People, People Everywhere Story by: Claire Graves Photography by: Elizabeth Rainey Students have to learn to cope with more people on campus because of an enrollment increase, but that is not always a bad thing. 018 the ole miss When students returned to the hallowed halls of the University of Mississippi this fall, they may have found them just a bit more crowded. Overall university enrollment totaled 18,344 in the fall of 2009, a record number representing a 4.2 percent increase over fall 2008. While an increased number of students on campus can cause a few inconveniences, some Ole Miss students see the increased numbers as a positive. " The University always has a homey feel regardless of the number of people on campus, " said Virginia Burke, junior triple major from Charleston, Mo. " While popular locations on campus like the Union and Turner Center might be a little bit more crowded, the crowds are still made up of friendly Ole Miss students. " Other students, like Josh Randle, senior political science major from Amory, say that the new numbers have handle most any kind of an increase in the students going through the recruitment process, " Wallace said. If the university ' s student population continues to increase, Randle said that other concerns could arise, including a lack of parking or study space. " The university should strive to maintain its current student faculty ratio, and if enrollment becomes increasingly larger the university might consider raising its admission standards, " Randle said. Although having more students on campus can bring about a few challenges, students like Burke believe that the benefits far outweigh any difficulties. " If anything, increased enrollment adds to our campus by fostering diversity within the student body and helping us to expand student venues, such as the addition of Einstein Brothers Bagels as a new dining location on " If anything, increased enrollment adds to our campus by fostering diversity within the student body and helping us to expand student venues. " - Virginia Burke Junior, Triple Major not affected the Ole Miss they know and love. " The Ole Miss campus has a very small and intimate environment while boasting all of the advantages of a larger institution, " Randle said. " I have yet to notice a substantial difference in the way that the university functions from the past year. " According to a University of Mississippi press release, expanding access to Mississippians and continuing to draw students with strong academic and leadership skills has been the two-fold focus of university enrollment efforts. Chancellor Dan Jones said that he believes this year ' s enrollment bears the fruits of that labor. " We have not only enrolled our largest class of new freshmen but also our largest class of honors students and our most diverse student body, " Jones said Enrolling a freshman class of 2,576, an 8.4 perce nt increase over last fall, creates the potential for a number of challenges. Since university policy requires almost all freshmen to reside on campus, an increased number of students created the need for additional university housing. The new residential college fulfilled this need by providing 465 more beds to the university housing system along with a great new community. Another area of campus life that was affected by the spike in freshman enrollment was the Greek system. Assistant Dean of Students, Scott Wallace said that the number of students who signed up for recruitment did increase but not significantly. " I think our processes are set up in such a way to campus, " Burke said. The growth in the student population can be attributed to a number of factors, said the Director of Enrollment Services, Whitman Smith. He pointed to good marketing efforts by the enrollment services staff, the Presidential Debate that Ole Miss hosted in 2008, and a strong showing in athletics as three of reasons more students wanted to become a part of the Ole Miss family this year. Smith also said that he believes that the downturn in the economy is driving more students to stay in-state for an affordable education. In a University of Mississippi press release, Provost Morris Stocks echoed Smith ' s view that Ole Miss provides an affordable education and gave his own take on why so many more students chose Mississippi ' s flagship university this year. " We like to think this milestone - growing to 18,000-plus students - is because college-bound students are learning that the University of Mississippi is the place to go if you want to experience amazing opportunities, " Stocks said. Burke agrees, saying, " It is great to see students around the nation take advantage of enrolling at the University of Mississippi. Ole Miss gives its students so many opportunities from interning during a Presidential Debate to studying abroad all over the world to earning a Rhodes Scholarship and it is great to see the university get the recognition it deserves.

Story by: Katherine Johnson Photography by: Jasmine Phillips The brand new Residential College offers students a different look at on-campus living. Coming to college provides students with an abundance of new freedoms they were not able to experience before. One of which, being the privilege of living on their own, away from their parents. At Ole Miss, however, this freedom serves as a bit of a disadvantage because freshman are required to reside on campus. Now, with the new residential college, on campu s housing seems to be slightly more appealing to students. Students living in the residential college are given a choice of apartment style rooms where each student shares a bathroom with no more than one other person. Although everyone loves having private bathrooms, the perks do not stop there. Students are provided with a cafeteria, teaching kitchen, fitness room, library, classrooms, and a computer center. With all of these amenities right outside their bedroom door, students do not have to leave the residential college for anything other than class unless they choose to. While all of these appealing factors may spark every student ' s attention and interest, the residential college is far more that just a building housed with great bathrooms and its own library. The residential college was meant to promote a community of students living together. The intentions are for students to live in the residential college multiple years to make this community stronger and more vibrant versus other residence halls where new groups of students come in every year. The purpose of this community of students is to help promote academic excellence, creativity, and mutual understanding of each other ' s differences. Dr. Daniel O ' Sullivan, associate professor of French and senior fellow of the residential college, lives with his family in the new facility. The senior fellow is the only faculty member that lives in the residential college. He is there to keep the stability of the community in place and to help provide the guidance needed on a daily basis. " Students and professors often don ' t understand each other as well as they could, " O ' Sullivan said. " I am learning more about the pressures that students face, which makes me more understanding of them, and I hope that the members of the residential college will come to understand faculty better. We ' re not, or at least, we ' re not all, humorless, rigid curmudgeons who only care about what we teach and assigning difficult papers and exams. We became professors because we care about developing our students ' minds and building their character. " Students are each assigned a faculty mentor who is there to provide them with guidance, whether it be academic related or just personal advice. Faculty mentors are active in the residential college in hopes of helping to guide the students while also providing a chance for a student faculty relationship that would not otherwise be possible. The faculty mentors are encouraged to attend all residential college activities, and they can also eat with students in the residential college ' s cafeteria whenever they choose to. " I think the residential college is definitely a positive addition to campus, " said Michelle Pesek, sophomore biology major from Dallas, Tx. " The residential college community provides personal connections that are sometimes lacking within other 020 the ole miss adison McKay, a freshman pharmacy student, and BiBnda Powers, a freshman psychology major, study for I a class in the courtyard of the Residential College. You go to dinner and there is always someone there that you know... It residence halls on campus. Since residential college students live together, eat together, and have the opportunity to take classes together, it gives them a stronger sense of unity and cohesiveness. " Another component of the residential college is the four houses they are divided into; Athens, Alexandria, Syracuse, and Rome. These houses were created by students, and are put in place to provide challenges, promote excellence, and make relationships with students. Each of the houses compete in challenges for points, and at the end of the year, the houses will compete for the chancellor ' s cup. The challenges can range anywhere from a chess match with single players to a womanless beauty review with multiple players. Each challenge winner is awarded points for their house. These points are added up a the end of the semester and an overall winner is chosen and awarded the chancellor ' s cup. " I like living in the residential college because you go to dinner and there is always someone is a lot like a family. -Taylor Cook there that you know, " said Taylor Cook, freshman international studies major from Southaven, Miss. " You sit down on the long tables and before you are finished eating the table is full and you are laughing and talking with your friends. It is a lot like a family, which is an amazing thing to have here because there will always be times when you need a friend, and I feel like if I ever am in need of that then I have to look no further than my friends here in the residential college. " At the residential college, the opportunities for students to get involved are endless. Residents may participate in the residential college student government or judicial panel, and they can also take fitness and cooking classes. Students are highly encouraged to take part in these activities and to exercise their voice in the residential college. With all of the positive feedback and amount of students expressing interest in this new style of on-campus living, Ole Miss might have set the corner stone for a new way of living in residence halls. There is already a second residential college being built next to the current one and will open to a new se- student residents in the fall of 2010. the ole miss urns 022 the ole miss Dr. Daniel O ' Sullivan Senior Fellow Story by: Amber Ward Photography by: Brian Mayo Dr. Daniel O ' Sullivan is a native of Worchester, Massachusetts, and he received his bachelor ' s degree in French at the College of Holy Cross in Worchester. From there, he went on to get his masters at the University of South Carolina Chapel Hill. It was here that he began to learn about southern culture and fall in love with the living style of the south. He once again moved north to get his Ph.D. at Boston College. He focused on medieval language and literature and earned his doctorate in 2000. After two years of post doctorate work at Indiana University, Dr. O ' Sullivan came to The University of Mississippi to be an assistant professor of French and the director of basic language instruction of French. Dr. O ' Sullivan has since published several articles and books on medieval French literature and culture. Two of his favorite classes to teach are history of the French language and Francophone Song. When the position to become the live-in faculty fellow at the Residential College opened, Dr. O ' Sullivan applied, and was the fortunate one that made the cut. His principle reason for applying for the position stemmed from his many trips abroad with various students. " When living abroad with students, I interact with them both inside and outside of the classroom, " O ' Sullivan said. " I thought that holding a position like this might be similar. " O ' Sullivan said that he has already learned many things while being in his position. " My view of the university has changed, widened, " he said. " Being a faculty member is so important and ultimately what I love to do, but you do not get the big picture when you only teach and do research. " O ' Sullivan also explained that he is seeing the big picture when it comes to his student ' s lives. " I see them outsideof class, I observe them in their daily interactions with others, learn about their preoccupations and gain a fuller perspective of student life, " O ' Sullivan said. The duties of the faculty fellow stem out in every direction. They are there to show guidance and to associate with the students. Along with that, Dr. O ' Sullivan is also the face that represents the Residential College, helping to structure and mold the it into the living, learning and growing community that it was built to be. Christa Curtis, pre-pharmacy major from Nesbitt, speaks very highly of O ' Sullivan. " I don ' t think that there could have been a better faculty member assigned to this position, " Curtis said. " Dr O ' Sullivan and his family truly make the Residential College outstanding. They are always inviting people to come eat with them at meals, and they wiJI invite a number of students on a first come basis to cook with them in their house. Dr. O ' Sullivan has made my experience in the Residential College amazing.

