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 dedicated 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 in- 
fluence which no other type of institution can offer. The college provides a con- 
genial 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 modern 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 modern society is that in too 
many cases training as expert technicians has not been accompanied by educa- 
tion for good citizenship. It offers, therefore, professional and pre-professional train- 
ing 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 attitude of con- 
tinuing 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 develop- 
ment. 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.

Trustees of Millsaps College, 1955-56

prospective students 




HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE 

Millsaps College was founded in 1 890 by the Methodist Church as a "Christian col- 
lege for young men." The philanthropy of Major Reuben Webster Millsaps and other 
Methodist leaders in Mississippi enabled the college to open two years later on the out- 
skirts of Jackson, the state capital, a town of some 9,000 population. The beginnings 
were modest: two buildings, 149 students (two-thirds of whom were enrolled in a 
preparatory school), five instructors, and an endowment of $70,432. Fifty years later, 
the student body numbered 599 and the faculty had increased to 33. Women were 
admitted at an early date and the graduation of Sing Ung Zung of Soochow, China, 
in 1908, began a tradition of the college's influence beyond the borders of the state. 

Millsaps' first president, William Belton Murrah, served until 1910. Other presidents 
have been: David Carlisle Hull (1910-191 2), Dr. Alexander Farrar Watkins (1912-1 923), 
Dr. David Martin Key (1923-1938), Dr. Marion Lofton Smith (1938-1952), Dr. Homer 
Ellis Finger, Jr., (1952-64), Dr. Benjamin Barnes Graves (1965-1970), and Dr. Edward 
McDaniel Collins, Jr. (1970-1978). Dr. George Marion Harmon was named president 
in the fall of 1978. 

GENERAL INFORMATION 

The close personal relationship among students, faculty and the administration is 
one of the most vital parts of the Millsaps experience. A liberal arts college designed 
to train students for responsible citizenship and well-balanced lives, Millsaps offers pro- 
fessional and pre-professional training coupled with cultural and disciplinary studies. 
Students are selected on the basis of their ability to think, desire to learn, good moral 
character and intellectual maturity. The primary consideration for admission is the abili- 
ty to do college work satisfactory to the college and beneficial to the student. 

Millsaps' 1 ,200-member student body represents about 30 states and several foreign 
countries. Students come from 25 religious denominations. All are urged to take ad- 
vantage of the educational and cultural offerings of Mississippi's capital city of Jackson. 

Research facilities available are: the State Department of Archives and History, the 
State Library, the library of the State Department of Health, and the Jackson Public 
Library. Together, they provide research facilities found nowhere else in the state. Cultural 
advantages include: the Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Mississippi, New Stage 
Theatre, Mississippi Opera Association, and musical, dramatic, and sporting events held 
at the City Auditorium and the Mississippi Coliseum. 

Millsaps is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools 
and approved by the American Association of University Women and the University 
Senate of the United Methodist Church. It is recognized by the General Board of Educa- 
tion of the United Methodist Church as one of its strongest institutions. 

THE MILLSAPS-WILSON LIBRARY 

The Millsaps-Wilson Library has more than 200,000 volumes and 650 periodical 
subscriptions. It provides individual study carrels and rooms as well as browsing and 
lounge areas. There is a collection of audio-visual materials and listening facilities. Special 
collections are: the Lehman Engel Collection of books, manuscripts, recordings, and 
correspondence relating to the theatre and the arts; the Mississippi Methodist Archives; 
a rare book collection; the Kellogg Collection of juvenile books and curriculum materials; 
U.S. government documents; and the Millsaps Archives. The library belongs to the Central 
Mississippi Library Council and the Southeastern Library Network. 

THE COMPUTING CENTER 

In today's complex society, students need to be able to understand the role of the 
computer. Accordingly, a good college must have a strong computing resource. Millsaps 
has one of the finest computing facilities available for easy student access. From several 
terminal cluster locations on campus, students and faculty can use the Digital PDP-1 1 
RSTS/E timesharing computer system which is located in the Academic Complex. Ad- 
ditional resources are the PDP-8/e laboratory and teaching computer and the EAI-TR20 
analog computer which are located in Sullivan-Harrell Hall. 



BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

The 100-acre campus is valued at about $30 million. Chief administrative offices 
are in Whitworth Hall. Murrah Hall, built in 1914, has been recently renovated to house 
the School of Management. Sullivan-Harrell Science Hail was built in 1928 and was 
renovated in 1963 to house the science program. 

The Christian Center, completed in 1950, was built with gifts from Mississippi 
Methodists, alumni, and friends. It has a 1,000-seat auditorium, a small chapel, 
classrooms, and offices. In 1 967, the stage was renovated into a modern theatre stage. 

The James Observatory is an historical landmark located on the northwest corner 
of the campus. 

The Physical Activities Center, dedicated in 1 974, has courts for basketball, tennis, 
badminton, and volleyball. Weight-training and physical therapy rooms are also includ- 
ed in this multi-purpose facility. An outdoor swimming pool is adjacent to this facility. 
Other athletic facilities include tennis courts and fields for football, baseball, soccer, and 
track. 

The Boyd Campbell Student Center houses the Office of Student Affairs, the 
bookstore, post office, student activity quarters and a recreation area. The grill and din- 
ing hall are located in the student center also. 

There are three residence halls for women and two for men. All are air conditioned. 

The Academic Complex, completed in 1971 , includes a recital hall in which is located 
a 41 -rank Mohler organ. The complex houses Music, Art, Political Science, Computer 
Services, Business Office, Office of Records, Business Affairs and Continuing Educa- 
tion. It also contains sky-lit art studios, a student computer terminal room, a music 
laboratory and classrooms.

with at least 1 2 units of English, mathematics, social studies, natural sciences or foreign 
language. Four units of English should be included.

Educational Development Tests (G.E.D.) along with a transcript of work completed 
in lieu of requirements set forth in paragraph one (a).

Test (A.C.T.) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (S.A.T.) may be required. 

3. Early Admission 

(a) Students who are nearing high school graduation, but choose to enter college 
before graduation, may apply by submitting an official transcript and results of the 
American College Test (A.C.T.) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (S.A.T.). 

(b) At least 12 units in English, mathematics, social studies, natural sciences, or foreign 
languages must be included. Normally, four units of English are required. 



Transfer Admission 

A transfer student is one entering Millsaps as a full-tinne student from another in- 
stitution of higher learning. A completed application for admission and transcripts showing 
all work attempted at other colleges or universities are required. These policies apply 
to the transfer applicant: 

1. Full credit is normally allowed for work taken at other accredited institutions. Some 
courses which are not regarded as consistent with a liberal arts curriculum may not 
be credited toward a degree. Work done at non-accredited institutions may be 
validated if the student makes a satisfactory record at Millsaps. 

2. After earning 62 semester hours at a junior or senior college, a student may not 
take additional work at a junior college and have it apply toward a degree from Millsaps 
College. 

3. A student must complete the work necessary to fulfill requirements for a major at 
Millsaps or for pre-professional work or teaching licenses. 

4. Grades and quality points earned at another institution will be recorded as they are 
on the transcript. The student must earn at Millsaps quality points at least double 
the number of hours of academic credit remaining on graduation requirements after 
transfer credits are entered. 

5. In the case of a student transferring to Millsaps with more than three but less than 
six hours credit in a required subject, the head of the department concerned may 
approve a three-hour elective in that department as a substitute for the remainder 
of the required course. 

