However, at some point along this road rests Oxford, a town that makes up for its lack of size with a rich Southern history. Shaded under towering oak and magnolia trees, Oxford is the birthplace of William Faulkner, the Ole Miss Rebels and The Grove. While Ole Miss has been recognized as distinctively Southern, its beauty and traditions have influenced others throughout the country. Today, more and more students are traveling up, down and over to call this university their home. Based on the university ' s enrollment statistics, 67 percent of Ole Miss students are from Mississippi. The remaining 33 percent are mainly composed of students from other Southern states, but there is an ever-growing number of students from farther regions. Whether they are from the Northeast, the Mid-West or the West coast, these students have seen what Ole Miss has to offer and have embraced and added to the culture. " Ole Miss is definitely what I expected it to be, " Lauren Williams, sophomore accountancy major from Danville, Calif., said. " I am able to get a great education and still be able to go out and have fun. It offers the perfect balance of the two things for 22 Cultures The entire culture here is so unique. {charlie dettbarn} Senior, History story by MARY CLAIRE JAGOR me, and I have loved being here. " Williams said one of the biggest differences between California and Ole Miss is that the people here are much more easygoing and open. " I have had no trouble meeting people, and they seem to go out of their way to be nice and introduce themselves, " Williams said. " At home, people tend to be more introverted and keep to themselves. " For those who are not accustomed to such a hospitable lifestyle, Oxford ' s friendly charm is shocking yet enticing. Liz Duffy, senior from Chicago, admitted her first visit to Ole Miss pleasantly contradicted her previous stereotypes of the South. " My friends and I all thought that people from the south were hicks, and though it may sound a little extreme, I thought I would see a bunch of farm boys and rednecks walking around, " Duffy said. However, she found a much different place from the one she expected. " I had no idea I was going to see a charming town with some of the preppiest kids on the face of the earth, " Duffy said. " For a little southern town to have all that fashion is amazing. My friends at home are shocked at the cocktail attire I wear to football games. " Charlie Dettbarn, senior history major from ABOVE Winslow Rumph, Richard Dixon, Jeremy Hudson, Betsey Kelly, Phillip Psalmond and Bella, Psalmond ' s dog, gather together to illustrate the stereotypical backgrounds of the different cultures of America that are represented at Ole Miss. Richmond, Va., did not know what to expect when she came to Ole Miss, but she claimed she could not have picked a better place to spend her four years in college. " The entire culture here is so unique, and I ' ve never been to a place where so much emphasis is placed around football games, " Dettbarn said. " There is so much etiquette, planning and celebration involved in all of it. " Rachel Ruello, senior journalism major from Chesterfield, Mo., agrees friendliness, hospitality and good manners are some of the characteristics that come to mind when she thinks of Ole Miss. Although she came to Ole Miss from the Mid-West, Rnello was actually raised in the Deep South. Born in Slidell, La., she moved to Pass Christian during elementary school and spent time traveling from her home on Mississippi ' s coast to visit family in New Orleans. She moved to Missouri in 2001 when she began high school. " The Mid-West way of life, especially in St. Louis, was much more fast paced, and the people ' s overall dispositions were much less friendly. It was a place where arriving on time meant you were thirty minutes late, " Ruello said. Ruello defines Ole Miss as the epitome of the South, and by moving back to Mississippi, she realized the cocktail parties, football games and togetherness were what she was missing and what she needed. " It is all about family, friends and old-time tradition. You come down here, and no one is a stranger, " she said. With students from other states not mentioned-from Texas to New York to Alaska-it is apparent that although Ole Miss may seem perfectly Southern, it can still appeal to all kinds of people and cultures. Cultures • 2 " ) HI ' — — — „— % m M With the Princeton Review ranking Ole Miss as a double threat of partying and studying, students have a standard to maintain. photographs by JOSEPH WARNER story by LAUREN PEDROSO £ f ; ? tfU? 24 ' Princelon Review Rankings s soon as one walks onto the beautiful campus of L the University of Mississippi, red and blue flags greet visitors and students with the saying, " Ole Miss, A Great American Public University. " It is hard not to notice the delicate detail of Southern history and warm hospitality surrounding the university from the shady oak trees in The Grove to the welcoming, diverse student body have a strong academic mindset. And in turn, the) are the of these rankings did not cause exeitement among the university administration and staff either. " I don ' t think people pay much attention to it honestly. I personally feel the people who partake in these surveys do not represent this university as a majority; the majority of the students who come through this university that crowd the sidewalks. Aside from this picturesque setting, the university holds eight positions in the recent annual publication of The Princeton Review ' s " The 366 Best Colleges, 2008 Edition. " Categories ranging from politics, demographics, partying habits and academics were only a few of those in which Ole Miss was ranked. No need for an orientation here. This is not the first time Ole Miss has been ranked in this publication. According to its website, " for over 25 years, The Princeton Review has been students ' and parents ' No. 1 choice for obtaining the sawiest information on college admissions. " Many of this year ' s rankings are up from previous years with the most popular being Ole Miss ' title as the No. 2 party school in the nation. Now, not only was the university named the country ' s second top party school, it was also ranked No. 3 for " Hard Liquor, " No. 10 for " Lots of Beer " and No. 9 for " Major Frat and Sorority Scene " out of 366 colleges nationwide. Little did The Princeton Review know that the university has taken many roles in an effort to rid itself of a party school reputation and gain a stronger academic one. The university ' s " Changing the Culture " campaign has made large strides towards focusing attention away from these trends and educating the students and family of Ole Miss in the importance of a healthy learning environment. Brittaney Tate, junior exercise science major from Macon, Ga., was not ecstatic about the news. " The Princeton Review should recognize our strong academic programs instead of shining so much light on the negative aspects, such as partying, " Tate said. Many returning students feel the same way as Tate; however, the overall perception from newcomers and freshman alike at Ole Miss can be summed up in two words: " It ' s cool. " News FAR ABOVE Tailgating in The Grove is just one of the many reasons Ole Miss ranks above other schools in the partying category. ABOVE The student section of Vaught-Hemmingway Stadium is packed out as students show support during the Florida game. OPPOSITE Rebel fans are known for their extravagant table settings, like these ingredients used to make mimosas, while tailgating in The Grove. ones who succeed, " Kerry Tew, project coordinator of the Luckyday Success Program, said. Escaping the shadow of the party scene, students at Ole Miss are truly prospering in the academic realm and in their personal lives. One will find that the campus newspaper, The Daily Mississippian. has earned the No. 9 spot for " Best College Newspaper. " Ole Miss was also given the 18 " ' slot for " Students Most Nostalgic for Ronald Reagan. " Josh Lawrence, junior journalism major from Beaumont, Texas, was flattered with the university being ranked No. 1 7 for " Students That Pray on a Daily Basis. " " The campus ministries are amazing, and I personally believe they ' re making a difference, " Lawrence said. Contrary to being labeled by The Princeton Review as No. 4 for " Students Who (Almost) Never Study, " Ole Miss continually produces some of the nation ' s top graduates, including 24 Rhode Scholars, five Truman Scholars and seven Goldwater Scholars. The Lombardi Program on Measuring University Performance ranks Ole Miss one of the top-50 research universities in the nation. The university ' s School of Pharmacy, School of Business Administration and the degree programs in forensic chemistry and physics also all rank top in the nation. Just because Ole Miss students participate in one of America ' s premier college traditions every weekend during football season does not mean they are not studying during the week. Faye Walter, sophomore chemical engineering major from Pontotoc, made a good point on this subject: " It ' s great The Princeton Review has recognized our university. But. don ' t mistake our dresses and bow ties in The Grove for any tiling less than what they are. The students w ho are here to further their education w ill be back iti The Grove accepting their diploma when they graduate. " Princeton Re iew Rankings • J " ) Here we are quality of life truly giving _- f ope for Africa, an organization that strives to help people and children all across the African i continent, has found a home at the University of Mississippi. After traveling to Uganda in search of a group that would promote saving lives, Patrick Woodyard, junior international studies major from Hot Springs, Ark., decided Hope for Africa was the group he wanted to start at Ole Miss. In Africa, he saw children without parents or food, babies plagued with AIDS and people without a hope for tomorrow. All of these problems were the inspiration he needed to raise money in an effort to help save African lives, he said. Woodyard, along with fellow group members, has already donated $23,500 to help the people of Uganda. The organization began after Woodyard went to Kenneth Townsend, Hope for Africa adviser and Alliance Africa member, for advice regarding raising money and donating the proceeds to Africa. With Townsend ' s help, Woodyard created Hope for Africa and immediately saw an interest among the student body. " This organization cares about the people, and none of the money is being pocketed, " Woodyard said. Last semester, Hope for Africa held a benefit concert at The Powerhouse, which had performances by PF Flyers, Colour Revolt and John Love and Thomas Cooper. The organization also organized a letter-writing campaign and sold Alliance Africa T-shirts to raise additional funds. Woodyard, who is also the Sigma Chi philanthropy chairman, donated $16,000 from the money raised during Derby Day, the fraternity ' s philanthropic event, and gave it to the organization. However, $13,000 stayed within the Oxford community to help those in need here. Other projects planned for the semester include another benefit concert and a clothing and gift drive called " Christmas in improving the in Oxford by life to Africa September. " While Woodyard was in Uganda this summer, he saw the pain that existed in Africa and wanted to know more about how the money could help, he said. Most children in Uganda are uneducated and know little about AIDS and STDs. Woodyard said a 16-year-old girl asked him while he was in Africa: " I heard if you had sex with someone and if you jump up and down four times, yon could not get pregnant. Is this true? " Another girl was asked about the AIDS virus, and she explained it as " HIV dies our parents. " After seeing this pandemic firsthand and its effects on Africa, Woodyard knew this mone was going to people who need it. " This money was about saving lives, " he said. Lee Taylor, junior liberal arts major from Grenada and Hope for Africa secretary, said she has tried to help spread awareness of this organization throughout campus. She noted the importance of donating money to Africa but also taking the time to make a difference in Oxford. .

A t the beginning of the school year, a Friday afternoon class is just as unbearable as the swel- tering Mississippi heat. Students in these never-ending lectures pass the time by daydreaming of a million plac- es they would rather be. While lying in bed can be rather appealing, sitting on a sandy beach with a cold beverage is much more enticing. Unfortunately for the students at the University of Mississippi, the clos- est ocean is at least five hours away, so the chances of making it back in time for Sat- urday ' s football game are highly unlikely. How- ever, a place only 20 minutes from campus possesses most of the ameni- ties a day at the beach has to of- fer. Sardis Lake, familiar to students sim- ply as " Sardis, " was constructed in the 1930s as a reservoir to control flooding across Lafayette, Panola and Marshall counties. Recreational activities, such as fishing, boating and hunting, are popular in the area, but students have adopted activities of their own, making it as much of a tradition here as The Grove. While the sand more closely resembles dirt and the wooded atmo- sphere is far from tropical, Sardis Lake gives students a vast expanse of beach- front real estate to enjoy the water and sun with their friends. When the week- end begins, caravans of dirt-stained pickup trucks and SUVs toting co-eds in swimsuits, Styrofoam ice chests and fishing poles can be spotted traveling down College Hill Road. " I have never seen another place like it, " Liz Duffy, senior hospital- ity management major from Chicago said. " The first time I went there was one night during Rush week freshman year, and I still think that was one of the most fnn parties 1 have ever been to. People tailgate out of the back of pickup trucks around a huge bonfire, and then go back the next morning to swim and lay out. It ' s kind of like a weekend play- ground. " Recruitment week at Ole Miss is also recognized as a " silent week " be- cause incoming freshman and Greek members are not permitted to converse outside formal recruitment activities. Therefore, it has become a tradition for freshman to avoid the bars and spend their nights out at Sardis. " It ' s one of the best parts of freshman year because you get a chance to hangout with just your class, and you can meet people you would have other- wise not met in a crowded bar, " Holly Mayatte, sophomore marketing major from Wiggins, said. Matt Rutherford, senior political science major from Memphis, agreed Sardis is an experience very different From the one in the bars. " It ' s almost like an escape from the monotony of the Square. " Ruther- ford said. " It ' s a real release to drive down those country back roads with your friends and be outdoors, wheth- er you go camping or boating. " " I can ' t remember a spring at Ole Miss since m freshman year that didn ' t involve a few pretty days at Sardis. My dad went to State, but even he remembers going on fishing trips to Sardis when he visited Ole Miss in the ' 70s, " Virginia Thompson, senior insurance and risk management ma- jor from Lexington, ky., said. Other popular activities at Sardis include skeet shooting, swim- ming, riding four-wheelers or off-roading. " I shot a gun for the first time when I went skeet s h o o t i n g there, " Regan Shackelford, senior famih and consumer science major from Atlanta, said. " Everj timewego.it is an adventure. It ' s a place where you can get stuck in the mud and still have fun. " A drive down the rocky dirt road to Sardis ' beachfront is often inaccessible for smaller cars and sedans. When the ground is damp, sometimes even larger SUVs are un- able to avoid being bogged down in the mud. " I thought it would be a good idea to follow some of my guy friends who were going off-roading one night, and we ended up trying to get my Yukon out of the mud un- til 6 a.m.. " said Kourtney Fargason, senior elementary education major from Nashville. " I still enjoy going to Sardis. but 1 will never take m own car out there again. " Siinlis • 29 From Italy to Florida, students travel the globe searching for the best experiences has to offer. photographs by MADISON HALBROOR story by ALEX MCADAMS I _ or college students, spring break is usuallj associated with beer guzzling and wet T-shirl contests, but Ole Miss students Cassi Carpenter and Drew Brooks experienced two vacations that were quite different from the norm. Cassi Carpenter, senior journalism major from Clarksdale, traveled across the Atlantic for her break. In a ministry effort, Carpenter and other students flew to Italy for a week as a part of Campus Crusade, a Christian organization at Ole Miss. " Campus Crusade is an interdominational ministry. Their main goal is to have people come in and really grow in their relationship with the Lord and be able to go out and teach others about him, " Carpenter said. The mission trips are the ultimate goal of the organization, so students can lead others who would not have heard of Christianity ' s doctrine otherwise, Carpenter said. When the troupe of students arrived in Italy, they spent time in Florence and Rome where Carpenter saw historical landmarks such as the Roman Coliseum. During that time, they tried to minister to people in Rome, including tourists, in the metros and other public places. After their brief stints in Rome and Florence, the group traveled down to southern Italy where their main focus of ministry was in a small village called Palermo. Once there, they encountered a great deal of college students. Carpenter said. " We would go to the University of Palermo campus and hand them a tract. We made ourselves visible on campus and had people approach us. We had a concert one night at a bar, where [two members of the group] played real fun, bluesy music that has a Christian message, " she said. What surprised Carpenter the most was that even though Vatican City is located in Italy, the country does not have a large Catholic-or even Christian-following. " Most of their cathedrals have been turned into museums. You hardly see anyone in there worshiping, " she said. " You would think that Italy is the Christian center of the world, and it ' s not. " On the other side of the world, Drew Brooks, senior political science major from Rnoxville, Tenn., spent his spring break in a more traditional way by relaxing on the beach in Destin, Fla., with his two roommates. Surprisingly, the wet T-shirt cliche did not Fit into this vacation either, Brooks said. " It [Destin] doesn ' t have a party scene like Panama City. It ' s more of a family-oriented destination, " he said. Brooks and his roommates were all 21 and tried to " bar hop " in Destin, but the rewards were not what they expected. " The bar scene was more for older people. There were places like Fudpucker ' s, where I (),()()() middle-school and high-school girls hung out, but that wasn ' t what we were looking for. There wasn ' t really a bar scene catered to college-age students, " he said. I lowever, the lack of a big party scene did not discourage Brooks from having a great spring break. " It was nice being able to relax for a week. Destin has the best beaches on Earth. They ' re certainly better than Mexico ' s, " he said. FAR ABOVE Spending a week in chilly Breckinridge, Colo.

Utter silence suddenly fills the crowded room as a voice booms a question over The loudspeakers. Murmurings among the people in the crowd quickly replace the silence. The groups glance furtively around for fear that the opposing groups might eavesdrop on their heated debate, an occurrence that is repeated several times throughout the night. Surprisingly, the place being described is Two Stick, sushi restaurant by day and bar by night. Every Tuesday, Two Stick hosts a trivia night that attracts a crowd of semi-obsessive regulars. To participate in the event, contestants must pay a cover charge ranging from $5 on a regular night to $10 on $1,000 night. All the money collected from these entry fees is the prize the winning team receives at the end of the night. The more devoted participants normally arrive at the bar about an hour and a half before trivia begins at 1 0:30 p.m. People separate themselves into teams and sign up with a team name of their choosing. The variety of team names is seemingly limitless and quite amusing with names ranging from " Holy Crap! Hallelujah... Where ' s the Tylenol? " to " The P-Poppin ' Shastabears. " The atmosphere in Two Stick before trivia begins is similar to that of any other bar in Oxford. As zero-hour draws near, a more competitive spirit begins to filter through the air. The bar employees themselves take the game very seriously. To lessen the likelihood of cheating, Two Stick does not allow any cell phone use during trivia. If any person is seen using a cell phone, then the entire team is disqualified from the competition. The contestants also take the game very seriously as socialization among teams is extremely minimal and the competition level skyrockets once the game begins. Also, many participants keep their drinking to a minimum, so they will compete at the peak of their mental capacity. As teams deliberate the answer to a question, they keep their voices as quiet as possible in order to prevent other teams from overhearing them. Still, the competition itself is relatively simple. The first four categories consist of five questions each that are worth one point a piece. The final round, which consists of five categories, is dubbed the " wildcard " round. Each category has multiple answers, and the contestants may list up to five answers, making the final round worth 25 points. The categories encompass trivia from all aspects of life; previous category topics have included " Also a Divinity, " " Nickelode on Cartoons in the ' 90s " and " Famous Erics. " Teams are made and broken during this last round. Many of the competition ' s most ardent participants plan their week around the event. " I can ' t think of much that would keep me from missing Two Stick Trivia. If I had a test the next day, I would be sure and study beforehand, " Rob Derivaux, junior accounting major from Jackson, said. The chance of winning the jackpot is the main attraction bringing devoted trivia patrons back week after week. Even the cover charge does not faze the attendees. " I don ' t mind paying money to play trivia. First of all, the cover charge is not that much in comparison to other bars. But the best part is that you can win your money back as well as everyone else ' s, " Meghan Scott, junior liberal arts major from Lucedale, claimed. Yet, the spirit of competition and the lure of victory seem to be the most alluring part of the night. " We [our team] have had several second-place finishes. I ' m certain our first-place win is going to be any week now, " Derivaux said.

These women prove that the ladies of Ole Miss can hold their own in pageants. Bailey, a 2004 graduate, was this year ' s winner of the Miss Arkansas pageant. She was second runner-up three years in a row before winning the competition. During a year away from pag- eants, she sat in the audience at the Miss Arkansas pageant and could not stand being on the sidelines. Bailey desperately wanted to be back on that stage. That very night, Bailey made the deci- sion to return to the world of pageantry. Only a year later, she was crowned Miss Arkansas. " I am incredibly fortunate to have been awarded this service opportunity, " Bailey said. " I get to travel the state every day and teach children the importance of making good decisions and setting goals, along with encouraging them to dream big. If I had given up on my dream, I wouldn ' t be preparing for the Miss America pageant. " Bailey did not begin competing in pageants until she was 16 years old. It began when she was nominated by her sopho- more class to represent them in her high school ' s beauty pageant. After the pageant, the directors of another local pageant, the Miss Teen Conway pageant, approached her about participating. " It took a lot to convince my parents, but they finally gave in. I didn ' t win the pageant but did place first runner-up and was awarded $400 in cash prizes. I was hooked, " Bailey claimed. Bailey was an active member of the Mississippi Beta chap- ter of Pi Beta Phi at Ole Miss, which is the same chapter former Miss America Susan Akin belonged to. After participating in sev- eral campus organizations, she won the title of Miss Ole Miss her senior year. " I am a very proud Pi Beta Phi alumna and very active in my alumnae club, " Bailey said. " Susan Akin is a wonderful representative for Mississippi and Pi Phi. I can only hope to be the second Mississippi Beta Miss America. A large portrait of Ms. Akin hangs in the Pi Phi house, and I would love to be displayed right beside her. " Bailey has been involved with the Miss America Organi- zation in some capacity for over seven years, which awards well over $45 million in scholarships every year on the local, state and national level. " I am very proud and honored to be a part of the nation ' s largest scholarship provider for women, " she said. The best advice Bailey has for anyone who wishes to be involved with pageants is to be who you are. She says to always be proud of what you stand for and all you have accomplished because it is so easy to get caught up in the pettiness and negativ- ity of it all. " People will always find something to criticize you for, and you have to stay strong, " Bailey said. Pageant preparation is key, and the process can be quite lengthy. She said you have to be ready both physically and men- tally. " Physical fitness is a huge part of your well-being, and when you realize you will be on stage in front of thousands of people in a swimsuit, you have to commit to a healthy lifestyle, " Bailey stated. A private interview is a large portion of the score, and full preparation is needed for that. Bailey stressed the importance of knowing about current events and about how you feel on contro- versial issues. " You can ' t just be able to give a talking point. You have to be able to back up how you feel and why, " Bailey claimed Another large portion of score is the tal- ent competition. Whether a participant is sing- ing, dancing or playing the piano, Bailey said it is imperative each contestant does her best. " I work with a voice coach as often as I can, " Bailey stated. " For strength and endurance, I have to do vocal warm-ups every day. You have to feel comfortable with everything you are doing and also wearing. Finding the perfect song or evening gown isn ' t always the easiest task. You have to invest more than just your time into your goal. " With all the work Bailey put into preparing for the pageant, it would seem that being in pag- eants is not just a hobby but also a way of life.

" Oftentimes a child believes what their parents believe, " she said. " Once yon reach 21, for bet- ter or for worse, yoLi begin to form yonr own opinions because you can ' t lean on yoLir parents any- more. " Moorehead offered her son advice on his 21st birthday that she hopes he will take with him the rest of his life. " You ' re an adult now. Now, you pick up the pen and begin writ- ing your own history, " Moorehead said. " It ' s a liLige hurdle becaiise being 21 means more than just being able to do things. There are responsibilities. It ' s the real world. " Tyler Clemons, sophomore history major from Oxford, believes turning 21 is significant but not as much as others make it OLit to be. " I think 21 is just another number, " the 19-year-old said. " When you turn 18, you are con- sidered an adult, and by vour 21st birthday, voli are more of an adult. But that ' s it. You can ' t lean on your parents anymore. You ' re just older and more independent. " Maggie Middleton, a 23-year- old law student from Lula, agrees with Clemons and believes turning 21 is not as special as it might have once been. " It ' s hard to compare be- ing an adult now to when I was 18 because there are no real differ- ences, " Middleton said. " Of course, you reach the age of maturity but for most, especially in today ' s time, we are adLilts at 18. It ' s like you get three years of practice being an adult between 18 and 21. " Navkaten Aujla, junior po- litical science major from Punjab, India, says turning 21 will be harder for her because of the additional re- sponsibilities she will face as a legal adult. " When I turn 21, 1 have to take care of all the citizenship requirements myself, " the 20-year- old said. " I can ' t rely on my mother anymore. It is a lot of work, and it all falls on me. I really don ' t want to turn 21. " For Aujla, her 21st birthday also signifies the beginning of her search for a mate. " Twenty-one is the age that shows you are matLire enough to start looking for a partner, " Aujla said. " In my culture that ' s when you are ' arranged ' in a marriage. My parents will start looking for a guy for me based on a list of qualities they wish he ' d have. Once they find one, they bring him to me, and I can either find him acceptable or not. " For John Brooks, senior po- litical science major from Rnoxville, Tenn., turning 2 1 was a milestone that means a lot to him. " There are four birthdays you remember the most. Your 16th birthday, for the girls, the 18th birth- day, the 21st birthday and your 50th birthday-the last one mainly be- cause that means you ' re old. " Brooks said. " The 21st birthday is, in many ways, like a rite of passage. Once you go through it. you are older, wiser and maturer. It ' s some- thing that is really exciting. " Turning 21 • 59 story by JULIE WARD photographs by JOSEPH WARNER 40 ' Oxford Nightlife Known for it ' s unique character, the Oxford square is home to many restaurants, retail stores, and bars. Venues with different looks, food and even drinks populate the square. Finding a place that fits your unique personality and preference is not hard. Having a place that fits your personality when it comes to socializing is important, and Oxford is full of an eclectic variety of social scenes. Therefore, investig ating the differenl specials, dishes and atmospheres for each location is important to Oxford ' s nightlife. Here is a complete list of Oxford ' s main nightlife spots. Two Stick is Oxford ' s only sushi bar and therefore the place to get " sake bombed. " The bar recently moved from its location beside Petra Cuisine into the space previously occupied by Longshot Bar next to Parrish Baker Pub. Two Stick is another top music venue on the Square and draws a crowd to its trivia night on Tuesdays and its $1 Pabst Blue Ribbon night on Wednesdays. Proud Larry ' s Voted as the state ' s best live music venue by readers of Mississippi Magazine, he recently renovated Proud Larry ' s has wo indoor levels and a porch, which are usually filled with music lovers. Founded in 1993 by three college students, Proud Larry ' s has a stage where many legends such as Warren Zevon, Vlose Allison and Elvis Costello have played. Manx local and up-and-coming artists now grace the stage and draw large crowds. When the kitchen closes at 10 p.m., the two ars at Proud Larry ' s begin to pick up. Two Stick Parrish ' s is Oxford ' s version of an old Irish pub. It offers live music from local bands and never charges a cover. In its front and back bars, Parrish ' s offers 11 beers on tap, including four flavors of Lazy Magnolia beer brewed in Kiln. The bar also has a revolving list of daily specials, including " Whiskey Wednesday " when bourbon onl costs $3. Recognized in national magazines as a romantic place to take a date for delicious cuisine, 208 South Lamar can be a great place to grab a few drinks. The bar is small and only has a few r places to sit, but the bartenders are experienced, friendly and have a varietj of fine liquor at their disposal. Oxford Nightlife- 41 X The Blind Pig Murff ' s The Blind Pig, located between Maison Weiss and Jewels by Annette, is the newest addition to Oxford ' s nightlife. The pub features a variety of beers and hosts local music artists. " It has the feel of a British pub, " Emily Coakley, senior marketing major from Nashville, said. " It plays techno music, but it ' s laid back and less crowded than other bars on the Square. " Once a favorite place of writer Larry Brown, City Grocery ' s upstairs bar has become the hangout for graduate students, especially those attending the law school. " Outside of the law school, City Grocery is the place where you can go and know that you ' ll always run into a familiar face, " Will Davis, law school student body social chair, said. City Grocery also has a balcony overlooking the Square and like the adjacent balcony at the Burgundy Room, is a go-to spot for the early birds. Located next to what used to be " The Gin, " Murffs is a two-story casual bar that has three pool tables, two dart boards, TVs and a couple of arcade video games. There is no loud music at Murffs, allowing for conversation, and happy hour lasts every day from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Some might wonder if The Library will shortly become the monopoly of Oxford nightlife. It has three sections: a sports bar filled with flat screen TVs and a large projector; the original section and home of DJ Mario which has two bars, a stage and dance floor; and the newest addition, a patio bar. " Though there is always at least a cover charge of $10, The Library is the bar to go to when you want to run into people and have guaranteed fun, " Rourtney Fargason, senior elementary education major from Franklin, Tenn., said. The Downtown Grill ' s upstairs bar becomes a hot spot on the weekends. Everything about the Grill exudes class, from its mahogany bar to the well-dressed crowd, to its. baby grand piano. The bar also boasts a specialty martini menu and weekend visits by a local jazz trio The Grill ' s upstairs area is spacious with plenty of tables to fit large groups. The most coveted tables are beside the bar ' s large windows, which overlook the bustling Courthouse Square. Above Old Venice Pizza Company is the Burgundy Room, a martini and cigar bar with locations in Jackson, Starkville and Memphis. Students fill the Burgundy Room from wall to wall on weekends. Comfortable couches and chairs in the back of the bar are accommodating to large groups, and the most coveted spots are on the balcony overlooking the Square. " The Burgundy Room has the best martinis in town, and our drink specials always draw a crowd, " Jason Burks, 2006 Ole Miss alumnus and the bar ' s assistant general manager, claimed. 42 • Oxford Nightlife Pearl Street Pasta Known for its slogan " Drink ' n Heavy at The Levee, " The Levee is an Oxford nightlife staple, which offers daily drink specials and live entertainment. The bar attracts a younger crowd since it admits 18-year-olds and typically charges a less-expensive cover. The Levee opens its patio bar on warm nights, which can be a good place to take a break from the loud music inside. Toddy ' s, a bar in The Levee ' s basement, admits only 21-year-olds. It has tables and a dartboard and is typically more laid back than tbe party scene upstairs. Jubilee is The Levee ' s next-door neighbor, but the crowd and atmospheres of the two bars are significantly different. The bar, which typically attracts an older non-Greek crowd, offers live music Thursday through Saturday. Jubilee offers 12 beers on tap and offers 2-for- 1 drinks to ladies every Wednesday. The bar boasts in its slogan that Jubilee is " where everybody is everybody and nobody is nobodv. " After all the mouthwatering pasta dishes are served, Pearl Street becomes a spacious setting for nightlife. It hosts beer pong tournaments and has weekly drink specials. Every Wednesday, ladies can enjoy 3-for-l wine and service from The Real World: Sydney star, Dunbar Flinn. " Pearl Street is an upper-scale venue than your regular square bar, " Flinn, Ole Miss alumnus from Natchez and Pearl Street barten der, said. " Like Burgundy and Grocery, Pearl Street caters to a smaller, more refined crowd with the knowledge and expectation of good taste. " It would be bard to find an Ole Miss student that did not frequent Night Town his or her freshman year. Night Town is Oxford ' s largest venue, which normally hosts rap groups like 17 " ' Floor; however, other artists, like country music giant Pat Green, have also played on Night Tow n ' s stage. Most people associate Night Town with dancing, dollar shots, fishbow Is and Monday night penny pitchers of beer. The bar, located on Jackson Avenue, also has numerous billiards tables for those wary of the packed dance floor. The Rib Cage bar is located in the basement of the restaurant, and its entrance is on a side street. The bar makes the best of its small space with inexpensive beer and a friendly atmosphere. Friends can play a game of darts or sit down to sip on beer and socialize.

The restaurant and bar is also the home to trivia nights every Tuesday. Recently, Two Stick had to move to the old Long Shots building. While the sushi and the trivia nights attract a regular following, the move has a lot of people complaining. The new location only has one bar, and the trendy tables where you sit on the floor were replaced with boring booths. Many claim part of Two Stick ' s charm was its original location. Is the new location an upgrade or a downgrade? " It ' s nice, but I like the old Two Stick better. The new one has more room but not the same atmosphere as before. They got all new furniture, and it ' s not the same. The old one had a window punched out with a plant growing out of it. That ' s what made it so cool. " {lizzie williams} Senior i JFarley Hall] After a year of being homeless, the Department of Journalism has moved back into Farley Hall. This fall, Farley reopened after undergoing major renovations and the addition of the Overby Center, which were made possible by a $7.5 million gift to the department. Some claim the renovations were needed, but others say they were ostentatious. Is the newly renovated building an upgrade or downgrade? " I think that Farley Hall is an upgrade because journalism is continuing to grow at a fast rate, and it is important that Ole Miss keeps up with the needs of journalism majors. I support the new school of journalism. " {sederia gray} Sophomore, International Studies EH " The new Farley Hall is amazing for two reasons: it looks great and houses the Overby Center for Southern Politics and Journalism. The functionality and beauty of the classrooms will greatly benefit students ' learning environment, and the Overby expansion will allow for research and programming. " {rebecca bertrand} Graduate Student, Higher Education 44 Upgrade Downgrade [Cowboy Mario Bull at Library] — The Library has gone country. Seriously. This semester, The Library introduced a country music night. Since it is The Library and they do everything big, DJ Mario becomes Cowboy Mario every Tuesday night and gives up his rap and hip-hop for country. The most interesting addition is the mechanical bull that the crowd can ride. Many people think this is a fun way to break up the monotony of The Library. However, others think the mechanical bull is a bit much. Is this country version of The Libra r an upgrade or a dow ngrade? " All I ' ve got to say is Monday night wash your Wranglers because Tuesday night you ' ve got Mario and the bull. " {jeffpayne} Junior. Accounting ! I [Bleecker St.] The food court in the Student L nion also experienced some renovations this summer. A few new restaurants were added. including a new sandwich station called Bleecker Street. Bleecker Street offers many healthy options that other stations do not offer (the only thing that they fry are the potato chips). They also sell many homemade desserts, including cupcakes, cookies and muffins. However, many claim the restaurant ' s prices are too high unlike the other stations in the Union. Is the new restaurant an upgrade or a downgrade? " It ' s always nice to have a change and more variety of products to try. " (ryan perkins) Senior, Biochemistry " Their food is delicious. I really enjoy it. " {iesha warmack} Senior, Criminal Justice " It looks nicer and classier than typical fast food restaurants. " {laura refsland} Junior, Political Science " I don ' t like change. It ' s not what I ' m used to. I liked the old one. {dee gardner} Senior [Taco Bell] Taco Bell on University Avenue received a facelift this summer. The building was not very aesthetic on the outside, so it was redone to look more modern. Some students like the new look and are more likely to dine in rather than zoom through the drive-through. Others are not impressed and think the changes are a bit over-the-top. Is Taco Bell ' s new look an upgrade or a dow ngrade? [Bishop Hall] Bishop Hall was also among one of the buildings on campus being renovated. The old cement railings were replaced ith black metal ones. The first floor was completely redone; benches were added in the hallway, and a station for the vending machines was constructed. The stairs leading to the second floor were demolished to make way for the construction of a pavilion. Many students like the new look, but others are bothered In the inconvenience the construction causes in getting to class on time. Is Bishop ' s renovation an upgrade or a downgrade? " The inside is brown and teal and looks like a ' 70s Diner. " {lizzie Williams) Senior " They actually molded it to fit in with the rest of campus. I also like that they ' re making it more accessible. " {r an perkins) Senior.

These legends penetrate all social groups and make students ponder the reality of these rumors. No one at Ole Miss can agree on the validity of the rumors as everyone has differing opinions about the amount of truth in each.

