The Purpose of Millsaps College 

Millsaps College has as its primary aim the development of men and women for respon- 
sible 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 envi- 
ronment, 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 mod- 
ern worl(j. 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 ade- 
quately 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 tech- 
nicians 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 lan- 
guage, literature, philosophy, and science, the student at Millsaps can also obtain the neces- 
sary 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, dentis- 
try, engineering, law, and other fields. 

As an institution of higher learning, Millsaps College fosters an attitude of continuing in- 
tellectual 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, volun- 
tary dedication to moral principles and a growing social consciousness that will guide him 
into a rich, well-rounded Christian life, with ready acceptance of responsibility to neighbor, 
state, and church.

History of the College 



Millsaps College was founded in 1 890 by the Methodist Church as a "Christian college 
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 outskirts of Jackson, 
the state capital, a town of some 9,000 population. The beginnings were modest: two build- 
ings, 149 students (two-thirds of whom were enrolled in a preparatory school), five instruc- 
tors, 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 1 908, 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 (1 910-1 91 2), Dr. Alexander Farrar Watkins (1 91 2-1 923), Dr. 
David Martin Key (1923-1938), Dr. Marion Lofton Smith (1938-1952), Dr. Homer Ellis Fin- 
ger, 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 stu- 
dents for responsible citizenship and well-balanced lives, Millsaps offers professional and 
pre-professional training coupled with cultural and disciplinary studies. Students are se- 
lected on the basis of their ability to think, desire to learn, good moral character and intellec- 
tual maturity. The primary consideration for admission is the ability to do academic work 
satisfactory to the college and beneficial to the student. 

Millsaps' 1 ,400-member student body represents about 35 states and several foreign 
countries. Students come from 25 religious denominations. All are urged to take advantage 
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 advan- 
tages include: the Mississippi 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. The Else School of Management is accredited at both the un- 
dergraduate and graduate level by The American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Busi- 
ness. 

The Millsaps-Wilson Library 

The Millsaps-Wilson Library has more than 240,000 volumes and 900 periodical sub- 
scriptions. It provides 390 seats in individual study carrels, tables and rooms as well as 
browsing and lounge areas. There is a collection of audio-visual materials and listening facili- 
ties. Special collections are: the Lehman Engel Collection of books and recordings; the Mis- 
sissippi Methodist Archives; the Kellogg Collection of juvenile books and curriculum 
materials; the Paul Ramsey Collection in Applied Ethics; the Eudora Welty collection; U.S. 
Government Documents; the Millsaps Archives; and a rare book collection. Online com- 
puter searches and CD-ROM indexes are among the electronic services offered. The library 
is a member of the Central Mississippi Library Council and the Southeastern Library Net- 
work. 



The Computing Center 



In today's increasingly complex and information-driven society, students need to under- 
stand the role of computing. Millsaps fias developed outstanding computer resources to 
meet thiis need. From several terminal complexes on campus students have access to the 
Digital Equipment RSTS/E and VAX/VMS timesharing systems which are located in the 
Computing Center in the Academic Complex. Included is the new facility with color graphics 
terminals in the Olin Science Building. In addition, a word processing facility for student use 
is available. To meet the growing interest in use of personal computers, the College has es- 
tablished three personal computer laboratories: one in the Murrah Hall Annex, one in Murrah 
Hall, and one in Sullivan-Harrell Hall. 



Buildings and Grounds 



The 1 00-acre campus is valued at about $30 million. Chief administrative offices are in 
Whitworth Hall. Murrah Hall, built in 1914, was renovated in 1981 to house the Else School 
of Management. Sullivan-Harrell Hall, built in 1928 and renovated in 1990, houses the de- 
partments of Computer Studies, Geology, Mathematics, Physics, Education, Psychology 
and Sociology. The Olin Hall of Science, dedicated in 1 988, houses the departments of Biol- 
ogy and Chemistry. 

The Christian Center, completed in 1 950, was built with gifts from Mississippi Method- 
ists, 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 Academic Complex, completed in 1 971 , includes a recital hall in which is located a 
41 -rank Mohler organ. The complex houses Music, Art, Political Science, Computer Ser- 
vices, Business Office, Office of Records, Business Affairs and the Office of Adult Learning. 
It also contains sky-lit art studios, a student computer terminal room, a music laboratory and 
classrooms. 

The Physical Activities Center, dedicated in 1974, has courts for basketball, tennis, 
badminton, and volleyball. Weight-training and physical therapy rooms are also included 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 dining hall are lo- 
cated in the student center also. 

There are four residence halls for women and two for men. A new dormitory for junior 
and senior men and women opened in the fall of 1 985. All are centrally cooled and heated. 

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

Leaves of Absence and Readmission 

Students who leave the college for one semester or longer may apply for readmission by 
completing the appropriate application procedures and presenting transcripts for all aca- 
demic work attempted while away from the College. Students on approved leaves of ab- 
sence are not required to apply for readmission. They must apply to the Office of the Dean for

tional 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 col- 
lege 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 1 8 hours overall, with the exception 
of the Adult Degree Program where the limits are 1 2 and 30 hours respectively. 



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

Listed below are the Millsaps courses for which credit is given for Advanced Placement 
courses taken in high school and the score required in order to earn that credit, In some

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 the fall semester on December 1 , January

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 admission

Orientation and Advisement 

Many members of the college community are involved on an ongoing basis with orient- 
ing new students to college life and advising students to help them accomplish maximum 
success in their academic work. 

ORIENTATION: Freshmen and transfer students are expected to be on campus on dates 
specified in the college calendar. It is a cooperative effort involving students, faculty, and 
staff designed to prepare students for college life at Millsaps. 

FACULTY ADVISORS: New students are assigned to faculty members who serve as aca- 
demic advisors. When a student chooses the major field, a professor in that field becomes 
the advisor. The faculty advisors provide students with advice on courses to take to reach 
their degree objectives and on other academic concerns. 



