academic work must be done in residence. The two 
exceptions allowed to this rule are: (1) students who have been approved 
for the prescribed pre-medical technologist program may take the last 26 
hours at the affiliated institution and (2) students leaving to enter graduate or 
professional school may transfer back the final 18 hours of work. In this latter 
case, however, residence will be required at Millsaps for the second semester 
of the Junior year and the first semester of the Senior year. 

Three summer sessions will be considered as equivalent to the one year 
of residence recjuired. 

7. English Proficiency Requirement: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree each student is recjuired to demonstrate 
proficiency in English composition and usage by passing an examination given 
by the English Department. It consists of a 500-word essay written extempore 
within two and one-half hours on a subject selected from a list furnished at 
the examination. 

The examination is given by the English Department at two stated times 
in the academic year. The regular administration is on the second Thursday in 
November from 4 to 6:30 p.m. in Sullivan-Harrell Hall. A special administration 
of the examination is given on the second Thursday in March from 4 to 6:30 
p.m. in Murrah Hall to seniors who hope to graduate but who have not passed 
the Junior English Proficiency Examination. Seniors who fail the special exami- 
nation and who think they have compelling cause may petition the Academic 
Dean for an extraordinary administration of the examination in the Summer 
Session following. If the Dean grants the petition, he may also stipulate that 
the student must audit English 101-102 during the Summer Session. 

All rising juniors, transfer students at the junior and senior levels, and seniors 
who failed the examination in their junior year must register for the November 
administration of the proficiency examination at the time of fall registration. 

Each student who fails the examination in November is assigned to a 
member of the English Department for remedial instruction. The English 
Department offers the tutorial work gladly, but the students must avail them- 
selves of it. 

8. Extracurricular Credits: 

The following extracurricular activities to a maximum of eight semester hours 
may be included in the 128 semester hours required for graduation:

Bobashela, the Stylus, and the officers in the Student Government.) 

9. Majors: 

In addition to taking the prescribed work for the degree, the student must

Business Administration, Education, English, Geology, German, Greek, History, 
Latin, Mathematics, Music, Philosophy, Physics, Polilical Science, Psychology, 
Religion, Romance Languages, Speech and Theatre, Sociology and Anthropology. 

Specific requirements for the major can be found under the appropriate 
department of instruction. 

Students may be permitted to major in a subject only after careful con- 
sideration and with the consent of the head of the department. 

A major for each student must be approved by one of the department heads 
not later than the beginning of the junior year. Three cards will be signed by 
the major professor to show approval of the choice of a major; and these 
cards will be kept on file, one with the Registrar's Office and one with the 
major professor, and one in the Office of Student Personnel. 

No junior or senior registration will be accepted as complete by the 
Registrar's Office without the signed approval of the major professor. 

For failing to maintain a C average or for other good cause, a student 
may change his major or be advised by his major professor to change his major 
as late as October 1 of his senior year. He must submit to the Registrar's Office 
on regular form (obtainable from the Registrar's Office) the express permission 
of both the Dean and the head of the proposed new major department. Transfer 
credit will be accepted toward a major only with the approval of the department. 

10. Comprehensive Examinations: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satisfactory 
comprehensive examination in his major field of study. This examination is given 
in the Senior year and is intended to cover subject matter greater in scope than 
a single course or series of courses. The purpose of the comprehensive examination 
is to coordinate the class work with independent reading and thinking in such a 
way as to relate the knowledge acquired and give the student a general under- 
standing of the field which could not be acquired from individual courses. 

The comprehensive examination requires at least three hours and is part 
written and part oral, the division of time between the two to be at the discretion 
of the members of the department concerned. The oral examination will be con- 
ducted by a committee composed of members of the department, and, if desired by 
the department, one or more members of the faculty from other departments or 
other qualified persons. 

A student may take the comprehensive examination only if the courses in 
which he has credit and which he is currently enrolled complete the require- 
ments in the major department. He may take the examination in the spring 
semester if he will be within 18 hours of graduation by the end of that semester. 
The examination will be given in December or January for students who meet the 
other requirements and who will not be in residence at Millsaps during the spring 
semester. 

38 



The time of the comprehensive examination given in the spring semester is the 
last week in April of each year. Comprehensive examinations will not be given 
during the summer except by permission of the Dean. Those who fail a compre- 
hensive examination may have an opportunity to take another examination after 
the lapse of two months. If the student fails the second comprehensive, he may 
not have another until he has taken at least one additional semester's work at 
Millsaps College. 

11. Quality index required: 

A minimum of 240 quality points is required for the B.A. and B.S. degrees; 
248 for the B. M. degree. An over-all quality point index of 2.00 is required of 
all students. The index is always calculated on total number of hours attempted. 

12. Application for a degree: 

Each student who is a candidate for a degree is required to submit a 
written application for the degree by March 1 of the year of his graduation. 
This date will apply also to students who plan to complete their work in sum- 
mer school. Forms for degree applications are to be secured and filed in the 
Registrar's Office. 

13. Requirements for second degree: 

In order to earn a second degree from Millsaps College a student must 
have thirty additional semester hours of work beyond the 128 semester hours 
required for the first degree and these additional hours must include all of 
the requirements for both the second degree and the second major. 



SUGGESTED DEGREE PROGRAMS 

A regular student will be required to enroll for English, mathematics, and 
foreign language each year until he has satisfied the degree requirements in 
those subjects. Entering freshmen, however, may defer either mathematics or

to the summer session, nor do they apply to students entering the second 
semester if the appropriate courses are not offered at that time.