BELOW LEFT The pipes of the tunnel ' s under campus lead the brave adventurer into a corridor of darkness. Photograph by JOSEPH WARNER. [Ghost at Rowan Oak] Lauren Freeman, senior journalism major from Dallas, said she does not believe in ghosts, but the story of Rowan Oak ' s ghost intrigues her nonetheless. She said the ghost story centers around a young girl at the Rowan Oak estate in years past. " According to what I ' ve heard, the daughter of Faulkner or a friend of hers jumped over the lining of the balcony on the second floor of Rowan Oak and died, " Freeman said. " Her spirit is said to still exist on the property. " According to Freeman, the history of Faulkner makes the story more haunting for eager listeners. " Just knowing Faulkner and the type of person he was, it ' s easy to believe such stories, " Freeman said. " It adds just that extra bit of spook to the story. " Stephen Monroe, instructor of English at Ole Miss who researched Faulkner as part of his master ' s thesis, said the legend behind the ghost stems from stories Faulkner told his children. " William Faulkner invented ghost stories about Rowan Oak for his children, who, by all accounts, believed their father, " Monroe said. " The particular story relating to the ghost at Rowan Oak comes from a story he told his children. He didn ' t want his children on a porch on the second floor of the house, so he told them a little girl who once lived there fell one day and became a ghost. " Monroe does not believe in ghosts, but he does believe that if Faulkner had become a ghost, he would roam his former Rowan Oak estate. " Rowan Oak was his favorite place in all the world, and so I suppose it might be his favorite place in all the underworld as well, " Monroe said. He added that Faulkner ' s niece. Dean Faulkner Wells, has written a storv on the legend of the ghost titled The Ghost of Rowan Oak. Lillie Flenorl, senior journalism major from Cordova. Tenn., was in high school when she first came across the legend of the underground Ole Miss tunnels. Flenorl was doing research on James Meredith when she learned about the story. " Several sources I was using in my paper talked about how there were underground tunnels used to get James Meredith from class to class, " Flenorl said. " It was interesting to read about it. but I just don ' t beliexe it ' s true. " Sydney McGaha, senior English education major from Tupelo, said she has heard the legend as well but only in passing. " I ' ve heard that there were underground tunnels that they used to get James Meredith from his dorm to classes and from classes back to his dorm. " McGaha said. " But like a lot of old campus stories, I don ' t know 100 percent either way [fit ' s true or not. " Bill Anderson, the construction manager for the university, said that while he cannot say for sure whether James Meredith used the underground tunnels, it is likely that he did not. " The only tunnels we have under this campus are the steam tunnels that run over campus, " Anderson said. " We also have tunnels over by The Depot, which are still there but covered up. " The tunnels are just large enough to fit the pipes running in them and not much else. Anderson claimed. " The tunnels are not tall enough at all. " nderson said. " It would be incredibly difficult for a grown man to move through those tunnels. " [Free Tuition and Grades] Blanton Box, junior broadcast journalism major from Fairhope. la.. said that she hears many rumors and legends, but the one that always comes up is one involving free tuition. " I " e heard that if you get hit on a crosswalk you get straight Vs tbat semester and free tuition. " Box said. " It goes a lot with the storj that if your roommate commits suicide during the semester you get the same perks. " Box does not believe in this urban legend, however. " I mean, it doesn ' t really make sense thai the continued on page 48 l rban Legends 47 continued from page 47 university would pay for your tuition or give you A ' s when we are here to earn an education, " Box said. " It could be true, but I don ' t believe it. " Kristen Robinson, junior marketing communications major from Brandon, does not believe in this story either. She said it just does not make sense. " I ' ve heard that if you get hit on a crosswalk, you get free tuition or if your roommate commits suicide, you get straight A ' s, " Robinson said. " I don ' t believe either, but when I was a freshman, I did believe the crosswalk story, especially since there are so many on campus. " Denise Knighton, associate registrar, said the university does not give grades to students who have not earned them under any circumstance. " Here at Ole Miss, we do not give students grades they have not earned, even in a situation such as this one, " Knighton said. " You receive the grades you earned during that semester. " Marc Showalter, director of the University Counseling following Rush because of a girl who once jumped off the roof of Crosby Hall, " Simpson said. " You hear that they are trying to prevent [suicidal] girls who did not get into a sorority or the sorority of their choice. " Deirdre Robinson, recent graduate of the University of California-San Diego and a native of Batesville, said she has heard rumors of suicide watches at many schools. " I think it ' s silly, " Robinson said. " I mean, you hear rumors about this at every school, but it never makes any sense and is really ridiculous for anyone to even believe it. " Lorinda Krhut, director of Student Housing and Residence Life, said her department does not alter any of their normal practices and policies during specific times of the year. " We do not do anything that ' s different than what we do any other time of the year, " Krhut said. " I ' ve heard of these kinds of legends, and these are things that don ' t typically happen here or many other places. " Krhut did say, however, that there is a policy regarding Center, said these tragic events are sad, and the university does work to provide students with something. " We work hard to get that student the help they need, whether at the health center or here with us, " Showalter said. " If a student loses a roommate, we offer counseling services to help that student get through the emotional trials. But free grades and tuition just seem fanciful. " [Suicide Watch] Emily Eskew, senior journalism major from Brandon, said she has not heard much about a suicide watch, only a few stories. " Suicide watch is where girls are watched because of an incident at Crosby Hall in the past where someone killed herself, " Eskew said. Lori Simpson, senior journalism major from Ingram Mills, said she heard a lot about suicide watch during her freshman year here. " I heard that Martin Hall was under suicide watch suicide watches in the Department of Student Housing and Residence Life. These watches are aimed at students who may be a danger to themselves. " A suicide watch as we know it generally involves a specific student. We may be notified by another office, such as the Dean of Students or the Counseling Center, about a student who might be a danger to themselves, " Krhut said. " We then alert our staff to the situation and the student staff checks on the individual to make sure they ' re all right. We just don ' t target students randomly or as a group without notification of possible problems. " Daphne Robinson, twin sister of Deirdre Robinson, said the legend of suicide watch is like a lot of legends. " Legends, like suicide watch, start like rumors. The only difference between these two products of idle minds is the longevity, " Daphne Robinson said. " Rumors die quickly because no one believes them. The best legends are the ones that play on people ' s beliefs and faith-that ' s the stuff the best legends are made of.

Photograph by RYAN MOORE. rhis year, the University of Mississippi held the largest racial reconciliation event the campus has ever witnessed in the first scavenger hunt for diversity, the OMazing Race. The OMazing Race, directed by Josh Davis of the Alumni Center, included 20 teams of four people all racing for a grand prize of $2,000. This, however, was not the main goal of the program. The focus of the race was really taking four complete strangers with diverse backgrounds and getting them to work together. Each team consisted of people of different races, sexual orientations and religions. " Its goal was to promote students to step outside of their boundaries and realize that race is not such a scary thing, " Rennett Mize, OMazing Race volunteer, said. The 80 contestants chosen, out of over 200 applicants, had two days of events. The first evening was an orientation dinner followed by various activi- ties, which included " cultural mapping " and " truth circles. " " There were many international students involved, and it really gave a new element to the issue of race, " Mize said. Cultural mapping split the crowd into differ- ent groups based on similar answers to questions that were asked, such as: " What religion were you born into? " Then, each group would have to find some- thing else they all had in common. The point of the activity was not just to show how everyone is differ- ent but also to show how everyone is similar in some ways. The contestants also participated in an activ- ity where they split into small groups called " truth circles. " Each person in the group had to go around and answer the question: " When did you first notice that race was the elephant in the room? " " From my discussions with groups the night before the race, I have gained more of an appreciation for racial issues, " Rent Ford, OMazing Race contes- tant, said. The day of the race saw a campus-wide scav- enger hunt. The 20 teams began at different spots all over campus and searched high-and-low to find 28 hidden flags. Each clue, which could have been anywhere from Manning Way, the Depot, Croft Institute or the Hon- ors College, led the teams to a box containing flags with their respective team name on it and a new clue lead- ing to the next flag. Some clues were harder than others, so if a team needed assistance, they had a lifeline. They were granted OPPOSITE Contestants were given sets of clues to help them navigate campus. three phone calls to ask for help. The clues given over the phone were coordinates found on the campus map provided for each team. There were several rules the players had to abide by: Teams could not split up into smaller groups of one or two, flags had to be collected in sequential order and teams could not take flags not designated for them. Whichever team returned with all 28 flags in the fastest time won the race. First place was awarded with $2000, second place was awarded an engraved b rick on the Walk of Champions, third place received two movie passes for each person and fourth place received a small prize. The race reached out not only to Ole Miss stu- dents but also to the greater Oxford community. The teams were named after sponsors who had donated at least $100. The teams included Martin, Oxford United Methodist Church and the Episcopal Church of Ole Miss. The winning team this year was 3 Guy ' s Pizza. Anyone on campus during the hunt could not help but become interested in the activity. " The day of the race several activities were going on, " Ford said. " There were alumni, visitors and prospective students up here watching us run around campus, and everyone seemed interested in what we were doing. It helped people realize we do have an appreciation for diversity. " The OMazing Race has already begun to have a positive impact on peop le at the university. Students and professors are really responding to the event by submitting new ideas and plans for next year. " The answer to this problem, like all the other troubles that hurt and plague humanity, are entirely wound from within the boundaries and limitations that each of us set for ourselves, " Mize said. " There is a problem in Mississippi, and this problem can- not be fixed by efforts of only a few, but it is entirely determined by the incalculable strength of all. It is time that we all learn to see the bright future that can be set before us, if we Mississippians, could only give ourselves the chance. Surely, this can be accom- plished.

" The Grove is probably the most amazing place on the planet, " Brock Herrington, junior South- ern studies major from Enterprise, claimed. " It is definitely the only place you ' ll find designer apparel and tailgating combined. It is a communal feast where good manners and good drinks are of the utmost im- portance. You don ' t meet a stranger in The Grove. " Ole Miss home football games give friends and family a chance to reunite in The Grove, a 10-acre stretch of land carpeted with green grass and canopied by tall oak trees, to socialize over drinks and above average tailgating cuisine. Sports Illustrated rated The Grove as the top tailgating spot in the country and referred to it as " the 52 • The Grove most magical place on all of God ' s green, football-play- ing Earth. " Sports News called it " the holy grail of tail- gating sites, " and the New York Times described it as " the mother and mistress of outdoor ritual mayhem. " This section of campus has evolved into a symbol of the university; however, this was not always the case. The land that now contains The Grove was not even part of Ole Miss before 1889. According to The University of Mississippi A Sesquicentennial History by David Sansing, a retired Ole Miss history professor, the area now called The Grove did not always look as it does now. It was once undeveloped land on the opposite side of a wooden fence, which acted as a barrier between the small uni- versity campus and wild animals. In 1889, Chancellor Robert Fulton, whose legacy at Ole Miss is improving the landscape, added a new library called Ventress Hall. He extended the existing fence to the railroad, effectively adding several acres to the campus. Fulton oversaw the development of the newly added land, planting trees and shrubbery. The green space, once a domain for wild animals, quickly grew to be a common meeting ground for Ole Miss students. School newspapers at the turn of the century docu- ment the land ' s popularity among students. The Grove was commonly used for student recreation and quickly began to symbolize students ' fondness for the university. A decade after the incorpo- ration of The Grove to campus, Dur- rell Miller, a graduating Ole Miss senior wrote in the school yearbook: " How strong so ' er I be I needs must weep at this; Thy hallowed groves I see No more, Ole Miss. " Just as Miller expressed in 1899, many Ole Miss students as- sociate feelings of warmth, tranquil- ity and home with The Grove. These fond thoughts among students and alumni create a strong, common bond. " The Grove is such a symbolic place, " Gloria Rel- lum, vice chancellor for university relations, said. " I think it is a symbol of love and respect. When you love and respect the land, you love and respect each other. " Rellum remembers walking on campus as a 5-year- old and seeing people gather to picnic before games. Unlike today, the university formerly allowed fans to park in The Grove. They drove into The Grove, parked their cars and created areas to eat and visit with each other. Though Ole Miss typically only played three games in Oxford each season due to the limited seating capacity of Vaught-Hemingway stadium, people always united in The Grove to support their Rebels. According to Sansing, the tailgating trend boomed in the 1970s while Archie Manning played for the Rebels and popularized the football program. " He [Archie] was a folk hero, not just a celebrity, " Sansing said. " He brought people together, and I really think one of his legacies was his contribution to making Ole Miss people want to come back and share memories. And where else could you do it better than in The Grove? " Though the crowd at The Grove continued to grow, most football players, like Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame inductee Warner Alford, never took part in the tradition. In 1985, however, head football coach Billy Brewer thought his players should be part of this tradition. That year, his football team paraded through The Grove and completed the first Walk of Champions. Manning ' s legacy and the excitement of the Walk of Champions both fueled the growing tailgating tradi- The Grove is such a symbolic place. I think it is a symbol of love and respect. {gloria kellum} Vice Chancellor for University Relations tion, and in the 1990s, the athletic- department, led by former Ole Miss football player Warner Alford, added to the seating capacity of the on-campus stadium. With this change, the university could host more games in Oxford. Fans supported the addition of home games and attendance increased. With a larger influx of fans to campus, The Grove alleviated prob- lems associated with limited parking. Fans enjoyed the convenience and the tailgating tradition, but the damage to The Grove then became apparent. " When people would bring and park their cars in The Grove, it would get really torn up by the end of the season, " Alford, who is now the executive direc- tor of alumni affairs for Ole Miss, said. Automobile access to The Grove came to a halt on a rainy Saturday when university officials decided cars would damage the land too much; thus, a new era of tailgating began. The positive re- sponse provoked a decision to officially ban cars from The Grove. At first, people just set up tables. Soon after, tents became popular among families who aimed to shield themselves from the exhausting Mississippi heat. Now, red, white and blue tents fill The Grove. " It ' s an alluring and captivating scene, " Sansing said. " It ' s the happiest environment. Big shade trees and green grass and the music of the band and the watching of the play- ers walk through The Grove... all of it is just a unique experi- ence. I ' ve been to colleges all over the country, an d none of them have a tradition quite as good as we have. " The uniqueness of The Grove continues to capture the attention of national media and football fans nationwide. " All the schools in the SEC have different personali- ties, " Alford said. " We can ' t be like Tennessee. We can ' t be like LSU. And they can ' t be like Ole Miss. We have something here that is ours. Nobody can duplicate it. " Each year, visitors travel to Oxford to experience the unmatched Ole Miss tailgating experience in The Grove. The well-dressed fans, elaborate displays of food and southern hospitality are some of its aspects that are most commonly remembered by visitors. Members of the Ole Miss family, however, associate The Grove with much more. The Grove is the setting of many memories. It is a park, a library, a chapel, a gathering place and a venue. It is place of orientation, graduation and reunion. It is a link between generations. " There ' s something deeply rooted in Southerners that we value land. Here is this little spot of land that we all share in common. We have common memories and common friends, and it is this little spot of land that calls us back year after year after year, " Sansing said. TheGrove- 53 m Holly Mayette and her roommate Faye Walters synced a mix of vibrant golds, creams, and greens to create an artsy oasis in their Crosby Hall dorm room. vmmm H£L ■ j W I HH 2— •■■i r l i SEra m Students share how they made their dorm rooms a home away from home. 9 BE W k Y he transfer from high school to college brings such changes as new friends, new activities and an overall new lifestyle. On their first move to the university, freshmen are full of expectations and excitement about whom they will meet and what they will become. With all their belongings packed tightly into their vehicles, these new students travel to a place, which they hope to make their home away from home. However, the excitement about finally leaving home to attend Ole Miss often clouds the student ' s heads, and they forget their new home will be within the tiny dimensions of a 12-by-16-foot room. A typical Ole Miss dorm room can seem rather frightening upon one ' s first entrance of it. Pushing open the heavy wooden door reveals two thin plastic-covered mattresses on creaky wooden frames, tightly enclosed by four square walls. The linoleum floors are of same bland white as the concrete walls, which are offset by two plain sets of wooden dressers and desks. The task of making this shoebox into a home is daunting but has definitely been accomplished year after year. Freshman Ali Phares, who was prepared for living in the dorms by her older sister, said that although it is not exactly comparable to her home in Pass Christian, living in such a small space is not as bad as she thought it would be. " I brought comfortable bedding and things from my room like pictures and photo albums to make me feel at home, and I ' ve benefited by making a lot of new friends, " Phares said. Maggie Coakely, a freshman from Nashville, also has older sisters who have lived in the dorms and said that she has enjoyed the experience more than she thought she would. " I wouldn ' t consider it a home away from home, but bringing pictures and decorating my room has made it more comfortable to live in, " Coakely claimed. " Also, it is sometimes too loud to study or sleep but is still fun because you ' re with so many girls. " While pictures and personal items are certainly necessary to make one feel more at home, some freshman girls need a little bit more to transform their rooms. " Every dorm room has a color scheme and a perfect setup. Almost everyone ' s is over-the-top with headboards, big flat screen TVs and so on, " Coakley said. Holly Mayatte, a sophomore who is required to live in the dorm another year by her sorority, agreed that more decoration and accessories are necessary to make her dorm room feel more homey. She said that by looking at everyone else ' s rooms last year, she was better prepared to make her room more comfortable and cute this year. " Most dorm rooms that I have seen are covered in tons of pictures and also things to warm up the room like bed skirts, head boards and anything to make the dorm room look not like a dorm room, " Mayatte said. Mayatte and her roommate added headboards to their beds, covered in toile fabric and monogrammed with their initials. They also have matching chair covers, gold bed skirts and curtains. Mayatte added a white carpet to relieve the cold feeling of the dorm room tile and a lamp from home as a substitute for the fluorescent lighting. Mayatte ' s roommate. Faye Walter, points out that it is helpful to plan decorating schemes with your roommate. A, ' - I ■ H VIBRANT The Catholic Campus Ministry grows in numbers, grounds and faith. photograph by JOSEPH WARNER story by ALEX MCADAMS he Catholic Campus Ministry, a student re- ligious organization on campus, is without an official place of worship in Oxford but still manages to draw in crowds. While only ,;ii mi 10 percent of the Ole Miss student population is Catholic, the campus ministry is not without its fair share of members, Brad Noel, the organization ' s adviser, said. With anywhere from 1,500 to 1,600 people attending mass at the Paris Yates Chapel on campus, the membership is not going anywhere but up, he claimed. " We have a vibrant faith, " Noel said. " Not only are there students [in the South] who partici- pate, but there are also students from Africa, China and Latin America who are also Catholic. The parish size is about 500 families. The CCM is an outgrowth of St. John ' s Parish, the official parish of Oxford. " The parish and the CCM work closely to- gether since students are such a large majority of the Catholic denomination in Oxford. " The only reason we have a parish in Ox- ford is because of the students at Ole Miss, " Rev. Joe Tonos of St. John ' s Parish said. Noel echoed the same sentiments. )xford is a cosmopolitan town and very progres- sive. It ' s because of the university, " he said. The new church is currently in the construction process, and the Catholic community is waiting with bated breath, both Noel and Tonos said. " We broke ground in July, but since Hurricane Ra- trina. construction costs have skyrocketed. " Noel said. " We estimate the church to be completed by September 2008. " Sarah Mokry, senior biology major from Olive Branch, hopes to use the church in October 2008 for her marriage emony. y] may very well have the first official wed- sw church, " Tonos said. y, who was born and raised a Southern Baptist, olic when she and her fiance became en- ecided that each week we would alternate e said.

" churches, have foun M a progra the past few years, Noel said. Mokry described the RCIA as a " formal entrj pro- cess, " which trains converts from the month of September to the Easter holiday. " It ' s such an honor, " she said. " Being Catholic is so much apart of who I am now. It was everything 1 didn ' t expect it to be. I had a lot of reservations at first, though. " Jennifer Rose Adams, another involved member of the CCM, is what the church calls " a cradle Catholic. " Adams, sophomore insurance and risk management ma- jor from Columbus, was born and raised in the Catholic Church, and although she made no major denominational conversions, she believes that the CCM has helped her faith grow personally. " It ' s about fellowship and coming together for the faith. " she said. " Some of m best friends were made through the CCM. It ' s a wa to be with people who have the same beliefs " However, Noel stresses that the CCM is not as much a social organization as it is a religious one. " The goal is to make it feel less like a club. " he said. " We do not have officers this year, and we hope that it makes the organization more accessible to others PL?

The football game and the presentation of the court were the main events, but the week leading up to it were full of activities that the Student Programming Board, the Department of Campus Programming and the Alumni Association sponsored. The Student Union was the central hub of activity during the week. Students could get free slushees all week as well as have their picture taken for the yearbook. The week was riddled with free caricatures, free massages, mechanical bulls and rock walls, giving students plenty to do during their free time in between classes. Each night, different events were held in the Southern Breeze: Trivia Night was on Tuesday, Ole Miss Idol auditions were on Wednesday and a Texas hold ' em poker tournament was on Thursday. Students were also treated to music in the Union plaza all week. Rebel Radio 92.1 hosted a live remote on Monday, and Union Unplugged had special performances by DJ Mont, Tommy Sikes and Erick Evans. On Friday the annual homecoming parade was conducted along University Avenue to the Courthouse Square; many Greek and campus organization floats lined the street while Rebel Radio 92.1 hosted another live remote. On Saturday the Ole Miss Rebels suited up to battle it out against the Louisiana Tech University Bulldogs. Coach O led the team in a sweeping victory of 24-0 over the Bulldogs, only adding to the high spirits of everyone at the game. During halftime, the homecoming court was formally presented. Sally White served as the freshman maid, while Anna Taylor was elected the sophomore maid. Molly Aiken was the junior maid, followed by Claire Morris as the senior maid. This year ' s Homecoming Queen was Amanda Jones, a senior from Meridian. She is president of Kappa Delta and is a marketing major.

However, the T-shirts claiming, " We ' re not snobs ... we ' re just better than you, " and the tailgating deca- dence in The Grove probably do not help our case. Also, the perceived image outsiders have of the Mercedes- driving, credit card-wielding, financially apathetic Ole Miss student is probably the most condemning piece of evidence against those who claim we are not snobs. We cannot totally claim this image is untrue. Of course, we all have one friend-or at least know of someone-who drives a brand-new Range Rover, wears only high-end designer clothing and lives in a condo right off the Square, courtesy of his or her father ' s (or mother ' s, for all the feminists out there) limitless corpo- rate credit card. While the super-rich student does exist at Ole Miss, most of us come from a much more modest background. The image of the " rich kid " from Ole Miss will soon become obsolete. In fact, a new breed of Ole Miss student is emerging: the fiscally responsible student. This new model comes with all the latest amenities, including checkbook balancing, consistent employment, budget- ing skills and leftover scholarship money. " I cover all of my expenses through scholar- ships, loans and money from working, " Anna Sanford, junior hospitality management major from Columbia, said. " I baby-sit five days week. I know, I know: a lot of people may say that baby-sitting isn ' t a ' real job, ' but trust me it is. " These students pay for bills, tuition and books on their own because they want to. They enjoy the financial freedom and welcome the extra responsibility this will entail. But this freedom does not come without story by BROCK HERRINGTON its costs. " I am always missing fun things in order to baby- sit and make extra cash because I have so many bills, " Sanford claimed. " I want to pay for as much as I can without asking my parents, so I use that to justify miss- ing fun events. " These students are not left solely responsible for their finances. Their parents may not own an American Express Centurion Card (which is rumored to have a minimum annual spending requirement of $250,000 a year); however, they are more than willing to help their children out when they need assistance. " My parents do help me out if I ever fall short on bills, " Sanford insisted. " They have never hesitated to belp me in the past. " Some students have more unique jobs to pay for expenses. Crystal Watson, senior social work major from Sardis, works at her apartment complex for free rent. " I work at Campus Creek Apartment Homes, " Watson said. " I don ' t pay for my rent because I get free rent for working 16 hours each week. I also get commis- sion from new residents that I recruit. " Watson also added that while her parents do not currently pay for her living expenses, they would gladly pay for anything she needed them to. Financially stable students know that they can rely on their parents, but they usually try to pay for things on their own. " I hate to ask them for money, " Sanford said. " I do not want them to pay for all my bills and expenses because they already have enough to pay for-our family is pretty big. " Hopefully, these new students will become the standard by which outsiders set their stereotypes. That way, future students will sport T-shirts saying, " We ' re not snobs ... we ' re just like you.

StudcM 61 State or LSU: who holds the title as the biggest and most hated rival in Rebel country? photographs by DREW TAGGART rhe universities in the Southeastern Con- ference have a tendency to be highly competitive with one another. The Uni- versity of Mississippi is no exception. While Ole Miss ' competition levels rise with every SEC school, two schools stand out above the rest. One of the schools is an in-state rival whose cowbell-clanging, maroon-sporting habits drive Ole Miss fans insane. The other lies just beyond the state border and has some really rowdy fans who bleed purple and gold. For those a little slow on the uptake, the two schools I am talking about are Mississippi State University and Louisiana State University. The two rivalries are the most pronounced ones for the university. However, it seems unclear as to which rivalry is the biggest. Many Ole Miss students stand on both sides of the issue, clearly hating one more than the other. The most easily spotted rivalry is between Ole Miss and MSU. Every November right around Thanksgiving, the two schools face off in the Egg Bowl. The teams play their hardest to claim rights to the Golden Egg, the trophy given to the winner. This rivalry seems the most heated for those students from Mississippi. " The sound of the cowbells make me cringe, " story by BROCK HERRINGTON Jamie Arrexi, senior journalism major from Amory, claimed. " Those fans are so redneck. The only rea- son they hate us so much is because they want to be us. Everyone knows Ole Miss is better than State, whether we win or lose the Egg Bowl, even though that ' s the only game that I care about winning. " The rivalry with LSU has less emphasis placed on it (the game does not have a name), but the rivalry itself is not any less intense. The Grove is always its rowdiest during that game as crazed LSU fans come to Oxford. The fans themselves are why many students dislike the schools. " LSU fans are the worst fans to put up with, " Anna Sanford, junior hospitality manage- ment major from Columbia, said. " I mean, we have crazy fans too. But LSU fans always take things to the extreme and not in a good way. I have seen LSU students expose themselves in The Grove. That is just disrespectful and classless. " The two rivalries definitely overshadow the rest, but determining which school is a bigger rival for the university itself seems to be left up to students and fans themselves. Only one thing is for sure: these rivalries will remain as heated as they are now for years to come. 62 ' SEC Rivals ABOVE Ole Miss fans pass on their game da man- tras down to a younger generation.

The University of Mississippi is no exception to this trend. During the year, various events have caused the university administration and city officials to take action against the prevalence of alcohol. The event that acted as the catalyst for the proactive stance by the university and city occurred Oct. 6, 2006 when former Ole Miss student Daniel Cummings killed University Police Department officer Robert Langley. Langley and fellow UPD officer Michelle Thompson had stopped Cummings during a routine traffic stop at the intersection of Fraternity Row and Jackson Ave. West. Thompson smelled alcohol on Cummings and asked him to step out of the vehicle. When reaching inside the vehicle to stop Cummings from driving away, the former student pressed the gas, dragging Langley to his death. Only 10 days later, the university ' s newly formed Alcohol Task Force met for the first time to discuss the alcohol problem on campus. The next day, the Alcohol Task Force officially began enforcing the " two-strike " suspension plan for students. Under this policy, any student found guilty of two alcohol or drug rule violations will be suspended from school for one semester. On April 1 7, the City of Oxford Board of Aldermen approved a keg ordinance that requires all keg-buyers to obtain a possessor ' s permit and registration seal before purchasing the alcohol. The ordinance requires all people planning to buy a keg to register with the city clerk. When doing so, he or she must provide the clerk with locations and dates on which the keg will be consumed, and no more than one keg can be located in an area that is not licensed to sell beer or light wine, according to the ordinance. Once receiving the possessor ' s permit and registration seal, the purchaser is required to keep the seal affixed to the keg, so that the owner of an individual keg can be easily identified. Establishments that sell kegs must designed to help curb illegal and abusive use of alcohol on campus, " Douglass Sullivan-Gonzalez, dean of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College and co-chair of the university ' s former Alcohol Task Force, said. Despite the efforts of the Alcohol Task Force, the alcohol policy still had obstacles to overcome. On Aug. 25, university police officers confiscated alcohol at the annual Rumble in the Grove concert, including the alcohol of students of the legal drinking age. Police Chief Jeffrey Van Slyke later issued a letter of apology for the officers ' miscommunication of the university ' s official interpretation of the alcohol policy at the event. Months later, the Cummings saga was coming to a close after almost a year. On the morning of Oct. 1 5, former Ole Miss student Daniel Cummings unexpectedly pled guilty to culpable negligent manslaughter for the 2006 death of university police officer Robert Langley during his capital murder trail. Cummings was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Only days later, Ole Miss students banded together to show they could make a positive contribution to fight against alcohol as well with the kick-off of the Ole Miss CHEERS program, which offers free non-alcoholic drinks in red CHEERS cups to designated drivers. Sponsored by various fraternities, sororities, the City of Oxford and the state of Mississippi, the program was started in 1 986 by a group of University of Missouri alumni who were tired of the problem of drinking and driving. On Nov. 5, Memphis ' WMC-TV released its undercover investigation into the alcohol culture on the Ole Miss campus. The news station spent a semester looking into The Princeton Review ' s statement that Ole Miss is one of the top party schools in the nation, a claim that has been made about the university many times before.

A month later, the keg ordinance went into effect.

Ole Miss required the course as part of " a comprehensive education and awareness program and what is being done to control it. The news station received a mix of reactions from the Oxford and university community after airing the piece with many controversial claims of newsgathering techniques, including the news station taking videos from YouTube as sources. The university and the city have worked hard to curb the " culture of alcohol " the students lived in.

Although tattoos and piercings remain a controversial expression of individuality, some students at the university dare to defy the norm. Danice Gentle is one of those students. As a 44-year-old senior from Pontotoc, Gentle is anything but conventional. With sleeves donning her arms and 26 tattoos gracing her body, she is more than a body art veteran. " It ' s a form of art to me, " she said, " But it ' s not a form of art that everyone likes. If you go back in history, in some cultures it ' s an honor [tobe tattooed]: ' It ' s a fONTH Whne it may be an honor to some, Gentle simply likes get- t)Ut it ' s PlOt ting inked.

" I can see how some people are afraid of the people who have tattoos. They think we ' re weird, we ' re crazy or we ' re all convicts. I never get in trouble, but people as- sociate tattoos with felons, " she said. " A lot of students on campus are both tattooed and pierced. " Another more traditional-in the broadest sense of the word-student, Brett Fowler, has eight tattoos and 10 piercings. " The first tattoo I got is the only one that means anything, " the senior philosophy major from Oxford said. " I drew it for a friend of mine, and he passed away.

I ' m perfectly fine with that, " he said. Gentle, who is majoring in theatre arts with a concentra- tion in costume design, also has had other body modifications: a labret piercing and stretched ear- lobes.

Over 200 people fdl Off Square Books every Thursday at 5:30 p.m. to hear some old-fashioned Mississippi music played. Thacker Mountain celebrated its 10th anni- versary last October when they held their live perfor- mance at Nutt Auditorium on campus. The special guests at the event Included Barry Hannah, Jack Perdarvis, Julia Reed and the Sincere Ramblers. The 10th anniversary marked the first live performance by two Southern Studies graduate students that has now turned into an award-winning weekly broadcast. Thacker Mountain Radio has won numerous awards, including the Mississippi Governor ' s Award for Excel- Thaeker Mountain Radio numerous times. Every week, the audience liles into owner and mayor Richard Howorth ' s Off Square Books and takes their seats in the old fashion wooden chairs to hear the music and readings. Thacker Mountain Radio also has a house band and host each week. In part named alter the Mississippi county, the home hand, The Valobushwackers, play a variety of country, bluegrass and folk music the crowd always enjoys. Pianist Jim Dic kinson is the leader for the house band and has worked with many rock-and-roll legends, from Bob Dylan to the Rolling Stones. He has recently become famous for his work with his sons, who make up the rock group The North Mississippi All-stars. The show has been described as a struggle to lence in the Arts. However, the weekly event has more than just live music to entertain the audience. Each week, one or two guest speakers recount captivating stories from their past. People ranging from middle school teachers retelling experiences to Hurricane Katrina evacuees discussing life in New Orleans before, during and after the storm read at the weekly radio broadcast. Oxford has always been known for its artistic expression, especially for its literary past. Before the Civil War, the city had a strong impact on Southern writing, but once William Faulkner built his home at Rowan Oak, Oxford began to dominate the literary scene. Faulkner established the strong literary tradi- tion present here today. Long alter he had left his mark, John Grisham established himself as one of Oxford ' s famous authors. These two and others have helped influence thousands of students over the years, which in turn helped create Thacker Mountain Radio. In recent years Oxford has made a name for itself in a music community as well. Elvis Costello and Modest Mouse used Oxford as their home base for produc- ing their last albums. Costello has also preformed at produce every week because it operates on grants and donations from Thacker Mountain enthusiasts, differ- ent reports said. However, the show does have main supportive contributors, including City Grocery, Ajax Diner, Rebel Radio, Boure ' and the Yoknapatawapha Arts Council. Howorth said he liked the idea when it started because it gave musicians a venue to play acoustic sets outside of the high energy Oxford bar scene. He also said he already wanted a broadcast for authors to read their works out loud. The idea to combine the two was born, Howorth told the Clarion Ledger. " With any luck Oxford and Ole Miss will always have Thacker Mountain Radio. " Harrison Gould, senior political science major, said. " It brings a uniqueness to Oxford other towns an Mississippi could only dream of ha big. " During the 2008 spring semester. Off Square Books w ill host a show until at least Ma 1.

Through the years, Ole Miss has developed a personality that is uncommon among large organizations, and at the foundation of this distinct character are the relationships that involve students, faculty, staff and alumni- relationships that transcend generations, blurring differences in age, culture, politics and religion s we look back at 2007 through the pages of The Ole Miss, we notice that while the visible, quantifiable measures are different from those of previous years, our hearts and souls are the same. We embrace the values of respect, honesty, truth, freedom, loyalty and service. We hold our unfailing commitment to the free exchange of ideas and beliefs close to our hearts. And, above all, Ole Miss and its people are one. I Photoguph by RYAN MOORE Warmest Regards, Robert C. Khayat It takes more than great acting skills to be a theatre major. Sometimes you have to pull out some makeup. photographs by JOSEPH WARNER story by AMANDA TISDALE 76 • Stage Makeup ' o, it is not a sweat shop, and it is not the laboratory where Dr. Frankenstein creates his monster. This is the place where Ole Miss students dabble in the whimsical art of perfecting a character ' s look for the main theatrical productions the university puts on each year. Carey Hanson, instructor of the university ' s advanced makeup class, supervises her theatrically enthused and career- oriented students as they create great works in prosthetics and hairpieces. In the world of theatre and film, this specialized field of creating 3-D facial effects made of latex and hand-sewn locks is a skill of know-how that can launch a career. For career starters, students embark on their journey of experience in the back of Fulton Chapel and in the basement of Barnard Hall. One project on the creative table this year is constructing a modernized look for the Greek play, " Lysistrata. " Theproduction will featureprominentand recognizable figures in society. The warring men of " Lysistrata " will take on similar characteristics of United States political figures, such as President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. The women of the play take action by boycotting their love lives with their husbands in order to end a war. The chorus of familiar faces includes Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O ' Donnell and Cher. Other well-known female faces will include Daisy Duke, Britney Spears in her school girl days, Barbarella and Paris Hilton. Aside from creating latex pieces to make the characteristics of pop stars and political deities, students are also sewing wigs by hand. This skill takes talent and is more difficult than it sounds. Students have to piece strands of hair through individual holes in a special lace that will match the actors ' hairline giving it a more natural feel. The process is known as " ventilating. " A beginners ' makeup class taught by Andi Bedsworth provides the basic knowledge of theatre makeup applications. This basic knowledge is a commodity in the hands of an inspiring actor since the fledgling stages of an actor ' s career may require doing one ' s own hair and makeup. Beginner makeup artists learn to perfect techniques in creating old age effects, scars, welts, wounds, period makeup, fantasy makeup, crepe hair beards and mustaches as well as reshaping the nose with putty. A feat for students to conquer in the class is designing and sketching four characters ' makeup from a favorite show. For the final in the class, the enthused theatricals earn their wings by actually applying the finished designs on themselves. As magical and illusive as some of the university productions seem, all the elaborate costumes and makeup effects were not created five minutes before the show. These masterp ieces take months of preparation and two theatre arts classes. OPPOSITE LEFT Heather McMahan taps into her wild side with an intricate display of feline makeup.

