Millsaps Bubble Survey

For Students:

This survey is for Dr. DeRouen’s Writing for New Media class.  The final project for this class is composing a multi-media project that focuses on Millsaps or the the Jackson area.  We narrowed our project by focusing on the Millsaps bubble, both academic and social.  We would really appreciate it if you took a few minutes to fill out this survey so that we can get an idea about what students think about the Millsaps Bubble.

Thank you,

Madeleine Calcote, Victoria Sherwood, and Katherine Wroblewski

Millsaps Enrichment Offers Beginning Guitar Class—HALF PRICE for you!

Thursdays, April 17- May 8 (4 class mtgs.)
6:30 – 8:00 p.m.; Cost: $90 –only $45 for you (plus guitar and a $12 materials fee payable to the instructor the first night of class)

You can learn to play the guitar! Its simplicity has made it one of the world's most popular musical instruments. In contrast to “concert classical guitar,” which may take a lifetime to master, simple "chord" strumming can be learned in just a few weeks. If you are interested primarily in learning to play casual “living room/campfire” guitar, all you need is a guitar, the desire to learn, and a little practice. This course will teach the basic skills of guitar accompaniment: the most common major, minor, and 7th chords, various strumming patterns, chord groupings, and a representative selection of folk songs. (Reading will not be taught in this course.)

Jimmy Turner has performed extensively throughout the South and Midwest.  He has performed with the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, Mississippi Opera, and The Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra.  Mr. Turner has been heard in recital on Mississippi Public Broadcasting, and he has served as an adjudicator for the Mississippi Federation of Music Clubs.  He maintains an active private studio and a busy performing schedule. He serves on the adjunct faculty of Millsaps College.

Come by AC100 to register.


MS 5K Pride Run 2014

We are very excited to announce that we will again be hosting the 2nd Annual Mississippi Pride 5K Run/Walk. This Pride Run is the first of its kind of Mississippi, and in its first year alone raised over 2,000 dollars for the Human Rights Campaign. This event in the past has unified the Jackson LGBTQ community and allies, and Millsaps wants you to be part of this community event that will this year benefit the Campaign for Southern Equality. The Campaign for Southern Equality is an activist group for LGBTQ civil rights and liberties that primarily focuses on gaining equality in the South.

The Pride Run will be April 26th, at Mississippi’s state capital, and begin at 2:00pm. Day of Registration will begin at 12:30pm, and will cost 30$ for the general public, 15$ for students, and have free admission for any child with an adult. There will also be guest speakers and various organizations present beginning at 12:30. If you wish to register and prepay prior to March 20th on our online form, you will receive a free t-shirt.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Devin Winsett:

For your convenience, you may pay online, by mail, or at the event.