The student is urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory 
Committee (Berry, Christmas, Galloway, McKeown) in designing a program of 
courses that will fit his particular needs, background, and interest. 

Millsaps College and many medical and dental schools strongly recommend 
that the student obtain a baccalaureate degree in an area of his interest. This 
catalog should be consulted elsewhere for the exact major and degree require- 
ments. Millsaps and most medical and dental schools also strongly recommend 
that the student develop a sound background in the humanities and social 



The student should remember that the requirements listed in a medical or 
dental school catalog are minimal but that he should give himself maximum 
preparation. In general, the student who is weak in some science, as shown by 
his performance in his introductory college courses, is urged to take further work 
in that science to prepare himself adequately. The student should also utilize 
his limited time in taking courses that will not be available during his professional 
training. The following courses are recommended as electives by many medical 
and dental schools. 

Biology (251-252, 381, 391 or 315)

This curriculum may be followed also by those planning to be Directors of 
Christian Education. 

Students planning professional careers in the church must plan to attain 
the appropriate professional degree from a seminary, and should obtain a broad 
undergraduate liberal arts basis as preparation for their professional education. 
Any undergraduate major may be chosen, but students should especially con- 
sider majors in Ancient Languages, English, History, Philosophy, Psychology, 
Psychology-Sociology, Religion, or Sociology. The general foreign language re- 
quirement is best met by German, Greek, or Latin as preparation for seminary 
education. 

PRELAW 

No particular major or sequence of courses is necessary for students planning 
to go to law school; there is no ideal pre-law program for all students. To do 
well in the study of law, a student should possess 

(a) ability to communicate effectively and precisely; 

(b) critical understanding of the human institutions with which the law 
deals; 

(c) creative power in thinking. 

Different students may obtain the desired training in these three areas from 
different courses. Therefore, the student should consult with his faculty or 
major adviser and with the pre-law adviser in designing a program of courses 
that will best fit his particular needs, background, and interests. The student 
with a pre-law interest should consult the pre-law adviser, Mr. Adams, from 
time to time. 

PRE-SOCIAL WORK 

Students who wish to prepare for a professional career in Social Work 
should plan a broad liberal arts program with a major in one of the social sciences. 
Because of the widely varied opportunities in this field, no specific schedule of 
courses is recommended for the Junior and Senior years. Instead, each student 
is urged to consult with his faculty adviser to plan a schedule.

EDUCATIONAL CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS 

TEACHER EDUCATION 

A placement bureau for teachers is maintained under the direction of the 
Department of Education. It seeks to further the interests of teachers educated at 
Millsaps College and to be of service to school officials who wish to secure able 
teachers. 

Millsaps offers a major in elementary education at two levels: kindergarten 
through the third grade; fourth through the eighth grade. 

A major in secondary education is not offered; the student desirous of 
secondary certification is required to major in some department other than 
Education. For endorsement to teach, the student must take certain specified 
courses in general education, specified courses in his major field, and specified 
courses in Education. 

State requirements for teaching certificates are quite detailed and specific, 
and students must take the exact courses specified. It is the responsibility 
of the student at both the elementary and secondary levels to coordinate courses 
for certification to teach with requirements for graduation from Millsaps out- 
lined on page 36.

MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY 

Millsaps College offers a three year program for those who plan to enter 
schools of medical technology. This college work includes not only the necessary 
science and mathematics courses, but also courses in history, fine arts, foreign 
language, sociology, composition, literature and other courses which insure a 
liberal arts experience for premedical technology students. 

Millsaps College maintains a formal affiliation with several schools of 
medical technology which are approved by the Council on Medical Education 
and Hospitals of the American Medical Association. This is the only qualifying 
board recognized by the American Medical Association, the American Society of 
Clinical Pathologists, the American Colleges of Surgeons, the American Hospital 
Association and other authoritative medical groups. 

The medical technology student is expected to spend the first three years 
at Millsaps College (or transfer here from another recognized college, with 
at least the third year spent in residence here) and the senior year at the 

48 



approved hospital. The student must complete the general requirements for the 
B.S. degree with a major in Biology, by talcing the courses outlined below. 
The courses required for registry are accepted as completing the requirements 
of 128 semester hours for graduation. A satisfactory grade on the national 
registry examination is accepted in lieu of the departmental comprehensive oral 
examination. The B.S. degree is awarded at the first commencement exercise 
following the completion of the medical technology training and passing the 
national registry examination. 

Medical technology students who wish to complete four years of college 
may secure the B.S. or B.A. degree before entering an approved school of 
medical technology.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS 

THE HERITAGE PROGRAM 

The Heritage Program is the first of several interdisciplinary courses and 
programs planned and envisioned as a result of an extensive curriculum review 
and revision recently undertaken by the Faculty of Millsaps College. It is 
especially designed for entering Freshmen and provides an alternative to the 



49 



traditional method of fulfilling basic curriculum requirements in English, history, 
religion, philosophy, and the fine arts. 

In the traditional approach the student enrolls in a series of separate courses; 
in the Heritage Program, the resources and perspectives of many departments 
are combined to present the story of Man's heritage in its many dimensions. 
The student still works in the areas of history, literature, religion, philosophy, 
fine arts, classical studies, communication skills, etc., but in the Heritage Program 
he approaches all of these within an interdisciplinary framework. Lectures and 
discussion leaders come from a variety of disciplines. 