The hu- man race is in the midst of a technolog) revolution. We have grown up in a world where we can read about and watch an event only moments after it happens, where we can access information in libraries continents away while sit- ting in our homes and where we can instantly communicate with anyone in the world. Naturally-or as natural as a world built on micro- chips, fiber optics and Wi-Fi can be-this cutting-edge tech- nology has spread into the realm of academia and thus affects us as students. It has changed how we do everything, from how we study to how we communicate with teachers to how we coordinate group projects with classmates. Even the way we distract ourselves from school has changed as we receive instant gratification on our study breaks from funny YouTube videos or from our favorite songs on iTunes and as we constantly socialize with each other by way of Facebook or AOL Instant Messenger. While this revolution has been a worldwide effort, the company that has pioneered the way through this period of immense innovation is Apple. The company ' s seemingly in- destructible and user friendly Macs have drastically altered everyone ' s perception of how a personal computer should run. " My MacBook goes with me everywhere. The battery lasts a long time.... I love it so much that I even get really hesitant about letting other people use it, " Michael Coleman, senior liberal arts major from Olive Branch, said. However, Apple deserves credit for so much more than making an efficient computer. In 2001 the computer company changed the way the world listened to music with the launch of its digital music player, the iPod, and its digital media player application, iTunes. Over the next few years, the iPod evolved into more than just a music player; it was given the capability to store photos and play videos. iTunes no lon- ger just sold music but music videos, movies and television shows as well. After cornering the market in portable media players, the geniuses at Apple began developing a mobile phone, and amidst mass euphoria from the public, the iPhone was born in the summer of 2007. The iPhone can do everything: it has all the music and video capabilities of the iPod; a plethora of Internet abilities, including e-mail, web browsing and Wi-Fi connectivity; and all the luxuries of a modern-day cell phone, such as a camera, text messaging, a touch screen and visual voicemail. " I use it for everything. I use it as an iPod when I work out and check my e-mail on it all the time. The best feature is probably the maps icon because if I need to find a number or location for somewhere, it only takes seconds. If I lost it, I don ' t know what I ' d do, " Morgan Drawe, junior art major from Ellisville, Mo., said when describing how useful her iP- hone is. Although Apple may have the competition beat when it comes to portable media players, the winner is not as clear in the mobile phone market (even though the iPhone can do everything). Years before the birth of the almighty iPhone. a w ireless handheld device was bringing e-mail, Internet faxing and web browsing to workaholic businessmen everywhere. This trusty device is the BlackBerry and is still popular today among busy working adults and college students alike. Also before the iPhone ' s reign, the folks at Palm released the Tree, a personal digital assistant that eventually became a phone in a similar fashion to the BlackBerry. " 1 BlackBerrj is this little piece of technologj that runs m life, " Rebecca Lee, junior hospitality management major from Madison, stated. " M entire schedule is organized on the calendar. It reminds me when 1 have to be somcw here because ' w hen I open the planner, e crything is right there. " Since it seems everyone can conned to the Internet through their cell phone, one ma wonder which Web sites students are accessing. The overwhelming answer is Face- book, the social networking site that has taken college cam- puses by storm over the last two years. The Web page allows people to post pictures and interesting facts about themselves and to " friend " other people who are on the site. Those on Facebook can send messages to others, look at their friends ' profiles or even write messages on their walls, which is the cyber equivalent of signing someone ' s yearbook in high school. MySpace is another popular networking site that al- lows users to personalize their pages more by changing font sizes and colors and adding background pictures and m riad other personality quiz results, photo slideshows and gargan- tuan pictures of their favorite celebrities. Students are also visiting YouTube, a video-sharing Web site created in 2005. One can find anything on YouTube, from news segments to video blogs to snippets of television shows. The most attrac- tive quality of the site is the infinite number of hilarious vid- eos posted by its subscribers. YouTube could be likened to a quagmire that sucks students in when they should be study- ing or finishing homework assignments. Speaking of Internet distractions, nothing is more guaranteed to shatter a student ' s concentration than when an instant message window pops up with the latest gossip from a friend. AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) is easily the most popular instant messaging service. While late-night conversations on AIM can be a studious student ' s downfall, the service can be useful in asking a friend for quick help on an assignment or in planning a last-minute group proj- ect with classmates. However, those using AIM for academic purposes should beware as conversations can quickly turn social, which consumes those precious study hours. The Internet is not only a distraction for students. It is also a tool that has greatly improved how we study and do homework. Anyone who has taken a foreign language class at the university will be familiar with Course Compass or Quia, two Web sites where students must complete assign- ments for their classes. Rachael Howard, senior psychology major from Columbus, said doing online homework for her Italian class helps her learn better. " Absorbing a foreign language has become much more efficient since homework has transcended books and paper. Doing Italian homework online provides me the op- portunity to receive immediate feedback on my performance and lets me know what I did wrong, " Howard explained. Of course, not every technological advance can be listed here. The list of innovations is infinite, and the com- panies producing them do not seem to be slowing dow n an) time soon. In fact, b the time this article is published, most of these products. Web sites or services will be obsolete: newer. sleeker, faster miracles of technology will have long since re- placed them. The only thing that will remain constant is the technology revolution itself, which will be making our li es easier for years to come. Technologj Changes ' 79 the stei« sWPes With the presidental debate hosted by the university growing closer with each day, Ole Miss prepares its students with classes focusing on policy analysis and the presidential race. photograph fcjMI ' CHEL JARJOURA VJH • •.. a T Iff I story by HALEY CRUM H? 80 • Presidential Debate he University of Mississippi will be the site of the first of four presidential debates to take place before the presidential election in November. The debate, the first to ever take place on the Ole Miss campus, will be on Septem- ber 26 in the Gertrude C. Ford Center and will focus mainly on domestic policy. The other three debates will also take place on college campuses: Washington University in St. Louis, Belmont University in Nashville and Hofstra Univer- sity in Hempstead, N.Y. Only one word can describe the student reaction after hearing about the debate coming to campus - excited. Students, even those who never paid attention to politics before, were dying to know how they could get a ticket. Unfortunately, they soon found out they might just be sitting at home watching the debate on their television screens like the rest of the nation. Although the Ford Center can hold about 1,250 peo- ple, only about 50 of those seats will go to students. The rest of the seats will be mostly dedicated to the media and their equipment. There has been a little speculation among the student body on what students will get to attend, but nothing official has been announced. When the students figured out the chances on them getting a ticket to this historic event were slim to none, the excitement died down quickly. After all, besides school being let out for a couple of days because of a dramatic increase of traffic on campus, what else is there to look forward to besides watching another debate on television? The " I ' m-ac- tually-going-to-get-to-be-there " appeal most of the students had was lost. Well, it seems the university caught on to the stu- dents ' attitude. The Ole Miss political science department, in conjunction with the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, is offering two new classes centered on the presi- dential debate. The goal is to get students interested in the debate, whether they can actually be there or not. The first of the two classes is limited to a small group of students in the Honors College, but the second class will be open to all students on campus. Students will learn about policy analysis and get a better understanding of the issues being debated, SMBHC Associate Dean John Samonds said. The fourteen honors students participating in the first class right now are in the beginning stages of preparing a detailed analysis, which they may actually get to present to the presi- dential candidates before the event takes place. By doing this, they hope the candidates will take into consideration the students ' opinions and address them during the debate. " The idea of presenting [a policy analysis] to the candidates was suggested by Dr. Andy Mullins, the execu- tive assistant to the chancellor, " Samonds said. " [The Honors College] decided that the students would need to work on them this semester in order to have them developed by Sep- tember. " Teaching the course is political science department chair Richard Forgette. The students ' take on this analysis is a unique one, he said. " The group of students is writing a policj analysis identifying the greatest policy challenges facing the South in the next generation, " he said. " We hope the world will see that the University of Mississippi truly is a great American public university. " Ole Miss sophomore Tyler Craft is one of the stu- dents taking part in this class. Craft routinely keeps up w ith the political world and said this class fits well with what ' s going on in our nation right now. " I ' ve been following the presidential race for some time, and immediately, the class was appealing to me, " he said. " The class is very intriguing. I think the most educa- tional part is that Dr. Forgette teaches us through hands-on learning, and from past experiences I know that working on policy development can give someone the most insight into everything surrounding the issue. " Throughout the semester the students will be get- ting input from leaders across the South about issues the think are important. They will then use this research to write a policy that will include background information of certain issues and the students ' recommendations for change. " I think this class is one of the greatest opportuni- ties I ' ve ever had, " Craft said. " How often do students write policy suggestions to the president? I can ' t imagine a better way to take part in something this important. " The other class centered on the debate w ill be of- fered in the Fall 2008 semester. Titled " POL 100 - The 2008 Election, " the course will meet once a week and feature a new speaker each class period. The speakers will relate the election to their research, teaching or professional perspec- tive. The second class is especially good for students w ho are not able to take other political science classes, Forgette said. This course can give them the tools they need to be up-to-date politically in time for the debate. After all, the more the students know about politics by the time the de- bate on campus takes place, the more likely they will be to watch it. Even though a vast majority of the Ole Miss stu- dents will not be able to attend the debate, the university still hopes students will stay on campus during the event The administrators have decided to set up satellite sites all across campus for students to watch the debate from since the number of student tickets is so limited. " Having the first presidential debate here is hugel beneficial. " Samonds said. " Every presidential election is important, but main people see this one as highly critical. For a state that is usually ignored during presidential cam- paigns, to have the focus of the nation on the university and on Mississippi is invaluable.

With years of training under their belts, Ole Miss theatre students strike out on their own to make thfeir mark on stages other than those in Oxford via connections made in the theater department. 82 • Theatre Connections it to make a ig what I love to do because not that {sarah chaney} UM Theatre Graduate hile the bright lights of Broadway have drawn budding actors from all over the world to New York City, the University of Mississippi Depart- ment of Theatre Arts has found a way to give its rural stu- dents the ultimate urban experience. With its balaneed mix of dedieated faculty and inten- sive professional guidance in a number of fields, the Ole Miss Theater Department attracts students from all over the nation. Mary Virginia Bartlett, a junior from Paseagoula, came to Ole Miss three years ago looking for a way to get the serious training she desired. Like many students before her, Bartlett found exactly what she was looking for in the Ole Miss Theatre Depart- ment. From the close camaraderie to the individual training, Bartlett knew she was exactly where she needed to be. " Although we have a small department, the faculty and statf have found a way to give it a big-depart- ment feel, " Bartlett says. " We also have an excess of talent from both the professors and students, so we are always getting the best of both worlds; I couldn ' t imagine myself being any- where else. " This past spring, Bartlett was one of nine students invited to par- ticipate in the bachelor of fine arts program offered by the theatre arts department. The B.F.A. is an acting- intensive degree that gives students a chance to experience a higher level of training not offered through the Bach- elor of Arts degree. " The B.F.A. allows for more intensive participation in an acting area of your choice, whereas the B.A. gives a student a more well-rounded but less intense study of act- ing, " said Dr. Bhona Justice-Malloy, chair of the theatre arts department. " The sacrifice that comes with getting into the B.F.A program is the student does not get the chance to take courses like languages and sciences that could help them later in life. " Students admitted into the program are able to choose a field of their choice, which include design technology, mu- sical theatre emphasis and acting. Each B.F.A. program also offers subcategories. For instance, in design technology stu- dents can choose from costume, lighting and scenic design. This allows the students a chance to gain a more intensive training in one specific area. " Stated simply, the B.F.A. implies intense and individ- ualized professional training, " explained Joe Cantu, associ- ate professor of theater and head of acting. " This is a rarity because most universities do not want to expend that kind of time, money and effort. We are bringing Ole Miss to the forefront by being able to devote more of these things to our students. " Cantu said most actors could not simply enter an audition without any form of training and land the roles they desire. He claimed training is of utmost importance to stu- dents wanting to pursue a serious career in theater. " Training is always going to help the student excel as a serious actor, " Cantu says. " Baw talent can only take you so far, but if raw talent is trained properly, it can take you beyond your expectations. " The theatre arts program is attempting to cultivate the raw talent each of its students possesses and take that talent to the highest level. Cantu says that in the business of acting, it is most important to know what you waul and to know how to reach those goals. Sarah Chaney, a recent graduate from Vicksburji, said her training al the university has proven extremel) valuable because it equipped her with an extremelx versa- tile skill set. " If my boss asks me to do anything at all, I alreadj know how or can at least ask intelligent enough questions to get the job done quickly and efficiently, " Chaney said. " This is because at Ole Miss they worked really hard at making me a well rounded individual, which is something that is attractive to the theatre world because in the theatre world, seriously, anything can happen. " Chaney, who is currently residing in Gainesville, Fla., and working as an assistant stage manager at the Hippo- drome Stage Theater, added that w ith such balanced training she had no trouble finding the work she loves. " I just want to make a living do- ing what I love to do because not many people get to do that, " she said. " While Broadway would be nice, there is so much other great work out there, too. " While some actors dream of life in the Big Apple or Hollywood, man students, like Chaney, involved in the B.F.A. program see potential careers in alternative theater cities like Chi- cago, Atlanta and Seattle. " I ' d really love to work in Seattle because the market is not as competitive as the markets you would find in New York or Los Angeles, " Bartlett said. " 1 can focus on honing my talent while holding down a steady act- ing career instead of fist-fighting for roles in New York for the rest of my life. " Although the classes and instruction are designed to be an integral part of the B.F.A. core, they cannot stand alone. Summer programs, like the Oxford Shakespeare Fes- tival or national theater internships, aid students in giving them real-world settings to put their skills into practice. Bartlett said participating in a summer-long pro- gram with an actual production company not only prepares students for real show business logistics but gives them valuable techniques to bring back and share with their peers. By combining techniques learned in intensive studio work, school productions and summer internships, the stu- dents of this program are gaining knowledge that w ill help set them apart. Whether it ' s the chaos of balancing long hours of rehearsal, a weekend job. and a sea of homework or just reworking a character until it ' s absolutely perfect, these stu- dents find some solace in knowing where they are headed. Bartlett, who plans to work in classical or repertorj theater, gives a simple explanation for her love affair w ith the theater department: " We may love acting, " she sa s. " but it ' s the madness that keeps us coming back. " Theatre ( lonnections • 8o the perfect student Tiair Something interesting. Ask for the ' coup de surprise ' at Don and Dale ' s barbershop.

Some say it is the sense of southern history and hospitality. Some say it is the undeniable love of tradition. Regardless of the reason, Ole Miss has consistently produced highly educated, well-rounded, intelligent individuals who have made their strides to success beyond the Walk of Champions. Many notable alumni have left Oxford to not only break records but to make their place in history. These " good ol ' boys " have made a name for themselves since leaving Ole Miss. Archie Manning, graduate from the class of 1971, is a member of the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame, College Football Hall of Fame and Ole Team of the Century, not to mention his 14-year career playing in the NFL with the New Orleans Saints. Eli Manning, followed in his father ' s footsteps and earned first team All-American honors, finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting and cur- rently plays for the New York Giants after being the No. 1 pick in the 2004 NFL draft. The Mannings have contributed greatly to Ole Miss since their departure, making donations to improve the uni- versity and its programs. One can find " Manning Way " right beside the stadium where the two set many records during their collegiate careers. While our athletes are making and breaking records left and right, Ole Miss law alumnus John Grisham is now a best-selling author after publish- 86 Famous Alumni ing many popular books. Though he did not earn his undergraduate degree at Ole Miss, he did graduate from Ole Miss School of Law in 1981 and began his career as a lawyer in Southaven before writing " A Time to Rill, " which became his first best-seller. Grisham has gone to great lengths in giving back to his roots. As a part of the university ' s Alumni Association, Grisham sponsored the " Celebration of Mississippians in Nashville " event that gives scholarships to an underprivileged middle Tennessee student wishing to attend Ole Miss. Dur- ing the event in April, Grisham shared, " I still have a strong emotional attach- ment to Oxford " . These alumni may have gone far, but they still have remained close to Ole Miss and the community of Oxford. Matthew Willis, a graduate of the class of 2004 with a B.A. in History, shares his experiences: " One of the reasons that I attended Ole Miss was because of the plethora of great writers the univer- sity and the town of Oxford produces, harbors and promotes. The University of Mississippi and Oxford are cradles of great American literature, and that is what I wanted to be associated with.... The town of Oxford and the univer- sity are two things that, in my opinion, should be experienced by everyone. " Every student who walks the Ole Miss campus is a part of history. Though not all students who leave the university have the speed limit on campus changed to their jersey number, nor do they become a top pick in the NFL draft or write best-selling books. However, they are students who spent years of their lives at a great American public univer- sity where the students make its tradi- tions and shape its history. ■ Svi ■ t ,■» ■ Famous Alumni • 87 CAREER Tyler Little works at the Turner Center as a tr ainer to gain work experience for when he graduates. A t Ole Miss, classrooms are not the only places students prepare for their future careers. On- and off-campus facilities allow students to practice firsthand the skills they will need when they enter the workforce. The Department of Family and Consumer Sci- ences offers a valuable experience for students major- ing in hospitality management or dietetics and nutri- tion. The course, Quantity Food Production and Service, takes students behind the scenes in the multifaceted world of running a restaurant in Lenoir Dining Hall. " Lenoir Hall enables us to offer students a real- istic preview of the food and beverage industry through a limited full service restaurant, " Jim Taylor, director of the hospitality management program, explained. Throughout the semester, each student rotates to different positions within the restaurant. They gain 88 ' Work Experience Ole Miss offers more than just a classroom experience. It also provides actual work experience. photograph by JOSEPH WARNER expertise by working the " front of the house " -serving, hosting and management-and the " back of the house " - preparing meals and washing dishes. According to the department ' s Web site, the course teaches students the fundamentals of " menu planning, recipe standardiza- tion, human resource utilization, hazard analysis of critical control points and costing. " " They gain an understanding of how to work under time limit pressures as a team, guest interaction and project management. They see firsthand how the delegation and follow through of work responsibilities is essential in a real world setting, " Taylor said. Taylor believes that working in the dining hall will provide students with the basic skills to be success- ful in any aspect of hospitality management or dietetics. The students agree. " It ' s the real thing, " Ben Ellard, senior hospitali- ty management major from Brandon, said. " You go back there, and you cook in the back. In the front you deal with customers-real customers that get mad if you mess something up. It ' s just a real deal. " " You actually are working like you ' re in a res- taurant, and you work with different people and their personalities, " Shira Scott, senior dietetics and nutrition major from Clarksdale, said. " You learn how to problem solve and how to multitask, and that ' s the main part of food service. " Scott added that working in various restaurant positions throughout the semester has helped her de- velop skills she will need if she ever works in the food service industry. Students earn course credit for working in Lenoir Din- ing Hall, but some would do the work without compen- sation in order to build their skills and knowledge of the food service industry. " It ' s pretty much something that you can put on your resume and say you ' ve done because it gives you so much experience, " Ellard claimed. Across campus in Bishop Hall, students who dream of working as journalists are honing their skills in the S. Gale Denley Student Media Center. The state- of-the-art facility houses all aspects of the media: The Daily Mississippian, The DM Online. The Ole Miss, NewsWatch and Rebel Radio. The center also has departments devoted to advertising sales and creative services. Katrina Baker, junior journalism and English story by JAN NA JONES major from Petal, works as a beat reporter for The Daily Mississippian. Baker writes the administration beat, inter- viewing administrators about different issues concern- ing their jobs. She hopes to write as much as possible to prepare for a future career in journalism. " Being able to have a lot of art icles will help to build up my portfolio, which I will need in order to get an internship and later a job, " Baker said. " By working for The DM, I am able to enhance my writing skills. It is important to write all the time if you want to be a good writer. " Students bo rite for The Daily Mississippian are paid per article, but Baker claims she would do the work without pay in order to enhance her portfolio. Campus-run facilities are not the only places students can gain work experience while still in school. Corynne Ware, sophomore graphic design major from Tupelo, has been designing T-shirts since high school. She has been working off campus at the Ink Spot, a com- pany that prints T-shirts for local businesses and campus organizations, for a year. " I usually am given an idea for a T-shirt someone wants, and I design different options for the customer. " Ware said. " I also make T-shirts for Oxford. " While she has not been looking for internships yet. Ware knows the need for graphic designers is great. " I have questioned some magazine companies to see if they were looking, and graphic design interns are needed everywhere, " Ware said, i talked to the people from Paste, Good, and Relevant magazines, and the) were looking for graphic design interns any time possible. " Though she is paid for her work at the Ink Spot. Ware realizes the value of experience, whether or not one is compensated for it. " If I were to intern with a magazine and not get paid but get to experience the atmosphere around maga- zine companies, then 1 would [do it). " Ware concluded. " I think experience is needed for someone to decide if tins is the life they wish to pursue. 1 think shadowing people or working without pay for a while is great and beneficial to anyone who has a general idea of what the) would like to do in the future.

" The Princeton Review-which is not affiliated with Princeton University-bases its rankings on sur- veys of 120,000 students, averaging out to be about 325 students surveyed per campus. " In our opinion, each school in this book is a ' best ' when it comes to academics, " Robert Franek, the book ' s author, said in a Princeton Review press release. " Rut as anyone visiting colleges can attest, their campus cultures and offerings differ greatly. We compile rank- ings in multiple categories to give college applicants and their parents-particularly those who can ' t visit these schools-a wide range of information to decide which of these academically outstanding colleges will be best for them. It ' s all about the fit. " However, parents and students previewing colleges may not agree. Most seek colleges that are academ ically challenging, not those that, as the Review puts it, " are resting on their laurels. " Parents visiting colleges with their children are undoubtedly hesitant to 90 Studious Students spend their money on a university who made it into the top five for both party schools and students who do not study. The ranking is also unfair to those students who work hard and spend time studying for their classes. " I think this is a stereotype of Ole Miss students, " Mi- chelle Tomes, freshman history major from Pascagoula, said. " We party so much we don ' t have time to study. It makes me angry to be perceived like that. " Learning that Ole Miss students rarely study, many may challenge the academic toughness of the university. One only has to look at the various schools within the university to know that is not the case. The Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College was named best in the nation by Reader ' s Digest in 2005. The Public Accounting Report ranked the E.H. Patterson School of Accountancy ' s graduate and undergradu- ate programs in the nation ' s top 25 in 2006. In the 2006-2007 fiscal year, the School of Pharmacy ranked second among all pharmacy schools in total extramural research funding from all sources. The University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jack- son has the only level-one trauma center and the only level- three neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in the state. Rankings are one thing, but do Ole Miss students feel they are challenged academically? " I think Ole Miss is pretty tough academically, " Tomes, who took honors classes in high school, said. " As a freshman, I find myself challenged in academics everj day here. " " I ' m in the honors college, so for me it ' s been pretty tough, " Tommy Joe Martins, junior journalism major from Como, said. " Some of those classes can get pretty challeng- ing, but for the most part, I wouldn ' t say it ' s been just over- bearing. 1 think it ' s manageable if you put forth the time to study. " Some blame Ole Miss ' reputation as a party school for the fact that students rarely study, but others believe pro- crastination plays a role in study habits. " I think it ' s not necessarily just going out and party- ing, " Martins said. " I think it ' s students just keep putting stuff off, and it bites them.

Some call for a little effort wtograph by JOSEPH WARNER storr bv THOMAS MCKE1 92 Group Projects 1 l orking with others i s a life skill, something that cannot be avoided. Students have had to interact and work with one another for years. At Ole Miss, students continue to work with others to achieve a common goal many times throughout their collegiate career via group projects. The benefits of participating in group projects are great since having the ability to work with others is a vital skill. When searching for a job after college, one of the first questions a potential employer almost always asks is, " Do you work well with others? " " I feel that Ole Miss is really preparing me well for life after college, especially encouraging group projects, " Pete Conrad, sophomore accounting major from Des Peres, Mo., said. Another benefit of working with others is the fact that it helps some students get over social anxiety. Working with others is not the easiest thing for every- one to do, but getting a chance to practice it in college is invaluable. " Working on group projects here at school has been great, " Justin Boyd, junior managerial finance major from Carriere, said. " I ' m not a shy per- son, but I know that if I was shy, doing the projects like I ' ve done at Ole Miss would really help me break out of my shell. " While the benefits do outweigh the negatives, there are a few drawbacks that can arise in group situations, mostly depending on the type of people one ' s group is made up of. Oftentimes, a group of students will have that one bad apple, the person who does not contribute much to the task at hand and lets the rest of the group do all the work. " The thing that frustrates me the most is when I get put in a group, and just part of the group ends up doing all the work while the other part of the group slacks off, " Boyd said. However, most professors have caught on to that, and devised a plan to help keep situations like these in check. When the project is turned in or pre- sented, each group member fills out a paper that lets the professor know how the well the group worked together and what each member contributed to the project. " In all but one of my group projects, we have graded each other, " Conrad said. " It has really cut down on the slackers and has made for a much better experience. " Sometimes, having a person that does not work as hard as everyone else can be a blessing in disguise. Working environments in the business world are not always going to be perfect. Having to work through a situation that is not perfect and push- ing a group member along can be invaluable experi- ence. " Any way yon cut it. working in a group situ- ation, whether the situation is a good one or bad one, is very beneficial. " Boul s;iid. " There is always something that can be taken from a project, whether il turns out good or bad. " Group Projects • 95 94 • School Anniversaries rhis year marked the 90th anniversary of the business school at Ole Miss. The University of Mississippi School of Business Administration was founded in 1917. It was the first business program in Mississippi and the first to receive A AC SB accredi- tation in 1946. The business school creates a contempo- rary business environment that enables students to understand the dynamic and complex global busi- ness world. The faculty attempt to create a learning environment to prepare students and allow them to achieve excellence while working to integrate cutting- edge information to the students. The business school administration strives to extend services to students to enhance learning, economic development and business growth. The School of Business Administration gives its students an opportunity to understand business and acquire special expertise in one or more of the school ' s areas of concentration. Programs in the school include: banking, economics, finance, insurance and risk management, management, marketing, mar- keting communications, manage ment information systems and real estate. The American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business initially accredited the school in 1944. This accreditation is only offered to schools that meet the academic stan- dards and program requirements of the assembly. The school continues to revise its programs to meet the standards reflective of contemporary issues and demands. The business school is committed to prepar- ing students for the real world of business. Students are provided with resources in and out of the class- room and are also encouraged to prepare early when searching for a job. Resume workshops, mock inter- views and business etiquette workshops are constant- ly held to help the students. They also have the chance to put their skills to the test when recruiters and top management from large com- panies regularly interview on campus. The School of Business Administration has a student-friendly faculty. Advisors provide students re smaller to know th professors in CIclSS. {kentford} So] , Intl. Studies with academic advising to insure they are on track to graduate; they make sure students work toward a degree in their field of interest. The stall is always on hand to assist students in making class schedules, dis- cussing study abroad opportunities and preparing for their future in the business world. The Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College also celebrated an anniversary this year as the program turned 10. To celebrate, George Everett, a former direc- tor of the honors program, hosted its spring convoca- tion. " I love the personalized attention from profes- sors, " Rent Ford, sophomore international studies major from Hattiesburg, said. " The classes are smaller, so you get to know the professors in and out of class. Also, if you need help with anything, there ' s always someone there to sup- port, listen to and guide you. " In 1976 Everett and the Univer- sity Scholars Committee recruited high school seniors from Mississippi schools to be part of the first fresh- men honors class. The program was awarded a budget. They also were allowed one scholarship, the New- man Scholarship. In 1997 Jim and Sally Barksdale decided to donate funds to start the honors college. The honors college not only attracts a diverse group of high-performing students, but it also provides them a wonderful center of academic excellence to assist them in becoming exceptional in their fields and engaged citizens of their communities. According to the Ole Miss honors college Web site, " The Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College combines intellectual rigor with public service. It of- fers an education similar to that at prestigious private liberal-arts schools and universities but at a far lower cost. Small discussion-based classes, dedicated faculty and a nurturing staff enable honors students to experi- ence intellectual as well as personal growth. " In December 2007, Jim Barksdale wanted to continue to support growth of the honors college as he committed to donate $12.8 million over the course of five years. The donation will help to increase funding for scholarships, increase honors courses offered, hire additional staff and extend field experiences for students. School niversaries • 95 96 Teaching Assistants Some graduate students at Ole Miss live in a perpetual state of limbo between being an and being a student. F or Sallie Anglin the school day starts at 6 a.m., and her day ends late at night. During the clay she reads for class, exercises, writes and attends lectures. She also serves as teaching assistant for the English department, specifically the Shakespeare class, which is a junior level class that hegins at 8 a.m. each Tuesday and Thursday. Anglin is a doctoral student at the University of Mississippi, working to earn her doctorate in English, focusing on Renaissance literature. She received her undergraduate degree from Florida State University, and her master ' s degree from the University of Alabama. When she is not reading for her classes, writing, researching or attending her own classes, including two graduate seminars and an Italian course, Anglin is grading quizzes or leading discussion sections of the Shakespeare class. As a graduate student, Anglin deals with seminars, reading and working on her final paper. According to her. graduate school is not as easy as some might think. " " lour grade in a graduate course usually, but not always, depends on one thing, such as a paper, " Anglin said. " You have to work hard because if you can ' t make an A in a graduate course, it ma send signals that you don ' t belong in grad school, and that ' s always hanging around your neck. " s a teaching assistant Anglin deals with undergraduate students, making sure they understand the coursework the) have been assigned and making sure they keep up in class. She said being a TA is much easier than being a graduate instructor, however. ••Right now. I ' m a TA for a professor who docs the lecturing and assigning, " she said. " I ' m not teaching the class by myself, w Inch does make it a lot easier for you. " katie Rolley is a graduate student from Williamsburg, Va. She is currently working on her master ' s degree in biological science; she earned her undergraduate degree from irginia Commonwealth University. Rolley is currently enrolled in three graduate courses at Ole Miss while working as a TA in the biology department. She leads four sections of an undergraduate, non-majors biology lab. According to Rolley, it is a little hard to balance everything she has to do in a day, but she manages to do it well. " Sometimes it is quite frankly more like juggling, " she said. " On both days I teach, I ' ve got a graduate course wedged in between two classes I teach. Talk about running around a bit frazzled. " She says she uses her weekends as a time to catch up on everything that she needs to prepare for. " Generally I use the weekends as catch up days for lesson plans, putting PowerPoint presentations together, writing worksheets and quizzes, grading the main assignments that have been turned in to me, " Rolley said. " I ' d say that I get all of my course work done during the week, but that is not always the case. " William Paul Hustwit is a doctoral student from Wooster, Ohio. He earned his undergraduate degree from Kenyon College and his master ' s degree from Ole Miss. He is currently a graduate instructor for the history department. where he teaches a lower-level history class and in the dissertation phase of his doctorate in history program. Hustwit teaches two sections of the freshman U.S. Historj course. He said it takes work to balance graduate school and teaching courses, but it is manageable. " You have to learn to devote the right amount of time to the academic life, but hopefully being good at research and writing makes you better at being a teacher, " Hustwit said. He claimed the most rewarding thing about being a graduate instructor is teaching something that you enjoy. Rolley said the most rewarding thing about being a TA is watching a student learn something they did not understand before. " I love seeing a student ' s face light up because they ' get it, " when he or she understands and the fog of confusion Mils. " she said. " Being a TA for non-majors is especially challenging, but w itnessing students in diverse fields coming to appreciate biology or even how biologx relates to their field is verj rewarding too! " Teaching Assistants • [) a little photograph fey JOSEPH WARNER story by BROCK HERRINGTON ost people have a perception of the ' traditional college student as being single and in his or her early twenties. While this is true for the majority of the student popula- tion, the minority of " non-traditional " students is a growing one. Here at Ole Miss, more and more students are defying the norm as married and older students are making their mark at the university. Taylor Alber, senior art major from Ro- scisuko, seems like an average college student: she transferred from a community college, and she is only 21. But one thing separates Alber from other student: she is a wife. She has been married for over two years and has remained in college the entire time. Her husband, Nathan Alber, is also a student at the university, major- ing in broadcast journalism. " It is difficult going to school and be- ing married because school is so time consum- ing, " Alber said. " We don ' t get to spend as much time together as we would like because of jobs and schoolwork. It ' s hard to be a wife and go to school and work because I don ' t have much time to clean and cook. " Although being married adds extra re- sponsibility to her life, Alber claims she does not think her life changed that much. " The only thing that has changed is that we are busier than before, " Alber said. " We have to work to live. Jobs aren ' t just an option for making extra money like for some other college students; jobs are a necessity to live. " Another student, Marlene Holmes, is finishing up a degree she began in 1974. She returned to the university after getting married, having two children and living in Mobile, Nashville and Roanoke, Va. Although she was not a student, Holmes was never far from the university. " In the thirty years between my departure from Ole Miss and the graduation of the girls, we made many trips to the Ole Miss campus either for football games and tailgating in The Grove or for moving our daughters into or out of a dorm, soror- ity house or apartment, " Holmes said. " With each visit to the campus, my longing to come back and finish what I started three decades ago became stronger and stronger. " Since both her daughters had graduated, Holmes decided now was the time to return to Ole Miss to obtain her degree. The biggest challenge has been the different prerequisite requirements for a liberal arts degree, she said. " I had some lower division courses to complete before I could even launch into major courses required for a Southern studies major, " Holmes stated. " Among them was the fourth semes- ter of French when I had completed the other three semesters over 30 years ago. Another was college algebra where I had not worked an algebra prob- lem since high school. " She also had to make some other adjust- ments when becoming a student again. I learn how to academically discipline herseu a she claimed. " For me personally, I have had to re-dis- cipline myself to read, comprehend and feedback what I read, " she said. " I have had to relearn the skill of expressing my thoughts in writing, and con- trolling my time to get the work done when it needs to be done. I don ' t see how today ' s students do it all since I seem to spend most of my time in the books. " 98 Non-traditional Students Holmes has had to give up a large part of her own social life to return to Oxford. She is separated from her husband and her friends. " My husband continues to work in Nashville, " Holmes said. " We see each other every few weeks or so, but both of us have had to revert i to ' single living ' in a sense, which is a little different after 30 years of marriage. My life- style and social activities have taken a back- seat for a year while I am away from home to attend classes at Ole Miss. " Despite difficulties in enrolling and transferring classes, Holmes is on track to I graduate next May and is happy she decided to return to the university. " It has been a great experience and adventure for me, and my family is very proud of me for taking on this challenge, " Holmes said. " I am so glad I made this decision to come back to Ole Miss. " Alber shares the same sentiments despite her non-traditional status. " It ' s great living with your best friend, al- ways having someone to talk to and know- ing that someone is there for you that loves you no matter what, " Alber said. " Another thing is having someone to get up for every- day. Every college student has those days that you just don ' t want to get up and go to class, but knowing that someone besides you is counting on your education down the road. It ' s nice to have someone who ' s proud of you, other than your parents.

