My first year was a challenge! I learned so much, and I’m amazed at my growth thus far. My first semester definitely caught me by surprise. It taught me too things, one thing was to never come to class unprepared. The second thing I learned was to don’t forget what you’ve taught.
I also came to find a way to balance your education, family and friends, and your overall health. My way isn’t the best way to deal with being in college. I have so much more to learn, but I found taking to time for yourself and then making time for school really helps. Making time for family and friends should be alternated with in between your work.
Overall, I believe this a great college. I highly recommend you speak to people in your major to ensure you’re on a great stride. It’s also very important to have a great at home support system.

There are so many things I really enjoyed about Mississippi College. The teachers are great, the student life is vibrant and active, and I feel like there are many great resources! I will say that I chose to go to MC because it advertises itself as a small, Christian college; which is true, but at times it seems there bottom line is a little bit too much focused on the money. The academics are absolutely great here! I am in the biology program, and as I am about to start my Master's program, I can already see how much they prepare their students for medical school. I am sure the other departments are just as effective!
I've loved my experience at Mississippi College! The teachers, atmosphere, and student life is great. Location is nice and has a very "small-town" feel to it, however you can drive 30-40 mins any direction and find shopping, activities, etc. The experience here is really what you make of it... you can choose to get involved on campus and be very busy or you can sit back, focus on school and do your own thing. It is pricey, but financial aid is great about working with you and providing assistance. Campus is beautiful and you can always find something fun to do on or off campus at any time.