The Heritage Program consists of two closely related courses running parallel 
to one another: Heritage 101-102, THE CULTURAL HERITAGE OF THE 
WEST (which fulfills the degree requirements in History 101-102, English 
201-202, 3 hours of religion, 3 hours of philosophy, and 3 hours of fine arts) 
and English 103-104, COMPOSITION (which fulfills the degree requirement 
in English 101-102). Normally students interested in participating in the Heritage 
Program should enroll in both of these courses in the Freshman year; however, 
B.S. candidates may defer Heritage 101-102 to the Sophomore year, but will be 
required to enroll in English 101-102 in the Freshman year. B.S. candidates who 
expect advanced placement (intermediate level or beyond) in a foreign language 
must take the language in the Freshman year.

THE HONORS PROGRAM 

The Honors Program provides an opportunity for students of Junior standing 
and of proven ability and initiative to examine together in a series of inter- 
disciplinary colloquia matters of mutual interest and concern and at the same 



50 



time to pursue a course of independent directed study and research in areas 
of their major disciphnes. A student interested in participating in the Honors 
Program should consult with the chairman of his department as early in his 
academic career as possible. Specific requirements of this program are to be 
found on page 103. 

THE WASHINGTON SEMESTER 

"The Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The American 
University, Washington, D.C., Millsaps College and other colleges and universi- 
ties in the United States to extend the resources of the national capital to superior 
students in the field of the social sciences. The object is to provide a direct 
contact with the work of governmental departments and other national and inter- 
national agencies that are located in Washington, thus acquainting the students 
with possible careers in public service and imparting a knowledge of government 
in action. 

Under this arrangement qualified students of demonstrated capacity from the 
participating colleges will spend a semester at the School of Government and 
Public Administration of The American University in Washington. They may 
earn fifteen hours toward graduation in their home colleges. Six hours of credit 
are earned in a Conference Seminar, in which high-ranking leaders of politics and 
government meet with students. Three hours of credit are earned in a Research 
Course which entails the writing of a paper by utilizing the resources available 
only at the nation's capital. The remainder of a student's course load constitutes 
electives which are taken from the normal offerings of American University. In 
Washington the program is coordinated by faculty members of The American 
University. 

Millsaps will ordinarily send two students in each fall semester. These will 
be either juniors or first semester seniors and will be selected by a faculty 
committee in April of each year. It is sometimes possible to send more than two 
students in the fall or to send a student in the spring. Exceptionally well- 
qualified sophomores are occasionally accepted. The student technically remains 
an enrollee of his home college for the purpose of scholarships and loans, which 
are thus not affected by his participation in the program. 

THE UNITED NATIONS SEMESTER 

A cooperative program with Drew University in Madison, New Jersey, 
enables Millsaps political science majors to spend a semester making a first 
hand study of the work of the United Nations. Participants may earn fifteen 
hours of credit toward graduation. Three hours of credit are earned in a Con- 
ference Seminar, which meets two days of each week in the United Nations 
Plaza. Members of the Secretariat, delegates, and special agency representatives 
often lead discussions in a planned program of studies. Students also earn three 
hours of credit by engaging in an individual research project on some phase of 
the United Nations. The remaining hours of credit are electives taken from the 
regular course offerings of Drew's liberal arts college. 

The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the 
purpose of scholarships and loans, which are thus not affected by his participation 
in the program. 

51 



THE LONDON SEMESTER 

Another cooperative program with Drew University enables upperclass 
pohtical science majors the opportunity to study in London, England, for a 
semester. Fifteen hours of credit are earned in the social sciences, with primary 
emphasis on political science. The faculty, including a resident director from 
Drew, includes members of the faculty of the London School of Economics and 
Political Science, Oxford University, Leeds University, and other outstanding 
schools. Students live in a residential hotel in the heart of London. Provision is 
made for an optional pre-Fall or post-Spring tour of the Continent at a modest 
cost. 

The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the 
purpose of scholarships and loans, which are thus not affected by his participation 
in the program. 

LEGISLATIVE INTERN PROGRAM 

When the Mississippi Legislature is in session, selected political science 
students may participate in an internship program which permits them to observe 
the state law-making process. Students serve as aides to legislators and legislative 
committees, performing a variety of tasks such as research, writing, and marking 
up bills. Students also take part in a seminar with other interns to examine the 
legislative process. 

JUNIOR YEAR ARROAD PROGRAM 

Millsaps College, in conjunction with Southwestern at Memphis and the 
University of the South (Sewanee), conducts a Junior Year Abroad Program at 
the Institute for American Universities at Aix-en-Provence, France. Opportunities 
for similar studies are available in most countries of Western Europe as well as 
in Latin America. Students interested in receiving college credit for study abroad 
during their junior year may receive information concerning such a program 
from the chairman of the appropriate department or the Academic Dean. 

ACCOUNTING— RUSINESS— ECONOMICS 
INTERN PROGRAM 

Outstanding students have the opportunity of obtaining specialized training 
and practical experience through an established Internship Program. The program 
involves prominent regional and national business organizations and an agency 
of the Federal government. The student's training is conducted and supervised 
by competent management personnel according to a predetermined agenda of 
activities. Evaluation of the student's participation and progress provides the 
basis for granting appropriate academic credit. 

COOPERATIVE PROGRAMS 

With the permission of the Associate Dean and the chairman of the depart- 
ment involved, full-time students in Millsaps College may enroll for certain 
courses at either Belhaven College or Tougaloo College. Belhaven College is 

52 



located a few blocks east of the Millsaps campus. Tougaloo College is eight 
miles north, at the edge of Jackson. 