Ole Miss Students gather at the Library Sports Bar on any given weekend to hear the lovable DJ Mario utter those three words, " Are you ready? " On Saturdays in the fall, students, alumni, and devoted fans flock to the Grove in dresses and suits to support our football team in style. During campaign days, young men and women stand on street corners and urge fellow students to vote for their friends for titles such as Colonel Reb and Miss Ole Miss. But why do we do these things? Where do these traditions come from? In a campus as history-soaked as Ole Miss, it ' s no wonder that everywhere we turn there is a tradition staring us in the face. Even this yearbook that you hold in your hands started the biggest tradition that our school has - the name Ole Miss. When the yearbook first got its start in ' 897, our fledgling school was only known as the Jniversity of Mississippi. The yearbook staff then held a contest to name the publication and Elma Meek suggested the name " Ole Miss " in reference to the lady of the house in pre-Civil War days. Soon, the affectionate term " Ole Miss " became the name for the university as well. Although some debate the political correctness of this term, no one can argue that it ' s a term of respect and dignity. Every student that goes to Ole Miss knows the cheer Hotty Toddy. Some of us know it even better than we know our ABC ' s, having learned it well before we could read or write. An early version of it appeared in the November 19, 1926 issueof TheMississippian . It read " Heighty! Tighty! Gosh A Mighty! Who in the h -I are we? Rim! Ram! Flim! Flam! Ole Miss, ByD-n. " From these humble beginnings, the cheer that is ingrained in our hearts and memories was born. Before 1929, there was no such thing as Miss Ole Miss until Charlsie Elizabeth Anderson was named as the first. Her male counterpart, Colonel Reb, didn ' t come along until 1940 when jfc? I ei r cqc the ole mis 028 the ole miss Ado Dunagin took the title. Ever since then, the prestigious titles have gone to the young man and young woman who represent the best of our school. Although election time isn ' t everyone ' s favorite tradition, especially those who are harassed by greeks stationed all across campus campaigning for their fellow fraternity or sorority members, it is a dignified one. The Grove plays a major role in the life of an Ole Miss student, and it always has. For generations, it has served as a classroom and a playground alike, a backdrop for the Ole Miss student life. Never is this more apparent than on Saturday afternoons in the fall before the football team plays a home game. The Grove becomes packed with people of all ages, students, visitors, alumni, parents, friends, and the occasional Bulldog fan when there ' s not a Mississippi State game. All the stops are pulled out for these huge events because at Ole Miss, we believe that if the Rebels are going to bring their best to the game, we should do the same. So, we bring every type of food imaginable, set our our nicest table arrangements, and wear the best dresses and suits we own. The Grove started out as an actual tailgate, complete with trucks, until a rainy period in the early 1990s turned the Grove into a giant mud pit, making it difficult for the trucks to move. Afterwards, trucks were abolished from the Grove and tents took their place. Since then, Grove tailgating has been done without the actual tailgate, but with a little more class. An often forgotten tradition is the practice of graffiti in a turret in Ventress Hall. Near the turn of the century, when Ventress was still serving as the school ' s library, a Civil War veteran from rkansas scrawled his name and military unit on the inside wall of ne of Ventress ' s turrets. Soon after, students began following in is footsteps and signing their own John Hancock in the historic building. The turret is now littered with the signatures of former students, greek letters and graduation classes accompany them. The turret has since fallen into disrepair and is a hazard for anyone to walk in, but on occasion, some lucky student gets the opportunity to join the ranks of the Rebels who have gone before them and sign their own names in the tower. I W k It ' s traditions like these that bind our diverse student body togethe r. We feel connected to each other, the Rebel fans, and anyone who has ever stepped foot on our tree-lined campus It ' s the security blanket we feel from knowing that some things never change. Deep down, we know that there ' s a part of us that wants to be that alumnus that could visit Ole Miss on any given day and instantly be taken back to a time when we were tuctents here long as there are traditions at Ole Miss, yoj can aws go baclcio hat place and time when yc were yourf and wl fod free. the ole miss 029 M M1B (fib V ■•; Students turn the J.D. Williams Library from a place of quiet study into the party of the year. 030 ■ waww 1 . mB Story by: Katherine Johnson Photography by: Joseph Warner On May 6, 2009, at 10:00p.m., J.D. Williams Library pulsed with techno music and energy. Neon lights from glow sticks swirled intheair. At 10:10p.m., the library was once again quiet as a church mouse. For those of you who don ' t know, a rave is a wild dance party, usually complete with glow sticks and techno music. Our flash rave may have been short-lived, but those ten minutes were packed with energy and much needed stress release from finals week. Flash raves like this have been sweeping college campuses all across the country, but the one held here at Ole Miss was the first in the South. Interestingly enough, the organizers of the rave would like to remain anonymous. They enjoy the mystery surrounding their presence in the first Ole Miss flash rave, and their ability to positively impact the school, completely incognito. The mysterious organizers of the rave wanted to do something entirely nontraditional for Ole Miss, but something that the student body could get behind. The spur of the moment idea was formed on a Monday night, and the actual rave happened only two days later on Wednesday. Students found out about the flash rave by word of mouth and through its Facebook group (which encouraged the students to come in sober and to be respectful of the building.) Word spread like wildfire through the Ole Miss campus. The organizers had no idea the number of participants would be so large. One remembered thinking, " If we get 200 people, this thing ' s a success. " How wrong he was! The sheer oddity that students would be dancing in the library was enough to draw a large crowd. UPD estimates that about 2,000 people attended the rave, and fortunately, the only damage done to the library was a few loose ceiling tiles. Oddly enough, the rave planners didn ' t even get permission from the library staff or UPD. Instead, the university ' s faculty found out on their own. Some of the employees were even staying after work to attend the event. When the rave did happen the faculty was supportive and cooperative. Really, their options were slim: they could either go along with it and let everyone have a great time, or try to fight it, causing an unneeded uproar in the student body and a lot of hatred toward them. In regards to their extreme cooperation, one organizer said " I don ' t think I ' ve ever been more proud of our faculty. " " It was fun and I thought it was a really good idea to get everyone ' s mind off of studying. My mom even found out about the flash rave! " said Rachel Truxillo, sophomore business major from Roswell, Ga. The purpose of the night was simply to have a little fun. One of the organizers wrote on the flash rave ' s Facebook page " It is our final days in school. We are sick of studying. I ' ve forgotten blue books for three of my classes. Let ' s have fun. " With that simple plan, the flash rave was ready to rock Ole Miss. Students would be allowed- no, encouraged!- to dance their worries away right on the heart of campus. There were absurd costumes, crowd surfing, and beach balls galore. As students arrived, a guy dressed up in a penguin costume, known only as the Penguin Leader, led the crowd in an ear-splitting version of Hotty Toddy right before the throng of students rushed in and began their 10 minutes of raving. " About 30 minutes before the rave, I saw my friend getting on the elevator wearing purple pants, " said Taylor Clements, hospitality management major from Lafayette, Ga. " She told me about the flash rave being held in the library. She said, ' Anybody who ' s anybody is going to be there! ' So naturally, I got there as quickly as I could. While on my way to rave, I heard the students roaring, saw people dressed up, and glow sticks popping. I parked my car in the middle of the street, ran to the library, and as soon as I got there, I heard the penguin speak. He got everyone so riled up that we just couldn ' t wait to run inside! " Song selections were blasted over a PA system, including Genesis by Justice, Kemkraft 400 by Zombie Nation, a Discotech remix of Whatever You Like, a Paper Planes remix, and a few other dance-worthy songs. To end the evening, what else could be played except Journey ' s immortal " Don ' t Stop Believing " ? No other song would do the night justice. After the rave, many students spontaneously jumped in the Phi Mu fountain for a little moonlight swim. In all, the flash rave was considered a success by all (Even the librarians had fun!) Unfortunately, the organizers of the rave decided to make it a onetime thing, or in their words " We wanted to do one shot, one kill. " It was certainly a welcomed break from everyone ' s least favorite week. If you didn ' t attend, you certainly missed out. the ole miss 03 1 rm,-W2 I 9 ; I 1 i 1 I mi i — — — « 032 the 6 e m ss I • Story by: Caroline Lee Photography by: Cass Green One wall was lined in photos taken on the set of the film version of William Faulkner ' s " Barn Burning, " taken by a woman seated in the audience. The other walls had a variety of paintings and created a backdrop for a number of mingling scholars, hands casually holding plastic cups of Coke or Chardonnay. It was this that set the scene for Faulkner on the Fringe, an event that took place July 20 at Southside Gallery. In the center of the gallery, there were rows of white plastic chairs facing a makeshift art stand lectern. The bulk of the attendees stood behind the rows of chairs, ensuring closeness to a quick wine refill or to the other people filtering through. Faulkner on the Fringe was started because of a need to have an event in which everyone could participate in something Faulkner-related. It serves as an open-mic night for short performances related, however vaguely, to the work of Faulkner; it is " a revolution of the people, " as referred to by Colby Kullman, organizer of Faulkner on the Fringe. " I hope you can hear me. Or, not, " Donald Kartiganer said. Kartiganer, a Faulkner scholar at the University of Mississippi and guitarist for the Fringe event, strummed a short set of songs. Some were related to Faulkner ' s work, and some were unrelated. When playing an unrelated song, he noted that folk songs are " all Irish, and they ' re all sad. " In response, he sang in a pseudo-Irish accent and provided a performance with a barely-present guitar balanced with his clear, honest voice. Between his performance and the next, Kartiganer was called back to the front to share the anecdote about his meeting Joe DiMaggio, to which Kartiganer said it was " not fame " but glory. The lighthearted aspects of the evening were a striking contrast with the quiet audiences of the lectures that took place earlier in the day. Outside of the music, Gerald Walton, the University of Mississippi ' s provost emeritus, told the story of his two-word meeting William Faulkner John and Christine Smith sang a duet to the tune of Bob Dylan ' s " Blowin ' in the Wind, " while joking that they were bringing the ' 60s back. This throwback was evidenced during the chorus, during which the whole room sang along. The photographs of " Barn Burning, " taken by Deborah Freeland in 1979, lined the right wall of the gallery. Atthetime, Freeland wasagraduate student and got the opportunity to capture this collection over the shoulder of the cinematographer shooting " Barn Burning " for PBS. For the rest of the evening, people read pieces of Faulkner ' s work, including a letter from Faulkner to J.E. Neilson and personal poetry, including a piece that described a Tennessee Walker to " William Faulkner on four legs. " Though the Fringe is not geared toward any specific age group, the audience present wasa predominantly older crowd. That ' s not to say that anything about the Fringe was stilted or stuffy, however. The performances were lively and lighthearted, and mingling among audience members was not limited by age. The amount of attendees was enough to fill the gallery, but indicated that a number of people were missing the joy that is Faulkner on the Fringe. The event ended with a Faulkner-inspired rap by a group formed over dinner called Cash and the One Lick Less. As the event drew to a close, the people remaining at its midnight end left with the chant of " Yok-na-pa- taw-pha " echoing in their ears. the ole miss 033 Pray, Plan, Personalize.

Among the coaches making special appearances in the film is Ole Miss ' Houston Nutt, ' who recruited Oher as a prep standout and coached him his senior season. The movie depicts the remarkable true story of Oher, a homeless youngster from a broken home, taken in by the Tuohys, a prominent Memphis family who help him fulfill his potential. At the same time, Oher ' s presence in the Tuohys ' lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own. Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. Oher, an offensive tackle, garnered All-America honors each of his final two seasons with the Rebels and All-SEC accolades in his final three.

On April 25, 2009, University students, locals, and visitors filled the Oxford Square for the 1 4 th annual event. Clear skies and sunshine added a warm and festive tone to the spring air and an abundance of food, art, and music made this celebration one of the most exciting weekends of the spring season. Guests enjoyed everything from relaxing on the square to playing baseball on the newly renovated Swayze Field. Visitors had the opportunity to start the day off on the right foot with a " Spring Run " which featured two routes through the city of Oxford. A 1 0K and 5K run walk took runners down a beautiful scenic path that led through the Ole Miss campus and the Oxford downtown square. It was a great opportunity to get some exercise before the day ' s festivities. Two stages were set up on either side of the courthouse and musicians delivered exciting shows ranging from blues, to country, to regional rock-and-roll. Featured artists included Kenny Brown, Hill Country Blues Review, Charlie Mars, Stevi Woolworth and Robert Randolph and the Family Band. The bands started playing music around 1 a.m and continued non-stop until late into the night. Children found entertainment in the Square Fair sponsored by AT T. The fair featured magic shows, clowns, face painting, and even a petting zoo. One of the highlights of the fair was the Best Dressed Pet Contest where participants paraded their dogs, cats, rabbits, and chickens in colorful creative costumes hoping to win the coveted first prize. To many Ole Miss students, the Double Decker Festival signifies the end of the year and is a great opening to summer. It is a time for friends, fellowship, and good-natured fun. the ole miss 04 7 i Laff Co. is a part of the South Eastern Comedy Arts Alliance and was named the 2007 S.E.C.A.F.

TZ - is 050 the ole miss Story by: Lauren Tullos Contributed Photography Almost instantly after pulling open the fogged over glass doors to the Turner Center Natatorium, you begin to notice the humid air sticking to your skin and the pungent scent of chlorine that fills the air. Without much thought, you head toward the closest open lane, jump in, and begin your first stroke. Time passes quickly and the workout is over before you know it. Seventy two laps later, you ' re headed out the door with your heart pounding through the wet spandex stuck to your body and ready to face the rest of your day with the satisfaction that your workout is behind you. One thing often remains unnoticed during your 60 minutes at the pool each day. Sitting six feet above the water, one of the university ' s 35 certif ied lifeguards carefully watches as you stride back and forth the 25 yard pool. Although he may be overlooked by many who come to swim each day, the lifeguard on duty never overlooks the possibility of an accident while the pool is in use. Mark Garneau, Assistant Director of Campus Recreation, is the person held responsible for these highly trained students who keep the three pools running smoothly each day. " The staff is constantly preventing accidents and that ' s our main focus, " Garneau said. " If we never go in after somebody, we know we ' ve done our job well. " Because of the staff ' s strategic focus on preventative lifeguarding, there are only two to three cases a year when a lifeguard is forced to go in after someone. Their highest activity of accident prevention occurs during the summer when young children come to play and swimming lessons are in progress. Although, with an increase of senior citizens using the pool for exercise, the lifeguards now have to be prepared with CPR knowledge in the case of a surprise situation. Before a student is chosen for the lifeguarding staff, they are required to go through an intense 30-35 hour lifeguarding course which includes First Aid, CPR, and AED training for the use of a defibrillator machine. If chosen to be placed on staff after completing the course, Garneau not only holds each staffer responsible for the swimmers ' safety while on the stand, but he also holds them responsible for daily tasks such as the opening and closing of the pool, testing the water chemistry, keeping the facility clean, and ensuring the rescue equipment is ready to go. To keep the staff on their toes, Garneau also prepares them by occasionally dramatizing rescue situations to see how quick they are to respond. " We do mock drills throughout the semester to get the lifeguards ready for that surprise situation. " Patrick Williams, a lifeguard for the past two years, knows first-hand what it ' s like to use the skills he ' s prepared for. The most rewarding thing he ' s been able to do while on staff was saving a 5-year-old boy who fell off his noodle during swimming lessons. " I wasn ' t really able to think of anything to do fast enough, " he said. " It was just my instinct to get him out as fast as possible. " Garneau didn ' t hesitate to share his appreciation for the staff and the pride they take in their job. Although the staff ' s training is not often put in use, the few situations such as William ' s rescue are a testament to the large responsibilities these lifeguards have. Many have continued to lifeguard after leaving Ole Miss, and it always puts a smile on Garneau ' s face to receive positive feedback and the satisfaction of a job well done in training the staff. the ole miss 05 1 ft o-S rt « t jj " -s sr A r ft ■ ■ • Story and Photography by: Caroline Lee HP I ■■ i - -J j ' t i mil [ i Wk ' A_ ■ ' E As Square Books celebrates its 30th anniversary this week, it is only appropriate to discuss what makes it arguably one of the most well-loved bookstores in the country. Mo Rocca, who visited on a trip to Oxford surrounding the Presidential Debate, provides a caveat for those who are about to make their first trip. " Beware: upon entering Square Books you will feel like an uneducated dolt. You will beat yourself senseless for the tens of thousands of hours you ' ve spent watching TV, rather than reading all the great books that doubtless would broaden your horizons and deepen your understanding of the human condition. You ' ve been warned, " Rocca said. A thirtieth anniversary commemorative shirt bears the quote screen printed on the back. When walking into Square Books, visitors ' nostrils are immediately filled with the rich smell of paper and binding glue. The center floor space, covered in partly-threadbare oriental rugs of yore, leaves plenty of space for the first- (and second-, and third-) time visitor to turn about the room a few times until he lands on one of the sets of built- in shelves, or the island of new arrivals. After making the rounds downstairs, a list of genres lining the front-facing boards of the stairs encourages those present to read their way up the stairs. They are in a bookstore, after all. This aspect of the store is reminiscent of the store ' s original location, above what was then part of Neilson ' s and now Off Square Books. With the old location, it was difficult to draw customers in because of its limited visibility. There was no real window display because of its second- story height, and so the painted genres served as both interest and immediate identification as a bookstore for passers-by. As for the current location ' s set of stairs, their main purpose is to take readers to the upper floor, where the smell of paper is joined by the aroma of coffee. At the top of the stairs sits a counter with a fish bowl for tips and a sometimes-finicky espresso machine, seen occasionally shooting its filter cups at innocent and oblivious employees. The coffee is served to go, or, preferably, to have inside and served in a Square Books mug bearing a logo and a quote ranging from William Faulkner to Winnie the Pooh. After getting a cup of coffee, there are a number of worn-in chairs tucked carefully into nooks between tall shelves for sitting and reading. The upholstery has often worn thin on the armrests, with velvet rubbed raw; the chair form of the Velveteen Rabbit. Each is the chair that surprises with its deep-falling seat and tired springs, and its enveloping back cushion that warms with just a few moments of sitting in it. When talking to Lisa and former mayor Richard Howorth, owners of the Square Books family, it seems as though they give ownership to the Oxford community just as much as they do to themselves. They also share the joy in the various aspects of the store like those who enter it do. " It ' s like a kid in a candy store. " Lisa said. " Aside from seeing all the books published, you get to meet and support a lot of the writers that come through. The most rewarding, though, is getting to see local writers ' make it ' in a spectacular way. " As an example, she mentioned watching author Barry Hannah get some success. When he moved to Oxford, he continued growing as a writer and became " beyond famous - iconic, " according to Mrs. Howorth. As authors have gotten older and garnered more attention, many of them have moved past smaller things in Oxford. That doesn ' t mean that there is a dying literary crowd here, though. " It ' s exciting having new writers drawn in, and starting all over again, " Mrs. Howorth said. When the store opened, everything was smaller, and Oxford simpler. Richard Howorth noted that there was just one bar and two restaurants on the square. With the opening of Square Books, the community was provided with a very different place. All in the community, including students and faculty, and visitors from out of town, were very supportive, Mr. Howorth said. The bookstore has no intentions of going away, either. Though skeptics have asked often what worries Mr. Howorth harbors concerning the e-book and the Amazon Kindle, he says there are none. " Go to Square Books Jr., and watch the enthusiasm. There ' s this open-ended, unbridled excitement. In fact, I only stay there for a little while - it ' s a little too wild, " Mr. Howorth said. Aside from enthusiasm, Mr. Howorth said that its success has to do with his " great staff. " He praised the way it had been run during his " eight-year vacation, " jokingly referring to his time as mayor of Oxford. Overall, those who visit like the experience that Square Books and its branches provide. " I think they see it as an aspect of the community worth supporting, " Mr. Howorth said. He quickly added that " you can never be too confident about these things, though. " Mr. Howorth also said that the community has some sort of sense that the stores belong to them. " If you have a problem, you can bang your shoe on the counter and it ' s going to be me that it gets back to, " he said. In comparison to big-box bookstores, this is something that people can attach themselves to. This attachment has extended itself to multiple authors visiting, and many word-of-mouth mentions. Mrs. Howorth, in talking about the couple ' s three children, said that when they left Oxford, they " took (growing up around the stores) for granted. They went to college elsewhere, and would run into people and professors that would say ' Oh, you ' re from that town with the really great bookstore. ' " The attachment goes both ways, though. Mr. Howorth, in talking about the college students that come through, lamented that he is " just getting to know (the students), and then they ' re leaving. " Perhaps the ones that love Square Books most, though, are the ones who are attached and need to make a permanent memory. Multiple weddings and wedding receptions have been held in Square Books, and in its previous locations. " I just hope nobody decides to have a baby here, " Mrs. Howorth said with a laugh. ♦a I In today ' s world of fast-paced living and insta nt gratification, the Apple iPhone has become a device most students can ' t leave home without.

