Jhe Real Reason You Love ' an e ' , pl62 And It Has Nothma To Do With A Red Solo Cud We started with only a few ideas and a monumental mission: tell the story, the real story of the University of Mississippi, ' the one the rest of the world doesn ' t know and hasn ' t known for far too long. i Marred by decades of skewed perception, we remained chained to Meredith and 1962, to songs, mascots and Confederate flags, perpetually wounded by symbols we didn ' t create and stereotypes we couldn ' t escape. Our achievements often paled in comparison to the ever-brewing controversy at that racist school down south. Recognition often stung worse than criticism as headlines boasting how far we ' ve come were, for many of us, another way of being punished for what we once were. Perhaps it was easier to let superficial and often unsubstantiated labels tell our story than to find out who we were and why it even mattered. They ' ve given us the reputation as hard drinkers, and we ' d have to be to attend one of the top party schools in the nation. When we ' re not skipping class to refill our Solo cups, you can find us waxing poetic about the G.O.P. or dreaming of the day we ' ll either become or marry the next Miss America. Gentlemen certainly have their pick of the litter at a university boasting some of the most beautiful women on earth, but they also have to work for it. Everyone knows Ole Miss girls only come here with the intention (and the ability) of earning their M.R.S. degrees, meaning the guys don ' t stand a chance if they ' re not heading to law or medical school after graduation. After all, we have to keep up appearances around here every year as Mississippi ' s wealthiest magically emerge out of the poorest state in the nation and make their way to Oxford. (Daddy ' s Money keeps us recession- proof.) Down here in the Land of Cotton, we bask in bourbon-drenched antebellum nostalgia, which is why we maintain a time-honored system of racial and social segregation. You see, in Dixie, we firmly believe in the preservation of tradition - ALL tradition - good, bad and ugly. If we did something at least once before, that ' s enough of a reason to do it forever. It ' s our motto. Ultimately, we take great pride as the best-looking and hardest-drinking halfwits in the nation, with more money than God and permanent, card- carrying membership in the Republican Party. This narrative, sustained by a university polarized for decades over what to do with its own nnurky reputation, could have lived forever HAD WE LET IT. II When considering the theme for this year ' s annual, the 2010-2011 staff of the O e Miss knew it wouldn ' t be possible to tell every story necessary to fully illustrate the contradiction between their perception and our reality. We simply pursued the belief that a diverse community comprised of thousands of people - all with their own unique traits, abilities and beliefs - could no longer accept being defined by anyone but themselves. Our mission was not to suggest the university should ever reject or try to forget any part of its past. It was simply to reflect the prevailing attitude of today ' s Ole Miss, a university that understands it cannot FACE FORWARD when constantly looking back. Though the following pages are a mere snapshot of the countless experiences we all will take away from the 2010-2011 school year, they were created with the hope of giving the university ' s story back to those who live it. This is your story. THIS IS YOUR OLE MISS. % ' " I It was the flagship school in what was then the most defiantly white supremacist state in the union.

TT REBEL ONS, LANDSHARKS AND BEARS? (OH MY!) The controversial mascot development process polarizes the community K Uncomfortable tension silenced the crowd of students, alumni and fans that had formed outside the student union the afternoon of Feb. 23, 2010. On one side stood those seeking change seven years after former university ' mascot Colonel Reb was removed from the sidelines of aught-Hemingway stadium. In fierce opposition stood those who either sought the colonel ' s return, or simply wanted the school to remain without a mascot as it had since 2003. Nearly 3,000 students voted in that day ' s referendum, spearheaded by the Associated Student Body, wWch asked whether or not the student body wanted to develop a new mascot. Many were con inced smdents were either too apathetic or too nostalgic for the ghosts of traditions past to vote for a new sideline symbol, particularly in the land where old times are not easily forgotten. However, 74 percent of students who voted were more than ready to move on, resulting in a controversial student-led development process prompting eight months of discussion over Uons, landsharks and racially ambiguous athletes. Weeks of preliminary voting eliminated many initial concepts, including a riverboat - 5- pilot, a horse and a blues musician, undl the final selections were made, leaving voters to choose between the Landshark (an unofficial mascot started by members of the football team during the 2008 season), Hotty Toddy Superfan (a gray-colored, faceless athlete) and the Black Bear. After 13,365 students, faculty staff, alumni and season ticket holders chimed in, the final decision had been made in October 2010, prompting those to either lovingly embrace or furiously reject the Rebel Black Bear. Local politician Travis Childers found himself on the receiving end of booing students when shouting " Go Rebel Black Bears " at an on- campus rally the day the results were released. Other smdents around campus wondered what a black bear had to do with Ole Miss. The Mascot Committee explained that President Teddy Roosevelt, who refused to kill a black bear on a hunt in Mississippi in 1902, inspired the concept of the bear. The committee also drew a connection to Oxford ' s own William Faulkner and his novella, " The Bear. " " We selected the Rebel Black Bear because it was supported through the entire process and was the lead runner in the fmal poU, " said Margaret Ann Morgan, co-chair of the Mascot Selection Committee. Chancellor Dan Jones said he was impressed with the students ' effort to involve all areas of the Ole Miss community. " I want to thank the students who have served on the Rebel Mascot Selection Committee for their hard work and leadership, " he said. Led by the Ole Miss Athletics Department, plans immediately began to bring the black bear concept to life. Michael Thompson, senior associate athletics director, will chosen to lead the mascot embodiment campaign. He said that there will be much to do to make the black bear come aUve, as well as many aspects to consider in making this mascot part of the Ole Miss community. The athletics department wiU overlook the process of the creation of a mascot costume, recruiting and training someone to serve as the first mascot, and selecting a 2011 launch venue and date. " We know that the new mascot has to complement the experience at all athletics events and create a lasting connection benveen Ole Miss and children, our future Ole Miss Rebels, " Thompson said.

NONE WHATSOEVER. -V?- WHY GEORGE LUCAS WONT RETURN OUR CALLS FIFTEEN MINUTES OF FAME When ESPN arrived on campus in Summer 2010 to film a commercial parody about the Ackbar movement, students, community members and even Dean of Students Sparky Reardon were more than willing to join in on the action. H6- .,.., — . — _ OLE MISS STUDENT VM ION ' w i i I It starred as a joke and became a movement. Six davs before the student body was called to vote on whether to accept the responsibilit)- of developing a new mascot, four students came together to fill a void for those who were ready to lay Colonel Reb to rest. Drawing comedic inspiration from a squid- like Star Wars character, Tyler Craft, Matthew- Henry, Joseph Katool and Benjamin McMurtray launched the Ole Miss Rebel Alliance and unwitdngly introduced Admiral Ackbar as a potendal mascot candidate. " We were just thinking of funny ideas, " Katool said. " We were looking into pop culture and famous people around Mississippi. We really thought, AVe are rebels! Ole Miss Rebel Alliance! VCTio leads it? Admiral Ackbar! ' " Not long after, a wooden sign sat in the Grove promoting Ackbar, which immediately drew widespread attention. Katool, an art major, took creative charge designing the campaign, while Craft and Henry led faithfully from the depths of their pockets. They created a Facebook page, purchased sidebar ads and created their own website. This joke among friends quickly spread throughout campus as a way to give the student body a voice in the selection of a new mascot without negativit} ' , McMurtray and Katool said. The original ballot asked, " Do you want an on- field mascot? " , with the options ' es, ' ' No, ' or i don ' t have a preference. ' Protest campaigns launched by local organizations were suddenly on a mission to persuade students to vote ' no. ' " The whole mascot issue was getting really heated, " Katool said. " We wanted to make sure aO the smdents knew what the vote was about. " Those looking for an alternative to the battle between a new mascot and the colonel ' s resurrection suddenly had a common, albeit laughable, rallying point. And four jokesters found themselves at the forefront of not only a campus movement, but a national media blitz - one that remcwed focus from a universir - clinging to images representative of its divisive past to one where smdents were ready to move on. It took seven days for the organization to evolve from a novelt}- piece circulating around the SEC blog circuit to a national story featured on the Web sites of the Adanta journal Constitution, the Washington Post and MSNBC, as well as entertainment site TMZ. com. While the creators made their mark on campus with the alien-like mascot, they also sparked attention at a greater level when ESPN decided to feamre the universit} ' by filming a commercial on campus for the national ad campaign, " It ' s not crazy, it ' s sports. " " I was sitting in my cubicle at work and 1 got a voicemail, " Katool said. " The dean of students (Sparky Reardon) wanted my contact information to give to ESPN. " ESPN asked Katool and McMurtray to gather those involved in the development of the Ackbar movement. The commercial a ired in September 2010, feamring Reardon, Katool, McMurtray and many other students. Through their humility and passion for promoting a new on-field mascot, the group ' s creation gained a lot more attention than expected. " It ' s unbelievable how much attention it got, but at the same time it worked, " McMurtray said. story ALEX MCDANIEL HOLLY REEVES photos NICK TOCE Screen shots courtesy of YouTube ESPN.

FEBRUARY 23, 2010 WE SAID GOODBYE TO COLONEL REB (AGAIN). NEARLY 2,500 VOTES became the nails hammered into the colonel ' s coffin in February 2010, almost seven years after administrators removed him from the sidelines. After months of heated and public debate concerning the choice to develop a new mascot, the student government put it to a vote, which resulted in a landslide decision to find new representation for the university.

Sectional differences still remain. Southerners will always be quick to remind anyone outside Dixie ' s limits that soft drinks aren ' t pop, there ' s no such tiling as stuffing and restaurants that don ' t offer sweet tea are downright barbaric. Meanwhile, the lingering drawl of the South comes with its own misconceptions for North- erners, often painting an inaccurate picture of a South drowning in its own ignorance. However, manv on both sides believe some- where amid geograpliical conflict lies a core belief in the power of fellowship; and every year, thousands of Mississippians and New Yorkers gather in Manhattan ' s Central Park to prove it. Though the picnic is held in the heart of New York Cit ' , the event itself is designed to make Mississippians feel right at home with art ven- dors, book-signings bv Southern authors and deep-fried catfish washed down with McAl- ister ' s sweet tea - all set against the musical backdrop of classic Delta blues. ' " iou see so many people that vou have no idea lived in New York Cit ' , " alumna Margaret Taylor, who now lives in Manhattan, said. " It is just so much fun to see familiar faces, and not only familiar faces, but people who will walk up to you and have a smile on their face and talk to you because you have something in common. " Junior Taylor McGraw said it ' s great to hear " Hott} ' Toddy " while passing people on the way to the picnic. " It feels like home when you show up and see all the tents and drink sweet tea, " McGraw said. " I think it is cool to show off the best of Mississippi.

All of you that have come up here from Mississippi, or your parents came up here, remember we have a place for you at home. SO COME ON HOME.55 -Governor Haley Barbour Chancellor Dan Jones said the picnic is a great way to connect with the university ' s New York family. " There is a big connection between Ole Miss and New York, " he said. " Right now, one of our big contemporary connections is Eli (Man- ning). We love following Eli, but there are lots of folks from Ole Miss who eventually find their way to the big cit) ' and find success here. It ' s good to see. " Wearing a friendly smile and red and blue is a great way to promote the school in New York, Jones added. Governor Haley Barbour also brought a warm Mississippi welcome to the Big Apple. " More than 30 years ago, some Ole Miss peo- ple started the idea for the Mississippi Picnic in Central Park, " Barbour said. " This has served as opportunit} ' for Mississippians who live in the New York area to get together, but also for people from home to come up to New York. The founders have a lot to be proud of " While many Mississippians have jobs and fami- lies in New York, Barbour told the crowd that there is always a home for them in Mississippi. " All of you that have come up here from Mis- sissippi or your parents came up here, remem- ber we have a place for you at home, " he said. " So come on home. " Barbour recalled an interview actor Morgan Freeman, a Mississippi native, once gave to a Los Angeles Times reporter. " Why in the world would you live in Charleston, Miss.?, " asked the reporter. Freeman responded, " Be- cause I can live anywhere I want. " As more Mississippians and New Yorkers alike keep discovering the picnic, it continues to grow and offer the best of both worlds. " Each year it gets bigger and better and more people have heard about it, know about it and come up for it, " Taylor said. " It ' s fun to come up to New York and do something related to the South at the same time. It is a Uttie piece of home in the big city. " story ELIZABETH PEARSON photos NICK TOCE -24- Christina Thompson holds the keepsakes from her home in Pascagoula, Miss., which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. -2S- i I Hurricane Camille was supposed to be the worst thing that could ever happen to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Journalism professor Nancy Dupont was a teenager living in Gulfport when the inexplicably powerful Category 5 storm destroyed the state ' s coastline in August 1969. While many of her friends left for college, she staved at home to help her parents repair the damage Camille left behind. Decades later in 2005, after a successful journalism career and earning her Ph.D. from the UniversiU ' of Southern Mississippi, Dupont and her husband moved to New Orleans, where she began teaching full-time at Loyola University. That summer, amid the most record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season to date, what started as a tropical depression in the Bahamas had strengthened into a Category 3 hurricane by Friday, August 29. Two days later, Dupont left New Orleans for Gulfport to pick up her parents, fearful of the potentially cataclysmic impact of Hurricane Katrina, which was expected to make landfall the following day. Katrina arrived right on time, decimating most of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, killing hundreds and resulting in billions of dollars in damage. Dupont and her father found their home in ruins when they were able to return to Gulfport. Her parents, both 80, had no choice but to move in with her. Traumatized and exhausted, Dupont believed the worst was behind her until nine months later, when Loyola laidoff 17 professors, including her. " I was in complete shock, " Dupont said. " Not only was I struggling with rebuilding my life and finding a place for my parents, now I had to find a new job. " Dupont had always joked with her dad, an Ole Miss alumnus, that maybe one day she would end up teaching at the university. When she found out about an opening in the journalism department, she applied, and Dupont and her husband drove to Oxford the following week for an interview. It was after that interview that she came across a well-known Frank Everett quote displayed in the smdent union: 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. " I burst into tears as soon as I read that quote, " she said. " If this is what people thought about this universit} ' , this campus, the people, this is where I wanted to be. " The students, the facult} ' and the community were extremely supportive and understood what she was going through. " After everything I ' ve been through, I have learned one valuable lesson, " Dupont said. " Nothing is strong enough to ever take your hopes or dreams away. " Christina Thompson still relives her experience with Hurricane Katrina. A Pascagoula native, Thompson lived in the same beachfront house since she was 7. The Thompson family was always prepared for hurricanes. " When we moved into our house, it was already 50 years old and had somehow survived Hurricane Camille, " she said. " When a storm would come, we knew the house might flood a little but none of us could have anticipated Katrina. " The night before the storm struck, her family went to stay with relatives in North Pascagoula. " All we had was the clothes on our backs and maybe a toothbrush, " Thompson said. After two days, Thompson saw the aftermath for the first time. Power lines were down and trees were broken in half, but it was nothing out of the ordinary. But then, " my family and I waded through the water, it was up to our knees. We had to climb over roofs, through random trash to finally get to our house. " The entire row of houses was completely wiped out; nothing was there. Left homeless and unsure of what to do next, the Thompson family began to sift through the rubble, finding odds and ends. " We would find the weirdest things. My mom found our dishwasher a couple blocks away that still had perfectly good dishes in, " she said. " After that, everything we would find, she referred to as ' pieces of hope. ' " With help from the community, the Thompson family rebuilt their house, and more importantiy, their lives. " It was upsetting losing sentimental items you had since childhood, and of course, losing your home, " she said. " But in the grand scheme of things, it ' s just about a bunch of stuff; you ' ll always have family.