These cooperative arrangements afford an opportunity for students to enroll 
in courses either not offered at Millsaps College or not scheduled during the 
appropriate semester or at an acceptable class hour. 



MILLSAPS-GULF COAST RESEARCH LABORATORY 
COOPERATIVE PROGRAM 

Students at Millsaps College, especially those in Geology, Biology, and 
Chemistry, are permitted to enroll for one or more courses each summer at 
Gulf Coast Research Laboratory as a part of their regular program of studies. 
The Laboratory is situated near Ocean Springs, 180 miles to the south of Jackson. 
It offers some six courses which may be used as electives or as core courses in 
the Millsaps curriculum. Summer work at the Laboratory provides first-hand 
knowledge of the life on land, in the sea, and in a brackish water environment. 

Another Millsaps-Gulf Coast Research Laboratory cooperative program is 
the Gulf Coast Semester for directed study each fall semester. See page 54.

and intelligent citizenship; (2) to meet the needs of four types of students — (a) 
those who will proceed to the usual academic degrees at the end of four years; 
(b) those who will enter professional schools after three or four years; (c) those 
who are preparing for teaching, scientific investigation, or both; and (d) those 
who will take less than a complete academic program. 

An effort is made to show the student that there is an intangible worth to 
mathematics; that there is such a thing as mathematics as an art, mathematics 
for its own sake, mathematics for the sheer joy of comparing, analyzing, and 
imagining.

XX DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY 
AND ANTHROPOLOGY 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR CLAMPIT 
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR COKER ASSISTANT PROFESSOR DODOO 

Race riots, urban redevelopment, crime and conformity, student protest, 
industrialization — these are some of the topics which sociology studies through 
focussing on how institutions (such as the family, the church, and caste) relate 
to one another within changing societies. Anthropology provides a comparison by 
studying similar processes in pre-literate societies such as the Pygmies, head- 
hunting Jivaro, and the Eskimo. 

Courses in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology are planned (1) 
to develop the liberal arts student's knowledge about the nature of societies 
and how institutions are maintained as well as changed. (2) To give students 
a greater perception and understanding of social processes in a changing world, 
so they may lead more effective and enlightened careers in sociological and 
anthropological research; social work, teaching, and the ministry; as well as 
community organization, social change, and urban planning.

Part IV 



Administration 
of The Curriculum 



GRADES, HONORS, CLASS STANDING 

GRADING SYSTEM 

The grade of the student in any class is determined by the combined class 
standing and the result of a written examination. The examination grade is 
counted as approximately one-third of the grade for the semester. 

"A" represents superior work. 

"B" represents above the average achievement in the regularly prescribed work. 

"C" represents an average level of achievement in the regularly prescribed work. 

"D" represents a level of achievement in the regularly prescribed work of the 
class below the average in the same relationship as the grade of "B" is above 
the average. 

"E" represents a condition and is changed to a "D" if the grade in the other 
semester of the course is "C" or above, providing that the "E" precedes the 
higher grade on the student's record. 

"F" represents failure to do the regularly prescribed work of the class. All marks 
of "D" and above are passing marks and "F" represents failure. 

"WP" indicates that the student has withdrawn from the course while passing, 
and "WF" means that he has withdrawn while failing. 

"I" indicates that the work is incomplete and is changed to "F" if the work is 
not completed by the end of the following semester. 

QUALITY POINTS 

The completion of any academic course with a grade of "D" shall entitle 
a student to one quality point for each semester hour, the completion of a 
course with a grade of "C" for the semester shall entitle a student to two 
quality points for each semester hour, the completion of a course with a grade 
of "B" for the semester shall entitle a student to three quality points for each 
semester hour, and the completion of a course with a grade of "A" shall entitle 
a student to four quality points for each semester hour. A quality point index 
is arrived at by dividing the total number of quality points by the number 
of academic hours taken. The change from a 3.00 to a 4.00 quality point 
index became effective at Millsaps College on June 5, 1968. 

CLASS STANDING OF STUDENTS 

The following number of hours and quality points is required: 

For sophomore rating 24 hours; 24 quality points 

For junior rating 52 hours; 72 quality points 

For senior rating 90 hours; 144 quality points 

A student's classification for the entire year is on the basis of his status at 
the beginning of the fall semester. 

GRADUATION WITH DISTINCTION 

A student whose quality point index is 3.2 for his entire course shall be 
graduated Cum Laude; one whose quality point index is 3.6 and who has a 

102 



rating of excellent on the comprehensive examination shall be graduated Magna 
Cum Laude; and one whose quality point index is 3.9 and who has a rating 
of excellent on the comprehensive examination shall be graduated Summa Cum 
Laude. 

To be eligible for graduation Cum Laude,- Magna Cum Laude or Summa 
Cum Laude, a student must have passed at least sixty academic semester hours 
in Millsaps College. Distinction or special distinction may be refused a student 
who, in the judgment of the faculty, has forfeited his right. 

In determining eligibility for distinction or special distinction in the case 
of students who have not done all their college work at Millsaps, the quality 
points earned on the basis of grades made at other institutions will be considered, 
but the student will be considered eligible only if he has the required index 
both on the work done at Millsaps and on his college courses as a whole. 

GRADUATION WITH HONORS: THE HONORS PROGRAM 

A full-time student with Junior standing who has an over-all quality point 
index of 3.0 may during the first semester of his Junior year apply to his de- 
partment chairman for permission to declare himself a candidate for honors. 
Admission requires acceptance of the student by the chaimian of the depart- 
ment and approval by the Honors Council. Entrance into the Honors Program 
becomes effective as of the spring semester of the Junior year. 

