Your Future And You
Men and women trained at Millsaps College
are recognized as leaders in their fields through
out the nation. More important to you than the
business and professional training received at
Millsaps College, however, is the training for
life itself. You can expect your education at
Millsaps to enable you to be "the best of what-
ever you are. "
Your days on the campus will, indeed, be
a journey to maturity. As you study, participate
in campus life, and share experiences with your
classmates, you will feel the thrill of growth.
You will know the delight of discovering new
truths and a clearer understanding of the old
You will be inspired as you share the quest
for truth with young men and women who dream
great dreams for the future--the same dream
that is yours today.
