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."
I don't know about everyone else, but I am striving to turn in final projects and to take final exams. Notice I didn't say struggling, but striving. If we flashed back to Freshman year, I would not be able to say the same thing. I was struggling. Since my Freshman year, thankfully, things have changed.