Counseling Services 



Counseling services are available to all students in the Counseling & Career Planning 
and Placement Center. Students can receive counseling for a wide range of concerns. A 
counselor can assist in improving academic performance by helping a student develop 
study skills techniques such as time management, note-taking, problem-solving, and test- 
taking. Help IS also available to students wishing to engage in self-exploration and goal-set- 
ting, to discuss relationships or other personal concerns, to develop better coping skills, to 
obtain information on other community resources, and to discuss other problems or con- 
cerns. Referrals to professionals or treatment programs off campus will be made when it is 
believed to be appropriate. 

Career Planning and Placement 

Career planning begins in the freshman year with an emphasis on exploring both ca- 
reer fields and academic majors. Through interest testing, planning and consultation, stu- 
dents can explore academic disciplines relevant to their interests and over time, establish 
realistic career directions, develop career strategies and set goals. 

Frequent contact with the career counselor is encouraged to ensure continued develop- 
ment and movement toward a satisfying career choice. Students are invited to utilize re- 
sources in the career library, to participate in off-campus internships and to take advantage 
of opportunities for part-time and summer employment as bases of experience. These re- 
sources are available through the Counseling and Career Planning and Placement Center. 

Developing skills in resume writing, interviewing and job search strategies are empha- 
ses for junior and senior students. Workshops on these topics are presented on a regular 
schedule and students are urged to come in for private conferences. Current listings of em- 
ployment opportunities are available and on-campus interviews are scheduled with repre- 
sentatives from graduate and professional schools, businesses, industries and government 
agencies. 



Student Housing 



The dean and associate dean of student affairs coordinate housing in cooperation with 
residence 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 college resi- 
dence 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 should send 
the completed housing form and the college deposit as soon as possible. Assignments are 



11 



made in the order in winicli tlie deposit and a completed application are received. Students 
wishing to room together should make every effort to pay the college deposit at the same 
time and to specify their desire to room together. Room preferences are honored unless the 
rooms are already taken by students who are eligible for them. Single rooms are normally not 
available. Room rent cannot be refunded after the semester begins. 

Assignments are made in the order in which this fee is received by the Business Office 
according to the following priorities: 

1 . Current residents who are returning and have paid the room deposit by the estab- 
lished deadline announced each spring. 

2. Freshman students who have paid the room deposit. 

3. New transfer students who have paid the room deposit. 

4. Current students who wish to return to college housing and who paid the room de- 
posit on time. 

5. Current returning student residents who have not paid the room deposit on time. 

Current gtudents who have become academically ineligible and who have not been re- 
admitted on petition by June 1 will be refunded the room deposit. These students, if readmit- 
ted at a later date, will need to pay the room deposit and will be put on a waiting list for room 
assignments. 

A quiet wing option is offered for students who wish to live in an environment where 
more intensive study is possible twenty-four hours a day 

Residence halls open at 9 a.m. on the day preceding each term and close at 1 2 noon 
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 scheduled classes 
and reopen at 3 p.m. 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 during the regular academic year to its students 
who are suffering from minor illnesses. The services are limited to students living in Millsaps 
residence halls and fraternity houses. Medical services through the college physician are 
available through the nurse on duty (hours 9:00 a.m. to 1 :00 p.m. Monday through Friday 
while school is in session) 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. These ser- 
vices are not available beyond the closing hours of the Internal Medicine Group with which 
the College physician is associated. The college does not pay for visits to specialists. 



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 information 
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 catego- 
ries of information have been designated by Millsaps College as directory informa-

or other arrangements have been made with the Business Office. 

Any accounts due for any preceding semester must be paid before a student will be 
enrolled for the succeeding semester. The director of records is not permitted to transfer 
credits until all outstanding indebtedness is paid. No student will graduate unless all indebt- 
edness, including library fines and graduation fee, has been settled. 

The Millsaps Plan is available for parents who prefer a flexible no-cost system for paying 
educational expenses in regularly scheduled payments over a period of months, instead of 
one lump sum payment at the beginning of each semester. For more information, write to:

Scholarships and Financial Aid 

Millsaps College grants scholarships and financial aid to students on two bases: aca- 
demic excellence and financial need. Information may be obtained from the Dean of Stu- 
dent Aid Financial Planning. Financial aid is not available to international students.

mitted by the College Scholarship Service of the College Entrance Examination Board. The 
College Scholarship Service assists in determining the student's need for financial assis- 
tance. Students seeking assistance must submit a copy of the Financial Aid Form to the Col- 
lege Scholarship Service, designating Millsaps College as the recipient, by March 1 . The

Loan Funds 

Stafford Guaranteed Student Loan Program. Under this program the student will 
complete the Guaranteed Student Loan Application for the Agency for his or her home state 
and a Financial Aid Form. He/she sends the Financial Aid Form to the College Scholarship 
Service listing Millsaps as the recipient. The student should send the Guaranteed Student 
Loan Application to Millsaps so that the college can complete its portion of this form. Once 
the student and college officials have completed their portions, the student should then take 
the completed form to an approved lender (a Credit Union, Bank, Savings and Loan, and 
any other lending institution). If the student cannot find a lender, he/she should contact the 
financial aid office at Millsaps. The interest on these loans at this time is 8% until the begin- 
ning of the 5th year of repayment and then the interest becomes 1 0%. If a student qualifies, 
the federal government will pay the interest while the student is in school. Annual loan limits 
are $2,625.00 for undergraduate freshmen and sophomores, $4,000.00 for upper level un- 
dergraduates and $7,500.00 for graduate students. The cumulative limits are $1 7,250.00 
for an undergraduate and $54,750.00 for undergraduate and graduate work combined. 
(Repayment begins six months after graduation or withdrawal from school.) 

