Hello! This is Miss Loomer, faculty advisor of the PCC Campus Post blog.
Pensacola Christian College is an amazing school, and as I’ve mentioned to some of our student writers, you just can’t tell how special the spirit is on this campus simply by looking at a picture of our beautiful buildings. What makes this place so unique is the atmosphere created by the godly, faithful, joyful people around here. In my eleven years at PCC, I have grown more and more to love the people I have the privilege of being with every day—this is a great ministry to be a part of!
We are so excited to start this blog so that you can get to know the people here a little bit better. Our student writers are gearing up to write their first posts, but while we give them some time for that, you can get to know a few students who have written some things in the past. As Dr. Mullenix said, for the past couple years, some of our students have volunteered to write e-mails telling about our college. Enjoy reading a few of those e-mails, starting with this first one by Megan, who (at the time of writing) was a brand new freshman getting ready to begin college life. We hope that someday you, like Megan, will be able to come join us here on campus.
Here’s Megan’s post; check back soon for more!
Wow!!! I can’t believe it’s almost time for the school year to start—the moment I’ve been waiting for this whole summer has arrived. It’s almost time for college! There are so many great things about college to look forward to; even picking out a new comforter for the dorm room has been a blast as I picture getting settled in my new room.
My name is Megan, and I am an incoming freshman at Pensacola Christian College this semester. I have chosen to be a physical education major with mathematics education as my minor. I am eager to start a new chapter in my life and to be able to pursue the major that I feel God is calling me to. Being a freshman in college could sound intimidating at first, but once I start thinking about all the new opportunities, for instance new friends, the new rock climbing wall, the feeling of being on my own, and preparing for what God has in my future, college life sounds really great.
I’ve experienced a little bit of PCC life already through the summer work program the College offers for incoming and returning students. I’ve been able to earn much of the finances I’ll need for this first year, and I also got to meet new people and participate in the many activities on campus. My favorite activity was the Wacky Olympics. We played many random games that included water—there was no chance of coming out of that activity disappointed or dry! Spending this summer on campus has gotten me even more excited about being a student here.
I’m especially excited because I’m planning to room with my best friend Rachel. It’s going to be so much fun rooming with my friend!! I can’t wait to be able to make more memories with her and others. It will be fun getting to know my other roommates, and I’m sure we will become good friends.
Picking a collegian is another neat opportunity that I’m looking forward to. During the first week on campus, freshmen get to pick a collegian during what is known as the Greek Rush. Collegians do many different things, but I am most looking forward to being on my collegian’s sports teams. Even if you don’t feel that you have the time to play on an intercollegiate team, collegians allow you to get involved in intramural sports like volleyball, basketball, softball, soccer, or even broom hockey.
I hope this gives you a little taste of soon-to-be college life and helps you get excited about moving to a new place and a new atmosphere.
