Welcome Teams

Mississippi College has two teams that welcome new students to campus each year. Both work very hard to provide a quality experience for new students and show off what it means to be an MC student.

Orientation Leaders

The Orientation Team is made up of Small Group Leaders and OLs Behind the Scenes that put on our summer orientation experiences. Our summer orientation experiences are meant to help introduce new students to campus life, both inside and outside the classroom. New students leave orientation with a picture of what it means to be an MC student, as well as their academic schedule for the fall semester. Small Group Leaders host new students in small groups, connecting them with academic departments and ways to get involved on campus. OLs Behind the Scenes work during orientation on setting up events and literally working "behind the scenese" to insure orientation is a quality experience for everyone.

This year's tentative dates for Freshmen Orientation Sessions:

June 3-4, 2021
June 7-8, 2021
July 22-23, 2021

Applications for Orientation Leaders will go live at the end of September. 

Welcome Week Crew

The Welcome Week Crew is a group of students that works to plan and execute Welcome Week in August. Everyday of Welcome Week is packed with events and activities that show off campus life and welcome new students. Welcome Week features how to adjust to college life, fun activities and events and introductions to parts of everyday campus life. The Welcome Week Crew arrives on campus one week before Welcome Week begins to help prepare for move-in day and Welcome Week. The dates for Prep Week and Welcome Week 2021 are TBA. 

Applications for Welcome Week Crew will go live at the end of September.
