Some of you are about to finish up your first semester at college, and some of you are looking forward to next August when you'll move into your dorms. I think it's safe to say that between finals and starting a whole new chapter in life, both groups are nervous.
The Clock Tower which sits upon Nelson Hall is the icon for Mississippi College. Sure, campus has the Kugel and the Arches, but nothing compares to our Clock Tower, which chimes on the hour and plays beloved hymns. Not only does the Clock Tower ring throughout campus letting its students know they're late to class, but it also looks amazing in any condition or angle. Don't believe me?
Check out these twelve times the Clock Tower looked flawless.
Mississippi College's campus is full of odes to Greek and Roman architecture. (Don't stop reading because I said that. I promise this is an interesting blog!) Our campus was completed in the Neoclassical style, and several Neoclassical architects believed that architecture could actually make you better. Now, while I'm not so sure about that philosophy, there is one spot on campus that gives us incredible insight into the purpose of our education: the Arches.
Our class of 25 spent the semester reading classic works of literature while studying the culture and history of that literature's time period. Our class quickly became a community that was fostered through learning and tackling challenges together. My Freshman Honors Block helped me to develop solid opinions, a foundation of knowledge, and a love for learning.