Plus/SLS. Under this program parents of students enrolled or accepted for enrollment 
as at least half-time students are eligible to borrow for the student's educational expenses. 
Independent undergraduate students or graduate/professional students who are enrolled or 
admitted for enrollment as at least half-time students are eligible to borrow for their educa- 
tional expenses under this program. Applications for this program may be obtained from the 
Student Aid Financial Planning Office. A variable interest rate has been established for both 
of these programs. Interest will be the one-year Treasury Bill rate, plus 3.75%, with a maxi- 
mum of 1 2%. For a parent borrower $4,000.00 is the maximum per academic year for each 
dependent undergraduate student not to exceed a total of $20,000.00. The repayment per- 
iod on the loan begins the day the loan is disbursed and interest begins to accrue that day. 
The first payment is due within 60 days of the date of loan disbursement. 

Perkins Loans (NDSL). A student may borrow in the first two academic years a total 
sum not to exceed $4,500 and during the undergraduate course of study a sum not exceed- 
ing $9,000. Payment of the loan begins nine months after the borrower has completed or 
withdrawn from higher education work and will be completed within 10 years and nine 
months. The interest rate is 5 percent during repayment. Detailed information concerning 
this loan and application forms can be secured from the Dean of Student Aid Financial Plan- 
ning at Millsaps.

The College Work-Study Program has been established from funds contributed by 
the federal government and the college to provide financial assistance through employment. 

State Student Incentive Grants are provided by Millsaps, the state of Mississippi and 
the federal government. These funds are to help qualified students with substantial financial 
need. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are provided by the federal govern 
ment 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, the maximum award is 
$2,300.

Student Life 




tT-^.:^. 



^^f] H 





1991-92 



Campus Ministry 



Religious life at Millsaps centers around the churches, synagogue and other faith com- 
munities of the city of Jackson and the religious life program coordinated through the Cam- 
pus Ministry Team. Churches provide communities of faith for students, faculty and staff. The 
campus religious life program attempts to provide experiences which explore the meaning 
of a life of faith for a college community. 

To accomplish this, a varied program is offered: sponsorship of special programs on the 
Friday Forum Series on such issues as the occult, the family, and the Skinhead phenome- 
non; a series that addresses from an intentionally Christian perspective such issues as abor- 
tion, censorship and pornography, homosexuality and war; fellowship experiences; Bible 
studies; projects in the community working with disadvantaged populations; chapel and 
special services such as the Advent and Maundy Thursday Services; emphases on such 
issues as AIDS and Adult Children of Alcoholics; and many others. In addition, the campus 
chapter of Habitat for Humanity is very active and the Centennial Voluntary Service Project 
has as its goal 1 00,000 hours of service to the community by students, faculty, staff, alumni, 
parents and*members of the Board of Trustees. All of these experiences are meant to com- 
municate an active understanding of the life of faith as it addresses crucial social needs. 

In addition to the Campus Ministry Team, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes sponsors 
a group on campus. All campus ministry is strongly ecumenical. Furthermore, in addition to 
the College Chaplain, the college has been fortunate to have additional parttime and fulltime 
persons at various times working on campus through the United Methodist Mission Intern 
Program and the Catholic VOICE program. 

The Office of the Chaplain serves as a liaison with churches and with The Mississippi 
Conference of the United Methodist Church. Furthermore, a working relationship has been 
established with many community projects and agencies as vehicles for student involve- 
ment. 

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 Friday 
Forum Series — a continuing slate of speakers presented each Friday during the academic 
year. The objective of the series is to provide information and stiumlate interest in current is- 
sues, to explore historical events, and to present differing perspectives on controversial sub- 
jects. 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 de- 
partments interested in organizing programs open to the entire campus. These include 
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. 

Competitive sports conducted in an atmosphere of good sportsmanship and fair play 
can make a significant contribution to the complete physical, 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. 



26 



Intercollegiate 

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

The programs are conducted on guidelines established by the National Collegiate Ath- 
letic Association for Division ill institutions and the College Athletic Conference. 

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

Intramural 

The program for men provides competition among campus organizations in basketball, 
volleyball, softball, team handball, flag football, indoor soccer, and outdoor soccer. The pro- 
gram for women includes volleyball, basketball, softball, and flag football. 



Publications 



The Purple and White is the official student newspaper of the college, and its staff is 
composed of individuals interested in 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. 

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 performances, 
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 Mem- 
phis Symphony Orchestra three times, the Jackson Symphony many times, the Chicago 
Chamber Orchestra and the New Orleans Philharmonic. 

The Troubadours 

Auditions are held each fall for membership in the Troubadours, a chamber choir of 1 6 
students selected from the Singers who specialize in madrigals and vocal jazz. The Trouba- 
dours represent the college at numerous campus, high school, and cultural functions 
throughout the region. 

The Wind Ensemble 

The Wind Ensemble is an important performing group within the Music Department. 
Made up of brass, woodwinds, and percussion, this ensemble is open to all students with 
instrumental and musical experience. They enjoy giving performances alone or in concert 
with the Millsaps Singers. 

The Millsaps Players 

The Millsaps Players, now in their seventh decade, produce four full-length plays each 
year. In addition, they present several one-act plays directed by senior theatre majors. Cast- 
ing for all plays is done by audition, open to all students. Participation in Players productions, 
either onstage or backstage, earns credit toward membership in Alpha Psi Omega, national 
honorary dramatics fraternity. Among the major productions staged in recent years are The 
Tempest, Ring Round the Moon, Biloxi Blues, Ghosts, Equus, A Midsummer Night's Dream, 
Camino Real, West Side Story, Sweet Bird of Youth, Hedda Gabler, She Stoops to Conquer, 
Summer and Smoke, Dark of the Moon, All My Sons, Much Ado About Nothing, Shenan- 
doah, and Tea and Sympathy

Student Organizations 



Student Body Association 

All regularly enrolled students of Millsaps are members of the Student Body Associa-

38 



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 par- 
ticular minor can be found under the appropriate department of instruction. 

