Out of all the unique things that Mississippi College has to offer, CAB (Campus Activities Board) events, Welcome Week Crew events, and Residence Life events are among the top of my list. From Welcome Week and the Lighting of the Quad, to a Valentine’s Day “mixer” and a “puppy break,” there are all sorts of events you can attend to meet other students and take a break from your studies. Keep reading to learn about some of the people and events that have helped make MC feel like a second home to me this year.
The truth is rooming with someone is not and never will be perfect, even if it is with your best friend. That’s something I did not understand before my freshman year. As I planned my move to Mississippi College, I was determined that my college living experience must be perfect. I had to get along with my roommate. We had to live in East. (Freshman Nolie was opposed to the idea of community style residence halls. I now realize that there is nothing especially gross or inconvenient about community living.) Our room would be perfectly coordinated but not too “matchy.” Everything would be perfect. Not surprisingly, this need for perfection proved to be a source of stress.