However, where its purpose was once solely to entertain, the iPhone has now become an academic necessity for many college students. Educational applications, or " apps, " are becoming increasingly popular. Some can be purchased or downloaded at no cost from the educational section through the online iPhone App Store. Study-based applications including iTranslate, iStudiez, Kindle and No Fear Shakespeare can be downloaded. Blackboard als recently developed an app for iPhones and Blackberries. " I have more apps to help me out with school- related activities than I do for games or entertainment, " senior French major Susan Barfield said. " I often use the apps for Wikipedia, dictionary and thesaurus, and Word Reference for translation. I even have an app that serves as flash cards to learn and remember the presidents of the United States. " In addition to downloadable apps, owners can access Web sites with built-in 3G access. " Sometimes I don ' t want to pay for an app when I can just hop onto the Internet on my phone and get what I need for free, " sophomore pharmacy major Hunter Treutel said.

" the ole miss 057 On January 12, 2010 at 4:53 p.m. an earthquake of 7.0 magnitude struck the country of Haiti. Story By: Caitlin Wilkerson Several student organizations at the University of Mississippi joined relief efforts to assist the Caribbean nation of Haiti, which was struck by a massive earthquake in January. The 7.0 earthquake lasted only about thirty-five seconds, but the destruction was devastating. Hundreds of thousands of people lost their lives and millions were affected and left displaced or homeless. Almost immediately the students of Ole Miss took action and wanted to lend a helping hand to the pitiful people of Haiti. In a message sent out by Sparky Reardon, Dean of Students, all students were asked that all relief efforts and fundraising events be coordinated through the Dean of Students office. This was to ensure that the university could centralize response efforts by members of the University of Mississippi community. Reardon said that this decision was made because disaster response officials have identified certain limitations on what can be done and what is needed. Habitat for Humanity, Delta Sigma Theta Soroity, Inc., and Kappa Delta were three of the first student organizations on campus to get involved with relief efforts. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority held a relief drive called: I am only one, but I am one. This fundraiser encouraged Ole Miss students along with people of the Oxford and Lafayette County community to come out and celebrate Haiti ' s past while helping to rebuild its future. According to Karry Pippin, Delta Sigma Theta President and senior psychology major from Baldwyn, the drive took place in the Union lobby on January 28, 2010. People were asked to bring donations including clothing, non-perishable food items, first-aid items, shoes, toiletries, bedding items and monetary donations. Pizza and entertainment were provided for those who attended. Four hundred dollars was collected the night of the event solely by donations. T-shirts were also sold at the event and continued to be sold throughout the semester. Proceeds from t-shirt sales were combined with money and other donations made. The Delta Sigma Theta ' s are working with the Haiti Medical Missions of Memphis to send everything collected from the fundraiser to Haiti. Pippin was both honored and humbled to hav e her organizations host such an event. " It was an honor for the Lambda Sigma Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority to assist the people of Haiti in any way we could, " Pippin said. " It was very touching to see the students of Ole Miss and members of the Oxford and Lafayette community come together to accomplish one common goal. " 3 Million people needed emergency aid after the earthquake struck. 058 the ole miss Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Pippin said that the event would not have been possible had it not been for everyone ' s desire to give. The ladies of the Alpha Mu chapter of Kappa Delta spearheaded a fundraising event for the entire campus and community. This fundraiser was called " KTee ' s for Haiti. " Members dropped off clothing donation boxes at all twenty-two Greek houses on campus and collected from them every Thursday. Off-campus students and members of the Oxford-Lafayette community were able to drop off donations at the Kappa Delta house. The ladies of KD also teamed up with Habitat for Humanity setting up a booth with donation boxes in the union during Habitat Week. Kerrie-Taylor Leech, Kappa Delta member and junior journalism major from Vicksburg, said that the great thing about this project is that it brought the students of Ole Miss and the Oxford-Lafayette County together. " Ole Miss students love to wear t-shirts and most have a closet full of them that never get worn, " Leech said. " This fundraiser allowed people to give something to someone that needs it more than them, and with all the drop-off locations, it was very easy for people to participate. " The Ole Miss chapter of Habitat for Humanity hosted " Habitat Week " Feb. 8-12 in the union lobby. T-shi rts were sold with half of the proceeds going to Haiti relief. Richard Mckay, President of the Ole Miss chapter of Habitat and senior managerial finance major from Philadelphia, Miss., said that the crowd was mainly drawn by the display they set up that was an example of the current living situation of those in Haiti. " The setup consisted of a tarp and pole type deal, " Mckay said. " It really made students aware of what is going on over there right now. That ' s what we are trying to do, raise awareness so that people want to help out. " The money raised by Habitat was mainly to go toward transitional shelters, which were being built for those who do not have homes. These shelters can be built and added onto later, but they do not have to and can stand alone. Mckay said that it takes about $2,000- 3,000 to build one, so Habitat ' s goal was $2,500. Mckay said that he is excited that the University of Mississippi family came together in this effort to help the people of Haiti. " Habitat has been growing on campus and getting more and more people involved, " Mckay said. " We are so glad that we were able to find a way to involve people who were interested in helping people outside of our intimate community. " The major quake sent 33 aftershocks ranging in magnitude fron 4.2 to 5.9 tin A _ Story by: Caroline Lee David Hopper What was a dance floor in front of the opening band soon filled before the Four Tops went onstage. The sweetness developed by age seeped through as one of the ladies kindly told the woman next to her that " the front row was just filling up, " and that there wouldn ' t be room for her. There was no shoving to get next to the stage, and for potentially the first time at the Lyric Theatre, the band made it to the stage on time. Cobra Security, usually stone-faced, actually smiled at passing audience members with drinks in hand. The Four Tops arrived on stage clad in matching powder blue suits glittered with rhinestones and fastened with heavy crystal buttons. Their shoes also matched, as did their striped chiffon shirts. Though three of the Four Tops ' original members have passed, the group lasted a remarkable 40 years of performances together. Roquel Payton, son of original member Lawrence Payton, performs with the group, alongside Theo Peoples, Ronnie McNeir and Abdul " Duke " Fakir. Fakir is the sole surviving member of the Four Tops, and has performed as part of the Motown hit machine for the past 54 years. His love for the band has not diminished over time; his stamina has not decreased through playing around 100 shows per year, even today at age 74. " It ' s still the best part of my day, " Fakir said. " I just enjoy what I do. I love performing before audiences, especially as long as they still enjoy the show. If they enjoy the show like the folks did tonight, it makes it fun. I ' m not ready to sit on the couch. I still can play golf all day. " The Four Tops are no strangers to travel. To get to Oxford, members flew from Las Vegas, Detroit, Miami and Los Angeles. They perform for 100 audiences each year, and have no intention of slowing down. " We stay pretty busy, " he said. " We try to go out of the country no more than about once every other year. Next year, we ' re going to Australia and Europe. We travel across the world. We do a lot of casinos, performing arts centers, private 060 the ole miss shows - we do ' em all, " Fakir said. This set of concerts included the Lafayette Oxford Foundation for Tomorrow (LOFT) benefit. The group got in at 7:30 p.m., to go on stage at 9. When asked if they needed time for rehearsal, the group ' s manager said no - this quartet has had enough practice on the road to where they don ' t have to prepare. Though the lineup has changed songs. After " Baby I Need Your Loving, " the group launched into " Bernadette, " a crowd favorite. They snapped their fingers and spun in time, bringing back choreography reminiscent of Motown groups of the ' 60s. At one point, Fakir put his mic by a sax while the player soloed. The Four Tops moved from their they ' re done with time sense. We try to pass that on to people and I think they feel that. " Fakir added that the chances of another Motown are possible but unlikely in today ' s music industry. " There are a lot of good artists, " Fakir said. " I don ' t know if there will ever be that many put together under one umbrella out of one city. It ' s possible. There ' s still a lot of artists in certain yth ongs danceable he Motown Sound has got great have great lyrics. Usually they are vt they ' re very , and they ' re done with time sense. We try to pass that on to people and I think they feel that " -Abul ' ' Duke " Fakir from the original Four Tops, the audience that attended Friday night was not disappointed. " Ooh, they ' re so good. They just are so talented, " said a woman pressed against the stage with her fur vest. Audience members were a mature crowd; most were over 40, wrists encircled by heavy bracelets, weathered watches and blue or silver wristbands bearing the name of an attorney. The ones that weren ' t that age were their children. The spirit of the audience was not dampened by age. A woman in a star-spangled constellation of a dress shook her charm bracelet to the beat, and an older man in a sweater vest referred to his wife as his " hot date " of the evening. Tension rose as the horn section began to play, and the guitarist and bassist assumed the stage. One by one, each sparkling member of the Four Tops walked onstage. Cameras flashed as they opened with the familiar classic " Baby, I Need Your Loving. " " Sing it to the one you love, " Peoples said, as the crowd joined in on the chorus. Peoples, the youngest of the group at 48, sang lead on most of the upbeat hits to a number of slower- tempo dedications as the quartet sang to honor their group ' s late members, including a tribute Payton sang for his father. The Four Tops, along with The Supremes and The Temptations, were among Motown ' s most consistent groups. Ten years after singing together for the first time at a birthday party in Detroit, they notched their first hit in 1964 with " Baby I Need Your Loving. " The catchy, danceable " I Can ' t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) " and " It ' s the Same Old Song " hit the charts the following year. Their signature song, " Reach Out, I ' ll Be There, " went to No. 1 in 1966. Their final Top Five pop hit came in 1973 with " Ain ' t No Woman (Like the One I ' ve Got) " The Motown hit factory cranked out more than 1 00 Top 1 hits between 1 960 and 1 979. The " Motown Sound, " as it became known, generally consisted of sweet melodies, hand clapping and tambourines, driving bass lines and simple lyrics. " The Motown Sound has got great rhythm, " Fakir said. " The songs have great lyrics. Usually they are very danceable or they ' re very lovable, and cities. Detroit still has great artist, hit songwriters, singers, dancers, and rappers. If somebody put it together it could be that, but the record business is totally different now. " Overall, LOFT had a great turnout. With 850 attendees, the foundation was pleased with the results. " We were delighted with the turnout. We haven ' t calculated an exact amount (of money raised), but it far exceeded our expectations, " said Molissia Swaney, LOFT chair. The group plans to meet in December to discuss its goals and how they will disperse the money. They plan to focus on education in Oxford, but continue to support the nonprofit organizations within the Oxford community. " It ' s a great little community, Oxford and Ole Miss, " Swaney said. " I was really thankful. Everybody that we asked said yes, as far as help goes. " Plans for next year ' s event are already in the works, according to Swaney. Though LOFT has not yet decided on a musical guest, things look promising. The Four Tops and their booking agents loved Oxford, and have offered to help in booking for next year. the ole miss 06 1 062 the o e miss YOU GOTTA HAVE IT It happens every Saturday. Gameday rolls around. And you forget something. Necesities are key in proper Groving. Story by: Caitlin Wilkerson Art Contributed If Ole Miss football is a religion, then tailgating in the Grove is like mass. It ' s the beauty, excitement and spectacle of the experience. And, like with everything worth experiencing, it is always enhanced by being prepared. Because let ' s face it, once you realize you forgot your flip-flops you were going to change into after making an appearance at a few tents, it kind of puts a damper on the rest of the day. First things first, avoid the clutch. Yes, it ' s cute, it ' s trendy and all that jazz, but get real. Aside from a credit card and a tube of lip gloss, you can ' t fit much else into it. Take one of your roomier bags, mainly for the strap because it will come in handy when you ' re using one hand to hold your solo cup and the other to wave your pom-pom. Not to mention, it can hold all the below necessities. The key is to keep it simple because simplicity always pays off during the gameday chaos. That ' s where a deck of cards comes into play. After a few rounds, everyone starts to rejuvenate the literate conversation and the party can continue. I ' m not talking serious games that take concentration and brain cells, like poker, I ' m talking simple games like rummy or crazy eights; something you know as well as your favorite rib joint. 4.1. D. Case Wallets are big, clunky and heavy. Even the skinny ones can weigh you down more than you would like. On game day, all you really need is your license, student I.D. and some money or debit card. All that fits nice and neat in a little I.D. case made specifically for the streamlined lady. Plus, if something were to happen and you lost aforementioned case or even your entire purse, you don ' t lose your entire life. Just some of it, which can be handled swiftly by the right people. 1.

Flip Flops If you have a minor brain blip and decide to wear heels to a game, do yourself a favor and pack a pair of flip flops or flats. They even make flats that fold up into a pouch the size of a small wallet, so it saves some space. Heels are adorable and fashionable and awesome and I love them as much as the next girl, but after standing up cheering for a couple of hours or making my rounds in the Grove, they cause pain that not even a stiff drink can cure. Plus, it gets sort of irritating pulling your stilettos out of the moist ground. Then they ' re dirty. That ' s not cool. Don ' t be the girl walking barefoot through the Grove, heels in hand. Let ' s keep it easy and breezy like CoverGirl. 3. Deck of Cards Tailgating is not a quick and easy thing. You ' re basically there for the majority of the day before the game even starts. Conversation can run dry every once in awhile. 6. Flask Now, before you think the worst of this little bin of tin, hear me out.

The most recent advancement? A shift from " Journalism Department " to the Meek School of Journalism and New Media. Along with the name change, the School has implemented new programs to help students become multi-faceted in the multimedia world. The School of Journalism is updating its curriculum and added a number of other important initiatives this academic year. New programs include multimedia depth reporting projects, starting with enterprising work in the Mississippi Delta; creation of an Integrated Marketing Communication curriculum, which focuses on areas such as advertising, public relations, research, television and social networking; weekend field reporting trips for students at community newspapers; new fund-raising efforts; and enhanced opportunities for students at the Student Media Center, which is now part of the new School of Journalism and New Media. A Student Advisory Board has also been recently started, consisting of 1 1 student members and 18 school ambassadors. The School is named for Ed and Becky Meek, who made a major donation to the School. Ed Meek, the former Director of Public Relations at Ole Miss, is a graduate of the Journalism program. He and his wife ■ m serving 13 years before becoming dean of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln ' s journalism department in 1990. Among his many plans to evolve the School, Dr. Norton plans to build a strong relationship between the School and Student Media. Dr. Norton also believes that there will be benefits associated with becoming a School that were not present when the program existed as a department. " Becoming an independent school will lead to more accountability and prominence, " Norton said. A major focus of the new School is on dealing with technological changes in mass media. " The [journalism] program has a great tradition and heritage that the Edwin and Becky Meek donation will enhance as the faculty continues on its mission strategically, " Dr.Norton said. " Our faculty are revising the curriculum to make it multiple platform in nature. The intent is to have graduates who have skills in every area and specialization in one medium. " A the University throughout their adult lives. On July 1, 2009, the Meek School of Journalism and New Media named Dr. Will Norton as founding dean.

