At the heart of the south lies a state where the sun always shines, the people are friendly, and picturesque sceneries never end. It's the great state of Mississippi. This state's all-American charm attracts students from all over the world. Over the past decade, thousands of international students have gone to study in Mississippi, fascinated by the state's interesting history, remarkable culture, and impressive academics.
Located in the "Bible Belt" of the country, the state allows international students in Mississippi to get a taste of the American southern lifestyle. With a population of nearly three million people, Mississippi is surrounded by the states of Tennessee (to the north), Arkansas (to the northwest), Louisiana (to the southwest), and Alabama (to the east); it is bordered by the famous Mississippi river, the country's largest river that runs from Minnesota down to the Mississippi Delta and ends in the Gulf of Mexico. The state is almost entirely composed of lowlands and has many rivers and lakes. More than half of the entire state is covered in forests, which explains why Mississippi's nickname is the Magnolia State. International students who study in Mississippi can enjoy the temperate, subtropical climate of this southern state.
