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

"Breathe. You have all the time in the world to do amazing things for others and for yourself, so stop beating yourself up. Stop focusing on what others are doing, and choose your own route of happiness. So what if you're the only person from your graduating class at ICC next year? You're loud, bubbly, and charismatic; people will like you! You'll make at least 50 new friends your first day of class, so stop fretting! Also, try to enjoy every moment of your Senior year a little more. On Homecoming night, dont be so frazzled. As you stand on the court in your great white dress, look at the people around you and just be thankful. Bask in it because the ceremony didn't last nearly as long as you hoped. Finally, do NOT participate in the senior prank. Yes, you will have a blast terrorizing the school with your classmates, but it really wasn't worth going to jail for. Breath, Katherine. Take a look around and realize that these hallways are only yours for a second compared to a lifetime. Oh, and you won the Superintendant Scholarship. :-)

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the many clubs and organizations that allow you to get involved. Here at ICC, we have everything from Modern Language Clubs, to our recruiting team, Indian Delegation. We have the Baptist Student Union, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Wesley House for religious organizations. Our All-American Band boasts some of the greatest musicians this side of the Mississippi, and our band is bigger than Ole Miss's and Mississippi State's! But these are just a few. There is ALWAYS something to going on!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Everyone here is SO HELPFUL. Not once have I encountered a professor or academic advisor who didn't want to help me when I needed it. Teachers and advisors are easy to approach and to talk to. They understand us as students and will go the extra mile to help, while bettering us as individuals. You can't beat that!

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 tell myself a couple of things that I have learned during my first year of college. First of all, I would tell myself to enjoy my family and friends while they are available. In high school, I took my friends and family for granted, thinking that they would always be there. However, I drifted away from them during my first year at college, and I almost lost my stepdad and little sister in a horrific car crash. I cannot imagine what my life would be like without them, and I'm glad I realized just how precious they are. The second thing I would tell myself is that I should take time to slow down and enjoy life. In high school I was always so rushed and busy. I never took time to just sit down and think about how wonderful life was, and I became slightly pessimistic. I am so glad this changed when I got to college! I learned that, even through stress, life is beautiful, and it deserves to be savored and enjoyed to the fullest!

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

I wish I would have known that college is not what people make it out to be. When I was in high school, my friends who had already gone to college always elaborated about the fun and freedom college offered, but they never mentioned what hard work it is. It is not that I mind hard work, because I love striving to achieve my goals and working hard, but it would have been great to go into the experience knowing what was ahead of me instead of experiencing a huge shock once school began.

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

I believe the worst thing about Itawamba Community College is the lack of available classes. It seems like most of the classes, especially during the spring semester, are geared towards people who want to be truckers, welders, or other technical vocations. When I was looking for classes that I actually needed for my major, a lot of them were not even offered, even if it was a continuation of a class offered the first semester. I think there should be more variety offered to students.

This school offers two seperate campuses, one in Fulton, MS and one in Tupelo, MS. Fulton is a nice small town but not far is the Tupelo Campus which offers a larger town and more to do as a student socially. Many students attend both campuses for different classes. ICC is a great school when a large college campus seems to be "to much" it is smaller and easy to manuver and know where you need to be and when. There are many offices and services available to help the student 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 tell myself not to rule out smaller schools or two year colleges. I would tell myself to look at what the campus has to offer that would help me succeed in my classes such as tutoring and writing centers. I would tell myself to consider basic needs like food and laundry if it would be easily accessed and of good quality. I would remind myself to look at internet and computer access and technology offered at the college. The last thing I would tell myself would be to check how secure and safe the campus is. If I considered these things as a senior it would have given me a direction and helped when considering different colleges. A bad college experience can be made from the small things like not being able to access a computer when it is critical to write a paper or being served a greasy, unhealthy meal. There are going to be many students on campus so competition for basic items should be a consideration. Then I would say don't give up no matter what, good luck.

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

I would tell myself to stay focused. Everything you do your senior year is critical. Not only are your grades critical, but the things you are involved it. The more good things one is involved in the better oppotunities become readily available. If i could go back in time to my senior year i would tell myself to start applying for scholarships immediately.

What's unique about your campus?

Icc has the best atmosphere. It is small enough to where you know alot of people, but big enough to where there is always someone else to meet. From the intermerual sports to the pep rallys icc is the place to be.

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

In high school, seniors are excited, nervous, and ready to move foward and take that next step in life. The freedom to do what ever you want at anytime when your off at college is a great feeling, but college life is more than partying, its the key to the rest of your life. Making the right decision, can help you stay focus on your career in the future. Enjoy yourself while your young, but also get the education you need, so you will never have to depend on anyone for anything, as long as you have that degree. As, long as you have that education to fall back on, everything will be in your favor.

Describe the students at your school.

My classes include diverse groups of people with different backgrounds, beliefs, opinions, and lifestyles, but somehow we all fit together as a family--a group of individuals working toward similar goals.

My school is relatively small and therefore can offer the closeness and personal connections that some larger colleges cannot.

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

I would tell myself to stop worrying so much. As a high school senior, I was so nervous about starting college. I spent too much time worrying about making new friends, fitting in, handling more difficult classes, accepting more responsibility, and paying for college. I was terrified of trying something new--something outside my safe little world--and, even worse, failing at it. Within my first week of college classes, I knew I had just wasted the past year of my life worrying for nothing. It is so inspiring to be surrounded by people who are so different from me but are still pursuing the same basic goals that I am. I have met so many amazing people along this journey--teachers, classmates, and friends--who have inspired me and changed my life for the better. I have learned a lot and grown as a person as a direct result of my experiences with these people. If I could talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to stop worrying and assure that scared young woman that college is just the first step to bigger and better things in her life.

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

I would tell myself to go the college immediately upon graduation of high school. There are not any good paying jobs out there without an education. You need to wait on having a family until you are finished with college and have a good career established. I've seen the road ahead of you and it is not a pretty one. You will work hard for little money; you will barely put food on the table for yourself and your children. You will one day become a displaced worker and go to college and have an even harder time making ends meet. I know, unemployment doesn't pay enough to keep anyone alive. So, take this opportunity and go to college now and change your outlook for the future because your future depends on it!

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

The only thing that I don't like about Itawamba Community College is that my classes are on the second floor and there is no restroom. You have to go down two flights of stairs to get to the restroom which is sometimes difficult for me; I have problems with my knees. The only way you can use the elevator is to have a key and the only way to get a key is to have a doctors statement saying that you need one. I think they should have a restroom on each floor.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Itawamba Community College is a very beautiful campus. The teachers that I have had so far are very nice and helpful. They seem to really care about the education of the student. I recommend anyone to attend this college.
