In a few months, students will flood the campus of Mississippi College, bringing distinct perspectives and life experiences with them. College provides one of the best opportunities for you to expand your mind through classes and the different people you encounter. It's exciting, growing, and sometimes, a bit shocking and frustrating. The truth is, though, that you can encounter different minds without leaving your room. Reading provides us with a way to step into others shoes, explore lands we've never seen, and think thoughts we would have never contemplated. Do yourself a favor and read something this summer. If you don't have any ideas, we've thought of a few based on your interests.

You're done with high school, and you're not at college yet. So what do you do?

Treat Yourself Well This Summer

Treat Yourself Well This Summer

I have a confession. The other day, I sat all day on my couch and binge-watched The Office. My sole meal  for that particular day consisted of chocolate chip banana pancakes and peanut butter. Now that's out in the open, I'm here to tell you that you shouldn't spend your summer like that. With the summer heat pounding down and left-over exhaustion from classes, lazy days are sometimes needed, but the problem arises when those days become the entire summer. You only have one body, so treat yourself well this summer. What does that look like practically? We have some ideas!

Spring break is here for Mississippi College, and I, for one, am incredibly excited. The demands of school, work, relationships, and extracurriculars have completely worn me out. On most days, I feel like I need twenty-four more hours in each day.
