Class of 2018 Arrives!

The first week of the Fall 2014 semester is well underway, and it's been a busy one since residence hall staff members, Foundations leaders and others on campus joined in to provide assistance with Move-In Day on Friday, Aug. 22.

That evening, Foundations leaders entertained the Class of 2018 with skits designed to inform about life at Millsaps, and the Freshman Carnival and its mix of inflatable games, music and a photo booth provided a fun setting for freshmen to make new friends. The Fondren Express Trolley gave rides to the nearby Fondren Arts District where students spent time on Saturday, Aug. 24 exploring boutiques and shops, eating at some of the restaurants and learning their way around during "Millsaps in Fondren Day." An ice cream social offered students another opportunity to socialize.

Biochemistry Major Resham Rahat

Resham Rahat vividly recalls her first visit to Millsaps College.

"I sat in a literature discussion about Dante's Inferno and observed a passionate exchange among the students and the professor," recalled Rahat, now a rising senior at Millsaps. "The professor acted as a mere facilitator providing insight and direction in the conversation while the students derived logical and meaningful analyses from the readings. It seemed as though everyone was collectively invested in the development of the discussion and was interested in its eventual outcome. By the end of the class, I knew that Millsaps was where I belonged."

Coming to Millsaps from Meridian, Rahat is now majoring in biochemistry and plans to become a physician specializing in internal medicine. She said her academic experience at Millsaps has shown her how gratifying it can be to accomplish the goals for a class as set by a professor.