YOU CAME BACK TO SCHOOL Thousands upon thousands of students arrive on campus each fall, meaning a new year is underway once again. But with each new experience comes new faces, new goals and new expectadons of learning, in and outside the classroom. For freshman biology major Rachel Simpson, leaving home for the first dme was exciting, but it was harder for her parents than it was for her. " My mom and dad cried, but I was ready to go, " she said. While attending summer school, Simpson became very familiar with the campus and beUeves it really helped her adjust to the first week as a college student. " There is definitely a lot more people, " she said. " It ' s better than high school because you get out earUer every day and have a lot more dme to do homework. " She also likes the freedom of being more than five hours away from home. " I like to be able to do whatever I want to do, " she said. While Simpson adjusts to college, Kari GriUis is a seasoned senior preparing for the next phase of her life. " I cannot wait to be finished with undergrad and have my oppormnity to go to graduate school, " Grillis said. " This year I want to enjoy my classes and enjoy what I ' m learning. " Taking 18 hours of class, working three days a week and volunteering in the community, she expects this year to be a tough one. " It ' s definitely going to be hard with the amount of work I ' m taking on, " she said. " But, I ' ll have dme to play when I ' m done. Right now, I ' m just focused with school and getdng into graduate school. " Although GriUis has learned a lot from her classes, she also learned that college is all about the experience. " It ' s a life experience, " she said. " I realized that there are a few things that really don ' t matter that you believe are so important your freshman year. " She remembers being the nervousness she felt when spending her first night on the Square and dressing up for football games her freshman year. " I sometimes would dress up, but there would be times that I would wear blue jeans, an Ole Miss sweatshirt and cowboy boots, " she said. " It doesn ' t matter and no one is going to think of you any differentiy. I learned to just let it go. " As she looks at all the freshmen on campus this year, she said she feels a bit nostalgic. " I cannot believe that I ' m finished with undergrad, " she said. " I ' m also amazed at how many freshmen are on campus this year. I look back and say, ' wow, ' I used to be one of them. It really brings back memories. " While Grillis prepares for graduate school, Robert Reece still feels at home on campus. " I ' m comfortable here, " he said. " I ' ve reached that point where it ' s like high school. " When Reece began as a freshman, he didn ' t know anyone or have any friends. " It took me a really long time to find my place here, " he said. Reece spent the past four years working toward his bachelor ' s degree in sociology and has seen the campus change during what he caUs the university ' s " perpetual state of construction. " " I know where all the buildings are, " he said. " It ' s a big thing when you can say you know where buildings used to be. " Starting out in journalism, Reece quickly discovered a future in media was not for him after he took a sociology course. " It kind of turned my world around, " he said. He is now working on his master ' s degree in sociology, and says he prefers his seminar-style classes as opposed to undergraduate courses. " Toward the end of my senior year at undergrad, I wasn ' t really getting anything out of the lecture anyway, " he said. " Everything they were teaching I knew from previous courses. There was no point. " He also Ukes being surrounded by like-minded people. " It ' s nice to be in a room where people actually think like me, " he said. " They recognize the things that I recognize and see the world the same way. " However, he said there is an unexpected amount of work. " I have friends who were in graduate school prior to my starting and they often talked about how much work it is, " he said. " I always thought they were exaggerating, but they ■(«i weren ' t exaggerating. " I loiitl Reece hopes to refine his research and get published. " I think that ' s my main goal, " he said. " Hopefully by this time next year I ' ll have two publications. And learn something along iBltsyl the way. " Mpm For German professor Corina Petrescu, a new school year means a new opportunity to educate eager young minds. tth( She begins the first day of class with " Gute Morgen. Wie geht es dir? " and hands out the new syllabus for the semester. Although she greets the smdents with the same " Good morning. How are you? " in German each day of the school year and knows a few of the students from previous classes, she carefully explains each element of -26- the syllabus as students listen intently and ask questions in German. She repeats each answer slowly and uses objects to explain the point she is trying to convey. " At the beginning of the school vear, there is a certain enthusiasm for students that are already interested in German, but in many cases there is some nervousness with the students who don ' t know their instructor, " she said. As a professor of German film and 200-level German classes, Petrescu prepared early for this year ' s classes because she spent the summer in her home country of Romania. " I start very early for each class because I want them to be as close to perfecdy planned, " she said. " It always works better during the summertime because there is more time during the break to prepare for classes. You always have a scenario in your head when you prepare for a class. " As the semester continues, Petrescu said that a comfort level develops betv -een her and her smdents. " I like their answers and they seem comfortable enough to address the issues, " she said. " They say what is on their mind even though it may not coincide uith what I think. 1 think it ' s good and I like the discussions. " Her favorite part of teaching is watching students go out of their comfort zone and chaUenge themselves, even if it means saying something that will throw them off course. " I just want to see their reactions and have them act it out, " she said. " I enjoy it when I see students do it themselves and they start thinking and pursue that farther than class time. " story ELIZABETH PEARSON STAGEY WILLIAMS photos NICK TOCE ADDISON DENT -29- HERE COMES THE BOOM. When thousands of students arrive on campus every fall, it ' s not unusual to see packed parking lots, crowded classrooms and ever- growing lines of impadent students within the bookstore, food court or registrar ' s office. However, this year ' s unprecedented enrollment increase took inconvenience to an entirely new level. With the arrival of 3,089 freshmen, a 19.9 percent increase from Fall 2009, and an increased retendon rate of 83.1 percent, total enrollment at all universit) ' campuses soared to a record-breaking 1 9,546 students. This number is up 1,223 students from 2009, a 6.7 percent increase. Though the enrollment increase was considered posidve for the university, it also affected different aspects of student Ufe, specifically transportation and on-campus housing. " So far, we have been able to house all freshmen on campus, " student housing director Lorinda Ivhrut said. " However, we were very full this past fall. " Khrut said the housing supply will have to meet the demand if class sizes continue to increase in the future, including adding an additional 720 beds by Fall 2012 in anticipation of future growth. Other changes include Crosby HaU being converted into a freshman-only residence hall, as opposed to mixed freshman and sophomore Greek women, Ivruht said. Another affected area is the financial aid department. Known for having notoriously long lines at the beginning of each semester, staff members definitely noticed an increase this year. However, Financial Aid Director Laura Diven- Brown said the amount of aid students receive is not affected by the number of students attending. " We have found a heav} ' demand for federal work-studv program opportunities this year, though, and work-study funds are limited, " Diven-Brown said, adding that Summer 2011 financial aid applications are expected to increase, but not all applications can be accepted considering summer aid is traditionally hard to come by. Students were not the only ones affected by the deluge of incoming freshmen. Staff members felt the effects of having more students to serve. " The (housing) staff does have to work longer hours, but we look at it as an opportunit} ' to be creative in our time management sldlls, " KJirut said. Likewise, financial aid staff members work harder and longer to serve students. " Our staff members have worked very hard to serve the students and have put in extended hours on weekends, nights and early mornings to accommodate the needs, " Diven-Brown said. " We know how important it is for students to have funding on a timely basis for their semester expenses. " In the admissions office, 10 staff members and two temps manage a workload of approximately 50 applications per day. " We ' ve honesdy been having to manage, with applications up and our staff the same, " said Jennifer Simmons, assistant director for admissions. " We ' ve just been trying to get all of them processed in a timely manner, which sometimes mandates overtime. " Enrollment Services Director Whitman Smith and his staff led widespread recruitment efforts to boost numbers, but doesn ' t take all the credit. " We are extremely pleased with our numbers, both in terms of our increase in enrollment and the quaUty of our students, " Smith said. " We were greatiy aided by the universit} ' recruiting community ' at large because they understand how important recruimient is at Ole Miss. " Smith said many people have taken notice of the universit} ' that previously did not, due to its " good size, good price (and) good programs.

A closer look into the local alcohol culture Smashed. Blitzed. Sloshed. Bashed. Plowed. Tight. Loose. Messed up. Toasted. No matter the name, it all means the same thing - a level of drunkenness a few beers above tipsy and five or six whiskey shots away from deatli. Whether you ' ve never had a drink in your life, or you spend your weekends on the ground M clutching blades of grass to avoid falling off " the earth, simply being associated with this university implies that you take part in the hard-living lifestyle that keeps us at the top of the national part) ' school rankings every year. However, the local drinking scene is more complex than its rowdy reputation, suggesting that maybe the Ole Miss educational experience isn ' t exactiy a perpetual, four-year binger resembling the toga party scene from Animal House. OUT ON THE TOWN Downtown Oxford is a local gem, with a bustling, old-fashioned town square filled with stores, offices and restaurants that would give Mayberry a run for its money. II But when the sun goes down on Thursday night, the Square transforms into the collective hot spot for students and adults alike, with a vatiety of bars and clubs to choose from. Often referred to as " The Littie Easy " by locals, these aren ' t the stereotypical Southern watering holes one might expect to find. Bouncers guard the doors daring anyone to try to sneak a fake ID past them, while charismatic bartenders serve to please, fiUing glasses to the brim with just about anything someone wants. Though smdents of all ages can typically find a spot on the Square to hang their hats, it primarily serves as an over-21 refuge for upperclassmen from the freshmen-inhabited frat party scene. Senior Rebecca Hopkins enjoys local spots thai are more laid back. " It ' s fun, but it doesn ' t get crazy, " she said. " However, the peace comes with a price. " Between the flow of conversation and martinis, it doesn ' t take long to run up a steep tab at any of the Square ' s late-night locations. Sophomore Michael Smith prefers house aarties over bars. Not only does it save lini money, but it provides a more relaxed itmosphere. ' Last year I went to the Square a lot, but this vear I tend to go to friends ' houses more, " he Uaid. 4 (tmlir 31 smanc the icep ions, FROM THE COMFORT OF CAMPUS ontrary to popular belief, alcohol is not llowed on campus (nor do smdents get " special access " to the on-campus marijuana field used for medical research); however, excepdons are made for tailgadng in the Grove during home football games, along with plenty of elaborate regulations. Because the Grove isn ' t technically located in Oxford, it falls under Lafayette Count) ' ' s alcohol regulations, which prohibits consump- tion of beer or light wine (anything LESS than 5 percent alcohol by weight). Under this rule, students and fans can consume all the hard liquor they want, provided it ' s ixk cup and the botties stay mcked away in a locked cool er at all times. Alcohol is also not allowed in Vaught- Hemingway Stadium, though some people find interesting ways to smuggle it, especially those true Southern gentiemen who keep duct tape on hand to secure a plastic flask to their date ' s inner thigh. Woven into the tapestry of the college experi- ence is turning 2 1 , which typically happens during one ' s junior or senior year. However, many smdents see no need to wait until they can legally drink and rather choose to find a way to drink without getting caught. Freshman Rebecca Clark prefers attending on- campus parties, but says they are much tamer than parties off campus due to the constant risk of being busted for underage drinking. " If you ' re off campus, it ' s not as likely that a police officer will ask you what ' s in your cup, " she said.

CHANGING THE CULTURE Despite the horror stories, the university administration has tackled the " part)- school " status head-on. Freshmen now required to complete an online alcohol education course, which seeks to educate them on the conse- quences of irresponsible behavior. A two- strike policy has been implemented in which smdents are punished for underage drinking, on-campus drinking or public drunkenness. The policy applies to alcohol-related offenses committed off campus, as well. However, the question stiU remains. How long will it take until alcohol consumption stops being synonymous at an institution that recov- ers from athletic defeat by proclaiming we ' ve never lost a part} ' ? story BRACEY HARRIS MALLORY SIMERVILLE photo NICK TOCE HE y I J I OR IS IT? The much-anticipated 21st birthday has a reputation of its own, but doesn ' t always follow a traditional drunken path. Expectations for what a college student ' s 21st birthday should be like may seem universal, but rlie actual experiences are as varied as those who live them. Senior Ruthie Fenger celebrated her big day in )une 2010 at a Backstreet Boys concert. Though she visited a few bars before and after the concert, she said the drinking was an insignificant element compared to the overall celebration. " It was fun going to a concert of a boy band I liked when I was a preteen and just being silly and crazy! " Fenger said. " We probably annoyed the people around us, but we didn ' t care because we were aU 21 years old and at a Backstreet Boys concert. I mean, who goes to a Backstreet Boys concert sober? " While some are beginning to think outside of the box and have nights not solely focused on overworking the liver, many people are still striving to have the traditional night on the town. Senior )av lurden had the t ' pical evening full of barhopping on the Square followed by a less-than-enjoyable morning. " I had a terrible hangover, and still had to attend graduation to cheer on my friends, " jurden said. " That was quite the accomplishment. Also, I lost my shirt. " Despite the morning-after suffering, jurden realized the " of- age " experience in a coUege town is more than headaches and dry heaving. " The best part is the fact that an entirely new social scene opens up, legally, " jurden said. " You can meet some of the most amazing and interesting people post-21.

It ' s the conversation that drives the experience. Graduate student Clay Terry has seen his fair share of 21st birthdays in college and doesn ' t buy into the hj ' pe anymore. " They are supposed to be grand coming-of- age moments, " Terry said. " Like Dazed and Confused, age-adjusted or something, but everyone has already been wasted and been drinking for years. You usually find out the hard way that night that the bar is expensive. " Even with naysayers and those who are quick to warn you about the dangers of hangovers, junior Lindsey Neyman is patiently waiting for her 21st birthday in 2011, which coincides with Oxford ' s annual Double Decker Festival. " It kinda seems like once you start college, it ' s a big countdown to your 21st birthday, " Neyman said. " I feel Uke once you pass the ' finally- 18-years-old ' bump, your 19th and 20th birthdays are prett}- insignificant. Your 21st is that last milestone to being an adult and having restrictions removed that you look forward to, so you start looking toward that. " WTiile Neyman is thrilled about being able to order a drink an -where she pleases, her excitement springs more from the new social experiences that become available with the " under-21 " label removed. " The drinking isn ' t as big a deal to me as being able to be in the same social simations as my friends, " Ne yman said. " There are just different crowds that hang out at the 1 8-and- up and the 21-and-up bars. I ' d say I ' m more of a fan of sitting at a bar for a conversation than a wild club.

Hanging from both ends of the tent are signs intended to let everyone know that Greenwood, Miss, loves the Rebels. You ' ll also meet an array of people, all of whom are guests of two hospitable hosts and Ole Miss alumni, Bobo and |an Champion. The Champions have tailgated since the late 1980s and have since recruited neighbors, family members, co-workers and friends into their tailgating family. Bobo attended the universit} ' in 1966, Jan in 1968. They dated for three years before getting married, when they briefly lived in Oxford while Bobo worked as sports information director for the universit} ' before moving to their present home in Greenwood. Bobo is a Cellular South executive and Jan works as an office manager for an optometrist, but their jobs never keep the Champions away from Ole Miss football. They haven ' t missed a single home game in fifteen years, which might be surprising to outsiders, but shocks few who also devote themselves to the university ' s unique tailgating experience. Part of that experience includes the Grove rush, a period of time the night before a game when taUgaters line Universit} ' Avenue waiting for the go-ahead to claim their own piece of land. X%ile the Champions now hire someone to set up their tent, they recall the heightened emotions that often came with securing a premier tailgating spot. " One year we were acmally waiting on the edges to get in there with all the people that rush the Grove, " Mrs. Champion s aid. " It ' s something everybody should experience once. " Jan is usually the first to arrive at the tent every Samrday morning, to greet visiting acquaintances. She arranges the food she and her guests have prepared on a buffet table, which sits near large coolers fiUed with ice-cold beverages, and encouraging visitors to eat all the food to avoid dealing with leftovers. Bobo arrives later, having caught extra sleep after spending his Friday nights announcing high school football in Greenwood. Once there, he joins Jan in greeting the guests with a smiling face and witty conversation. Though their tent is often filled to capacity, Jan and Bobo continue to invite visitors to their tent throughout the day, offering refreshments for the body and mind. " We have people from opposing teams that are walking through the Circle, " Mrs. Champion said. " A lot of times we invite them in to the tent! " When game time comes, the Champions make their way over to the stadium, where they experience the game first-hand. But their day isn ' t over at the end of the fourth quarter. The Champions return to the tent to continue tailgating, conversation now switched from the prospected outcome of the game to the real outcome. Win or lose, the Champions stick around for hours after each game, enjoying the company of friends, family and fellow Rebel fans. - e- V ' Vs the whole Ole Miss atmosphere. It ' s kind of why I came here. 5 5 Jimmy Pinkston Fraternity Member, Beta Ttieta Pi Though the alumni have a reputation for producing top-notch tailgating experiences, students aren ' t far behind. Being in a fraternit} ' on game day isn ' t just about having fun and hanging out at a tent. To junior and Beta Theta Pi brother Jimmy Pinkston, getting ready for the Grove is an involved process. Fraternity brothers start at 11 a.m. the Friday before the game to make sure they get a good spot. They take shifts sitting in the Grove until it opens at 10 p.m. Gameday apparel is also at the top of the list for students, when nothing is too formal. " You have to pick out the outfit for the Grove and make sure you have the matching bowties and all that good smff, " Pinkston said. He leaves the house each game day with a small cooler under one arm and a grin on his face, anticipating a day of tent-hopping, which is common for students who don ' t have a regular spot to tailgate. After hiking past the Phi Mu fountain, the Circle and halfwav through the Grove, Pinkston arrives at the Beta tent, situated on the upper half of the Walk of Champions. He jokes with his brothers before heading to the far side of the Grove, to what his fraternit} ' calls the " The Country Club, " a spot comprised of multiple tents, feamring a chandelier and plent}- of food. Hanging out with his brothers and friends is the best part of game days, he said. While walking through the Grove and Circle and back again, he constandy sees people he knows.

There ' s always like eight of us and it only takes like 1 5 minutes; it ' s the whole matter of riHng up the troops to go back. " The university ' s time-honored tradition of spirit doesn ' t only reside in the sea of blue and red pop tents, but also bv smdents practicing day after day to perfect their craft and share it with Rebel fans. Cheerleader Morgan Winkel said anyone who thinks cheerleading is not a sport has clearly never spent much time with a cheerleader during football season. " AH throughout the year we are continuously w orking to improve the squad, " she said. " Our main focus is game day, and once fall arrives that is all we focus on. " Prior to everv football game, the cheerleading squad spends every available hour ot the w eek perfecting their routines. " We have a different practice every night leading up to Samrday, " she said. " We go over the pre-game show, on-field routines and everything else we would possibly need to know- to be perfect for the upcoming game.

It makes all the hard work worth it and I feel that my dedication to cheering has paid off " Shortiy after the pre -game show, Winkel makes her way to the stadium to cheer during the game. It is evident upon kickoff the excitement and pride that Winkel and her fellow cheerleaders carries over to the stadium. " I love cheering for the school, " she said.

When he ' s not playing his alto sax or bassoon, Presley spends his days conducting the marching band during rehearsals. Before even making it to campus on game day, Presley is already preparing in his home as early as 7 a.m. " The day of the game, I make sure I have my whisde with me about two or three times before I leave the house, " he said.

The crowd surrounding Presley and the band following the routine tripled by the time the band wandered to the Grove stage for their final hurrah before heading to the stadium, ready for the familiar fight songs and chants that brings Rebel football to life. Presley rushes around, taking roll and answering questions from all different directions, all while smiling and enjoying everything he does. " My favorite part about being the drum major is knowing that I can be a positive role model for those in the band and being a voice for the band when trying to raise money and letting people know how hard we work so they will appreciate our performances at football games. " Once the game ends, he returns everything to the band hall and wishes everyone a wonderful weekend. While most people are rushing home to freshen up for a night on the Square, Presley takes a different approach: smdying and getting a good night ' s rest. " The greatest reward of being a part of the Ole Miss band are developing skills like pride, discipline and teamwork that aren ' t taught in the classroom and getting to do something I am already passionate about, " he said. story NATHANIAL WEATHERSBY, MOLLY LODEN, MIA CAMURATl, BRITTANY STACK photos NICK TOCE, EMMA WILLOUGHBY.

Brittany Anderson eats breakfast with her best friend three days a week. Though it might seem pretty common for the average college student, Brittany ' s best friend also happens to be her husband, Woody. Brittany said it was " love at first sight " when she first saw Woody step out of the car at Crosby Hall. Conversing over cups of Huddle House coffee, they realized they had something special. " I had totally fallen in love with this guy that had honesdy been my best friend since I had come to Ole Miss, " Anderson said. Though a portion of the female population is constandy on the hunt for " Mr. Right, " Brittany came to college not seeking a relationship. But about three months of dating, they were already talking about marriage, deciding commitment was something they wanted to have together and fairly soon. After making a list of pros and cons about wai ting until graduation, the couple decided getting married within the next two years would be fine, regardless of their progress in school. Woody proposed in April 2009 and planned a wedding at Paris-Yates Chapel for three months later. As newl -weds, Anderson and Woody moved to Sherman, Miss., a town between Oxford and Booneville. The location was ideal for them because Brittany goes to school in Oxford and works at the university ' while Woody goes to NEMCC and works in Booneville. Although they spend every other morning together, they barely have time to say " goodbye " on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Nights vary depending on Woody ' s work schedule, but Brittany said they balance their somewhat chaotic life by embracing every oppormnit) ' to slow down and be together. Upon her graduation in 2012, Brittany wants to go to law school. Woody graduates from the two-year electrical technology program at NEM CC in May. They both would like children, but " want them to have a really stable environment with a predictable schedule, so we want to be completely settled before that happens, " she said.