6. The student is subject to the regulation on advanced placement and credit by 
examination. 

7. Credit is not given for correspondence courses. 

Part-Time Admission 

A part-time student is one enrolled in a degree program but taking fewer than 12 
hours. Requirements for admission and policies pertaining to part-time students are the 
same as those for full-time students. 

Special Student Admission 

A special student is one enrolled in a non-degree program. Applicants should sub- 
mit the Special Student Application Form along with the application fee to the Office 
of Continuing Education. Transcripts of all academic work attempted must be provided 
the Office of Records prior to the end of the first month of enrollment. The following 
policies apply to special students: 

1. Special students are expected to be 21 years of age and must present evidence 
of good character and maturity. Age requirements may be waived. 

2. Special students may enroll for any courses without regard to graduation require- 
ments, but must meet prerequisites for courses chosen. 

3. Special students wishing to apply for a degree program must re-apply, provide full 
credentials and meet admission requirements for degree students. 

4. Special students may not participate in extracurricular activities.

submitted well in advance of the semester in which one expects to enroll. They are:

4. Letters of recommendation from two persons 

5. The application fee 

6. A statement of resources for financial support while in the U.S. 



Financial assistance is not available to international students so they must come 
prepared to pay the full cost of attending Millsaps and to support themselves during 
periods when the college is closed. 

Readmission 

Students who leave the college for one semester or longer may apply for readmis- 
sion by completing the appropriate forms for the program in which they wish to enroll. 
Those who are absent for more than four years may be required to meet graduation 
requirements in effect at the time of readmission or do additional work in their major 
in order to qualify for a degree. 

Advanced Placement and Credit by Examination 

Students entering Millsaps College may earn a waiver of certain requirements or 
college credit as a result of their performance on specific examinations. The amount 
of waiver or credit is limited to eight hours in any discipline and to 18 hours overall, 
with the exception of the Adult Degree Program where the limits are 12 and 30 hours 
respectively. 

Scores on the appropriate C.L.E.P. subject matter examination, Advanced Place- 
ment examination, or C.E.E.B. achievement test should be sent to the Office of Records 
for evaluation. If a waiver of requirements or credit is granted, the score on the examina- 
tion used will be recorded on the student's record in lieu of a letter grade. An administrative 
fee will be assessed for each course so recorded. (See the section on Special Fees.) 

Listed below are the Millsaps courses for which credit is given for Advanced Place- 
ment courses taken in high school and the score required in order to earn that credit. 
In some cases, maximum credit is only given following satisfactory completion of a 
Millsaps course in the same field.

For information concerning scores necessary to attain course credit for other ex-

department chairman or the dean of the college. 



APPLYING FOR ADMISSION 

Prospective students should apply for admission well in advance of the date on 
which they wish to enter, particularly if housing accommodations on the campus are 
desired. The Admissions Committee acts on applications for both the spring and fall 
semesters as credentials are completed. 



In applying for admission a prospective student should follow this procedure: 

1 . Subnnit a completed application for admission form with the application fee to the 
director of admissions. The fee is not refunded to a student unless the application 
is not approved. 

2. Request the high school principal or college registrar to send an official transcript 
directly to the director of admissions. 

(a) Transfers must include a transcript from every college or university attended. 

(b) A prospective student enrolled in school at the time of application for admis- 
sion should have a transcript sent showing credits up to that time. A sup- 
plementary transcript will be required after admission. 

3. Freshman applicants must submit results of either the American College Test (A.C.T.) 
or Scholastic Aptitude Test (S.A.T.) 

Applicants to the Adult Degree Program should apply directly to the director of 
the Adult Degree Program. Applicants for the Master of Business Administration 
degree should apply directly to the director of the MBA Program. 

COUNSELING PROGRAM 

Counseling services are designed to help students accomplish maximum success 
in their academic work. Many members of the college community participate in counsel- 
ing, and specialists are used as referral resources when problems require specialized 
therapy. 

Pre-Registration Counseling: The college provides counseling services to any pro- 
spective student who wants to explore vocational and educational objectives before 
entering classes in the fall. Students who are admitted are urged to take advantage 
of this service. 

Orientation: Freshmen and transfer students are expected to be on campus on dates 
specified in the college calendar. Orientation is planned and carried out cooperatively 
by students and faculty to help entering students prepare for campus life. 
Faculty Advisors: New students are assigned to faculty members who serve as 
academic advisors. When a student chooses the major field, a professor in that field 
becomes the advisor. 

Personal Counseling: The Office of Student Affairs counsels students on vocational 
choices, selection of fields of study, study and reading skills, emotional adjustments and 
related matters. 

Testing: An individual testing service is available to help with self-analysis and plan- 
ning in terms of interests. 



STUDENT HOUSING 

The dean and associate dean of student affairs coordinate housing in cooperation 
with residence hall directors and resident assistants. Men who are active members of 
a fraternity may live in its house after their freshman year. 

All freshman men and women, unless they are married or live with members of 
their immediate families in Jackson or vicinity, are required to reside on campus in col- 
lege residence halls and to dine on campus, also. Exceptions to this policy are unusual 
and must be authorized through the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs. 

Residence hall rooms are designed to house two students each. Students wishing 
to room together should make every effort to pay room deposits at the same time and 
to specify their desire to room together. Single rooms are limited and a student desiring 
a single room should pay his room reservation fee as early as possible. Assignments 
are made in the order in which this fee or a completed application is received, whichever 
is later. Room preferences are honored unless the rooms are already taken by students 
who are eligible for them. Room rent cannot be refunded after the semester begins. 

The quiet wing option is offered for students who wish to live in an environment 
where study is possible 24 hours a day. 



10 



Residence halls open at 10 a.m. on the day preceding each term and close at 10 
a.m. on the day following the last scheduled examination of each term. For Thanksgiving 
and spring holidays, the residence halls will close at 3 p.m. on the last day of sched- 
uled classes and reopen at noon on the day preceding the resumption of classes. 
Students are not housed in the residence halls during Thanksgiving, Christmas, or spring 
holidays. 

MEDICAL SERVICES 

Millsaps provides medical services to its students who are suffering from minor 
illnesses. The services are limited to students living in Millsaps residence halls and frater- 
nity houses. Medical services through the college physician are available through the 
nurse on duty or, in her absence, one of the residence hall directors or the Office of 
Student Affairs. 

The college pays for the initial visit to the college physician for each illness. 

CAREER PLANNING AND PLACEMENT SERVICES 

Career planning begins with the freshman year and is pursued, via testing, advis- 
ing, counseling, seminars, internships, externships and on-campus interviewing, through 
the senior year. Special workshops are offered throughout the year on resume writing, 
interview preparation, career opportunities, job search techniques and summer employ- 
ment. "SAPS", a career advisory network, pairs Millsaps students with professional alumni 
and gives students a chance to gain firsthand exposure to a variety of professions and 
career options. 

Part-time positions both on and off campus are available through the Career Plan- 
ning & Placement Office. Millsaps College has an excellent reputation with the Jackson 
business community based on past employment experiences with Millsaps students. 

Placement files, containing credentials, are maintained for interested students and 
alumni at no charge. 

STUDENT RECORDS 

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, Millsaps 
College students have the right to review, inspect, and challenge the accuracy of infor- 
mation kept in a cumulative file by the institution. It also ensures that records cannot 
be released without the written consent of the student except in the following situations: 

(a) to school officials and faculty who have a legitimate educational interest, such as 
a faculty advisor; 

(b) where the information is classified as "directory information." The following 
categories of information have been designated by Millsaps College as direc- 
tory information: name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, ma- 
jor field of study, participation in officially recognized activites and sports, weight 
and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and 
awards received, the most recent previous educational institution attended by 
the student, and information needed for honors and awards. If you do not wish 
such information released without your consent you should notify the Office of 
Records in writing prior to the end of the first day of classes. 