11. Comprehensive Examinations: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satisfactory compre- 
hensive 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 knowl- 
edge 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 mem- 
bers of the department concerned. The oral examination will be conducted by a com- 
mittee 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 re- 
quirements in their major department. They may take the examination in the spring se- 
mester if they are within 1 8 hours of graduation by the end of that semester. The 
examination will be given in December or January for students who meet the other re- 
quirements and who will not be in residence at Millsaps during the spring semester. 

The time of the comprehensive examination is given in the College calendar. Com- 
prehensive examinations will not be given at any other time except by permission of the 
dean. Those who fail a comprehensive examination may have an opportunity to take 
another examination after the lapse of two months. Additional examinations may be 
taken at the discretion of the chairman of the student's major department with the con- 
sent of the dean of the college. 

12. Quality Index Required: 

A minimum of 240 quality points is required for the B.A., B.S., B.B.A., and B.L.S. 
degrees; 248 for the B.M. degree. An overall quality point index of 2.00 is required 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 Stand- 
ing.) 

13. Application for a Degree: 

Each student who is a candidate for a degree is required to submit a written appli- 
cation 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. 

14. 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 de- 
gree, and these additional hours must include all of the requirements for both the sec- 
ond degree and the second major. 

15. 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. 



39 



Enrollment in the required language courses will begin not later than the first se- 
mester 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 begin such courses in the freshman year while their experience in the language 
chosen is recent. 

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 131-133 8 hours 

Chemistry 121-122, 123-124 8 hours 

Chemistry 231 -232, 233-234 10 hours 

Mathematics 140-145 6 hours 

Physics 11 1-1 12 or 131-1 32 in addition to 151-1 52 8-10 hours 

The student is urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory Committee 
(Sarah Armstrong, Al Berry, Robert Kahn, Robert Nevins, and Edmond Venator) in design- 
ing a program that will fit particular needs, background and interest. 

Millsaps College and the majority of 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 medi- 
cal and dental schools also strongly recommend that the student develop a sound back- 
ground in the humanities and social sciences. 

Some medical and dental schools will not accept credit in laboratory science courses 
obtained by C.L.E.R or advanced placement tests. Students planning to obtain such credit 
should first consult the medical or dental schools in which they have an interest to be certain 
that the school will accept such credit. 

Students should remember that the requirements listed in a medical or dental school 
catalog are minimal but that they should obtain maximum preparation. In general, the stu- 
dent 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 take courses that will not be available during professional training. The following 
courses are recommended as electives by many medical and dental schools. 

Biology 251 , 21 5, 301 , 320, 381 , 383, 391 

Chemistry 251-253, 264-266, 363-365, 364-366, 391-393 

English 

Economics and Business Administration 

Foreign Language (reading knowledge) 

History 

Mathematics 262, 263 

Philosophy 

Physics 231-232, 311-312,315,316 

Psychology 203, 307 

Sociology 

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



Pre-Ministerial 



There is no required program of studies for persons planning to enter one of the minis- 
tries of the Church. Undergraduate pre-seminary work at Millsaps should include significant 
work in the study of religion and philosophy and in the behavioral sciences. A major may be 
chosen from several fields, including literature, philosophy, psychology, religion, and sociol- 



40 



ogy. Pre-ministerial students are urged to consult with the pre-nninisterial adviser, the chair- 
man of the Department of Religion, early in their freshman year. 

Given the special challenges of the practice of ministry, students should plan to under- 
take professional education in a theological seminary. The best basis for such professional 
education is an undergraduate education with breadth in liberal arts studies. 



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. 

Different students may obtain the desired training in these three areas from 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, back- 
ground, and interests. The student with a pre-law interest should consult the pre-law adviser, 
John Quincy Adams, or other members of the Pre-Law Advisory Committee (Peter Ward, 
Del Gann and Marlys Vaughn). 

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, preferably sociology. 
Introductory courses in sociology, psychology, and social work are essential. Other courses 
which are strongly recommended include Social Problems, Theories of Personality, and So- 
cial Psychology. Internships can provide valuable practical experience with community so- 
cial welfare agencies. Students are urged to consult with their faculty advisers to plan a 
schedule. 

Programs for Teacher Certification 

A student may prepare for teacher certification at Millsaps College in a variety of ways. 
Millsaps offers Teacher Education Programs which lead to certification at the elementary 
school level (K-8). the secondary school level (7-1 2), and in special areas (K-1 2). A student 
may pursue any degree offered by the College and qualify for teacher certification provided 
all College major requirements are met and all teacher certification requirements are met. 
The Teacher Education Programs offer certification in Elementary Education (K-8), Second- 
ary Education (7-12) in Bible, English, Foreign Language, Mathematics, Science, and Social 
Studies, and in the special areas (K-1 2) Art, and Music Education. A student may also qual- 
ify for endorsements in Computer Education, Gifted Education, Health and Physical Educa- 
tion, or Remedial Reading. The Teacher Education Programs qualify the student for 
provisional teacher certification as required by the Office of Teacher Certification and the 
Mississippi State Board of Education. After completing a certification program at Millsaps, 
the student will be prepared to pass the provisional year evaluation and receive the standard 
Class A certificate. 

Prior to being admitted to any Teacher Education Program at Millsaps College, a 
student shall have completed the core curriculum, achieved a minimum grade point average 
of 2.50, passed the Communication Skills and General Knowledge tests of the National 
Teacher Examination, received the written recommendation of two faculty members outside 
the Department of Education, and completed all application procedures with the Chair of 
the Department of Education. Teacher Education comprehensive examination requirements 
include all four components of the National Teacher Examination. (Students are requested to 



41 



have copies of their NTE scores sent directly to the Mississippi State Department of Educa- 
tion.) To receive the College's reconnmendation for teacher certification, the student must 
maintain the 2.5 G.P.A., pass the Professional Knowledge and Specialty Area tests of the 
National Teacher Examination no later than the fall semester of the senior year, and complete 
the Portfolio for Comprehensive Examination with the Department of Education as appropri- 
ate. 