The newlwed also listened to her mother-in-law ' s relationship advice, " bu can ' t tell your heart who to love. " For pharmacy major Brett Barnes and biochemistry major Josh Smith, the story of their engagement began when they were in 9th grade, sitting at opposite ends of the classroom. " She was just beautiful and I absolutely couldn ' t bring myself to go over there and sit by her, " Smith, a senior biochemistry major, said. Litde did he know Barnes was thinking the exact same tiling. " I literaUy thought ' He ' s cute, I hope he sits by me, ' but instead, he went and sat on the other side of the room, " Barnes, a second-year pharmacy smdent, said. The two evenmaUy sat together and were soon talking rather than doing schoolwork. " We had an incredible teacher, who decided it would be totally okay for us to talk during class, " Smith said. They spent the next few months getting to know each other. " We hung out at each others ' houses, with our parents driving, " he said. " This was of course after we exchanged phone numbers. We have talked on the phone every night since. " Before the end of die 10th grade, the two knew they would be spending the rest of their lives together. " He told me he could see himself marr}ing someone like me within the first six months we were together, " Barnes said. " We were so young! Josh was my first love. " After almost six years. Smith decided it was time to ask Barnes to marry him. " I had been ring shopping for three months and 1 found a ring, " he said. " But, 1 just couldn ' t hold on it. It was burning a whole in my pocket. " Smith planned to " pop the question " on Dec. 31,2009. " I wanted to ask her to marry me at midnight -4 lie couple was married Dec. 18, 2010, at Broadmoor Baptist Church in Madison, Miss. on New Years ' Eve because we had always had a running joke that New Years was the worst holiday because it was all hype, and I wanted to change that, " he said. Smith first took Barnes to dinner and visited memorable places in their relationship. But he had one more surprise. " It was raining there and I asked Brett if she would follow me anywhere I went, " Smith said. " She said ' Of course, ' and I stepped out into the rain. Eventually she followed me out, and I got on one knee and proposed. " Barnes said yes. " We kissed and the fireworks for the new year went off all over town, " Smith said. " I wish I could honesdy take credit for that, but that was just a God thing. " Balancing smdy time, club involvement and planning a wedding can sometimes be a challenge. " Josh and I are both in really demanding majors, so he knew that planning a wedding and having to deal with school would be a lot for both of us to handle, " Barnes said. " We got most of the big stuff taken care of. " Although most people their age are focused simply on having a good time or beg inning a career. Smith and Barnes focus on college experiences with each other. " We ' ve never thought that we were too young to get married, " Barnes said. " Being engaged has made me feel voung, simply because we are starting a new chapter of our lives. " While they could have postponed marriage until they finished school, Barnes thinks the wait would be entirely too long. " School will not end for us for a very long time, " she said. " 1 have to complete three more vears of pharmacy school and Josh is applying to medical schools around the country. " They said their families are very supportive of their engagement. " Our families have seen us grow as a couple and agree that it ' s time for us to be married, " Barnes said. " Without their great support, this decision would have been more difficult.

Police cars blocking aU traffic from the Lyceum to Lamar are scattered down University Avenue; crowds of students and Oxonians gather on surrounding sidewalks to secure a good viewing spot. This annual ritual remains largely unchanged with each passing year, but it doesn ' t stop thousands from pardcipating in one of the most quintessendal tradidons of all Southern universities - the homecoming parade. Featuring decorative floats, convertibles filled with beauty queens and a closing pep rally by the Pride of the South Marching Band, the parade is the capstone event of Homecoming Week, which is sponsored by the Student Programming Board. Homecoming Queen Diana Price said she was initially nervous about her first public appearance as campus royalty. " It turned out to be a lot of fun, " Price said. " I am still working on my ' pageant wave. ' " Price said her favorite part of the week ' s festivities was attending an event to honor every former homecoming queen hosted by the Alumni Association. Almost thirt} ' women dating back to the 1950s attended. " It was just a really humbling experience to know that I am now one among a group of really fabulous women who have accomplished so much and have such a legacy at Ole Miss, " Price said. " Besides that, the support and encouragement that people have given me from day one has not only been so humbling, but has made me feel even more so that I have truly found a home and a family here at Ole Miss. " Homecoming Week is loaded with on-campus activities for students, including trivia contests, movies and laser tag in the Grove. " I always enjoy Homecoming Week, " junior Ryan McDurmon said.

It isn ' t that he lacked the qualificadons - in fact, his academic and extracurricular record were enough to classify him as a prime contender. The Olive Branch native and managerial finance major was also co-chair of the mascot selection committee - the same committee seeking a new on- field figure to replace the long-since-retired Colonel Reb (for whom the student distinction was named). However, it didn ' t stop him from running. Or winning. New ' s friends had urged him to run for three vears, a plea he ignored until his fraternity chapter began discussing his potential candidacy. Even then, he wasn ' t convinced of his abiUty to take the title against opponents Jake Chandler and Doug McDaniel. " We were running against (McDaniel), who was from Jackson and a Sigma Chi, which is a double-edged sword and very tough to beat, " he said. " But we got out there and walked around to the other Greek houses and talked to. people on campus. Wltile I never thought I ' d win, hearing everybody cheer was prett} ' incredible. " Although popularit} ' is a prime prerequisite for the tide, New said he didn ' t feel like he was part of a superficial contest. " We wouldn ' t make flyers listing what I ' ve gotten involved in on campus if it was just a popularit}- contest, " he said. " It should be based on what you ' ve done and given back to this universit) ' . " New added it often surprises him when people recognize him as Colonel Reb. " Not to say that the recognition isn ' t fun, though, " he said with a smirk. MISS CONGENIALITY VC ' hen making the decision to enter her first pageant as a junior in high school, Adrian Turner just wanted to dance. " There was a girl there that I just knew would win, " Turner said. " She was always the lead, on the homecoming court, that girl that everyone loves. But I won - and that planted the seed. " Turner nabbed the Miss University crown in February 2010, giving her a first-class ticket to the Miss Mississippi pageant in ' icksburg the following summer. " Preparing for Miss Mississippi is like preparing for Miss Universit}- — times 10, " Turner said. " Different professors and deans and different leaders around campus interview you at least two or three times a week to help you get ready. " Turner also had to commit to staying in shape, selecting a top-notch competition wardrobe, practicing her talent and whole-heartedly dedicating herself to her platform with Le Bonheur Children ' s Medical Center. Turner ' s involvement with Le Bonheur is special to her, she said, adding that winning the Miss Universit}- tide has allowed her to work more closely vnth the hospital. Aside from bake sales and tov drives. Turner raised more than S3,000 and more than 400 tovs and books for Le Bonheur patients in 2010. " Students came up to me and thanked mc for bringing Le Bonheur ' s niission to the forefront because they had been patients there, " Turner said. " That was just verv touching, seeing someone who had been helped by the organizati on that I ' m trying to help. " But behind the sequined dresses and Vaseline- coated smiles. Turner wants people to remember she is still just a girl. " I ' m a daughter and a sister, " she said. " I am a very loyal friend. I am serious when I need to be serious and at the same time I like to cut loose when it ' s appropriate. Yes, there ' s the beauty queen stereor -pe, but people need to remember I ' m intelligent and I have a lot to contribute beyond being just Miss Universit} ' . " CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT Miss Ole Miss Lauren Childers has no problem holding her own, despite her college experience getting off to a rocky start. " I came (to the university) as the only girl from my high school, and I cried every night the first two weeks I was here, " Childers said. After talking to her friend, business administration instructor Linda Spargo, Childers was motivated to simply start talking to people and get involved. " The Ole Miss family had given me so much, " she said. " (Miss Ole Miss) was a way for me to give back to them and represent something I had so much passion and love for. That was the university. " Some don ' t understand the purpose of the tide at a university which annually boasts a homecoming queen and Miss Mississippi contestant. However, Childers said has the opportunity to interact more with the community. " Through meeting new people I ' ve realized how important this role is, " she said. " It is a big deal on this campus and it ' s such a high honor. I think to put yourself on the ballot you have to have an actual love for this university and a desire to serve it and help others. " Childers insists she is still a college girl at heart. " I love to sleep in, " she said. " I love to stay up late. My friends always joke with me that I never sleep. I have a hard time sitting stUl, just watching a movie or watching TV. I always have to be doing something. I love talking to people. I love to be involved. " KILLER QUEEN Diana Price isn ' t your stereotypical Southern beauty queen, and she Ukes it that way. " I ' ve never worn a crown before in my Ufe, " Price said, noting that when it was time to I pose for her first portraits as the 2010 Homecoming Queen, I she needed assistance with putting on the tiara. " (Running for queen) went from something I was absolutely against to something I was really excited about and really wanted to do, " she said. " It evolved from two extremes. The Virginia native is no stranger to extremes, recalling a rough first semester on campus that almost drove Price to transfer to another university before her father intervened with encouragement. " ' Just stick it out, ' he said. ' I think Ole Miss has a lot to offer that other universities can ' t. ' " Staying was the best decision she ever made, noting the transformation process that takes place between freshman and senior year, she said. " You can come not knowing anyone and leave as someone worthy of representing the university, " she said. " There are divisive things on this campus that need to be changed to help people feel more welcome, but once you find your place, Ole Miss is the greatest. " The road to Homecoming royalty was not always as great for Price after campaign budgeting violations resulted in the disqualification of her opponent. Despite the controversy, she said had she not won, it wouldn ' t have been the end of the world. " It is, after all, just homecoming queen. " story MIRIAM TAYLOR photos ALEX EDWARDS EMMA WILLOUGHBY -54- T ' S EASY BEING GREEN students and community members turn to healthier nutrition options. Critics told Douglas Davis he was craz for wanting to launch Oxford ' s first evolving exercise in organic li nng and sustainable agriculture. Yokna Bottoms Farm seemed doomed from the start based on the widespread belief that it ' s impossible to grow anything in Mississippi without pesticides or insecticides. But that didn ' t stop Davis from pushing forth with a concept that had piqued his mind for years. With the help of Daniel and Alison Doyle, Oxford ' s first organic farm was born. Although organic farming has been successful in the North, it proved daunting to make it work in a small Southern town. However, Davis and the Doyles chose to ignore the naysayers who argued that organic farming didn ' t stand a chance against the state ' s nutrient-depleted soil and lack of government assistance. Fast forward one year, and Yokna Bottoms has successfully defied its critics. Lush green heads of letmce and cabbage cover the ground amid row after row of fresh onions, turnips and radishes. Dying peppers from the previous harvest splash red, green and yellow across the chemical-free ground. -5 - Using manure to enrich the soil and hard labor to rid the grounds of weeds, Yokna Bottoms ' owners proved nothing is impossible. " It ' s not the easy way to do it, " Daniel said. " The easy way to do it is to go out there with a backpack full of chemicals and spray the hell out of it. " Each day the farmers check for pests that could potentially damage the whole crop. Only the pumpkins were unable to survive their first year, but the Doyles are determined to try again with different methods. " We ' re excited about how this year went, " Daniel said. " And we ' re really excited about next year. We think next year is going to be huge. " This ever-evolving mind-set is a way of life on Yokna Bottoms farm, where the Doyles live with their one-year-old daughter, Sophia. It ' s just one local example of a nadonally expanding organic and locally grown food movement. Though organic farming is often viewed as a liberal concept, Daniel said the local farming community is conservative on an entirely different level, returning to the fundamentals of placing quality over quantity and nutrition over genetic precision. " There are thousands of reasons I could go into about ' why organic, ' ' why local ' and ' why sustainable, ' and why it is absolutely, in my opinion, vital, " he said. " Our Lives actually depend on it. " Rising concern over having access to healthier food has-also spread across campus. Kate Freeman, a junior art major, has been a vegetarian for three years. " I really like to eat healthy, " she said. " I feel like we are the only ones who have control over what we put into our bodies. I really try to take care of my body and myself " Freeman also prefers organic food, and is able to eat locally-grown produce by picking vegetables from her boyfriend ' s garden. While this might seem unorthodox for a coUege smdent, it is common for those seeking organic, vegetarian or vegan options. Freeman said the university does a " decent job " catering to the needs of those seeking organic or meat-free dairy-free options, but there is still more that could be done. " It would be cool if we had a specific place to eat that was just vegetarian, " she said. But Freeman thinks the chance of garnering enough support for such a large endeavor would be next to impossible. She estimates about half of the student body would get behind the idea, but acknowledges that the everyday lives of college smdents is " so fast- paced that students would rather just grab a hamburger. " Daniel said the issue goes well beyond convenience and availability of food choice, however. " It ' s not just about the food, " Doyle said. " It ' s about life and all Ufe as we know it, not just human Ufe. It ' s all interconnected. If we are egotistical enough to think that we ' re separate from the system of trees, the plants, the water, the animals - then we won ' t be around much longer. " In the future, patrons will not be able to buy fresh vegetables from Yokna Bottoms unless they work the land as part of the agreement, even if only for an hour. Daniel said working in the garden is an important part of eating organically. " It gets people connected with their food, " he said. Junior Charles Robinson made the snap decision one day to experience life from a meatiess perspective when, after heading to the JC for lunch, he couldn ' t any meat. " All there was were vegetables, and I thought, ' OK, let ' s do this, ' " Robinson said. " It was sort of spontaneous. " Robinson followed up his meat-free lunch with three weeks of vegetarian eating. " I just did it to see what it felt Uke and just to experience what a vegetarian goes through, " Robinson said. " Within the next three days, I felt a clarity. I won ' t say that I will never eat meat again, but I will undoubtedly continue to eat much more fruits and vegetables and very little meat, if any at all.

" As far as ministry is oncerned, the college campus is the front- ine. iophomore Hope Russell agrees. She said cheduling her prayer time is one of the most mportant aspects of college Ufe. " A schedule s the most important thing about pursuing a personal devotional, " Russell said. " It ' s hard ind it ' s a batde and if you leave it to when you lave dme, it ' ll never get done.

" Comparing group worship to her individual 3ible smdy, Russell feels that her alone time offers something the organizations on campus ;an ' t provide.

The hardest aspect of her religious practice is fa sting while at school, she said. " If you don ' t have a good schedule, or someone to do it with you, meal times come and it ' s very difficult. " Since Dasai can ' t go to temple every week, she looks forward to Garba, a Hindu dance per- formed every year during their Navrati festival. ' Garba is so important to me, " she said. " Ever since I was little, it was my favorite thing about being Indian. It ' s just so much fun. All your friends are there, you get to dress up, our out- fits are so nice, they ' re all colorful and color is symbolic of being Indian and Hindu. " Not being able to go to the festival for the fuU nine days has been hard on Dasai while in college. " We try to go to Memphis, but that can ' t always work out, " she said. " We do have it one day on campus through ISA but because of maj or tests and football seasons and because you can ' t have loud music on campus on Sun- days, (that) cuts a toll on smff " Dasai and Russell belong to just two of the faiths that are present on campus.

Q Joey Mozingo, Natalia Burgos and Zachary Cruthirds grapple with going to class, mainraining tlicir grades, and making money to support themselves through college. -6 68 For most students, college is all about making grades, finding new friends and making memorable moments. For others, these experiences are definitely high on the Ust, but must be part of the balance of having a job, whether it ' s for extra spending money, to pay tuition or gain valuable work experience. The universit} ' offers many job opportunities for students each semester. Students can choose to work in an area that will give them more experience in their intended profession, or they can choose a job based on the time they have available to work. Sophomore Natalia Burgos works as a secretary in Farley Hall for the Meek School of Journalism and New Media. " Being a journalism major and working at the journalism school means I get to know all the professors and staff on a more intimate level, which is a huge plus because I know who to go to for specific help or advice in regards to my classes, " she said. " I get to learn the ins-and- outs of the office and I get to start off on the professor ' s good side because they know who I am and that makes me feel more comfortable when talking to them. " Burgos has worked for the journalism school for three semesters, and said it is one of the best decisions she has ever made. She is also happy to gain some economic independence from her parents and get work experience. The university also offers a work-study program, in which smdents can choose from options such as working for a professor, filling a secretarial position or tutoring. The program gives students the opportunity to work 1 1 hours a week for a price that can be put toward tuition. Some professors offer paid research positions to students who would like to get a jump start on writing a thesis or get research experience for medical school. The university posts job listings at the beginning of each semester so students can see all available positions for all grade levels. While working on campus is convenient for some, others choose to search for a job off campus. " I think that it is easy for students to get off- campus jobs if they want them, " junior Kendra O ' Neel said. " It really helps if you have some experience in the area that you are applying for, but the people in Oxford are really good about helping smdents out and giving them a job. " For some students, working is the only option to pay for their mition, bills and extra expenses.