For a full statement of policy concerning the confidentiality of student records, con- 
sult the staff of the Office of Records or the Office of Student Affairs. 

CHILDREN'S CENTER 

The Education Department offers a laboratory school for children ages two to five. 
The school is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. -noon. In addition, there is a 
drop-in service for infants and children of Millsaps students. The hours for this service 
are 7:45 a.m. -5 p.m. 

The location of the Children's Center is 604 Webster St.

plete the Guaranteed Student Loan Application for the Agency of his or her home state 
and a Financial Aid Form (and the Guaranteed Student Loan Needs Test, if the family 
adjusted gross income is over $30,000.00) He/she sends the Financial Aid Form to the 
College Scholarship Service listing Millsaps as the recipient. The student should send 
the Guaranteed Loan Application to Millsaps so that the college can complete its por- 
tion of this form. Once the student and college officials have completed their portions, 
the student should then take the completed form to a lender (a Credit Union, Bank, 
Savings and Loan, and any other lending institution). If the student can not find a lender, 
he/she should contact the financial aid office at Millsaps. The interest on these loans 
varies between 7, 8 and 9 percent. If the student qualifies the federal government will

financial need. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are provided by the federal 
government to provide supplemental grants to other aid to assist in making available 
the benefits of higher education to qualified students of exceptional financial need who, 
for lack of financial means of their own or their families, would be unable to obtain an 
education without such aid. 

The Pell Grant was established by the Educational Amendments of 1972 and is 
funded by the federal government. When the grant is fully funded, each student is en- 
titled each academic year to a grant of $1 ,800 less family contribution (method of deter-

Student life 




CAMPUS MINISTRY 

Religious life at Millsaps centers around the churches of the city of Jackson and 
the religious life program coordinated through the Campus Ministry Team. Churches 
provide communities of faith for students, faculty, and staff. The campus religious life 
program works to enhance the spiritual growth of members of the community. The em- 
phasis is on the development of values and insights related to one's religious life that 
are formed by a keen awareness of the world and are shaped by struggling with fun- 
damental questions about the nature of belief and of a religious lifestyle. 

To meet these goals, the campus ministry program at Millsaps utilizes as fully as 
possible the experiences of students in the classroom and in their relationships to their 
peers, both being situations which raise basic questions about intellectual and spiritual 
growth and about the link between faith and life. Thus, programs concerning the rela- 
tionship of faith to issues raised in the classroom are an integral part of the religious 
life program of the college. Further, such established programs as the Student Sym- 
posium and the Friday Forum Series are utilized to provide religious perspectives on 
critical issues. 

Campus ministry at Millsaps is coordinated through the Campus Ministry Team, 
a group of about 35 students, faculty and staff persons who plan for the college com- 
munity. The team works through several committees: Chapel Committee, Human Rights 
Committee, Special Ministries Committee and Voluntary Service Committee. 

The campus ministry program at Millsaps is ecumenical. St. Peter's Catholic 
Cathedral provides a staff person to the Millsaps campus who works with Catholic 
students and in the larger life of the college. Intervarsity Christian Fellowship regularly 
works with a group of students. All programming is ecumenical in terms of participation 
and resource people. 

The Office of the Chaplain serves as a liaison with churches, the United Methodist 
conferences, and other groups and agencies in the city and state. The chaplain works 
with students who serve internships with the Methodist Building staff, provides resources 
for events on and off campus related to various campus ministry concerns, and actively 
participates in the work of the United Methodist conferences to which the college relates. 

PUBLIC EVENTS COMMITTEE 

The Public Events Committee receives funds from the student government to sponsor 
programs of general interest to the campus and community. Its major activity is the Fri- 
day Forum Series— a continuing slate of speakers presented each Friday during the 
academic year. The objective of the series is to provide information and stimulate in- 
terest in current issues, to explore historical events, and to present differing perspec- 
tives on controversial subjects. Faculty members, local authorities and national experts 
are invited to present their thoughts on a variety of literary, cultural, scientific, political, 
religious and historical topics. 

In addition to the Forum Series, the Public Events Committee sponsors special events 
throughout the academic year. It provides funds to student organizations and academic 
departments interested in organizing programs open to the entire campus. These in- 
clude films, guest speakers, and music recitals. 

All of these activities 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. 



24 



Competitive sports conducted in an atmosphere of good sportsmanslnip and fair 
play can make a significant contribution to the complete pliysical, emotional, moral, and 
mental development of the well-rounded individual. They are thus an integral part of 
a program of liberal education. An attempt is made to provide a sports-for-all program 
and to encourage as many students as possible to participate. 

Intercollegiate 

The program for men includes football, basketball, baseball, tennis, and soccer. 
The women's program includes basketball and tennis. 

The programs are conducted on guidelines established by the National Collegiate 
Athletic Association of which Millsaps College is a member. 

Those who participate in intercollegiate athletics are required to observe and main- 
tain the same academic standards as other students. 

Intramural 

The program for men provides competition among campus organizations in basket- 
ball, volleyball, softball, tennis, and soccer. The program for women includes touch foot- 
ball, volleyball, tennis, basketball, softball, and soccer. 

PUBLICATIONS 

The Purple and White is the official student newspaper of the college, and its staff 
is composed of individuals interested in campus journalism. The P&W endeavors to 
provide coverage of all Millsaps events, as well as to serve as a forum for discussion 
and exploration of ideas. 

Now in its seventy-seventh year, the Bobashela is the annual student publication 
of Millsaps College, attempting to give a comprehensive view of campus life. Bobashela 
is an Indian name for good friend. 

Through Stylus, the college literary magazine, students interested in creative writing 
are given an opportunity to see their work in print. The publication comes out twice each 
year and contains the best poetry, short stories and essays submitted by Millsaps 
students. 

MUSIC AND DRAMA 
The Millsaps Singers 

Open by audition to all students, the Singers represent Millsaps in public perfor- 
mances, campus programs and annual tours throughout the state and other areas of 
the United States. In recent years the choir has traveled to Colorado; to Washington, 
D.C.; to Atlanta to record for the National Protestant Hour; and to Mexico. The choir 
has sung with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra three times, the Jackson Symphony 
many times, the Chicago Chamber Orchestra and the New Orleans Philharmonic. 
Membership earns two semester hours of activity credit for the year's work. 

The 1983-84 concert season will include the annual performance of Handel's 
Messiah, an in-state tour of Mississippi, two performances with the Jackson Symphony, 
and a performance of Orffs Carmina Burana for the Millsaps Arts and Lecture Series. 

The Troubadours 

Auditions are held each fall for membership in the Troubadours, a show choir of 
16 students selected from the Singers. The Troubadours represent the college at 
numerous campus, high school, and cultural functions throughout the state. 



25 



The Miilsaps Players 

The Miilsaps Players produce four full-length plays each year. In addition, they pre- 
sent several one-act plays directed by senior theatre majors. Casting for all plays is done 
by audition, open to all students. Participation in Players productions, either onstage 
or backstage, earns credit toward nnembership in Alpha Psi Onnega, national honorary 
drannatics fraternity. Among the major productions staged in recent years are A Cry 
of Players, Othello, The MatchrDaker, Picnic, Hay Fever, Paint Your Wagon, Charley's 
Aunt, Camelot, Look Back in Anger, Candida, Damn Yankees, Dangerous Corner, The 
Merchant of Venice, Nude with Violin, The Winslow Boy, Equus and A ^/lidsummer 
Night's Dream. 

