lghllong Late night is a term every Ole Miss student is familiar with, but these students give it a whole new meaning. by Kelley Hunsberger Every Monday night between 6 p.m. and midnight you can find Ole Miss student Heather Owens in the same spot, behind the circulation desk of the Science Library. Owens has been working there since January of her sophomore year. " I really enjoy it. It ' s a nice job. They are considerate of my time constraints, " said Owens, who is now a senior and is majoring in chemical engineering. She added that by working at the Science Library she, " gets to meet a lot of people. " Like numerous other students at Ole Miss, Owens ' day doesn ' t end when her last class is over and as the sun goes down. Instead, between jobs and studying, many students are up half the night, leaving little time for sleep. Owens did express concern that her job does sometimes conflict with her classwork and her sleeping habits. " It does get in the way of my studying, " she said, adding that she doesn ' t always have access to all the materials she needs at the Science Library and that sometimes her work schedule conflicts with group meetings for various projects. As a result, she usually has to go home and study, leaving her only four to five hours a night for sleep. She said that most of the time she is tired the next day. Owens is not alone. From residence hall desk workers, to Cobra Security workers, to those students simply studying and working on projects, hundreds of Ole Miss students are staying up late and burning the midnight oil. In return they are sacrificing their sleep. Laura Houston, editor of The Daily Mississippian, works, along with her staff of section editors, copy editors and page designers until after midnight each weeknight. " If we are doing a football section we usually see the sunrise, " said Houston, a journalism major from Tupelo, Miss. " It ' s common for us to have study sessions down here. " Freshman Web Raulston said that his sleeping and studying habits have changed a lot since his high school days. " I use to go to bed at 11 p.m. and be up at 5:45 a.m. to get to school. Now I don ' t go to bed until four in the morning, " said Raulston, a business major from Chattanooga, Tenn. He also said that he has had to practice better time management. Not all students, however, consider the late hours to be a problem. Kim Minton, a junior chemistry and biochemistry major from Salem, III., works the front desk of Martin Hall every Sunday and Monday night until midnight and said that she doesn ' t mind the late hours. " I ' m normally a night person. Usually the people that work at night are, 2.- lacademii s

Uptown Coffee has become a new favorite place to study among Ole Miss students. by Amy Patrick It ' s the smell of a hot cafe latte. It ' s the sound of papers rustling and laptop keyboards clicking. Uptown Coffee, a cozy little coffee shop located off the Square, has become Ole Miss students ' favorite new place to study. During midterms, finals and regular class exams, there are always people gathered for study groups or by themselves in a quiet corner studying. Nancy Wilson, a senior business major from Shreveport La., said, " The atmosphere is very relaxing. " There are numerous caffeinated choices to choose from for a late night cram session as well as yummy treats in case a midnight snack is called upon. " There are over 100 cups of coffee sold after 6 p.m, " said Jennifer Whitt, an Uptown employee. For those with a paper due, just bring a laptop because Uptown has Internet access. The Internet is wireless, and all you need is a wireless Internet card. Some people enjoy studying at Uptown because it doubles as a social scene. A lot of people study there during the week, it is always likely you will see someone you know. Also, if you are the type of person who enjoys background noise while you study, Uptown is the place to be. There ' s the sound of coffee machines, people talking in the background and sometimes music. " It ' s a bit noisy, like a constant hum, unlike the library where I look up at every little noise, " said Sara Thorn Williams, a junior dietetics and nutrition major from Columbus, Miss. According to Whitt, Uptown is pretty busy during the week; with lots of students studying. " On average there are about 15 to 20 students studying after 6 p.m. " She also said that Uptown ' s busiest nights were Sunday through Wednesday. Getting a head start on studying for the week, Sara Thorn Williams, a junior dietetics and nutrition major from Columbus, studies Sunday night. uptown cof fee 123
