Blue & Gold 101 is a First-Year Experience designed to help freshman students make a smooth transition to Mississippi College. Each fall semester freshman students are assigned to a small group consisting of about 10 students. Each group is led by an upperclassman who serves as a peer Mentor for the group. Additionally, each group has a faculty or staff Sponsor.
B&G101 is designed to educate students on how to survive and thrive at MC. Each week's session focuses on a topic pertinent to college life. From discovering your personal strengths using the StrenghtsQuest test, to coping with conflict, to creating goals for life after MC, you will meet with your small group and upperclassman Mentor once a week to walk through these topics together. Plus, it's a great way to meet people on campus who are new and experiencing the same kinds of things.
Student success is often dependent on how quickly and firmly a student finds a place to connect and belong. Blue & Gold 101 is one of the first and best steps to success at MC.