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 

Student Association 

All regularly enrolled students of Miilsaps are members of the Student Association. 
Those taking at least 12 hours or part-time students who pay the Student Association 
fee have full power of voting. The Miilsaps Student Association is governed by the Stu- 
dent Senate, the Student Judicial Council, and the Student Executive Board. The Stu- 
dent Senate is composed of 35 voting members elected from the Miilsaps Student 
Association. Members of the Student Senate are chosen by the third Tuesday in 
September and serve their constituency the length of the academic year.

with special meetings called by the secretary at the request of 1) the president of the 
Senate, 2) the Senate, 3) seven members of the Senate, 4) the president of the college. 

The duties and functions of the Student Senate are to exercise legislative power 
over those areas of collegiate activity that are the responsibility of students and to speak 
for the Student Association on all matters of student concern. In addition the Student 
Senate is responsible for 1) apportioning funds collected by the college as Student 
Association fees; 2) granting or revoking charters to student organizations; 3) formulating 
rules of social and dormitory conduct; 4) supervising student elections; and 5) carrying 
out traditional class responsibilities. 

The Judicial Council is composed of eight voting members in addition to the two 
student alternate members. Members are appointed as follows: two faculty members 
appointed by the vice president and dean of the college with the approval of the presi- 
dent; one administrative staff member appointed by the president; five student members 
and two student alternate members appointed by the Student Executive Board and con- 
firmed by the Student Senate. The dean of student affairs serves as the non-voting 
secretary, and the associate dean of student affairs serves in a non-voting capacity. 

The Judicial Council generally has jurisdiction over student disciplinary cases. Limita- 
tions of its authority are delineated in the constitution of the Miilsaps College Student 
Association which is printed in the student handbook.

8. Residence Requirements: 

To qualify for graduation from Millsaps, 30 of the last 36 fiours of academic work 
must be done in residence as a degree-seeking student. The three exceptions allowed 
to this rule are: (1) pre-engineering dual-degree program students may transfer back 
as many as 31 hours, (2) students who have been approved for the prescribed pre- 
medical technologist program may take the last 26 hours at the affiliated institution and 
(3) students leaving to enter professional school may transfer back the final 26 hours 
of work (in this case, however, residence will be required at Millsaps for the second 
semester of the junior year). 

9. English Proficiency Requirement: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree each student is required to demonstrate pro- 
ficiency 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. Students who made 
grades of A or B on English 101-102, 103-104, or 105 at Millsaps are exempted from 
this examination. Students may also demonstrate the required proficiency in Liberal 
Studies 100. 

The examination is given by the English Department twice in the academic year. 
The regular administration is on the second Thursday in November from 4 to 6:30 p.m. 
A special administration of the examination is given on the second Thursday in March 
from 4 to 6:30 p.m. to seniors who hope to graduate but who have not passed the Junior 
English Proficiency Examination. Seniors who fail the special examination and who think 
they have compelling cause may petition the dean of the college 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 be present for the November administra- 
tion of the proficiency examination. 

Each student who fails the examination in November is assigned to a member of 
the English Department for remedial instruction. 

10. Majors: 

In addition to taking the prescribed work for the degree, the student must major 
in one of the following areas: accounting, art, business administration, biology, chemistry, 
church music, classics, computer studies, economics, education, English, French, 
geology, German, history, mathematics, music, philosophy, physics, political science, 
psychology, religion, sociology, Spanish, or theatre. For students pursuing the B.L.S. 
degree an interdisciplinary major is also possible with the consent of the appropriate 
departments. 

Specific requirements for the major can be found under the appropriate depart- 
ment of instruction. Students may be permitted to major in a subject only after careful 
consideration and with the consent of the chairman of the department. 

A major for each student must be approved no later than the beginning of the junior 
year and the proper forms submitted to the Office of Records. All work to be applied 
toward the major must be approved in advance by the department chairman or the 
student's major professor. 

A student may have more than one major by completing the requirements in the 
departments involved. 

11. Minors: 

While there is no requirement that students complete a minor as a part of their degree, 
they may elect a minor in those departments which offer one. 

Ordinarily a student must have a minimum of 12 hours in a department beyond 
what is used to meet degree requirements in order to qualify for a minor. A minimum 
of eight hours toward the minor must be taken at Millsaps. Specific requirements for 
a particular minor can be found under the appropriate department of instruction. 



34 



12. Comprehensive Examinations: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student nnust pass a satisfactory conn- 
prehensive examination in the 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 understanding 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 conducted 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. 

Students may take the comprehensive examination only if the courses in which they 
have credit and in which they are currently enrolled are those which fulfill the requirements 
in their major department. They may take the examination in the spring semester if they 
are 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. 

13. Quality Index Required: 

A minimum of 240 quality points is required for the B.A., B.S., B.B.A., B.L.S., and 
B.S. Ed. degrees; 248 for the B.M. degree. An overall quality point index of 2.00 is re- 
quired of all students. Transfer students must have at least a quality point index of 2.00 
on their Millsaps work. The index is always calculated on the total number of academic 
hours attempted; however, an exception to the rule of hours attempted is allowed in 
instances where courses are repeated at Millsaps. (See Section Grades, Honors, Class 
Standing.) 

14. Application for a Degree: 

Each student who is a candidate for a degree is required to submit a written ap- 
plication for the degree by November 1 of the academic year of graduation. This date 
will apply also to students who plan to complete their work in the summer session. Forms 
for degree applications are to be secured and filed in the Office of Records. 

15. Requirements for a Second Degree: 

In order to earn a second degree from Millsaps College a student must have 30 
additional semester hours of work beyond the 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. 

16. Required Sequence of Courses for All Regular Students: 

Freshmen students shall enroll in the appropriate course in English composition 
(unless exempt by examination) and in at least one other prescribed course as listed 
in the Core Curriculum or the Additional Degree Requirements. 

Sophomore students shall enroll in at least two prescribed courses as listed in the 
Core Curriculum or the Additional Degree Requirements. 

Enrollment in the required language courses will begin not later than the first semester 
of the junior year. It is recommended that language be started in the freshman or 
sophomore year. Those freshmen who, by virtue of previous study, plan to satisfy the 
language requirement taking courses at the intermediate level only, are strongly ad- 
vised to being such courses in the freshman year while their experience in the language 
chosen is recent. 



35 



PRE-MEDICAL AND PRE-DENTAL 

It is the responsibility of the pre-medical and pre-dental students to consult the 
catalogs of the schools to which they wish to apply for their specific requirements. The 
following courses are required by many medical and dental schools. 

Biology 121-122 8 hours Mathematics 115-116 or 115-108 8 hours 

Chemistry 121-122, 123-124. 8 hours Physics 111-112 or 131-132 in addition 

Chemistry 231-232, 233-234.10 hours to 151-152 8 hours 

English 101-102 6 hours 

The student is urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory Com- 
mittee (Al Berry, George Beardsley, Robert Bergmark, Susan Howell, James McKeown 
and Edmond Venator) in designing a program that will fit 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 interest. This catalog should 
be consulted elsewhere for the exact major and degree requirements. Millsaps and most 
medical and dental schools also strongly recommend that the student develop a sound 
background in the humanities and social sciences. 

Some medical and dental schools will not accept credit in laboratory science courses 
obtained by C.L.E.P. or advanced placement tests. If the student plans to obtain such 
credit, he should first consult the medical or dental schools in which he has an interest 
to be certain that the school will accept such credit. 

