     So it’s your first semester on campus, and you’ve just come back from Thanksgiving Break for two or three more weeks of school. You’re rested and lazy, with turkey and dressing still dancing on your tastebuds, and Christmas carols are playing on every set of AirPo...

     The writing center has a large impact on the Mississippi College community in more ways than one. Sure, it provides a place for people to come and learn about writing, but it also trains students like me, who serve as tutors, to be leaders in the community that th...

     Hello, MC Writing Center friends, and welcome to a new month!

     As November entered our lives with her chilly winds, we also caught wind of the greatest opportunity of the semester - the opportunity for you to become a published writer!...

     When I first heard about the MC Writing Center, I assumed I didn’t need to go. The writing center was a place where people went to get help on papers, and I—as an English Literature major—believed myself to already be a “good writer.” Later on, I decided to work t...

     When I was first hired as a tutor almost two years ago, I distinctly remember thinking one thing: “What have I done?”

     As an English nerd (the hopeless kind that perfects the art of reading under the covers with a flashlight), I was used to writing. I...

     Fall has come again and brought with it the beginning of a new school year. Some students will be new to Mississippi College and spend the first few weeks stumbling around lost.

     If this is you, then you are not alone. We all have gotten lost at least...

     It’s the end of the semester, and while some of us will return in the fall, others are off to graduate school, jobs, and other adventures. We always love celebrating our seniors, and on April 25 the MC Writing Program hosted a celebration by the MC letters outside...
