Can men attend The W?

YES! We understand our name can be confusing. Men are welcome at The W and are a vital part of our student body.

The W was founded to provide opportunity. When we were established in the nineteenth century it was to provide an opportunity for the women of Mississippi.

Today, it's an opportunity for all. For more than 30 years we've welcomed men. One in five of our students on The W campus is male.

Serious Studies

You won't find graduate students teaching classes here; all of our courses are taught by professors. And with a 14-to-1 student-faculty ratio, you can expect plenty of one-on-one interaction with your instructors.

The men of The W are studying nursing, business, communication, history, culinary arts, education, and exercise science, among many majors. There are more than 50 academic concentrations to suit your interests.