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

Biology 251, 301, 381, 383, 391 or 315 

Chemistry 251-253, 264-266 or 363-365, 364-366 

English 201-202 or 203-204 

Economics and Business Administration 

Foreign Language (reading knowledge) 

History 101-102 

Mathematics 223-224 or 225-226 

Philosophy 

Physics 301 , 306, 311,31 5, or 31 6 

Psychology 303, 307 

Sociology 

The Heritage Program gives the student a more flexible schedule and time to take 
additional courses of interest and need. 

PREPARATION FOR MINISTRY 

A program for students planning for or interested in exploring a form of 

professional Christian ministry 

Millsaps College has enjoyed a tradition of close involvement with students from 
all denominations and faiths- particularly from The United Methodist Church-whose 
vocational goal or interest was a form of professional Christian ministry. The Prepara- 
tion for Ministry Program is designed to offer a wide variety of experiences for persons 
who have decided on or would like to explore some form of Christian ministry as a per- 
sonal vocation. The specific purposes of the program are as follows: 

a. To encourage personal grov\^h in relation to self and other persons. 

b. To explore meanings and forms of ministry and to encourage openness to the 
many ways that the Christian Gospel speaks to human beings and their worlds. 



36 



c. To keep students closely in touch with the resources and personnel of their de- 
nomination or faith, and to serve as a liaison with key administrative persons of 
these bodies. 

d. To support students who wish to explore some form of professional ministry as 
a possibility for themselves. 

e. To assist students in developing a vision for their own ministry. 

f. To involve students in various types of competency training relevant to pro- 
fessional ministry. 

g. To provide a supportive, encouraging community for students planning for or 
interested in professional ministry. 

The Preparation for Ministry Program provides a basic link between the college 
and the conference/diocese/presbytery or other structure to which a student is respon- 
sible. In the case of United Methodists, the program is a supplement to the candidacy 
program. This program is also a clearinghouse for student employment in various 
capacities in congregations or church agencies. Participation by United Methodist 
students is obligatory for receiving the ministerial grant. 

The following is the format for the program on a four-year basis: 

First Year: Exploration of personal motivations for professional ministry through a 
variety of personal interviews, group sessions and programs; building relationships with 
other participants; exploring meanings and forms of ministry through interviews, pro- 
grams, and field trips. 

Second Year: Personal growth experiences through two weekend personal growth 
seminars (one each semester) focused on self-development, assessment of style of work- 
ing with people and interpersonal relations, with continuing emphasis on the develop- 
ment of one's personal vision of ministry, and with optional personal growth experiences 
growing out of these seminars; experiences designed to expose students to working 
situations (church school classes, youth ministry programs, etc.); training in knowledge 
and skills for particular tasks, with options according to previous experiences and in- 
terests, in areas such as education, music, youth ministry, group dynamics, planning 
process, and other areas to be designated as the need arises. 

Third Year: Internships to be developed in consultation with the student in order 
to fit his or her interest. (Internships will carry academic credit in the Department of Religion 
and will include careful goal-setting, supervision, and reflection); consultations as prepara- 
tion for seminary choice and enrollment. 

Fourth Year: Further skill training; seminar based on personal growth, need assess- 
ment and goal setting. 

Special arrangements will be made for persons who transfer in after the first or sec- 
ond years of their college work and for persons with special circumstances. 

The coordinator for the Preparation For Ministry Program will be the chaplain to 
the college, assisted by the Department of Religion and two pre-seminary students. These 
persons will work with an advisory committee which will include the deans of students, 
the academic dean, the director of church relations, representatives of the supervising 
pastors of the two United Methodist conferences in Mississippi, representatives of 
denominations or faiths other than United Methodist, chairpersons of the Board of Or- 
dained Ministry, and other students who are interested in or planning for some form 
of professional Christian ministry. All incoming students who will receive the ministerial 
grant or who would like to explore Christian ministry as a personal vocation may secure 
a flyer and enroll in the program in the Department of Religion or the Office of the 
Chaplain. 

PRE-LAW 

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. 

37 



Different students may obtain the desired training in these three areas fronn different 
courses. Therefore, students should consult with their faculty or major advisers and with 
the pre-law adviser in designing a program of courses that will best fit particular needs, 
background, and interests. The student with a pre-law interest should consult the pre- 
law advisor, John Quincy 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. Introductory 
courses in sociology, psychology, and social work are essential. Other courses which 
are strongly recommended include Social Problems, Theories of Personality, and Social 
Psychology. Internships can provide valuable practical experience with community social 
welfare agencies. Students are urged to consult with their faculty advisers to plan a 
schedule.

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, sociology, composition, 
literature, and other subjects which ensure a liberal arts experience for pre-medical 
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 College 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 approved hospital. The student must 
complete the general requirements for the B.S. degree with a major in biology. 

Students enrolled in affiliated schools of medical technology may transfer back the 
final 26 hours of work. The courses required for registry are accepted as completing 
the requirements of 124 semester hours for graduation. The B.S. degree is awarded 
at the first commencement exercise following the completion of the medical technology 
training. 

Medical technology students are encouraged to secure the B.S. or B.A. degree 
before entering an approved school of medical technology.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS 

The Honors Program 

The Honors Program provides an opportunity for students of outstanding ability 
to pursue an advanced course of study which would ordinarily not be available. In the 
spring of their junior year and the fall of their senior year, honors students carry out 
a research project of their choice under the direction of a professor from their major 
department. The project culminates in an honors thesis, which is presented before a 
panel of faculty members. In the spring of the senior year, students participate in an 
interdisciplinary colloquium which intensively examines a topic of broad interest. Students 
successfully completing all phases of the Honors Program receive the designation "with 
honors" in their major subject at graduation. Students interested in participating in the 
Honors Program should consult with the director of the Honors Program in the fall of 
their junior year. 

The Oak Ridge Science Semester 

Under this program, sponsored jointly by the Southern College University Union 
and by the Department of Energy, a Millsaps student may spend the spring semester 
of the junior or senior year studying and doing research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, 
Oak Ridge, TN. A full semester's academic credit is normally earned. The student 
technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the purpose of scholarships and 
loans, which are not affected by participation in the program. 

The Washington Semester 

"The Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The American Univer- 
sity, Washington, D.C., Millsaps College, and other colleges and universities 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 govern- 
mental departments and other national and international 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 par- 
ticipating colleges will spend a semester at the School of Government and Public Ad- 
ministration of The American University in Washington. They earn 16 hours of credit 
toward graduation in their home colleges. Eight hours are earned in a Conference 
Seminar, in which high-ranking leaders of politics and government meet with students. 
Four hours are earned in a research course which entails the writing of a paper by utilizing 
the sources available only at the nation's capital. And four hours are earned in an In- 
ternship, in which the student is placed in a government or public interest organization 
office. In Washington the program is coordinated by faculty members of The American 
University. 

Millsaps has a guaranteed quota of two students for each spring semester, although 
students may petition for entry in the fall. Second semester sophomores, juniors, or seniors 
are eligible. 

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

The United Nations Semester 

A cooperative program with Drew University in Madison, NJ, enables Millsaps 
political science majors to spend a semester making a firsthand study of the work of 
the United Nations. Participants may earn 15 hours of credit toward graduation. Three 
hours of credit are earned in a Conference 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 diminished by participation in the program. 



42 



The London Semester 

Another cooperative program with Drew University gives upperclass political science 
nnajors 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 Universi- 
ty, and other outstanding schools. Students live in a residential hotel in the heart of Lon- 
don. 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 participation in the program. 

