HBCUs in Mississippi—what are my choices?

I have some family ties in Mississippi and am considering going to an HBCU there. How many are in the state, and can anyone shed light on the campus vibes or academic strengths?

There are a total of seven Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in Mississippi. The list includes Alcorn State University, Jackson State University, Mississippi Valley State University, Rust College, Tougaloo College, Coahoma Community College, and Hinds Community College-Utica. Each has its unique atmosphere and academic strengths.

The campus vibes at each of these institutions can vary, but they all generally offer a strong sense of community and support. To get a better understanding of each HBCU's atmosphere, it's a good idea to visit the campuses, speak with current students, or explore their websites and social media channels. Best of luck with your college search!
