In the midst of all the Valentine's Day hype - the blinding aisles of red and pink and shiny balloons - one important, albeit less flashy, day of February gets shoved to the side, but this day, too, celebrates love: love towards our fellow human beings. This Friday, February 17th, is one of the best days of the year: Random Acts of Kindness Day, and I think we would all benefit from sharing it.
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.
