Ja’Lyric Molten of Pascagoula is a sophomore at the Perkinston Campus. Involved in Phi Theta Kappa, Reflections Team, Student Government Association and Dog Pound, he still finds time to serve as a residence hall assistant. He also finds time to take classes that will help prepare him for his dream career in architecture.
“I want to complete architecture school at Mississippi State University after I graduate from Gulf Coast. I am especially looking forward to designing houses,” he said. “That is really my passion.”
Molten said he plans to enjoy his second year at the college. He moved into his residence hall room early for a week of training as a resident assistant and said it felt like returning home.
“This campus is really like home to me in so many ways,” he said. “I’m ready to get the school year started now that I’m back on campus, and I look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. Being at the Perkinston Campus is so much fun and gives you a real taste of being away from home, spreading your wings, but in a safe environment.”
“I love the helpful faculty and staff at Gulf Coast,” he said. “They are willing to help you with any problem you might be having. It is just a very friendly place.”
