You don't have to be a face in the crowd. At The W, our small classes mean you will get the attention you deserve. You'll be part of the family! We consistently rank as one of the best public universities in the Southeast according to U.S. News & World Report and Washington Monthly. But a great university experience doesn't have to be expensive! We also have one of the lowest tuition rates in the region.

How The W makes college affordable

Mississippi University for Women has joined with leading social media  platform and California-based Harvey Mudd College, sponsors of the first online mentoring program that encourages young women to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

 

Titled Women in Technology Sharing Online (WitsOn), the six-week pilot program, which is free for students, started in October and includes universities such as the California Institute of Technology, Cornell, Harvard, Princeton, Stanford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The non-credit program has a goal of connecting young women with those who have recognized accomplishments in STEM fields. Mentors will answer submitted questions online, with an emphasis on career demands, rewards and opportunities for success.

Columbus Welcomes You

The town, which sits on the banks of the Tombigbee River, is widely recognized for its historic character. It is home to three National Register Districts and is nationally prominent for its annual Spring Pilgrimage, an award-winning event that showcases homes dating to the 1800s.

Columbus also has a rich literary heritage, both as the birthplace of noted playwright Tennessee Williams and its connection to Pulitzer-Prize winning author Eudora Welty, who attended The W. You'll be immersed in history and culture.

Nearby downtown has plenty to offer, with restaurants, boutiques, antique galleries, and the Rosenzweig Arts Center. Within walking distance of campus, downtown is a place to explore and enjoy.
