Finding Home on Preview Day

Finding Home on Preview Day

Two years ago, after already deciding to come to Mississippi College, I decided that attending Preview Day would ease my nerves about college being right around the corner. I'd known about Mississippi College since about 7th grade after attending a summer camp here. From then on, Mississippi College always came up in conversation and every time I would think back to how much I loved MC. 

Lessons from my Senior Year

Lessons from my Senior Year

Hey friends, it's Elizabeth, and welcome to the end of the school year. 'Tis the season for warm weather, bittersweet good-byes, and reflecting on how you've grown over the past year. A few days ago I met with a friend of mine, and she asked me the top three things I'd learned this year. It's actually a pretty tough question, and I'd encourage you to ask yourself and your friends. Also, since I tend to be long-winded and refuse to be constrained to three, here are seven lessons I've learned during my senior year of college. 

Farewell Choctawk

Farewell Choctawk

Hello friends, it's your favorite graduating senior, Elizabeth, and I'd be lying if I said I'm excited about writing this blog.  I started working in the Tower during the fall of 2012 as a caller, and then for the past two years I've gotten to work on the blog! I've genuinely loved this job and have made some priceless memories with co-workers that have become my best friends.

Procrastination Techniques

Procrastination Techniques

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.