With the implementation of a national collegiate campaign against alcohol abuse, Ole Miss is attempting to change its image and provide accuate awareness on the effects of alcohol abuse. ston-br CATHERINE ROBINSON I his his year the University of Mississippi, as part of a new comprehensive alcohol prevention program, asked all entering freshmen, as well as sophomores, transfer students, junior and senior Greeks and junior and senior student athletes to complete Alco- holEdu. AlcoholEdu is an online alcohol prevention program. It is used on over 500 campuses nationwide. The program attempts to enlighten students on how to make well informed decisions about alcohol and how to better cope with others drinking behavior. In order to change the culture of alcohol on campus, the university has developed the mission to serve as a catalyst for environmental, perceptual and behavioral changes, which foster responsible deci- sions and healthy choices regarding the use, misuse and abuse of alcohol and drugs by student. Josh Kennedy, junior criminal justice major from Blue Springs, Mo., because of his classification. " I think it was a complete waste of time, " Kennedy said. " I am a student that doesn ' t drink, so the program did not do anything to help educate me and as for those that do drink I think they are already aware of the consequences that can be related to their decisions to drink. " The mandatory alcohol education required for all freshmen began between orientation and the beginning of fall semester and was to be completed before fall recruitment. Students who were to be sophomores, and all junior and seniors who partici- pate in either athletics or Greek life were required to complete AlcoholEdu before registering for spring se- mester classes. Kennedy also feels an alcohol educa- tion class in an actual classroom environment would have been better suited. " They should have put it into a 6 weeks pass or fail class in a university introduction course, " he said. AlcoholEdu was the nation ' s first online alcohol prevention program. According to its Web site, AlcoholEdu is designed as a population-level prevention program to be given to an entire popula- tion of students, such as an entering first-year class or a national Greek organization. This method creates a learning experience that motivates behavior change, resets unrealistic expectations about the effects of alcohol, links choices about drinking to academic and personal success and helps students practice safer decision-making. Sydney Herrin, senior criminal justice ma- jor from Jackson, was required to take AlcoholEdu because of her Greek affiliation. " I thought it was absolutely ridiculous, " Her- rin claimed. " Doing the program actually made me want to have a cold beer just to get through it. It also infuriated me that I had to take it a second time be- cause my Greek organization already required it for initiation because AlcoholEdu does not keep a record of their past scores. Requiring upper level Greeks to take it also just makes the system look worse than it is. Just because we are Greek doesn ' t mean we drink all the time. That isn ' t what Greek life is all about. It is a drastic over generalization. " Whether the students. Greek or non-Greek upper classmen or lower classmen, think it is a waste of time, the Ole Miss administration hopes this pro- gram will help engage the students of this universitj to create a healthier campus and community atmosphere.

Students have the opportunity to study in places such as Costa Rica, Belize, London, Scotland, China and Australia After completing the application process and the student loan packets and sched- uling flights, an Ole Miss student is ready to experience a semester abroad. Studying abroad for twelve weeks can change a student ' s entire perspec- tive not only on college but also life itself. Most people recognize the words " cul- ture shock, " where a person may feel disoriented due to the sudden change in a culture or way of life. Charles Gautier, sophomore accounting major from Long Beach, studied abroad in London, England during the spring semester. " You can ' t automatically adjust to another culture; you just have to go with the flow, " Gautier said. What people do not know about is " reverse culture shock. " It takes the av- erage student about three weeks to adjust to life in a different culture. However, when returning to America, students experience a shock they do not see coming. Readjusting to life in the States is one thing, but readjusting to life at Ole Miss is whole different ball game. Returning to school in Oxford means returning to the native, unaccented language; our " normal " preppy clothes; and our greasy, fat-infested, artery- clogging fast food. Students must no longer practice the art of interpreting people| speaking in different languages or attempting to talk with their hands or eat food 104-Siud Abroad that cannot even be pronounced. However, it is hard to leave life in what seems like a different world. Students reach a point of comfort during their time abroad where they realize they can live differently and enjoy it. They realize thai they really do not need a car or even a cell phone. Ruth Mauldin, senior international studies and French major from Florence, Ala., studied in Nantes, France for a semes- ter and learned a different way to live. " If there was something I could bring back to America, it would be public transporta- tion and the food, " Mauldin said. " It ' s just not necessary to use a bunch of gas driving all the time. You walk everywhere and you enjoy the day and you go through the gar- dens and admire what a spectacular place you ' re living in. It ' s a very calm, serene culture. " I think there was more of a dif- ference between city life and not cit life, " Gautier said. " Everything was on such a grander scale. It was a complete different way of living because I was in such a bigger city and not in a small college town. " Charlotte Mintz, a senior Spanish major from Monroe, La., spent her semester in Valencia, Spain. " It ' s weird leaving and coming back, " Mintz said. " You feel like time stops without you being here. At first it ' s hard to get back into the routine of things because you ' re so excited to be back until you realize how many things you missed, but nothing will ever compare to a semester studying abroad. " " Readjusting is like a catch-22, " Mauldin said. " I definitely missed Oxford, but I miss France too. It can be hard coming back if you ' ve changed a little while being abroad, and some of your friends might not accept how you ' ve grown. It ' s still easy to come back though because coming back to Ole Miss is coming back to family.

Studs Abroad • 105 eoladn As Carolyn Stanton steps down from a successful reign as provost, the university remembers her legacy and searches for a suitable replacement. photographs by JOSEPH WARNER story by NATALIE DICKSON rhe University of Mississippi will begin its search for someone to permanently fill its provost position in the spring, according to university officials. Former provost Carolyn Staton announced that she would retire from the position Jan. 1, though she announced her departure earlier in the semester. Chancellor Robert Khayat named Morris Stocks, the former senior vice chancellor for planning and operations, as the interim provost. Stocks was the obvious choice for interim provost, Khayat said, especially since Stocks had already been serving as an associate provost for a few years. Although Stocks is not officially the next provost for the university, he most certainly could move into the position, Khayat said. " I think he [Stocks] will ease into the duties well, " Khayat said. " I think he will be well-received by the staff. " According to Khayat, the university plans to assemble a provost search committee late in the spring semester. The provost position will be advertised to the academic community over the summer in publications such as The Chronicle of Higher Education. The application and interview process will begin fall 2009, Khayat said. By spring 2009, Ole Miss is expected to have hired a permanent provost. Until then, Stocks will serve as provost and perform all the duties that were required of Staton. The previous two provosts have been hired from within the university staff, including Staton and Gerald Walton, who filled the position before Staton. Khayat said it makes sense to hire someone who is already familiar with Ole Miss ' culture, history and people, among other things. Khayat added that the possibility of someone new cannot be ruled out, though. " There is a strong case for bringing in fresh perspective, " he said. When Ole Miss was searching for a replacement for Walton, the university launched a nationwide search but felt the best candidate, Staton, was already on staff, he said. Staton has worked at the university for more than 30 years, beginning in 1977 when she joined the faculty at the School of Law. She eventually moved to administration as interim vice chancellor of academic affairs in 1994 and then served as associate provost before she was named Ole Miss ' provost in 1999. Since that time, the university has made steady progress in the realm of academia, Khayat said. " Her work is remarkable; she ' s been courageous, and she ' s had some hard decisions, " he said. " But we ' ve been in an upward mode. " Staton said when she assumed the position of provost, she wanted to improve the quality of academics at Ole Miss. " I wanted to ensure that Ole Miss was regarded as a serious academic institution, " she said. One of her dreams for the university was to establish a respected international program, she said. That dream was fulfilled in 1997 with the founding of the Croft Institute for International Studies. Other institutions that Staton was instrumental in founding include the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, the Academic Support Center and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. Despite all of this, Staton commented that one is never able to accomplish as much as one would like. However, she said she believes that Ole Miss is now regarded more seriously as a center for academia. Staton also credited her colleagues for the accomplishments of her tenure. " You couldn ' t have asked for a better atmosphere, " she said. " There was a real collegiality and teamwork. It was really idyllic. " As much as she enjoyed her time as provost, Staton said that it was time for her to retire. " It was time to move on and spend time with family, " she said. The position of provost requires a lot of stamina, and for someone who is in her 60 ' s, working late in the night just is not as feasible, she said. Staton plans to sta with the university through next year in order to help with the construction of the new residential college and for the presidential debate in the fall. However, she does not even plan to leave the area after that. " I will stav in Oxford forever and ever. " she said. Provost Retirement • 107 Am ACADEMIC DEANS DR. TOM BURNHAM SCHOOL OF EDUCATION DR.

Huge signs sprung up in The Grove overnight, announcing various candidates in vivid reds, blues, greens and yellows. Campaign posters dotted every building on campus and most of the businesses in Oxford. " My main goal with campaigning was to have the entire campus involved. Involving everyone helped when we needed to communicate with every group on the campus. " Charles Cascio, this year ' s Colonel Reb, said. The competition for the title of Miss Ole Miss was between Katie Farris and Lillie Flenorl. The Colonel Reb contest was a bit larger with Cascio, Michael Coleman. Austin Ellis, Lane Rush and Richard Robertson all vying for the title. " We put in tons of work starting about a month or so before the election. . .. However, the amount of excitement from within the chapter made it not seem like work at all. It was by far the most fun and exciting month of my college career. " Farris, winner of Miss Ole Miss, said. After the first election, Farris was named Miss Ole Miss. However, the outcome of the Colonel Reb contest was not as clear, as Cascio and Rush had to compete again in a runoff election. " Finding out about the runoff was very exciting but the most nerve-racking part of the whole campaign.... We [the campaign team] immediately went to the drawing board after we found out I was in the runoff and planned every move we were going to make the next day step-by-step, " Cascio said. Cascio defeated Rush in the runoff to win the title of Colonel Reb. Farris and Cascio are some of the best and brightest Ole Miss has to offer and will represent the Colonel Reb and Miss Ole Miss titles well. Cascio, son of Gayton and Elaine Cascio of Greenville, is a senior marketing major. He is an active member of Sigma Nu where he has served as pledge class president, recorder, rush chairman and vice-president. In addition, Cascio serves as the senior class president, Student-Alumni Council president and past president of the Lambda Sigma Honor Society. Cascio has been an intern for the University of Mississippi Foundation, an orientation leader and a member of the Chancellor ' s Leadership Class. In the Associated Student Body, he has served as a senator for the business school, chairman of the University Development Committee and currently serves as the director of student services. " Colonel Reb is truly the highest honor I have received at Ole Miss. To me, it is the way students say, ' This is who we want as our representative of our school. ' It was easy to work hard for something you believe in. It was an honor during campaign week and will always be an honor to represent Ole Miss as Colonel Reb 2007. " Cascio said. Farris, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hardy Farris III of Vicksburg, is a senior accountancy major. A member of Chi Omega, she currently serves as president. In the Associated Student Body, she is currently on the presidential cabinet as an executive assistant and has previously held the positions of senator. Finance Committee member and Judicial Council member. Active on campus, Farris has served as an orientation leader and a Freshman Focus mentor. She is a member of the Student-Alumni Council and Senior Class Executive Committee and is involved w ith Campus Crusade for Christ. She is currently vice-president for publicity of the E. H. Patterson School of Accountancy and is the recipient of the James W. I)a is Scholarship in Accountancy. " I feel so blessed and honored to have even been thought of as a worthy candidate for Miss Ole Miss. My goal is to be the best example I can be to other students. It is a privilege to ser e the university and to give back to a place that has given so much to me. " Farris said.

" She is an outstanding representative for our uni- versity and the embodiment of an Ole Miss lady, " Tag- gart said. " Her beauty, charm, heart for her friends and winsome spirit make her a very special girl. " Jones is the president of her sorority and has held positions including vice president of membership, assistant recruitment team member, chaplain and sister- hood enrichment trainer. On campus, Jones is a member of the Ole Miss Marketing Organization and Order of Omega. She has also served as the marketing director for the Student Spirit Committee and the membership chair for Mortar Board. She has previously been elected as sophomore Homecoming maid in 2005. Jones has served as a team captain for Relay for Life and helped organize a team that raised over $2,000 for the American Cancer Society. She also has volun- teered and raised money for organizations including Prevent Child Abuse America, March of Dimes and Girl Scouts of America. " KD and Ole Miss have both given me opportuni- ties and friendships that have helped make me a bet- ter and stronger person, " Jones said. " I wouldn ' t trade this chance to represent my sorority and my university for anything in the world. Ole Miss is such an amazing place, and I will never forget how much it means to me. " Jones ' crown is not only a symbol of her love for Ole Miss; it is a link to the mother she lost in seventh grade to a brain tumor. She views her title as Homecom- ing Queen as her way of continuing the legacy of her mother, Jeanene Petkovsek Jones. Like Amanda, she was involved and well known on the Ole Miss campus. Her mother was recruitment chair for her sorority, a campus beauty and voted best dressed at Ole Miss in 1982. " Since I ' ve been at Ole Miss, I have met many people who knew my mother, and they all have nothing but the nicest things to say about her, " Jones said. " She touched many, many people, and I can only hope to be remembered as fondly as she is. " Nine Homecoming maids preceded Jones ' walk onto the field as queen. Members of each class elected a maid during the personality elections. The M-Club, an Ole Miss organization composed of athletes who have received a varsity letter, also elected five maids. Although the M-Club formerly chose the entire Homecoming court, members of the organization felt the student body should also have a role in choosing maids, David Wells, co-sponsor of the M-Club, said. A male member of the M-Club always escorts the maids on the field. Maids elected by their respective classes were freshman Sally White, sophomore Anna Taylor, junior Molly Aiken and senior Claire Morris. The M-Club elected seniors Lindsey Roy and Sirdonea Davis, junior Marlee Kevech, sophomore Alliesah Easly and freshman Kayla Melson.

(Mass Favorites • 1 19 Dreaming of becoming the next Miss America, girls from Ole Miss compete for the title of Miss University. contributed by IMAGING SERVICES story by JERMAINE JACKSON Earning " i i • t J n Feb. 7, amidst thunderous applause and a nearly three-minute standing — S ovation, Amanda Harmon joined the ranks of many women before her as she was crowned the 2007 Miss University. Harmon, a 2007 graduate of Ole Miss with a degree in marketing communications, said the night ranked among one of the best nights of her life. " After I heard my name called, I could not believe it, " Harmon said. " I remember thinking that I must have been mistaken and misheard. I couldn ' t have just been named Miss University. " For Harmon, earning the title Miss University means more than a tiara and a sash. She said it means a chance to give back to a university that has given her so much. " For the next year, I was the representative of Ole Miss, " Harmon said. " It ' s a huge responsibility but also a chance for me to do my best to make Ole Miss shine brighter, if that ' s even possible. I am able to give my alma mater a fraction of what the university has given me. " Harmon said she knows many people think the Miss University contest is nothing more than a beauty or a popularity contest. But the contest is about much more than beauty, she said. " With all the beauty contests out there, it ' s hard to get people to understand what makes the Miss University pageant unique, " she said. " But it ' s so much more than what people think. It ' s a contest of talent and scholarship. There ' s so much more in this pageant than looks. It is about personality and the person. " Claire Campassi agreed. Campassi, the 2007 second alternate for Miss University, said the contest centers on the contestant and her intellectual and talent attributes, not just her looks. " When you look at the scoring, you can see how much other factors are taken into consideration, " Campassi said. " Only 35 percent of your total score comes from the evening wear or swimsuit rounds. " According to Jennifer Taylor, director of campus programming and coordinator of the Miss University pageant, a majority of the contestant ' s score comes from her understanding of issues and interviews. " Each contestant competes in interview, talent, swimwear and evening gown areas, " Taylor said. " The interview counts for 25 percent of the score and shows her ability to describe her platform, her understanding of the issue and her personality. " The platform is the contestant ' s issue they plan to work on during her reign. These platforms vary from organ and tissue donation to Harmon ' s platform of " Keeping a clear mind: Early education against substance abuse. " Taylor said the talent competition and diss University second interview make up 40 percent of the contestant ' s score. " The talent competition is worth 35 percent, " Taylor said. " It shows the contestant ' s ability to prepare and perform her talent in front of a group of people. The on-stage interview is worth five percent and is intended to show the contestant ' s ability to think under pressure. " Although the final 35 percent comes from a contestant ' s looks-swimwear and evening gown-Taylor said these areas are intended to help judges learn more about contestants. " The swimwear competition is used to show how physically fit a contestant is and how she maintains her personal health and evening gown shows her grace and style, " Tay lor said. " It shows her confidence while looking her best. " The Miss University pageant is a preliminary to the Miss Mississippi pageant. The winner of the Miss Mississippi pageant represents the state in the Miss America pageant. Taylor said the local pageant is intended to help the winner grow accustomed to the procedures in the other pageants. " The areas that contestants in Miss University are judged on are the s ame areas they ' ll have to win at in Miss Mississippi, " Taylor said. " They face these later in the pageant circuit, and therefore, we want them prepared. " According to Taylor, Miss University winners usually do very well in the Miss Mississippi pageant. " Miss University usually enters the Miss Mississippi pageant prepared and ready to go in the pageant. " she said. " Our representatives usually do very well and finish high in the pageant " Campassi said the pageant really forces contestants to apply all the skills they have and be the best representative for Ole Miss. " The Miss University pageant brings out what is best about women, " she said. " Intelligence, elegance, confidence and talent are those factors that each contestant has and w ill let shine through. Those are the traits we associate with Ole Miss and traits Ole Miss ' representative should have. " Harmon said the pageant is hard work, but the rewards are well worth it. " You have to practice and prepare months in advance, " Harmon said. " You are sometimes tired and ready to get it over with, but the work is worth it. You hone your skills and show the world what the state and the university are made of. " The Student Programming Board and the Department of Campus Programming sponsor the Miss I Diversity pageant. The pageant has been a fixture at Ole Miss since 1950. Since that time, five Miss University winners have gone on to w in the Miss Mississippi pageant. Lynda Mead and Susan Akin, winners of Miss University in 1959 and 1985 respectively, eventually went on to win the Miss America pageant.

The Parade of Beauties, an annual beauty pageant sponsored by the Student Programming Board, was held November 7 at the Ford Center. The theme was " Timeless Beauty. " Keeton said winning the pageant was a great way to end a stressful day. " I had trouble finding shoes, a dress-ev- erything, " Keeton said. " My zipper is broken, and my shoes don ' t fit. It ' s like Murphy ' s Law-any- thing that could have gone wrong did, but it was all worth it. 1 feel so relieved. " When the winner was announced and her name was called, Keeton said she was very sur- prised. " I was so ner- vous when they called my name, " she said. " I don ' t even know what got me off the bleachers. It ' s all very sur- real. " SPB has been preparing for this event for more than six months, Co-Pageant Director Jaklyn Wrigley, senior Spanish major from Ocean Springs, said. " Preparation includes picking out music, designing pro- grams, picking a date, creating entry forms for the contestants, holding meetings, keeping in contact with [the contestants], rind- ing patrons to help donate things and preparing the rehearsal the night before the pageant, " Wrigley said. Although the pageant went smoothly for the most part, Wrigley said the group did hit a couple of snags along the way. " We had a contestant drop out the last night, and of course, little things always go wrong, " she said. " Also, it was a little chaotic backstage with the contestants, but we did a good job handling everything. Any time you can get 87 girls uniformed with what they do in front of over 100 other people is a feat in itself. " The Parade of Beauties is SPB ' s biggest fundraiser, earning the organization around $15,000 a year, Wrigley said. This money is then used to fund other SPB events throughout the year. Twenty-five of the pageant ' s 88 con- testants were chosen to continue to the second round of the competi- tion. Of those, the judges planned on picking a top 10, but the scores were so close a top 12 had to be picked instead. Jennifer Taylor, director of campus pro- gramming, said working with such a large group of students to pull off an event this big is chal- lenging but fun. " The pageant is something I always look forward to, but it ' s also something that I ' m glad is done when it ' s over, " Taylor said. " It ' s very challenging to even coor- dinate, but I felt the pag- eant went really well. We had good participation from the contestants, and it almost sold out in the Ford Center. " Contestants were judged on their appearances and an interview with the judges, which took place before the pageant. Molly Franks, freshman undecided major from Fort Payne, Ala., said she enjoyed participating in the pageant and plans on doing so again. " It was really fun just seeing all the girls in their dresses and looking really pretty, " Franks said. " It was a great atmosphere. I ' ll definitely do it again next year. " Taylor said the large amount of girls participating in the pageant is reflective of how popular the event really is. " It is one of our largest attended events that we put on because it has become so popular over the years that people just look forward to it, " she said. " This event is just one draw for the female students on campus that are interested in beauty pageants, especially here at Ole Miss with the university having such beauti- ful girls. " Presenters were Associated Student Body President Drew Taggart and the 2007 Homecoming Queen Amanda Jones. Enter- tainment included vocal performances by Katherine Barkett, Chris- tian Feazell and Shelby Strong. Beta Alpha Psi of the E.H.

STUDIES CHINESE Those elected as juniors 124 • Phi Beta Kappa hile a majority of students are pledging Greek letters around Ole Miss, a rather small minority is earning theirs through Phi Beta Kappa - a prestigious honors program. The University of Mississippi ' s chapter of Phi Beta kappa accepts less than 10 percent of each graduating class, which leaves room for about 65 to 70 students at each induction, Maribeth Stolzen- burg, secretary and treasurer of the honors program, said. The chapter is a part of the Beta of Mississippi Chapter, which is a member of the National Phi Beta Kappa Society. Less than 300 colleges and universities around the country have a Phi Beta Kappa chapter. Eligible students are usually selected for membership during the spring semester of their senior year, although exceptions are made for graduate students and " a few advanced juniors, " Stolzenburg said. An evaluation of the students ' activities and honors are considered when the chapter invites a student to be a member of Phi Beta Kappa. " Candidates for membership in course should have a distinguished record of performance in liberal arts courses, exclusive of professional and vocational training, intern- ships and practica. They should demonstrate a broad exposure to the liberal arts and sciences, including substantial work in areas outside their major, " Stolzenburg said. In addition to a student evaluation, standards must be met on the national level. An inductee must have at least 90 semester hours of liberal work, along with 120 hours required for a degree. The minimum grade point average ratio for junior inductees is a 3.90, and the minimum grade point average ratio for senior inductees is a 3.80. Graduate students elected for the pro- gram are inducted on the basis limited to only five percent of the students who are in the process of earning doctoral degrees in the liberal arts fields. All members are invited to participate in various activi- ties and meets throughout the semester, Stolzenburg said. " They can vote on chapter actions and take part, at any level, in special events of the chapter. " Phi liclii Kiippa • 12 3 Letter from the President To my very dear friends, I would like to take a brief moment just to thank all of you for the wonderful impact you have made on my life. It is almost impossible to sit here on my bed in my beloved Northgate apartment and try to come up with a few (Jermaine told me it could be only 400) words to express my feelings towards this institution and the last three and a half years of my life. My thoughts and my words seem so very inadequate when I consider the purpose of this letter. On August 20, 2004, 1 moved into that sacred spot that I came to know and love as Stockard room 503. Through a challenging first semester full of pledgeship, Croft introduction classes, swaps and that unending fear of not being invited to any , of the sororities ' fall formals, I | learned what I thought it meant I to be an Ole Miss student. Little did I know at the time, Ole Miss was about to change me in a way I never could have imagined when I first stepped into Stockard room 503. Over the course of I the next three years that I | was enrolled in this great university, I began to look for every way I could possibly be a part of what was happening on campus. Soon, Ole Miss did to me what I believe it does to almost all of us. In the words | of my grandfather, " It got holt of me to a point where even hollerin ' ' Calf Rope! ' wouldn ' t get me loose. " (Give me a call if you need a better translation, but I think everyone should get it.) I was transformed from a student in a college to an integral part of a very living and thriving organism. I learned that each person in this institution is not merely an addendum; rather, he or she is a required piece of an elaborate puzzle. I believe this puzzle is part of what truly makes our university magical. I am not talking about Harry Potter magic either. I am talking about the magic that is the sole reason that, " No one ever graduates " from Ole Miss. Frank Everett, I ' m afraid, was not necessarily describing the new tradition that we have begun in which students do not graduate for seven or eight years. No, he was describing the magic that keeps our amazing alumni returning every year for so many home football games that Homecoming seems average compared to the rest of the season. It is the same magic that I talked to Dr. Reardon about when I decided to run for president. I said, " I can ' t quite figure out what it is, but there is something very magical about this place and I want to be a big part of it. " Dr. Reardon leaned back in his chair (until I thought it might fall over), chuckled and said in his perfect Ole Miss drawl, " Well Drew, that ' s why I ' m still here after a thousand years. " Chancellor Rhayat, Dr. Reardon, Dr. Rellum, Dr. Ridgeway, Dr. Glisson, Dr. Sullivan-Gonzalez, Dr. Spargo, Mr. Whitman Smith, Mrs. Sheila Dossett, Mrs. Jennifer Taylor-this list is nowhere close to the number of people who deserve to be recognized on this campus, but what an all-star lineup in just these ten people! These people have shaped my life in a way I believe I still do not fully understand. The amazing thing is, though, I am only one of 14,000 students! These people offer the same advice, guidance, friendship and leadership to every student on this campus every single year! They are truly heroes responsible for impacting students ' lives that will have an influence on the entire world. These people are the ones who truly ensure the magic does not end every year at graduation. The effects they have had on each of our lives are immeasurable Y| and will last for our entire lives, and I for this we should be truly grateful. I This magic I describe, though, is also not at all static; it is ever-changing and evolving into J something new. Many times when we talk about our university, we focus on the past triumphs, traditions and histories. These are all highly essential to making this institution what it is, but we should also note that each part of our history came as a result of a major progress from the status quo at the time. I think we should really try to understand | the responsibility that knowledge (carries. It means that we have a duty to the future of our university. We can no longer be cowMiss. Let us strive to share that with every student embarking on the journey we call " college " with us. Students, my very best friends, I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to be part of your lives. These years truly have been too short, but they also truly have been the best years of my life. You have been such an incredible part of this adventure, and each one of you has made it a little more special for me. Faculty, staff, and administrators, I cannot begin to express my gratitude for what you have taught me, the friendships you have offered me and the roads for the future you have opened for me. It has been an outstanding honor to be a small part of this great university, and it is one I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you all and I truly love you, President of The Associated Student Body of The Univer sity of Mississippi 126 • ASB President ' s Letter President CHARLES CASCIO Vice President ANDREW EDWARDS it . ■ ' m. Secretary Treasurer BENTON YORK fromthe SENIORS Senior class officers find time to organize a committee that conceived the idea to honor a dean closely involved with the seniors by naming a scholarship fund after him. photographs by JOSEPH WARNER story by CATHERINE ROBINSON Each year, the University of Mississippi senior class gives back to the university with a class gift. This year ' s senior class recently bestowed Dean of Students Dr. Thomas " Spark " Reardon with a scholarship in his name. The class of 2008 intends on raising a minimum of $25,000 to endow the scholarship for students who demonstrate financial need and strong leadership abilities. " We chose to raise $25,000 to endow a scholarship that is named for the class of 2008 and Sparky Reardon, " Charles Cascio, senior class president, said. " For almost three decades, Sparky has selfiessly given his time and efforts to Ole Miss and its students. He is always the person behind the scenes recognizing others and we as seniors felt it was his time to be honored. We hope to raise the $25,000 before May and award the scholarship to a rising senior at our graduation. " Dr. Reardon has worked in higher education for the last 29 years. At Ole Miss, he has served in numerous positions but currently serves as dean of students. The scholarship serves as the 2008 senior class project, which is chosen each year by class officers and an executive committee. The committee of some 60 students voted during the fall semester to create a scholarship and name it for Reardon.

Any success that may come my way in the future will no doubt be the product of my time spent here at Ole Miss. For everything unique to Ole Miss - the traditions, the history, the personable administration, the endless opportunities for success - 1 will always be grateful for my membership in the Ole Miss family. GAYTON CHARLES CASCIO, JR. leing involved in campus life at Ole Miss has taken me places that I had only dreamed about before college. From campaigns for A SB and homecoming to having conversations with United States presidential candidates, I have had my share of interesting times during my time here As many people always say, it ' s the people of Ole Miss, which make this place special. Traveling across the country representing Ole Miss at various conferences, this is evident. We are fortunate to have faculty, administration and alumni who are deeply concerned with Ole Miss students ' lives. In addition, no where else will you find a student body that is more fulfilled with their college experience than at Ole Miss. Ole Miss is a place where you come to get an education in academics, but it is also a place where you get an education in life, and no other university can offer that. 146 ' Hall of Fame LAURA ELIZABETH DOTY Ole Miss has given so much to me. One is family pride and traditions. Ole Miss has also presented me with opportunities. I have had the opportunity to make friends who will last a lifetime, the opportunity to listen to great teachers, fantastic speakers, and meet people who are changing the world. Finally, Ole Miss has given me a strong feel of ownership. I love Ole Miss because I know that I will take a little bit of it with me wherever I go. I know that it will always be home in more than one sense of the word. I take with me the greatest things in life - the things I that really matter. My family, my friends and my memories are all linked to Ole Miss. LILLIE CLARISSA FLENORL My love for Ole Miss is deeply rooted in family tradition, and this love has a deep place in my heart. -Is a child, my family and I would make trips to Oxford to attend Ole Miss football games, or you could find me running around in the back of various meeting rooms while my mother attended alumni functions and other gatherings; I guess you could say that I was literally reused at Ole Miss, and I have truly been blessed. The opportunities here have been wonderful, and I feel as if 1 am able to do anything that my heart desires. I have had good mentors at the university, audi have seen good leadership at the university. MUBINA AZIZ I SAN I " You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. " -Kahlil Gibran Through my years at Ole Miss, this mantra has become my ambition and my release. I am an ambassador of faith, of humanity, and of knowledge: a living investment in the world. Through volunteerism and collaboration, the University has driven me to realize that potential, the potential to give and be more than what I am, and become an agent of change. Hallo! Fame 147 ' V JERMAINE TERRELL JACKSON The love I have for Ole Tiss is extremely powerful. I am at the point in my life where if I hear Ole Miss I swell with pride and my mind swirls with good memories of times in the Grove, on the Square and even in the classroom. The love that I have for Ole Miss is one that has developed over time, but has become unconditional because of the slow courtship Ole Miss and I have had. Ole Miss has given me a sense of community, a desire to succeed and the opportunity to take the world by storm. Ole Miss has given me a sense of pride in my state, my alma mater and myself. Finally, Ole Miss has given me the chance to explore myself and find what I ' m good at and what I want to do in life. MY-LINH DINH NGO cannot I cannot accurately explain my love for Ole Miss. It ' s an experience that people must go through themselves to truly understand. Sitting in the Grove on a sunny afternoon, jogging through campus around sunset, joining in on the Rebel spirit during football or basketball season, or sitting on the back porch of the Honors College for class, these all contribute to that everlasting love for Ole Miss. Without Ole Miss - its faculty, administrators, and students - I would not be the person that I am today. They have instilled in me these morals and values that make me who I am, and they have provided me with opportunities that would be impossible to find elsewhere. EBONY DENISE NICHOLS f I Ole Miss is one of those places that exudes beauty,physically and emotionally. One can walk around campus and see the beautiful buildings, beautiful people, and beautiful landscaping. But my love for Ole Miss is not something that I can walk around and physically touch. It ' s the electricity that ' s in the air when you know a positive change is about to happen. Ole Miss is a place that ' s rich with diversity and potential to embrace all people. This university has given me hope j and a challenge not to accept i things the way they are, but to always challenge the status quo{ and ask, " Why? " I can ' t imagine a more fertile and nurturing environment in which to grow. 148 ' Hall of Fame RYAN CORY PERKINS Being selected into the Ole Miss Hall of Fame is one of the greatest honors that I will receive as a student at Ole Miss. Ole Miss has allowed me to become part of something truly unique and that is bigger than any one person, the Ole Miss family Through this relationship, I have been challenged to not only grow academically but also physically, spiritually and socially I am forever grateful to the university for the opportunities that it has provided me. During my tenure at Ole Miss, I am truly thankful for the people that I have had the opportunity to meet and work with on a daily basis such as Whitman Smith, Dr. Zia Shariat-Madar, the leadership of the Sally McDonnell Bcwksdale Honors College and countless others. I know that as I venture out to medical school and ultimately into the real world, I will be successful because of my time and experiences here at Ole Miss. SHADRACR TUCKER WHITE Ole Miss has given me a place to grow and invest myself in this community and in this world we all share. I firmly believe Ole Miss provides as good an opportunity as anywhere in the nation for students to engage themselves in serving their fellow man. If one is smart and motivated enough, Ole Miss can be a powerful vehicle to change our community and state. I will remember Ole Miss as a beloved place that opened the doors necessary to transform me into a socially conscious, publicly-minded individual. Ole Miss has not only made me a better person, it has made me a better citizen, and that is irreplaceable.

