Due to the excessive tickets received by students in the past and the current parking situation, students receiving five or more parking citations, regardless of ticket payment or classification, will be required to appear before the Mississippi College Judicial Council and the SGA Chief Justice at said council’s discretion. Failure to appear on scheduled date will result in disciplinary action by the Judicial Council. Those students receiving ten or more violations, within the course of one semester, will, upon notice, automatically have their parking privileges revoked. If a student is caught parking a vehicle on campus after their parking privileges have been revoked, the vehicle driven by that student will be towed at the student’s expense and additional disciplinary action taken against the student. The Chief Justice shall report monthly on excessive tickets to the Vice President for Enrollment Services and Dean of Students. A copy of excessive tickets will be sent from the Office of Public Safety to the Vice President for Enrollment Services and Dean of Students monthly.
Parking of Non-Automobiles on Campus
Parking spaces on Mississippi College campus are designed to meet the needs of the campus community, specifically those vehicles registered with the Office of Public Safety. Due to the limitations of space and the liability of personal property, trailers, boats, RVs, campers, and similar non-motor vehicles are strictly prohibited from being parked/stored/left on campus.
For the safety of our campus community, hammocks will be hung at height of no more than six (6) feet high at the center point while empty. Hammocks will not be secure to shelters or any other man made structure but should be secure to stable trees only.
Mississippi College accepts no responsibility for tree or limb stability or suitability for "hammocking" nor maintains or designates trees or limbs for this purpose. Consequently, students hammock at their own risk, which includes accepting sole responsibility for determining trees and limbs which are stable and suitable for bearing the occupied weight of hammocks.
Right of the Institution to Investigate
The University reserves the right to make any and all investigations necessary including, but not limited to, polygraphs, interviews, and on-premises investigation and inspection of any residence or living quarters on college property pertaining to alleged violations of this code, or vehicles, backpacks or other personally owned items that are located on-campus or likewise pertain to alleged violations of this code.
Appropriate Dress on Campus
In keeping with the ideals of Mississippi College, each student is expected to dress neatly and appropriately at all times.
Shoes should be worn at all times in academic areas, offices and dining facilities.
Regardless of the intent, display of the following is inappropriate on campus:
ii. Excessively tight and/or form fitting clothing
iii. Clothing displaying alcohol, drugs, tobacco products, inappropriate language, or related graphics,
descriptions or logos inconsistent with the Christian mission of Mississippi College
iv. Clothing that is lewd, derogatory, and/or suggestive
Responsibility for Personal Property
While students do have the right to choose to bring personal items for use on campus, they are responsible for the care and safety of the equipment. All buildings and areas on campus are secured to the extent that they can be. Mississippi College cannot assume responsibility for personal items of students. Students should mark personal items clearly and appropriately so that their identity is evident, should there be a question. The College does not assume responsibility for the loss or damage to student’s property which occurs in college buildings or on college grounds. The student agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the College from any suits, claims, demands or damages whatsoever, resulting from or arising out of the theft of or damage to personal property or injury to the student’s person, family or guests which may occur. Therefore, personal property insurance (which could be included in the parent’s Homeowner’s Insurance Policy) should be considered by residents should there be an interest in doing so.
Flyers on Campus
In order to keep a neat appearance on campus, various policies have been established pertaining to signs on campus. All promotional flyers must be approved by the Office of Student Life before they can be hung on any of the administrative or academic buildings on campus. To gain approval, bring the original hardcopy of the flyer to the Student Life Center (Back Patio BCR) to be reviewed and stamped. Flyers and/or the information on a flyer must be for an event or activity sponsored by a Mississippi College student organization or department.
Once the flyer is stamped, copies can be made and flyers posted. If any flyers are hung without the approval stamp, they may be taken down. To hang flyers or promotional materials in the residence halls, you must get the approval of the Office of Residence Life (Student Life Center). Once your flyer is approved, you may turn in up to seventy (70) copies to the Student Life Center to be distributed by their staff to hang up in designated areas of their buildings. Residence Life staff members in each building have the authority to remove flyers that have not been approved. Be aware that approval may not be immediate. Please plan ahead. Students may post up to 75 copies of their flyer on approved academic and administrative buildings.