WTien the Universit)- of Mississippi opened in 1848, 80 oung men came to Oxford to form the first class of students for the first public univer- sit - in the state. Tuition w as S37 plus the cost of stove wood. The only admission requirement was that the student be at least 16 years old. Some of the classrooms were without desks, chairs and benches, and there was no libran; nor even an - t " textbooks. The Lyceum and the two dormitories were overflowing, and tliere were onl - four profes- sors. Of that now legendan- class of 80, only 47 remained through the first fiall term. By July 1849, five had been expelled, eight were suspended, 12 were allowed to withdraw and eight had walked awav from tlie university; their wiiereabouts unknown. That was our first class. As they say, w e have come a long way. Fall 2010 brought our largest enrollment in liiston, " : more tlian 19,500 students. Many people have conuibut- ed to tlie progress at our universit ; but throughout our historv, our students have pla ed lead ing roles in our defining moments. This year our students brought fresh perspectives, new ideas and boundless energy,- to the universit - communit}-. The University- of Mississippi was named to duee of tlie nation ' s top rankings lists by national publications: as die safest campus in die Southeastern Conference, one of the Clironicle of Higher Education ' s " best colleges to work for " and as " most appealing college " in a new book on liigher education. These accolades echo what all of us have know-n for -ears — that Ole Miss offers an amazing experience. I sincerely hope diat each of you will n-easure diis veai-book as a souvenir of a landmark year for die University- of Mississippi. Sincerely, DANIEL W.JONES, M.D. CHANCELLOR fe; ' ' Chancellor Dan Jones (right) is congratulated by former Chancellor Robert Khayat (center) and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour (left) during his inauguration ceremon) ' . m-. Paging Dr. Jon He approached the podium with unexpected ease, draped in black and green-trimmed rega- lia, appearing unfazed by the standing ovation from an audience filled with friends, family, colleagues and students. The applause soon dwindled, the stage Lights dimmed and the spotlight centered on Dr. Daniel W. Jones, the newly inaugurated chancellor of the universit} ' . " The Universit ' of Mississippi, as all universi- ties, has a great and noble mission centered on knowledge, " Jones said at the April 9, 2010, ceremony. " Our university community is focused on transfer of knowledge through our programs of education; creation of new knowledge through research and the cultiva- tion of new ideas through the arts and human- ities; and the use of knowledge to transform through our service mission. " Jones ' personal commitment to service was evident when he accepted the position of Chancellor in June 2009 following a long career in the medical profession both as a physician and most recendy as an administra- tor for the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. He applied that passion to the universit} ' by charging students, facult} ' and staff with a service-based mission to improve the universit} ' . " I want us to all realize the need for improving the world around us, whether that ' s individually or corporately through the universit} ' , " Jones said. " Part of what we would like to instill in campus life through this project is service be- ing a core part of who we are. " [ones spent seven years with his family as a medical missionary in South Korea, and be- Ueves service should not considered a separate aspect of one ' s life, but as the core motivating force of one ' s Life. " Lt was the way I was raised and what I saw in my parents ' lives, a life of service to other people, " he said. " It was a namral part of Life for me. I hope that my very life is service. " The chancellor introduced his mission by launching the Service DNA campaign in the weeks leading up to his inauguration ceremony. Chancellor Dan Jones ' transitions from medicine to academia, keeping service at the forefront " One of the images people have of the uni- versit ' is that we are the ivory towers, isolated places where people come to learn, " Jones said. " I think it is our responsibiUt) ' to look out into the community, see what the needs are, and be responsive to those needs. " Jones said the proposal of a service-focused campaign had been discussed among campus administrators long before it was launched. " This is not a new idea, " he said. " The focus of Service DNA is to emphasize it as an im- portant factor in the Life of the communit ' . " Many campus organizations offer opportuni- des for students to get involved in communit} ' service. Students can access an online service directory when looking for opportunities that aUgn with their interests. " The service directory enables individuals to describe service projects, recruit volunteers, track the people who have benefitted from the acdvit}- and track service hours, " Associate Provost Noel Wilkin said. " I would recom- mend that students visit the service directory to see the opportunides to become involved. " Many students have taken advantage of ser dce opportunides by pardcipadng in acdvit --based service, such as the American Cancer Societ ' ' s Relay for Life, building houses for disaster reUef or giving blood. " I beUeve (service) is why we ' re created, " Jones said. " I believe we ' re happier, healthier, more fulfilled human beings when we focus on the well-being of others rather than ourselves. " The campus chapter of Habitat for Humanit) ' gives students the opportunit) to help build affordable housing for famiLies who wish to become independent homeowners. Students volunteer to aid in die construcdon process, including paindng and using power tools. " Every Saturday we go to our house site and work on the house, " said Marie Britt, secretary for Habitat for Humanit)-. y - ' R- Many students also participate in fundraisers to raise awareness about homelessness and povert} ' . " Last year we did the Box Cit) ' where people came to the Grove, made box houses and stayed there for the night to see what it was like to be homeless, " she said. " We raised money for Haiti after the disaster that occurred there last year. " Leap Frog, an after school program, serves first and second-graders who are at risk of fall- ing behind academically in Oxford and Lafay- ette Count} ' . Universit} ' students volunteer an hour each weekday to tutor these smdents one- on-one in reading, writing, math and home- work completion. After tutoring, students may stay an additional hour for " enrichment, " where they participate in games and crafts with the children. Many students also participate in the annual " Thanksgiving Food Boxes " project sponsored by the Baptist Student Union. Smdents spend time packing traditional Thanksgiving favorites into boxes and delivering them to families in Hispanic communities. The Baptist Smdent Union also hosts an inter- national outreach ministry. Smdents befriend the exchange smdents and make them feel welcome, helping them acclimate to their new environment. The BSLl hosts an international game night where smdents enjoy board games, card games and other activities with American smdents. Female smdents are also encouraged to join the International Ladies Club, which is open to American and exchange smdents. Another component of Service DNA is service learning. The central theme of service learning is the collaborative relationship be- tween the community ' and the university with the goal of both seeing improvements. " It was the occasion of the inauguration, a historic change in our university ' s leader- ship and the qualities of our new chancellor, that energized this service mission, " Wilkin said. " Chancellor Jones is an outstanding example of how individuals can make a dif- ference in the communit} ' , state, nation and world. " As for the fumre, Jones hopes to see the uni- versity continue to be known for service. " It is my hope that we will continue to focus on service as long as I am here at the univer- sity, and if we do a good job of that, then certainly it will go on, " he said, adding that smdents learn just as much by doing practical service work as they do sitting in the class- room, the chancellor said. " As we continue to evolve as a university and a community, it is my hope that we will see our- selves not only as a place of learning, but as a place that prepares people for applying their learning to make the world a better place.

It had several names, including the " Department of Science, Literature and Arts " and the " Academic Department. " It was not until the 1900s that the school was given an administrator in the form of a dean; the first dean was Dr. Alfred Hume who began his job in 1905. In 1916 the College of Liberal Arts was adopted while Hume was still dean. The college is one of the largest colleges in the university and so we do enjoy a broad intellectual community across the different disciplines within the college. I consider participation in that community a great benefit. 5 5 JOSEPH WARD Chair of the History Department 1 always loved going to museums and galleries and exhibits before college.

He is a walking, talking adverdsement for theatre: tall, dark and handsome, constandy in modon, a human echo of what he finds most capdvating about his passion. " Energy. The fact that there is energy being exchanged, that it is moment to moment, " Jurden said. " I ' d much rather be extremely happy with something I love doing than be sort of happy with something I can just do really well, " Jurden said, repeating the justification he often gives for switching his major from pre-med to theatre. It is within the theatre, a department fuU of rich triumphs and rough falls, that Jurden finds his heart. " I love... " Jurden pauses as his eyes scan left looking for the perfect description for his profession. " I love how ethereal it is; you can only do a play once, and the next time the performance is completely different. I love that it is fleeting, this only makes you strive for it that much more. You don ' t get a second chance with a live audience. " Even with his passion running wild, there are days that his chosen career path can get him down. In a profession that has less than a one percent chance of success, there is a better chance of being struck by lightning than becoming as well-known as Brad Pitt. " There are days when I ' ve questioned, ' Oh, what can I do? ' " he said. " But when that happens I have to honesdy sit down with myself and say ' How happy would I be doing something else? ' " " As unhappy as I am right now because I have a monologue due, and I have a scene to put up and a movement template to do, and I have to go in for a fitting, and I might not have time to eat, and I won ' t get to the gym, how unhappy would I be if I couldn ' t do what I love? " Jurden isn ' t the only person who has questioned his decision to pursue acting. His friends were a bit wary when Jurden declared his major as theatre. " At first they had been like, ' Jay, you seem so passionate about this, why aren ' t you doing it? ' But when I finally did it they were Uke, ' But see, you don ' t have to make it your major why don ' t you just do it for fun? ' " Through his busiest days and worst critics, Jurden takes it all in with one of his signature smiles and a joke. ' One atlii: utile m m IB -406- KtSi lit tfot tdeii a?3 " One of the most difficult things to deal with in this major is rejection, " he said. " I ' ve been in the program for three years and been in seven shows, but I ' ve been told no, or not yet or can you give me more. But on a positive note, if I get shot down in bars now I do not feel near as bad, it ' s Uke ' Oh, weU, I ' ll just audition for this other girl now. ' " AO quips aside, )urden has found other ways to use his theatre skills in real life. Tins past summer he interned for the Oxford Shakespeare Company and was house manager as well as events coordinator for the company. While there are multiple options and outlets for his career path, Jurden has an idea of what would be the end-all, be-aU for his passion. " If I had one brass ring it would be to join the Writers Guild of America, " he said. " I think writing and play-writing and building something from nothing is such an impressive art form. " Jurden said he is in exact place to put him on that path. " I think Oxford is an amazing place for theatre, " he said. " We are top tier in the Southeast. " As natural as |urden may seem on the stage, he understands the complexit} ' of his passion. " Sometimes it ' s a bit daunting what you have to do, " he said. " You have to catalog everything that you can and cannot do and then mask that. My hat ' s off to anyone who wants to be a theatre major. " It does not cross Jurden ' s mind that he ' s in that group, as well, that he works against the odds to succeed in a business that too many think of as a joke or impractical. No, to )urden, theatre is liis life, his job and his passion. " It ' s given me my best friends, my girlfriends, my ex-girlfriends, my girlfriends again, my-ex girlfriends again, " he said. " It ' s the best. I love it. " Sophomore Mary WiUiams stands, legs slightly apart, hair wrapped in curlers, makeup half-finished as she gets ready for the evening. Busying herself with the rest of her preparations, it is evident by her swift, rhythmic movements that Williams is no stranger to a dance floor. " I ' ve been dancing since I was three, and then in high school I had drill team every day after school from 6:30 to 8:30, and would dance after that each night till 10, " Williams said. However, the accounting major said her love of dance was not enough to make it into a career. " I did consider making dance a career, but I wanted to be more realistic, " she said. " Other people might feel like they have settled and given up their passions for a practical goal but I love doing math and I like where I am right now. Accounting will get me a good job and dance can still be my pastime. " Instead of regretting her decision to not include dance as a factor in her future career, WiUiams learned to love other things just as much as dance. " My dad was an accountant and I worked for him one summer and tell in love with it, " she said. " After I had been off (dance) for sbc months I thought I would regret it, but I dance on the side. I guess I get the best of both worlds. " Nathan Adams has no trouble recalling the first painting he ever did. " My mom works neo-natal intensive care, and she had this one babv that was extremely sick, " Adams said. " The baby ' s name was Faith because her parents were really strong Christians and would come and kneel by the , 107 bed and pray every day. But the baby was clearly dying. And my mom would come home crying at night telling me about it. " Adams was inspired to paint a black canvas with a bright red and pink heart, the word " Faith " written in mrquoise, and Hebrews 11:1 written at the bottom: Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. " I mailed it to the family, " he said. " And that was how I started painting. " Adams, a dark-haired artist who is quick with a smile and quicker with a laugh, didn ' t always feel so inspired to paint. " I started in the eighth grade and then after two years I hated it, just completely hated it. And I decided I wanted to be a law ' er in about 11th grade. Then after my senior year I realized I was only doing that for monetary reasons and that I really did like being an artist. I wanted to do something that was fun and not something I was just doing for other reasons. " Adams ' preference might be painting, but he ' s never limited himself to one type of art. " The roots, " Adams said, puUing up his sleeve to reveal a tattoo of a tree on his upper right arm, " represent Jesus inside of us and what you ' re rooted in wiU eventually show through the brokenness on the outside. " He pulls his Chaco off his foot and points to three birds in mid-flight. " And the birds represent not remaining in your sin, like it would be dumb for the bird to stay on the ground and not Other people might feel like they have settled and given up their passions for a . practical goal but I love doing math and I like where I am right now. 5? Mary Williams Soph mo re Accounting Major fly and enjoy all the wonders of the earth; it represents the freedom to live without sin, because we are no longer enslaved to it. " Adams faced his doubts about the uncertaint} ' of his career and others questioned his choice as well. " When 1 first told my parents I wanted to pursue art, my dad was supportive, but said, ' Wouldn ' t you rather do something else and just do art on the side? " ' he said. " My mom supports me in anything 1 do, but said ' you can do it. ' But the one question they asked, and it ' s the one question everyone wants to know, is ' What do you want to do with it? What are you going to do with it? ' " It ' s a question that almost all art, theatre, music, dance and even some EngUsh majors receive. His answer? " I would like to open coffee shops and sell my art there, and use it as a ministry tool and just a place for fun, " he said. " I love the atmosphere of a coffee shop, how welcoming it is. " Adams said he doesn ' t feel he has to be the next Jackson Pollock. " A professional artist would be great, " he laughs.

Moments later, a man holding a sledgehammer slams it into the cold metal as students gasp and cover their eyes. Quinn smiles and asks him to do it again with a stack of concrete cinder blocks. While it might sound Uke a day at the circus, it ' s just a day in the life for the physics professor who has wanted to smash protons since middle school. He walks away unharmed from the experiment, which demonstrates the concept of inertia and energy conservation. The bed of nails demo is just one of multiple demos Quinn uses in his physical science classes to teach concepts that might be hard for some students to grasp. " The big thing that keeps people away from physics is the math, " he said. " Not everyone likes to do calculus and differential equations. Some people will never open a physics book because of that, but you can teach the laws of physics, at least conceptually, without anything more than basic arithmetic and algebra. " Senior Jajuan McNeil said he was a litde nervous about the class at first because he knew there would be math involved. However, Quinn made it enjoyable with constant interaction, he said. " He made physical science relevant, " McNeil said. " He didn ' t just teach in front of the class and make you learn from pictures in the books; we went to different labs and he illustrated the things that we were supposed to learn. " Although Quinn ' s main concentration is in particle physics (he teaches a graduate class in the subject), he said his physical science class is definitely the most fun for liim because he is able to incorporate demonstrations with almost every lecture. V -m- NXHiether shooting lightning bolts from his fingers to explain electric potential or dropping different weighted objects from atop a ladder to drive home the concept of gravitational force, he is always finding unique methods to educate and involve his students. " It ' s a lot of ' hands-on ' and seeing how the world works, " Quinn said. " A lot of the class gets to participate. I tr} ' to use as many of them as I can, so when we talk about abstract stuff, they are going to understand a litde better. " McNeil said Quinn ' s demos enabled him to have a better understanding of the subject matter. " They allowed us to participate and play a bigger role in class, " McNeil said. " They were provocative enough to keep our attention and cool enough to keep us awake at 8 in the morning. " While the laws of physics don ' t exactiy come with a chance of failure, sometimes the equipment used in Quinn ' s demos can cause a few problems. With a wooden platform on a string and a cup of water on the platform, Quinn demonstrates centripetal force by swinging it around in a big circle without losing a drop of water. " One time, I was swinging it around towards the class and getting them all excited, " Quinn said, waving his hands in a circular motion. " The knot on the string came undone, the platform flew out into the crowd and drenched one young lady. That was a very interesting day. " Quinn enjoys the reactions of his students, even if water is being splattered ever ' where. " You get a lot of ' Oh, wow! ' reactions because there are so many of these things people never even really consider, " Quinn said. " The demonstrations have a real impact on their daily Uyes. " The most consistent reaction he gets is when he explains Hght and different color spectrums. " Sunlight is not the same as florescent light, " he said. " So ladies, when you put on your make up in front of florescent lighting, you need to be careful if you select a bright red lipstick because when you walk out of the house, you will look like a stop sign. These girls start taking down notes really quick. " Quinn believes it is important to tea ch physics because it enables people to be responsible members of society and have an understanding of how the world works. " Not everyone is going to be a big engineering bridge-builder, but it is important for everyone to have a basic idea of the concepts of physics, " Quinn said. " It sounds Like pretty tough stuff, but it reaUy isn ' t that difficult. It ' s just a little bit of arithmetic.

AUGHTER ' A IFF. Angela Rogalski ' s alarm clock screams at 4:30 a.m., having only been set a few hours earlier. She rolls out of bed and makes her way through the silent house, careful not to disturb her sleeping family, to prepare a morning cup of coffee. After checking her e-mail, she makes break- fast for her six -year-old daughter, Harley, and mother, who recendy moved in with her after suffering a sudden stroke. " It ' s tough juggling two other people and their needs, but it has to be done, " Rogalski said. She wakes Harley soon after, helping her dress and get ready for the 6:20 bus. " I would really love to take her to school every day but I just can ' t, " she said. By 6:30, she is out the door and heading to campus from her home in Abbeville. It ' s going to be a long day. She ' s a mother, aspiring writer, hard-working employee and junior journalism student. Between balancing family Ufe, a part-time job at Walmart and a regular column in The Daily Mississippian, her fuU course load keeps her occupied. A typical day includes morning classes, an afternoon shift at work, and heading home at 6 p.m. to cook, do laundry, clean the house, and putting her daughter and mother to bed. Right around the time her husband and family fall asleep, she does her homework. When she has the occasional free moment, Ro- galski sits in front of her computer and writes whatever comes to mind. " There ' s just something about words, I can ' t even explain it, " she said. " I never really outline a story, I just sit down and write as it comes to me. " As an opinion columnist and freelance writer Rogalski had taken a few writing classes, but always wanted to go back to school. " I took an English class with PhyUis Nobles. I knew I liked her the minute I heard her speak, " she said. " She challenged us to think outside of the box and just write whatever we were cur- rendy feeling. " But it was a chance visitor to the Walmart Photo Department that changed Rogalski ' s life forever when journalism professor Samir Husni convinced her to earn her degree. " Dr. Husni often came into Walmart to de- velop picmres, " she said. " We talked often and one day I had mendoned how much I loved to write. He gave me his contact information and told me that if I was ever interested in going back to school, specifically for journalism, I should give him a call. " She enrolled a week later. She ' s typically the oldest smdent in her classes, but Rogalski said she ' s had a positive experi- ence so far. " The faculty, the students, everyone is so nice. I ' m treated exacdy the same as everyone else. " Rogalski said sometimes classes are hard to focus on with everything else going on in life. " It ' s all about making time, " she said. " The thing I struggle with the most is finding time to play with my Utde girl. She ' s 6 and doesn ' t qviite understand why I have to sit down and do homework all the time instead of playing with her. I am a perfectionist. I want to be ex- cellent at everything I do. I want a 4.0. 1 want to be the best mom. " " You can try to do aU that, but in the end, we ' re only human.

While a college education is often associated with spending four years in a classroom listening to lectures, many professors are branching out to apply traditional teaching methods to real-world experiences. Imagine sitting in a quaint cafe in Venice, sipping a cappuccino and watching the gondolas drift through the cit ' ' s canals. Each January during Wintersession, professors Ronald and Natalie Schroeder teach literature in Venice as a study abroad coarse. Prior to departure, students read a series of assignments that involve Venetian culture and liistory, and then have the chance to see what they ' ve studied in person. Students walk the same streets as characters in Shakespeare ' s Othello and Merchant of Venice. Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College students Emilie Dayan, Sarah Story and Marie Wicks, an international studies major, travelled to Dresden, Germany, with English instructor Gregory Heyworth in June 2010 to help restore a 14th-century Middle French poem that, until recently, had been lost in leftover rubble following the 1945 bombing of Dresden during World War II. Some students see the world, while others can gain real-world work experience in their own back) ' ard. Journalism instructor Robin Street ' s advanced pubUc relations course teaches students the techniques needed to work in public relations bv providing them with an internship in local public relations and marketing departments. Students work four hours a week at their assigned internship, which counts for 40 percent of the student ' s grade. Internships are based in Oxford, Tupelo, Memphis and Jackson, and include profit and non-profit organizations in banks, healthcare, tourism, event planning and other sectors. Students write press releases, plan events, surve public opinion and present an entire x — H7- campaign as a part of their assignment. After completing the course, students will have developed a portfolio containing their work that is fit to show a future employer. Senior Haley Huerta interned at the Oxford Chamber of Commerce in Fall 2010. " It is definitely a resume-builder, " Huerta said. " I now have experience on my resume so a future employer will be impressed to see that I was able to juggle school and an internship all in one semester. " Huerta worked on a campaign to promote business growth in Oxford. She participated in ribbon cuttings for new businesses and attended after-hours events. " I learned how to dme-manage when it comes to deadlines, " Huerta said. " I also was able to see all the important details that the Chamber does for the Oxford community. They really have a lot on their plate, and as an intern I was able to do a lot of hands-on work. " Anthropology students have the option of attending " field school " during the summer for hands-on experience in Mississippi and Belize. Smdents who study in Mississippi stay near Clarksdale and work at Carson Mounds, one of the largest prehistoric ceremonial centers in the Mississippi alluvial valley. Students are exposed to field survey techniques and study the structure and nature of the mounds that cover the site. Students who travel to Belize work with the Caves Branch Archeological Survey Program, which researches the history of Mayan civilizations who once inhabited the Caves Branch River Valley. The program is a branch of the university ' s study abroad program and provides students with intensive hands-on exposure to many archeological methods. Journalism smdents participated in an investigative, in-depth reporting project called the Delta Project in 2010, which was aimed at covering the effects of poverty in the Mississippi Delta and educating people on the true conditions of the largely destimte area. Nine students spent a semester reporting under the direction of a team of journalism instructors; the project was led by Bill Rose and Patricia Thompson. " The Delta Project is designed to provide students with real-life journalism experience outside the classroom and participation in a project that wUl wind up on the desks of editors across America, " Rose said. The smdents ' work was used to create a magazine and video documentary Monthly trips to the Delta allowed smdents to immerse themselves in the culture while gaining in- depth reporting experience. " I hope students who take this course will find it the most rewarding they have ever taken, " Rose said. " I think they will benefit enormously in terms of improving their reporting and writing and their knowledge of what it ' s like to work at this craft, " Rose said. story BETH THOMAS photos ELIZABETH BEAVER Delta photos courtesy of MEEK SCHOOL OF JOURNALISM -416- TOP LEFT MIDDLE Senior Marketing Communications major Haley Huerta completed her internship at the Oxford Chamber of Commerce in Fall 2010.