The Honors Program extends over three semesters. A student admitted into 
the Program will in the second semester of his Junior year enroll with his honors 
adviser in a directed study entitled Honors I (Colloquium). Enrollment in Honors 
II and Honors III (Research) will ordinarily follow in the fall and spring 
semesters of the Senior year. A letter grade will be given for each of these 
courses. The three semesters of honors work are intended to culminate in an 
honors paper to be presented to the Honors Council and defended before an 
examining board. 

The first semester in the Honors Program consists of an Honors Colloquium 
designed to bring together for the purpose of intellectual exchange all those 
students participating in the Honors Program. The aim of the Honors Colloquium 
is the total involvement of good minds in the exchange of ideas and values 
centering around selected themes and areas of investigation of mutual interest 
to all disciplines. The Honors Colloquium is an interdisciplinary venture and 
is required of all students entering the Honors Program. 

A candidate who completes the honors work satisfactorily, who presents and 
defends the honors paper satisfactorily, who has a 3.0 overall quality point 
index, and who has a 3.33 index in honors work will be graduated with Honors. 
A candidate who has a 3.6 overall quality point index, who has a 4.0 index in 
honors work and who in the estimation of the examining board has presented 
a superior honors paper will be graduated with High Honors. 

A student may voluntarily withdraw his candidacy for honors at any time. 
Students enrolled in honors courses are, however, bound by the general college 
rules for dropping a course and for receiving course credit. Candidacy may be 
involuntarily terminated at any time upon the recommendation of the honors 
adviser and with the approval of the Honors Council. 

103 



DEAN'S LIST 
Those meeting the following requirements are honored by inclusion on the 
Dean's List: 

1. Scholarship: 

(a) The student must carry not less than twelve academic hours during 
the semester on which the scholastic average is based; 

(b) The student must have a quality point average for the preceding 
semester of 3.2; 

(c) The student must have no mark lower than a C for the preceding 
semester. 

2. Conduct: 

The student must be, in the judgment of the deans, a good citizen of the 
college community. 

REPORTS 

Reports are sent at the close of each nine weeks to the parent or guardian 
of each student. These reports indicate, as nearly as practicable, the nature of 
the progress made by the student in his work at the college. 

HOURS PERMITTED 

Fifteen academic semester hours is considered the normal load per semester. 

No student may take more than seventeen semester hours of academic work 
unless he has a quality index of 2.5 on the latest previous college term or 
semester. No student may take more than nineteen semester hours of academic 
work unless he has a quality point index of 3.00 on the latest previous college 
term or semester and obtains permission from the Associate Dean. No student 
may receive credit for more than twenty-one hours in a semester under any 
circumstances. 

A freshman student may not enroll for more than eight hours of laboratory 
science courses in any one semester except upon the recommendation of the 
student's official advisor. 

Any student who is permitted to take more than seventeen semester hours 
of work will be required to pay at the rate of $10.00 for each additional semester 
hour over seventeen. 

No student can be registered for courses in another college at the same 
time he is enrolled in Millsaps without the written permission of the Associate 
Dean. 



ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS 

CHANGE OF SCHEDULE 

A student cannot change classes or drop classes or take up new classes ex- 
cept by the consent of the Dean, his faculty adviser, and all faculty members 
concerned. Courses dropped within the first two weeks of a semester do not 
appear on the student's record. Courses dropped after the first two weeks and 

104 



before the middle of a semester are recorded as WP (withdrawn passing) or 
WF (withdrawn failing). Courses dropped after the middle of a semester are 
recorded as failures. If a student drops a course at any time without securing 
the required approvals, he receives an F in that course and is subject to further 
disciplinary action. 

WITHDRAWAL 

A student desiring to withdraw from college within any term must obtain 
permission from the Associate Dean and file a withdrawal card. No refund will be 
considered unless this written notice is procured and presented to the Business 
Office. 

Refunds upon withdrawal will be made only as outlined elsewhere in this 
catolog under the heading of "Financial Regulations." 

A student who withdraws from college with pemiission after the first two 
weeks of a semester is recorded as WP (withdrawn passing) or WF (withdrawn 
failing) in each course. A student who withdraws without permission receives 
a grade of F in each course. 

Enforced withdrawal may result from habitual delinquency in class, or 
any other circumstance which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose 
for which he should have come to college. 

The college reserves the right to cancel the registration of any student at 
any time. In such a case, the pro rata portion of tuition will be returned, except 
that students withdrawing under discipline forfeit the right to a refund for any 
charges. 

No student who withdraws from college for whatever reason is entitled to 
a report card or to a transcript of credits until he shall have settled his account 
in the Business Office. 

AUTOMATIC EXCLUSION 

To remain in college a freshman must pass in the first semester six hours of 
academic work. 

After the first half year a student must pass at least nine hours of academic 
work each semester to continue in college. 

Furthermore, the maximum number of semesters a student may be on aca- 
demic probation without automatic exclusion is two. 

Students who are requested not to re-enter because of academic failure 
may petition in writing for readmission, but such petition will not be granted 
unless convincing evidence is presented that the failure was due to unusual 
causes of a non-recurring nature and that the student will maintain a satisfactory 
record during the subsequent semester. 

PROBATION 

Probation is defined as follows: 

Academic Probation — 

Students who pass enough work to remain in college, but make in any 
semester a quality index of less than 1.5 will be placed on probation. Re- 

105 



I ,■ 



stricted attendance privileges apply for all courses in which such students 
are enrolled. 