The answer was easy when you were five. If you were a little girl, you probably walked around your house in a frilly pink tutu and proudly announced that you wanted to one day become a famous ballerina and if you were a little boy, you probably dreamed night and day of becoming a professional baseball player. Then you grew up. While the American Ballet Theatre is still looking for talented dancers, and professional baseball teams are always recruiting, most of us are never selected, so we have to find other ways to earn a living. So how does a person go about choosing a major? First of all, think of something you are interested in. What is your favorite school subject? Do you like math? Consider career opportunities in business or accounting. Is writing your passion? Maybe you should go into journalism or English. Or both. A double major is always an option if you want to expand your horizons. " I decided to double major in order to allow myself to get as much out of my time at Ole Miss as I could, " said Anamaria Caradine, sophomore from Vardaman. " I changed my major several times because I could not pick one that I was happy sticking with. After I looked at a list of all the majors offered in the School of Liberal Arts, I realized that there were more than one of the options in which I was interested in studying. I chose the two majors that I thought wou ld interest me the most and that I felt I would be the happiest spending four years of my life studying. Having two degrees will widen my marketability for graduate schools and future employers. I will also be able to combine the skills that I learn from both majors to perform better in my future career. " Are you an artist, singer or dancer? Do you enjoy performing in plays? Maybe you play a musical instrument. You may find your niche in art, art history, theater arts, or music. If you are interested in the way people think and behave, and why people do the strange things they do, consider psychology or sociology. " I decided to major in speech pathology because I am very interested in disorders such as Cerebral palsy and Down ' s syndrome and their effect on the juvenile population, " said Jennifer Hanson, junior from Corinth. An International Studies major is required to study abroad for at least on semester. If spending the fall or spring semester in Asia, Latin America, or Europe appeals to you, maybe you should consider International Studies. So what does a person do with his or her major after graduation? A degree in a foreign language is useful in the world of business, foreign trade, interpreting, and teaching, and in this booming age of technology and computers, a degree in computer science can take you in more directions than you may think. Maybe you are medical school bound. A biology or chemistry degree might be helpful when it comes time to take the MCAT There is no pre-law major, but if you want to attend law school, a degree in English, philosophy, or anything that teaches you to think critically and write clearly would be most beneficial. Researching which occupational fields are the fastest growing may also help you decide on a major. The healthcare field is one of the fastest growing fields, with about 3 million jobs becoming available through 2016 according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. The computer software engineering field is also skyrocketing with all the advances in technology, and is expected to open more jobs than any other field through 2016. Finding your major is a challenging decision, and it should be. You will have your career for the rest of your life. You will devote your life to it. You want to do something you will enjoy and be happy doing. It is also okay to change your major if you decide the field you are pursuing does not interest you. That is the beautiful thing about college. Not only do you make amazing friends, create wonderful memories, and skip a lot of classes, but you also find yourself. You can take a variety of classes and find exactly what you enjoy doing and who you want to become. the ole miss 073 Luck of Story by: Caitlin Wilkerson It was just before 10 a.m. when William Ivey was wakened by the harsh early morning sunlight gleaming through the small window of the airplane. Groggy and stiff from the nearly nine-hour flight, he slowly sat up and peered out at the large and seemingly never ending mass of green land that lie thousands of feet below him. " My initial thought was, where is the city? " Ivey said. " I honestly thought that it looked very much like where I grew up in Natchez, Mississippi. Rural, calm and sparse. " After landing, going through the customs and border patrol routine, and picking up his luggage at baggage claim, Ivey stepped outside expecting to feel for the first time the wrath of the dreadful Irish weather he had heard so much about. Instead, he said it was warm, sunny and for a brief moment he forgot he was in Dublin and felt like he was back in Memphis, Tenn., where his journey began. Ivey recalled the feeling he had standing in line at the taxi rank waiting for a ride. " It was the first time it really hit me that I was alone in an unfamiliar place, " Ivey said. " Truthfully, I was scared to death, but I knew at that very moment that I would be leaving that country a different person. " For the next eight weeks, this unfamiliar place was home to Ivey. He was enrolled in a program through the University of Mississippi that works with a partner organization, EUSA, to place students in internships abroad and in the United States. Ivey ' s internship was not just any typical summer job fit for a college student. He worked in the fund-accounting department of one of the largest financial institutions currently in operation, J. P. Morgan Chase and Co. Ivey said that it was the less than desirable economic state the U.S. is facing that was the driving force behind his decision to make the journey to Ireland for the summer. " These days, a college degree is simply not enough, " Ivey said. " I knew it was imperative that I spend my summer getting legitimate work experience, but I needed an edge. I needed to stand out to future potential employers. Having lived and worked in another country will hopefully give me that platform from which to shine. " The first few days at J. P. Morgan proved to be a challenge for Ivey. " Immediately it became clear to me that not only was this job going to be difficult, but that difficulty increased tremendously when coupled with trying to communicate and work with a group of people from a completely different culture and background than yourself, " Ivey said. Ivey said that though he was discouraged at times, he reminded himself frequently that he was living the dream of many students. He tried to relax and go out with some of the friends he had made from his program after work, but because his workdays were so intense, often times he would just go straight to his apartment and crash. Ivey said that his significant learning experiences were not entirely confined to his work experience. " I had conversations with locals about all sorts of topics ranging from J. P. Morgan to American and Irish politics alike, " Ivey said. " I ate traditional Irish stew at least once a week and drank Guinness from the storehouse it was distilled in. I even got to listen to an Irish folk-teller. " After a week and a half at J. P. Morgan, Ivey was given his own fund to reconcile in the afternoon and could be productive from his own desk. Only three weeks into his internship, the pricing accountant who had been teaching Ivey the ropes was let go. This unforeseen and unfortunate situation, required Ivey to take on several more jobs related to the pricing position, and by the end of his time at J. P. Morgan he had been in charge of several funds on his own. Ivey said that his time spent at J. P. Morgan, his conversations with people, his travels, and the relationships he made with people all contributed to his summer experience, and he could not likely have gained these things without having traveled and worked abroad. " I will certainly never forget my time spent in the be autiful Emerald Isle, " Ivey said. " It knew it would change me, and it did.

In association with Campus Recreation, Ole Miss Outdoors hosts a troop of young men and women with a keen passion for conquering the wilderness and outdoor adventure. In the fall of 2009, six new troop leaders passed a SOLO course taught by Instructor Allen White. This course certified these troop leaders for Wilderness First Response and prepared them with a high level of wilderness medical training. The department also offers an EL 200 class which provides its students with things like outdoor leadership skills, how to a master ropes course and how to swim and canoe in large bodies of water. They heavily stress the importance of soft skills like communication, leadership, conflict resolution. Among the most common service offered by Ole Miss Outdoors is the Challenge Course Certification. Mostly local clubs on campus and troops in Lafayette County come to spread their wings and show their true colors. They work together to master ropes courses and learn how to communicate and practice leadership with peers. Ole Miss Outdoors is still a new program, but it is slowly beginning to grow and prosper with the patronage and support of local groups.

" Terrorism against our nation will not stand. " These words were spoken by President George W. Bush barely an hour after the first plane struck the World Trade Center ' s North Tower on September 11, 2001. The response to the attacks ranged from the beginning of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to blood drives by small charity organizations. The attacks were tied to Al-Qaeda, sparking interest in the Arabic-speaking cultures of the Middle East. In 2008, the University of Mississippi responded to this interest by creating the Arabic Language Program on the Oxford campus. Under the guidance of instructor Allen Clark, the program has grown from its infancy in the fall of 2008 to one of the established modern languages at Ole Miss. The Arabic Language Program was founded with the new Center for Intelligence and Security Studies in the School of Applied Sciences. According to Clark, the reason for the creation of this new program at Ole Miss is because it is a critical language in today ' s society. " There is a rising need for learning this language because of world events in the past decades. " The Arabic program consists of several aspects of learning to make sure students are fully immersed in the language. The first avenue of learning is the formal classes that are offered by Dr. Clark. The program only consists of two years of classes this year but is expanding into 300-level classes by the fall of 2010. Traditional classes are offered in the fall and spring semesters as well as intensive classes during the summer. These summer 078 the ole miss classes meet four hours a day for eight weeks during the summer. Along with traditional classes, an Arabic Club was formed to help create a community of Arabic learning outside the classroom. " The club meets weekly where students from the different classes can intermingle and help each other with the language, " said Antonia Bird, secretary of the Arabic Club. Clark said that students take Arabic for a variety of reasons. " One reason is because they are in the military but many students want to learn the language for other reasons, " Clarksaid. " Some are interested in the culture while others learn it for future purposes in the workforce. The one good thing about Arabic is that if you are fluent in it, it will help you secure a job almost anywhere. " " I ' m taking Arabic to become multilingual in a globalized world and to promote cultural awareness, " said Zachary Dozier, junior undeclared major from Tupelo. " I hope to become fluent while living in a country such as Egypt or Morocco. " Other students, like Bird, are taking the language " There is a rising need for learning this language because of world events in the past decades. " Dr. Allen Clark Pro fesso r of Arabic for more specific reasons. " I plan on using Arabic in my future career, " said Bird. " I want to become an International Human Rights Lawyer wor king in the Middle East. " Although the Arabic program is young when compared to other languages on campus, it has a bright future ahead of it. Students can already get a minor in Arabic as well as declare Arabic as their major. At this point, a student cannot graduate with Arabic as their major but Clark hopes that within the near future that will be possible. According to Clark, the Arabic program at Ole Miss is unique because no university in this region offers a bachelor ' s degree in the language. " The closest university that grants degrees in Arabic is in Houston, Texas, " said Clark. The future of the Arabic program also consists of more than just classes. Clark says the program hopes to bring in a new professor to help the program grow. " We also want to start study abroad classes and summer trips to help students learn from native speakers, " said Clark. " There is only so much students can learn in a classroom. For the full experience, students must get out into the world and live what they earn. " i v 9 Life in S c? Story by: Allissa Coomer Whitney Hauslein, senior chemical engineering major from Portland, Texas interned at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration at the Kennedy Space Center last summer. During her time at NASA, Hauslein worked in the Granular Mechanics and Regolith Operations Lab under Dr. Philip Metzger. NASA hires interns through state funded programs around the United States, which she heard about from Dr. Ellen Lackey from the Mechanical Engineering Department here at Ole Miss. Lackey is a representative for the Mississippi Space Grant Consortium, which chose Hauslein as one of two students from the state of Mississippi to work for NASA at Kennedy Space Center. Hauslein ' s internship lasted for 10 weeks, from June until August. Her project for the summer was to explore the physical relationships of crater formation in lunar regolith (moon dirt) from impinging subsonic jets. Everyday, she performed an experiment in the lab, where she had a box of sand or lunar stimulant set up underneath a piping system that blew nitrogen gas onto the smooth level surface of sand. She recorded the activity of the gas blowing the sand, which formed a crater. She then used software to measure the dimensions of the crater as it grew. She was to use that data collected to find equations that describe crater growth as a function of the diameter of the gas jet blowing into the sand. Hauslein said the most interesting thing about this research was that several researchers from around the world were also working to figure out the physical relationship behind crater formation which depends on numerous variables including gas density, gas velocity, gas jet diameter, height of the gas above the sand, properties of the particles forming the crater, etc. Hauslein performed hundreds of these experiments and spent many hours analyzing data on the computer over the " It was amazing to see the shuttle lift off the ground, feeling the sound waves from the engines shaking the ground and my body, watching the shuttle slowly disappear into the atmosphere leaving behind only a trail of smoke. " Whitney Hauslein course of the summer. Aside from the unique learning experience she gained at NASA, Hauslein said she really enjoyed studying the history of space exploration and touring all the launch pads and buildings at the Kennedy Space Center. Hauslein said her favorite part of the summer was watching a space shuttle launch from three miles away, the closest distance allowable during launch. " It was amazing to see the shuttle lift off the ground, feeling the sound waves from the engines shaking the ground and my body, watching the shuttle slowly disappear into the atmosphere leaving behind only a trail of smoke, " Hauslein said. Hauslein ' s summer was not solely confined to research. Living in Cape Canaveral, Florida, right off Cocoa Beach, she tried to enjoy herself outside of the lab as much as possible. " I went to the beach after work and every weekend to soak up the sun and enjoy my summer break, " Hauslein said. The most interesting thing Hauslein learned during her internship was about the future plans of NASA for further space exploration. She said that it is NASA ' s ultimate goal to make it to Mars and even further beyond, and plans for perfecting the technology necessary for that trip are already presently underway. " Currently NASA would like to go back to the moon and develop the technology that is necessary to sustain life in space for as long as two years, which is the amount of time it would take to get to Mars and back, " Hauslein said. " That means finding a way to create oxygen and water out of lunar regolith (moon dirt) from the surface of the moon, and create stable structures that can withstand the destructive regolith that is blown during launching and landing rockets on the moon.

For three months, July through September, he traveled all over South Africa. Nesbitt didn ' t do a typical internship, confined to a stuffy office, behind a computer from nine to five. His office was the African desert where the suits and ties were traded for hunting camouflage. Nesbitt interned with a hunting safari. He heard about the internship through a family friend that had hunted in Africa seven times with this company. They were able to set him up with an interview at the Dallas Safari Show. " I ' ve wanted to do it for years and I thought it would be the experience of a lifetime to work with a hunting safari. " Nesbitt said. " Especially, for a person that likes the outdoors as much as I do. " Nesbitt ' s day to day jobs varied, but for the most part, he just did anything they asked him to do. He had to be the first one to wake up each morning to make the coffee and help get breakfast ready. Then while everyone would eat, he would load up the trucks with all of their gear for a day of hunting. During the day, he would assist with the hunting and he also filmed many of the hunts. " At night when we got back I was basically a bartender and I also helped out with dinner. I was the last person to go to bed, " Nesbitt said. Nesbitt ' s favorite part about his internship was hunting elephants in the marsh in Botswana. He got to see over 200 elephants along with numerous hippos and crocodiles. " Something about being in the water made it fun, " Nesbitt said. " We were a two hour boat ride deep into the marsh, so it was very far from the nearest civilization. " Living in Africa for those three monthshumbled Nesbitt, which was not something he expected to happen as a result of his trip. " I learned how fortunate we are to live in America, " Nesbitt said. " It ' s very hard to understand the extreme poverty until you see it with you own eyes. I also learned a lot about the African culture. A lot of the guys I worked with were from the Zulu tribe. I learned a lot about Africa from those guys. They spoke some broken English and they taught me the basic Zulu words I needed to know to get by. They really took me under their wing. If it wasn ' t for them I probably wouldn ' t have made it the whole time. It was amazing to see how happy those guys were, even though they were living in such poverty. " ' We were a two hour boat ride deep into the marsh, so it was very far from the nearest civilization. " Garrett Nesbitt the ole miss 085 " The opposite of love is not hate. It is indifference ...