British Studies at Oxford 

Millsaps College in cooperation with seven other colleges in the Southern College 
and University Union sponsors a six-week intensive summer program at Oxford University 
in England. It enables students to study a particular period of British history in a thoroughly 
integrated way and in a milieu which affords an incomparable opportunity to benefit 
from the experience. Up to six hours of credit may be earned through this program. 
Limited financial aid is available. 

International Political Economy in London 

A six-week summer program based in London and focusing on challenges of the 
multinational economy was recently instituted under the auspices of the Southern Col- 
lege and University Union. It provides an opportunity to study in an integrated way the 
social, economic, and political facets of contemporary international problems while ob- 
serving firsthand the operations of a major financial center. Up to six hours of credit 
may be earned through this program. Limited financial aid is available. 

Other Study Abroad Programs 

Millsaps College maintains cooperative arrangements with the Junior Year Abroad 
program at the Institute for American Universities at Aix-en-Provence in France. Students 
with a special interest in classics should consider the Intercollegiate Center for Classical 
Studies in Rome and the College Year in Athens Program, both of which offer semester 
programs in the classical languages combined with archeological site and museum study 
during the regular academic year. The American Academy in Rome and the American 
School of Classical Studies in Athens offer summer programs in classical art and ar- 
cheology. Other study abroad programs are available in most countries of Western 
Europe as well as in Latin America. Students interested in receiving college credit for 
such study may receive information concerning these programs from the chairman of 
the appropriate department or from the dean of the college. 

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, per- 
forming 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. See Political 
Science 452. 

Public Administration Internship 

With the cooperation of city, state, and federal agencies, students who have had 
the introductory public administration course may be placed in middle management 
level positions. 

School of Management Intern Programs 

Students have the opportunity of obtaining specialized training and practical ex- 
perience 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 per- 
sonnel according to a predetermined agenda of activities. Evaluation of the student's 
participation and progress provides the basis for granting appropriate academic credit. 
See offerings 451-452 in the School of Management. 

43 



Small Business Institute 

Students apply theory to practice by consulting small business nnanagement in the 
area. The progrann is sponsored by the Snnall Business Administration (S.B.A.), an agency 
of the federal government. Students should register for Administration 490. 

Millsaps-Gulf Coast Research Laboratory Cooperative Program 

Students at Millsaps College, especially those in the natural sciences, are per- 
mitted to enroll for one or more of the following courses at the Gulf Coast Research 
Laboratory as a part of their regular program of studies. The laboratory is situated near 
Ocean Springs, 180 miles south of Jackson. Summer work at the laboratory provides 
firsthand knowledge of both marine and brackish water environments. 

For further information regarding these courses contact the G.C.R.L. coordinator 
on campus. 

ADULT DEGREE PROGRAM 

The Adult Degree Program was established in 1 982 to meet the needs of adults 
24 years of age and older who, because of work or family responsibilities, cannot at- 
tend college in the traditional way. Students admitted to the Adult Degree Program are 
candidates for the Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree. 

This program features individualized academic advising, a required introductory 
seminar for adults returning to college, evaluation of previous college work, credit for 
prior learning, and an opportunity for independent directed study. Students in the Adult 
Degree Program may elect to major in one of the traditional disciplines or they may 
choose to design an interdisciplinary major. 

In addition to its academic programs, Millsaps provides a variety of special ser- 
vices for adult students. These include child care, career planning and placement 
assistance, financial aid, information sessions, and a regular monthly newsletter. 

For further information about the Adult Degree Program, see the Guidelines and 
Procedures Handbook. 

THE GRADUATE PROGRAM 

Master of Business Administration 

The evening Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program has been estab- 
lished at Millsaps in response to requests from the business and non-profit communities 
in the Jackson area. Although designed primarily to meet the needs of part-time students, 
sufficient coursework is offered every semester to allow full-time graduate students some 
flexibility in planning a curriculum of study. A typical class includes men and women 
with a broad range of ages, and with backgrounds from engineering, the physical and 
social sciences, the arts and the humanities as well as from business. The following foun- 
dation courses may be taken at the undergraduate level; Accounting 281-282; Business 
Administration 220, 275, 321 , 333, 334, 362; Economics 201-202; and Computer 100.

of the curriculum 




GRADES, HONORS, CLASS STANDING 

The grade in any class is determined by the combined class standing and a written 
examination. The examination is approximately one-third of the grade for the semester. 
"A" represents superior work. 
"B" represents above the average achievement. 
"C" represents an average level of achievement. 
"D" represents a level of achievement in the regularly prescribed work of the class below 

the average in the same relationship as "B" is above the grade. 
"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 withdrawal 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. 
"CR" represents passing work in a non-graded course taken for hourly credit (not com- 
puted in G.P.A.). 
"NC" represents no credit in a non-graded course taken for hourly credit (not computed 

in G.P.A.). 

Quality Points 

The completion of any academic course with a D shall entitle a student to one quality 
point for each semester hour; a grade of C for the semester shall entitle a student to 
two quality points for each semester hour; a grade of B for the semester shall entitle 
a student to three quality points for each semester hour, and a grade of A shall entitle 
a student to four quality points for each semester hour. A quality point index is deter- 
mined 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 was made in 1968. 

Class Standing 

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 his/her status at the beginning of the 
fall semester. 

Student Status 

Degree-seeking students taking 12 or more academic hours will be classified as 
full-time students. Students taking fewer than 12 academic hours may not represent 
the college in extracurricular activities. 

Degree-seeking students taking fewer than 1 2 academic hours will be classified 
as part-time students. 

A special student is a mature person of ability and seriousness of purpose who 
enrolls for limited academic work and does not plan to seek a degree. The category 
of "special student" is not intended to include recent high school graduates. Special 
students observe the same regulations concerning attendance, examination and profi- 
ciency as regular students. 

Credit/No Credit Grade Option 

Some courses have been approved to be graded either by letter grade or by 
credit/no credit grading. The purpose of credit/no credit grading is to encourage students 
to take courses in areas they might not otherwise select. Credit/no credit grading re- 
quires full participation of the student in all class activities. Credit signifies work of pass- 
ing quality or above. It will not carry quality points nor be included in the G.P.A. Students 
are reminded that (except for certain internship programs) courses graded by the 
credit/no credit option do not count toward fulfilling the 120 (124 for the B. M. degree) 
letter-graded hours requirement and cannot be used to fulfill core requirements or n^ 
jor requirements. 

46 



When grade option is available, it will be incumbent upon the student to make the 
;hoice at the time of registration. Any change in grading option must be made within 
he drop-add period. (Exception: Theatre activity may be added later with appropriate 
ipproval.) 

Repeat Courses 

A student may enroll in a course at Millsaps which has previously been taken. The 
Highest grade earned in that course will be used in determining the cumulative quality 
Doint average. However, all grades reported for the course remain a part of the perma- 
nent record. This policy applies only to courses originally taken at Millsaps during or 
after spring semester 1973 and to courses originally taken at other institutions during 
3r after fall semester 1980. 

Graduation With Distinction 

A student whose quality point index is 3.2 for the entire course shall be graduated 
3um Laude; one whose quality point index is 3.6 and who has a rating of excellent 
Dn the comprehensive examination shall be graduated Magna Cum Laude; and one 
A/hose quality point index is 3.9 and who has a rating of excellent on the comprehen- 
sive examination shall be graduated Summa Cum Laude. 

