Caf Hacks

Caf Hacks

Here's some simple math for you. Eating three meals a day, you'll eat 225 meals per semester (not counting weekends). If you think that's a lot, just wait. For four years in school, that puts you at a grand total of 1,800 meals, give or take. That still excludes weekends. Even if you never eat breakfast (whoops, that's me), you're still eating 1,200 meals Monday through Friday in your college career. With that being said, I personally find it pretty important that those meals be healthy & tasty. 

So then if you're a Caf-rat, if you're a to-go sort of Caf-eater, or if you eat in the Caf in any sort of capacity, read on for some tips on how to tackle eating well in MC's Caf.

Being a Gentleman

Being a Gentleman

Ultimately chivalry is a choice. It is a conscious decision that a man must make everyday to make the women in his life feel special.

An Honest Look at Jeremiah 29:11

An Honest Look at Jeremiah 29:11

I think I had Jeremiah 29:11 memorized before I was even a Christian. I met Jesus after my dad battled (and beat) cancer, so during that season, both strangers and friends were quick to share Jeremiah 29:11 with me. At the time, I appreciated the little token of hope that came with the verse, and genuinely held onto what it seems to promise when it stands alone. But now, I know that there's a lot more to Jeremiah 29:11 than what our culture has diminished it to. I know that might come as a shock to some of you, but fret not, friends.

Growing Pains

Growing Pains

When I turned 21, I became an official adult, but, to be honest, I didn't feel any different. The feeling of adulthood doesn't always come with birthdays. For me (and several other people), there are moments in life that force us to grow up. Here are our stories. 

Life of a Theater Kid

Life of a Theater Kid

I think the phrase "theater kid" brings to mind a very particular personality for most of us. Maybe that character in your head is loud, flamboyant, & boisterous & adds a sprinkle of drama to every aspect of life. Maybe that personality is more laid back, but comes to life in big ways on stage. Regardless, that idea of a "theater kid" is a pretty basic stereotype perpetuated in chick flicks, rom coms & the like. But what about here at Mississippi College? What about the people in the plays around here?

A Day of Kindness

A Day of Kindness

In the midst of all the Valentine's Day hype - the blinding aisles of red and pink and shiny balloons - one important, albeit less flashy, day of February gets shoved to the side, but this day, too, celebrates love: love towards our fellow human beings. This Friday, February 17th, is one of the best days of the year: Random Acts of Kindness Day, and I think we would all benefit from sharing it. 

The Reason for the Season: Valentine's Day & the Saint Behind It

The Reason for the Season: Valentine's Day & the Saint Behind It

Hearts, roses, chocolates, flowers, & everything red & pink; when I think of Valentine's Day, that's basically what comes to mind. All that & of course those massive teddy bears bigger than an NFL lineman that fill the shelves in the holiday sections of most stores. But what is this "lovey-dovey" holiday really about besides an excuse for single ladies to host a Galentine's Night or for cute couple to go on a even cuter date?