Elie Wiesel is the author of a popularized memoir Night. He is one of the few living survivors of the holocaust, and one of the even fewer survivors of the well known concentration camp Auschwitz. After being released from the concentration camp, Wiesel made it his life goal to stand by people who are being discriminated against. While addressing the students and faculty of the University of Mississippi, Wiesel lectured on accepting differences and withdrawing from violence. Along with becoming a lifelong activist, Wiesel has also taught at Boston University, and been honored as a Nobel Laureate. Wiesel urged students and faculty to stand up for people who are being harmed and punished for various reasons, and he reminded students that wars and civil rights movements began and ended because of universities in the United States. the ole miss 087 Semester in Story and Photography contributed by: Vince Chamblee Throughout my tenure as a student at the University of Mississippi, I ' ve been given numerous opportunities to travel around the globe, study at some of the world ' s most eminent academic institutions, and experience other cultures that have enlightened my understanding of what it means to be an American and a citizen in an ever-evolving global community. But I ' ve yet to find a place quite like Edinburgh. The pictures, the postcards, and the countless pieces of literature written by the bards of Scotland simply cannot communicate the breadth of my experiences. It is impossible to become fully cultivated to the experience of Edinburgh without becoming engulfed by the unfailing 30 degree weather (when it ' s supposed to be snowing, but it only rains), the centuries-old cathedrals, the tartan-clad Scots, the bagpipes, the kilts, Burns nights, haggis, the Highlands, the castles, and of course the Elephant House cafe, where a homeless J.K. Rowling found her inspiration to write Harry Potter in a back room overlooking Edinburgh Castle. I remain baffled, humbled, and honored to have been given the opportunity to study at the University of Edinburgh — a University renowned throughout the world for the development, in intellect and character, of its students since its establishment in 1583, and one whose student newspaper was established by Robert Louis Stevenson and whose list of other notable alumni would include the names of Sir Walter Scott, Alexander Graham Bell, David Hume, and Charles Darwin. After a month at the University of Edinburgh, I came to recognize history ' s two predominant methods for studying Scotland, its government, and its people — the historical- political and the cultural — both overwhelmingly focusing on Scotland as something of the past and rarely something of the present. Yet, when I entered Parliament for the first time and saw the emblem of the Scottish Parliament written in traditional Scottish Gaelic as ' Parlamaid na h-Alba ' , I " I remain baffled, humbled, and honored to have been given the opportunity to study at the University of Edinburgh " Vince Chamblee understood that the historical-political could never be separ ated from the cultural. In reality, both of them, together, have created a society in Scotland quite distinct from that of its southern neighbor and formed the foundation of a government, for the first time in 300 years, in control of its own destiny. After emailing all of my friends to show off my new email address, I began my work as a Parliamentary Assistant to MSPs Rob Gibson and Dave Thompson, both members of Scotland ' s current governing party, the Scottish National Party (SNP). Quite the opposite of the conventional intern experience I had initially feared — that of becoming well-acquainted with the Parliament ' s first-floor coffee shop and developing an infallible proficiency with the community Xerox — my first task involved writing an op-ed on the privatization of Royal Mail that became featured in newspapers across Scotland. Building upon this first task, my responsibilities grew and i ncluded everything from traveling by train to campaign in an election in the northern Highlands to attending the SNP ' s national conference in Glasgow. Alongside my increased involvement in daily Parliamentary activities — preparing speeches, performing public consultations in the MSPs ' respective constituencies, and attending hearings of the Transport, Infrastructure, and Climate Change Committee — came increased privileges. I was provided with a keycard which gave me 24-hour access to the Parliament and allowed me (along with the Starbuck ' s located on the Royal Mile) to work late hours on my final research contribution — Sustaining Scotland: An Analysis of the Technical and Economic Viability for Conversion to Wind Energy. Unbeknownst to me, that research, the MSPs would later tell me, was used in the formation of the Climate Change (Scotland) Act of 2009, the world ' s most progressive example of climate change legislation. 088 the o e miss [ T I e o e m ss J I HII V awl • m Has H ixBtm M 1 ■ Ill £% Y., I Story by: Holly Reeves Photography by: Ignacio Murillo America has definitely evolved from the " Rosie the Riveter " era when ninety percent of women were engineers; however, we are now in the midst of a time were just one quarter of collegiate women explore degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

" I also want to thank my friends who have continually encouraged me throughout this process and built me up. Also, I can ' t thank the girls enough from my sorority of Tri Delta for all of their hard work, dedication, love, and sweet servant hearts. They make me want to be a better servant to others in everything I do because of their actions. I also want to thank everyone at Ole Miss, faculty and staff, students, and everyone in between for giving me so many opportunities and being so kind. They are the ones that make Ole Miss more than just a university to attend. They have made this place a home for me and have reached out their arms like a welcoming family. I only wish I can give back to everyone as much as they have given me. Lastly, I want to thank my sweet Heavenly Father for loving me enough to send his only Son to die for all of us when we didn ' t deserve it. Everything I have or have done is because of God.

We have been participants in many memorable moments in the history of our University Our class was instrumental in organizing and hosting the 2008 Presidential Debate, showing the nation the true identity of the University of Mississippi. We have made our mark nationally with championship athletics. We have proudly presented a Truman Scholar and a Rhodes Scholarship finalist. Our class has played an integral role in building a Green Initiative and establishing a bike share system. We have created programs that allow for the students ' voices to be heard in campus dialogue as well as statewide concerns. This Class of 2010 is a class of leaders. Even from my first days at Ole Miss, I knew that I was a part of an exceptional group — a class that would make effective change during our college careers and in the years that follow. I am thankful for the privilege to be a member of this class, for the outstanding leaders it has fostered, and for the immense work these leaders have done in the life of our University. The motto for the Class of 2010 is " Ole Miss, Our Future. " Ole Miss has prepared us for our futures; and we, in turn, are an important building block in Ole Miss ' s future. We will send well-equipped graduates to be leaders in the arts, in the sciences, in business, in policy, and in international relations. Members of our class will be leaders all over the world. I am proud to be a part of this University of Mississippi Class of 2010. May God bless the Class of 2010, and may God bless the University of Mississippi. Sincerely, 00 the ole miss Senior Class President To my Ole Miss Family, Reflecting over the four years that I have spent at what I have come to know as Ole Miss, I must say that my time here truly mirrors the new campaign that the university has launched entitled " experience amazing. " Taking a small town boy from Guntown, MS and providing access for him to travel to South Africa, meet Colin Powell, experience a presidential debate, and being interviewed by CNN and the New York Times can only be wrapped up in one word: amazing. However, all of these unique occurrences only accentuate my Ole Miss experience; they are not the defining moments of what makes this institution so special to me. Honestly, I had no idea that I would be in the position that I am in today. However, during the first semester of my junior year, I realized that I wanted to be Associated Student Body President to give back to an institution that has given so much to me. As a freshman, when seniors made statements like the one I previously made, I honestly laughed at them. I wondered how an individual could be so tied to this university — mean this campus is only buildings. As I progressed through my college career, I stopped laughing as I started to have such a deep appreciation for the transformation that Ole Miss was giving me. Ole Miss is more than buildings— it is the people and indescribable atmosphere that only Mr. Frank Everett can only seem to capture. Frank Everett states: There is a valid distinction between The University and Ole Miss even though the separate threads are closely interwoven. The University is buildings, trees and people. Ole Miss is mood, emotion and personality. One is physical, and the other is spiritual. One is tangible, and the other intangible. The University is respected, but Ole Miss is loved. The University gives a diploma and regretfully terminates tenure, but one never graduates from Ole Miss. Being surrounded by the remarkable people here at the university has truly enriched me academically, professionally, and personally I am eternally grateful to the many people who have shaped me into the man I am in today. Chancellor Jones, Mr. Lee Tyner, Mr. Gotshall, Dr. Haws, Dr. Sullivan-Gonzalez, Dr. Glisson, Dr. Cole, Dr. Ross, Dr. Fant, Dr. Young-Minor, Mr. Jim Morrison, Mrs. Joann Associated Student Body President Artair Rogers Edwards, Mrs. Jennifer Taylor, and, of course, Mrs. Val Ross, I want to personally thank you for taking such a special interest in my life. Words cannot express my gratitude for all that you have done for me. It is people like you that make Ole Miss so special. We have many administrators, faculty, and staff that diligently work to make the lives of a student better. I encourage all Ole Miss students to reach out to all of Ole Miss because Ole Miss will definitely reach back out to you. This university will impart into your lives tools and life lessons that will truly last a lifetime. These priceless lessons will inevitably take you to the next level while still maintaining what this world needs: a servant ' s heart. Always keeping a servant ' s heart is the most important lesson that I have learned throughout my experience here. Recognizing the importance of serving is what drives me and keeps me motivated. I challenge everyone to fulfill their calling of being a servant for others. I believe Martin Luther King Jr. describes servitude well by stating that an individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. Thus, I challenge all of you to give back— whether it ' s to your community, state, or nation. Please do not forget to serve here at our home, too. This university continuously progresses; and we, as students, have a duty to better this great institution. Without change, we are stagnant. We should never settle for less but always prepare for greater. We have something special here at Ole Miss, and we all contribute to its excellence. Thank you everyone for allowing me to be a part of this community. I am eternally grateful to all of you for making this stage of my life one that I will remember forever. Thank you all and I truly love you all, President of the Associated Student Body the ole miss 101 1 02 the ole miss Story by: Katherine Johnson A night of glitz and glamour ended in the crowning of University of Mississippi ' s Most Beautiful on November 4, 2009 at the Ford Center. The annual Parade of Beauties was presented by the Student Programming Board. Attendance was high as people came to watch their favorite girl take her turn on the stage. Crystal Ausburn won the coveted title competing against 88 other beautiful girls. The junior marketing communications major from Olive Branch remained humble as she basked in all her glory. " I am so honored and so thankful to all the people who helped me do this, " Ausburn said. The evening began with a musical number that featured the girls all walking across stage to the Black Eyed Peas song " I Gotta Feeling. " An interview earlier in the day decided 10% of the scores. The rest of the scores came from each girl walking out individually on stage where she posed for the audience and the judges. Shortly after all the girls made their appearances, Top 25 was announced. These ladies were Elizabeth Huff, Ann Turner Perry, Jessie Tretbar, Sarah Eaton, Jacqueline Taylor, Erin Hurt, Ashley Stewart, Christy Sims, Mariah Ellis, Anna Pearson, Adrian Turner, Chase Wilson, Megan Hanna, Morgan Roark, Crystal Ausburn, Natalie Padial, Marianna Breland, Robin Walker, Brittany Norman, Elizabeth Conner, Britton Yerger, Anna Katherine Stuart, Betsy Lynch, Regan Looser, and Haley Wiggins. All previous scores were cleared and the ladies got the opportunity to show off one more time before the announcement of Top 1 1 . The top 1 1 included Sarah Eaton, Jacqueline Taylor, Mariah Ellis, Anna Pearson, Adrian Turner, Megan Hanna, Marianna Breland, Elizabeth Conner, Anna Katherine Stuart, Regan Looser, and Haley Wiggins. Next was the moment everyone had been waiting for, the announcement of Most Beautiful 2009, Crystal Ausburn. Emelia Wilson, a junior public policy leadership and business administration double major from Gulfport and one of the directors of pageants for the Student Programming Board, said that the pageant couldn ' t have gone smoother. Contestant Johnna McDougal, sophomore pharmacy major from Booneville, reflects on the night. " It was a lot of fun meeting all the girls and dressing up. " Entertainment during the pageant included Alex McLelland serenading the crowd with a rendition of " Pretty Woman " and a slideshow of the 2008 Parade of Beauties presented by Brand Marketing. Patrons included The Mississippi Cheese Straw Factory, Rebel Rags, The Trophy Shop, and University Florist. After many long hours and hard work from the Student Programming Board and the contestants, the night culminated in Most Beautiful 2008 Heather Jamison passing the crown down to Ausburn.

As she heard her name being called out, she was reminded of the goal she had set for herself as a freshman, to claim the title of Miss University. After four years, that dream had finally come true. Though it may seem like pageants are all glitz and glamour, a lot of hard work goes into preparing for these events. The Miss University pageant, a preliminary for Miss Mississippi, involves a swimsuit, evening gown, talent and interview portion, so participants endure months of preparation leading up to the event. Beard, nutrition and dietetics major from Madison, said that preparing for the Miss University pageant was one of the most difficult things she has ever done. " I had to work out to be in shape for the swimsuit portion of competion, as well as practice my ballet en pointe for the talent portion, " she said. " I also had to keep up with current events for the ten minute interview, and all this while I was taking 18 hours of classes. " Besides winning the crown and getting the opportunity to represent the university her senior year, Beard also received $2,000 in scholarships. She competed with seven other contestants, winning the interview portion and tying in the evening gown event. Crystal Flores, sophomore communicative sciences and disorders major from Brandon, won first alternate and received $1,000 in scholarship money. She also won the talent competition and tied in the swimwear and evening gown rounds. Ashley Forrester, sophomore psychology and theatre major from Holly Springs, was chosen as second alternate and received $500 in scholarships. As Miss University, Beard had the chance to speak at several university functions and was able to represent Ole Miss at meetings, fundraisers and events throughout her reign. She also continued to work with her platform by volunteering at the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children and raising money for the Children ' s Miracle Network. Beard said that she feels very strongly about girls being involved in pageants. " I believe pageants can be very beneficial to young women because it can provide them with poise, confidence, a drive to be successful and most importantly scholarship money. They empower young women to strive to achieve their personal best. " From the moment she was crowned Miss University, Beard said that she knew she wanted to make a difference on the Ole Miss campus. " I feel like I have done this by supporting the university in different ways, " she said. " Whether it was speaking to an alumni group, planning and assisting with fundraisers, or attending sporting events, I feel like I have represented the University of Mississippi to the best of my ability. " When asked to reflect on her long awaited reign as Miss University, Beard said it has been a year she will never forget. " I have been humbled by this wonderful opportunity, " Beard said. " I could not have done it all without the help of my wonderful director, Jennifer Taylor. She helped keep me organized and was great at giving pep talk throughout the year. Representing the University of Mississippi has been a privilege, and I loved every minute of my year of service.