Students who are on probation may be removed by making a 2.00 quality 
point index during a regular semester or during a summer session at Mill- 
saps College in which the student is enrolled for at least twelve hours 
credit. A student is asked not to re-enroll at Millsaps College if he is on 
academic probation more than two semesters during his college program. 

Disciplinary Probation — 

Students guilty of serious infractions of the regulations of the College may 
at the discretion of the appropriate dean or faculty committee be placed 
on disciplinary probation. Restricted attendance privileges may apply for 
such a student in all courses in which he is enrolled. 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

Irregular attendance is an indication to the faculty member that the student 
may be having difficulties adjusting to the work of the course or to college in 
general. The primary responsibility for counseling with students with respect to 
their absence rests with the faculty member; but in the following circumstances, the 
faculty member is expected to bring the student's unsatisfactory attendance 
record to the attention of the Dean of Students: 

1. For a freshman — whenever his total absences are equal to twice the 
number of class meetings per week. 

2. For any student — 

a. When he has been absent three successive class meetings for reasons 
unknown to the instructor. 

b. Whenever a student's absence record is such that he is in danger 
of failing the course. 

This reporting of absences to the Dean of Students is for counseling purposes 
only, and has no effect on the student's grade in the course. 

Individual faculty members decide for themselves the manner and extent 
to which absences alone will affect a student's grade. Each faculty member is 
expected to outline his policy in this respect to each class at the beginning of each 
semester. This may extend to dismissal from the course with a grade of 
"F" for reasons solely of absence. 

Absences are excusable only by the individual faculty member, but an ex- 
cused absence does not excuse the student from being responsible for the course 
work that was presented in his absence. Explanations for a student's absence 
provided by a parent, medical doctor, or a member of the faculty or administra- 
tion may be helpful to the faculty member, but such explanations are not in 
themselves excuses. This is particularly important in the case of absences in- 
volving missed examinations, late assignments, laboratory sessions and similar 
scheduled commitments. Faculty members, however, may not excuse students 
from attendance on the two days preceding and the two days following vacation 
periods without the express permission of the Associate Dean. 

Each student is responsible for becoming familiar with the general attend- 
ance policy of the College and with the particular policies operative in his classes. 
Further elaboration of the policies and procedures relating to attendance are to 
be found in the student handbook, MAJOR FACTS. 

106 



SENIOR EXEMPTIONS 

Seniors may be exempt from final examination in all subjects in which 
they have maintained a grade of C. These exemptions are allowed only at the 
end of the semester in which they complete the comprehensive examination for 
graduation. It shall be understood, however, that this exemption does not insure 
the student a final grade of C, since daily grades during the last two weeks 
shall count in the final average. Under no circumstances may a student be 
exempt from any examination in more than one term or semester. 

Students may be exempt from final examinations only in the semester in 
which they complete their comprehensive, scholastic requirements being met. 

CONDUCT 

The rules of the College require from every student decorous, sober, and 
upright conduct as long as he remains a member of the College, whether he be 
within its precincts or not. Because Millsaps students are well-known for their 
exemplary conduct, there are few stated restrictions. 

Among the few, gambling and use or possession of beverage alcohol are 
considered specific violations of College policy. Student use or possession of 
beverage alcohol on the campus or at activities sponsored by College organiza- 
tions will have serious disciplinary consequences. 

Additional policies relative to the conduct of" students are found in the 
Handbook. Students are expected to familiarize themselves with these regula- 
tions and are accountable for observance of them.

Campus Activities 



RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES 

Millsaps College, as an institution of the United Methodist Church, seeks to 
be a genuinely Christian college. The faculty is made up of scholars who are 
Christians striving to fulfill the highest ideals of personal devotion and of 
community citizenship. The religious life of the College centers around the 
churches of Jackson and the campus religious program. 

All members of the college community are invited to attend a weekly 
worship service and a Holy Communion service in the Fitzhugh Chapel. 

The Christian Council is a student group made up of representatives from 
all the religious groups on the campus. The Director of Religious Life serves 
as counselor for the group. Many denominations are represented in the student 
body. Each is given the opportunity to organize a group and given a time 
to meet. The YWCA and YMCA are given the opportunity to organize and 
promote an interdenominational program. 

Students preparing for the Christian ministry may join the Ministerial 
League, which provides programs and field work appropriate to the needs 
of students interested in Christian life work. Through its activities, the league 
provides opportunity for Christian service for its members and contributes 
much to the religious life of the campus, to the local churches, and to such 
institutions as the Methodist Children's Home and the local hospitals. 

A similar organization for young women going into full-time Christian work 
is the Women Christian Workers. Their program and activities also provide 
opportunity for worship and Christian service on and off the campus. 

There are other opportunities for worship such as communion services 
and organized prayer groups in the dormitories. These services provide op- 
portunity for participation by all students. The worship services are planned 
by the students themselves. 

There are periods of special emphasis on religion, such as Pre-Easter 
services and the J. Lloyd Desell Lectureship. The annual J. Lloyd Decell Lecture- 
ship is sponsored by all the religious groups of the campus, functioning through 
the Christian Council working with the Religious Activities Committee of the 
faculty. For this week some outstanding religious leader, familiar with student 
life and problems, addresses the student body and various groups of students 
and professors and is available for private conference with individuals. This 
series has been enriched through the J. Lloyd Decell Lecture Foundation. 

All administrators and faculty members consider it part of their responsibility 
to counsel with students about their religious life. This helps the student 
come to a mature interpretation of the total life experience. Religion is con- 
sidered a very necessary factor in this maturing process. 

