Study in Mississippi

Posted on April 17th, 2012 by Jenny Frankel

“One-Mississippi, two-Mississippi, three-Mississippi.” Kids (and even some adults) in the U.S. and Canada count this way to estimate counting by seconds. No one is quite certain how the habit came about, but one thing is for sure, the four-syllable word has helped millions of children count slower. People count this way because “Mississippi” is a hard word for kids to pronounce, and because it is rather long, making the counter take a full second on a number. The length of the word also befittingly resembles the length of the river itself.

International students will soon learn that the Mississippi river is the largest river in the United States and it runs along ten states. It ends with the state that bears its name, where there’s plenty to do and see along the river. Mississippi has 345 miles of the river, where locals enjoy fishing, boating and all-around fun. Thousands of people visit the city of Tunica, located in the north of the state, for its thriving casino scene. A little ways south of the river, Vicksburg draws history-lovers for its historical Civil War sites. If you plan to study in Mississippi, Natchez is another picturesque city on the Mississippi river that offers antebellum homes and relaxing settings.

Another popular touristic thing to-do is the Mississippi river tours and cruises, where travelers can sight-see their way through the history of the famous river. From the times of Native Americans settlement, to European colonization, to the steamboat era and the American Civil War, the river has been witness to some of American history’s most important moments. The state of Mississippi and its famous river have history, entertainment and relaxation for locals and tourists. The river is a big part of American history and even today’s culture, and obviously a big part of the state of Mississippi. To experience Mississippi and its famous river one-Mississippi second at a time, study in Mississippi, and witness all of the enchantment first hand.