Dealing with the daily routine of classes, studying and social life is hard enough, but Burke also tackles the challenges of being the voice of the entire student body, a task that requires days that begin at 5 a.m. Beep. Beep. Beep. The alarm screeches at 5 a.m., waking senior and Associated Student Body president Vir- ginia Burke to the sound of a new morning. She gets up and grabs her planner to browse over the day ' s events; it ' s a Tuesday without any speeches, luncheons or receptions — a rarit} ' , which allows her to dress casuaUy for the day. She dons a long-sleeved T-shirt, North Face vest and Nike shorts, the average appear- ance of the clothing belaying the overachiever within. The alarm system beeps as she opens the door to the frigid morning air, signifying her departure and causing her roommates to sdr in their beds. They won ' t wake up for another five hours. She arrives at school around 6:30 a.m., mak- ing her way to the ASB office located on the union ' s top floor. For the next half hour she makes a to-do list, answers e-mails a nd does as much smdying as possible before making her way downstairs for a 7 a.m. breakfast meet- ing with Larry Ridgeway, vice chancellor for smdent affairs and fellow early riser. Only a handful of bleary-eyed students and in- structors lounge at tables as the two get in line for breakfast. Magnolia Kitchen for Ridgeway, Chick-fil-A for Burke. Burke talks about current issues affecting the campus, offering Ridgewav a perspecdve on current student opinion. They also discuss an upcoming launch for the Legacy Campaign, a major fund-raising endeavor that Burke and the ASB Cabinet have taken on this year. Burke cherishes her time with the vice chancel- lor. " It gives me a time to talk to someone if I need guidance on an issue and I am not really sure, " she said. " Anytime we have sometliing big going on and I don ' t know where to turn to he can direct me to the right person to talk to. This year the ASB wants to expand prindng on campus, a long-standing student complaint. But with the multimde of administrators, they weren ' t sure where to start. Ridgeway directed her to administrators who helped the ASB understand the current printing situation and how they could expand it for students. Burke said she has an open and honest rela- tionship with top administrators like Ridgeway and believes her time working with them on issues during the summer before the school year began helped cement a comfortable give- and-take relationship. " I feel like I can be very honest with (adminis- trators) if something their department is doing is not what I think is the most beneficial, " she said. " That doesn ' t always mean that they change or alter what they ' re doing, but a lot of times they will take what I say and what the students say into consideration. " One of the most controversial topics Burke has tried to tackle is implementing a dead period, a time before finals without classes so smdents can better prepare for their exams. It was a kev plank in her campaign platform. She has worked with the provost ' s office to assign a task force to look at the different ways to approach it. As she begins to list die other things she wants to get done this year, Burke immediately becomes enthused. Her passion is obvious, saving her spends 40 percent of her time and effort on the ASB, 40 percent on academics and 20 percent to her family and social life, including Delta Gamma sorority, her boyfriend and friends. " She is such a hard worker, " said fellow classmate Joey Ratcliff " She genuinely has a passion for having students ' voices heard and [looking out for] the general well being of the student body; it is something tiiat people look up to a lot. On the outside she is very sweet, comforting and genuinely wants to get to know you, but then she also has this v ery strong passion to do what ' s right and this firm notion to get tilings done. Coverall she is just a great person who I admire. " Burke and Ratcliff were both orientation leaders the summer after Burke ' s freshman year. Ratcliff s;ud being an orientation leader allowed them to truly understand what it - 53- means to give back to the university. That work helped inspire Burke to get involved in student government. Burke tries to attend as many campus events as she can, spreading herself thin, but also reach- ing out to many different constituencies. She attended the Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Trans- gender (GLBT) reception in October 2010, which she attended in support of Diversity Month. After she walked around the room and chatted with nearly every person there, she sat down and had a conversation in Spanish with Chad Gardner, a smdent she had just met. He was delighted when she wanted to discuss her trip to Ecuador, part of an exchange program before her sophomore year where she took classes to improve her Spanish. " It was the first time I had ever been in a country by myself where they didn ' t speak EngUsh, " she said. " We didn ' t have TV or the Internet and I was alone most of the time because my host mother was divorced and she worked all day, so whenever I would get home she wouldn ' t be there. " Gardner said they also talked about school and bonded over their common interest in the Spanish language. He said her presence at the GLBT reception meant a lot to him. " If she can lead an example of acceptance maybe she will be able to change others ' minds, " Gardner said. In the fumre, Burke, an international studies, Spanish and economics major with an envi- ronmental studies minor, sees herself leading the way for change, whether it is in education policy. Teach for America or teaching abroad. She also has a goal to travel to every continent by the time she is 25, having already marked five continents off her Ust. " I want to do something the year after I gradu- ate that I could never do again, " she said. " I am very interested in going to D.C. and getting involved with some kind of internship. I really don ' t think I want a career in politics by any means, but I do think I would learn a lot from some type of internship. " Burke would like to Hve in a big cit) ' , a consid- erable change from her hometown of Charles- ton, Mo. (pop. 4,000). " People are always very surprised that I grew up in a small town, I lived on a farm and my dad is a farmer, " Burke said. As she talks about her family, most of which live in her hometown, she smiles. When asked if she ever plans on living in Charleston again, her expression becomes somber, not skipping a beat when explaining there ' s no fumre there for her. She ' s come too far, learned too much about the world, to go back to a place where oppormnities for her are limited. For now, her fumre is focused on the ASB, which she hopes to transform into a more transparent, more accessible organization. To do this, the ASB has started mentoring reme- dial freshman courses and becoming more accessible to the smdent body. " I hope when I leave (my impact wiU be) that more people feel like their voice was heard, and that more people will know what ASB is doing for smdents and what ASB initiatives are, " Burke said. Her biggest challenge? Knowing she only has a year as ASB president. " I wish that 1 could fix everything and make everything perfect and when I leave this office and this university ' that we have addressed every single problem and every single need, " Burke said. " It just isn ' t possible in the time that 1 have. " Ask Burke to describe herself and she hesi- tates, trying to pick just the right words. " I ' m not the smartest person and I don ' t know everything and I don ' t know how to address every situation, but I do always try to learn as much as I can. I try to find a way to get things done that 1 commit to and that I think are important. " Burke looks up, not for approval or any type of reaction; she simply waits for another ques- tion, anticipating another challenge. story VICTORIA BOATMAN photos ALEX EDWARDS ASB WHAT THEY DO (BECAUSE NOBODY EVER TOLD US) Appoints students to standing committees Runs the Student Senate Acts as a liaison between Students and Faculty, Administration, and Staff Plans several community service events [ Helps run and funds campus programs and student organizations Promotes student involvement Sponsors the Freshman Focus Groups I ■ ■ U4 T ' S NOT OVER (YET For some students, one degree just isn ' t enough A SUCCINCT GUIDE TO TAKING A BEASTLY TEST This is a standardized examination required for prospective medical students.

Counting down the days, weeks and semesters until graduation seems to be Tital to the college experience, but what comes after the caps are thrown and the real world begins is sometimes overlooked. For many students, getting an entry-level job, starting a famih- or simply packing up and moving away is the next big step in growing up. But many students con- tinue down the road of higher education by applying to graduate or professional school. Unlike applying to a universit) ' or college for an under- graduate degree, the application process for graduate school is more complex. Not onh ' is an application required, but letters of recommendation from undergraduate professors, tran- scripts and in some cases, statements of purpose, are also part of the process. But before the application process begins, students are faced with preparing for an entry exam which often determines what schools will even consider accepting them. Most smdents apphing to grad school take the GRE, while those planning to attend medical school must take the MCAT. Law school attendees cram hard for the LSAT and pharmacy school applicants need the PCAT. -+26- Sophomore biology major Andrew Matrick has already cracked open the books for die MCAT, which he will not take until June 2011. Matrick took a pracdce test as a freshman, and he said taking it so early has encouraged him to work harder than ever. " I did better than expected for a freshman, " Matrick said. " That helped to modvate me to fix what I needed to fix. " After a summer of looking over materials, Matrick already has a plan in modon for study- ing second semester. He is taking a course every Sunday for five to six hours and hopes to allot 1 more hours a week to studying. " I plan to study enough to not be nervous, " Matrick said. Although it might seem strange to start prepar- ing so early, students are often not prepared when they take the MCAT, LSAT or a similar test for the ftrst time. " I didn ' t prepare the first time I took the LSAT, " senior Katie Ryan Van Kamp said. " I ' m taking it again in October. " This time around, Van Kamp does not intend to slack on preparation. She is taking a six-week LSAT class that meets three days a week for three hours and 1 5 min- utes and takes a practice LSAT once a week. 120 " I feel like the class is making me feel more con fident, " Van Kamp said. " Of course, you are always going to be nervous when one test affects your chance of getting into law school. " Junior Melissa Newman has already taken her PCAT, and was not surprised by the difficulty of the test. " It was really long, but it was pretty much what I expected it to be, " Newman said. " I got my score back, and I got what I needed. " Although the tests seem to be the most stress- ful part for post-grad applicants, the entire process can be long and tiring, even moreso when students are admitted and begin graduate or professional school work. " Undergraduate was difficult, but doable, " said Taylor Smith, economics graduate student. " Graduate school borders on the impossible a lot of the time. We ' re usually only taking three courses a semester, and thank God, because it ' s really heavy. " A night of five or six hours of homework is a good day. Smith said, but sometimes he doesn ' t get that lucky. In addition to his studies. Smith works as an economics instructor. " Most of us are on some type of assistant- ship, " he said. " We get paid a stipend each month, and basically we agree to work either 1 or 20 hours each week for the university. For that, we get our tuition paid for and a stipend. " Smith added that first or second year graduate smdents usually work as teaching assistants until they feel they are ready to teach on their own. " It ' s been a great experience, " he said. " I love teaching. I love having the interaction with the undergraduates. Those few students that are like ' This is awesome ' — you live for those students. " Even though Smith is in his second year in the economics program, h e is not new to the " out- side world " that lurks beyond graduation day. I ' po Mer ier iteot M-tl km 811 Smith spent three years working as a computer! i programmer after graduating with a mathemat-j n [ ics degree in 2006 before deciding to come back to school.

Janna Montgomery also followed her spouse to graduate school to complete her master ' s degree in choral music education. «asi(j Jitiioi bus liato 101 Tl Upon completing our undergraduate degrees, i husband and I moved to Oxford so he I )uld pursue a master ' s degree in English at le Universit} ' of Mississippi with the mutual nderstanding that I would be ' next, ' " Mont- omery said. ifter taking a full-time position in the Of- ice of Admissions, Montgomery enrolled in art-time classes to fulfill a master ' s degree 1 theatre. Unfortunately, after nine hours ■f graduate level theatre classes, the theatre raduate programs were discontinued and ' lontgomerv was at a loss. uckily, she had a plethora of musical classes rom her undergraduate school and was hired or a position in the Office of Choral Activi- les in 2004. " Upon hearing about my interest nd background, my supervisors were kind nough to allow me to start singing with the Jniversit} ' Chorus during my lunch break, " .lontgomery said. " I started investigating what : would take to finally obtain the music degree had desired all along. " Vorking in the choral office, Montgomery got n insider ' s look at how the music department unctioned. She soon realized the prestige of he music department and asked a single ques- ion around the office: " What would it take to ;et an actual music degree? " because she was a full-time employee, Mont- ;omery was able to take two classes free of harge. In doing this, she will be able to gradu- ate in May 201 1, " and after that, I don ' t really want to think about it, " she said. The love of music runs deep, and between the theory classes and choir rehearsals, teaching and performance coincide. Though Montgomery didn ' t take a traditional avenue in achieving her master ' s degree, she said she " wouldn ' t change a thing. I learned a lot on the way — I learned humilit} ' . " For Ben Child, his interest in WiUiam Faulkner and Southern literature led him to pursue his Ph.D in English. " The English department is especially strong in these areas, and I was excited to find a program that matched my interests, " he said. " I stuck around to pursue a Ph.D because of all the great people Fve been able to work with and because Oxford is a fantastic — and relatively affordable — place to live. " As a fourth-year graduate student. Child expects to be here for a couple more years. In addition to taking classes, he works as a teach- ing assistant as part of the fellowship offered by the English department. " It ' s a great opportunit} ' to get experience teaching, " he said. " I like to attend the classes myself and learn from the professors. It ' s also great to work so closely with the students. " The combination of work, teaching and classes " Pursuing a graduate degree is no small invest- ment of time and needs to be approached with a healthy measure of patience, " Child said. " But it ' s a rare experience to be able to focus so intentiy on the thing that interests you.

While the ingredients are similar to regular energy-enhancing drinks, many of the concentrated shots include the psycho- stimulant citicoline, which is often used to treat memory loss and dizziness. Ellingburg said though she occasionally opts for the fast-acting energy shots, she doesn ' t like the resulting side effects. " The effect comes much quicker and causes my heart to race, almost as if I ' ve taken Adderall or something, " she said. " Who wants to feel that way when they ' re just trying to smdy? " AdderaU (dextroamphetamine amphetamine) is one of many types of prescription medication available for those diagnosed with ADHD reported to drastically improve concentration and increase mental alertness. Its brain-enhancing reputation gets around, however, leading some students who don ' t have the mental disorder to seek out those with extra medication to spare. When Lindsay , a sophomore English major, entered college in Fall 2009, she was overwhelmed her first semester with 1 8 hours of classes and too many extracurricular activities. " I had to stay awake until 3 a.m. almost every night just to get my regular smdying done, " she said. " I would drink Coke, coffee, whatever helped me stay awake, even if it wore off after a few minutes. " Another female student living on Lindsay ' s floor noticed her working one night and offered her something she couldn ' t refuse. " She gave me a handful of (ADHD) pills and said she never took them. I didn ' t even know what type they were, " Lindsay said. " All I know is when I took the first one, I was hooked ten minutes later. " Lindsay said the medication didn ' t just make her feel more alert, but increased her productivit} ' and improved her retention. " (ADHD medication) helps you focus in a way that just isn ' t possible when you ' re sleep- deprived, " she said. " It ' s a miracle drug. " She continues to use the drug on a regular basis, borrowing at least three different t} ' pes of ADHD medication from friends and acquaintances. While Lindsay acknowledges the risk involved when illegally taking prescription drugs, her primary concern is potential side effects. ADHD patients on medication usually have routine visits with a psychiatrist for monitoring drug use and its effect, if any, on the body. Though it is rare, some ADHD medication, particularly stimulants, can lead to cardiovascular problems and sudden death. They can also complicate or worsen conditions Like depression or anxiet) ' . Despite the risk, Lindsay said nothing has deterred her from taking medication when she feels like she needs it. " I stand to lose more if I stop doing well academically than if I stop taking the pills, " she said. " I just can ' t let that happen.

" It was definitely a successful year, " assistant coach Michael White said. " Not as successful as we would have Uked it to have been but we got a lot accomplished and we got better throughout the year. If you can make an NIT Final Four I think it ' s something to be proud I faic Jam The team maintained a 12-2 record through its first 14 games, ranking 14th nationally. Unformnately, the team wasn ' t able to keep up that pace for the remainder of the season. JIT lose " I guess lack of chemistry caught up with us a litde bit, but it was a step in the right direction, and it gave our guys in this program a taste of getting back there, " White said. " We had gotten into that level a couple years earlier. It ' s | one of the goals you shoot for as a team. " [tsl ithei in otan Dslei Tictf tlOCK Following their 12-2 start, the team continued to surge as they won four of their next six match-ups to stand at 16-4 through the first 20 i thei games of the season. Yet, the two additional losses were both heartbreakers, including a five-point home defeat to in-state rival Mississippi State. " To lose a game Uke that and then it comes around to bite you at the end of the season, it tough, " Guard Zach Graham said. One week later, the team traveled to KjioxviIle|i(jii[ to face No. 9 Tennessee. Though it looked Uke the boys would leave Knoxville with a signature win under their belts after a winning iltntf, first half, the Volunteers came back, resulting i «[)tJ5 in another crushing defeat against a nationally ranked team. " If we would have beat Mississippi State one out of the two times we played them or beat Tennessee, it would have been a much different year for us, " Warren said. omet It coil hi White added, " We would have been a (NC7 A|lt, tournament team ... Basketball is such a game of emotion and confidence. I guess your mentality and your team confidence level gets swayed pretty easily one way or the other. " After the 16-4 start, the team hit a mid-seasot slump, dropping five of their next six along with losing their national ranking. However, they won their last four games of the regular ason to clinch a share of the SEC West rown, which provided them a first round bye 1 the SEC Tournament. Together, the Rebels atched the NCAA Selection show, but didn ' t :ceive an invitation to the big dance. ' hey did get the chance to participate in the National Invitational Tournament, receiving a ivo seed by the tournament committee, and ruising to three straight postseason wins over oy, Memphis and Texas Tech en-route to the JIT Semifinals, which are held at New York ]ity ' s legendary Madison Square Garden. It showed us that we could have been in the ther tournament, " Warren said. " We had ome close games that we pulled out in the JIT. I just wish we could have pulled out some lose games that we lost early in the season here we would have been in the NCAA. We njoyed the (NIT) run while it lasted. " Playing in the Garden, there ' s nothing like , " Graham added. " It ' s like the mega of asketball. It ' s definitely a great experience 3r any player being in New York Cit) ' placing asketball but again, like I said, we want to be 1 that other tournament. " he team ' s season would come to a close 1 their next game when they fell 68-63 to a rocious Dayton team (who went on to defeat Jorth Carolina in the final to capture the Durnament championship). We never meshed as well as we would have oped that we wanted, " White concluded. That cohesion that we reached for everyday, e just never got there. Some teams do and ome teams don ' t and I don ' t mean to sit ear and complain about a team that won 24 ames but our goal is to make the (NCAA) Durnament and we don ' t feel like we ' re as ilented this year from top to bottom but opefully as a team, we ' re better. " md the one thing Warren would like people 3 most remember about he and his teammates rom 2009-10 is the toughness they brought to ae court each night.