The Town and Country teacher offers courses in the Religion Depart- 
ment bearing on the opportunities and responsibilities of the parish ministry. 
This teacher counsels with those students holding churches and those preparing 
to go into the active ministry. He helps them in setting up adequate programs 
in their parishes. He is interested also in the lay student who wishes to 
prepare better for active work in the church as a layman. 

Through the religious groups on the campus the students are encouraged 
to participate in the program of the Youth Fellowship in local churches. 

110 



They are also encouraged to attend important conferences, assemblies, and 
camps. Students also help in Vacation Church Schools in the summer months. 

Millsaps campus has become a conference center. Such groups as the 
Christian Vocation Conference and the Methodist Student Movement meet here 
from time to time. These groups bring religious leaders and young people 
to the campus. Campus students take advantage of such programs. 



MILLSAPS CONVOCATION SERIES 

Millsaps College recognizes that its responsibility for liberal education goes 
beyond provision of a curriculum of academic courses and credits. 

The Millsaps Convocation Series is designed to offer rich co-curricular 
opportunities to Millsaps students and to the general public, opportunities for 
awareness and appreciation of the arts, for understanding of the work of the 
various sciences, and for alertness to the intellectual and social issues which 
responsible persons must face intelligently. 

The Series consists of lectures, plays, movies, readings, concerts, recitals, 
panels, symposia, open forums, and other programs led by students, faculty, 
and visiting lecturers, performers, or public figures. AH these have to do with 
the true aim of liberal education: the liberation of the mind to grasp the world 
of nature and of human experience and action in all its richness and complexity, 
and to respond with awareness, sensitivity, concern, and mature judgment. 



ATHLETICS 

The athletic policy of Millsaps College is based on the premise that 
athletics exist for the benefit of the students and not primarily to enhance the 
prestige and publicity of the college. 

It is believed that competitive sports, conducted in an atmosphere of 
good sportsmanship and fair play, can make a significant contribution, in the 
same way as other student activities, to the complete physical, emotional, 
moral, and mental development of the well-rounded individual and that they 
are thus an integral part of a program of liberal education. Toward this 
end, an attempt is made to provide a sports-for-all program and to encourage 
as many students as possible to participate in some form of intramural or 
intercollegiate athletic competition. 

The policies followed in the intercollegiate program are established by the 
Faculty Committee on Athletics. Specific policies are: 

A. Intercollegiate Athletics 

1. The program for men includes football, basketball, baseball, tennis, golf, 
archery, and track. There is no intercollegiate program for women. 

2. The program is conducted on guidelines established by the National Col- 
legiate Athletic Association of which Millsaps College is a member. 

3. Those who participate in intercollegiate athletics are required to observe 
and maintain the same academic standards as other students. 

Ill 



4. In scheduling games, preference is given to colleges that conduct an 
athletic program on a basis similar to that at Millsaps. 

B. Intramural Athletics 

1. The program for men provides competition among campus organizations 
in basketball, volleyball, softball, tennis, track, soccer, and golf. Rules are 
made and administered by the Intramural Council, composed of student 
representatives with the Intramural Director as an ex-officio member. 

2. The program for women is administered by a faculty Director, assisted 
by the Majorette Club, whose student members head the teams that 
compete in such sports as badminton, volleyball, tennis, basketball, and 
Softball. Election to this club provides recognition for athletic partici- 
pation. 

C. Athletic Facilities 

1. The gymnasium provides a large playing floor for volleyball, badminton, 
and basketball. It has dressing rooms for all teams, a room for visiting 
teams, trainer's room complete with equipment for injuries, a class room, 
and shower and locker rooms for students. 

2. The baseball diamond, separate from the football field, is also used as 
the intramural soccer field. There are also softball diamonds. 

3. Five tennis courts are situated near the gymnasium. 

4. A nine-hole golf course is available for use by all students. 



SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS 

Social events play an important part in student life at Millsaps. The social 
organizations are founded on the belief that man is a social being and enjoys 
fellowship. They strive for high ideals and make a valuable contribution to 
the college and the individual in teaching students to live together. 

CAMPUS ACTIVITIES 

There are four fraternities and four sororities at Millsaps. The fraternities 
and sororities are all members of well-established national Greek-letter organiza- 
tions. 

The sororities are Chi Omega, Kappa Delta, 

Phi Mu, and Zeta Tau Alpha. 
The fraternities are Kappa Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Lambda 
Chi Alpha, and Pi Kappa Alpha. 

Policies governing sorority and fraternity life are formulated through the 
Panhellenic Council and the Interfraternity Council in cooperation with the 
Committee on Social Organizations. 

Fraternities and sororities select students for membership during a week 
of school known as Rush Week. At the end of Rush Week these organizations 
offer "bids" to the students whom they have selected. Eligibility for member- 
ship in sororities and fraternities is governed by the following regulations: 

A. General Conditions

its prospective initiates from the Registrar prior to the initiation cere- 
monies. 

4. Only persons who are bona fide students at Millsaps at initiation time can

Physical and 
Financial Resources 



BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

The campus, covering nearly 100 acres in the center of a beautiful residential 
section and on one of the highest points in the city, is valued at approximately 
eight million dollars. 

The administration building, Murrah Hall, was erected in 1914; the Sul- 
livan-Harrell Science Hall in 1928; and the Buie Memorial Gymnasium in 
1936. The James Observatory provides excellent facilities for students of 
astronomy and is also made available on frequent occasions to the citizens of 
Jackson and surrounding areas. Recent grants and gifts have made possible 
the addition of completely modern equipment for the science laboratories. 

