Getting Oriented: Everything You Need to Know About Mississippi College Orientation

After the last finals are completed & the term papers are turned in, the students of Mississippi College leave the comfort of campus & head off to do big things all over the world. Some slip on their Chaco's & head to camp, while others decide to work a new job or learn through an internship. There are even others who get passports & head across an ocean or down the continent to study abroad or do summer missions. A select few of us though are lucky enough to land the best summer gig (in my opinion). We get to stick around Clinton & party with all of you at orientation! Trust me, nothing could possibly be more fun!

If you haven't heard, "Being MC" serves as this our orientation theme. It's a great theme, really. Orientation usually acts as a freshman's first introduction to college life, the first lesson out of the many that will follow. You really do have to learn how to be a college student and in this case, a MC college student. At the same time, a part of me cringes when I think about my freshman self's interpretation of "Being MC."

Something big happens at Orientation. Something that can be intimidating and scary if you don't know what to expect: making your schedule. The good news is you will have a wonderfully qualified advisors working one-on-one with you to help your figure what classes your should take. There are some things though that your advisor may not have time to tell you, so the Choctawk is here to tell you what you shouldn't do.

Our first two orientations have come and gone. The quiet of summer that had settled over campus lifted with the busyness, excitement, and fun of orientation. We loved having our future Choctaws on campus , and so we are throwing it back to last week! Here are some of our highlights!