Story by: Amber Ward Photography by: Kory Drahos Homecoming week is always an exciting time that brings students, alumni, families and friends together, and instills a sense of pride in anyone connected to Ole Miss. This year homecoming followed a disappointing loss to Alabama the week before, but as Monday came to kick off the week, spirits were high and everyone was looking forward to the Saturday ahead. There were plenty of things for students, faculty and the Oxford community to do. The week began on Sunday with a concert in the Grove where The Blues Travelers Band performed. Monday, student were given the opportunity to customize their own wristband, and on that night there was a large crowd for pizza and Monday Night Football in the Union ' s Southern Breeze. On Tuesday, students enjoyed live music at Union Unplugged, and later that evening, were given the chance to compete in a Texas Hold ' em Tournament. Wednesday marked the half way point until the homecoming game against University of Alabama at Birmingham, and there was a game show called Mania and Money Machine played in the Union. Activities began to pick up for the weekend on Thursday with a rock climbing wall and shooting range set up in front of the union. Later that night the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was shown free for students in the Turner Center. The homecoming parade took place on Friday afternoon. The parade is always a huge event for students and Oxford residents. People lined the parade route to watch the floats go by, the Courthouse Square was filled with spectators crowding the sidewalks and filling the balconies awaiting the arrival of the floats. The parade was followed by a pep rally on the square. All of this was just a precursor to the Saturday event, the football game. In typical fashion, the Grove was filled with people before noon, even though the game did not begin until 6:00 p.m. Ole Miss went on to defeat UAB 48-1 3, redeeming themselves for their devastating loss to Alabama and creating a more than perfect end to yet another Ole Miss homecoming. 110 the ole miss Freshmen Maid Kimberly Dandridge Escorted by Colin Moleton Freshmen Maid Danielle Smith Escorted by Taylor Hashman Sophomore Maid Hailey Nutt Escorted by Zach Graham t ■ ■ Q0N 1 VV Sophomore Maid Robin Walker Escorted by Matt Daniels Junior Maid Hannah Neely Escorted by Bryce Willen Junior Maid Hanna Nutt Escorted by Lee Ellis Moore Senior Maid Beth Aiken Escorted by Chris Bush Senior Maid Leighanne Pegues Escorted by Eniel Polynice Senior Maul Amber Marie Tramp Escorted 03 ' Tim Ferguson the ole miss 111 The Mar cus Elvis Taylor Memorial Scholarship Medal is awarded to no more than 1 percent of the student body each year.

On January 22, 2010, ten university students were honored by being inducted into the 2009-2010 Hall of Fame. Selection into this exclusive group, which houses famous and successful alumni, was based upon scholarship, leadership, community service, and potential success. by many before me, and many yet to come — and as a firm handshake from the University preceding my graduation this May, letting me know that I ' ve been entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring its continued success. " -VinceChamblee " Remember to be thankful for those around you and never forget that ' community ' has no boundaries. For me, receiving this honor is a tribute to the community of Ole Miss. Without the support of family, friends, faculty and administrators over the past five years, I would not have been able to reach out to those in the Mid-South and global community. As I walk away from this chapter of my life, I am thankful for the blessing of being a part of the Ole Miss community, and I will treasure this gift forever. " - Patrick Woodyard " I am honored to be inducted into the University of Mississippi Hall of Fame, particulary because the university has given so much to me. Being a member of this special group is so humbling, but this honor continues to remind me that we are all called to serve. I pray that God allows me to contine to serve Photography by: Addison Dent and enables me to impact the lives of others. Thank you, Ole Miss, for instilling within me the importance of a servants heart. " -Artair Roger " I have thoroughly enjoyed my Ole Miss experience and will be sad when it comes to an end in May. I just hope that I might have left a tiny fraction of the impact that those who received this honor before me made in my life. " -Richard Mckay " To begin, I have had an awesome four years here at the university. I feel like by being a student at Ole Miss that I have been offered an array of opportunities that at one time would have been beyond my wildest dreams. Through out my years here at the university, I have spent a fair share of my time here at Ole Miss trying to contribute to the university leaving a legacy for future students to reap the benefit from for years to come. I am truly humbled by the honor of being inducted into the University of Mississippi ' s Hall of Fame and glad to say that I have experienced amazing at Ole Miss.

It was quite an experience. I walked on to this campus not knowing what to except. I was excited, yet a bit nervous to begin this new journey of my life. It felt so strange to leave my comfort zone at home and start fresh with new friends and a whole new environment. I was very involved in high school and had a full resume when I first came to college, so I was hoping to come on to campus and get right to work. But it wasn ' t that easy. I didn ' t know what or who to ask about becoming involved, and at first I felt o ut of place. I started to question whether I had made the right decision by coming to Ole Miss. But now more than ever, it ' s clear to me that Ole Miss is my home. I started off freshman year by moving into Stewart Hall. I was so excited about moving out of my parent ' s house and being on my own. I thought that being on my own was the greatest thing in the world, but it ' s actually not all it ' s cracked up to be. I missed my family like crazy! My little sister means a lot to me, even though we fight constantly, so not living under the same roof as her really took some getting used to. After moving in, my first instinct was to get out and stay up as late as I could, so I did just that. I stayed up till 6 a.m. just because I knew I could. Not such a good idea when when I had an 8 o ' clock class. I soon learned that college classes were no joke and that my main purpose for being here was to get an education; the last thing I wanted was for my parents to come help me move back home! I became actively involved in various student " I decided that I was going to go outside of my comfort zone my freshman year and do something out of the ordinary. " organizations on campus such as UM Mock Trial Association, Baptist Student Union, Phi Alpha Delta, UM Housing Ambassador, Freshman Focus, Tau Beta Sigma National Band Sorority and ONE Mississippi. One organization that stood above the rest and enabled me to find my place on campus was The University of Mississippi Marching Band, " The Pride of the South " . I came to campus early for band camp, which allowed me to meet friends who I have grown to love and share lots of memories with. The University of Mississippi Band is a great organization that allows each individual to express themselves through music. My band director, David Wilson, gave me advice and encouragement that helped me survive my freshman year. I decided that I was going to go outside of my comfort zone my freshman year and do something out of the ordinary. I wanted to challenge myself, so I decided to run for the Freshman Homecoming Maid. I was very excited to meet new people, and it was another way for me to get involved on campus. On election day, I was nervous but also excited because I knew I had given the campaign my all. When they announced my name as the 2009-201 Freshman Homecoming Maid, I wanted to cry. This was just one of the many great experiences I ' ve had here at Ole Miss. I will always remember the people I met my freshman year and all the connections I made. My freshman year has been the foundation of what is going to be a great college career. I ' m excited about my future here as an Ole Miss Rebel and I look forward to continuing to grow as a person. 1 40 the ole miss the ole miss 1 41 SOPHOMORES EVOLUTION OF TRANSPORTATION BY: CAITLIN WILKERSON WAY BACK WHEN CARS WERE ONCE LIKE HOUSES.

Balancing my school work, social life and sleep became harder with each passing day. It was a trying time. I finally finished my pre-requisites and got into the heart of my engineering courses. That change alone took away most of the free time I had been enjoying; however, I was getting more involved on campus, joining two more organizations that required a lot of my time. Just like that, I went from having plenty of time to hang out with the friends I made during during my exciting year in Stockard and Martin, to just trying to squeeze out 5 hours of sleep a night. My friends were always surprised when they actually got a chance to see me around campus because I went from being with them all the time, to seeing them when I was running from a meeting, to class, or to work. Regardless of the lack of sleep and busy schedule, I don ' t regret any of my sophomore year. I learned a lot, from time management (a must if you want to survive in college), to learning that Einstein Bros, is the best place to eat on campus. It was definitely a challenge, but I met it head on and made it out alive. " Regardless of the lack of sleep and busy schedule, I don ' t regret any of my sophomore year..

I was a junior now, no longer an underclassman, but not yet scrambling to get all the necessary graduation requirements completed. I understood that my time as a student was in the final stages of this race towards a degree, and if I was serious about stepping out into the real world in a couple of years, then now was the time to focus and prepare myself for what lie ahead. I had finally settled into a major. I was finally through with the generic course sequences that had plagued me during my first two years of college, but my classes had gotten increasingly more difficult and demanding. Gone were the days of showing up to class with a DM or checking Facebook to pass the time. Class now required effort. It required more participation and critical thought. It required much more reading and a vast amount of writing; however, as the workload of my classes increased, I found that my aptitude and ability to meet these challenges had increased as well. Perhaps I had been getting a quality education all along. Perhaps my professors had been preparing me for something beyond next week ' s quiz or a final exam, months in the distance. Throughout this year, I ' ve felt I was changing, evolving as a student and as a person, and it seemed as if my future was no longer a faint light at the end of a tunnel. It was quickly approaching, and I realized the time to prepare myself was now. As my year progressed, I realized that it was time to get serious about my post-undergraduate plans, and I knew I needed to pursue a higher form of education if I was to become competitive in an increasingly global world. I had put a great deal of thought into law school, envisioning myself as some sort of champion of civil liberty and justice, but I also understood the undertaking that lawschool required to be admitted. I decided that this was the year to begin preparations for the mountain that was, and still is, the LSAT, and I made the commitment to focus a substantial portion of my time towards it. While this year has flown by quickly, I think, above anything else, that it will be the determining year of my college career. My freshman and sophomore years were a time of establishing independence and discovering what I enjoyed in life, and I believe my senior year will be filled with countless deadlines that never cease to end; however, this year I have settled into a field of study, clearly defined my expectations and goals and plotted a course to reach those aspirations. This year, my junior year, could quite possibly be the momentous turning point of my college and young adult life.

Along with being a full-time student, staying actively involved in her sorority, Delta Gamma, and working on her honors thesis, Flint single-handedly began the " Benefit for Babies " concert, raising awareness and money for the North Mississippi chapter of the March of Dimes. The March of Dimes is an organization that is dedicated to improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Flint said that she had a personal interest in the organization because some of her family members were born prematurely and one of her family members was a miracle baby. " I decided when I got to college I wanted to focus on and try to make a difference in an organization that I really cared about, and the March of Dimes is the thing that i ' ve always felt most strongly about. " Since there was no March of Dimes presence on campus, Flint decided to do something to raise awareness and involvement in this organization. As an avid music listener and someone who recognizes the importance of the music scene here in Oxford, she thought a benefit concert would be the best way to get the word out to people. She started the benefit concert during the fall of 2009 and has held the event the following two fall semesters. " The first year was very difficult, " Flint said. " I didn ' t really know what I was doing, so I put much more effort into the planning and preparation. " The process included writing a sponsor letter, working out specific details with the March of Dimes to make sure she did not break any rules, contacting people for advertisements, finding a venue for the event, securing sound equipment and bands and several other things involving planning. " The second and third years were much easier, " Flint said. " Since I already had some contact names and experience in advertising, I could focus on expanding the event and saving money. " Flint also mentioned that she was fortunate enough to find bands the second and third year who donated their services and a sound equipment store that donated the equipment. " This saved me a considerable amount of money, " Flint said. Another addition to the second and third year ' s was a silent auction. Flint went to several stores and collected items for donations. During the event, people who attended could bid on items and the highest bidder at the end of the night received the item. Flint said that while it was important to her to raise as much money as possible, her primary objective was to raise awareness about premature birth. " It is such a huge problem in Mississippi, " Flintsaid. " Since most women in college are beginning to start families in the near future, raising awareness on a college campus seems very logical. There are things that women can do when they are pregnant to diminish the chances of having a premature baby and they need to know these things. " Flint ' s duties during her three years of doing work for the March of Dimes included, but were not limited to, organizing a student support group, securing bands, silent auction items and corporate sponsors, managing the design and sales of t-shirts promoting the events, organizing advertising both campus-wide and throughout Oxford, making phone calls to donors and volunteers, sending emails, handling print mail-outs, developing campus radio and news [ station coverage and coordinating all aspects of the events. " I decided when I got to college I wanted to focus on and try to make a difference in an organization that I really cared about, and the March of Dimes is the thing that I ' ve always felt most strongly about.

Evidence of the genuine service rendered by the Cardinal Club is the many worthwhile gifts and enduring monuments on the University of Mississippi campus. The giving of such a gift to the University is an annual practice of the Club. Funds for their useful donation are acquired from the popular Cardinal Club dances following big campus football games. The Cardinal Club was re-chartered in 2009 with the purpose to create the best game day atmosphere, positively support Ole Miss Athletics, and organize Pep Rallies, Rebel Road trips, and pre-game events. The organization ' s mission is to increase school spirit, heighten awareness for all Ole Miss sports, and boost energy and excitement for Ole Miss athletics.

While the Rebels didn ' t capture an elusive Southeastern Conference championship, Ole Miss finished with a 9-4 record including a victory in the AT T Cotton Bowl. Ole Miss opened the season with a 45-14 victory over the Memphis Tigers, with the Rebels scoring 28 points Dexter McCluster uses agility to break past the Ok! ;. defenders as he sprints to the t Photography 1a : Nick Toi e in the fourth quarter to secure the victory. As the Rebels prepared for their first home game against Southeastern Louisiana, it was apparent that the team was suffering from the swine flu. " They hadn ' t practiced all week, " head coach Houston Nutt said. " You could tell they hadn ' t been running. Some of them were still coughing. They were just a little sluggish. With a No. 4 national ranking, the Rebels traveled to unranked South Carolina where Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead showed that he wouldn ' t be able to live up to his effort during the 2008 season. Snead managed only 107 yards passing and one touchdown as Ole Miss dropped a 16-10 decision to the Gamecocks in Columbia, S.C. on national television. After a victory at Vanderbilt, Ole Miss squared off against eventual national champions Alabama. The Rebels only managed to score three points as Snead threw four interceptions in a 22-3 loss. After the loss, Nutt credited the Crimson Tide with being the best defense that Ole Miss had faced all season. " This is the fastest defense, one through 11, defensive backs to corners to safeties to linebackers to defensive linemen, this is the best, " Nutt said. " The best I ' ve seen is Alabama. " Against Nutt ' s former team, Arkansas, the Rebels found an identity on offense.

McCluster accumulated 123 rushing yards and 137 receiving yards as the Rebels routed Arkansas by a score of 30-17. " Coach Nutt asked me if I was ready to carry the load and I told him I was, " McCluster said. " All he did was give me a smile. I tried to not get too excited, but I called everyone I knew when I got home and told them to get ready. I was very excited that coach Nutt gave me this opportunity. " While McCluster ' s performance against Arkansas was eye opening, his effort against the Tennessee Volunteers was one of the most impressive individual performances of 2009 in all of college football. McCluster ' s 324 total yards and four touchdowns against Tennessee set an all-time single game record for yardage in a contest. After the contest, Volunteer defensive end Chris Walker said that McCluster was the best player that Tennessee had played all year. " He ' s by far the best player we ' ve played all year, " Walker said. " There are some great players down at Florida, down at Alabama. This kid just absolutely did what he wanted to on us. It ' s something that we ' re not proud of on defense, but you have to give props where props are due. He ' s a really good player. " orography by: Nick Toce The Rebels then escaped Oxford with a 25-23 victory over arch-rival Louisiana State University when the Tigers ran out of time inside of the Ole Miss red zone with seconds to play. Ole Miss traveled to Mississippi State with dreams of a Capitol One Bowl berth, but had those dreams squashed as the Bulldogs defeated the Rebels 41-27 in Starkville, Miss. The Rebels were rewarded for their eight wins during the regular season play with a visit to the Cotton Bowl against the Oklahoma State Cowboys. After a combined 1 1 turnovers between the two teams, Ole Miss defeated the Cowboys by a score of 21-7 thanks in part to 1 84 yards rushing and two touchdowns by McCluster in his final game as a Rebel. Nutt said he was impressed with the Rebel ' s victory although Ole Miss failed to produce much offense outside of McCluster. " I ' m really proud of our team, " Nutt said. " It ' s hard to win back-to-back Bowls. It ' s very difficult. We have excellent preparation. I was really disappointed offensively, shaking my head for about three- quarters. But our defense, our defense, our defense was just outstanding. " While the Rebels were unable to parlay 2009 into an SEC Championship season, Ole Miss ended the year with a second consecutive Cotton Bowl win heading into 2010.

