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

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!

How to Not Be a Freshman

How to Not Be a Freshman

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. 

Being MC Is Being Yourself

Being MC Is Being Yourself

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." 

Flashcards, Finals, Finished

Flashcards, Finals, Finished

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.
