About Mississippi University for Women

Our students say there's something special about The W. You might think they're talking about our ranking among the top Southern public master's universities or our small class sizes, or our best value ranking in U.S. News & World Report and Washington Monthly. Sure those are important. But what students say gives their education that extra something, is our community - down to earth, welcoming, and intellectually curious. It's what makes them feel at home. Founded in 1884 as the first public college for women in the United States, MUW is a tradition-rich university that has been home to such noted personalities as Pulitzer Prize-winning author Eudora Welty, among others. Over 30 years ago, MUW opened its doors to men. Our four colleges feature more than 50 outstanding majors and concentrations. Outside of class, more than 75 campus organizations make campus life dynamic, interesting, and fun.
