College and Real Life

College and Real Life

I had an idea of what college would be like. In all my high school musings, I always pictured myself having the time of my life in college. Late night food runs and heart-to-hearts, road trips, and cool events on campus. Even studying for classes and taking tests were fun at my imaginary college. I do not attend my imaginary college. My time at Mississippi College has been transformative. The people I've met, the texts I've read, the pages I've written, and the questions I've asked have caused me to grow.

The Myth of Being Involved

The Myth of Being Involved

One of the greatest aspects of Mississippi College is the fact that you are given a myriad of opportunities to be involved. Numerous associations are just waiting for you to arrive and give your time and talents to them. While this is not a bad thing, I fell into the trap of spreading myself too thin when I began my career at MC. To me, this is what involved meant, and as a Freshman, I wanted to be involved (See my personal definition below), but now, I want to be invested.
