Nestled in Columbus' historic downtown, The W campus is more than 114 acres of beautifully manicured green spaces, gardens, and walkways.
Twenty-three of the buildings on campus are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are landmarks of the State of Mississippi.
Oldest among the historic buildings on campus is Callaway Hall, built in 1860 as the main dormitory on campus. It remains home to many of our upperclassmen.
Plymouth Bluff Environmental Center
A short drive from The W's main campus is the Plymouth Bluff Center, a 190 acre environmental center located on the banks of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway.
This beautiful, sylvan setting offers four miles of hiking trails, an amphitheater, 24 neatly furnished guest rooms and dining facilities seating up to 150. Plymouth Bluff also includes a state-of-the-art conference center, making it an ideal facility for retreats, workshops, and meetings.
In 2006, The W partnered with Accademia dell'Arte to offer the University's Master of Fine Arts in Physical Theatre program. Located in a villa in the Tuscany region of central Italy, this campus offers students a unique opportunity to study their craft and perform for audiences across Europe and North America.
Since 1984, The W's RN-to-BSN nursing program has been housed in our Tupelo Campus, located on the campus of Itawamba Community College.
In 2013, the Culinary Arts Institute in the College of Business & Professional Studies partnered with Hinds Community College to offer the Bachelor of Technology in Culinary Arts program on their Jackson Campus.
In 2014, The W also entered into a partnership with Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College to offer the BT in Culinary Arts to students on their Jefferson Davis Campus in Biloxi.