Good poise, flawless technique and the right amount of sparkle. As a part of the Ole Miss Spirit Squad, the Rebelettes are responsible for keeping the crowd pumped and the beat fresh during football and basketball games. It takes dedication and talent to bring new and exciting dance routines to each performance and to keep the crowd motivated and entertained. Being a Rebelette takes self-discipline and sacrifice. It is a yearlong commitment and the season begins shortly after auditions. Throughout the year, Rebelettes spend approximately 1 2 hours a week practicing on top of performances, morning workouts and conditioning. At a typical football game, the Rebelettes perform at the pre-game Grove pep rally, dance on the sidelines, and perform with the Pride of the South Marching Band at halftime. Only the best are recruited, so auditions to become an Ole Miss Rebelette are rigorous. It is a two-day process in which dancers learn a routine and are judged on their technique and performance. A cut is made on the first day. Dancers are then judged on a new routine and physical fitness on the second day. The girls who make the cut earn the title of Ole Miss Rebelette. In the fall, the Rebelettes begin preparing for a national competition held in January in Orlando, Fla. The work is hard, and high kicks, pirouettes, calypso leaps, and fouette turns are just the beginning of it. Well-known for their talent, the Rebelettes are the official dance team of the University of Mississippi, so the pressure is on to be top-notch performers. Their hard work paid off at this year ' s UDA College Dance Team Championship. The Ole Miss Rebelettes had their best showing in years as they competed against the top dance troupes in the nation. " They only took 14 of the 26 teams to finals so we were excited that we were ranked 1 1th after semi-finals in Jazz, " said Rebelette coach Carley Russel Cryer. " We knew we had to perform with that same intensity the next day and the girls did just that. " The Rebelettes placed 9th overall in the Jazz competition. " The 9th place finish is the highest finish of any Spirit Team since I have been here, " said Spirit Coordinator Amanda Hoppert. " That has been the goal of both the cheerleaders and the Rebelettes to place in the top 10, and we did it!

In the blazing heat and frigid chill, they are found proudly bearing the Ole Miss " M " cheering their Rebels to a victory. Whether running across the sideline waving an Ole Miss banner after a touchdown or holding up posters commanding the audience to cheer along, the Ole Miss cheerleaders prove they have spirit win or lose. As the Spirit Squad, a title they share with the Ole Miss Rebelettes, the cheerleaders are responsible for keeping the crowd on its feet and spreading Rebel spirit throughout the court or stadium; however, being an Ole Miss cheerleader is more than stunts, chants, and face paint. It takes commitment, sacrifice, and the right attitude. The squad is made up of 16 dedicated co-ed couples who practice 3 days a week on average and have separate strength building workouts. The cheerleaders work out each Monday and Wednesday morning by 6:45. The cheerleading squad is separated into two teams; the Junior Varsity team which cheers at all home football games and Women ' s basketball games, and a Varsity team that cheers at home and away football games and men ' s basketball games. Home football games are busy for the cheerleaders. From leading the pre-game pep rally in the Grove to visiting with fans, to walking with the football team through the famous Walk of Champions, the Ole Miss cheerleaders represent their school with pride. The cheerleading squad also participates in community service events. They fundraise to earn money for trips and competitions, and make special guest appearances at birthday parties of young Rebel fans. " The competition was tougher this year so we were excited to get 12th place and perform as well as we did. " Amanda Hoppert Spirit Coordinator 300 the ole miss OT SPIRIT?

After having already lost reserve guard Trevor Gaskins in the preseason to a season ending ACL injury starter Eniel Polynice was lost after only playing half of the season opener. All-SEC guard Chris Warren became the third Rebel lost to a knee injury during the waning moments of a 68-77 loss to No. 9 Louisville. Warren ' s injury was overshadowed for what happened in the early Thursday morning hours in Cincinnati before Ole Miss played the Cardinals in the Big Xll SEC showdown. Head coach Andy Kennedy was arrested and charged with aggravated assault during an argument with a local cab driver. The story would gain national media attention, but Kennedy had the support of athletic director Pete Boone and coached every game of the season. Kennedy pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct, and was only subject to a $100 fine and six months probation in April. Entering SEC play without three guards and a head coach awaiting trial one certainly couldn ' t have blamed the Rebels if their mind ' s were elsewhere than a basketball court. Ole Miss dropped the first two games in conference play with freshman Will Bogan starting at point guard as Kennedy was looking for any answer to replace Warren as the primary ball handler. All he had to was wait for Terrico White to respond. The freshman from Memphis expected to contribute a few minutes off the bench at an off-the-ball guard spot, but suddenly he found himself playing nearly 40 minutes a game at point guard, and he did not respond. White scored 22 against LSU, and would be one of nine 20+ point games in SEC as White finished fifth in scoring during conference play averaging 18.4 points per game. White went on to be named SEC freshman year, and helped lead the United States under 1 9 team to a gold medal over the summer. — — — 302 the ole miss Opposite Page: David Huertas crosses over an Alabama opponent while DeAundre Cranston and Terrico White rush down the court to help on the offensive end.

Photography by: Joseph Warner White was instrumental in keeping the Rebels competitive in SEC play as they picked up their first win over Kentucky in nine years after scoring 21 points, which included a thunderous dunk over 6-foot- 10 Wildcat forwards Patrick Patterson and Perry Stevenson to put White on the Sportscenter top 10 plays of the day. Ole Miss picked up road wins at Starkville and Fayetteville, equaling the number conference road victories in the first two years under Kennedy. It wasn ' t just the trio of Gaskins, Polynice, and Warren hit with injury. Sophomore Zach Graham partially torn his patella tendon in January, but still started 23 games while averaging a career high 8.5 points per game. Even the team ' s leading scorer, junior David Huertas spent the final three weeks of the season spending all his time off the court in a protective walking boot because of a deep bone bruise on his foot. It got to the point the wounded outnumbered healthy players during practice. Even with walk-ons Kennedy was unable to practice five on five the final month of the season. Beaten and battered the Rebels still showed resilience down the stretch. Terrico White scored 29 points and led a six-man rotation into Arkansas for a 98-91 overtime victory. Ole Miss missed a chance to finish second in the SEC West, and clinch a first round bye in the conference tournament, when they blew a late second half lead at home against Mississippi State as the attrition from the injuries began to catch up with them. If it wasn ' t apparent after the loss to the Bulldogs the loss to Kentucky in the first round of the SEC tournament proved the Rebels had run out of gas. Though the Rebels failed to earn a postseason tournament for the first time under Kennedy with a 16-15 (6-10 SEC) record the season served as valuable experience for a few. White certainly flourished with the opportunity to play point guard, and elevated his game to the notice of NBA scouts. Fellow freshman Murphy Holloway averaged 8.4 points and 6.6 rebounds per game while picking up six double-doubles. 304 the ole miss White rises over the West Virginia blocker to drain the three pointer. holography In: Joseph Warner the ole miss 305 TiT, omen ' s Hi f m H I I I I 4 ft MpM % Story by: Jason Smith Ole Miss head coach Renee Ladner continued to show that the program is heading in the right direction with a successful second season. Ladner and the Rebels advanced to the second round of the women ' s National Invitational Tournament. Ole Miss finished the season with an 18-15 record, and made its first postseason appearance since the Elite Eight run in 2007 under then head coach Carol Ross. The Rebels began the 2008-2009 campaign winning their first seven games of the season, but dropped four of their next five out of conference matchups. The Rebels would enter SEC play with an 11-4 non-conference record. Ole Miss struggled in SEC play amassing a 5-9-conference record, but Ladner ' s squad attained some key victories that propelled them into the National Invitation Tournament. The biggest win of the season came against the Vanderbilt Commodores, who were ranked No. 18 at the time. " This is the biggest win for me since I have been coaching because I have the utmost respect for Melanie Balcomb and her offensive mindset, " Ladner said. " She is a terrific coach. She does more with less, and her style of play is very difficult to defend. When you can put it together for most of the afternoon against someone of that caliber, you feel good about yourself. Most importantly you feel good about your team. " Ole Miss survived the first round of the SEC tournament by beating rival Arkansas in an eight-versus -nine matchup. Junior guard Bianca Thomas scored a then-career- high 31 points against the Razorbacks moving Ole Miss to the next round of competition against No. 6 Auburn. Thomas was named to the All-SEC team prior to the tournament. Thomas ranked third in the SEC in scoring average (15.4 points per game) and scored in double figures in 24 of the Rebels 29 games. " I am extremely happy for Bianca because she was most deserving of this award, " Ladner said. " Through hard work and dedication, she has emerged as one of our best offensive players. She carried us on her back all season and 306 the ole miss T Contributed Photography Shantell Black, Nikki Byrd, Alliesha Easley, Shawn Goff, Whitney Hameth, Kayla Holloway, LaTosha Laws, Katorra Lewis, Kayla Melson, LaKendra Phillips, Elizabeth Robertson, Tori Slusher and Bianca Thomas. the ole miss 307 e o e miss M omen ' s was without question one of the best players in the SEC this year. " Ole Miss received another career-best performance, from Shawn Goff, but was unable to overcome the Tigers falling 71-65. " Shawn knew going in this game that Bianca Thomas was going to be shut down, " Ole Miss head coach Renee Ladner said. " That either works on your psyche one way or the other, and today she stepped up. " Goff used her performance against Auburn as motivation for her final two games in the WNIT. In their first round game against Murray State, Goff poured in 2 1 -points and game high 14 rebounds. Behind Goff ' s performance, the Rebels routed the Racers 87-49. Ole Miss traveled to Tampa for their second round game against the South Florida Bulls. Ole Miss was not able to upset the Bulls, who went on to win the tournament, but senior Shawn Goff put a fitting end to her Ole Miss career with another strong performance. Goff scored a team-high 17 points and pulled down eight rebounds. Those numbers made her the first player in school history to tally 1,000 points, 700 rebounds and 200 blocks over a career. Ladner and the Rebels were glad to return to postseason play after their one- year hiatus, and Ladner said the Rebels would use the WNIT appearance as momentum going into next season. the ole miss 309 Right: Logan Power is greeted by Matt Snyder and the rest of the Rebels after hitting a home run.

Photo by: Joseph Warner I 310 the o e miss Story by: Jacob Fuller The 2009 season started with as much promise as any in recent years as the Rebels entered the season with a veteran lineup and No. 6 national ranking. Coach Mike Bianco ' s crew got off to a rocky start and quickly fell out of the top 1 with losses to Mercer and South Alabama in the opening weekend. The Rebels fired back, though, winning 1 4 of their next 1 6 games. The SEC West ' s marquee matchup came in the last weekend in March when the No.1 1 Rebels traveled to Baton Rouge, La. to take on the No. 2 Tigers. The Rebels took the series lead on Friday with a 7-4 win. Saturday, Ole Miss put together a three-run, ninth-inning rally that fell just short and gave LSU a 6-5 victory. Both Sunday starting pitchers answered the call for their team. Ole Miss senior Scott Bittle (5-2, 2.17 era) pitched seven scoreless innings and gave up only one hit and two walks. LSU ' s Austin Ross battled the Rebels for eight innings and gave up one run on two hits. Bittle left with a 1-0 lead in after seven. Reliever Jake Morgan was unable to close out the game and series, though. The sophomore gave up two earned runs on three hits to the Tigers powerful lineup in the bottom of the eighth. The Rebels could not answer in the ninth, and dropped the series to their rivals 2-1 . Ole Miss won 24 of their next 31 including series wins over then-ranked No. 20 Florida, No. 1 Georgia and No. 16 Arkansas. They finished the regular season with a record of 40-1 5, 20-10 in the SEC, and shared the SEC Western Division crown with eventual National Champion LSU. The biggest loss of the season for the Rebels came in the opening weekend of May. Bittle, a consensus preseason All-American, was scheduled to start against Auburn in his usual Sunday slot, but was unable to go at game time. Bittle started the season at closer but moved to starter when the Rebels were unable to find another solid Sunday starter. The strain of pitching seven-plus innings took its toll on him, though, and he was not able to return to the mound after his April 26 win over Georgia due to shoulder pain that plagued the last month of his collegiate career. Senior Brett Bukvich (9-3, 4.42) was moved into the weekend rotation with Bittle on the bench. Bukvich went 2-1 in the regular season after taking over for Bittle, but the Rebels would miss the 2008 Ferris Award winner dearly when the po stseason came around. Bukvich would also miss much of the postseason with an injury, leaving the Rebels with only three starting pitchers: Drew Pomeranz, Phillip Irwin, and Nathan Baker. Ole Miss took a No. 7 ranking into the SEC Tournament. The trip to Hoover, Ala. held hopes not only of an SEC Championship but also of a top eight national seed in the NCAA Tournament. Neither was in the cards for the Rebels, though. The Rebels were out of the conference tournament after consecutive losses to Georgia (6-3) and Florida (12-2) to start the week. Despite the poor showing in Hoover, the Rebels were selected to host their fourth NCAA Regional in five years. Pomeranz picked up the win in game one for the Rebels as Ole Miss moved on to day two with an 8-1 win over Monmouth. Irwin pitched 6.2 innings in game two and allowed four runs, three earned, on 1 1 hits and tallied the win over Western Kentucky. The Hilltoppers came back with a 10-9 win on Sunday to force a final game of the Oxford Regional the next day. With seniors Bittle and Bukvich both injured, Bianco turned to Pomeranz on just two days rest to keep the ole miss 311 the Rebels ' season alive. The sophomore turned in a performance no witness will soon forget. He tied the school record with 1 6 strikeouts in a complete game and allowed only one unearned run on two hits and one walk. " We felt it, knew it, " Bianco said, " that he was that type of guy who could give you that Curt Schilling, bloody-sock performance that people would remember for the rest of their lives. A legendary performance by Drew Pomeranz. " With the win, the Rebels earned a third NCAA Super Regional in Oxford in five years. The opponent on docket was No. 5 Virginia. The Rebels turned to Irwin to start the series and the junior pitched seven innings and gave up three runs on nine hits. The Rebels and Cavs looked as evenly matched as possible, and the game was knotted up at three after nine innings. After a 12 innings pitching dual, it took heroics of a single hitter to end the game. Matt Smith led off the bottom of the 1 2th. He was 0-for-5 on the day. It only took one pitch to change that. The sophomore sent the first pitch of the inning deep over the left-centerfield wall for a walk-off homerun to give the Rebels the 4-3 victory. Pomeranz turned in another solid pitching performance and Logan Power added two RBIs to his Ole Miss career record Saturday, but it was not enough for the Rebels to secure a trip to Omaha. The Cavaliers scored two unearned runs in the bottom of the eighth after Ole Miss second baseman Evan Button misplayed a routine ground ball that kept the inning alive. " It was a hard hit ball, " Button said. " I make that play 99 out of 100 times. I had all day to throw it. I wish I could have it back. I feel bad for the team. " In the final game of the series, the Rebels could not get the job done at the plate. Virginia used four pitchers and held Ole Miss to one run on seven hits. The Cavaliers tallied nine hits and were unstoppable on the bases. They went 6-for-6 in stolen bases on the day, and won the game 5-1. With the win, the Cavaliers earned their first trip to the College World Series and became the fourth team in five years to defeat the Rebels in a Super Regional. Bianco said both teams fought hard all series, but in the end he had to give credit to Virginia. " At the end of the day, you tip your hat to the University of Virginia, " Bianco said. " They just played better than us. They did more to win the game and were able to put that three-run inning together. " Ten Rebels were taken in the MLB Draft after the season. Bittle led the way when the St. Louis Cardinals selected him in the fourth round. Nathan Baker, Jordan Henry, Bukvich, Irwin, and Aaron Barrett were also selected on the first day of the draft. Kyle Henson, Matt Smith, and Brett Bukvich joined the list of draft on day two. Smith and Barrett chose not to join the professional ranks and will play for the Rebels aga in in 2010. 312 the ole miss Contributed Photography Zach Miller, Evan Button, Tim Ferguson, Kevin Mort, David Goforth, Kyle Barbeck, Brett Basham, Kyle Henson, Jordan Henry, Drew Pomeranz, Taylor Hightower, Matt Smith, Cullan Kight, Scott Bittle, Logan Williams, Nathan Baker, Logan Power, Michael Hubbard, Jeremy Travis, David Phillips, Wade Broyles, Taylor Hashman, Matt Tracy, Aaron Barrett, Cliff Vaughn, Mike Snyder, Matt Snyder, Brett Bukvich, Michael Park, Phillip Irwin, Blair Wright, Brett Huber, Rory McKean, Jake Morgan, Zack Rutland and Kyle Thornton.