Cooperative Programs 



BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 

3-2 Master's Program in Business Administration: The Else School of Management 
at Millsaps College offers a program permitting an undergraduate at Millsaps to pursue any 
non-B.B.A. degree concurrent with the M.B.A. degree. The student would complete sub- 
stantially all Millsaps core and major requirements in three years and apply to the M.B.A. 
program in tHe junior year. An acceptable score on the Graduate Management Admission 
Test is required for admission. The baccalaureate degree would be awarded after the degree 
requirements are satisfied at that level, normally after the fourth year, and the masters degree 
after the fifth year. Twenty-six hours of graduate work may be applied toward the undergrad- 
uate degree in this program. Details of the program may be obtained from the Assistant 
Dean of the Else School of Management. 

ENGINEERING AND APPLIED SCIENCE 

This program at Millsaps offers many opportunities for the student interested in engi- 
neering, applied science, management and business administration. With this cooperative 
program the student can combine the advantages of a liberal education at Millsaps with the 
specialized programs of a major university. The Arthur C. Miller Pre-engineering Scholarship 
Fund provides a scholarship based on financial need and academic progress for a student 
expressing an interest in engineering. 

3-2 B.S. Programs: At present we have arrangements with five universities — Auburn, 
Columbia, Georgia Tech, Vanderbiltand Washington Universities-by which a student may 
attend Millsaps for three years accumulating a minimum of 93 hours and then continue work 
at any of the schools listed above. The student then transfers a maximum of 31 hours back 
for a bachelor's degree from Millsaps and at the end of the fifth year receives another bache- 
lor's degree from the university. 

4-2 B.S. and IVI.S. Programs: The Columbia University Combined Plan also has 4-2 
programs in which a student attends Millsaps for four years completing degree requirements 
and then spends two more years at Columbia to obtain a B.S. or M.S. degree from the Co- 
lumbia School of Engineering and Applied Science. 

3-3 B.S. -IVI.S. and B.S. -M.B.A. Programs: Washington University also has a Com- 
bined Degree Program wherein the student spends three years at Millsaps as in the 3-2 pro- 
gram, but then spends three years at Washington University earning both the B.S. and M.S. 
from the School of Engineering and Applied Science or both the B.S. from the School of En- 
gineering and Applied Science and the M.B.A. from the Graduate School of Business Ad- 
ministration. 

A wide variety of programs are offered by the five participating universities, including 
financial aid for qualified students. For detailed descriptions of programs and financial aid 
the interested student is urged to consult with the Pre-engineering Advisor, Asif Khandker. To 
be admitted to the programs listed below the student must fulfill certain minimum course re- 
quirements at Millsaps. For many programs, particularly those in engineering and applied 
science, the mathematics requirements are strict. To keep the 3-2 or 4-2 option viable, a stu- 
dent should plan to take calculus at the earliest possible time at Millsaps. 

For students interested in engineering, the general expectation of the cooperating engi- 
neering schools is that most, if not all, of the science, mathematics and humanities require- 
ments for the engineering degree be taken at Millsaps. Students interested in a particular 
program, however, should consult the catalog of the appropriate university and the Millsaps 
pre-engineering advisor. Some programs have particular requirements, such as the Auburn 



42 



University electrical engineering requirement of an ethics course, which students might wish 
to fulfill at Millsaps. 

The Dual Degree Program at Auburn University includes bachelor of engineering de- 
grees in aerospace, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, materials and mechanical engi- 
neering. It is also possible to obtain a B.S. in agricultural engineering. 

The Combined Plan Program at Columbia University offers B.S. and M.S. degrees in 
civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical, mining, nuclear, biological, chemical, metallurgical 
and mineral engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineering mechan- 
ics, applied mathematics (B.S. only), applied physics, materials science, operations re- 
search, solid state science (M.S. only), chemical metallurgy, applied chemistry and 
materials science. 

The Dual Degree Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology offers degrees in aero- 
space, ceramic, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical, nuclear, and textile engi- 
neering. Other programs include engineering science and mechanics, textile chemistry 
textiles, health physics, economics, management, management science, applied biology 
applied mathematics, applied physics, applied psychology, chemistry information and 
computer science, and physics. 

Vanderbilt University offers bachelor of engineering degrees in chemical, civil, electri- 
cal and mechanical engineering. 

Washington University offers B.S. and M.S. programs in chemical, civil, electrical and 
mechanical engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineering and pub- 
lic policy, systems science and engineering, and business administration (M.B.A.) 

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 mathe- 
matics 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 technol- 
ogy which are approved by the Council on Medical Education and Hospitals of the Ameri- 
can 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 require- 
ments of 124 semester hours for graduation. The B.S. degree is awarded at the first com- 
mencement 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 

MILITARY SCIENCE 

A Military Science program is offered on the campus of Jackson State University under 
a cross-enrollment agreement between Millsaps College, Jackson State University, and the 
U.S. Army Students enrolled at Millsaps are eligible to enroll and attend Reserve Officer 
Training Corps (ROTO) classes on the campus of Jackson State University Credits earned 
in ROTC will be entered onto the student's transcript but will not be counted towards 
Millsaps graduation requirements. 

ROTC provides male and female students an opportunity to earn a commission as a 
Second Lieutenant (2LT) in the U.S. Army, the U.S. Army Reserves, or the Army National 
Guard, concurrent with the pursuit of an academic degree. The objectives of the program 
are: 

(1) To provide an understandingof how the U.S. Army U.S. Army Reserves, and Army Na- 
tional Guard fit into our national defense structure. 