Much of the pre-season opdmism stemmed from boasting an experienced, seven-member senior class and eleven returning players that had started at least one game the previous season. The team also saw the return of all three pitchers and all but one position starter from 2009. " This senior class knew that they were the fumre of Ole Miss, " Dickerson said. " Coming into their final season, they wanted to leave a legacy at Ole Miss and in the SEC. They had already accomplished so many things, but 1 think that it was important for them to accomplish ... more things while they were here, one being to have a winning season, which they had been so close to the last three years. " The team received honors for their hard work and dedication. For the second time in her career, Senior Lauren GriU was named to the LouisvUle Slugger AU- American third team, making her the first two-time Ail-American in school history. 140 " It was an amazing honor for Lauren to be named an AU- American for the second time in her career, " Dickerson said. " It just shows what type of player she is and the talent she brought to our program. " GriU was also a 2008 first team AJl-American. She started aU 56 games during the 2010 season, and led the team with a .443 batting average, eight home runs, 39 RBI and a .705 slugging percentage. Her .569 on-base percentage this season is the fifth-best mark in SEC history, while her 44 career homers are tied for sixth best in league history. The goal of a 2010 winning season was accomplished, ending the season with a 29-27 record, and an 8-19 record in the Southeastern Conference. story MOLLY LODEN photos AUSTIN MCAFEE, NICK TOCE, UNIVERSITY IMAGING SERVICES 19 DATE OPPONENT RESULT 2 11 Arizona State L 13-0 2 11 West Michigan L 21-16 2 12 Oregon State W 6-3 2 12 Ohio W 7-3 2 13 Portland State W 5-3 2 19 Pittsburgh W 1-0 2 19 Minnesota W 3-0 2 20 Maryland L 2-0 2 20 Florida Atlantic W 2-0 2 26 Centenary W 9-1 2 26 Murray State W 5-2 2 27 SIU Edwardsville L 5-4 2 28 SIU Edwardsville W 4-2 3 3 Cental Arkansas W 7-6 3 5 Mercer W 11-0 3 6 UT Martin L 7-6 3 6 Tennessee Tech W 4-3 3 7 Rhode Island L 7-2 3 7 Georgia Tech L 1-0 3 10 South Carolina W 3-0 3 13 Florida L 12-2 3 14 Florida L 5-3 3 17 LSU L 2-1 3 17 LSU L 7-1 3 20 Mississippi State W 6-4 3 20 Mississippi State W 9-2 3 21 Mississippi State L 11-5 3 27 Tennessee L 3-2 3 27 Tennessee L 6-3 3 31 Alcorn L 9-1 3 31 Alcorn W 9-0 4 10 Georgia L 9-5 4 10 Georgia L 6-0 4 11 Georgia L 6-5 4 15 Samford W 3-1 4 15 Samford W 7-3 4 17 Alabama L 8-3 4 17 Alabama L 14-0 4 18 Alabama L 3-1 4 24 Auburn L 3-0 4 24 Auburn L 3-2 4 29 Central Arkansas W 11-1 5 1 Arkansas L 5-0 5 8 Kentucky L 2-0 5 8 Kentucky L 4-2 5 9 Kentucky W 5-3 TOP Ole Miss Softball players practice pre-game.

The youngest of ten children, the Kirui broth- ers ' athletic ability paved the road from Litein, a smaU town in Kenya ' s Rift Valley Province, all the way to the Southeastern Conference, where they rank among the top cross-country track-and-field athletes in the country. Barnabas, a senior distance runner who based his college decision pardy on finding an American universit} ' with weather similar to the temperate Kenyan climate, completed his final year of NCAA eUgibility in 2010. Though his ego measures smaller than his 5 ft.-5 in., 1 18-pound stature, Barnabas ranks as the best distance runner in the history of the university and one of the best runners in the United States, having earned three SEC cross country championship tides, an NCAA track- and-field title in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, four individual SEC track-and-field tides, two SEC Outdoor Runner of the Year awards and three-time selection as SEC Cross Country Athlete of the Year. Martin, a junior who transferred to Ole Miss after originaUy attending Southwest Com- munity College, joined the cross-country and track-and-field teams in 2008, and has earned an SEC tide in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Barnabas ' senior year was one of the men ' s team ' s best in school history with a fifth-place finish at the SEC Championships, the best win since 1996. • Barnabas is the fourth runner in league history to claim three SEC Cross Country titles and the only runner who has earned more than one in school history. He raced to the 8K victory with a time of 23:52.07, beating Auburn ' s Ben Cheuivot by almost ten seconds.

Logan Waites led the women ' s cross-country team to their best showing since 1 990. Waites turned in the school ' s highest SEC Women ' s Championships finish ever, placing 16th with a 21:27.71 time in the 6K, pushing the team to a ninth place finish. Former soccer player Katie Breathitt wasn ' t far behind with a 29th-place finish. " Barnabas ran a super race, " Head Coach Joe Walker said. " He and Coach (Doug) Blackwell had a great race plan. On the third lap, he broke the race open for a commanding victory against very good competition. " Martin placed 14th with a time of 24:41.91, while freshman Kipchirchir Kiptoo placed 25th with a time of 25:03.66. The men ' s season officially ended when Barn- abas ran the final race of his coUege career at the NCAA Cross Country Championships in November 2010, a day slated to be the pinnacle of his career. However, pain from a prior back injury forced Barnabas to drop out of the race after a strong start. " Like Barnabas, we were disappointed that his back would not allow him the finish to his career that he deserved, " Walker said. " But this doesn ' t diminish the great career he ' s had and how well he has represented Ole Miss, both with his running and his academic and commu- nity ' contributions. We are proud of him.

After an- other scoreless double-overtime draw against LSU, they trailed Arkansas 3-0 in the first half, leaving any hopes of an SEC Tournament berth on life support. However, the team rallied for a 4-4 double- overtime draw against the Razorbacks, which sparked a late postseason push after back-to- back victories against Kentucky and Vander- bUt. " It showed the character of the team, " Mott said. " I felt like up until the last 22 minutes against Mississippi State, we showed great character in that last stretch. We kept fight- ing and kept finding ways to stay alive (for the SEC Tournament). " Needing a win against in-state rival Mississippi State to make the SEC Tournament, senior Taylor Cunningham led the team to an early 1-0 lead, but a victory just wasn ' t in the cards as the Bulldogs came back to win 2-1, bringing the Rebels ' season to an abrupt end. " It should burn, " Mott said. " It should be something that stays with them for a while. I know it is for us coaches. When vou have it all in front of you and you ' re not able to seal the deal, it ' s hard for a competitor and that ' s what happened. We didn ' t finish the job and it ' s painful. " After a season of transition, the team played its best soccer down the stretch, save the 2-1 season-ending loss to Mississippi State. The team will only lose senior Taylor Cunningham while juniors Kelsey Breathitt and Abbie Cur- ran wiU return from injury leave. The coaches and players will have an extra year of familiarit} ' and experience for next year, which could bode well for the futxire of the program. " I felt like the girls bought in and the effort was there, " Mott said. " I think they were buy- ing into everything, so I feel good about that going forward and where the program is going. (This season) is a building block. It ' s a starting point for us to get better. And we have to be more committed and work harder as we look forward to the spring.

K solid 21 -point lead against the non-confer- nce team was enough to presume victory, specially coming off back-to-back winning leasons under the leadership of Head Coach liouston Nutt and the last-minute addition of iormer Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli. Irhe Grove was buzzing with mendon of |ieisman winners and nadonal championships, toping that after decades of inconsistent per- lormance in the Southeastern Conference, Ole vliss ' footbaU program was back on the rise. Then, something went wrong. Toward the end of the game, a wave of con- tusion surged through the campus as word Ijuickly spread that Jacksonville State had ral- lied in the second half Hushed silence crippled I he early celebradon as tailgaters scrambled to Iheir radios, televisions and cell phones. Less than a mile away in the stadium, the dam- age had already been done. I nd the team, rendered incapable of recover- ing from a devastating second half, lost 49-48 In double overtime by Jacksonville State in Ivhat Nutt called the loss the worst of his |:areer. rWe knew this would be a challenging year, " Nutt said. " But we didn ' t expect this. " I fter the opening defeat, the team regrouped. winning three of their next four games as they prepared for a nationally televised match-up with defending national champion, Alabama. The team ' s 23-10 defeat in Tuscaloosa led to two more losses; with such struggle so early on, the team had now placed themselves in a major hole. If they had hoped to earn a bowl bid invite, they had to win three of their final four games. The Rebels looked to be on the right track with a fourth win against non-conference op- ponent, Louisiana-Lafayette. However, that small victory would be the team ' s last, falling to Tennessee, Louisiana State and in-state rivals, Mississippi State, and finishing the season with an overall record of 4-8 and a 1-7 record in SEC play. But no one could seem to forget Jacksonville State. " We got off to the wrong start way back in September, " Nutt said. " That made it tough and it was an uphill struggle from that first game, all the way through. " Senior players said though thev didn ' t exit on the positive note they ' d envisioned at the start of training camp, they still carry with them special memories from their time being a part of the program. " We ' ve been through the ups and the downs but that ' s only helped me grow as a man, " senior cornerback Jeremy McGee said. " It was a great experience being able to plav here. " Wliile there isn ' t a simple answer to explain why the 2010 season was such a disappoint- ment, several contributing factors were at play. " The biggest thing we were missing was lead- ership, " defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix said. " I didn ' t feel like we had a true leader through- out the season and it showed in a whole lot of adverse situations. " Though pre-season anticipation centered around senior Nathan Stanley, who was slated to fill the starting quarterback slot, a last- minute controversial decision altered the roster and shed a critical light on the universit}-. Jeremiah Masoli, who months earlier led the Oregon Ducks to the 2010 Rose Bowl, was from Oregon ' s team shortiy after for two run- ins with police, one of which involved allega- tions of laptop theft. With one last year of eligibilit)- remaining, reports surfaced in Summer 2010 that Masoli was shopping around to play for another school. Several universities were reported to have shown interest in the California native, but only one could convince him to play. The universit ' announced that Masoli had been accepted to the graduate school and was offered the chance to spend his last eligible year pla ing in Oxford. Despite the fact he was an experienced, dual-threat quarterback, his reputation followed him to Mississippi, and many lacked sympathy for someone with a criminal reputation. " I am really thankful to Ole Miss, (Athletics 150 « Director Pete Boone) and (ChanceUor Dan Jones) for giving me my last chance, " Masoli said at the time. " I understand that, and I am determined to do everything with it. " What seemed like a happy ending was soon interrupted when the NCAA deemed Masoli ineligible to play based on transfer student reguladons. Nutt and the university appealed the decision, launching a campus-wide waiting game which proved unbearable for some who thought MasoU was the team ' s dcket to another winning season, and even a championship. The NCAA ruled in the university ' s favor Sept. 3, 2010, granting Masoli eligibility one day before the Rebels ' ill-fated Jacksonville State match-up. But the preceding drama surrounding Masoli might have been too much for the team to handle. " I think we had some off-the-field issues that distracted our team, " senior defensive lineman Jerrell Powe said. " I think we played inconsis- tendy. We never could get consistent on or off the field, and I think that showed up on the field all year long. " Some players have struggled with assessing their own performance and trying to deter- mine w hat role they played in the team ' s losing season. " I felt Uke I could have made more plays, " senior Linebacker Jonathan Cornell said. " I felt Uke I could have done something different, but when it ' s all said and done you have to know you gave it your all. I gave it my all. I know the other guys did too. " Nix said the biggest thing the team wiU prob- ably take away from the season is learning to pay more attention to the little things. " You can ' t cut corners, and when you do, it shows up, " Nix said. " You have to learn from these mistakes. I feel Like we ' ll be much im- proved. We ' U be better coaches and players.

' J.IFE AMBITION To graduate from college and become successful OST PEOPLE DON ' T KNOW THIS I hate needles - e Pounding bass drums echo through the Grove as the Pride of the South marching band kicks off a growling, brass-driven rendition of " Rock and RoU. " A few feet away, beaming Rebelcttcs rock their hips to the beat on the Grove stage, complementing the cheer squad ' s spirited pregame performance. Palpable energy surges through the surrounding crowd. Thousands of fans cram in as tightly as possible to catch a glimpse of the final pep rally before making the journey to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium - hands clapping, heads shaking, feet stomping in tempo. A trumpet blast. " Hey! Go Rebs! " A whirling pirouette. " Hey! Go Rebs! " Poms fly in the air. " Hey! Go Rebs! WE ' RE GONNA BEAT THE HELL OUTTA YOU! HOTTY TODDY, GOSH ALMIGHTY, WHO THE HELL ARE WE? HEY! FLIM, FLAM - BIM, BAM - OLE MISS, BY DAMN! " The cheerleaders, dance team and marching band form the three-piece collaboration that is the nucleus of game day spirit in Oxford. The Pride of the South is pivotal to the game day experience through on-field pre-game and halftime performances, as well as playing plent} ' of crowd favorites during timeouts, including Sweet Caroline and Hey Baby. Although traditional tunes like " Dixie " and the fight song are popular staples, the band stays in tune with modern hits as well. The band performs three different halftime shows each year, each featuring music ranging from rock- ' n-roU oldies to the Dave Matthews Band. Though the band rehearses almost every weekday for about two hours, they begin learning the music and marching formations at an annual band camp held before school starts every fall. While the grueling Mississippi heat provides less-than-optimal rehearsal conditions, band members say the effort is more than worth it. • especially considering how many friends are made through the organization. " I knew no one at Ole Miss, " freshman Lauren Casady said. " The band takes up most of my time, so those are the people who I see all the time. From August to October, you sort of become a family. You have to get to know them. " Smiles on their taces, pom-poms front and center, stunt partners standing by, Ole Miss cheerleaders prepare to rally Ole Miss fans to cheer their team to victory. The team practices throughout the year, cheering in various sporting events such as football and basketball. Freshman Morgan Davis became interested in joining the squad after attending one of the stunt clinics on campus and describes her teammates as a big family. " The guys on the squad goof around a lot, " she said. Tryouts are highly competitive and those hoping to make the squad have to be willing to bend over backwards, literally. Tumbling and stunts are used often to keep the crowd ' s attention and spark support. The team also attends a national collegiate cheerleading competition. Throughout the year the squad prepares for this event by undergoing a strength training regiment, as well as learning choreographed routines. Many cheerleaders and mmblers, can be seen icing their ankles and backs. Sprained wrists are not unheard of either. Although the cheerleaders are considered athletes, the majority of their funding comes from fiindraising efforts, such as the stunt clinics they hold on campus. The cheerleaders are also available for events ranging from children ' s birthday parties to greeting alumni on game dav at the alumni house. But the game day experience remains incomplete without the Rebelettes performing with die marching band and dancing on the sidelines alongside the cheerleaders. The team rehearses with the marching band, where they develop routines to coordinate uith each song in the halftime show. The second piece within -465- each show is n ically reserved for the Rebelettes to perform a special routine while the band plays in place on the field. They are also actively involved with entertaining crowds at other spordng events. The team attends all home and away games as well as all conference bowl dtles. After football season, the girls perform at basketball games, women ' s sporting events and charit ' events. Fundraising efforts are constant, as they don ' t receive any outside funding. " The girls raise most of the money themselves, " spokesperson Amanda Hopper said. Other funds come from donations. The team hosts clinics and sells autographed posters to buy uniforms and compete nationally. Clinics not only benefit the team financially but also generate interest in the program. In addition to their performance skills, - 64- it is important that the women are well- rounded- Off the sidelines the Rebelettes are active in community service. Many of the team members visit local Lafayette County elementary schools where they read aloud to children. Others serve as mentors in programs Hke Leap Frog. The team also sponsors a philanthropy that is involved with raising money for muscular dystrophy and the Ronald McDonald House. Tough practices and painful injuries are not just restricted to the footbaU players on the gridiron. The band, Rebelettes and cheerleaders make sacrifices daily to contribute to game day spirit. Whether it ' s playing Jaws as the defense takes the field, cheerleaders tumbling in the end zone after a touchdown or the Rebelettes rallying the crowd with their kick Line, Ole Miss Spirit will remain a game day fixture for years to come. photos ALEX EDWARDS, AUSTIN MCAFEE, NICKTOCE HIS IS .E PLAYS ..• ' - -N.