To be eligible for graduation Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude or Summa Cum 
_aude, a student must have passed at least 60 academic semester hours in Millsaps 
College. Distinction or special distinction may be refused a student who, in the judg- 
Tient of the faculty, has forfeited the right. 

In determining eligibility for distinction or special distinction for students who have 
lot done all their college work at Millsaps, the quality points earned on the basis of grades 
Tiade at other institutions will be considered, but students will be considered eligible 
Dniy if they have the required index both on the work done at Millsaps and on college 
courses as a whole. 

Graduation With Honors 

A full-time student with junior standing who has an overall quality point index of 
3.0 may apply to the department chairman for permission to declare as a candidate 
or honors. Admission requires acceptance by the chairman and approval by the Honors 
Council. Entrance into the Honors Program becomes effective in the spring semester 
Df the junior year. 

Honors Program 

The Honors Program extends over three semesters. A student admitted to the pro- 
gram will in the second semester of the junior year enroll in a directed study entitled 
-Honors Research I. Work begun at that time will ordinarily be completed in the fall 
semester of the senior year when the student will be enrolled in Honors Research II. 
^ letter grade will be given for each of these courses. The two semesters of research 
are intended to culminate in an honors paper presented to the Honors Council and 
defended before an examining board. 

The last semester in the Honors Program consists of an Honors Colloquium designed 
;o bring together for intellectual exchange all students in the Honors Program. The aim 
Df the Honors Colloquium is the total involvement of good minds in the exchange of 
deas and values centering around selected themes and areas of investigation of mutual 
nterestto all disciplines. The Honors Colloquium is required of all students in the Honors 
Program.

No student may take more than 1 7 semester hours of academic work unless s(he) 
has a quality index of 2.5 on the last semester. No student may take more than 19 
semester hours unless (s)he has a quality point index of 3.00 on the last semester and 
obtains permission from the dean. No student may receive credit for more than 21 hours 
in a semester under any circumstances. In order to be classified as a full-time student,

ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS 

Sciiedule Clianges 

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

No student can be registered for courses in another college while being enrolled 
at Millsaps without the written permission of the dean of the college or the associate 
dean of the college. 

A student cannot change classes, drop classes or take up new classes except by 
the consent of the faculty adviser. 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 no later than one week after the reporting date for mid-semester grades 
are recorded as W.P. (withdrawn passing) or W.F. (withdrawn failing). Courses 
dropped after this time are recorded as F. If a student drops a course without securing 
the required approvals, (s)he receives an F. 

Witlidrawal 

A student desiring to withdraw within any term must obtain permission from the 
dean or associate dean of the college and file a withdrawal card. No refund will be con- 
sidered unless this written notice is procured and presented to the Business Office. 

Refunds will be made only as outlined under Financial Regulations. 

A student who withdraws with permission after the first two weeks of a semester 
is recorded as W.P. (withdrawn passing) or W.F. (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 (s)he should 
have come to college. 

The college reserves the right to cancel the registration of any student. 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. 

No student who withdraws is entitled to a grade report or to a transcript of credits 
until (s)he has settled accounts in the Business Office. 

Academic Suspension 

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 academic probation without suspension is two. 

48 



Students who are requested not to re-enter because of academic failure may peti- 
tion in writing for re-admission, 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. However, such a student may attend the summer session at Millsaps without 
a petition. 

Academic Probation 

Students who pass enough work to remain, but make in any semester a quality 
index of less than 1 .5 will be placed on probation. Restricted attendance privileges apply 
for all courses in which students are enrolled. 

Students may be removed from probation by making a 2.00 quality index during 
a regular semester or during a summer session at Millsaps College in which the student 
is enrolled for at least 1 2 academic hours credit. A student is asked not to re-enroll at 
Millsaps College if (s)he is on academic probation for two semesters. 

Unsatisfactory Academic Progress 

A part-time student who makes a quality index of less than 1 .5 in any semester 
will be notified that he or she is making unsatisfactory academic progress. To be removed 
from that classification the student must make a 2.0 quality index during a regular 
semester or summer session. 

Class Attendance 

Irregular attendance indicates that the student may be having difficulties adjusting 
to the course or to college. The primary responsibility for counseling students with respect 
to their absence rests with the faculty member; but, in the following circumstances, the 
faculty member is expected to report in writing the student's unsatisfactory attendance 
record to the Office of Records. 

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

2. For any student— 

a. When (s)he has been absent three successive class meetings for reasons un- 
known to the instructor. 

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

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

Individual faculty members decide the manner and extent to which absences alone 
will affect a student's grade. Each faculty member is expected to outline the policy in 
writing to each class at the beginning of the 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 excused 
absence does not excuse the student from being responsible for the course work. Ex- 
planation for a student's absence provided by a parent, medical doctor, or a member 
of the faculty or administration may be helpful to the faculty member, but such explana- 
tions are not in themselves excuses. This is particularly important in the case of absences 
involving missed examinations, late assignments, laboratory sessions and similar sched- 
uled commitments. Faculty members, however, may not excuse students from atten- 
dance on the two days preceding and the two days following vacation periods without 
the express permission of the dean. 

Each student is responsible for knowing general attendance policy of the college 
and the particular policies operative in each class. Further details relating to attendance 
are in the student handbook. 

Permission to make up an examination or alter the time for an examination may 
be granted only through the vice president and dean of the college. Any special ex- 
amination, if granted, must be held no later than the sixth week of the next regular 
semester. A $10 fee will be charged for such an examination, except at the discretion 
of the vice president and dean of the college in cases of serious illness at the time of 
the examination. This fee will become a part of the scholarship fund. 



49 



A student who has been excluded from a course by recommendation of the in- 
structor may, if (s)he wishes, petition the vice president and dean of the college within 
one weel( for the privilege of a reinstatement examination. This examination, to be 
prepared and administered by the instructor, shall cover the work of the course up to 
that date. A $10 fee will be paid to the Business Office for this privilege, with the fee 
going to the scholarship fund. Re-entry shall depend upon the examination results. If 
a student does not petition for re-entry, or if the re-entry is denied, the grade shall be 
recorded as F. 

Exemptions 

Students may elect to be exempt from final examinations in the semester in which 
they complete their comprehensive examinations, but only in those courses in which 
they have a C average or better. It shall be understood, however, that this exemption 
does not ensure 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 ex- 
empt 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. 

Seniors may be allowed one special examination in any subject taken and failed 
in the senior year. Permission for such examination must be secured from the dean 
or associate dean of the college. Students may request exemption from other re- 
quirements by petition to the dean of the college. 

Student Behavior 

Millsaps students are expected to act with honesty and integrity in personal, social 
and academic relationships, and with consideration and concern for the community, 
its members, and its property. 

The Board of Trustees and the administration affirm the right of the individual to 
the privacy of his or her room. The use of intoxicating beverages is not a part of, nor 
does it contribute to, the total educational emphasis of Millsaps College. The Board of 
Trustees does not approve the use of alcoholic beverages on the Millsaps Campus and 
does not permit the use of any alcoholic beverages in any public area on the campus. 
A student may consume alcoholic beverages only within the privacy of his or her room 
and only in accordance with the state law which prohibits the drinking of beer for those 
under 18 years of age and any other alcoholic beverage for those under 21 years of 
age. Regardless of age and state law requirements, no student is allowed to consume 
alcoholic beverages outside of the confines of a student's room. 

Fraternity and sorority facilities are subject to all applicable state laws and city or- 
dinances. Moreover, in the absence of an expressly granted exception, the display, 
serving, consumption, or any other use of alcoholic beverages is prohibited on the 
porches, yards, grounds and other external structures of any such facility. 

