We understand our name can be confusing. Men are a vital part of our student body.
We were founded to provide opportunity. In 1884, when we were established, that was for the women of Mississippi. For more than 30 years we've welcomed men to our campus. Today, 19 percent of our students are men. We have a lot to offer you. Take a tour and see for yourself.
Academic preparation begins at The W.
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.
The W has a competitive tuition - the lowest in Mississippi among public universities.
We strive to keep our tuition among the lowest in the Southeast and we offer a range of scholarships that include academic and subject-specific. We offer in-state tuition to residents of the surrounding states, academic achievers, and military families. We'll work with you to find ways to make your education affordable.
There are plenty of ways to make your mark at The W, from academic honor societies to fraternities. We've got a state-of-the-art fitness center to keep you in shape, and a choice of residence halls to let you live in style.
The W is happy to announce a return to intercollegiate athletic competition for men and women beginning in Fall 2017. If you are interested in being recruited for one of the Owls Athletics teams, please check out the Athletics Department website for important information.
