story by sommer sneed The School of Engineering at the University of Mis- sissippi was the first engineering school established in the state. The Board of Trustees ' program for natural sciences was founded at the university and later, in 1900, The Univer- sity of Mississippi School of Engineer- ing was officially founded. The dean of the School of Engineering is Dr. Allie M. Smith. He is the leader of a variety of engineering branches including chemi- cal, electrical, civil, mechanical, and geological engineering, and computer science and telecommunications. These divisions are housed in Weir, Carrier, and Anderson halls on the University campus. In addition to the many branches of engineering, the School of Engineer- ing also offers a number of extra-curric- ular activities and prominent student organizations, such as Tau Beta Pi. The University of Mississippi is the home of the Mississippi Beta chapter of Tau Beta Pi, the national honorary fraternity for engineering students.

In con- glomeration with the school, the research centers provide great resources for further- ing technology, and are paramount to an engi- neering student ' s edu- cational experience. These centers include the Center for Computational Hydroscience, the Center for Wireless Communications, the composite Materi- als Research Group, and the Mississippi Mineral Resources Institute. The primary function of the School of Engineering at The University of Mississippi is to educate future engi- neers for the betterment of our society. The engineers emerging from the Uni- versity of Mississippi will clean up our environment, boost the economy, and ensure the safety of impending genera- tions, while carrying on the respect and the great educational traditions they have learned at The University of Mississippi. The School of Engineering at Ole Miss is comprised of six academic departments that will advance their graduating students with career objec- tives for the future.

ART story by jili dark The University of Mississippi College of Liberal Arts takes pride in being the old- est academic division in the University. The college was founded in 1848 with just four professors. In one hundred and fifty years, it has grown into the largest of the University ' s schools, instructing over half of the students on cam- pus. With 230 pro- fessors, The College of Liberal Arts provides a broad spectrum of comprehensive curricu- lum, offering classes from the fine arts to the humanities to the sciences, graduates can be rewarded one of five different degrees: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Music, and Bachelor of Social Work. The college of Lib- eral Arts has graduated over 30,000 students during it ' s existence. The school offers majors in nearly fifty fields. Such majors offered include English, Anthropology, Modern Languages, Classics, Fine Arts, Forensic Science, Jour- nalism, Biology, Chemistry, History, music, psychology, and political science. This past year, several major news events occurred in the College of Liberal Arts. A generous donation, a prestigious award, a new foundation, and a change of location all have brought the school into headline attention. In 1997, a donor gave $660,000 to The University of Mississippi. It ' s purpose was to fund a Chair of Faulkner Studies in order to commemorate Oxford ' s most famous late nd Science The College of Liberal Arts provides a broad spectrum of comprehen- sive curriculum. by jaci leas writer. Previously known as the Howry Foundation, the Faulkner Studies department will now have more funding to further become the superi- or authority in William Faulkner studies. Liberal arts professor Dr. Colby Kullman received the Elsie M. Hood Outstand- ing Teacher of the year Award. This highly regard- ed honor is given annually to a University instructor who has proven to be remarkable in his or her field and in com- municating its principles to others. Kullman was chosen by nominations from faculty, students, and alumni, and by a committee whose members were previous recipients of the award. Along with a cash prize and limelight attention, Kullman will also have his name inscribed on a plaque and hung in the Chancellor ' s office with the rest of the awards ' honorees. The Ventress Order, which is named for University founder James Alexander Ventress, has been established to support the College of Liberal Arts and give alumni the opportunity to remain a contributing part of the University. To become a member, alum- ni must provide a generous financial gift beginning at a minimum set by the founda- tion. The monetary support is intended to ensure an excellent liberal arts education when state funds are insufficient. 92 academics
