As the semester is ending and graduation is fast approaching, another class of seniors is about to graduate. We will be leaving with a diploma and our own set of experiences that we collected during our time here, and today, I want to share some of those experiences. The stories that follow come from a handful of seniors that were kind enough to share one or two of their favorite memories from their time at MC. And, as everyone's MC experience is different, these stories are as diverse as the students that shared them.
I graduate college in close to thirty days, which is both exciting and terrifying. It's cliche, but it's seriously so hard for me to believe that I'm a senior. I feel like I went to orientation last month, or even just declared my major a few weeks ago. But yet, here I am, sitting in the library working on my capstone project. I've learned that the life of a senior is really different from that of an underclassmen, but it's not something that's talked about very often. Today, I want to invite you guys into the life of a senior, because, whether you're about to graduate high school or finish your sophomore year, you'll be here one day, and I want to give you an idea of what it's like.
My sophomore year, I had a lot of breakdowns. I found myself overrun by anxiety and unable to do life well because I was so overwhelmed. I made myself do everything all the time; I never said no to anyone and I believed that, in order to "be successful" I had to act as invincible as Wonder Woman. I think it goes without saying that, at one point, I hit a wall. I crashed, completely exhausted and unsure of what to do. I thought I was healthy; I was in counseling, I was in a good place with Jesus, I was physically healthy, but I still wasn't okay.
College and scholarship essays can be incredibly stressful to write. It often feels as if so much rides on the words you pick to represent yourself in front of a committee. Why, let's be honest, it can feel as if your entire future rests in how well you can write an essay. We as writers, however, want to give you some advice to hopefully make this time less stressful.
Like most things at MC, the tower gets quieter in the summer. Most of our callers and bloggers leave for the summer to travel, work at camp, or chill at home. A select few, though, stay in Clinton and continue to call the Tower home in the warmer months. You'll be hearing a lot from us over the next few months, so we thought a proper introduction was due. Without further ado...
Hey friends! It's Ashton on the blog today to keep y'all up to date with the happenings of MC life. As you probably know, MC doesn't have fraternities and sororities, but we have a Club and Tribe system that offers students a way to be involved on campus. Today, I'm here to tell y'all about the newest tribe on campus: Chenoa.
Hi friends! It's Ash and Liz here to provide with some smooth tunes to carry you through finals. We know that an essential part of studying is having the perfect background noise to both fuel your productivity and provide you with sweet relief when the stress gets to be too much. We've compiled some of our favorite study music together to make the ultimate finals playlist.
Hello fellow students. It's Ashton here. Within the past ten minutes, I've eaten a tortilla, walked laps around the cubicles, and yelled at people from the tower window. I wish I had a logical reason for why I did those things, but I don't. We are a generation of procrastinators and while it affects our work progress and homework load, it is what it is. We are the #ProctastinationNation and as finals come around, it's the perfect time to embrace it.
