At SMCC there are a variety of athletic options for students interested in joining a sports program.
Intercollegiate sports are the highest tier of college sports and can be very competitive. Intercollegiate teams are regulated by the NCAA, funded by the university, and compete against teams from other universities. The division of a sports team depends on the size of the university, funding, and competition level. An intercollegiate school team will be Division I, II or III, with Division I being the highest level.
Club sports are not regulated by the NCAA and are a great option for students not interested in trying out for an intercollegiate team. Club sports are usually student run but can also be funded by the university.
Intramural sports are the most casual and informal. Intramural sports are often free and require very little time commitment.

College is like a home away from home. Whether you're walking to class or coming back from late-night studying (or partying!), it's important to feel safe on campus.
Southwest Mississippi Community College is patroled 24 hours a day by trained security. Dorms can only be accessed with secure key cards so that students can feel confident that they are safe in on-campus housing.
Visiting colleges is one of the best ways to get a sense of the campus and student body. If you'd like to visit SMCC, take Interstate 55 to Summit, MS. If you need to fly, book your flight to Jackson International airport.