43 



(2) To develop the leadership and managerial potential of students needed to facilitate their 
future performance as officers. 

(3) To develop student abilities to think creatively and to speak and to v\/rite effectively. 

(4) To encourage the development of mental and moral standards that are essential to mili- 
tary service. 

The program of instruction includes developing self-discipline, physical stamina and 
other qualities necessary for leadership. 

The ROTC Program is divided into a basic course of instruction (freshman and sopho- 
more classes) and an advanced course of instruction (junior and senior classes). In addition 
to the course of instruction, students are required to attend a leadership laboratory in con- 
junction with all ROTC courses. 

There is no charge for enrolling in the ROTC program; however, cadets must be full- 
time undergraduate students (1 2 semester hours or more) or full-time graduate students (9 
semester hours or more) before enrollment in ROTC. Books, equipment, and uniforms are 
free of charge to the students. Three- and two-year ROTC scholarships are also awarded on 
a competitive basis.

Special Programs 



Ford Fellows Program 

The Ford Fellows Program provides an opportunity for upperclass students with an in- 
terest in college teaching to work closely witfi a faculty member in their area of academic 
interest. The program provides opportunities for research and scholarship as well as primary 
teaching experience under faculty supervision. Students must submit an application jointly 
with the faculty member with whom they will be working to the program director early in the 
spring semester. Approximately twelve students are selected each year for participation in 
this program. 

The Honors Program 

The Honors Program provides an opportunity for students of outstanding ability to pur- 
sue 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 a professor's direction. The project's final product, consisting wholly or 
partially of a written thesis, is presented before a panel of faculty members. In the spring of 
the senior year, students participate in an interdisciplinary colloquium which intensively ex- 
amines a topic of broad interest. Students successfully completing all phases of the Honors 
Program receive the designation "with honors" in their field of honors work at graduation. Stu- 



44 



dents interested in participating in the Honors Program should consult with the director of 
the Honors Program in the fall of their junior year. 

The Washington Semester 

"The Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The American University, 
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 governmental depart- 
ments and other national and international agencies that are located in Washington, thus ac- 
quainting 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 partici- 
pating colleges will spend a semester at the School of Government and Public Administra- 
tion 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 Internship, 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 remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the purpose of scholarships and 
loans, which are thus not diminished by participation in the program. 

School of Management Intern Programs 

Students have the opportunity of obtaining specialized training and practical experi- 
ence through an established Internship Program. The program involves prominent regional 
and national business organizations and agencies of the state 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. See offerings 451-452 in the 
Else School of Management. 

Summer Program in London 

The Else School of Management offers a six-weeks summer program in London which 
studies the global dimension of the business world. The program has focused its study on 
the new Europe in recent years and a variety of field trips and guest speakers are integrated 
into the courses. Either three or six hours can be earned in this program. 

British Studies at Oxford 

Millsaps College, through membership in the Associated Colleges of the South, spon- 
sors a six-week intensive summer program at Oxford University in England. It enables stu- 
dents 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. 

Study Abroad Programs 

Millsaps College maintains cooperative arrangements with the Institute of European 
Studies and the Institute of East Asian Studies, which maintain programs in seven different 
countries. 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 
archeology. 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 



45 



may receive information concerning these programs from the chairman of the appropriate 
department or from Dr. Patrick Delana, Coordinator for Study Abroad. 

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 vari- 
ety of tasks such as research, writing, and marking up bills. Students also take part in a sem- 
inar 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 posi- 
tions. 

The Office of Adult Learning 

The Office of Adult Learning coordinates and administers services to adult learners. 
Among these are the Adult Degree Program, the Community Enrichment Series, Leader- 
ship Seminars in the Humanities, Advanced Placement Institutes, the admission of special 
students and admission to the Summer Session. 

The Adult Degree Program 

The Adult Degree Program was established in 1982 to meet the needs of adults 24 
years of age and older who, because of work or family responsibilities, cannot attend 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 semi- 
nar for adults returning to college, evaluation of previous college work, credit for prior learn- 
ing, and the 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 services for 
adult students. These include career planning and placement assistance, financial aid, infor- 
mation sessions, and newsletters. 

For further information about the Adult Degree Program, see the Guidelines and Proce- 
dures Handbook. 

Community Enrichment Series 

Since 1 972, Millsaps College has offered to the Greater Jackson community a variety 
of opportunities through the Community Enrichment Series. These are non-credit courses 
which require no prerequisites and no examinations. They cover a variety of special interest 
areas such as, "Writing for Magazines," "Understanding the Stock Market," "Computer Ba- 
sics," "Assertiveness Training," "Landscape Gardening," and "Pottery" Enrichment courses 
are available in the fall, winter and spring each year. 

Leadership Seminars in the Humanities 

Established in 1987 and made possible in part by a grant from the National Endow- 
ment for the Humanities, Leadership Seminars in the Humanities bring together Millsaps 
professors in the Humanities with corporate and professional leaders in the community. 
These seminars offer an opportunity for serious engagement with intellectual issues affect- 
ing society and the individual. Fifteen participants may be selected for each seminar. 

Advanced Placement Institutes 

Advanced Placement Institutes are offered each summer. Designed for teachers who 
teach Advanced Placement courses to selected high school students, these Institutes are 
taught by instructors recommended by The College Board. Participants work with these 
master teachers to plan and prepare courses that will help students to become well pre- 



46 



pared for college courses and to perform creditably on the Advanced Placement Examina- 
tions. 



The Graduate Program 



Master of Business Administration

Administration 
of the Curriculum 




1991-92 



Grades, Honors, Class Standing 

The grade in any class is determined by the combined class standing and a written ex- 
amination. The examination is approximately one-third ot 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 computed 

inG.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 qual- 
ity 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 determined by dividing the total num- 
ber 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 1 968. 