I joined Zeta for various reasons, but the most important reason started while I was in high school. When I was in high school, I considered myself an average girl. I had low self esteem I wasn ' t outgoing I just thought very litde of myself When I became an Archonette, the litde sisters to Zetas, my whole outlook about myself changed. Being mentored by Zetas had a great influence on me. That is what made my decision so evident to become a part of this organizadon. I wanted to help a young girl or woman such as myself who didn ' t believe in the things that she could accomplish. The sort of things my organi- zadon is involved in include highway cleanup, kids mentoring program, fund raisers for March of Babies, and we do a Kids Day every year. We also donate baskets that contain various food items for less formnate families on Thanksgiving and Christmas. We love to visit the nearby retirement home Azalea Gardens to give them cards that we make ourselves. I can honestiy say that since I joined Zeta that I feel that I am making a difference in m} ' community. When we donated a Thanksgiv- ing basket to a less formnate family, I felt as if we really could change some things and make a difference in a person ' s life. There is so much more to being in a Greek organization than just party- ing. It ' s all about service for your community getting your hands dirty and uplifting those that are around you. My goals for my sorority are to have more young women who can carry on the principles of my found- ers. Since joining Zeta I have gained a whole new family and a wonder- ful group of friends. I have gained a true sisterhood and a bond that can never be replaced. I am and forever will be a finer woman of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated. . n ■»« k 11 ■ w n , TAU ETA CHAPTER OF ZETA PMI BETA SOROP ' INC. ETA PHI BETA [ -50 hen I ini- dally arrived at Ole Miss, I didn ' t think the Greek system was for me. None of my fam- ily members were Greek, and the traditional fraternity lifestyle wasn ' t something I was interested in. However, during my first two years on campus, a certain group of men caught my attention. These men treated each other as genuine brothers, were involved in great organizations on campus and in the community, and excelled academically. These men were members Alpha Phi Alpha. After doing research to find out more about the organization, I became very interested in joining. Its members had historically possessed all the qualities I strived to have as a man: the abilit) to persevere through any adversity life throws at you, a genuine desire to help one ' s community in any way possible, the courage to stand up for what ' s right even if the obstacles seem insurmountable, and a constant yearning to grow every single day, both academically and morally. Alpha Phi Alpha has excelled in these areas since the day it was founded at Cornell University on December 6th, 1906. Its founders had a vision, a vision that the fraternit} ' has held high and stayed true to year in and year out The fraternity ' s vision statement is this: " The objectives of this Fraternity shall be: to stimulate the ambition of its members; to prepare them for the greatest usefulness in the causes of humanity, freedom, and dignity of the individual; to encourage the highest and noblest form of manhood; and to aid down-trodden humanit) in its efforts to achieve higher social, economic and intellectual stams. " With members such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Fredrick Douglas, Thurgood Marshall, Eddie Robinson, and WE.B. Dubois, it was obvi- ous this fraternity took that vision statement very seriously. After taking all these facts into consideration, the choice was simple; I wanted to be an Alpha man. Since joining the organization in the Fall of 2010, 1 have been actively involved in numerous community service projects both on and off campus. We actively help with Ole Miss ' Green initiative by participating in Grove clean up after every home game as well as Highway Clean up. We regularly volunteer with tutorinJ at the local Second Baptist Church and the Boys and Girls Club. Remembering the importance of giving back to the elderly, we also go to the Azalea Gardens retirement home every month. Alpha Phi Alpha is also a part of numerous national programs such as Go-to-High School, Go-to-College, A Voteless People is a Hopeless people. Big Brother Big Sister, Boy Scouts of America, and College Life to Cor- porate Life Initiative just to name a few. However, my favorite part of being an Alpha has been the incredible brotherly bond I share with my fellow fraternity brothers. Knowing that no matter what happens, I ' U always have a group of dependable, intelligent men that I can caU, " Brother " and mean it in most sincere way possible. Choosing to become an Alpha has been om of the best decisions I have ever made, and I have no doubt that it has helped instill in me the qualities I aspire to have as a man. BROOKS TURNER, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. ALPHA PHI ALPHA I here are many great fraternities at Ole Miss. Each one for the most part is very proud of their history and what they are today Sigma Nu is no different. Going through Rush as a freshman is a challeng- ing experience. You are being pulled from so many different directions by fraternities who all have wonderful qualities. It is an important decision and one that will influence your college experience gready One of the reasons that I chose Sigma Nu was because to a man they were proud of being a Sigma Nu. They weren ' t obnoxious or over the top about it, you could just teU that they were happy where they were. Another reason was that they were very involved in all aspects of campus life and it was not considered not cool to try to make a name for yourself at Ole Miss. My experience here has been amazing and my goal for this fraternity is to keep its values and keep standing for the things that it always has. Hopefully in the future when I come back to visit Sigma Nu will still be a respected fraternity doing great things at Ole Miss. SIGMA NU i¥h t the 50th National Convention, my National President said " We are a move- ment, not a monu- ment. " This quotes sums up the reason why I joined Delta Sigma Theta: it is a sisterhood of college educated women in an organization that " change all angles " of the community by giving back through devoted service. My sorority was founded by twent} ' -two dynamic, young, educated college women who had a vision to start an organization on scholarship, sisterhood, and service. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. functions on national, regional, and local levels which focus on our Five Point Programmatic Thrust. This chapter. Lambda Sigma, implements various programs and community service projects on and off campus. We have implemented programs such as Girl Talks, Annual Spaghetti Dinner with the Thetas, Mr. Lambda Sigma Pageant, Health Awareness Week, Delta Weeks, and etc. Off campus, this chapter holds its annual Thanksgiving Dinner, volun- teers at Graceland Care Center, attends Boys and Girls Club where we have Ladies in 3D, a mentoring program for young teens, RACEWAY, and etc. One of my greatest memories was attending my first National Conven- tion in New Orleans over the summer. I was afforded the oppormnit} ' to see how Delta operated on a national level. I was a voting delegate at the convention so I got the chance to part take in the business side of Delta too. Other great memories are Black Alumni Weekend at the Uni- versity, Thanksgiving Dinner, Theta Encore, and our annual Sisterhood Retreats. Since joining this organization, my experiences have been amazing. I am a part of an organization that believes in giving back to society and a wonderful sisterhood of individuals who believe in the same things as I do. My goal for the organization is to continue to fulfill the legacy of the founders and give back to the community. J AMES HI A GRAVES.

I ' m proud of our contributions and commitment to help others. Our goals are to continue contributing in every way we can to the com- munity ' and to our campus. Both have given so much to us, and we want to continue responding in kind. I have so many great memories over the past four years, the best of which are living in the house as a senior with my pledge class, initiation, swaps and parties, and the closeness that develops within the sororit} ' during the recruitment process.

It is also among the largest Sigma Chi chapters with 238 active members after a record setting pledge class of 92 on Bid Day. For many students on campus, the name Sigma Chi may be most strongly associated packed house parties and formals, or perhaps our annual Groundhog Day and Derby Days parties. While these events have provided many great memories over the years, those associated with Sigma Chi know the ETA Chapter is much more than fratty house parties and good times. Sigma Chi is known as a place of unique diversity, countless opportunities, endless friendships, and a dedication to community service. One unique aspect that Sigma Chi brings to the table is its involve- ment not only on-campus, but off-campus as well. This year, Sigma Chi was well-represented on-campus through active involvement in ASB, communit} ' service organizations, and various Christian organizations. Perhaps the largest contribution was the annual Derby Days, as $25,000 was raised towards Heifer International (a global feeding project). Love Packs, Feed the Hunger, and various other charities. Off-campus, Sigma Chi ' s serve the community through volunteering and fuUy fund- ing Manna Feeding Ministry through St. Peter ' s Church and raising over a hundred gift boxes for Operation Christmas Child. The ability of Sigma Chi ' s to serve the community on the reg, grow spiritually and academically on the reg, all while having good times on the reg is what makes this organization so special and reputable around the Ole Miss Campus. Sigma Chi strives to continue serving Ole Miss and Oxford, while providing a venue for growth and betterment for aU actives. We look forward to another great year, Ole Miss. LOGAN RUSH, Class of 2012 SIGMA CH s a freshman going through Recruit- ment, my strongest desire was to find a group of people who could provide a foundation for a positive experience here at the University. From the outside looking in, Phi Mu offered just that and so much more. I saw leaders who strove to make a positive impact on this campus through their involvement in campus organizations. I saw women who were passionate about contributing their time and money to their national philanthropy, Children ' s Miracle Network. I saw women who, as cliche as it might sound, were a sisterhood. Phi Mu ex- ceeded my expectations of what a sorority is, becoming a home where I have friends who love and suppo rt me for whom I am. This has truly been a life changing experience. These are the women who will stand beside me on my wedding day. They will provide the support I need as I continue life ' s journey, one I cannot imagine without them. As I look to the fumre, I would like to see Phi Mu continue bet- tering themselves, the Ole Miss campus and the Oxford communit} ' by maintaining our campus involvement, striving for academic excellence, and " practicing day by day, love, honor, truth, thus keeping true to the meaning, spirit and reality of Phi Mu. PHI MU ■ 21- t is hard to believe that my senior year is already upon me, much less over halfway complete. I was always warned by older class men and friends of how fast these four (give or take some) years would fly by, but I never thought they would go as fast as they seem to have gone. As a freshman, my expectadons of a sorority were minimal. Coming from a close-knit high school class, I didn ' t know if it would be possible to make as good of friends as I had back home. After pledging Kappa Delta, I quickly learned that it was not only possible, but it was also incredibly easy. I have met some of the most diverse girls, who are so talented and blessed in so many different ways. Whether I need — the straight-A girl to help me smdy for a big test, the sports-loving girl to accompany me to the basketball game, the beloved Bible girl to go to church with on Sunday mornings, the cowboy boots girl to go to Eric Church concerts with, the bar-hopping girl to get Li- brary c ards with, or the GAMEDAY-Grove girl who will be by my side at every Ole Miss football game and Grove fesdvit} ' — I have found one of every kind in KD. In addidon to my sorority sisters, I am privileged to call these girls my best friends. The friendships I have made in Kappa Delta do not solely exist when life is easy and fun though, or when everything is going the way I want it to. The tough times in life are the times when friends are most im- portant — the times when my friends in KD provide a shoulder to cry on, an encouraging Bible verse, or maybe even just a listening ear. In addition to the friendships. Kappa Delta has provided me with end- less communit) ' service opportunities such as hands-on activities with the Girl Scouts of America and the Leap Frog organization. Our most recent philanthropic event to take on is the Susie Haskins Bash, which raises money to put into the Susan Haskins Scholarship fund in the Hospitality Management department. This scholarship was created in remembrance of our dearest sorority sister and my pledge sister, Susan Christena Haskins, who passed away in August 2009, in a car accident. Our chapter pulled together during this tragic time of loss and grew stronger. We learned to never take anyone or anything for granted, because life is too short. We learned the value of life, learned how important it is to love one another at all times, and adopted the mind set i of " Uve, laugh, love! " Kappa Delta helps tremendously by keeping all the members up to date on what campus organizations are available to join as well as what honors, awards, and contests are available to students. I, along with numerous fellow friends in the chapter, am fortunate to have been a part of different organizations such as Student Alumni Council, Student Programming Board, Lambda Sigma Honor Society, and Campus Cru- sade, which I may have missed out on if not for older, wiser friends in KD advising me. Other clubs and awards that many of the girls in our chapter participate in or receive are Associated Student Body, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Gamma Beta Phi, Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society, Reformed University Fellowship, Who ' s Who among American Colleges and Universities, Class Favorites, and Ole Miss Idol. Though it has only been four years that I ' ve spent here, it seems like I have made a lifetime of memories with my friends in KD. Each formal and swap brought on new dates, new pictures, new dresses, and new I memories for each of us. There are no words to describe the laughter and entertainment of each KD Crawfish experience! The yearly seven months of practice that go into the one week of the infamous Ole Miss Greek Rush were often dreaded but so rewarding in the end. Derby Days, Shamrock, Charity Bowl, Double Decker weekend, Woodstock, Hayseed, Old South, and Ivy League are just a few of the spring memo- ries that will last forever! From the past days of Pledge Retreat, Big Sis Lil Sis, and my KD Initiation, to the present days of Wine n ' Cheese, Candlelights, and Pass the Gavel, it has all gone so fast but has been the experience of a lifetime, and one that I never dreamed of! LESLIE HARRISON KAPPA DELTA t goes without saying that Greek life comprises a large percent of the student body at Ole Miss. However, many students might not realize the positive impact that can be made on a person through participation in a fraternity or sorority. Many people only see the social aspect of it, and I would be first to admit that I love getting to wear Greek t-shirts and going date parties and swaps, but there is so much more to being in a sorority or fraternity. I would Uke to share my experience with being a part of the sisterhood of Tri Delta. I grew up with four brothers and I had no idea what life would be like living with sisters. Pledging a sororit) ' has been one of the most amaz- ing experiences of my life and I am proud to be part of an organization that gives so much back to the community. Along with the hundreds of other girls who went through recruitment, 1 was incredibly nervous. We were not sure what to expect or what it really meant to be a member of a sisterhood. 1 will never forget how Tri Delta ' s first night of recruitment touched my heart. The first night consisted of a video containing pictures of the girls, but more impor- tantly it showed the potential new members what they raise money for. Seeing Tri Delta ' s relationship with St. Jude Children ' s Hospital made me excited to see the impact my soon to be sisters have in our com- munity. Tri delta has been part of a program that was planning to raise 10 million dollars over the course of the next ten years. I am pleased to say that my sisters in all different states completed this goal of 10 mil- lion dollars in only four short years. What an amazing goal to accom- plish for children with terminal illnesses. I am proud to know we helped save lives. I ' ll be the first to admit that when I pledged Tri Delta 1 was thrilled, but I was concerned about how 1 was going to remember the names of over 300 girls! I can honestiy say I now know them aU by name and have formed a true relationship with many of them. 1 have been for- tunate to help children from all over, and in the process I got to meet hundreds of girls who love Tri Delta also. CALLIE RUSH DE A DELTA DELTA ecoming a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. has definitely been one of the highlights of my coUege career. I have had so many great experiences at Ole Miss, and joining this organization is at the top of the list. I was introduced to Greek life during my freshman year at Ole Miss. I was impressed by the organizations that made up the National Pan-Hellenic Council because of the leadership they displayed in the African American community through service projects and also being involved in other groups outside of their Greek organizations. I did my research on all the organizations and Alpha Kappa Alpha was the one that caught my eye. The organization was founded upon principles of service, sisterhood, and scholarship as it strived to nurture strong, intelligent, college women who would make a difference in the com- munity. As a smdent who is heavily involved in extracurricular activities on campus, I knew that becoming a member of a sorority was a big commitment to make. But I also knew that I was meant to be a part of Alpha Kappa Alpha, not only because of what the organization could do for me, but what I could bring to it as well. I am a first generation member of a Greek organization, and I have no doubt that I made the right decision when choosing Alpha Kappa Alpha. As a spring 2010 initiate of the Theta Psi chapter on the campus of the University of Mississippi, I have been blessed with so many op- portunities. While serving as chapter president the fall semester of my senior year, I was able to improve my leadership skiDs as well as learn a lot about myself personally. I have been afforded the great opportunity of participating in service in the Oxford-Lafayette communit} ' as well as other areas. Our chapter has worked with many groups including the Boys and Girls Club, the American Heart Association, Oxford Elemen- tary School, the Family Crisis Center, and retirement homes in the Ox- ford area. We have also been fortunate enough to plan our first annual P.R.I.N.C.E.S.S Summit Girl Empowerment Expo, which wiU serve as our signature program for the chapter. This year, members of Theta Psi have been selected for Who ' s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges, and are very active in Ole Miss Athletics, the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, the Columns Society, and other groups on campus. Alpha Kappa Alpha has also afforded me the chance to foster relation- ships with people from aU walks of life, including other members of thi organization across the country. I am most grateful for my sisters who were initiated into the Theta Psi chapter with me in 2010. I admire all of them because, although we have different backgrounds and goals foi our personal lives, we all have something in common. That is, we love Alpha Kappa Alpha and all that she represents. I am privileged to have these women in my life. As I complete my tenure at the University of Mississippi, joining Alphal Kappa Alpha will be an experience that 1 will reflect on later in life as one of the best things 1 ever did while in coUege. My duties as a womal of Alpha Kappa Alpha do not end after graduation. Being a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha is a lifelong commitment, and I am dedicated to upholding the ideal upon which she ftrmly stands: " service to all mankind " . GLORIA HOWELL.

