Student Spotlight: Jona Barron
What is your position/title at The Learning Center?
I am a promise student at the Learning Center and I get to work with and get to know other promise students at Mississippi State University.
What do you enjoy most about working with MSU students?
I also completed the College Success class that the Learning Center provides, and the tips that the lecturers provided me with and with much advisement from Mrs. King I was able to successfully survive my freshman year. In the College Success class I got to work with other promise students from the Learning Center and working with them was so fun. I really enjoyed working with them because I got share ideas and gain insight with people who have the same goals as me which was really cool and I am still friends with some of them today.
What is the most important advice you would give students?
The biggest piece of advice I could give to any student is to go to class. I know everyone tells students that but, it is extremely important.
Why should students take advantage of The Learning Center?
If you need help or need better understanding in a class, that is where The Learning Center can step in and help tutor you in the subject. That is why students including myself should take full advantage of The Learning Center.
What are your hobbies or what do you do during your spare time?
In my spare time I honestly just like to hang out with my friends.
What is your major/hometown?
I am a Finance major from Greenville, MS.
This year I plan to get way more involved in school functions and organizations because I realize that college is way more fun when you get involved.