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 1 2 academic hours may not represent the college 
in extracurricular activities. 

Degree-seeking students taking fewer than 12 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 stu- 
dent" is not intended to include recent high school graduates. Special students observe the 
same regulations concerning attendance, examination and proficiency 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 requires full partic- 
ipation of the student in all class activities. Credit signifies work of passing quality or above. It 
will notcarry quality points nor be included in the G. PA. Students are reminded that (except 
for certain internship programs) courses graded by the credit/no credit option do not count 



50 



toward fulfilling the 1 20 (1 24 for the B. M. degree) letter-graded hours requirement and can- 
not be used to fulfill core requirements or major requirements. 

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

Repeat Courses 

A student may enroll in a course at Millsaps which has previously been taken. In such a 
case the highest grade earned in that course will be used in determining the cumulative 
quality point average. A course may only be repeated for a higher grade at Millsaps. If a 
course previously taken at Millsaps is repeated at another school, the Millsaps grade, 
whether higher or lower will be used in determining the cumulative quality point average. All 
grades reported for the course remain a part of the permanent record. 

Graduation With Distinction 

A student whose quality point index is 3.2 for the entire course shall be graduated Cum 
Laude; one whose quality point index is 3.6 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 60 academic semester hours in Millsaps College. Distinc- 
tion or special distinction may be refused a student who, in the judgment of the faculty, has 
forfeited the right. 

In determining eligibility for distinction or special distinction for 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 students will be considered eligible only 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 for honors. Ad- 
mission requires acceptance by the chairman and approval by the Honors Council. Entrance 
into the Honors Program becomes effective in the spring semester of the junior year. 

Election to Phi Beta Kappa 

The Phi Beta Kappa chapter at Millsaps elects members from the graduating class each 
spring. To be considered for election to membership in Phi Beta Kappa, a student must meet 
the following criteria: 

1 . Completion of requirements for a BA, BS or BLS degree with a liberal arts or sci- 
ences major. 

2. A minimum of six semesters at Millsaps. 

3. A year of college level mathematics and two years of a foreign language (or the 
equivalent as demonstrated by proficiency at the intermediate level). 

4. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.6 based on seven or more semes- 
ters. (Grades earned in applied or professional work are not counted in computing 
GPA for the purpose of election to Phi Beta Kappa.) 

No more than 1 percent of the liberal arts and sciences graduates may be elected to 
membership from a graduating class. 

Honors Program 

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



51 



The last semester in the Honors Program consists of an Honors Colloquium designed to 
bring together for intellectual exchange all students in the Honors Program. The aim of the 
Honors Colloquium is the total involvement of good minds in the exchange of ideas and val- 
ues centering around selected themes and areas of investigation of mutual interest to all dis- 
ciplines. The Honors Colloquium is required of all students in the Honors Program. 

A candidate who completes the colloquium satisfactorily, who presents and defends 
the honors project 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 student may voluntarily withdraw 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 upon the recom- 
mendation of the honors advisor and with the approval of the Honors Council. 

Dean's List 

Those meeting these requirements are on the Dean's List: 

1. Scholarship: 

(a) The student must carry not less than 1 2 academic hours during the semester on 
which the scholastic average is based. 

(b) The student must have a quality point average of 3.2 for that semester. 

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

2. Conduct: 

The student must be, in the judgment of the dean, a good citizen of the college com- 
munity. 

Hours Permitted 

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

Students may not take more than 1 7 semester hours of academic work unless they have 
a quality index of 2.5 on the last semester. No student may take more than 19 semester 
hours without a quality point index of 3.00 on the last semester and permission from the 
dean. No student may receive credit for more than 21 hours in a semester under any circum- 
stances. In order to be classified as a full-time student, one must take no fewer than 1 2 se- 
mester hours, unless a graduating senior. 

Administrative Regulations 

Schedule Changes 

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 (with- 
drawn passing) or W.F. (withdrawn failing). Courses dropped after this time are recorded as 
F. Students who drop a course without securing the required approvals will receive an F 

Withdrawal 

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 considered un- 
less this written notice is procured and presented to the Business Office. 

Refunds will be made only as outlined under Financial Regulations. 



52 



A student who withdraws with permission after the first two weeks of a semester is re- 
corded 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 circum- 
stance which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose of 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 disci- 
pline forfeit the right to a refund. 

No student who withdraws is entitled to a grade report or to a transcript of credits until all 
accounts are settled in the Business Office. 

Academic Suspension 

For full-time students entering the college as freshmen , it is necessary to pass in the first 
semester six hours of academic work in order to remain in college. Thereafter a full-time stu- 
dent must pass nine hours of academic work to be eligible to continue in college. Further- 
more, the maximum number of semesters a student may be on academic probation without 
suspension is two. 

Students who are requested not to re-enter because of academic failure may petition 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 reg- 
ular semester or during a summer session at Millsaps College in which the student is en- 
rolled for at least 12 academic hours credit. A student on academic probation for two 
semesters is asked not to re-enroll at Millsaps College. 

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 sum- 
mer 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 — after three successive absences for reasons unknown to the in- 
structor, or when in danger of failing the course. 

This reporting of absences is for counseling purposes only, and has no effect on the stu- 
dent'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 ab- 
sence does not excuse the student from being responsible for the course work. Explanation 
for a student's absence provided by a parent, medical doctor, or a member of the faculty or 



53 



administration may be lielpful to tlie faculty member, but sucli explanations are not in them- 
selves excuses. This is particularly important in the case of absences involving missed ex- 
aminations, late assignments, laboratory sessions and similar scheduled commitments. 
Faculty members, however, may not excuse students from attendance on the two days pre- 
ceding 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 examination, if 
granted, must be held no later than the sixth week of the next regular semester. 