Ramachadran. Bill Bryson ' s " The Thunderbolt Kid " was hilarious. % 4. What do you do to relax? Designing and building furniture in my woodshop or long road trips on my Harley Davidson. 5. Describe the worst class you ever took in college. Sociology of the Family. It was taught by a recently divorced woman that had some axe to grind on all the guys in class. Come to think of it, it was all men on the planet. 6. What made you want to become a teacher? You kidding me? There ' s not a better job than being a university profes- sor. My days are spent researching, teaching and learning about all kinds of fascinating topics in psychology. I interact daily in wonderfully and intellectually stimulating ways with bright and inquisitive faculty and students. And I would like to think that the teaching I do positively af- fects the lives of young people and that the research I conduct contrib- utes in important and meaningful ways to the field of psychology. 7. What factors do you consider when giving a student his or her final grade? Contrary to popular belief, there is no " Final Grade Roulette Wheel " in my office. Final grades simply reflect mastery of course material. Sorry, you just got to get learning. 8. How do you handle a bad student? I teach them how to be a better student using a myriad of secret techniques. And they never see it coming. I mil Caitlin Cassidy .... Freshman Kori Castle .... Junioi Michael Carzel ( " allies ....

Sophomore Personalities • 165 a glimpse at . • • lillie flenorl Following in her mother ' s footsteps, Lillie Flenorl serves as a campus leader at Ole Miss. j J j i 166 Personalities The year was 1979, and the place was The University of Mississippi. Rose Jackson, a senior majoring in education, was a candidate for Miss Ole Miss, one of the most prestigious honors at the University. Posters around campus bore Jackson ' s campaign slogan, " Pick a Rose. " Although Jackson did not win her election, she was inducted into the Ole Miss Hall Of Fame. Fast- forward 1 8 years to 2007. Jackson is married with one daughter and currently serves as vice president of the Ole Miss Alumni Association. Her daughter, Lillie Flenorl, is a senior at Ole Miss. Flenorl said she and her mother have many qualities in common. " My mother and I are very similar, " Flenorl said. " Many of the organizations she was a part of in college I ' m active in. I hold the same position in my sorority that my mom once held. " Rose Jackson-Flenorl said she once told her daughter that they shared much in common with another Ole Miss family. " I told Lillie that we were like the Mannings and the Heisman trophy, " Jackson-Flenorl said. " Archie won the Heisman, and Eli was very close to winning himself. And look at them now. " Flenorl, who was one of the two candidates for Miss Ole Miss 2007, said the campaign was hard, but she learned a few life lessons along the way. " The campaign was hard but really fun, " Flenorl said. " I learned so much and met so many new people. But it was a lot of work campaigning and talking to people. It was an unforgettable experience. " Before she decided to run for Miss Ole Miss, Flenorl talked with her mother about the idea. She also took time to look at her mother ' s campaign materials. " One of the first things I did when I decided to run for Miss Ole Miss 1 was look at some of the things from my mother ' s campaign, " Flenorl said. J " Looking at her old campaign posters and other stuff made me realize how I much work this would be. " I Jackson-Flenorl offered her daughter some advice about running for I Miss Ole Miss before the campaign. ■ " I tried to explain to her that it was a lot of work and it would be m hard, " Flenorl said. " Things happen that could be hurtful or hard to handle. I But it ' s an honor to be able to represent your university, and I was proud of m her for wanting to take that step. " ■ When asked about the importance of her daughter following in her m footsteps, Jackson-Flenorl said her daughter being an individual was more ■ important. ■ " It was very important to me that Lillie be her own person. I ■ wanted her to make her own mark, have her own college experience ■ and her own identity, " Jackson-Flenorl said. " 1 wanted her to enjoy her ■ college experience. I wanted Ole Miss to be her school, not mine. Lillie ■ has taken advantage of all those things and more. " ■ Flenorl said she has taken many steps that her mother, has but m she is different as well. " My mom and I are similar, yes, but we have our own way of looking at things, " Flenorl said. " I ' ve learned so much from her and love doing some of the things she ' s done, but she ' s also encouraged me to take my own path, something I ' ve always tried to do.

Usually English 221 , World Literature to 1 650. 3. What is your favorite book to read outside of class? It varies. I always love the Odyssey. My favorite book of the Bible is Ecclesiastes. I enjoy reading encyclopedias at random. 4. What do you do to relax? I take long walks in the woods. 5. Describe the worst class you ever took in college. The worst class I ever took in college can ' t have been so bad because I can ' t remember what it was. The worst class I almost took in college was in the theory of education. 6. What made you want to become a teacher? As a good friend of mine, and my senior English teacher in high school, once said, " I couldn ' t believe they would pay me for talking about books. " 7. What factors do you consider when giving a student his or her final grade? Mostly, the quality of achievement on exams and papers. I let qualities of mind and heart influence me in a positive way sometimes, even if the written work doesn ' t entirely show them. 8. How do you handle a bad student? It depends entirely on what is " bad " about the student. A student who does poorly usually gets a D. A student who cheats on a paper or exam, or who clearly knows nothing about the material, or who fails to turn in enough important work, normally fails. I try to encourage or help, within reason, students who ask for encouragement or help. If a bad student does not ask, I tend to leave him or her alone. As for troublemakers, that problem rarely or never has come up for me in a serious way. Erica Du PlesMs .... Junior Cassi Nicole Dubois .... Senior Chantell Duckworth ....

I like most all movies, and I especially like comedies. My favorite movie is usually the last movie I watched. Over Christmas break I took my daughter to see Sweeny Todd (starring Johnny Depp). I don ' t think I will be going to a barber any time soon - but for whatever the reason I liked the movie. 2. What is your favorite class to teach? I am lucky because I typically like all the classes I get to the opportunity to teach. I especially like teaching classes with personality and those filled with freshmen and sophomores are usually a lot of fun. 3. What is your favorite book to read outside of class? I like books written by Greg lies and Bill Bryson. The last two I read by them were pretty good - " Third Degree " by Greg lies and " The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid: A Memoir " by Bill Bryson. 4. What do you do to relax? I am pretty good at relaxing. Probably the most relaxing thing I do is to cook, and I really like smoking ribs and hams. You ' re outside all day, and it doesn ' t take very much work. 5. Describe the worst class you ever took in college. The worst class (or classes) I took in college would be the ones I failed. 6. What made you want to become a teacher? Who wouldn ' t want to be a teacher, especially at Ole Miss? I work on a beautiful campus filled with really good students, and I have great folks to work with. In addition, we even occasionally have winning football seasons. 7. What factors do you consider when giving a student his or her final grade? A students ' final grade - that would be based how they did on tests and quizzes, whether or not they turned in their homework and what city or county they were from. 8. How do you handle a bad student? The only bad student is a student that doesn ' t study. Students at Ole Miss have an opportunity to get a great education and with that great education comes great opportunities. It really frus- trates me when a student doesn ' t take advantage of the oppor- tunity. ally eeny Monet Gauthier .... Junior llilar SamanthaGee .... Senior Ashley, George ...

The Outlaw Josey Wales (action) or Christmas Vacation (comedy). 2. What is your favorite class to teach? Bank Management. 3. What is your favorite book to read outside of class? The Bible. 4. What do you do to relax? I play golf, although sometimes the way I play it is not relaxing. 5. Describe the worst class you ever took in college. I had a class where the professor would assign eight chapters to read, and then ask exam questions about what number was in a table on page 218. I learned very little, and it seemed a waste of time. There was little application to the topic other than learning terms that I found to be of little use both then and now. 6. What made you want to become a teacher? I love to learn and thought I could help others learn things too. I would often think about the way a professor was doing things, and then hope to emulate the good things and avoid the bad things if I were ever fortunate enough to teach. 7. What factors do you consider when giving a student his or her final grade? Performance only. I am a stickler for fairness, and it is not fair to consider anything but performance. Everyone has a story to tell when they per- formed poorly in a class. We all have problems and difficulties, and you have to learn to overcome them. Recently, I had a student complain that he worked part-time and did not have time to do well in class. I explained to him that I worked a full-time and part-time job while putting myself through college with a wife and son and that I had to work hard to master the material too. We do not do our students a favor when we give them anything other than what they earn. 8. How do you handle a bad student? I treat them as fairly as I can. Most of the time a student does poorly because he or she has been successful in the past with bad scholastic behaviors, such as waiting a few hours before a test to start studying or missing a majority of classes. I try to help the student become better but almost always the advice includes working harder. If we can get students to learn to work hard, that may be the best lesson we will ever teach them. In some cases the student may not have the aptitude to do the work, but that is a rare situation, and most of the time the student doing poorly can improve if they will develop good study habits and attend every class. 1 Deborah Land ....

" " BO )i ' I »i ■ i • 192 Personality Profile Everyone has paused on a tryout episode of American Idol during a channel surfing session. The main attraction of these episodes is watching the people who believe they can " sing, " but it is also fun to watch the people who actually are musically inclined. We like to pick out our favorites and hope that we will see them in the final competition. What most Ole Miss students may not know is that they may have been cheering for a fellow Rebel. One of Ole Miss ' own, Shelby Strong, junior hospitality management major from Memphis, has made the top 1 60, passing through four rounds of competition. Although she did not make the actual show, Strong is continuing to pursue a singing career. She has been singing in her church since she was only two years old and has performed in the Parade of Beauties pageant twice. The American Idol competition is only one of the many singing competitions in which Strong has been involved. She is actively involved in the university choir and has been a guest soloist for the gospel choir. She won the university ' s own competition, Ole Miss Idol. She also competed in West Tennessee Idol and was named in the top five out of 900 contestants. While all these feats are impressive enough, Strong is also on top of her game in a major way: she has already recorded an album. " Two summers ago, I had the opportunity to meet a wonderful man who had produced Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and Hank Williams Junior, " Strong said. " It was a five-day process at Quad Studios in downtown Nashville, and I worked my butt off. I enjoyed every second of it. " After graduating, she plans on moving to Nashville to work with her producer. Even though she has worked hard on her own, she is grateful for all the opportunities she has received at Ole Miss. " Ole Miss has placed in front of me so many chances to share my talent, " she said. " Music is what I am, and I am ready to take on the stage. " V j Personalitj Profile 195 Anita Lovelace ....

Sophomore Personalities • 209 a glimpse at .m r ■ M ■ m ■ rr by JULIE WARD m m 210 Personalities Almost two weeks before the fall semester commenced, Ole Miss student Dunbar Flinn appeared on national television as one of the " seven strangers " featured on MTV ' s The Real World. While other students were flocking to baseball games, studying and visiting Sardis Lake, Flinn, a 22-year-old real estate major from Natchez, spent his spring semester abroad in Sydney, Australia, being followed by MTV cameramen. " I never even really thought ' everyone ' s going to see this ' until we were pretty much already done taping, " Flinn said. " It was much more like, ' What are these guys doing filmingme brush my teeth every day? ' " I MTV chose Flinn for The Real World: Sydney after holding a casting call at The Levee Bar and Grill in September 2006. Flinn thinks MTV chose him because of his unique background that did not fit the Ole Miss stereotype. " I think everyone else went in there and just acted like a typical Southerner, and I went in there acting like someone they had never seen before, " Flinn said. Flinn, a self-proclaimed social liberal, does not fit the basic mold of the " Ole Miss frat boy. " Though Flinn did pledge Kappa Alpha while at Ole Miss and appeared on the show wearing the typical fraternity uniform — Lacoste polo shirts and khakis — his background is atypical. Flinn left his parents ' home at the age of 1 5 to live with his grandmother in Natchez. He learned early on to be self-sufficient. Immediately upon his arrival, Flinn began working at Dunleith Plantation. Ole Miss gained Flinn as a freshman in the fall of 2002. He chose to study real estate and minor in English. Flinn found himself tangled in student loans and only able to pay tuition with credit cards. " I worked full time at various restaurants around here but didn ' t make near enough to cover tuition and rent, " Flinn said. In 2004 an Army National Guard captain in the Financial Aid Department encouraged Flinn to join the military for financial help. He started basic training that spring and spent the rest of the year with the military. With the help of the military, Flinn returned to Ole Miss to pursue his degree until September 2006 when he received the call to be on MTV ' s The Real World. I " The casting director told me ' It ' s kind of weird that we ' re here talking to j you. We came here looking for a girl, ' " Flinn said. " They spent a lot of time on Sorority Row looking for someone who stood out, but no one did. " While The Real World aired, Flinn worked as a bartender at Pearl Street Pasta. The restaurant and bar hosted viewings of the show with Flinn, who said it was strange t o watch himself on television. He also noted that the show aired only a small fraction of the time the roommates spent in Sydney. " It ' s so not how things went down, but it ' s cool. I did the show for the free trip to Australia, not to be on The Real World. If I could do it again and just not have cameras there, it would be even better, " Flinn said. As for now, Flinn is finishing his degree in real estate. He left his bartending job to become a real estate broker for Bill Flowers, a former Ole Miss football player who started a local real estate company. Flinn hopes to become a real estate developer in the future and thinks working with Bill Flowers is a good start. After spending another year in Oxford, Flinn hopes to be a part of rebuilding New Orleans. " It ' s something I ' m very passionate about, and I think it ' s a responsibility of people who grew up around here and of our generation, " Flinn said. As for his girlfriend Julie, who appeared on one episode of The Real World: Sydney, Flinn said, " I live with her, and I love her very much. I still want to get married to her and have little babies that look like her. " h -PI Personalities 211 Ramakrishna Samudrala .... Senior Alexia Sanders .... Sophomore Kendall Sanders ....

F or junior political science major Haley Crum, this dream has become a reality. Crum, an Oxford native, is the MTV Choose or Lose Street Team ' 08 reporter for the state of Mississippi. Her job is to cover the political and social issues that are affecting young Mississippi voters. " Each week I could be doing anything from shooting film for video stories to writing blogs and creating photo essays, " Crum said. " Since I cover issues for the entire state of Mississippi I have to travel a lot, which can be hard with school and my extracurricular activities. I really have to watch how I distribute my time to make sure everything gets done, but it ' s worth it. " According to Crum, MTV created the Choose or Lose Team so that young voters can learn about local issues and can compare those issues to what other young voters around the nation are facing. The team is comprised of one citizen journalist from each state and from the District of Columbia. Crum did not find out about the job until the day applications were due. Once she applied, she did not think that MTV would ever reply, she claimed. However, only a few weeks later, she received an e-mail from MTV, informing her that she was one of three finalists from Mississippi. Crum then had two weeks to produce a video package on a political or social issue in the area. After a few weeks, MTV called Crum to offer her a job as part of the team. " I graciously accepted the offer, and when we got off the phone, I started to scream. I was so excited, " Crum said. " The hardest part though was that MTV told me I couldn ' t tell anyone but my family and some friends that I got the job until they officially announced it, which would be a couple of months later. " Crum suggested that her experiences at Ole Miss gave her i skills and experience needed to obtain this job. J " I found out later that another Ole Miss journalism major I was picked as a finalist, so I guess that goes to show how great our I journalism department is here. " Crum said. ■ Crum will continue to work for MTV until the M presidential elections in November. Then, she will graduate the following May with degrees in English and journalism. Crum said she | is not sure if she will attend a graduate school or get a job after she graduates from Ole Miss. " This job has really opened my eyes to a lot of possibilities in journalism, " Crum said. " I once thought all I wanted to do was print journalism, but the more I work with multimedia, like creating videos and blogging, the more I want to explore what I ' m capable of.

A few of my favorites include To Kill a Mockingbird, Moliere, Waiting for Guffman, Moulin Rouge, The Princess Bride and The Lord of the Rings tril- ogy- 2. What is your favorite class to teach? Opera theatre. 3. What is your favorite book to read outside of class? There is no one book, but authors I enjoy are Anne Lamott, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Amy Tan, Azar Nafisi, the Dalai Lama, John Irving, C.S. Lewis, John Grisham and Dan Brown. 4. What do you do to relax? As you may observe from the answers above, I enjoy going to the movies, reading and an occasional game of golf. 5. Describe the worst class you ever took in college. A music theory class I took as a freshman in which the teacher ridiculed our lack of knowledge every week. I went to every class but learned very little under that negative approach. 6. What made you want to become a teacher? Two professors in graduate school: Dr. Michael Budds, music history, and Dr. Edwin Penhorwood, opera theatre. 7. What factors do you consider when giving a student his or her final grade? The grades are based on clearly defined percentages. If the student is bor- derline, I consider their integrity, work ethic and cooperation. 8. How do you handle a bad student? I work with the students individually in vocal studio instruction, and in small groups as well as the full ensemble in opera theatre. Since I teach a variety of class levels and ability, each student is challenged to improve their individual skills guided by the exercises and assignments given in class. Some students do not work as diligently as others, but it is impos- sible to hide in these classes, and there are no bad students. 220 Personalities Tori Terrell .... Junior Julian Terry ....

It ' s the mouthpiece of the students to the university administration, state of Mississippi and sometimes the nation, " Alyson Rossetti, an assistant director of communications for the Associated Student Body, said. The ASB works to promote the student inter- est in the governing of a university, she explained. " A university is only as strong as its student body, " Rossetti said. " The strength of a student body lies in its happiness and contentment. These are things the ASB works to provide for students: happiness and contentment. " Drew Taggart, the 90th Ole Miss student body president, said that the students govern the ASB and that it is the student body that possesses the real powers. " The ASB is a student-elected body who works for students, " Taggart said. " This student body chooses its representatives, from president to senator to judicial chairman, through the election process set out by the ASB Constitution. " The Associated Student Body operates un- der the rules and authority of the ASB Constitution and Code. The ASB has existed since 1917, but the current constitution was first written in 195 1. The rules divide the ASB into three branch- es, similar to the federal government. The ASB President who appoints committees and his or her presidential cabinet heads the executive branch. The cabinet is composed of a chief of staff, execu- tive assistants and liaisons with directors from eight different areas. Megan McRaney, the chief of staff for Taggart, said the cabinet is put in place to assist the president with the things he or she desires to accomplish for the student body. " The ASB President can ' t work alone, " McRaney said. " The cabinet ' s job is to help the president makes changes for students, whether it is in the area of academic affairs or student ser- vices. " The legislative branch is headed by the ASB Vice President and is composed of the campus senate. The senate has 48 members who are elect- ed from both on- and off-campus districts. They pass resolutions, bills and amendments affecting student life and the constitution. Erika Berry, the vice president, said the legislative branch only truly works when there is communication be- tween the senate and the student body. " These senators are elected by the students and work for student interest, " Berry said. " If there is a problem that needs to be addressed, students should go to their senator and tell them it needs fixing. That ' s how the senate really changes the university. " The ASB judicial chairman leads the judicial branch. The judicial chairman heads the judicial council, a group of students appointed by the chair and approved by the senate to rule on ASB Constitution and Code issues. The chair also heads the University Judicial Council, which President DREW TAGGART The ASB President serves as the chief executive of the student body, heads the executive branch and ap- points many students to various university committees and positions. The president serves as a liaison for the student body and therefore serves on many university committees. 238 • Associated Student Bod is composed of students and faculty.

" The judicial council makes sure there is a fair judicial for students who may face charges or if there is an ASB issues that needs to be ruled on, " Lawler said. " That ' s why it exists: to ensure fair- ness and consistency in student areas. " Taggart said the ASB works hard to make life easier for students each year.

" Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is a social music fraternity set up to uplift mankind through music, " Tyler Bigham, chapter president, said. " Most of us are in band or choir, but you really only have to have a love for music to be a Sinfonian. " Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia now boasts the title of the largest music fraternity in the world. There are more than 150,000 initiates to the fraternity, and there are fraternity chapters in over 200 college and university campuses across the U.S. Ossian Everett Mills, the former bursar of the New England Conservatory in Boston, founded Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia on October 6, 1898. The fifteenth chapter of the social fraternity, the Lambda Xi chapter at Ole Miss, was founded on March 31, 1962 and was re-chartered on May 4, 2002. The local Lambda Xi chapter is active on campus to promote music. " We set up several music events each year such as a jazz festival and a battle of the bands, " Bigham said. " We help with ushering at the Ford Center for various events that happen to come through. We also sing at nursing homes and hospitals across Oxford. Plus, we just like to sing or play music whenever we can. " According to Bigham to become a member of the Lambda Xi chapter one must already have a love for music, and a sense of brotherhood can apply to both the local chapter and chapters across the nation. The intention of membership and involvement in the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is for each member to gain a greater respect for music and advance it throughout the country, Bigham said.

Previously, the organization was known as the American Marketing Association, a group that had been on campus around 20 years. It was re- established as the Ole Miss Marketing Organization two years ago. OMMO functions as a key networking tool to help students meet professionals who work in all aspects of the field of marketing. Members are also given hands-on experience through involvement with consulting projects and other activities. " In the past, we ' ve been allowed to pitch a 30-second commercial idea to the Chancellor, " Keith Wilson, president of OMMO, said. " This commercial was shown during football games and is the main commercial promoting Ole Miss. " The organization has also welcomed several guest speakers from diverse industries, including Phillip Morris, Ramsey Advertising Agency, Harrah ' s Casino and the Memphis story by CATHERINE RORINSON Grizzlies. The speakers allow members to make crucial contacts within the marketing industry, in addition to taking students ' internship and job resumes. OMMO ' s largest fall event, the Annual Meet and Greet, is another excellent networking opportunity for business students. " [The Meet and Greet] serves as a social mixer for students and professionals to gain insight into different industries that require bright young marketers, " Wilson said. OMMO has partially and fully funded trips to career fairs around the South. Members have traveled to Nashville and met with the marketing vice president of the Nashville Predators NHL hockey team. The group also met with the marketing department of the Country Music Association. OMMO also funded a trip to an Atlanta career fair specifically focused on the marketing industry. During the trip, members visited two Atlanta advertising agencies as well as a public relations firm. A group of students also had the opportunity to travel to the FedEx Forum in Memphis and see a Grizzlies basketball game. Involvement in the organization is not limited to marketing majors, although the majority of members are students in the business school who have an interest in marketing, according to faculty advisor Stephanie Noble. To get involved in OMMO, students can join the organization, attend meetings, work in the consulting groups, go on field trips, participate in the executive team or help with fnndraising.

Building CONNECTIONS The Ad Club seeks to serve as a networking tool for its members interested in careers in advertising, public relations, marketing and graphic design. photographs by JOSEPH WARNER The Ole Miss Ad Club is built around its motto: " It ' s who you know! " For its members, the club acts as a key net- working tool that gives students an edge as they enter the competitive fields of ad- vertising, public relations, marketing and graphic design. " Our organization basically works as a connector for students to the real world, " Christina Psillas, Ad Club president, said. " Our mission is to con- nect members with internships in order to amplify their current knowledge of com- munications. " The Ad Club meets in the business school every other Tuesday evening with guest speakers present once or twice ;i month. Usually the speakers Psillas books are offering internships or recruiting stu- dents to work for their companies. " My goal as president is to look for the best interests of the student and hope- story by JAN NA JONES fully make the gap between college and career shorter, " Psillas said. Student involvement is key in the organization. Members participate in design competitions, fundraisers and national American Advertising Federa- tion competitions. The club ' s largest event is Ad Week during which prominent guest speakers from advertising agen- cies throughout the country are invited to speak on campus. Most are top-name executives in the fields of marketing, advertising and design. Ad Week benefits students in those areas of study because they are allowed to meet the speakers face-to-face and begin making connec- tions for their future careers. " Our organization is built around our logo, ' It ' s who you know ! ' because that ' s what we strongly believe in. " Psillas said. Ole Miss l Club • 255 Recruiting POTENTIAL Representing the best and the brightest, they are the driving force of the recruiting process. photographs by CHRIS KURTZ story by RACHAEL SHOOK Composed of 98 general members, 16 athletic recruiters and 10 executive committee mem- bers, the Ole Miss Ambassador program strives to recruit high school students to choose Ole Miss to further their education. The organization ' s mission statement says, " The Ole Miss Ambassadors are an extension of the Admissions Office at The University of Mississippi and are the driving force of the recruiting process of prospective students. " The Admissions Office hosts over 2,600 students a year for campus tours, given mostly by am- bassadors. The athletic ambassadors have between 150 and 170 unofficial visitors per month to visit the Ole Miss football program. In addition to giving tours, the ambassadors write letters and postcards to prospective stu- dents who are interested in the university. They also participate as the leaders in special campus visit days such as Fall and Spring Visit Days, the MOST Conference, Scholars Day and Preview Days. Members help the Admission Counselors at regional college fairs along with introducing internation- al students to the university. The athletic ambassadors actively work with the football office in recruiting athletes. They host prospects during official and unofficial visits, giving tours of the campus. The executive board consists of Executive Director Ryan Perkins; Assistant Executive Director Elizabeth Yerger; Director of Correspondence Najat Al-Sherri; Co-Directors of Special Events Vince Chamblee and Artair Rogers; Co-Directors of Tours Joel Duff and Katie Jackson; Director of Public Rela- tions Laura Doty; Secretary and Director of Multi- Cultural Affairs Crystal Martin and Athletic Liaison Jaklyn Wrigley along with Ryan Upshaw as their adviser. The program is strictly a volunteer organiza- tion on campus. The majority of members join the organization as a way to give back to the university and showcase it so that prospective students will learn to love it just as much as this group of individu- als. The program does, however, reward its members by hosting socials and recognizing those who show extreme dedication to the program. Executive Director Ryan Perkins believes the Ambassador program works to recruit the best and the brightest. " My favorite part of being the Executive Director is the opportunity to work with the ambas- sadors and admissions office on a daily basis and to help make their jobs as recruiters easier, " Perkins said. " The opportunity to give back and strengthen this university is a role that I don ' t take lightly. None of this would be possible if not for the hard work and dedication of our general and athletic ambassadors and the executive committee. Their dedication and commitment to recruiting the best and brightest stu- dents is the true strength of this program.

The leaders, who are of all majors, races and backgrounds, " calm the storm if anything, " said coordi- nator Rebecca Bertrand. The orientation leaders guide small groups of students and give them information about the university while also giving parents their perspective of the univer- sity. " We try to keep up with the national standards, " Bertrand said, which consist of the National Orientation Directors Association and the Council for the Advance- ment of Standards and guide the practice of orientation and parent programs. Orientation leaders go through a weekly training process during the school year to learn more about themselves and work as a team, she said. " Whitman (Smith) and I work with orientation leaders, and the graduate assistants are direct supervisors, " Bertrand said, who was a direct supervisor last year. Bertrand said that the orientation office ' s main goal in choosing students is to strive for heterogeneity. Whitman Smith, director of the orientation program, agreed. " I think our orientation leaders team is one of the most diverse groups on campus, " he said. " Every student on campus is not the same, and they do an excellent job. It ' s a prestigious group to be a part of. Our hope is that when (students) leave, they feel more knowledgeable, more comfortable and less nervous. We want people to feel home at Ole Miss.

" But campaign work is not the entire span of the work of the College Republicans. Norris said the group also used their meeting times to learn more about politics. " We discussed issues that were facing the political world today. " he said. " We also had speakers talk with the College Republicans to give us an insight into the world of politics and what makes it so important. " McDaniel Wicker, treasurer of the organization and the son of current Republican United States Senator Roger Wicker, said he joined the group because of what the Republi- can Party stands for. " I joined because I think it is important for college students to be involved with the politics that affect them every day, " he said. " I think the GOP has positive plans for the state and the country, and I want to be a part of ad- vancing those plans. " Norris said a group like the College Republicans is important because of the things a student can learn from it. " Politics affect our lives every day, and in order to be successful in life you have to keep up, " he said. " Many of the things we do or enjoy depend on politics, and that ' s what makes it so important.

With nearly 2,000 members from the student body, the College Republicans is regarded as one of the largest student organizations on cam- pus. Joshua Norris, the 2007-2008 chairman of the organization, said the main purpose of the group is to get students involved in politics. " The College Republicans is meant to ensure students are knowledgeable about politics on the local, state and national level, " Norris said. " We get students involved in campaigns through volunteering and learning about politics firsthand. " The College Republicans, according to Norris, has been involved heavily this past year on several campaigns throughout the state. " We had a tent in The Grove before each game to promote Haley Barbour as he ran for re-elec- tion, " Norris said. " We worked on every cam- paign imaginable with door-to-door efforts and headquarter assistance.

When the IMAGE program began at the University of Mississippi in 1991, it set out to ensure every minority the highest possibility of success in academia, community and personal growth. It originally began as a part of the Mississippi Alliance for Minority Participation; how- ever, it is now a part of the Mississippi Louis Strokes Alliance for Minority Participation. The IMAGE organization promotes academic success in the areas of math, sci- ences and engineering along with an em- phasis in establishing IMAGE as a positive influence on the Ole Miss campus. Students involved in this program speak highly about its impor- tance in the transition into college. " The IMAGE program has given me a jumpstart over other incoming fresh- men and has supported me in achieving success in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, " Natashia Bates, freshman nursing major, said. " I believe the IMAGE program nurtures the whole individual, not just the student. The foundation that it provides will serve as the primary basis of my anticipated success. " Along with four committees consist- ing of IMAGE officers, students and com- munity members, the program is able to promote, educate and serve others. Students involved in this program are given unlimited resources such as group mentors and com- puter labs for studying. Each semester IM- AGE sponsors different events such as mem- ber retreats, banquets and raffles benefiting organizations around campus and throughout the community.

Ebony Nichols, senior psychology major from Tunica and BSU president, said the group is designed to work as a voice for the students. " What the BSU does is facilitate the needs of minority students here at Ole Miss, " Nichols said. " It is to serve as a so- cial outlet as well as help get things done and take messages to the administration about those needs of students. We are working to give a voice to students that might not otherwise be heard. " The Black Student Union can track its roots back to the integration of Ole Miss. The BSU was founded as a so- cial support system for African-American students who might not feel welcome at the university. Nichols said the mission of the Black Student Union has changed a little. " We still serve as a social network for African-American students, but we also try to influence policy at the university to make sure all stu- dents are heard, " she said. Nichols said the BSU ' s main projects include building bridges with other organizations. " We work with other organizations to ensure that minority voice is included, " she said. " We team up with other groups to develop programs and events that include the interest of black students as well as enrich the university community. " According to Nichols, there is only one way to find out more about the BSU or get involved in the organization. " Come to a meeting and get involved, " Nichols said. " It is through unity that we can make changes that are beneficial to everyone, just not a certain group.

The Naval R0TC at Ole Miss was estab- lished on November 1, 1945 with the mission of educating and trainging qualified young men and women for service as commissioned officers in the Navy and Marine Corps. As the largest source of Navy and Marine Corps of- ficers, the NROTC Scholarship Program plays an important role in preparing mature young men and women for leadership positions in the increasingly technical field of Navy and Marine Corps. The NROTC Program was established to develop midshipmen mentally, morally and physically and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, and loyalty, and with the core values of honor, courage and commitment in order to commission college graduates as naval officers who possess a basic professional back- ground, are motivated toward careers in the naval service, and have a potential for future development in mind and character so as to as- sume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government. 270 ' Navy Rebels with WINGS An organization dedicated to achieving excellence in everything that they do.

Also known as RI, Rotary International is an organiza- tion that promotes leadership, professional development and service among young adults. " RI encourages us to consider the major needs areas, which include chil- dren at risk, disabled persons, health care, international understanding and goodwill, literacy and numeracy and population is- sues, " Trimella Jefferson, leader of the Ole Miss Rotaraets, said. While they tackle issues such as poverty, hunger and urban concerns, the Ole Miss Rotaraets are also dedicated to the effort to " Preserve Planet Earth. " About 20 students participate in the Ole Miss Rotary Club, which often performs community service along with the Oxford Rotary Club. The Rotaraets meet once a month, and they perform various service activities through- out the year. The Rotaraets donate much of their time and service to the less fortunate mem- bers of the Oxford community, specifically those who suffer from hunger. They also assist with the needs of low-income fami- lies. " We unload trucks, help stock the shelves and hand out food at the food pantry along with helping the children at the Boys and Girls Club with their home- work activities, " Jefferson said. The members participated in events such as the Bramlett Elementary School Supply Drive, and they gave out T-shirts while working stations at the Walk for Dia- betes. The members remain active in the community by participating in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America program. They have thrown Valentine ' s Day parties at Graceland and for the elderly Oxford citizens at Azalea Gardens, where they also host games of bingo. BADMINTON CLUB The Ole Miss Badminton Club was established in 2002 and has grown from organizing regu- lar practices to organizing and participating in friendly matched home tournaments, away tourna- ments and open tournaments at MSU and Memphis. They cur- rently have 40 members and are participating in an average of 5 tournaments per academic year. Membership is open to all Ole- Miss students, faculty and staff.

The women ' s council program teaches them ser- vant leadership skills and provided opportunities to these scholars to enhance their skills while a student on campus. They meet regularly for Red Plate Dinners and leadership seminars featuring speak- ers from successful backgrounds, usually alums of the University. Following graduation, the scholars are expected to give back to the program through mentoring future students, financially supporting the program and helping find outstanding young students. Members: Bridget Stanford, Joel Duff, Mary Morgan Johnson, Tina Kimble, Jennifer Lawrence, Crystal Martin, Logan Rebstock, Lindsay Rogers, Carolyn Rucker, Golda Sharpe, Magan Scott, Martin Crotts, Kane Alber and Sarah Garrett. Tlie Ole Miss Women ' s Council is a group of university and Oxford women dedicated to philanthropy, leadership and scholarship. Each year, the council selects a group of freshmen to complete a four-year pro- gram as Women ' s Council Scholars. The program provides scholars with mentors who meet with each of them weekly for one-on-one conversation. The Women ' s Council also hosts din- ners twice a month and provides speakers to talk to the scholars about personal paths of leadership and success. " Being a Women ' s Council Scholar has offered such a unique and beneficial experience, " Jennifer Law- rence, junior Southern studies and political science ma- jor from Simpsonville, Ky., said. " The Women ' s Council is a facilitator like no other. My life at Ole Miss has been immensely enriched by this program. " To become a scholar, applicants must first apply and pass the first round of cuts, Molly Meisenheimer, program director, said. A selection committee, consist- ing of professors and representatives from financial aid and scholarship, then interviews each candidate. Once selected, the scholars must maintain a 3.0 GPA, attend all regular leadership meetings and semi- nars, regularly meet with their mentors and demon- strate leadership on campus and in the community. " The special part about our program is the diverse group that comes together from all different ma- jors and all different walks of life, " Meisenheimer said. " People that may never have met are part of this scholar program, and they learn from one another that it takes many different types of people to make up a success- ful [group]. The opportunities offered to this group are indeed unique to college students. " 276 Women ' s Council Scholars No Foul PLAY The Diamond Girls are composed of a diverse group of girls who serve as the cheerleaders and bat girls for the baseball team. photographs CONTRI BL TED In terms of Ole Miss ' spirit leaders, the Diamond Girls are to baseball as the Ole Miss cheerleaders are to football. However, while the cheerleaders lead stunts and chants on the sidelines, the Diamond Girls move stray objects while dodging balls in the foul lines. " When we are training new girls, one of the most important things we teach is safety first, " Laura Doty, head of the Diamond Girls, said. Wliile they perform basic marketing duties such as stuffing and distributing programs before the game, the Diamond Girls do most of their work on the field with the team. They replace bats for both the Rebels and the opposing teams, and they prevent players from injury by quickly removing any objects that might trip a player while attempting to catch a foul ball. The squad, which consists of roughly 50 girls divided into three teams of red, white and blue, is selected early in the year prior to the season. A selection committee composed of the team coach, a marketing director and the team sponsor inter- views all the applicants. The girls are also tested on their knowledge of baseball and the Ole Miss team. The test includes questions as simple as " Who is the team ' s coach? " to those that require a thorough knowledge of the game. When the squad is not on the field assisting the players, they are encouraging the Rebel spirit of the fans. The girls arrive on the field at least two hours prior to the game, and arrange regular activi- ties such as the Eastern 8th, in which a lucky young fan will receive a baseball bat in the eighth inning. " We ' re really lucky to have such an enthu- siastic crowd at every game, and we ' re so proud to have such a great team, " Doty said. story by MARY CLAIRE JAGOR Head Diamond Girl: Laura Dot) Red Squad Captian: Laura Dotv Blue Squad Captian: Chessa Lytle White Squad Captian: Meg Joyner Members: Laura Dory, Lauren Radicioni, Carmen Rae Musgrove, Agneta Zvidrina, Chessa Lytle, lessica Seger, Madison Pitzer, Cavla Cook, Brooke Ewing ( atherine McDaniel, Molly Sims Ha nes.