The Christian Center Building was completed in 1950. It was made pos- 
sible by the gifts of Mississippi Methodists, alumni, and friends of the College. 
This building has an auditorium seating more than 1000 persons, a small 
chapel, classrooms, and offices. In 1967 the stage was renovated into a modern 
theatre stage. Seminar rooms and faculty offices were added. The whole 
building was air-conditioned. 

In 1955 the Carnegie-Millsaps Library was modernized and enlarged to 
three times its former size. It was the first building to be constructed with 
the Million-for-Millsaps funds and has been renamed the Millsaps-Wilson 
Library. 

A building completed in 1957, also financed from the MUlion-for-MiUsaps 
funds, is the Boyd Campbell Student Center. This building houses the offices 
of the Dean of Students, the Dean of Women, the Dean of Men, the Director 
of Religious Life, the food services, the bookstore, the post office, the student 
activity quarters, and recreation area. 

There are air-conditioned dormitories for both men and women students. 
A dormitory for women, Becky Bacot Hall, and one for men were opened in 
the fall of 1966. Fae Franklin for women and Ezelle for men were opened 
in 1958. These buildings are modem and convenient. Whitworth and Sanders 
Halls also house women students. 

The " Sullivan-Harrell Science Hall was completely renovated, expanded, 
and modernized in 1963, creating the Millsaps College Science Center. The 
furnishings and new equipment were designated a memorial to Dr. Joseph 
Bailey Price. A part of the funds from the Seventy-fifth Anniversary Develop- 
ment Program was used in this renovation. 

A new $2.8 million Academic Complex will be completed by the fall of 
1970 and start functioning as a teaching unit. The three-story building will 
serve a double purpose. It will house the music, art, computer, business and 
library departments and also serve as a car park for 170 vehicles. 

Included in the new structure's facilities are a recital hall capable of seating 
450 which can be converted to a theatre-in-the-round, a skylit art studio, a 
listening laboratory, and a music library. 

The campus contains fields for football and baseball, a track, tennis courts, 
and a nine-hole golf course. 

FINANCIAL RESOURCES 

The productive endowment, according to the latest audit, amounted to 
$6,022,839. In addition to the income from this endowment, the college budget 
receives from the two Methodist Conferences in Mississippi $120,000 annually. 

122 



The statement of total assets derived from the last official audit, June 1969, 

is as follows: 

Current Fund $ 26 1 ,450 

Endowment Funds 6,022,839 

Loan Funds 687,298 

Plant Fund 7,793,080 

Total -_ - - - $14,764,667 

W. K. KELLOGG FOUNDATION 

In 1962 the W. K. Kellogg Foundation of Battle Creek, Michigan, made a 
generous grant of $10,000 for the purpose of improving the quality of the teacher 
preparation program at Millsaps College through finincial assistance toward the 
acquisition of books and other library materials. These funds have enabled the 
College to assemble a special collection of materials which are housed in a 
separate collection in the main library for use in conjunction with classes and 
seminars in the Department of Education. They are also available for general 
use by interested members of the student body and staff. The Kellogg Collection 
provides a unique opportunity for the use of elementary and secondary school 
literature and materials in regular classroom situatiojis. 

FORD FOUNDATION CHALLENGE GRANT 

One of the most significant events in the history of the College occurred 
early in 1966 when the Trustees of the Ford Foundation invited Millsaps College 
to apply for a Challenge Grant. After an exhaustive investigation a grant of 
$1,500,000 was offered to the College in June of that year. This nationally 
recognized grant expresses confidence in the quality of academic excellence to 
which Millsaps has been dedicated since its founding and in the current leader- 
ship and future progress of the College. Such grants have been made to fewer 
than 75 four-year colleges in the nation and to less than a dozen in the midsouth 
region. 

The $1.5 million grant is unrestricted and is intended for general support 
of the College. In order to receive the full amount, Millsaps was required to 
raise funds from other sources in the ratio of 2V2 to 1. The "Toward a Destiny 
of Excellence" program was launched for this purpose in 1967. This program, 
the largest capital funds campaign ever undertaken by a private Mississippi 
institution, was successfully completed on June 30, 1969, with over $5,500,000 
secured from all sources. 

THE MILLSAPS-WILSON LIBRARY 

The Library of Millsaps College currently contains over 80,000 volumes 
and approximately 700 periodical subscriptions. By the Fall of 1970 these hold- 
ings will be housed in a facility which will allow a doubling of the book 
collection and seating accommodations. This facility will provide additional space 
for individual study carrels and rooms, browsing and lounge areas, and audio- 
visual materials. 

The library was begun in 1905 on a grant of Andrew Carnegie and an 
endowment of Major Millsaps. In 1925 the Carnegie Corporation provided the 
funds for a new building which was redecorated in 1944. 

The present enlarged and remodeled building was dedicated in September 
of 1955, a result of the Million for Millsaps Campaign and the generosity of 
the H. J. Wilson family. 

123 



Special collections in the library include the Lehman Engel Collection of 
books, manuscripts, recordings, art objects and correspondence relating to the 
theatre and the arts; and the Mississippi Methodist Archives, administered by 
Dr. J. B. Cain. 

The library hours are as follows: Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 
10:00 p.m.; Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Saturday, 9:00 to 5:00 p.m.; 
Sunday, 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The library is closed during Thanksgiving, 
Christmas, and Spring holidays.
