Hinds’ study abroad trip to Costa Rica an eye-opening experience

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.


‘We Are Family’: Hinds begins celebration of 100 years of service

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!


Fashion show highlights student talent


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.