A student who has been excluded from a course by recommendation of the instructor 
may petition the vice president and dean of the college within one week for the privilege of a 
reinstatement examination. This examination, to be prepared and administered by the in- 
structor, shall cover the work of the course up to that date. 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 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. 

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 requirements by petition to 
the dean of the college. 

Honor in an Academic Community 

Millsaps College is an academic community where men and women pursue a life of 
scholarly inquiry and intellectual growth. The foundation of this community is a spirit of per- 
sonal honesty and mutual trust. In order to maintain trust between members of the College, 
faculty and students must adhere to these basic ethical principles. Honor within an aca- 
demic community is not simply a matter of rules and procedures; it is an opportunity to put 
personal responsibility and integrity into action. When students accept the implicit bond of 
honor of an academic community, they liberate themselves to pursue their academic goals 
in an atmosphere of mutual confidence and respect. 

Student Behavior 

The College has the responsibility and authority to establish standards for scholarship, 
student conduct and campus life. Therefore, it cannot condone violations of local, state or 
federal laws or conduct detrimental to students or to the College. Students, as adults, are 
presumed to know the law as to illegal conduct prohibited by municipal, state or federal law 
and are governed thereby 

r\/iillsaps 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 

Millsaps requires from every student sober, decorus and upright conduct as long as he/ 
she remains a member of the college community, whether he or she be within its precincts or 
not. No individual or group should cause serious discomfort or injury to others or to the com- 
munity This will include such acts as obstruction or disruption of teaching, research, admin- 
istration or other collegiate activities and unauthorized entry to or use of college facilities. 



54 



The College expects students to be concerned with the physical and psychological 
well-being of others and cannot condone behavior which exploits another individual. Stu- 
dents and organizations are expected to comply with rules governing the academic, social, 
and residential life of the College. They are expected to comply with directions of college 
officials. Students are also responsible for the behavior of their guests while on Millsaps 
property and/or at Millsaps functions. 

Alcoholic Beverages 

The Trustees and administration are fully committed to the spirit of the United Methodist 
Church and are equally committed to comply with the laws of the state of Mississippi regard- 
ing the consumption of alcoholic beverages, (which shall include, but not be limited to, light 
wine and beer) on the Millsaps College campus. It is the position of the college that the use 
of alcoholic beverages is not a part of, nor does it contribute to, the total educational empha- 
sis of Millsaps College and to the full and abundant life that God wills for each person. 

The College expects students to comply with the laws of the State of Mississippi and the 
college regulations relating to alcoholic beverages and to accept responsibility for their be- 
havior as members of the College Community. The College does not condone the illegal 
possession, use, distribution or sale of alcoholic beverages. 

A student may consume alcoholic beverages only within the privacy of his or her room 
whether in the residence hall or in the fraternity/sorority facilities and only in accordance with 
the state law which prohibits the drinking of alcoholic beverages for those under 21 years of 
age. Regardless of age and state law requirements, no student is allowed to consume alco- 
holic beverages outside the confines of a student's room. 

Fraternity and sorority facilities are subject to all applicable state laws and city ordi- 
nances. The display, serving, consumption, or any other use of alcoholic beverages is pro- 
hibited in public areas which include the lounges, porches, yards, grounds and other 
external structures of such facilities. 

Consumption of alcoholic beverages for those of age in a student's room in the resi- 
dence hall or fraternity/sorority facilities must never result in irresponsible behavior or con- 
tribute to an environment not conducive to the realization of the primary goals and aims of 
the College. 

The possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages are not permitted in any pub- 
lic area on the campus. This includes all public areas on the campus. Public areas are de- 
fined as any area outside of the student's private room. 

Complete regulations governing the use of alcoholic beverages on campus and at off- 
campus functions may be found in the current Major Facts, the student handbook. 

The use, possession or distribution of narcotics or dangerous drugs such as marijuana, 
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 pro- 
bation, disciplinary probation, suspension or expulsion at the discretion of the Judicial Coun- 
cil, 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 automati- 
cally appealable to the president of the college. 

Social Probation 

Social probation is a warning to a student regarding conduct standards. Its primary pur- 
pose is to serve as a period of time in which a student is asked to prove responsibility to him- 
self/herself and the College. 

When a student is placed on social probation he/she is prohibited from participating in 
extracurricular campus activities such as fraternity/sorority social activities, intramural and 
varsity sports. In addition a student may hold no office of campus leadership. 

When an organization is placed on social probation the organization may not sponsor 
social activities in the name of the organization for the period of the social probation. 



55 



Disciplinary Probation 

Disciplinary probation is the most serious penalty, short of suspension and expulsion, 
that can be incurred by a student. During a period of disciplinary probation any further in- 
fraction 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. 

When a student is placed on disciplinary probation, suspended or expelled, parents 
are notified and asked to come to the campus for a conference with the President and the 
dean of student affairs. 

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

Objective of the Else School of Management. The objective of the Else School of 
Management is to provide managerial and professional leadership to the larger society by 
educating future leaders in business and public administration and in the accounting profes- 
sion, by providing consulting and other services to the community and by expanding the 
body of knowledge in the field of management. With respect to the educational mission, our 
goals are to develop a general management outlook toward organizations and the changing 
environment they face; to foster the ability to organize information 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 provide technical expertise required for entry-level 
positions and leadership attributes necessary to attain positions in general management. 

The Else School of Management has been awarded national professional accreditation 
by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. 

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). Accounting and business administra 
tion majors must complete additional requirements for the Bachelor of Business Administra- 
tion degree (B.B.A.). Economics majors must complete additional requirements for either a

of sophomore economics will normally satisfy the Economics 201 -202 requirement. Transfer 
students will be required to satisfactorily complete at least 1 8 hours of courses offered by the 
Else School of Management to meet the requirement for the BBA degree and the major re- 
gardless 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.