The Board of Trustees emphasizes that it does not approve of the use of alcoholic 
beverages on the Millsaps College premises. Consumption of alcoholic beverages in 
fraternity and sorority facilities or in a student's room must never result in irresponsible 
behavior or contribute to an environment not conducive to the realization of the primary 
goals and aims of Millsaps College. 

The use, possession or distribution of narcotics or dangerous drugs such as mari- 
juana and L.S.D., except as expressly allowed by law, is not permitted. Gambling is 
not permitted on campus. 

Disciplinary Regulations 

Students guilty of serious infractions of college regulations may be placed on social 
probation, disciplinary probation, suspension or expulsion at the discretion of the Judicial 
Council, the dean of student affairs or the president of the college dependent upon the 
original jurisdiction. Cases involving a recommendation of suspension or expulsion are 
automatically appealable to the president of the college. 

Social Probation 

Social probation is a warning to a student or to a campus organization regarding 

50 



acceptable standards of conduct. Its primary purpose is to provide a period of time 
for the student or campus organization to demonstrate responsible conduct by college 
standards. 

Disciplinary Probation 

Disciplinary probation is the most serious penalty, short of suspension and expul- 
sion, that can be incurred by a student. During a period of disciplinary probation any 
further infraction of college regulations will render the student liable to suspension. 

Disciplinary Suspension and Disciplinary Expulsion 

Suspension is a decision to temporarily separate a student from the college. 
Expulsion is a decision to permanently separate a student from the college. 

A more comprehensive statement of college policy regarding student behavior is 
contained in the student handbook. Specific regulations pertaining to residence halls 
and other facets of campus life are available through the Student Affairs Office.

CLASSICAL STUDIES 



The Alfred Porter Hamilton Chair of Classical Languages 

Associate Professor: RICHARD FREiS, Ph.D. 

Assistant Professor: CATHERINE RUGGIERO FREiS, Ph.D., Chairman 

Requirements for Major: A student may elect a major in classical studies with 
18-24 semester hours in one classical language, 6 semester hours in the other classical 
language, and 1 2 semester hours in classical civilization courses. The student must earn 
a grade of C or better in all courses counted toward the major. Either Greek or Latin 
may be chosen as the language of concentration. If Latin is the language of concentra- 
tion, Greek 1 01 -1 02 will suffice for the secondary language; but if Greek is the language 
of concentration, two Latin courses above the 101-102 level will be required. Any of 
the following courses may, with the approval of the chairman, substitute for one 3-hour 
course in classical civilization: Philosophy 301 , Art 201 , English 203, Political Science 301 . 

Students who choose Latin with the goal of teaching Latin in the secondary schools 
must take 18 hours above the 101-102 level for teacher certification. Students who in- 
tend to go to graduate school in classics should take additional language courses in 
both Greek and Latin. Prospective majors should also consider off-campus programs 
in classics. For further information see section Special Programs. 

Requirements for Minor: A student may elect a minor in classical studies with 
two courses in Greek or Latin above the 1 01 -1 02 level, two classical civilization courses, 
and one additional course in Greek, Latin, or classical civilization. 

CLASSICAL CIVILIZATION 

The following courses are conducted in English; they are open to all students for 
elective credit regardless of classification. Different courses in this sequence will be of- 
fered from year to year. 

301. Myth and Man (3). A study of the ancient myths of Greece and Rome and their 
influence on later literature with comparative material introduced from near Eastern, 
American Indian, and Norse mythology. 

302. Greek Tragedy (3). After a brief introductory study of Greek theatre production 
and the social-religious context of Greek tragedy, the class will read the main surviv- 
ing works of the three great tragedians, Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, and 
close with two critical works, Aristotle's Poetics and Aristophanes' comedy about 
tragedy. The Frogs. 

303. The Classical Epic (3). At the head of Western literature and thought stand the two 
Homeric poems, the Iliad and the Odyssey. The class will begin by studying the 
Homeric poems in themselves and as shaping factors in Western civilization. Then, 
after a brief study of the later Greek works, Hesiod's Works and Days and Descent 
of the Gods and Appollonius' Voyage of the Argo, it will turn to Vergil's Aeneid, in 
which the Homeric poems are transformed in the service of a quite different but no 
less important vision of man. 

304. Classical Art and Archaeology (3). This course will focus on the changing vi- 
sion of the world and human experience in ancient art and the forms and tech- 
niques which artists evolved to represent that vision. The class also will examine the 
techniques and the efforts of archaeologists to bring the lost works of ancient civilization 
to light. There will be field trips to the Museum of Classical Archaeology at the Univer- 
sity of Mississippi and to active archaeological sites in Mississippi.

305. The Classical Historians (3). A reading of major portions of the first great historians 
of the West, Herodotus, Thucydides, Polybius, and Tacitus; the class will focus 
especially on the conceptions of the world, man, and the proper aims and methods 
of history which underlie and shape each writer's works. 

306. Athens: The Life of a Greek City-State (3). This course will explore the pattern of 
life in the Greek city-state Athens in all its many dimensions, from the Age of the Tyrants 
through the Golden Age of Pericles and the political struggles and cultural flowering 
of the fourth century to its struggle against and absorption into the world-empire of 
Alexander the Great. The course will make substantial use of writings by Greek authors 
and some use of audio-visual illustrations so that as much as possible the Greek ex- 
perience will speak for itself.

Objective of the School of Management. The objective of the School of Manage- 
ment is to provide nnanagerial and professional leadership to the larger society by 
educating future leaders, in business and public administration and in the accounting 
profession by providing consulting and other services to the community, and ex- 
panding the body of knowledge in the field of management. With respect to the educa- 
tional mission, our goals are to develop a general management outlook toward organiza- 
tions and the changing environment they face; to foster the ability to organize informa- 
tion for analysis as the basis for making decisions; to instill standards of professional 
behavior which are consistent with the legitimate expectations of society; and to pro- 
vide technical expertise required for entry-level positions and leadership attributes 
necessary to attain positions in general management. 

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). Accounting and business ad- 
ministration majors must complete additional requirements for the Bachelor of Business 
Administration degree (B.B.A.). Economics majors must complete additional requirements 
for either a B.S. or B.A. degree. The requirements for a major in accounting or in business 
administration are in addition to courses which may be used to satisfy the minimum 
college requirements for all degrees and cannot be used to satisfy both areas. Majors 
must make a grade of C or better in all courses required by the School of Management. 

At least 54 hours must be earned in courses offered by the School of Management 
and at least 51 hours must be earned outside the School of Management. 

Coursework at the 300-level or above may be taken only by students who have 
completed at least 52 semester hours. 

Students pursuing the B.B.A. degree are encouraged to add depth in a non-business 
area that a minor can provide. Minors which would be of particular value to students 
in the School of Management are available in computer studies, modern languages, 
English, chemistry, political science, psychology, and biology. 

Transfer Credit: Transfer students should normally expect to satisfy the statistics 
requirement (Administration 275) at Millsaps. The typical first six hours of accounting 
principles will normally satisfy the department's 281-282 requirement. The typical six 
hours of sophomore economics will normally satisfy the Economics 201-202 require- 
ment. Transfer students will be required to satisfactorily complete at least 18 hours of 
courses offered by the School of Management to meet the requirement for the BBA 
degree and the major regardless of the specific requirements satisfied by transfer hours. 
In some instances this may mean repeating certain transferred, upper-division courses. 
Students should not expect to transfer credit in courses numbered at the 300-level or 
above from a community college to Millsaps.