" SSWO also provides input into the Depart- ment of Social Work operations and offerings by serving on the advisory board and attending faculty meetings, " Derrick Echoles, president of SSWO, said. The organization meets every three or four weeks to decide upon academic enrichment and service, social and fundraising events. Students from the Tupelo and Southaven campuses of Ole Miss are invited to all meetings and activities. Each semester, members of the organization are encouraged to perform 20 volunteer service hours. This year ' s service projects included fundraising for Angel Ranch and Christmas stockings for Head Start children. " Social network activities include spring cook- outs, an end of the semester study break breakfast and holiday parties, " Echoles said, who also serves on the School of Applied Sciences Presidents Council because of his SSWO position.

' ■Hi 288 Recruitment story by RACHEAL SHOOK 7? ecruitment is the most exciting time of the year for all parties involved. Most people on campus spend hours preparing for rush. Incoming freshmen, sorority members, fraternity members and the Pau- hellenie and Interfraternity Councils all spend a great deal of time for recruitment. The Panhellenic Council is in charge of the female part of Recruitment. They oversee all that goes on even before the first round of Recruitment begins. They choose recruitment counselors called Gamma Chis to make sure that each sorority house follows the Recruitment rules and that each potential new mem- ber is looked after. During the week of Recruitment, they work constantly on paper- work and stay up until the wee hours of the morning. The aforemen- tioned Gam- ma Chis are a group of women represent- ing every Panhellenic sorority on campus. Their main job is to take care of the poten- tial new members. Gamma Chis are paired and assigned to residence halls in order to meet with the potential new members every week before Recruitment. When Recruitment Week comes along, the Gamma Chis are in charge of taking all the girls going through Recruitment to each sorority house, making sure that everyone follows all of the rules. " Being a Gamma Chi captured the best part of Rush, " Emily Ragland, junior English major from Madison, said. " I believe that the girls on my floor and I will remain close for the rest of my college years. " The sororities change their houses into magi- cal wonderlands for Recruitment. The first round is for the sororities to introduce their philanthropy to the potential new members. Not only does each house have an activity to support their cause, they also show a video highlighting their sisterhood. Pictures Hash to different music as the women sing along with their o n words. The Philanthropy Round lasts two days. The second round is Skit Round. " The best part of Rush is Skit Round. Even when I was a freshman, it was the best. It ' s the most fun way to tell about your so- rority and have fun with the potential new members, " Meghan Scott, junior liberal arts major from Lucedale, said. Sororities spend weeks planning their skit. Each skit has a different theme and is filled with dance and music. So- rorities have a chance to showcase their most talented members with sing- ing, dancing and acting. " Skit round brings ev- eryone clos- er together, and it ' s very reward- ing, " Natalie Montalvo. junior mar- keting com- munications major from Miami, said. " I was in the skit, and photograph M II wii I R Mil HAELS was so much fun. and after rush everyone still comes up to me and says, ' You were so funny in the skit. ' " The third round, preference round, is a bit more serious during Recruitment. Sororities keep everything elegant and beautiful. The sorority members are all soft-spoken. Some even shed tears as they talk about their sisterhood bonds and how being in their sorority has changed their lives. For potential new members, each night they must rank which sororities they like best. On the other side, sororities rank their favorite potential new members as well. continued on page 290 Recruitment • 289 On the other hand, fraternity Recruitment is a bit different. The Interfraternity Council presides over this part of Recruitment. They also have three rounds but more houses to visit. Recruitment for the men focuses more on getting to know each individual potential new member. Round One seems to involve a lot of hand shaking and small talk. During Round Two, each house becomes less congested, and the potential new members try to persuade each house to invite them back. Each house the potential new member visits during Round Three is guar- anteed to give him a bid. Thus, after visiting these houses, the potential new members can pick which one they like best. The Interfraternity Council also has Re cruitment counselors to make sure that everyone follows the rules. These counselors are important but are not as active as the Gamma Chis are. " I liked the fact that I didn ' t have to make decisions in bid session, " Rlake Terry, senior accountancy major from Brandon, said. " I got to meet so many good guys. One of my goals for being a recruitment counselor was to make sure that the guys in my group gave every fraternity the respect they deserved. I also wanted to be there for the po- tential new members, giving them fair and honest answers to any questions they had. " Going through Recruitment can be overwhelming for all potential new members, male or female. The entire process is both fun and memorable. However, Recruitment is only the beginning; Bid Day is the true beginning of the Greek experience.

Many weeks of prepara- tion go ino the event in order for the men of Alpha Phi Alpha to put on a successful event. Women from the university participate in the pageant, and proceeds help the fraternity fund their philanthro- py. Along with the pageant, the fraternity partici- pates in numerous events like other fraternities, but most unique to Alpha Phi Alpha is its history. Since its founding on Dec. 4, 1906, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has supplied voice and vision to the struggle of African-Americans and people of color around the world. Alpha Phi Alpha , the first intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity established for African-Americans, was founded at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York by seven college men who recognized the need for a strong bond of brotherhood among African descendants. The visionary founders, known as " Jewels " of the fraternity, are Henry Arthur Callis, Charles Henry Chapman, Eugene Knickle Jones, George Biddle Relley, Nathaniel Allison Murray, Robert Harold Ogle and Vertner Woodson Tandy. The fra- ternity initially served as a study and support group for minority students who faced racial prejudice, both educationally and socially at Cornell. The Jewel founders and early leaders of the fraternity succeeded in laying a firm foundation for Alpha Phi Alpha ' s principles of scholarship, fellowship, good character and the uplifting of humanity. Alpha Phi Alpha chapters were developed at other colleges and universities, many of them historically black institutions, soon after the founding at Cornell. 294 • Alpha Phi Alpha " B te I B BSaESEif V National Chapter Founded 1906 Philanthropy Go to High School, Go To College Biggest Event Miss Black and Gold Number of Active Members 10 Mascot Ape Flower Golden Rose While continuing to stress academic excel- lence among its members, Alpha Phi Alpha also recognized the need to help correct the educational, economic, political and social injustices, faced by African- Americans. Alpha Phi Alpha has long stood at the forefront of the African-American community ' s fight for civil rights through leaders such as: W.E.B. DuBois, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., Edward Brooke, Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall, Andrew Young, Williams Gray, Paul Robertson and many others.

The proceeds from the event benefit the National Arthri- tis Research Foundation, which promotes arthritis awareness and funds research for a cure. The sorority raised around $2,000 from the event this year. " This year ' s sale was a huge success, " Rebecca Lee, national philanthropy chair, claimed. " We made over $1,800 this year, which is more than we have made in a long time, if not ever. " On the night of the event, the Alpha Omicron Pi house attracted hundreds of students with a sweet tooth. Members of the sorority sliced the pie in the kitchen and distributed the pieces to those who purchased a ticket. Stu- dents who had not purchased a ticket prior to the event could still purchase pie slices at the event. The sorority had something to offer to dessert fiends of all types as the selection included apple, chocolate silk, pecan, lemon meringue and key lim e pie. The sorority even had bulk orders of pie from other Greek organizations, such as Kappa Kappa Gamma and Phi Delta Theta. While the lure of delectable treats attracts many students to the event, the fraternity pie-eating con- test that is held during the sale is also responsible for bringing in the crowd. The contest is coordinated for just this purpose; Alpha Omicron Pi uses this spectator sport to attract more people, so they may raise more money for their philanthropy. Each fraternity and sorority sponsors one of its members to participate in the event, and the first contestant to fin- ish a whole pie the quickest is named the winner. The contestant from Sigma Alpha Epsilon won the contest this year. Members of Alpha Omicron Pi en- joy giving to the cause, especially in such a fun way as the pie sale is. Ac- cording to Lee, although many weeks of planning and hard work went into making the event run smoothly, the work was worth it. " All in all, it [the pie sale] was a very rewarding experience, " Meghan Scott, vice president of chapter relations, said. " It is wonderful to think a few hours of our time might actually help to find a cure for arthritis.

Upha Omicron Pi «297 F or one fraternity on the Ole Miss campus, tennis and dating go hand in hand. In fact, they can even change lives. This year, the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity used these things to help a family within the Ole Miss community during its ATO Greek Open and Date Auction, which the fraternity plans to make an annual event. The group raised money for the family of former University Police Department officer Robert Langley, who was killed in the fall semester of 2006 during a routine traf- fic stop on the edge of campus. JC Fleming, senior business major from Minden, La., and ATO philanthropy chairman, said after much deliberation, the fraternity decided the Langley family was the right choice to be the recipients of the philanthropy. " We thought about doing something like St. Jude, but we wanted to do it for someone in the community-a neighbor, " he said. " The Langley family needed the money, and it was a sad situation with what happened. " As part of the Greek Open, one girl from each soror- ity was in charge of helping to promote the event. Every fraternity and sorority participated in the event, letting their best tennis players take the court in the name of their orga- nization. The winner was the overall tennis champion. This year ' s winner was Phi Mu. During the date auction, all of the girls who partici- pated in the Greek Open earlier in the day were auctioned off. The fraternity raised around $5,000 during this portion of the philanthropy. However, the biggest part of the philanthropy funds raised by the organization came from various busi- nesses in the Oxford area. In order to raise the money, the fraternity took donations, and every fraternity member was required to raise $100 in ads. The best part of the event was getting to know the Langley family a little better, Fleming said. " Getting to know Mrs. Lisa Langley was really great, " he said. " The family was very much appreciative. " ATO has already begun looking for candidates for next year ' s event, Fleming said. The fraternity is trying to find a cause in the North Mississippi or Tennessee region. 298 • Alpha Tau Omega ABOVE Tin- men Ol Klpha Tau I Imega lames Anderson, Barrett Beard.

As one of the largest organizations for women in the world, they strive to extend their bonds worldwide.

The Chi Omegas of Ole Miss are no exception. Chi-O ' s philanthropy is the Gardner-Sim- mons Home in Tupelo. The Gardner-Simmons Home is a shelter for abused and neglected girls in and around the Tupelo area. Gardner-Simmons was established after a group of five Ole Miss members died tragically 20 years ago. It is named after two of the members: Margaret Gardner and Robin Sim- mons. Each year Chi-0 holds various events to support their local and national philanthropies. In previous years Chi Omega has held an event, Owls at the Alley, which is a bowling tournament between Ole Miss fraternities to raise money. The members of Chi-0 have also hosted a crawfish boil at the sorority house with live music, raising over 40,000 dollars. Members also give money every year to the Make-A-Wish foundation, the sorority ' s national phi- lanthropy.

Chi Omega«303 n a scorching hot day in late September, hundreds of hopeful freshman girls gathered in front of the steps of Fulton Chapel to receive bids from one of the nine Ole Miss Panhellenic sororities. After all of the joys and tears of formal Recruitment, the girls were anxious to receive the single strip of paper that revealed the Greek let- ters representing their home and sisterhood for the next four years. Just as anxious as the potential members, the active members in each sorority, who after four days of meeting and greeting both new and familiar faces, were ready to see their youngest sisters run down the hill from Fulton Chapel. At the Delta Delta Delta house, a huge blue and yellow ban- ner welcomed new members to " Tri Delta, Fly Home " , as active members sat patiently inside with gifts and plans for their pledges. " For Tri-Delt, bid day is kind of a welcome home party that is put together to immediately help the new pledg- es know that they are loved, and belong to our sorority, " Mary Ellen Ray, who was in charge of planning Tri-Delt ' s Bid Day, said. In order to make the pledges feel at home, Ray and her fellow Tri-Delt sisters donated a great amount of time to the prepare for Bid Day. The house was decked in Tri-Delt colors, and the walls were covered with signs of all the girls ' names and hometowns. With gifts scattered throughout the rooms, the house resembled an over-the-top bridal shower. Each pledge had a gift basket waiting for them full of blan- kets, t-shirts, cups and trinkets all bearing the sorority logo. Before the pledges ran down to the hill to their house, each Tri-Delt sister was prepared to greet them with a big hug and a Bid Day jersey. When they arrived, the girls were shown into the house and taken to meet other girls from their hometown to make sure they truly felt welcome. " Walking into the Tri-Delt house on bid day was like walking downstairs on Christmas morning! " Lenox Baker, Tri-Delt pledge, said. " There were presents everywhere, and so much excitement. " After everyone was accounted for, the pledges posed in front of the house for a chapter picture with all of the members of their new sorority, followed by a picture of just the pledge class. 304- Delta Delta Delia " Abner ' s delivered and everyone ate and enjoyed the fun atmosphere of music playing and people dancing around, " Marion Reyes, co-rush chairman, said. After a few short hours of food, socializ- ing and pictures, the new pledges boarded a trol- ley to the Oxford Lanes, where they bowled and had a little more fun getting acquainted with their new pledge class. " With a pledge class of 87 girls, you can go the whole semester without knowing everyone, so Bid Day is a great place to start, " Megan Harris, pledge class trainer, said. Rush chairs Megan Beasley and Marion Reyes agree that getting to hang out with all their new pledges and watching their excitement in get- ting to know each other made Bid Day the perfect celebration after all of their hard work during Recruitment. " It ' s a day completely centered around them in order to allow them to start developing lifelong friendships and to help them realize that they ' ve pledged a sorority that will give back to them for many years to come, " Ray said.

The ladies of Delta Gamma raised $15,000 last year for their philanthropy, which aids those who are blind or visu- ally impaired. " Anchor Splash has been a part of Ole Miss for decades, " Lizzie Williams, past Delta Gamma president, said. " It is one of the most successful sorority philan- thropies on campus. It is an event that our chapter cannot do alone but rather takes the participation of the entire Greek community. " DG devotes a week to Anchor Splash, which includes water-related competitions, a banner contest, an anchor scavenger hunt and a penny drop contest. Members of the sorority split up to coach fraternities on the events that take place in the Turner Center pool and help make the banners. Delta Gamma kicks off the Anchor Splash weekend with a barbecue dinner at the sorority house. Fraternities can compete in relays, a belly flop contest and the carry-the-cannon event. Each fraternity also nominates a member to compete in DG ' s Anchor Man contest. The Anchor Man is chosen based on total fraternity support and an answer to a DG-related ques- tion. Though Anchor Splash remains one of the most notable philanthropic events on campus, Delta Gamma plans to expand it in the future. " While currently fraternities are the only groups to actually participate in the Anchor Splash events, we look to getting the rest of Greek life involved in the future, " Williams said. 306 • Delta Gamma I ,1 OPPOSITE Delta Gamma coaches cheer on the fraternity they trained and prepared from the pool sidelines.

Delta Gamma • 507 ationally, the men of Delta Kappa Epsilon strive to cultivate general literature and social culture; the advancement and encouragement of intellectual excellence; the promotion of honorable friendship and useful citizenship; the development of a spirit of tolerance and respect for the rights and views of others; the maintenance of gentlemanly dignity, self-respect and morality in all circumstances and the union of stout hearts and kindred interests to secure the due reward to the brothers of the Chi chapter of the University of Mississippi are no different. Deke ' s biggest event is Grey Day, their annual spring party. This event is held in honor of the 1 1 " 1 Mississippi Company Infantry, called the " University Greys, " because the majority of that infantry were Dekes who fought for the South in the Civil War. Grey Day is a weekend long party beginning in the city of Oxford and ending at their fraternity house. Deke holds its annual philanthropy, a powder puff football tournament, with Kappa Kappa Gamma. During the event, flag football games are held between each sorority. The sororities are paired up with members of fraternities to coach them. Before the final game, the men from each fraternity compete in a cheerleading competition coached by one of the sororities. The men use this event to raise money for the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi. The men of Delta Kappa Epsilon have also adopted over six miles of highway that they will maintain and keep clean throughout the year. They are also doing volunteer work for a local food pantry and the Boys and Girls Club of Oxford. 308 • Delta Kappa Epsilon Colors Crimson, Blue and Gold Nickname Deke Philanthropy Mississippi Diabetes Foundation Symbol Rampant Lion Biggest Event of the Year Grey Day OPPOSITE Delta Kappa Epsilon brothers spend quality time doing many things, including taking in a Rebel Football game.

Delta kappa Epsilon • 309 pholo raphmbNTIMBUTED story by CATHERINE ROBINSON rhe Phi Chapter of Saint Anthony Hall, also known as Delta Psi, is a 150-year- old national social fraternity com- posed of a small number of chapters ranging all over the country. The Phi Chapter fosters the id eals of a close-knit brotherhood and academ- ic excellence here at Ole Miss. Delta Psi ' s biggest event is the annual Saints and Angels Ball, which is also their spring formal. The men of Delta Psi usually spend a couple days out of town. The broth- ers have a dinner and a disc jockey or band perform for them in a large ballroom. This year the Saints and Angels Ball will be in New Orleans. In previous years it has been in Mem- phis, Nashville and other cities relatively close to Oxford. When the men of Delta Psi are not bond- ing together at the Angels and Saints Ball, they devote a large portion of their time to their phi- lanthropy, the Special Olympics. Delta Psi helps man every Special Olympics event in Oxford, such as track and field day, bowling, basket- ball and roller-skating. On top of the Special Olympics, the men of Delta Psi plan to start a Greek-wide recycling initiative, where proceeds of the recycling of all Greek organizations for one week will be used to help fund a separate campus-wide initiative. 310- Delta Psi Delia T si National Chapter Founded 1847 Number of Active Members 51 Philanthropy Special Olympics House Mother Sherreda Hilliard Sweetheart Page Portas Rappa Delta ABOVE ThemenolDiiu Pii Brian Alexander, Dru Ashoo, Griff Camp, Vince Chamblee, Tyler Craft, lohn Darnell.

During the week, the chapter presented programs based upon the sorority ' s Five Point Thrust of Econom- ic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health and Political Awareness and Involvement. " Delta Week is always a fun-filled and a highly anticipated week of the semester, " Sonia Haynes, programming and planning chair for the Lambda Sigma Chapter, said. " Our main goal throughout the week is to exemplify what Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. is all about, a sisterhood committed to excellence, service and scholarship. " " The ladies of Delta Sigma Theta work extremely hard to make sure Delta Week is a success, " Teresa Baxter, former president of the sorority, said. " Planning begins in the summer, and the chapter develops a week filled with educational as well as entertaining activities for college students. " According to Haynes, Monday was one of the high points of Delta Week, represented by the elements gold, platinum and silver. Members incorporated these elements into a day devoted to hip-hop. The chap- ter planned and hosted a hip-hop fashion show featuring the genre ' s various clothing styles from the 1980s to the present. Another element featured in the fall ' s Delta Week was sodium. The sorority took the opportunity to shed light on the growing issue of high blood pres- sure and the effects of high sodium intake, providing members of the university community with free blood pressure screenings and body mass index checks. A basketball tournament was also held that eve- ning. To conclude Delta Week, the sorority hosted a panel discussion on the Misrepresentation of Black America through Hip-Hop. " Delta Week was a great success and we look forward to bring- ing the university more educational, fun and innovative Delta Weeks for years to come, " Veronique Witherspoon, chapter member, said.

The Alpha Upsilon chapter of Kappa Alpha Order held the tournament on April 26 and 27. The event, previ- ously held at the Batesville Livestock Arena, took place for the first time on campus at the Tad Smith Coliseum. Mem- bers of KA changed the venue of Fight Night to encourage more students to participate in their philanthropy. The change in location of Fight Night was a suc- cess. The tournament drew a crowd of 2,500 people, the largest to date, and raised $50,000 for MDA research. " Fight Night is something our chapter is very proud of, " Banks Shepherd, co-philanthropy chair from Jackson, said. " Every year, we are getting bigger crowds and more participants, which of course brings in more money and interest in helping out our fight against neuro- muscular diseases. " Chapters nationwide raise approximately $200,000 each year, and Ole Miss ' KA chapter contribute a large portion of this amount. The $50,000 raised through Fight Night events went directly to MDA after expenses were paid. " MDA will use the money that was donated to further fund research for the development of treatments and cures for all neuromuscular diseases and to assist those already fighting neuromuscular disease with their treatments, " Christian Barnes, co-philanthropy chair from Madison, said. Sorority involvement also helped KA reach its goal. A pledge auction was held the week before Fight Night, and sororities placed bids on pledges to represent them in the sorority-sponsored league. Fifty university men participated in Fight Night in 314 • Kappa Alpha Order JL either a sorority-sponsored, Greek-heavy, Greek-light or open league. Andy Johnson, sponsored by Delta Delta Delta, won the sorority-sponsored league. Phi Delta Theta won the Greek lightweight league, and Pi kappa Alpha won the Greek heavyweight league. Delia Delta Delia won the sorority portion of Fight Night by winning two of three categories: Tri- Delta ' s lighter won, and its ring-girl, Heather James- on, brought in the most votes from attendees to make her queen of Fight Night. Chi Omega won the third category by making the best banner for the event. Hours of planning, work and dedication keep Fight Night among the top philanthropies at Ole Miss. The men of Kappa Alpha are especially proud of KA ' s philanthropic success. " Fight Night is on the up and up, and I think it will continue to be a great success in the future, " William Denney, co-philanthropy chair from Jackson, said. Shepherd, who helped organize the event with Denney and Barnes, feels the novelty of Fight Night contributes to making it a success in raising money and attracting large crowds. " Boxing is not something many people see in this area, so it brings a unique event to Ole Miss tha t many would normally never get to see in person, " he said. " We feel like this is one of the leading Greek philanthropy events on campus and possibly the na- tion.

All the sororities participating in the event choreographed a themed dance that their pledge classes performed that night to a mix of popular songs; the competition is taken seriously as most sororities began practicing their routines soon after Bid Day. After the hosts introduced each sorority, the girls came on stage to perform their dances for the viewing pleasure of the audience. Five judges, including Associated Student Body President Drew Taggart and Colonel Reb Charles Cascio, voted on which dance they felt was the best. The ladies of Chi Omega, whose theme was " The Evolution of Justin Timberlake, " were named the winners of Encore with Delta Gamma in second and Kappa Delta in third. " Theta Encore is the best event during the fall semester, " Mae Chandler, service chair for Kappa Alpha Theta, said. " All the new pledge classes come together and dance competitively to raise money for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). Each sorority showcases their awesome dance moves to the latest tunes. It ' s so exciting to watch. " The money raised from the ticket sales were donated to CASA and the Scarlet Lawrence Akins Foundation. The goal of CASA is to provide volun- teers to ensure that children are placed in a safe and loving home. These volunteers are thoroughly trained by legal and welfare professionals because these volunteers act as these children ' s voices in the courtroom in instances of abuse, neglect and di- vorce. The Scarlet Lawrence Akins Foundation was created in honor of Akins, who was a Kappa Alpha Theta advisor, after she passed away from malig- nant melanoma.

The event took place at the Kappa Kappa Gamma house in October, and junior accounting major Katie Clore of Ft. Payne, Ala., estimates the total funds raised were $12,000. For weeks prior to the event, girls sold $5 tickets at different venues all over campus. The event was catered by Handy Andy ' s barbecue with live music downstairs. Patrons could come anytime from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to either eat and visit or just grab a to-go plate. The girls of Kappa Kappa Gamma worked very hard in promoting this important fundraiser. The girls placed a banner outside their house and an ad in the Daily Mississippian, and all of the girls wore promotional T-shirts the day of the event. " Without all of the campus ' support, Bar-B-Q for Books wouldn ' t have been as much of a success, " Amanda Stone, Kappa Kappa Gamma member, said. " Everyone that attended knew that their money was going to a great cause. We are so grateful for everyone ' s enthusiasm to help raise money for Reading is Fundamental.

Kappa Kappa Gamma • 321 ) iamond Day, Kappa Sigma ' s annual charity JL_ J baseball tournament, was a success again this year. The event benefited Angel Ranch, which is a local shelter for abused and neglected children. The men of Kappa Sigma have raised this money for Angel Ranch for the past three years during which the fraternity has donated more than $40,000 to the organization. " The first time we donated to them, they were still trying to open up, and we wanted to help them get open, " Ben Bevill, philanthropy chair, said. " Now, they just need donations to keep daily operations going, so we are trying to help them out any way possible " Diamond Day is a baseball game in which the men of Kappa Sigma play another fraternity team at Ole Miss. The fraternity has a penny drop the week before the event; in the penny drop, students put pennies in jars representing their choice for Diamond Doll. Each sorority nominates one girl to compete in the drop. Lacey Livingston of Delta Gamma member, won the title of Diamond Doll this year. The sororities also compete in a sign competition in which they put up signs like they do during football weekends. During the game, a silent auction is held in which sports memorabilia, paintings and clothes are auctioned off. A relay race and a game of musical chairs are also held during the game. Each of these activities is used to raise proceeds to donate to Angel Ranch. Kappa Sigma enjoys working with this organization and hope to help them benefit far into the future. " We love giving back to the community, " Bevill said. The men of Kappa Sigma plan to continue to strive to help and improve the community of Oxford as well as the Ole Miss campus. 322 • Kappa Sigma I ■ ' i ibers 1 1 5 ABOVE The men of Kapp.i Sigma Walker Agnew, Jr , Ben Bevilt, Cant Boone, Steven Cox, Ben Ellard.

The fraternity men use these principles to guide them in and out their fraternity life. As members, they will support and have the support of their brothers as they live these principles out. " Phi-Delt " has four major areas of concentration: intellectual development, membership, leadership and community service. Each of these areas is essential to the successes of each and every brother. The men of Phi Delta Theta use a basketball tournament called Hoops for Charity to raise money for the Sally Astor Burdine Breast Cancer foundation. During Hoops for Charity, teams of three players compete to win a grand prize of $1,000. Hoops for Charity is the fraternity ' s main philanthropy event but not the only community service activity they participate in. The men of Phi Delta Theta actively participate in local and campus wide philanthropy events. They also enjoy participating in various community service events, knowing that their hard work can only strengthen their bond of being brothers for life. 324 • Phi Delta Theta National Chapter Founded 1848 Philanthropy Hoops for Charity House Mother Eloise Rollins Number of Active Members 145 Sweetheart Anna Nance The lrn nl Phi Delia Theta: Ben Biddle, Michael Blonkvist, Malt Burdine.

Phi Delta Theta • 325 V ituated atop a hill on Fraternity Row, i y the Phi Kappa Psi house is the home to 73 individuals, who carry on the traditions of one of the oldest fraternities on campus. Founded in 1857, Phi Psi celebrated its 150 th anniversary last year as a fraternity that continues to instill in its members the ideals of education, love and service to others. While the Phi Psi brothers are involved with many philanthropic events, two annual events are the 5K Run Walk for Angel Ranch and the Chucky Mullins Courage Award Banquet. Last fall, Phi Psi held the 5K run walk with Delta Delta Delta. The event raised money to support Angel Ranch, a shelter in Oxford for neglected or sick children. The Chucky Mullins Courage Award Banquet, which is hosted each spring by Phi Psi along with the Pi Beta Phi and Phi Beta Sigma, raises money for research on muscular dystrophy. " The banquet was held at the Ole Miss practice facility last year, and it is special because it honors Chucky Mullins, a football player who was paralyzed during the Ole Miss Homecoming game against Vanderbilt in 1989, " Jonathan Jennings, Phi Psi president, said. While Mullins has since passed away, an Ole Miss player receives the Chucky Mullins Courage Award each year at the banquet. When the men of Phi Psi are not busy hosting and participating in philanthropic events, they simply like to have a good time. " We usually have a party in the fall, but we really look forward to the spring party, which occurs for three nights in either March or April, " Jennings said. A popular theme for the Phi Psi spring party in the past has been " Riverside Blues, " and the fraternity has two or three bands, whose music accentuates the theme. Phi Psi also has a formal in Vicksburg in the spring. 1 526 Phi Kappa Psi ; . - ' FAR ABOVE Lite is not tun without a little laughter and the Phi Kappa Psi boys keep things interesting for everyone in the house.

Phi Tau is one of the youngest fraternities on this campus, but their involvement is among the strongest. Each year, the men of Phi Kappa Tau host their Old Gold Week. Proceeds are raised through ticket and t-shirt sales and a pledge auction in which sorority girls bid on new members. The members then hold themed skit compe- titions on Friday night, and each sorority performs their skit for the fraternity and audience. This year, each sorority was asked to cre- ate a dance with a theme for a movie the fraternity assigned. Members of the Phi Tau pledge class, who were auctioned off, joined the sorority members in performing their skit. This year, the skit winner and the overall winner were the ladies of Pi Beta Phi. After the skit competition was over, DJ Mario performed for the audience. All proceeds of Old Gold were to benefit Paul Newman ' s Hole in the Wall, a camp for children af- fected by cancer, sickle cell anemia, HIV, AIDS and other conditions. The men of Phi Kappa Tau enjoy giving back to the community and plan to continue to do so into the future. 328 • Phi Kappa Tau OPPOSITE During the Old Gold awards ceremony, Pi Beta Phi sorority receives the trophy tor the overall winner.

Sweetheart Lauren Georgia PhiMu Phi Kappa Tau • 529 ike most sororities at Ole Miss, the ladies of Phi Mu enjoy many activities including formals, swaps, parties and community involvement. However, when these girls raise money to help their philanthropies, they manage to have a little help from the boys around campus, and it is from the finest looking ones at that. Every February, Phi Mu holds the Mr. Valen- tine Pageant, which features a selection of dashing Ole Miss men that members of the student body pick to compete. The event raises money for the Children ' s Miracle Network, specifically Le Bonheur Children ' s Hospital in Memphis. " The pageant takes weeks of planning, and it begins with the distribution of entrance packets to each fraternity and sorority on campus, " Julie Conk- in, the sorority ' s pledge trainer, said. The $100 entrance fee includes T-shirt sales, tickets and a candidate questionnaire. Each Greek organization elects a male student to participate in the pageant, and he answers the questionnaire, which asks questions such as name, previous awards on campus, the candidate ' s idea of a perfect date and how to describe his dream girl in exactly three words. On the day of the pageant, Mr. Valentine is picked after three rounds. In the first round, the con- testants walk out on stage to a specific song. They are then narrowed down to the top 10 contestants based on their initial scoring, the tickets bought and placed in their bucket and the T-shirt sales and posters com- pleted by each candidate ' s fraternity or sorority spon- sor. In the second round, the selected candidates must describe their perfect kiss, must tell which famous woman from history they would take on a date and must show their best dance move. After the judges tally their scores and the candidates are cut down to five, each one is asked why he should be the next Mr. Valentine. The judges re-tally the scores, and then the first, second and third place winners are an- nounced. " It is a great event not only for the sorority members, but for everyone who comes to watch, " Conkin said. " The boys get extremely into it and re- ally try to cater to the crowd. It is great that members of the campus can come together for a great cause in such a fun atmosphere.

Today, Pi Phi has numerous initiatives and unique partner- ships and continues to hold the tradition of supporting literacy and education for chil- dren and families. " Pi Phi ' s main focus is literacy, " Saunders Johansen, Pi Phi philanthropy chair, said. " Our members put a great effort out into the local community as well as the campus for this cause. " To support their national philanthro- py, the Mississippi Beta chapter of Pi Beta Phi participates and holds many literacy- based programs throughout the year. " Promoting literacy is something our chapter takes pride in, " President Audrey Rogers said. " Pi Phi has been devoted to literacy since its early years, and we hope to carry on that tradition. " The ladies of Pi Beta Phi implement their reading program " Champions Are Read- ers " to third grade students in Oxford as well as hold fundraisers. This year ' s first chili cook- off was to raise proceeds to donate to Links to Literacy; members sold T-shirts and tickets to raise money. Each fraternity was asked to bake their own pot of chili while guests sampled and voted for the best one. The winner this year went to the men of Sigma Nu with a close second in Phi Delta Theta. Chris and John Michael Skinner of the Skinner Boys Band provided entertainment. " I think this event was very success- ful for its first year, " Saunders said. " Everyone needs to be prepared because this event will grow in years to come.

Their vision is to set a standard of integrity, intellect and achievement for its members, host insti- tutions and the communities they live in. With their active participation in service on and off campus, the Pikes of Ole Miss do just that. Each fall, the gentlemen of Pi Kappa Alpha ask sororities to nominate members to participate in the most popular circulation on campus, the Pike calendar. Each month in the calendar is accompanied by a pic- ture of one member from each sorority. An estimated $4,000 is raised each year from the calendar ' s sales. Each year, they use this calendar as a way to raise money for the Mississippi Burned Camp Founda- tion. The foundation hosts summer camps for children and teenagers who have suffered from burn injuries. The camp allows survivors to share common experi- ences and acts as a safe haven for burn victims to be themselves without being insecure. 334 Pi Kappa Alpha Pi A, National Chapter Founded 1868 Philanthropy Pi Kappa Alp ha Calendar House Mother Martha Spragins Colors Garnet and Old Gold Sweetheart Cameron Sweeting Delta Gamma ABOVE The men oi Pt Kjppj Alpha Richard Robertson.

Pi Kappa lpha «335 - fter a week of recruitment and months of ( preparation, the University of Mississippi chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon welcomed 53 pledges in October 2007. The members of SAE pride themselves on providing a relaxed atmosphere during recruitment. It is also important to the chapter that all potential members feel included and at home during recruitment. " Year after year, quality young men are set aside [during recruitment] because they aren ' t from a popular town or don ' t have the right recommendations, " Holt Irving, SAE president, said. " SAE views everyone as a potential asset. " Like all fraternities on campus, the rush chairman compiles names, meets potential members and introduces them to the chapter; however, SAE ensures that not just the rush chairman but also every active fraternity member contributes to recruiting new members.

