Wow, I cannot believe that I am an official graduate of Hinds Community College. To this day, I still look back on the day in kindergarten when my teacher Mrs. Stewart asked me what I wanted to do when I grow up and my response was that I was going to graduate high school, go to Ole Miss and then medical school. As Hinds would end up being the first detour along the way to destination future, I am proud of my accomplishments up to this point. I encourage new Hinds students to be involved on campus and take advantage of all the opportunities offered.
Hinds Leadership and Business students took advantage of a ten day travel abroad opportunity to England. Students and faculty departed for England March 7 and returned March 17.
In the past, if you were to have any questions about your financial aid status, you would have to personally go the financial aid office to get anywhere. With the newest feature that has been applied to my.hinds, a student no longer has to do this unless there is something you believe is incorrect about what you see.
As of this semester, students can click on a link titled either account activity or View Statement Balance. After clicking on this link, the picture shown above will pop up on your screen and give you a calculation of charges, payments by you or financial aid, and anticipated financial aid. If your final number is negative, that shows that you more than likely have that amount coming back to you during reimbursements (split into four refund dates if you do not have any charges after that time).
On February 2, 2013, residence life students from Hinds attended MREAL 2013 at Mississippi State University.
The first blood drive for the Hinds CC's Spring 2013 semester was scheduled for January 29, 30, and 31. You can donate in front of the cafeteria. Although I was unable to donate right off the bat because of class, I made sure I made the time for a donation.
Today marked my eleventh pint (and tenth donation) since I first donated at the age of sixteen. I believe that allowing donors to begin at this age, even if it requires parental consent, is nothing less than helpful to those in need of blood transfusions because with a wider age group comes more blood supply.
If you live in any residence hall whether it's Pickett, Allan-Dukes Whittaker, Sheffield, etc. you know that you are residing with at least four RAs in your building.
How many of you actually go to the cafeteria and say good morning to the cashier, or say thank you to the ladies and/or gentlemen in the lunch line for your food? I've noticed that this is something that the cafeteria workers rarely hear from the average college student.
