What kind of person should not attend this school?

There are various student opportunities available on campus, however, a person looking to be involved in a sorority or fraternity may not favor this campus over a university campus.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Since I am on the Ridgeland campus of Holmes Community College, the worst part is the lack of food options on campus. The student union has a kitchen and counter, however, there isn't food sold there. The college is slowly working towards offering more on campus food options. There are food trucks that come by every day of the week and sell local food for $6 or less. It would be great though if the student union also offered food.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

It is smaller and more intimate than other community colleges. It is a small campus yet it is spread open but not too much. Classes are smaller and you can get more time with teachers than other community colleges allow. I go to the Ridgeland campus and it is quite nice.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell my high school self to pay attention in class. There were many instances that an assignment seemed familiar yet I could not put my thumb on why. I would tell my high school seft to keep all assignments and notes from any English or Science class because they will be useful in college. I would also tell my high school self to keep all her writings and poems because she would enter into this amazing club that would appreciate her talent. I would tell her that it is ok to have fun as long as you make sure to get the work done. I would also tell my high school self that when she gets to college, life will be better and safer. I would tell her to just have confidence and new friends show up randomly at just the right moment. I would make sure she has hope and she is more excited for college than I was.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The kind of person that should not attend this school is someone who just does not care about their or anyone's education. They would just be losing money and wasting their and everyone else's time. The other kind of person who should not come to this school are the ones who cannot accept people for who they are or who they deem to be. This is an accepting school and bullying is not tolerated at all.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When applying to college, choose the one that is best for YOU, not the one your friends, boyfriend or parents want you to attend. You are the one who will attend for 4 years, make sure it is the best fit for you. Learn the deadlines for applying for admission, FASFA and scholarships. Don’t let an opportunity pass you by because you missed a deadline! College is expensive and it will be more enjoyable if you aren’t paying for it out of pocket! Earning scholarships is a challenging, daunting very competitive task. Extracurricular activities and volunteering are your friend for scholarships! Do not procrastinate. It may seem everyone is pulling all nighters preparing for tests and projects, however if you plan your time wisely it isn’t always necessary. However sleep IS a necessity for achieving good grades and staying healthy. Coffee and power naps will only get you so far. If you are always on the move or studying, you will miss some of the best days. Slow down and breathe. Take it all in. Life doesn’t wait and if you miss it, it is gone forever. There is no going back. And last, enjoy it!

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you are someone looking for a great community college, this is the place for you! Holmes is definitely for someone looking for a higher up community college with a great teacher/student ratio. The instructors really care for their students and really want them to succeed.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If i could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, i would advise myself to study harder, take lots of online classes, and make more goals for myself to accomplish. I would tell myself to worry less about high school drama, and pay mor attention to my english teach about writting essays. I would tell myself to not hold back and have all the fun I could. I would tell myself to take more advantage of all the teachers and staff that were willing to help me. I would direct myself to stay on a straight and narrow path. I would tell myself to develope a stronger relationship with the Lord, and keep true friends closer.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice i could give myself if i could go back in time would be to more confident of myself and not to be too nervous. I could have enjoyed my first year in college if i had been more confident of myself. I also would have been able to make more friends if i had not been so self-conscious and shy.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing is the lack of variety in the courses offered. Mostly we only have the basic core undergraduate courses, we dont have a lot of choices for electives nor do we have any foreign languages available besides Elementary Spanish. There are no art courses on campus, besides Art Appreciation. I would have liked to have taken some foreign language or art courses while I was getting my associates, so when I go on to a four year college or university I could focus on the courses that I would have to take for my major.

Describe the students at your school.

My Classmates are very friendly and helpful. The good thing about attending community college is that you are able to meet people from all ages and walks of life. The older people on campus are really sweet and fun to talk to. Alot of my classmates are coming back to college or getting another degree and it is a really inspiring to see them work hard to improve their lives.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Learning to manage and organize my material would be the biggest advice I would tell myself in high school. I was a organized senior and very neat, but the college life is demanding of excellence. With all notes being labeled, headed, highlighted, there is no room for a slight misplacement of information. Staying on top of your schoolwork is the key to college successfullness.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Before attending Holmes Communtiy College I wish I would have known the detailed evaluation of each class and what the class had to offer. Not being familiar with the name of a course sometimes is overlooked when it could be really helpful.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Honestly my freshman year of college is going great with no complaints. The only frustrating thing is i can not take more than twenty-one credit hours, but thats any college.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College is definitely time for fun and partying but the academics should come first because students are there to get an education. I would tell myself to have all the fun in high school because college gets more and more serious the further you advance in completing your major. Battling athletics and academics is not so easy at times. The mind has to be responsible and self-controlled to accomplish what needs to be accomplished while you are in college.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known that there are zero fast food restaurants near by instead of 10 to 25 miles away. I wish I would have known that there was nothing fun to do as well.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There are no fast food restaurants nearby. The school is right in the middle of a small town with a maximum of maybe 50 people living in the city. There is nothing fun to do either.
