First of all, I am in band which helped me meet lots of new people. I am also involved in BSU (Baptist Student Union). BSU is not like structured exactly like church at home. It is a comforting place where we fellowhip together and worship God. The majority of my friends that I have made this year are also involved in BSU. Honetly there is not much to do on or around campus. But, don't let that deter you, you can hang out with friends and there are a few activities around campus. Moving on to acedemics, don't think that because Holmes is a community college, that it is going to be easy. You still have to work hard and believe me, I never used to study in hig school. You are still able to get the same education as 4-year universities offer, but for a fraction of the cost. The cost is the reason why I am at Holmes, because who could pass up a full paid band scolarship as opposed to thousands of dollars at a university? The band scholarship covers classes, the dorm, and the food plan. I meantioned the food plan and I would like to mention that the food in the cafeteria is pretty good. Sometimes I get tired of it, but then I can always go to the Canteen, this is not the cafeteria and it is commonly called "The Can". It serves hamburgers and chicken nuggets and such. The band scholarship also covers "the Can" at lunch time, other than that it cost to order food from there. Honestly I did not want to go to Holmes in the beginning, but it really is great now. I like the small community feeling of Holmes and I think it will really prepare me for nursing school.

I am pleased overall, but I wish that there were more instructors so that the waiting list would not be so long to enter the nursing program. The registration process can be very tedious with very long wait times. The communications is not very good, I had a hard time selecting classes this semester because no one could tell me which classes I was given credit for. In the system it appeared that I was given credit but when I tried to register for a certain class the computer would not allow it and the counselors could not help me, so I could not do early registration.
