Why Visit MC?

Why Visit MC?

Mississippi College is a pretty fantastic place. With a gorgeous campus, vibrant student life, & professors who know both your name & your face, it's certainly worth considering in your college search. Located right outside of the state's capital city of Jackson, MC is situated right in the middle of the state. Also at just an exit & an intersection off of I-20, it's perfectly accessible. Unless your GPS terribly malfunctions, there's no chance of getting lost when you're on your way to Mississippi College! So then, what's stopping you? If you have any more doubt in your mind about why you shouldn't hop in your car to check out this place, let me give you a few more reasons why Mississippi College's campus is worth your visit.

Finding Opportunity: Off-Campus Involvment

Finding Opportunity: Off-Campus Involvment

Here's the cool thing. When you move to Mississippi College, you move to Clinton and the greater Jackson area, so while you are a MC student, you are also a member of a much larger community with a ton of cool opportunities. A lot of students forget this, and don't take advantage of the opportunities in the area. 

Treat Yourself Well This Summer

Treat Yourself Well This Summer

I have a confession. The other day, I sat all day on my couch and binge-watched The Office. My sole meal  for that particular day consisted of chocolate chip banana pancakes and peanut butter. Now that's out in the open, I'm here to tell you that you shouldn't spend your summer like that. With the summer heat pounding down and left-over exhaustion from classes, lazy days are sometimes needed, but the problem arises when those days become the entire summer. You only have one body, so treat yourself well this summer. What does that look like practically? We have some ideas!

What's Your Major? // The Truth about "Worthless" Majors

As a freshman, I agonized over figuring out what my major should be.  After a couple of English classes, I knew that I wanted to major in Literature, but I had heard too many people say Humanities majors could expect to flip burgers for the rest of their lives. I prayed and agonized until finally I decided that I would regret not majoring in English. It came down to deciding if I wanted to let fear dictate my decisions for the rest of my life or live the kind of life I wanted.