Photography by: Nick Toce Story by: Eric Besson The Ole Miss Rebel softball team may not have been invited to postseason play in 2009, but they were able to stay competitive in the tough Southeastern Conference. The Rebels finished 10th out of the 1 1 SEC teams with a record of 23-29 (7-20 SEC), but they went into the final weekend with a shot at making the end-of-season SEC Tournament, which only takes the top eight SEC teams. Head Coach Missy Dickerson ' s Rebels were a much better team when playing at the Ole Miss Softball Complex, but even then, they were not unbeatable. The Rebels ' road SEC record was 2-11 with one of the wins coming against South Carolina, who finished 1 1th in SEC play. At home, the Rebels were swept in three games by Florida and Alabama, but they were also able to split a two-game series against LSU and take two out of three from both Tennessee and Arkansas. Despite the apparent shortcomings, the Rebels played many exciting games in 2009. Ole Miss defeated LSU 3-2 in 1 innings for their first home SEC win when outfielder Alyssa McGovern knocked in Alise Doubt with two outs. Perhaps the most exciting game for the Rebels came in the rubber match against then No. 12 Tennessee. The Rebels persevered in a back-and-forth game that looked like it would be anything but a Rebel victory. The game was delayed for nearly two hours, and the Rebels were trailing 6-5 headed into the bottom of the seventh. Senior Lisa Conchos smashed a solo homerun to tie the game and Ashley Dowdy sent the team into a frenzy when she broke the tie and ended the game with a walk-off solo homerun. That game was the last home SEC contest for the seniors. Conchos, who hit the game-tying homerun and Michelle May ended their home careers in dramatic fashion. Shortstop Lauren Grill led the Rebels at the plate in 2009. Grill maintained a .301 batting average and led the Rebels with 10 doubles, 10 homeruns, 32 RBI and a .608 slugging percentage. Grill did not see many pitches to hit during the season as evidenced by her 23 walks in SEC play, which was good enough for second in the conference. 314 the ole miss Lauren Grill, Becky Nye, Ashley Dowdy, Alyssa McGovern, Lisa Conchos, Lauren Rowe, Courtnie Ghinaudo, Erin Faircloth, Amber Tramp, Alise Doubt, Michelle May, Molly Goza, Ally Presswood, Lindsey Perry, Randi Green, Tara Willitt, Rachel Torres and Elizabeth Holbert.

Throughout the onset of the 2009 campaign, talk was focused on the youthfulness of the squad. However, after posting a 13-6-2 record the hype has been turned towards the development of the underclassmen and the promising future of the Rebels ' soccer program. " We have set a standard, " Holeman said. " We ' ve got to where we should be and that is playing in the NCAA Tournament and playing for SEC titles. I think now that this group has achieved that they know what it takes and they are going to want more. " The group Holeman is referring to includes star freshmen Arielle Cohen, Alex Hildal and Brittany King. King received more playing time than any other player on the team recording 1,931 minutes out of a possible 1958. Cohen also made significant impact scoring three goals and tallying three assists. As a result, Cohen was named to the SEC All-Freshmen Team, the sole representative for Ole Miss. Cohen hopes her quality play on the pitch will continue into her second season as the Lady Rebels build upon the 2009 seasons successes. " I need to work hard in the offseason and build on what I have already established this year, " Cohen said. " Hopefully I will have a bigger impact on the team as a sophomore. " The team ' s chemistry also helped the Rebels in their run to the NCAA Tournament. " This was a great first season, " Cohen said. " I was really lucky that I came in, and the team was just meshing well. It was one of the best years they have had in a while so I am happy to be apart of it. " The final freshmen in the starting eleven, Alex Hildal, joined King on the back line holding opposing teams to just 14 goals on the season. Ole Miss is replacing three seniors from the 2009 team; Hannah Weatherly, Danielle Johnson and Mallory Coleman. Three players who had a significant impact on the 2009 season the Ole Miss soccer program. " They will be missed, " head coach Steve Holeman said. " The whole team loves these three.

" Coleman anchored a defense that ranked in the top 20 for goals-against average for a majority of the 2009 campaign. Her ability to control a back line featuring three underclassmen was the leadership that the largest freshmen class in program history looked to throughout the season. Weatherly led the team this year with nine goals and was rewarded as a member of the All-SEC second team. She finished her career with 21 goals tied for 10th best in program history. Johnson was named All-SEC for the fourth straight year, a honor never previously accomplished by a Lady Rebel soccer player. With the three captains graduating and moving on, Ole Miss named rising senior Taylor Cunningham and rising junior Meredith Snow team captains to lead the young Rebels. " I think that was a great choice for the two captains, " Cohen said. " They are both leaders. Even though they weren ' t captains this year everybody looked to them as leaders. They will be great captains. " Snow, a Cincinnati native, has started every game in her first two years in a Rebel uniform and is looking forward to the challenge. " I am happy about it, " Snow said. " I am definitely going to have to step out of my comfort zone more to lead and what not, but I am excited for the challenge and ready to take it on. " The graduated Johnson said that she expects the team to flourish under the leadership of Snow and Cunningham. " I expect nothing but good things from this program, " Johnson said. " I think its great that we have such a young team. I think they are only going Taylor Cunningham nods the ban a to build and bring in some great players so I expect great things push the play forward for a shot from them next year.

Highlights of the year included Southeastern Conference wins over Alabama, Arkansas and Georgia. Home court advantage proved true for the Lady Rebels with a home record of 7-8, as opposed to an away record of 1-10. The Magnolia Invitational was the Rebel ' s shining moment, winning every match played, beating teams such as Alcorn State, UM-Milwaukee, Akron, and University of Alabama at Birmingham. The Lady Rebels also won their first game this season, an away game at the Tiger Volleyball Invitation in Columbia, Missouri, beating Texas State. Unfortunately, the Rebels fell to Southeastern Conference teams Florida, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Auburn, Mississippi State and Louisiana State University.

She was named to the Southeastern Conference ' s All- Freshman team. She joins sophomore Regina Thomas from Richardson, Texas as current Rebels who have been named to the team. Thomas was selected in 2008. The Lady Rebels will be losing a large asset to their team next year in the form of Associate Head Coach Molly Alvey. Alvey will be leaving Ole Miss to pursue the Head Coach job at the University of Houston. She was instrumental in recruiting Ole Miss ' s 23rd ranked recruiting class and will be greatly missed.

So how do these Rebel athletes stay on the right the ole miss 325 ross ouniry Story by: Jason Smith The Ole Miss Cross Country team completed another successful season this past fall receiving great individual performances from the team ' s runners. The highlight of the season for Ole Miss happened on Halloween weekend when the Rebels hosted the SEC Cross Country Championships at the Ole Miss Golf Course. Torrential rains created a sloppy course, but Ole Miss junior Barnabus Kirui managed to navigate the course en route to an individual SEC Championship. Kirui finished the race with a time of 24:24.75 beating the second place Dorian Ulrey of Arkansas by nine seconds. An exhausted Kirui still managed to be all smiles as he celebrated his victory. " I am so excited and I really thank God for that, " Kirui said. " I really felt great, and it ' s the best feeling I have had to be hosting and winning. " Kirui ' s time of 24:24:75 was over 30 seconds off his championship time of 23:53. 24 in 2006, but the conditions played at the Ole Miss golf course played a major role in the high times posted by the runners. " I must say it (the course) is one of the toughest, " Kirui said. " You are never comfortable running because you have to watch where you are stepping, so it was definitely a tough course. But the thing that makes cross country special is having unpredictable scenarios on the course. " Ole Miss head coach Joe Walker said that had the course been dry the times would have been in the 23 minute range. The soggy conditions prevented the runners from running with too much confidence, especially downhill, which prevented the runners from turning it loose and flying down the hills. This effectively changed the strategy of many of the runners in the race, including Kirui. " I was trying to stay behind the firs t three miles, that was the plan, but I realized staying behind more than ten people was so dangerous, " Kirui said. " People were throwing mud on you, punching and trying to be protective of the way they run so it was dangerous, and that ' s when I realized to run in front. I was able to stay up front but it was at a deliberately slow place and a strategy to be safe in terms of falling down. " Kirui may have been trying to run at a deliberately slow place, but with two miles to go, the senior began his run and pulled away from the competition for good en route to his victory. Kirui credited his victory in part to the fans and family that were present at the race to support the team. " It was pretty exciting, " Kirui said. " I have been saying that it is the best thing that you can have is your family all around you saying something in every corner of the race, so it was easy to get going and trying to make them proud. " Next up for Kirui are the Southeast Regionals in Tuscaloosa, Ala. in two weeks. Kirui needs to finish high in the individuals at regionals. The Rebels hosted the SEC championships for the first time in ten years in Oxford and Walker thought the Ole Miss staff and community did a first rate job with the event. " I would pat ourselves on the back, " Walker said. " A lot of people contributed, but I thought we ran a first class affair with less than easy conditions to do it in. It has been done well and I am proud of all the help we have had and all the people that did contribute. " The women were led by a young group of players this season, which includes sophomore Logan Waites. The rising junior created high expectations for next fall for herself and coaches with her season.

Freshman Kristi Boxx and sophomore Karen Nijssen earned All-SEC honors with Boxx being named to the All- Freshman Team. Sophomore International Studies major Gabby Rangel from Hendersonville, TN described the season like this, " It was a great season because we went from being unranked to 21st in the nation and we had amazing wins, especially over Florida, which was our 2nd in school history. The most exciting part about it is we should do even better this year with the addition of some new players and overall improvement.

The team started out the season with two losses, but quickly made up for it with a string of four wins over Troy, Iowa, Arkansas State, and Memphis. This set the pace for the rest of the season. The records show that the team definitely preferred the home court advantage, only losing two matches played in Oxford. Many of the players were freshmen or sophomores, leaving the young team to develop their skills and try and beat their own record of a number 2 1 in the national ranking.

Both of you worked very hard this year through all of the ups and downs. To Ignacio, Brian, and Addison, thank you for always coming through and never turning down a last minute assignment. Without photos there would be slew of stories on pages with no illustrations to compliment. Thank you Toce, for having what we needed anytime we asked. I would like to finally thank Tracy Mitchell and the SMC for the many opportunities given to students and the patience while we train and learn. Cass Green - Photo Editor Wow! Words can not even express how crazy this adventure has been! I am so blessed to have had this opportunity. To Caitlin, girl we made it! Thanks for being a great friend through all of this. To Cass, thanks for sticking by us. I don ' t know where we would without you and your fabulous photography staff. Special thanks to Ms. Darcy, Ms. Traci, and Ms. Pat for believing that could make this yearbook. To my managing staff, I Love You Guys! You were such an wonderful group and always worked til the job was done. To all those organizations and greeks that are a part of this yearbook thanks for working with us and I hope you continue to work with the yearbook. I would also like to thank the Athletic Department in helping us out. A very special shoutout to our boot camp leader Jeremy Roberts, Ashley Dees, Aline Carabet, and Dylan Parker for everything. To the yearbook staff, you are all amazing and this yearbook would not be possible without you. I want to thank all my family and friends who supported me through this. You were the ones who pushed me to continue to try my best and reminded me that at the end all of my hard work would pay off. wWorking in the student media center was a true learning experience that I will hold on to dearly for years to come! Jasmine Phillips - Managing Editor m 354 the o e miss A year ago when Ashley Dees handed the " torch " down to us, she said, " Remember, always have a plan. Then, make sure you have a back-up plan for the plan. " Needless to say, I wish I had taken her advice. I feel sure it would have saved me from numerous panic attacks and sleepless nights. But, here we are. DONE. I have to say, i ' ve never felt more relieved, because there was a time where I thought I would never see the light at the end of the very, very dark tunnel. I don ' t think any of us knew what a challenge this would be when we accepted our positions last spring to be part of a leadership team that was assembled to replace an editor-in- chief. We were clueless and had no problem voicing that from the beginning, but with the help of Ms. Darcy and Jeremy Roberts, we managed to get going in the right direction. When things starting getting tough toward the end, those same two people were there to guide us to the finish line. Jeremy, words cannot express how much I appreciate all of your help. I honestly don ' t know what we would have done without you (or what I would have done without the Papa Johns and Master P concerts.) To Darcy Davis, Traci Mitchell and Pat Thompson, thank you for never losing faith in us. Jasmine, you were a blast to work with, and I admire you so much for all your hard work this year. I know you will do great things with the yearbook in the future. Cass, you and your photographers were nothing short of amazing! I appreciate you guys taking on all the assignments without question-even when they were last minute. I would especially like to thank Ashley Dees, Dylan Parker, Aline Carambat and Caroline Lee for helping us get last minute work finished. You guys proved that there are no boundaries inside the SMC. Last but certainly not least, I have to thank my writing staff. I ' m sure there was a time when all of you wanted to block my emails, so you wouldn ' t have to receive another last minute story assignment. Thank you for staying positive when things got crazy. Despite all the bumps in the road, this experience has been one that i ' ll never forget. I have learned so many things through all of this: patience, understanding, the true meaning of hard work, but most of all i ' ve learned how to persevere in the face of adversity. . «w Caitlin Wilkerson - Writing Editor W ■ W the ole miss 355 356 the ole miss 1L TP " m %u the ole miss 357 ■ 358 the ole miss :• • r» • % .? -_ ..-. the ole miss 359 I 360 the ole miss m Mitt W 1 r.--. m M i ■ % :s d m .-.. u , 3 9 ,t A U — V ft 7 IN wl » ti :!
