Millsaps College

Millsaps College Master Plan

Jackson, Mississippi

Our firm helped the College assess the existing facilities and physical plant and prepare a master course schedule for balanced use of available spaces. A careful and extended analysis of the campus led to several major changes in the physical layout of the College.

The College was re-oriented from North West Street to North State Street to create a new image for the College. An existing street through the heart of the campus was closed, paved with brick and landscaped to form a new pedestrian walkway. A circular drive was designed and built for a new monumental entrance to the administration buildings. Two new entrances to the campus were constructed on the north and south sides of the campus with gate houses to control after-hours traffic. Design services for more than a dozen individual building projects were provided over a period of 19 years. The success of the master planning effort is evidenced by the greatly enhanced appearance and functional efficiency of the College.
