Hi Hinds Family! It is Alexis from IT, bringing you Information Technology’s first blog post for 2017! This posting is about cybersecurity and ways to stay safe online.
National Signing Day is always a whirl wind. Coaches spend months collecting data and going off campus to high schools across the region to seek out prospective players. The most difficult part about it is that nothing is official until signing day. Coaches spend hours on the phone with players and can only speculate what players are going to do until the letter of intent is signed.
Hello Hinds Community College Faculty, Students and Staff. My name is De’Shane Frye. I’m a sophomore mass communications major on the Raymond Campus and a student worker in the Public Relations office. It is with great honor that I am currently enrolled in the Philosophy II course taught by instructor Stephen Wedding.
Being able to experience different climates and landscapes than those of Mississippi, where I have lived all of my life, was one of the reasons I chose to go to Costa Rica with Hinds Community College’s study abroad program. Also, I had always wanted to experience spending time in a culture that does not speak English. I have to admit that I really had little interest in the wildlife of Costa Rica; however, after seeing sloths, monkeys, toucans and crocodiles in the wild, I’m ready to go back. The trip to Costa Rica is one of the greatest experiences I have had in my life so far.
January was a good month to celebrate milestones for both me and Hinds Community College. Both Hinds and I are celebrating anniversaries. I’ve been at Hinds 10 years, as of Jan. 8. But the college is celebrating something much bigger and more important all throughout 2017 – our Centennial!
The Hinds Community College-Utica Campus hosted a fashion show in December at the Bobby G. Cooper Fine Arts Auditorium that featured Hinds students as models and cosmetology and barbering competitors from community colleges across the state. This was the first event of its kind hosted by the campus and showcased the talents of students in Career-Technical Education programs.
Many of the outfits modeled were made by Hinds students in the Fashion Technology program. Others were pieces designed by the program's instructor, Dr. Curtis Gore.
Whether it be a funny moment or heartfelt thanks, every Hinds employee has a story to tell about their time working for Mississippi’s largest community college.