The sororities were given a few more days to perfect their routines. Once Thursday evening arrived, all the sororities were excited about showing off their dance routines. All nine sororities performed a seven-minute routine with their Derby Day Queen candidates carried on a float at the end. The Derby Daddy, the host of the week ' s events, then asked each of the candidates a question. After all sororities had finished, the win- ners were announced. Kappa Delta won first place in the dance competition, followed closely by Delta Gamma in second and Phi Mu in third. The candi- dates for Phi Mu and Pi Beta Phi tied for Derby Day Queen.

Shonte Brown, a former graduate of the University of Mississippi, was killed in a car accident on May 5, 2003. The Shonte Brown Scholarship was created in May by the family of Shonte to immortalize her dream of being an inspirational teacher. During her career at Ole Miss as an education major, Shonte was asked to write an essay about what inspired her to become a teacher. The writing of this essay led to her theme, " I believe children are our future. " Shonte was a teacher at Robinsville Elementary in Tunica. The scholarship is for two high school seniors who will major in education. The Shonte Brown Scholarship raises money by receiving tax refundable donations and tearing tickets during home football games at Ole Miss. Every five years, a banquet is held in her honor. fJm.rt ( jrtwMrf K ' .ii.imiriJ Ohap1 ' ,r HYjunrk ' J I ' liikiiii.hi ' npy I ' rafrnniJ ' or sfru Mascol • ' re i .(■. 1.

This scene is not just any average football game but is Charity Bowl, Sigma Nu ' s annual charity event. This year ' s game, held in Vaught-Heming- way Stadium and officiated by actual NFL referees, was against the members of Alpha Tau Omega. The proceeds from the event are always donated to help a young man suffering from a debilitating football injury. The recipient this year was Robert Cassidy, who attends Ruleville High School in Cleveland. During the fall of 2006, he was paralyzed from the chest down dur- ing a high school football game. The fraternity raised $100,000 for Cassidy in which $56,789 was received from attendance to the game alone. " It ' s an honor to be chosen to be the recipient for this huge philanthropy. Sigma Nu went all out of 342 " Sigma Nu their way to make sure I ' m taken care of, and I ' ll be forever grateful, " Cassidy said. During halftime, Coach Ed Orgeron and the Mannings, both Eli and Archie, met with Cassidy on the field. Cassidy ' s high school football team was also pres- ent to join him on the field with their support. Coach Orgeron gave a speech praising the members of Sigma Nu for spending their " time and energy with such a great event. " The Mannings presented Cassidy with a $90,000 check. They also gave him a signed New York Giants jersey and hat along with a Super Bowl hat signed by Peyton Manning. Deuce McAlister ' s Catch 22 Founda- tion gave Cassidy a $10,000 check and a signed jersey. The philanthropic event was actually started in 1989 after Ole Miss football player Chucky Mullins received an injury that paralyzed him from the neck down. The final score of the Charity Bowl was 13-7, a victory overall for the Sigma Nu chapter. The game was preceded by a sorority cheer- leading competition. All nine sororities per- formed routines filled with back flips, stunts and dancing. Amanda Hoppert, Ole Miss cheerleading coach, and Abby Furr, gradu- ate student and former Ole Miss cheerleader, judged the competition. Delta Gamma won the cheer and dance competition, with Kappa Delta in sec- ond and Phi Mu in third. Kappa Delta ' s Kris- ten Jernigan was crowned this year ' s Charity Bowl Queen. " I was so honored to be chosen as Charity Bowl Queen. Being a part of such a special event was a wonderful experience.

" The Mississippi Alpha chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon is always humbled and honored to be able to help organize and participate in the Jean Jones Cancer Awareness Run, " Ryan Belknap, chapter president, said. " It is our pleasure to sup- port such a wonderful cause, and we as a chapter look forward to participating in the event every year. " Participants gather at the Ole Miss Student Union to start the event. Walkers complete a two- mile walk around campus, and runners complete a 5R route around campus. The event, which has been held for 10 years, honors the memory of Dr. Jean Jones, a former director of the University Counseling Center who lost her battle to cancer in 1997. The event also gives an opportunity for participants to honor others affected by cancer. All proceeds go directly to the Dr. Jean Jones Memorial Scholarship Fund and the Bap- tist Hospital Cancer Institute Patient Assistance Fund of Oxford.

ARMINTIE GOES No. 5 OVERALL AND WINS WNBA ' s 2007 ROOKIE OF THE YEAR AWARD Following a season in which Price broke numerous Ole Miss records, the Chicago Sky selected the Myrtle native third overall. For Price, being drafted was an unbelievable experience, an experience she was able to share with two special people in her life, her coaches. " I promise you I couldn ' t even believe it two days after. Coach Ross came with me and Coach Ladner came, and it was just a family moment. I wish my mom was there, but I had my coaches there instead.... During the draft, I was shaking and nervous. But at the same time, coach was like ' it ' s OK your name is going to come. ' And so, when the third pick came and they called my name, the only thing I could think of to say was ' oh-me-oh-my, ' " Price said. During her rookie campaign, Price quietly put together one of the best seasons of any rookie in the league The 5-foot-9 guard averaged 7.9 points per game while also tallying six rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. Those num- bers, combined with her leadership and attitude, earned Price the title of Rookie of the Year. Never one to be selfish, Price ' s award was not only a high- light of her personal achievements, but it was one for a lot of people in Mississippi as well. " It certainly means a lot, " Price said. " It was a lot about what I was thinking about as the season was going on: This would mean a lot to Ole Miss; this would mean a lot to Oxford, Mississippi; this would mean a lot to Myrtle and the people who believed in me.

Over the past four years, major league teams have selected 25 Rebel players. Starting pitcher Will Mine and shortstop Zack Co- zart were the first two Rebs selected and the only ones on the first day of the draft. Kline was the 65th player selected, going to the Tampa Bay D evil Rays while Cozart went 14 picks later at No. 79 to the Cincinnati Reds. On the second day, Justin Henry, Craig Rodriguez and Scott Bittle were selected. Henry was the first Reb to go, going No. 501 to the Detroit Tigers, followed by Rodriguez at No. 852 to the Colorado Rockies and Bittle at No. 141 1 to the New York Yankees. TWO REBELS HEAD TO THE NFL VIA DRAFT While he was No. 49 in the program, Patrick Willis was No. 1 in Rebel Nation ' s heart. In April 2007 the num- ber 49 took on another meaning for Willis as he was selected No. 1 1 overall by the San Francisco 49ers. The 6-foot-2, 240-pound linebacker was the 17th Rebel to be selected in the first round of the NFL draft and is the highest linebacker ever selected out of Ole Miss. Now, Willis has traded in his No. 49 for a No. 52 after one of his favorite players, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. In San Francisco, Willis will not only have the pleasure of being coached by Mike Nolan but also by NFL legend Mike Singletarv. While at Ole Miss, the Bruceton, Tenn., native collected 355 total tackles over four sea- sons, leading the league his last two years He was also named the SEC ' s Defensive Player of the Year the last two years.

For the third time, Ole Miss reached a Super Regional but dropped two consecutive games to Arizona State and again failed to advance to Omaha. Ole Miss ' 40 victories in 2007 marked the first time in program history that the Rebels have had three consecutive 40- win seasons. Bianco led Ole Miss to a 16-14 mark in Southeastern Conference play in his seventh season at the helm and a third place finish in the SEC Western Division. Prior to the Super Regional, Ole Miss became the second pro- gram to host four consecutive Regionals since the NCAA changed to its current format eight years ago. The Rebels steamrolled through the 2007 Regional at Swayze Field with victories over Sam Houston State and Southern Missis- sippi. Five Ole Miss players were selected to story by TY ALLUSHUSRI the Oxford Regional All-Tournament Team, and junior pitcher Lance Lynn was named Most Valuable Player. Following the host-Regional, Ole Miss headed west and ran into a streaking Arizona State Sundevils team ranked o. 3 in the na- tion. The Sundevils proved too much for the Rebels on back-to-back nights and eliminated No. 13 Ole Miss from postseason play. The Rebels ' 16-14 mark in conference ' play equated to a No. 5 seed at the 2007 post- season SFC Tournament in Hoover, Ala. Ole Miss started hot with victories over Missis- sippi State and Tennessee en route to reaching the semi-finals with an unblemished record. The Rebels then faced Yanderbilt. the nation ' s top-ranked team, needing one victory to ad- vance to the championship. The Commodores defeated the Rebels 13-1 in the first game and 7-6 in extra innings in the second game to deny Ole Miss a repeat of its 2006 SFC cham- pionship. Leftfielder Justin llenr continued on page 152 Baseball 351 continued from page 351 was the lone Rebel selected to theSEC All-Tournament team, but the junior ' s accomplishment was a feat in itself. Henry became the first player in SEC Tournament history to be named to the All-Tournament Team for three different posi- tions: designated hitter, second base and outfield. Ole Miss enjoyed an impressive non-conference schedule that was highlighted by a trip to the Dairy Queen Class in Minneapolis and a home series against perennial national power UCLA. The Rebels finished 19-7 in non-con- ference play. The Rebels began conference play by dropping two of three games against Vanderbilt but then rallied to win the next three series in SEC play over Alabama, Auburn and Georgia. Ole Miss controlled its own destiny in the SEC West race as late as the season ' s final weekend. The Rebels needed to win two of three games against Arkansas in Fayetteville to capture the West crown but fell short. Ole Miss players collected several postseason acco- lades in 2007.

In only one season, Kennedy wiped away five years of losing and changed the culture of Ole Miss basketball. Picked dead last in the Southeastern Conference in the preseason, Kennedy ' s team, led by three senior guards, picked up a share of the SEC West title and a second round appearance in the National Invitational Tournament. The senior backcourt trio of Todd Abernethy, Bam Doyne and Clarence Sanders flourished under the up-tempo style of basketball under Kennedy. Abernethy 354 • Men ' s Basketball story by JACOB THREADGILL became the consummate point guard, leading the SEC in assists at 5.5 per game and was among the leaders in the nation in turnover to assist ratio. Doyne brought tough defense and demeanor to a position where he was undersized almost every night in SEC play. Doyne also became a more consistent player offensively. His scoring average rose from nine points in the 2005-2006 to 15 points per game in his senior season. Yet, no one excelled more under pressure than Sanders. The streaky shooting guard would pick the best moments to become white hot. Sanders found ways to score in bunches and to win ball games. Sanders averaged a team high 16 points a game, including a school record 96-made three-pointers in a season. continued on page 356 i A A d V r W THIS PAGE Bam Doyne slides past LSU ' s Tasmin Mitchell tor a split-second shot.

" We aren ' t a very good field goal-shooting team, which means we aren ' t good shooters. We get out-rebounded on par. I think defensively we have a lot of issues. We ' re last in the SEC in blocked shots. " Perhaps the most poignant statistic for Ole Miss in its first year under Kennedy is how limiting turnovers made them succeed. In the previous season under a deliberate style of offense, Ole Miss had as many turnovers as steals. With Kennedy ' s up-tempo style and the leadership of Abernethy, Ole Miss was third in the SEC with a +3.41 turnover margin, and the offense scored eight points more a game than under the final Rod Barnes-coached team. " The one stat that allows us to have won 21 games is the fact that we value the ball, " Kennedy said. " We typically don ' t turn the ball over, which allows us more possessions, and we are in a possessions game. " There will be many memories of the 2006- 2007 Rebels added to the all-time Rebel folklore, like the Feb. 11, 2007 match-up at Tad Smith Coliseum against No. 18 Alabama. A Tad Pad record crowd of 9,245 packed the gym, and the Rebels did not disappoint. Sanders scored 11 of the Rebels ' 12 second-half points and had two key second-half steals. It was also the record crowd that provided Ole Miss with an extra edge and the 75-69 that put them in a first place tie atop the SEC West. The home crowd was a factor all season as the Rebels won a school record 16 games continued from page 354 " [The seniors] really have willed this team, " Kennedy said. " We challenged them from day one, and I knew from day one that in order for this team to have a chance, it was going to have to be led by those three young men, and to their credit they had a tremendous season. " Juniors Dwayne Curtis, Kenny Williams and Jermey Parnell led the frontcourt. Despite missing the first eight games due to a fractured bone in his left foot, Curtis led the team by averaging eight rebounds and was third in scoring at 12 points a game. Williams provided the Rebels with energy and defensive presence in his first season out of junior college. Parnell became a more consistent scorer as the season progressed and could always be counted to deliver defensively in the paint and on the glass. Brian Smith and Eniel Polynice were important pieces coming off the bench for the Rebels. Smith did not play much, but when he did, it always seemed to provide a big shot or defensive stop. Polynice provided a spark and hope for the future athleticism of the program. The success for the 21-13 Rebels was truly razor thin. : SCOREBOARD- ' . Miss.

[Alabama] had a lot of guys play heavy minutes, " Kennedy said. " I thought as they got tired and we got tired, the electricity and the energy of the crowd allowed us to maybe be a step quicker. " The very next home game on Valentine ' s Day, Clarence Sanders shot an arrow into the hearts of Glen " Big Baby " Davis and the LS U Tigers. Sanders hit a long two-point jump shot from the right corner with .6 remaining in the game to give the Bebels a 71-70 victory. Sanders scored a season-high 29 points with 7 three- point shots and led the Bebels on a night where they were dominated in every category. It was senior day on March 3 when the three seniors provided the key performances to clinch a share of the SEC West division title with an 83-79 win over Auburn. Sanders scored 15 points and two baskets to key an 8-2 Ole Miss run to end the game. Bam Doyne led the Rebels with 19 points and the final four free throws to ice the game and the division title. Abernethy added 15 points and nine assists. As the Mt. Carmel, Ind., native stood on his home court for the final regular season game, Abernethy could not help but realize he had vindicated the legacy for himself and the fellow seniors. " It means so much because Bam and 1 have had three losing seasons, but we ' re not going to be remembered for that. We ' re going to be remembered for hanging up a banner, " Abernethy said. The Bebels went on to the second round for the National Invitational Tournament with a 73-59 win over Appalachian State in the first round. The Clemson Tigers ended the Bebels ' season with an 89-68 win in South Carolina. With all the records and memories the senior class of Abernethy, Doyne and Sanders left at Ole Miss, the one they may most be remembered for was starting the Andy Kennedy dynasty. " It is going to be something to reflect on [the Western Division title], " Kennedy said. " I am hopeful that as we build this thing, people are going to look back on this team as the team that turned it, and that was our challenge.

The Lady Rebels ' will to win was visible on the court, and it led them to one of the most successful seasons in the program ' s history. " Hopefully, we ' ll have the ability to step back and really appreciate what this team has done, and be able to remember all the good stuff, " Ross said. During nonconference play, the Lady Rebels were off to an inconsistent 12-4 start. The team collected wins over powerhouses like Illinois and Penn State but also saw losses to subpar teams like Texas-Arlington. De- fending national champion Maryland dismantled Ole Miss in the Junkanoo Jam Tournament in Freeport, Bahamas, while the team played close overtime games with Western Athletic Conference favorite Rice and No. 21 Rutgers. Once Southeastern Conference play entered in January, it was like a new basketball team emerged as well. The Lady Rebels rolled over the competition as they won their first five games, including victories over No. 11 and eventual SEC champs Vanderbilt and No. 5 LSU. With the national spotlight now turned toward them, Ole Miss earned the right to be the No. 24 team in the country. The ranking lasted two weeks, and the Lady Rebels were bumped up to No. 22. Traveling to No. 14 Georgia, however, brought everything to a halt as the women posted their first loss in SEC competition. Ole Miss finished out the rest of the season 4-4, falling to No. 3 Tennessee in Big Orange Country and suffering a startling loss to Au- burn. The loss to the Lady Tigers on Senior Day moved the Rebs down in seeding going into the SEC Tournament as well as brought up ques- tions of whether Ole Miss is starting to stumble or rebuild itself. Placed as the fifth-seeded team in the tour- nament, Ole Miss showed potential in Duluth, Ga., to be a strong competitor during postsea- son play. The Lady Rebels set a new tournament record of 25 steals in the opening game against the No. 12 seed Alabama.

The road did not get any easier for Ole Miss as No. 3 seed Oklahoma provided stiff competition for the team in Dayton, Ohio. Ole Miss stuck with their game plan, and Courtney Paris, along with her Sooners, could not keep up with the frantic and fast pace the Lady Rebels set. The Lady Rebels had now advanced to the Elite Eight to face SEC-foe Tennessee. The little train, though, could not make it up the mountain any longer. Tennessee had an answer for everything Ole Miss gave. The Lady Rebels eventually fell to the national champions 98-62 to finish their season with a 24-11 overall record. Although the season ended, Ole Miss still had much to celebrate. In the final USA Today ESPN Women ' s Basketball Coaches Association poll, the Lady Rebels were ranked No. 10 behind fellow SEC-rivals No.l Tennessee and No. 4 LSU. This was the first time in the program ' s history that it had a final ranking in this poll, and it was the fifth time overall Ole Miss had finished a season ranked continued from page 358 turnover-prone Crimson Tide could not handle the defensive pressure and committed 42 mistakes. With the victory over Alabama, the Lady Rebels now had to face nationally ranked LSU who had revenge on their minds. The Lady Tigers held Ole Miss to 17 first-half points, and it looked like the Lady Rebels would not be able to dig themselves out of that hole. A 13-0 run by the Red and Blue cut the Tigers ' lead to 42-41, but LSU held on to continue another day. Now all that was left for the Lady Rebels to do was wait to see if they would return to the NCAA Tournament after missing out last season with a trip to the Women ' s National Invitational Tournament. After garnering a 10-6 record against SEC competitors, most knew Ole Miss would collect a bid. On Selection Monday, the team met its fate as it was given a ticket to play as a No. 7 seed in the madness. The girls packed their bags and headed to Hartford, Conn., to take on the lOth-seeded Texas Christian University Horned Frogs. The Rebs would take the win over the Frogs after scoring 39 points off 23 TCU turnovers. Ole Miss was then set to face Maryland with whom they were already familiar. This time around Ole Miss kept doing what they did best as they forced the Terps to commit numerous turnovers. The team ' s fate turned around as Ole Miss showed Maryland an early exit and continued on to the Sweet 16 360 • Women ' s Basketball in the top 10 in any poll. The season, though, may not have heen the same without senior guard Armintie Price. " She just plays with such unbridled enthusiasm that you want to watch her play, " Ross said.

With these stats and her stellar play all four years, Price became just the second person in NCAA history to have 2,000 points; 1,000 rebounds; 400 assists and 400 steals. " The women ' s basketball program needs something to be happy about and to rejoice and something to look forward to on Thursday nights and Sundays, " Price said. " If this is what I can do to make everybody happy and just let them enjoy coming out here and watch us having fun, then I ' m willing to do that. " Price also earned such honors as Kodak easy. Easley averaged 11 points, three rebounds and just over one assist and steal per game. She was named to the 2007 SEC All-Freshmen Team and was awarded a two-time SEC Freshman of the Week. The end of the season brought a bittersweet moment to the women ' s basketball program. Four-year Head Coach Ross announced her resignation after giving her alma mater one of the most successful seasons in a decade. However, Ross left the program in good hands, naming Assistant Coach Renee Ladner as the new head coach and having her continue where the Lady Rebels left off this season.

They did not perform a dance or encourage the crowd to make some noise. They proposed. Carlos Garcia, assistant Ole Miss cheer coach, coordi- nated a group of Ole Miss cheer- leaders to hold up signs reading " Abby, will you marry me? " Garcia proposed to Abby Furr, a 22-year-old pharmacy student and former cheerleader who now serves as assistant to cheer coach Amanda Hoppart. Furr felt the proposal was appropriate and special because the cheerleaders are an impor- tant part of her life. " The cheerleaders are like a second family, " Lauren Tul- los, a 19-year-old sophomore cheerleader from Shreveport, La., said. " We talk about ev- erything from relationships to going out together to who can hit the most difficult stunt. We eat dinner together all the time and always have the option of going out with each other on the weekends. The cheerleaders are my very best friends. " Though the cheerlead- ing team provides an array of opportunities and a fun social atmosphere, cheerleaders must practice and work hard to keep their spots. " We have to maintain our skills because there ' s always a chance we could be moved up or down, " Tullos said. There are 16 couples on the cheerlead- ing squad composed of 16 guys and 16 girls. Each cheerleader must try out in April of each year through a series of cuts that last two days, accord- ing to head coach Amanda Hoppart. " Those trying out have to show skills in tumbling and stunting; they perform a dance, participate in an interview and a physical assess- ment, " Hoppart said. Once the cheerleaders make the cut, they begin a series of demanding workouts and prac- tices. During football season, the cheerleaders practice three times a week for two hours. They also have morning workouts every Monday, Wednesdaj and Friday. The team typically practices twice a week dur- ing basketball season because they spend two nights a week at the games, Hoppart said. " The schedule can be very hectic, and it ' s stress- ful at times trying to balance school, studying, sororitj and cheer, " Tullos said. " We also have extra appear- ances all the time, which can be very time consuming. " According to Tullos, the busy schedule of a cheerleader is worth the experience. " It is rewarding to say I cheer for one of the greatest schools in the SEC, " she said. " The best part of being a cheerleader is the ex- perience from the sidelines, getting to be around all of the players and coaches and getting to see the crowd from the field.

The Rebels showed promise but just never found that finishing touch. Ole Miss ended the season with a 3-9 record, including a winless 0-8 record in the South- eastern Conference. Orgeron ' s squad started the season off on the right foot with a 23-21 road victory against the Univer- sity of Memphis Tigers. Senior quarterback, Seth Ad- ams, made his first start against the Tigers and racked up 201 yards and a touchdown. The difference maker was junior cornerback, Dustin Mouzon, who picked off Memphis ' qu arterback Martin Hankins twice. Mou- zon returned one of his two interceptions 99 yards for a touchdown. The next week it was home to Vaught-Heming- way Stadium for the Rebels as the Missouri Tigers came to town. Missouri ran out to a 28-7 halftime lead. While the Rebels battled back in the second half, it was not enough as Mizzou prevailed 38-25. Ole Miss took its 1-1 record on the road when they traveled to Nashville to take on SEC opponent, Van- derbilt. The Rebels played tough for three quarters as Vandy held a mere 14-10 lead heading into the game ' s final frame. However, the Commodores out- scored the Rebels 1 7-7 in the fourth quarter, send- ing Ole Miss to its second straight loss, 31-17 The schedule did not get any easier when the Rebels returned home to take on the No.3 team in the country, the University of Florida Gators. Ole Miss hung with the Gators for most of the game, but unfortunately for the Rebels, it was the same story. Trailing just 27-24 heading into the fourth quarter, the Rebels failed to produce in the game ' s last quarter just as they had against Vanderbilt and fell 30-24 in a hard-fought battle. Riding a three-game losing streak, the Rebels headed to Athens, Ga., where they would take on their second-ranked opponent in as many weeks, the No. 15 Georgia Bulldogs. After picking up an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter, the Rebels seemingly disappeared. Georgia ran away with the contest 45-17 and sent the reeling Rebels to their fourth straight loss. Ole Miss finally snapped its four-game skid as they de- feated Louisiana Tech 24-0 in the homecoming game. Adams led the way for the Rebels, as he threw for 167 yards, including touchdown strikes to Dexter McCluster and Shay Hodge. The Rebels remained at the friendly confines of Vaught-Hemingway the following weekend, as the Ala- bama Crimson Tide traveled to Oxford. It was a back and forth affair and came down to one final, controver- sial play. After the Rebels managed to squander a a a second half lead, Adams looked to have completed a 43-yard pass to Hodge in the closing seconds, setting up the Rebels for a game-tying field goal. However, the play was reviewed, and Hodge was ruled an ineligible receiver after the referees decided Hodge stepped out of bounds before making the catch. The Rebels fell in another close one, 27-24, pushing their conference record to 0-4. After the tough loss to Alabama, the Rebels did not look to have much left in the tank the following week against Arkansas as they fell 44-8. Ole Miss looked to get back in the win column as they traveled to Auburn. Ma., to take on the Tigers. Once again, it was another wasted opportunity for the Rebels. Trailing 10-3 heading into the final quarter of play, the Rebels ' offense continued its stagnant ways. Auburn came away with the 17-3 vic- tory, and the Rebels were left with yet another losing streak. Orgeron and his crew did not let their latest los- ing streak reach three as they defeated Northwestern State, 38-31. Senior running back Ben Jarvus Green- Ellis led his team to victory as he rushed for 120 yards and a career high of three touchdowns. After getting a much needed week off, the Rebels looked to improve on their 5-7 record as the rival LSU Tigers invaded Aaught-Hemingwav Stadium. Ole Miss ' s inability to make the clutch plays was evident once again as the Rebels had chances to knock off the No. 1 team in the nation, but could not get it done. The Tigers extended their 14-7 halftime lead to 21-7 on their first possession of the second half and did not look hack. Ole Miss fell to the eventual National Champions 41-24 and remained winless in the SEC at 0-7 Orgeron and his Rebels had one final chance to pick up an SEC win when they traveled down to Football 365 Starkville to take on Mississippi State in the annual Egg Bowl. The Rebels dominated the first three quar- ters before a sellout crowd in Starkville but wilted in the final quarter. Holding a 14-0 lead heading into the fourth quarter, the Rebels simply gave the game away. The Bulldogs prevailed in a stunning fashion, 17-14 on a 48-yard field goal by Adam Carlson with 12 seconds remaining. Adams threw for 1,979 yards, 12 touchdowns and 16 interceptions on the season. Green-Ellis had his second consecutive 1,000-yard rushing season as he gained 1,137 yards and ran for six scores. Hodge led all Rebel receivers with 43 receptions, which in- cluded 593 yards and six touchdowns. Junior Ashlee Palmer led Ole Miss with 83 tackles on the season, while sophomore Greg Hardy totaled a team-high 10 sacks. Less than 24 hours after the demoralizing Egg Bowl loss, Orgeron was relieved of his coaching duties at Ole Miss. Orgeron compiled a 10-25 record during his three seasons at the helm. " Ed Orgeron will not be returning as head coach of the Ole Miss Rebels, " Ole Miss Athletic Di- rector Pete Boone announced at a press conference just one day after the loss to Mississippi State. " Chan- cellor Rhayat and I met with Coach Orgeron this morning. We thanked him for his tremendous work ethic, the energy and the commitment he gave Ole Miss. " Just as fast as Orgeron ' s tenure ended, the Houston Nutt era began. The former Arkansas coach was hired just days after Orgeron was let go. " I feel like this place can win. And I want to tell our players, and I can ' t wait to tell them this afternoon, that ' s how you spell fun, " Nutt said at his introductory press conference. " The way you spell fun is W-I-N. " Nutt has built an entirely new coaching staff, including former Rebel quarterback Rent Austin as the team ' s offensive co- ordinator. The former Razorback shot-caller seems to be fitting in just fine. " Hotty toddy, gosh al- mighty! " Nutt chanted to the crowd during his introductory press conference.

The 2006-2007 season saw a tremendous im- provement in the team ' s standing. The greatest high- lights of the year were finishing fourth in the SEC Championship and tying for fifth at the Pinehurst No. 8 Intercollegiate Tournament. The Rebels finished third at both the Palisades Collegiate, where the team shot an impressive low 54- hole score of 286-285-287-858, and at the Rio Pinar hi- story by ROBBIE TINN vitational, falling only to UT- Chattanooga and Tulsa. As far as in-state school rivalry goes, Ole Miss also defeated Southern Miss to win the " Battle at Grand Bear " held at the Grand Bear Golf Course last spring. Unfortunately, the season came to an unwilling end at the NCAA East Regional where the Rebels shot a comeback 297, but the hole was dug too deep on the opening round for even top players Rogers, Bailey and Macaulay to climb out. However, despite not being able to compete in the NCAA Finals, the team did enjoy much success in the past year. " We ' ll look back on this season as a great year, " 368 ' Men ' s Golf Ross said. " We did something we ' ve been trying to do for three years [get to NCAAs]. " The Rebels finished top 10 in 12 of their 13 competitions, an excellent outing for the season. At the helm of the team, Ross brought his own fair share of experience to the mentoring role. Ross has four Mississippi PGA Player of the Year Awards and was SEC Coach of the Year twice, a two-time Gulf States PGA Section Champion, the 1991 Gulf States PGA Match Play Champion and a four-time Mississippi PGA Chapter Champion. His highest finish in the PGA was 19th place on the challenging 1991 Ren Hogan Tour. Among Coach Ross ' players, the Scottish-born Callum Macaulay had an impressive final season, finish- ing with four top-5, five top- 10 and seven top-20 finishes. His lowest 18-hole round came at Mason Rudolph Inter- collegiate, where Macaulay shot a solid 68. This was the same course where he scored his lowest 54-hole tourna- ment, firing an amazing 211. Recently, Macaulay won his second consecutive tournament in the Amateurs and was awarded the coveted Scottish Golf Union Order Of Merit Title, propelling him to become a key member of the Scotland Amateur Senior Team. Senior Brice Bailey finished his career with one top- 10 and two top-20 finishes. Bailey shot a low 18-hole round 71 twice, the last one at Mason Rudolph Intercol- legiate, which is the same course where he scored one of his two low 54-hole tournaments and shot a 219 both times. Bailey ' s best individual finish also came at Mason Rudolph Intercollegiate, where he finished eighth in the fall of 2006. Tennessee-born Chris Rogers rounded out his Rebel career with one top-5, three top- 10 and six top-20 finishes. His best single round score came at the Univer- sity Club Intercollegiate where Rogers shot a great 66. His best 54-hole tournament score of 211 was accom- plished at Squire Creek Invitational.

Men ' s Golf 569 With a new nationally-ranked head coach, the Ole Miss women ' s golf team are confident for a successful season. photographs CONTRIBUTED In May 2007 a new era began for the women ' s golf team when new head coach Michele Drinkard announced she had only one task in mind: taking the ladies to new victorious heights. Plagued by mediocre seasons despite the amount of talent on the team, the Lady Rebels are now looking forward to firing low scores and making an impact in the ever-growing world of women ' s golf. A 2005 edition of the magazine, Golf for Women, named Drinkard in its " Top 50 Instructors " list. Drinkard has served as a teaching professional at Bent Brook Golf story by ROBBIE TINN Course and is a two-time Big South Coach of the Year, who has played on the Futures Golf Tour and the European and Australian Tours from 1988-1990. Drinkard became a PGA member in 1994. Coming from Birmingham Southern College, Drinkard joins the Rebel family after leading the BSC Panthers to their most successful season in 2006, claiming the Big South Conference Championship and a place in the NCAA Central Regional. Leading the Lady Rebels is Dori Carter, a junior 370 • Women ' s Golf Georgia native. She has two second place finishes in individual competition, a great lowest Single Round score of 69 and a solid lowest 54-hole Tournament score of 218. Carter has already earned her second letter and has recorded two top-5, four top- 1 and seven top-20 finishes. This summer, Carter tied for fourth at the Cougar Classic to kick off the season, and she also competed in the U.S. Women ' s Amateur Championship, where she showed off her skills and had a solid tournament all around. The 2006-2007 season came to an end in the SEC Championship competition, where the Rebel team shot a combined three-day 312-311-323-946. Carter tied for 18 th with a 76-71-76-223 followed by senior Katie Davidson who finished 55 th with a 75-80-86-241. Unfortunately, the Lady Rebs could not shoot a low enough round to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. However, Coach Drinkard plans to change that in the 2007-2008 season, aiming to win the tournament in Albuquerque, N.M. The Lady Rebels have a veteran team returning this season, which is a great advantage for the squad. Senior Katherine Jones; juniors Dori Carter, J.J. Flynn, Rachel Ingram and Megan Johnson; sophomores Andrea Buccilla and Sara Grantham will all return this year. Freshman Jillian Brodd is the only new recruit on the roster. ....

Their elaborate and entertaining routines make any halftime show a pivotal part of any Ole Miss sporting event. The Rebelettes are a group of 22 girls who share a love for dancing and the Ole Miss Rebels. The squad consists of a range of women from Minnesota, North Carolina and Mississippi. These women do more than just perform at football games; they add a new dimension for fans. They practice for months in order to perform their routines perfectly. They begin each year in early April when tryouts are held. Many factors are involved for one to qualify to be a Rebelette. A strong background in dance is a must. Additionally, potential team members are selected upon physical fitness, jazz skills, pom ability and technique. With more than 50 girls trying out each year, it makes this a very competitive event. With the completion of tryouts, the Rebelettes begin practicing for games as well as competitions. During football season, practice is part of the daily routine. The Rebelettes dance at each home game and travel to the Memphis and Mississippi State games. They also perform at the men ' s and women ' s basketball games. In between seasons the ladies travel to Orlando for the Universal Dance Association Nationals Competition where they compete in jazz and hip-hop competitions. Last year, the Rebelettes competed in the jazz competition and placed 17 ' " in the nation. The Rebelettes also host dance clinics for high school students in Oxford and host I a Rebelette Day for younger children. To celebrate the story £y CATHERINE ROBINSON holidays, the ladies march in the Oxford Christmas parade. To add to their already busy schedules, the ladies practice four days a week and on average workout twice a week at 6:30 a.m. They also practice with the university ' s marching band. When the Rebelettes are not busy with practices, parades, competitions and games, they volunteer and participate in community service activities. " We are a very close groups because we spend so much time together, " Kat Finger, sophomore Rebelette, said. Dancing for the Ole Miss Rebelettes is a ter- rific way to spend four years at the university. One may only put on the uniform and spend four years, but once you are a Rebelette, you will always be one. The women are all friends and share a love and bond over dance.

Rebelettes • 575 [pointa Vnshoot] photographs CONTRIBUTED story by SAMANTHA PORTER For the women of rifle team, being calm in the midst of an athletic competition is a must, and a characteristic attained by all team members as they continued dominance in their sporting event. The Lady Rebels finished in the top five in many Invitationals during the year including a fourth place finish at their own hosted tournament, the Ole Miss Invitational. Following their finish in Oxford, the Lady Rebels traveled to Memphis, Tenn. where they finished third in the Tiger Invitational. The rifle team would then begin individual team play against Murray State with a 4555-4579 loss in Murray, Ky. Losses would continue against West Virginia Army and SEC rival Kentucky. Finding a few wins against UT Martin and NC State raised the spirits of tbe Lady Rebels as they defeated the teams 4576-4463 and 4576-4432, respectively. After these key wins, the team traveled to Jacksonville, Ala., where they placed third in the Gamecock Invitational. The regular season would end in losses for the Lady Rebels against TCU, UTEP, and Nebras- ka. Postseason play continued quickly after the regular season as the Lady Rebels would host a NCAA Sectional. The team finished first, and would continue on to the Great American Rifle Conference Championships in order to host their fourth straight GARC Championships. The Rebels would place fifth in this GARC Championships. Leading the Rebels in the Championships, was senior, Shannon Wilson. During the NCAA Sectional, Wilson shot 585 in the individual air rifle category and 570 in the individual smallbore. The aggregate team score in the NCAA Sectional was 4556. The Lady Rebels have continued to be invited to post season play as host sites, and with a team of returning members this should only continue.

Four out of six competitions ended in a top- 10 finish, all in a noble bid to make the NCAA Cross Country Championships that took place at Terre Haute, Ind., in Novemer. The season kicked off with a near perfect result. The men ' s XC team finished in first place at the Ar- kansas State Invitational, while the women finished in second, falling to Arkansas-Little Rock in Team Compe- tition. The Ole Miss Rebels were led by their two Kenyan natives, Barnaba Kirui and Gabriel Ngwiri, the first winning the men ' s race coming in at 19:42.65. Ngwiri came in second at 20:20.29, Kyle Lewis fourth at 20:20.98, and Seth Conerly thirteenth at 21:56.35 This was a great way to start the season, said Ole Miss head coach Joe Walker, " We had great indi- vidual performances that combined for a great team effort. To claim five of the top 15 times says a lot about the depth of our team. " The rest of the season proved just as solid.

On the individual level, Kirui dominated once again, winning the 8k race in a time of 23:53.24, the first Individual Cross Country Champion for Ole Miss in fourteen years, since Pablo Sierra in 1992. " 1 feel so great, " said Kirui after the ompetition. " If there ' s one thing I ' ve longed ' or, it ' s to hear that somebody from Ole Miss ins the SEC because I find that to be a pride br my school, just winning and being fastest. I ' ve always been telling my teammates that is one thing I long for is to hear the words " and the winner from Ole Miss, ' and I ' m glad I heard that today. " Coach Walker could not have been hap- pier for his athlete prodigy. " I am so proud of Barnabas. I think we were the only people who thought he had a chance, but he came here to win and that ' s what he did. " At the SEC Championships, the best individual finish by a female cross country Rebel athlete was Samantha Mazer, who came in 70th at 22:54.35. The Rebel women ' s team, however, came in at twelfth with 568 points, a good try by the Lady Rebs. The NCAA Cross Country South Regional was next, and once again, to no one ' s surprise, Barnabas Kirui reigned victorious. " This is really a dream come true, " Kirui said upon winning the Regional. Kirui joins the only other Rebel runners to advance to the NCAA Championships, Pablo Seria (1992) and Bernard Kuria (1997), finshing at beautiful time of 30:43.1, far ahead of competitors. " Barnabas ran away from a star-studded field, " said Rebel head coach Joe Walker. " This was prob- ably his strongest run of the year. He ran in front pack at the start of race and then pulled away. Nobody else responded and he ran alone. " Kirui not only won the 2006 SEC Cross Coun- try Championship, but he also went on to fulfill his winning destiny at Terre Haute, hid., at the NCAA Regional Cross Country Championship, where he won the title and was named the SEC Cross Countn Run- ner and Freshman of the year.

Cross Countn • 375 [kickc r 66 escore] photographs by JENNIFER MICHAELS Facing a tough season, the Lady Rebels soccer team fell short of a winning season when the Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Rebels in the SEC Tournament. Although, the season ended earlier than hoped, the Rebels still continued one important streak, advancing to their 1 1th straight SEC Tournament appearance. Under the coaching of Steve Holeman, the Rebels have gained SEC recognition, and two Lady Rebels stood out among other SEC competitors this year. Sophomore Danielle Johnson was selected All- SEC first team, and teammate Amy Bayles was chosen All-SEC second team. Leading the team in most statistics, the Baton Rouge, La. native, Johnson, was chosen by her teammates as the Most Valuable Player, as well as Defen- story by SAMANTHA PORTER sive Most Valuable Player. Accordingly, the Offensive Most Valuable Player was awarded to Bayles, a Florence, Ala. native. Johnson and Bayles helped lead the team to a 8-9-5 overall record, and third place finish in the SEC West with a 4-4-3 conference record. The Lady Rebels saw key wins against Auburn, Alabama, and Mississippi State. The Lady Rebels raced through non-conference play at the beginning of the season beating Southern Miss 4-0 in Hattiesburg. After beating the Golden Eagles, the team traveled to Birmingham, Ala. where they suffered their first loss against the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

The Lady Rebels, whose lineup featured seven freshmen and one sophomore when they opened the season against No. 11 Michigan, had no easy task ahead of them. To bring the young squad up to speed for Southeastern Conference play, head coach Missy Dickerson felt the Lady Rebels needed to face the best competition available. Throughout much of the season, confidence and young mistakes plagued the team. " We ' ve had three tough weeks of teams that 1 scheduled because I wanted those kids to see the best, so down the road when it got time for us to head into SEC play, they ' ll have seen the best and won ' t have to worry about ' Oh my God, we ' re facing so- and-so, ' and we ' re prepared, " Dickerson said prior to the team ' s home opener in the Red and Blue Classic. " They shouldn ' t fear anybody because they know they can play with the Arizona States and they can play with the Michi- gans and they can play with the Baylors and they can play with the [Louisiana-jLafayettes. They know that they can play with those teams. They lose 2-1 against the No. 2 ranked team in the country; that ' s, to me, pretty impressive, but then you l ose to Mis- sissippi Valley State. " Through the early season, the Lady Rebels were a combined 8-13, heading into SEC play. As if playing six ranked opponents in the first three weekends of the season was not tough enough, Ole Miss opened conference play at home against No. 9 LSU and No. 1 Tennes- see. Dickerson ' s tough nonconference schedule seemed to pay dividends early as the Lady Rebels took wins from both LSU and Tennessee, dropping the Tigers in the first game of their three- game series 2-1 and earning a 5-4 victory in the second game of the team ' s double header against the visiting Vols. The following weekend, the team took two of three from Auburn on the road before returning home to split a double-head- er against Southeast Missouri State to give the Lady Rebs a 13-18 overall record. After splitting the double-header with Southeast Missouri State, the Lady Rebels went 1-3 over the next four games and were once again able to defeat a ranked opponent at home, hosting the No. 19 Florida Gators. In game one the Rebels were able to hold on to win a 2-1 affair with the Gators in 10 innings, before beating the visitors 4-2 in the second game of the double-header. Florida would not be 378- Softball swept, however, taking the third game of the series. " The kids came out and really played hard and kept fighting all the way through, each game, eaeh seven innings, " Diekerson said following the series with Florida. " It was a nice thing to see consider- ing we ' d heen struggling lately. " The Lady Rehels used their ictorj as momentum and took five of the next eight games against Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Arkansas and Mississippi Valley State. Unfortunately for the Rehels, their luck began to dwindle from there, dropping eight of their final 1 I regular season games to elose out the regular season. However, w ith a win in the team ' s final series of the season at South Carolina, they recorded a program best w ith an 1 1th eonferenee win of the season. The final loss of the season to No. 1 Tennessee in the SEC Tournament not only meant the end of the 2007 season for the Lady Rebels, but for seniors Vanessa Gibbs and do-it-all Mary Jane Callahan, it also meant the last time they would play as Ole Miss Rebels. Callahan, who has been a very important part of the Rebels both in the field and in the pitcher ' s circle, left the Rebels in a better plaee than when she came to Oxford as a freshman. In 2004, the Lad Rebels were 15-37 with 8-21 in eonferenee play. Fast-forward to 2007 and the Lady Rebels finished the season with a 24-34 record, winning 1 1 eonferenee games. As a senior, Callahan was second on the team with a .308 batting average, hitting three home runs and 23 RRI. In the pitcher ' s cirele, she was 8-8 with a team-best 2.30 ERA, striking out 92 batters in 106.2 innings of work. Callahan ' s eight wins were also enough to make her the Rebels all-time leader in wins, tallying 42 wins for her career and passing Amanda Fine ' s previous record of 40 wins. Gibbs, who hails from Seminary, hit .184 on the year and was fourth on the team with three stolen bases in four attempts. At the end of the season, the SEC recognized two Lady Rebels. Both shortstop Ashley Dowdy and third baseman Lauren Grill were named to the SEC ' s All-Freshman Team. Grill, who was a high school All-American and Oregon Player of the Year out of high school, led the Lady Rebs offense with a .325 batting average and a .639 slugging percentage, tal- lying 14 home runs and 31 RBI. Grill ' s 14 round-trippers were good enough for second most in a season, only one behind DeDe Justice. Dowdy, who hails from Olive Branch, was a .270 hitter with four home runs and 19 RBI and started every game at shortstop. As a team, the Lady Rebs set several records including home runs at 37 and conference wins at II. :•• SCOREBOARD ••• ! Michigan [L] 1-5 OVERALL 24-54 I Houston [L] 2-4 S.E.

Softball -579 Head Coach Billy Chadwick and the Ole Miss men ' s tennis team knew defending their home court would prove instrumental in their having a successful season. They could not have defended the Palmer Salloum Tennis Center any better as they ended the season with a perfect 14-0 on the way to an overall record of 24-5. The Rebels finished another stellar season ranked No. 7 in the nation, winning their sixth straight Southeastern Conference Western Division title and finishing second in the SEC to the University of Georgia. They made it to the " Sweet Sixteen " of the NCAA Championships. Three members of the 2006-07 Rebel Netters — Erling Tveit, Robbye Poole and Eric Claesson — were named Ail- Americans. Claesson finished an impressive four-year career at Ole Miss by posting an 1 1-8 singles record, teaming up with Tveit on the doubles courts. This duo posted a 17-7 record. " Eric had two SEC Championships under his belt, four SEC West Championships and was a two-year All- American, " Chadwick said. " He was really the heart and soul of the team. He had that fighting spirit, that never-die attitude and really had a great career here at Ole Miss. " Tveit, the staple at the No. 1 singles spot, finished the spring season with an impressive 16-9 overall record, including a SEC record of 6-5. Day in and day out, Tveit was matched up against the opposing team ' s best player. Junior Robbye Poole immensely improved his play from his first season as a Rebel. Poole transferred to Ole Miss from Clemson after his freshman season and has been a valuable addition to the Rebels ever since. Besides earning Ail-American honors during his junior season, Poole finished with a 19-5 singles record. On the doubles courts, Poole often paired with fellow junior Jakob Klaeson, where they combined for a 6-4 record. " He stepped it up, and he stepped it up at the right time, " Chadwick said. " He played great at the NCAA championships in both the team championships as well as the individual. He was named an Ail-American, and I was really proud of Robbye for pushing it and moving to the next level. " Newcomers Jonas Berg and Kalle No rberg were both dependable ABOVE The 2007 Ole Miss men ' s tennis team Fredrik Aarum, Jonas Berg, Eric Claesson, Jakob Klaeson, Kalle Norberg, Robbye Poole, Chris Rea, Bram ten Berge, Erling Tveit and Matthias Wellermann. and solid all year, and Chadwick knew he could count on the two newcomers whenever he needed points. Berg ended his year with a stellar 20-2 singles record. Norberg, his doubles partner for part of the year, was not far behind as he put up a 22-3 record on the singles court. " When you look at their record, those guys hardly ever lost, " Chadwick said of his young players. " They were so instrumental in our success. We felt like we couldn ' t be beat at the bottom of the lineup, and that was one of the reasons we were able to make it to the NCAA final 16. " Klaeson, usually playing No. 6 singles, finished with an 11-3 record. Matthias Wellermann, who battled back injuries all season, ended the year with a 4-8 record on the singles courts. Junior Chris Rea was a perfect 6-0 in singles for the year. Fredrik Aarum and Bram ten Berge, both suffering from injuries, did not see any action on the court. Still, it was another great year for the Rebels. They continued their SEC West dominance, ranked in the nation ' s top 10 all season and reached the NCAA Sweet Sixteen. • SCOREBOARD 380 Men ' s Tennis OVERALL 24-5 Murray State [W] 7-0 Tennessee Tech [W] 7-0 Arkansas-Little Rock [W] 6-1 Troy [W] 7-0 UAB [W] 7-0 Mississippi State [W]4-0 Northwestern [W] 5-2 Boise State [W] 4-0 Virginia [L] 3-4 Pepperdine [W] 4-2 Memphis [W] 7-0 Florida [W] 5-2 South Carolina [W]4-0 Alabama [L] 3-4 Auburn [W]6-l West Florida [W] 4-1 Vanderbilt [W]5-2 Kentucky [W]4-0 LSU [W]4-3 Arkansas [W] 6-1 Tennessee [W] 4-3 Georgia [L] 2-5 Mississippi State [W]6-l SEC TOURNAMENT Auburn [W] 4-0 Florida [W] 4-2 Georgia [L] 0-4 NCAA TOURNAMENT Jacksonville St. [W] 4-0 South Alabama [W] 4-1 Illinois- Final 16 [L] 3-4 f [servinea 7ace] With a year of All-Americans and fantastic records, the Ole Miss men ' s tennis team celebrated a super Sweet Sixteen. photographs by JOSEPH WARNER story by THOMAS MCKEE ABOVE Jakob Klaeson balances himself while following through on his famed forehand to return the ba RIGHT Bram ten Berge channels all of his energy and force into a backhand return.

RIGHT Mimi Renaudin gracefully prepares to return the ball over the net. 382 Women ' s Tennis For the Ole Miss Lady Netters, the 2007 campaign was somewhat of a bitter- sweet one. Collectively, the team struggled, mostly from injuries plaguing the team all season long. They finished up with a 5-18 overall record, including a 1-10 record in the Southeastern Conference. " It was just one of those things where we had so many injuries, " Head Coach Mark Beyers said. " You can ' t patch that many holes; it ' s just impossible for any team. I don ' t care who you are. If you lose as many players as we lost, you just can ' t fill that. Especially in this confer- ence, it ' s hard enough as it is. " However, senior Ilona Somers concluded her impressive career at Ole Miss on a positive note despite her team ' s struggles. Somers collected an overall sin- gles record of 14-8 with an SEC record of 6-5. " I think Ilona Somers had a great year. She finished 37th in the country and had a winning record at No. 1 singles in the SEC, " Beyers said. " It ' s just a shame from a number standpoint we had so many injuries, and we couldn ' t take ad- vantage of her playing so well. " Beyers was really impressed with the fight and determination Somers showed, considering all the team ' s obsta- cles around her. " With all that was going on, it would have been easy for her to say who cares, " Beyers said. " But she had some personal goals that she wanted to achieve, and one of those was to make the NCAA tournament, which she hadn ' t done be- fore. " While Somers held the No. 1 spot the entire season, Nika Koukhartchouk and Kseniia Tokarieva split time playing at No. 2 singles. Koukhartchouk complet- ed her season with a 6-16 record. The ju- nior from Russia finished 1-11 in the SEC. Tokarieva, a sophomore from Ukraine, compiled a 7-16 overall record with a SEC record of 2-9. Towards the bottom of their line- up, the Lady Netters received a valuable contribution from freshman Soledad Pod- lipnik. Podlipnik, a native of Chile, started playing for the Rebels as soon as she ar- rived in the United States. She ended the year with a 9-13 singles record, including RIGHT The 2007 Ole Miss women ' s tennis team Emily Ladyman, Soledad Podlipnik, Carlin Cochran, Nika Koukhartchouk, Mimi Renaudin, Ilona Somers, Preethi Subramanian, Kseniia Tokarieva and Elizabeth Wood. a 2-9 SEC record. Carlin Cochran was one of the many players on the Lady Netters who was battling injuries throughout the year. Yet, she was able to play through them for almost every match, ending with a 5-17 singles record. Preethi Subramanian and Eliza- beth Wood also battled injuries but still participated in some matches. Subrama- nian missed the first half of the season, returning for most of SEC play. She ended her short campaign with a 1-9 record. Wood, a freshman who was supposed to make a major impact, was limited to three matches all year long because of her inju- ries. Unfortunately for Beyers, Mimi Renaudin, who was a key member of the team, suffered injuries that were too seri- ous for her to play. " If you have one kid out, you can make some adjustments, " Beyers said. " But it ' s one of those things where it seems like when it rains, it pours. " Although the Rebels were faced with so much adversity during the season, they continued to work hard and improve as the season went on. " Towards the end we got a little bit healthier and picked up that win against Mississippi State, but again it was just a little too late, " Beyers said. " They worked hard. It wasn ' t the effort level. As a coach, that ' s all you can ask for at that point.

The men ' s track and field team tied for 12 th in the nation, and the Lady Rebels finished in a tie for 27 th , both incredible achievements for the University. Heading up the track and field is head coach of 35 years, Joe Walker. One of the youngest collegiate coaches of all time, Walker has gone on to share his sporting expertise with every recruit under him. His track record that is proved by the amount of NCAA champions he has produced throughout his career. Walker has won five SEC Men ' s Team Championships and finished twice in the top- 10 range in the NCAA Men ' s Indoor Championship. An Oxford native, Walker is here to stay and is ready as 384 • Track and Field ever to see his Rebel squad win every NCAA title possible. For only the 10 th time in school history, track and field prodigy Barnabas Kirui of Kenya won the national title when he took the 3,000-meter steeplechase victory at the NCAA Outdoor Championship. Renyata Coleman, Brittney Reese and John Yarbrough were not far behind Kirui, also achieving All-American honors at the championship. By the end of the season, six All-American selections were awarded to Ole Miss, who dominated almost every competition the NCAA threw at them. Anyone familiar with university athletics has certainly heard of the leading track and field athlete, Barnabas Kirui. Only a sophomore during his 2006-2007 season, Kirui came on with what looked like a date with destiny, his destiny being to win every title in which he competed. He has already become the fourth runner in history to win all three distance races at SEC meets, has been awarded the Commissioner ' s Trophy for most points scored at a meet, and was named SEC Runner of the Year in 2007. At the NCAA Outdoor Championship, Kirui finished with an immaculate time of 8:20.36, literally leaving his competitors in the dust. This time, he broke his own school record of 8:33.59, landing him the 12 th fastest time spot in the world. But that ' s not all. Kirui has also been named the South Regional Runner of the Year, selected to the first team Academic All-American by ESPN The Magazine and named the Co-Scholar Athlete of the Year by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

Marlee Kevech holds the outdoor school record for Javelin, which also landed her on the NCAA All-Mid-East Team. Davina Orieukwu holds both the indoor school record for weight and the outdoor school record for shot put. John Yarbrough took NCAA Outdoor All-American for 110-meter hurdles, and Kim Mulkey and Cachet Murray both joined the NCAA All-Mid-East Team for 4x 100 relay. This summer, Reese represented the United States at the IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Japan, in August. She finished eighth at track and field on the world level. " This is a very big accomplishment for Brittney, " Walker said. " The world championships are a preview for the Olympics. This time next year, she could be competing for a chance to represent the USA at the Olympics. This is a culmination of a great season for her. " Track and Field • 385 [bumpsefspi The Lady Rebels were full of surprises this year with a victory over Tennessee after 13 years of losing to them. photographs by JOSEPH WARNER Over the course of the last four years, Ole Miss ' gradu- ating seniors have helped transform the Ole Miss volleyball program from cellar dwellers into legit threats for the confer- ence crown. Last year the Ole Miss volleyball team surprised many throughout the country with their success, making the school ' s first ever NCAA Tournament appearance. This season the Lady Rebels built on last season ' s suc- cess, and in front of record crowds at the Gillom Sports Com- plex made their way to an encore appearance in the big dance. Although they had made momentous strides the year before, making their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance, Ole Miss was predicted to finish sixth in the conference head- ing into the 2007 season. However, the Lady Rebels must not have been pay- ing attention to pre-season polls because over the course of the season they posted a school-best 14-6 conference record, sweeping six conference foes. Their record was good enough for second in the SEC West, and third overall in the conference. story by PATRICK OCHS The season started off with an eye opening 3-2 victory over then-No. 20 Missouri in the Magnolia Invitational. The Rebs would go on to win 10 of their first 11 matches heading into conference play. Even though the Rebels breezed through their non- conference schedule, their SEC schedule didn ' t begin as smoothly. A victory at Arkansas was sandwiched between 0-3 losses against ranked LSU and Florida teams. However, the Rebels got going in the right di- rection following their defeat to the Gators, reeling off six wins over the next seven matches against South Carolina, Auburn, Mississipi State, Alabama, Kentucky and Tennessee. Their 3-2 victory over the Lady Vols on October 14 in Knoxville marked Ole Miss ' first victory over Tennessee since 1994. After dropping their second match to No. 25 LSU, the Rebels once again got hot, winning eight of their final 10 matches of the season en route to a 25-8 overall record and their second-strait NCAA Tournament appearance. 386 • Volleyball Unfortunately lor the Rebels, the were once again bounced from the tournament in the firsl round, this time Falling ietim to B I in the Seattle bracket. Follow ing the season several Rebels were hon- ored for their accomplishments on the court Junior setter Raehel Kieckhaefer was named to the All-SEC second team, freshman outside bitter Jackie Jones was named to the All-SEC freshman team, and head coach Joe Getzin was named the SEC ' s Coach of the Year for a second straight season. Kieckhaefer was also named an C Ul-Re- gion honorable mention. As has been the case over the last few ' years, the program will lose several critical players due to graduation. Middle blocker Lauren Moffett, outside hitter Katie Kramer and libero Tara Langley are all graduat- ing seniors who have left their individual marks not only on the court, but in the record books as well. Moffett wreaked havoc on opposing team ' s at- tacks, leading the team in blocking assists (89) and total blocks (113). Kramer is ninth all-time in career kills w ith 1,1 38, and is only the 12th player to accumulate 1,000 kills. Langley made her mark on the back row for the Rebels, amassing 626 digs on the season, and 1.377 over her career, both Ole Miss records. Not only did Langley impact Ole Miss ' record books, but she inked her name in the SEC ' s as well, becoming only the fourth player to have 600-plus digs in a season. Langley also excelled in the classroom. The Lou- isville native was one of only eight athletes to receive the Academic Momentum Award. Also leaving the team is converted outside hitter Nicole Mahan and setter Jessica Dalke. Mahan, who began her career on the back row, is graduating early. A Former high school Ail-American, Dalke did not make the trip to Seattle for the NCAA Tournament due to a violation of team rules, and will not return next season. Although for the third-strait year the Rebels lose impact players, Getzin has stocked the proverbial cupboard with enough young talent that another trip to the big dance should not be too much of a surprise to anyone. aboard oLOl t I Missouri [W] 3-2 OVERALL Mississippi St. 24-25 ; rw] 3-i ; I Arkansas [W] 3-2 Alabama [W] 3-1 ; Jacksonville [W] 3-0 Kentucky [W] 3-2 : Sacramento [W] 3-2 Tennessee [W] 3-2 : Syracuse [W] 3-0 LSU [L] i-3 : Akron |w J 3-0 Arkansas [W] 3-0 ; !

" -Eleanor Roosevelt For me, my dream of yearbook started with my first Brandon yearbook in seventh grade. I ago- nized, even memorized, over details of every yearbook I owned until I was finally granted the opportunity to serve on the annual staff at Brandon. From there, I began to fulfill my dream and passion of completing a yearbook I could call my own. Who would have thought I would one day become the Editor-in-Chief of such a renowned book as The Ole Miss? When that day came my emotions were over- whelming, and I had no idea what this year would entail. Man, has it been a journey, one that has chal- lenged me more than any in my life, even more than getting through those darn intermediate accounting classes. This year has been full of so many struggles, most of which were unpreventable, and for that I have no one to blame but many people to thank. First of all, to my five editors: Thank you! I do not know if that says enough, but I hope it is a start. Ashley, you have captured the theme with your designs, but more importantly you have led an amaz- ing staff without ever restricting their creativity. You fulfilled my every hope for the design of this book. Brock, this year ' s copy is the best ever. Thank you for coming through in the end. Joseph, wow! When were you not running around taking pictures or find- ing someone to last minute? Thank you! Barrett, I am so glad you came back for one more year. Thanks to you, this book represents the university as a whole, diverse group of students through amazing coverage and ideas. Finally, Chris, what a year we have shared together. Thank you for being there for me. Thank you for listening to my endless stories. Lastly, thank you for helping me get this book put together. I could always count on you to be there when I couldn ' t. You did an amazing job. Congratulations on a job well done, guys. Even with the help of these five leaders, this hook could not have been a finished product without the help of the entire staff. Thank you to the manag- ing team and the writers, the photographers and the designers. All of you have helped to create an amaz- ing hook, and you should be so proud of your work. Justin, your designs will set this book apart, and I can not wait to see your work in the future. This position would have never been put into my hands if it had not been for my fearless advis- ers: Traci, Ralph and Darcy. Thank you for entrust- ing me with this publication. I can only hope I, and this book, have lived up to your expectations. Darcy, thank you for being a lending ear whether I was com- plaining about yearbook, praising yearbook or just telling stories. This year has been a struggle due to many things, and at the beginning of the year when we switched publishers, I thought it would bean uphill battle. Man, was I wrong. JoAnne, Paul and Stephen, you have made this a very easy transition. I only hope we have been as great of a customer. Stephen, you gave 1 10% everyday and helped me get through the " server battle. " It was one heck of a struggle. Thank you! Many pages would have never come together without the contributions of a select few. To those people 1 owe a huge thank you: Mangiante Photogra- phy, Athletic Media Relations, Imaging Services, Dean of Students office, Carolyn Stanton, Robert Khayat and Greek and student organizations. My experience at Ole Miss would not be the same without all the effort from the administration, professors, and staff of this " great American public university. " All of my accounting professors, you have truly enlisted me with the skills needed to succeed in the future. I hope to be a great representation of your teachings, and I am sorry for my lack of time manage- ment during my yearbook reign. Chancellor Khayat, you have set such an example for me this year. I am so fortunate to have met you, and I am truly thankful for the help you have afforded the yearbook staff and myself with this year. Finally to the teachers at my high school who have touched me, thank you, espe- cially Mrs. Odom and Mr. Harden. You have helped me to get me to where I am today. Man it ' s over. I never thought I could say those words soon enough nor did my closest friends. Guess what, guys? I ' m back!! Darby, you have been great this year, whether it was yearbook drama or regular drama, you were always the friend I needed you to be. I will miss you next year. Please visit this beautiful town and me often. Audrey, Jenzy, Katie and Erika, I owe all of you a big thanks as well for be- ing my biggest supporters. Finally, I would have never believed in myself if it was not for my truly amazing family for raising me this way. Mom, Dad, Lily Danielle, INuna and Granddaddy, you have given me so much and taught me so much. It is because of you that I am where I am today. I hope that I have made you proud. Mom, you are my rock! You have helped me through so many obstacles, and you were what kept me going when I could not see an end. Thanks to you I have finished this book. I love you all beyond words. My hope for the student body and those that are reading my message is that you will love this book as much as me. I poured my heart into it, and I hope you can see it. I hope it is a memory book for you for years to come. Most of all, I hope it will help you live on Prank Everett ' s words. ... " but one never graduates from Ole Miss.

Through the countless hours of tedious : work, my staff stuck with me and got the job done. Like many of the other books, we had our own catastrophe, but we all pulled together as a family and prevailed. This year was stressful and frustrating but it was also fun and entertaining. Countless inside jokes to remember.... Samantha, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to be your Managing Editor. It was an experience I will never forget. You have an amazing personality and an incredible work ethic. Thank you for showing us what it means to be a great leader. We faced many obstacles, and you held us together. Your vision of this book is one that will always be remembered. Brock, I don ' t know what the office would have been like without your crazy wit. Listening to you and Justin feed off each other all the time made the office way more entertaining. Ashley, thanks for always taking the time to take a coffee break with Josh, Elizabeth and myself. The design of this book is extraordinary and would not have been the same without the hard work of you and your staff. Joseph, a special thanks to you and your staff for always being there when we had to schedule a picture. Thank you for working closely with the managing staff and dealing with all the weird scheduling. I would really like to thank those on my staff. Yeah... we may have had a bunch of tedious things to do, but I think that we all enjoyed each other ' s company. I would of gone crazy without the help of Emily Blackwell, Elizabeth Sanders, Josh Herrington and Natalie Montalvo. Thank you so much for making this experience a fun one. I would also like to apologize for asking the same random questions every single time I saw y ' all. I just have a bad memory. I love all y ' all and appreciate everyone more than you will ever know. Peace, Chris Kurtz, Managing Editor This year has been fantastic! I have been so lucky to be surrounded by such a great, fun group of hardworking people. 1 knew we had something special from the start because in St. Louis we were able to make the switch from prank calling friends to coming up with an amazing theme that we have worked hard to carry through this book. I want to thank Samantha for being such a great leader and staying calm under pressure (and for knowing the best people to prank call, ha). I was surrounded b a great group of editors in Chris, Ashley and Joseph; we had so many laughs. Vail made work fun and not seem like work at all! Lastly, I want to thank my amazing staff: Julie, Lauren, Mary Claire, Heather, katherinc. Janna, Haley, Alex, Jermaine and Rachael. bother 1 was sending you a Facebook message to ask you to write a last minute story or calling you to come in late to copy edit, all of you always did what I asked and did it quickly. I could not have dreamed up a better staff! Thank you for all your hard work because without your work my job would have been impossible. Also, I want to give a special shout out to Catherine Robinson for coming through in the very end and transforming herself into a story-writing machine! Sincerely, Brock Herrington, Copy Editor Coming from writing for the daily newspaper to editing for The Ole Miss yearbook was a bigger transition than I expected and one that I ' m glad I made in my final year at Ole Miss. I ' m thankful that I got to experience seeing how The Ole Miss is put together, and by many dedicated people, I may add. Samantha, you have done a commendable job in being the leader of such a talented staff. I would like to especially thank Brock for being a great copy editor. Your organization made everything easier for Ratherine and me. And Katherine, thank you for all your dedication and diligence in editing the stories. Also, I would li ke to thank all the writers. Without you, we copy editors would have no responsibility in the making of this great book. I hope everyone enjoys it and cherishes it as a souvenir of their college years. Thanks, Heather Berry, Copy Assistant It ' s been a long and a very bumpy ride this year, but we stuck it out to make this book possible, even when we thought it wasn ' t going to happen. It was an incredible challenge for me, but it was, hands down, the most fun I have ever had. I was given a chance to work long, personal hours on a book for such a great university that is so seeped in tradition and I ran with it. Even amidst all the whining, cross-eyed complaints, we got it done. I want to start off by thanking Samantha Porter, the mighty editor-in-chief. You gave me a chance to do this, no questions asked, and I can never thank you enough for it. We worked incredibly hard, and it has finally paid off. Chris, my lovely managing editor. I ' ll never forget solo cups on the Metro in St. Louis. Classic. Oh! And for all the coffee breaks. Joseph. you took beautiful pictures, and 1 loved all those text messages when nobody was looking. We would make a great little gossip team, you and I. Tc t me! Brock, yes, I have a dollar you can borrow, so you can get a drink. Staff 403 To my staff, Justin, Catherine Ann, Allison, Lauren and Tamzen, thank you so much for the hard work you have done, it really shows. All of you came through in the times of need and you should be so proud of this. Justin, you ' re so disgustingly talented it makes me sick, but 1 love you for it. And for those Soulja Boy routines whenever we worked really late. Catherine Ann, you ' re too sweet for words. Allison, the great tardy find, you did beautiful work. Lauren, we ' ll always have St. Louis and Tamzen, you did a great job. Whenever I needed you, you were there. Traci and Darcy you were always there for us and for me specifically. Thanks could never be enough. Thank you. Much love, Ashley Dees, Design Editor It ' s hard to believe this is my fourth book I have had a privilege of being a part of. I would first and foremost like to thank Samantha Porter whose hard work has made this book what it is. Samantha, it has been an honor to be on your yearbook staff and to have you as a friend. Chris and the managing team, without y ' all us photographers would have been scrambling to set up events and shoot them. Ashley and the design team, thank y ' all for designing such great layouts for the book. Brock and the writing team, the stories this year have been amazing. Barrett, thanks for leading a great team that helped come up with so many of the ideas featured in the book. Last but not least, I would like to thank my dedicated staff Ryan, Jennifer, Mi ' chel and Madison. Y ' all have been a great staff whose pictures are the best I have seen in a yearbook. This book has been one great odyssey, and I ' m jl .. proud to be of i Thanks, Joseph Warner, Photo Editor I can ' t believe it ' s over so soon. I just can ' t believe this year is coming to a close. So many long nights spent at the SMC but every single night held something crazy in store for me: Laughing hysterically during editors ' meetings about Samantha. Listening to the more than numerous jokes Brock told. Dance parties late at night with Ashley, Chris and Samantha. The trouble Ashley and I had with just about every design element (mainly the Berthold Walbaum Book font .. clearly the devil). Enduring endless hours of server trouble and finding ways to make use of the free time. Constantly spending cjuarters in the candy machine in the conference room. Thinking how hilarious Emily Blackwell really is. Trips to Sonic. Getting my idea for the staff picture at Holli ' s Sweet Tooth shot way down. Making conference calls with Stephen from Canada. These are all things that I ' ll remember for a very long time. I thank everyone who helped out with this book, and I wish luck to everyone who will work on this book in the future. For all those who are reading this, thank you for actually taking the time to read about all the hard work the sta ff put into this 416-masterpiece (granted, that ' s just my opinion at least). Hopefully, you (the reader) are looking at this yearbook with the awe we intended. It ' s been a long, long eight months of work, but it has been worth every hour to get to see the amazing finished product. Much love.

Dewees Jr., 65, executive director of Alumni Affairs at the University of Mississippi from 1990 to 2004, lost his battle with cancer on January 25, 2008. Dewees joined UM ' s Alumni Affairs staff at the Medical Center in 1976, and then moved to the Oxford campus a year- and-a-half later to work with various alumni chapters on alumni activities and fundraising. During his early tenure, chapters were developed for each school and college, as were " order " programs to provide them with financial support. While Dewees was executive director, the association renovated its alumni center, celebrated its 150th anniversary and broadcast its first alumni meeting nationally live via satellite from the Oxford campus.. Many of the association ' s accomplish- ments were realized under his 1 eadership, but the one he was most proud of was its inclusive- ness. " Herb Dewees devoted most of his adult life to the univer- sity and our Alumni Association, " said Chancellor Robert Khayat. " He and his wife Dixie are loved and respected by the people of Ole Miss. " Many in the association say it was Dewees ' vision and leadership that transformed the Alumni House into the Triplett Alumni Center. Completed in 1997, the $4 million renovation was paid for by contributions from Ole Miss alumni and friends. In recognition of his commitment to providing scholarships to Ole Miss students, the Alumni Association ' s board voted in 2007 to name its scholarship fund the Herbert E. Dewees Jr. Alumni Association Lineal Descendant Scholarship Endowment. A month before retiring in 2004, he received the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award for exhibiting the charac- ter, humanitarian and spiritual qualities evident in the life of Sullivan, a Southerner who became a prominent 19th century lawyer, businessman and philanthropist. Upon receiving the award, Dewees said, " I have been blessed to work for a great university and with wonder- ful people who share a love for and commitment to Ole Miss. Serving our university and our alumni and friends has been most rewarding.