Against all odds, each of us opened a different color bid card and ran to our respective new houses. For a moment, I was alone and — needless to say — terrified. As I topped the hill on Rebel Drive, I was greeted (well, swarmed) by enormous smiles and a million ' welcome home ' hugs in a sea of red and white. I immediately knew that I made the right decision choosing AOII, and I have been immersed in roses, pearls, and panda bears ever since! My favorite characteristic of AOII is our diversity. I have sisters from every corner of the nation — from as far as away as Alaska and as close as right here in Oxford. Not only are we AOIIs, we have girls who rep- resent the Ole Miss golf team, honors college. Croft, Trent Lott Leader- ship, Luckyday, Diamond Girls, and intramural sports, and we are even luckv enough to have a sister represent Ole Miss as our 2010 Home- coming Queen. It is amazing how rwo-hundred-and-something girls from all walks of life can come together to form such a cohesive bond. We live, work, play, laugh, cry, and depend on each other every single day. These girls are not only my sisters but my best friends, roommates, and fumre bridesmaids. We love to participate in our chapter ' s philanthropy, supporting the research of juvenile arthritis. In the fall, we host a kickbaU game and carnival where all proceeds go to " Strike Out Arthritis. " In the spring, we participate in a national AOII day of service, and this year, we will be hosting our first annual AOII Goes Blue for Arthritis 5k Walk Run. We proudly raise tens of thousands of dollars each year for the Arthri- tis Foundation. Apart from our own philanthropy, some of my best memories come from AOII ' s involvement with other Greek organiza- tions ' own philanthropies. I think my sisters would agree that we have the most fun together at Theta Encore and Sigma Chi Derby Days. And while they are ' competitions, ' it is great to know that the funds we raise are going to fantastic, worthy causes. Not to mention, we have a great time performing! As we come to the end of another school year, my ultimate goal for AOII is to continue to expand our chapter, grow in our sisterhood, and I exceed the expectations set before us. SHELBY ANN PORTWOOD ALPHA OMICRON PI -229- oining Alpha Tau Omega is one of the best choices that I ' ve ever made in my life. The strong christian prin- ciples and supportive leaders were some of the major reasons that lead me to join ATQ. On campus we are known for being the leadership de- velopment fraternit} ' and I think that it holds true through the positions that members of our fraternity hold. My experience with ATQ since I have joined has been a very positive one. What you get out of a frater- nity, and your overall experience, has everything to do with how much you put into it and I feel our members have gotten so much out of the fraternity during their time here. Some of the greatest memories that I ' ll always have are any of the time spent with my fraternity brothers, whether it be during philanthropies, parties or the random road trips that were poorly planned. GRAHAM INMAN, ALPHA TAU OMEGA President ALPHA TAU OMEGA I -251- I he Alpha Psi chapter of Delta Gamma and its members continue to achieve excellence within our Fraternity, on the Ole Nliss campus, and in the Oxford community. This year we held our annual Milk and Cookies fundraiser which supports our philanthropy, Service for Sight. Anchor Games were held during the spring semester to further our goals of raising money to aid the visually impaired. Our chapter continues to " Do Good " by walking a visually impaired student to each of her classes every day. Our founders ' " mu- mal club of helpfulness " truly does live-on at Alpha Psi! The ladies of Delta Gamma strive to reach their full potential by getting involved on campus. Our very own member, Virginia Burke, a senior from Charleston, MO, was elected President of the Ole Miss Associated | Student Body. Chapter members are visible in countiess organizations and honor societies on campus as well as serve in numerous leadership positions. As a special treat to our campus, we hosted the Lauren Parsekian and Molly Stroud, who are the co-founders of the Kind Campaign. Their award winning documentary was shown during the fall semester. The Kind Campaign was created to bring awareness and healing to the pres- ence and effects of girl-on-girl crime. The Kind Campaign event was a huge success not only within Delta Gamma but was also supported by many other sororities and ladies of the Ole Miss Student body. Delta Gamma is a group of young women who work hard not only to better themselves but also our campus and our community. I» t f MA i t DELTA GAMMA «r- - T • ' m IP ii ' vife: L ft: ■ ' - S| % I joined KA because I found a group of people on campus whose morals and ideals aligned with mine. Additdonally my personal goals and aspiradons for my college career were attainable when I surrounded myself with such fine gendeman as the members of the Kappa Alpha Order. On campus we have members of our fraternity that are leaders on the ASB, Alumni Council, RUF, Campus Crusade, Lott Insdtute, Lucky Day Scholars, Inter-Fraternity Council, among many others. Off campus we are involved with many community service projects, most notably the Muscular Dystrophy Associadon in which we raised over 180,000 for their cause through our annual KA Fight Night event. My time in the Kappa Alpha Order has been an experience of a life- dme. I have four years of memories and lifelong friends. WILSON BRAND. Class of 2011 KAPPA ALPHA ORDER appa Alpha Theta, to me, encompasses many things. It is more than the t-shirts, swaps, and parties. It is having sisters who love and support me through every kind of situation. It is the opportunity to be- come a better person than I am right now because we grow and learn from each other each day. To be a member of Kappa Alpha Theta at Ole Miss means much more than what we see in our four short years here. It is a lifetime of traditions and values, friendships and memories that I ' ll always cherish. It is a national sisterhood to caU home, no matter where I go or what I do. KARA STURM famous quote by Lucretius states, " We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embrac- ing one another. " I am proud to be a sister of the Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity which truly embodies this statement. If there is one thing life and my freshmen year of college has taught me it is that change is inevitable. How great it is to know that I can always find solace with my sisters. Although the cynics wiU dismiss it as buying friends I can firmly say if that ' s the case I truly haven ' t paid enough. From the candlelight ceremonies to initiation it is powerful to know that the rituals I partake in with the Epsilon Zeta chapter bind me not only with my sisters at Ole Miss, but with women throughout the country. For the rest of my life every time I walk down or drive by number 3 Rebel Drive a thought wiU cross my mind, I ' m home. BRACEY HARRIS KAPPA ALPHA THETA -25 2- n February 26, 1975 four pioneering gendemen brought the Eta Beta Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. to the University of Mississippi. Those four men are the beloved charter members: J. Brown, E. Brown, M. Watts, and ). Everson. They sought to create an organizadon that viewed itself as " a part of the general community rather than apart from the general community. " They wanted to create a legacy of " greater men " by exemplifying the high ideals of Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service. Thirty-six years later that legacy has been forwarded by a legion of men dedicated to serving humanity. The Eta Beta Chapter has, at the core of its programs, a focus on edu- cation, service, and appreciation. Yearly, we host events like " Phi Beta Sigma Honors, " " Tribute to a Black Woman, " and Project D.O.V.E. to show appreciation to a campus communit) ' to which we feel strongly connected. My goal, as an individual and as a member of the frater- nity at large, is to continue to stand for what our charter members and founders stood for: " Culmre for Service, Service for humanity. " We work diligently to create memories and foster relationships that frame us as an organization for the people. he members of the Mississippi Alpha chapter of Phi Kappa Psi had another very eventful year. Heavily involved in campus activities and philanthropies, they lent a brotherly hand in the " Dash for Hash " , benefitting Ole Miss baseball player Taylor Hashman after his grievous injuries he suffered this year. The organization also held its annual Chucky MuUins Banquet honoring the traditions and values Mullins held dear, along with other numerous philanthropies. Following yet an- other very successful fall rush, the Phi Psi ' s participated in the school ' s annual homecoming traditions along side the Ladies of Kappa Kappa Gamma and Phi Mu. Holding true to Ole Miss spirit, the fraternity held frequent fall par- ties, two headlining the Ying Yang Twins and Jason Michael Carroll. This year ' s fall formal was held at Morgan Freeman ' s Ground Zero in Clarksdale, MS, a magnificent experience for the men of Phi Kappa Psi. It was a year enjoyed by all the members of the fraternity and they look forward to another great year. PHI KAPPA PS -a - I hinking back to the fall of 2007 it ' s hard to remember exactly what it was that in- spired me to get involved in Greek life on campus. Whatever is was, uldmately it was a great decision because now as a senior I can ' t imagine my tenure at Ole Miss with- out Pi Beta Phi. What originally attracted me to get involved and uldmately kept me involved in Pi Beta Phi were the girls that filled the chapter. I can distincdy remember the girls who picked me up for each round of formal recruitment. One pardcular girl stands out in my mind because of how much she reminded me of my actual older sister. We shared many of the same values, aspiradons, sense of humor and personality traits. At first I was hesitant to make a decision based off of one girl, but this hesitation subsided when I realized that she was just one of many girls in the chapter with these traits. Since joining in the fall of 2007, 1 have been given the opportunity to take part in acdvides and events that have helped shape the person I am today. If 1 were able to describe this amazing group of girls in a phrase I would say each girl is, true to herself Pi Beta Phi is strongly founded upon servant leadership and philanthropic service. I have been given the opportunity to take part in coundess numbers of philanthropy events sponsored by our members, each one teaching me sometliing meaningful. From read- ing to children at local elementary schools, working Halloween carnivals, bringing the Cat in the Hat to life for children or most notably rais- ing record breaking amounts of money for Relay for Life; who we are speaks through our acdons. Our chapter looks to condnue to positively affect the campus through our service events while also demonstrating who we are as individuals and a collective group. With this being said, if you happened to find yourself on campus during the 2010 Homecom- ing elections you may have noticed a large group of girls with a dancing banana; I am proud to say that these phenomenal girls are my sisters. This is just a glimpse into the amazing, talented, and diverse group of girls that make our chapter what it is. Thank you girls for an unforget- table four years and memories that will last a lifetime. SARAH BRANSFORD PI BETA PH -24i eing a brother of Beta Theta Pi has been an amazing expe- rience. Beta has given me the opportunity to grow as an in- dividual and has prepared me to become a leader after col- lege. At Beta, we seek actives not members and strive for perfection in and out of the classroom. I know that Beta is the strongest brotherhood at Ole Miss and I truly feel that I could not have made a better choice in fraternities.

Mem- bers of Kappa Kappa Gamma have always been very involved earning the reputation of leaders who make a difference on campus and in the communit} ' . Ole Miss Kappas have been elected to the HaU of Fame, student body government. Miss Ole Miss, Campus Favorite, Most Beautiful, and Homecoming Queen. Kappas have been chosen as fraternity sweethearts, Derby Day Queen, cheerleaders, Rebelettes, and smdent athletes. In 2010, our chapter was very proud to win 1 st place in Derby Days Dance. Kappas, following a strong tradition of excellence, have been listed among the top scholars on campus as Phi Beta Kappas, Taylor Medal- ists, and Carrier Scholars. Our philanthropy focus truly sets the Delta Rho chapter apart. Kappas raise money for Reading is Fundamental by hosting our annual BBQ for Books and Kappa Karnival. Our members team with the local schools working with children to promote literacy. Globally, Kappa reaches out to Africa by sending actives each summer with books and bears and to work on various special projects. Ole Miss Kappas has been recognized with numerous awards for their philan- thropic work from Ole Miss Greek Life and our National organization. Kappa Kappa Gamma at its core is friendship, leadership and scholar- ship; an opportunity and experience for a lifetime. KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA -24 appa Alpha Psi is an orga- nization that is based on achievement and I always want to accomplish that in everything I do. Therefore I join this fraternity to better myself as a person and achieve in more than just school and track. This fraternity is involved in tons of activities and community service projects on and off campus. To name a few; we are involve in health awareness fitness week, raising money for St. Jude hospital and helping the elementary kids at after school programs. Kappa Alpha Psi is an around organization and since I have became a member its been great. We are truly a brotherhood and have a bond like no other fraternity. My personal experience has been awesome and I can ' t complain at all. This organization is already on top among the fraternities I know about, but I want my fraternity to be recognized on all levels; like great networking possibilities, outstanding community service projects that earns millions of dollars and make the organization known to those that have no idea about the greatness in the organization. One of my most memorable moments of the organization was the night my Line brothers and I probated at the Lyric in front of our fellow classmates. It was a great hearing and seeing the support of my friends, family, and classmates. Another great memory is when we shut the club down on homecoming literally We had a good time sharing that with other chapters of Kappa Alpha Psi and everyone in Oxford that night. It was a successful night for our chapter here at Ole Miss.

When I first met the guys of Delta Psi I felt a strong sense of brotherhood and I knew that was the place I wanted to be. Not only was I impressed with the close knit of the members but there was also an intellecmal aspect of the frater- nit} ' that challenged everyday. Delta Psi offered me a great balance in my college career and is a truly unique organization. I have had some many great experiences with Delta Psi from the social aspect to my academic endeavors. It exposed me to a world that I did not even know existed at Ole Miss. The greatest experience hands down for me are the friendships that I have gained. I can attribute this to the qualit} ' of the guys because there is a bond much deeper than just a person to socialize with. I can honesdy say that I have found the person that I want to stand by me at mv wedding. I am looking forward to continuing developing friendships that I have already made and the ones that I will make in the future.

Everett, a member of the University of Mississippi Class of 1932, so eloquently said, " There is a valid distincdon 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 spirimal. 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. " The University has been a special place to so many people and certainly has been for me. I have been privileged to pardcipate in a wide variet} ' of opportunides our campus offers and am so thankful for the experiences I have gained as a student at the University of Mississippi. While graduation brings about mixed emotions, some of joy and others of sadness, I know Ole Miss will always be a part of me. Ole Miss truly is a family. We hear this cliche statement often, but I believe it wholeheartedly. The warm people coupled with a breathtaking campus provide a coUege atmosphere that is paralleled by few. It is with great honor that I write this letter, and I hope to leave those who read this with a chaOenge: For those who are fortunate to have remaining time as a student, I strongly encourage you to take fuU advantage of what The Universit) ' offers. Get involved in some way. Having finished my time as a student, I can confidentiy say if you give time to serve The University and others, you will receive so much more in return. The education we receive at Ole Miss prepares us for the workforce and gives us the credentials to be successful in the future, while the intangible lessons learned from experiences outside the classroom will be with us for a lifetime. For those who are moving on toward the next stage in life, I charge you, just as I challenge myself, to keep Ole Miss close to your heart and as a daily part of your life.

That is one of the things I get to do and one of the things I love to do. I come from distant relatives who loved to entertain so I was always learning new things. Coming here, and this being one of the things I consider to be my major jobs, is so easy. I love it. I have often said that some of the most important relationships are made around a dinner table. We let this house be our home. I do not think of it as a pubUc building on campus. I think of it as our home. We do have a little space at the end of the hallway that I call " our suite, " where we have our bedroom and a little TV room and that ' s where we can retreat. If they ' re still cleaning up after an event, that ' s where you ' ll find us. The most defining moment for me was when my husband and I met. He was already focused on community, work and making the world a better place when I met him and that ' s the way he was and dU this day that ' s the way he is. The opportunities we have had throughout our life, we honesdy could have not thought through all of that, it has just kind of happened as we have gone through our life. We knew we were going go overseas at some point in time; at least, we felt Like that was going to happen. When it happened it was a big surprise because we had our two children, and we really thought it was going to be earlier in our married life. We just knew when it was right, that we were supposed to do that. We went with the mission board through our church. We were there for seven-and-a-half wonderful years. That ' s one of the greatest defining moments in our life too, because it gave us a world view and allowed us to see outside ourselves. To know his heart and to know what he is trying to do for our university and people not always understanding that, on a personal level, it hurts. But he is a lot stronger than I am about some of those things, so we ' re OK. I guess what I would love for students to know is that we are here because of them. We are here for the students. It ' s a wonderful place to be and it ' s a wonderful place to go to school, and we are just going to try and make it better everyday. story ALEX DEJOY photo ALEX EDWARDS .

" and we are continually informing them, " Yes, we are the real police. " I came to Ole Miss as a student. I came as a freshman in 1975. My parents really stressed education. I have a cousin who got in a little trouble as a juvenile and a child. One thing I was going to do is be a probation officer for juveniles, so I just leaned that way. The police academy was a really happy time because of all the endurance you had to go through there. There were tough moments from day to day but you just don ' t quit. I ' m not going to just give up on doing anything. I may not be the one who finishes first but I am going to finish regardless of what it is. One of the hardest things you hear is officers being away from home. Of course the physical training part is really rugged, but you just get through it. I have come through the ranks from patrol officer, and now I am the crime prevention coordinator. My goal is to keep the students and propert} ' here on campus as safe as possible by just educating people as best we can. Whatever we do here we try to make it a lifelong experience. The university is a unique place. We have the law enforcement duties, but then we have those other special things that we do for the student population. A normal police department wouldn ' t think about going and unlocking a car for free, and getting a call for giving someone a ride. You think in terms of every year you get a new batch of kids in. It ' s always changing. No day is the same. Every day is something different. The students have been wonderful over the years. It ' s just meeting different folks and doing different things everyday. story GRANTHAM ROBERTSON photo ALEX EDWARDS 4 N 1. « ■V ■% - i .. ' .

I have been here since 1993. I have a family of two daughters, one is 14 years old and one is 19 years old, she is a sophomore in chemical engineering here, and my wife teaches in the modern language department. Is it a sin when we set up a structural situation where people are not allowed to live as long as others because of impediments in society? I have come to believe that the answer to that is yes. If I impede your development because it favors my wealth, that is a sinful condition. I saw a life changing moment and that awakened me. A 25-year-old woman died of tetanus. She stepped on a nail and couldn ' t take anything to help stop the reaction. They had to drive 2-3 hours to the hospital and by the time they had arrived she had passed. Just on the other side of the Rio Grande about 90 miles away they was a great hospital but the boundary between the 2 nations impeded that from happening. It struck me as a strong moral issue and it was a theological situ ation. To me, sin was a personal act from one person to another, so the nature of the question changed. I was able to look beyond an individuals understanding to a cooperate understanding of sin. I became very much involved in Latin American history at that point and the role of power. story JENNIFER PETERSON photo ALEX EDWARDS ii Senior managerial finance major Preston Dowell gives Beth McLemore a taste of Kappa Alpha ' s chili at the Chili Bowl event which raised money for the homeless in Oxford. photo ADDISON DENT 318 Connie RIainc Dcfazio Tammy Renee Delcourt William Matthew Deloach Shauniece Contrell Deloney Manasi Desai Sarah Elizabeth Detring Morgan Deweese G.

I wanted to make films. I wanted to be in films, write them, direct them. Probably the biggest turning point in my life was in 1984. My brother John bought a 8mm film camera and a projector. He brought it home, he ordered some film from Kodak and we made a short movie. It was the biggest thrill of my life. It ' s been that kind of experience that I have worked to recapture and re-experience ever since. When I got to L.A. I was waiting tables, bussing tables, cleaning restaurants and that kind of stuff. Just doing whatever I could to make money to pay my bills. Then I met two ladies who were casting agents and they put me to work in their office. One thing led to another and I was eyeball deep in Hollywood production. After 5 years we hit our saturation level of being in that big cit ' and being in and around that industry. We said " Let ' s get back to Mississippi. " We have gotten our feet wet, we have seen a lot of production, we have taken a part in a lot of production, we can do this on a smaller scale back home, which was my ultimate goal. I had been doing a sort of a comedy bit routine singing along side on of my good friends named Travis Lamb, who ' s an Ole Miss graduate. We would sing songs about Ole Nliss. We would dress up in red and blue suits and play at Thacker Mountain and people ' s tents in the Grove, but we didn ' t think a whole lot about it. We got contacted by a show called Can you Duet. They literally told us in the audition, we want to put you on this show, but you need to lose the suits, lose the sunshades, take this seriously and you wiU have a chance. So we did that; we didn ' t come back in our suits, we came back as regular guys. In retrospect, especially once we got kicked off the show, we might as well have gotten kicked off in character as opposed to turning into just average-looking guys and then get kicked off I would kind of like to get back off on my own and see if I couldn ' t get into some bigger independent film projects. WhUe I love working here and I love Ole Miss and will always want to do things that contribute to Ole Miss and the success of Ole Miss, I don ' t know, I just really wanna dance. story SYDNEY RAGON photo ALEX EDWARDS V Alexander Folsom David Christopher Fontenot Ruth Michelle Force Apral Foreman Ashley Lynne Forester Jennifer Lee Foshee Robelene Raye Foster Chasity Nicole F ' oster-Jernigan Clay Fowler Danny Ray Francis Nicholas Warren F ' ranklin Brent Alexander French Sharon Melody Frierson Michiyo Fujimoto Blair FuUilove Margaret Montee Gaddy Echarial Tanesha Gaines Kelsey Gallagher Joyneka Cierra Gandy Meaghan Michelle Gandy Chadrick Charles Gardner Mike Garmon Jennifer Joan Hughes Ciarrett Matthew Stephen Garrett Cedric Garron Danielle Cooperlee Gartman Gina Gassaway Erruly Katherine Gasson Davis Gates Kirsten Ketteece Gatson EUa Zita Cientry Adam James Gibson )aperry Ciilbert Lateffa Renaa Gilbert Rannie Gillentine Lacey Cjilmore Jamar Farentino Gilson Tina Ginn Ashley Glover Tiffany Nicole Cilover Younna Gooden Kishan Gopal Talisha Gordon Tranquility Gordon Tucker Gore William Brett Gore Jeremiah Goree Jessica Gradolf Ashley Elizabeth Graham Leah Ritter Graham Likeeva Michelle Grainger Jameshia Dachelle Graves Hannah Brooke Gray Asya Green Jajuanna Remisha Greer Chelsea Gregory Andrea Lashanna Griffin Lakesha Griffin Erin Renee Grimm Keith Grubbs Lee Morgan Gunn Lisa Anne Gustafson Chelsea Shenae Guyton 322 l .

I can still remember being so amazed at the leaves on the trees. Now, I wasn ' t an idiot. I knew that trees had leaves, but I what I wasn ' t aware of as that everyone didn ' t see these trees the way I did. I was seeing this green blur, unless I got them right on my nose or put glasses on and it was just cool. And this has kind of stuck with me as well as status quo in that what you are accustomed to can be so out of the norm for other people but if you don ' t know its out of the norm, then you think trees are big fuzzy green things. I v as in a wreck when I was about 18 with my best friend that we shouldn ' t have walked away from. We managed to turn that Volk- swagon over all by ourselves. We didn ' t wear seat belts in 1971. As a matter of fact, if I had been wearing a seatbelt, I think the outcome would have been different because it was a bug and the roof had been completely crushed in, so if I would have been strapped in, it would have crushed me as well. I realized that ' s not the way I want to go— in a wreck. I remember colored-only water fountains. I remember segregated South. I remember asking my mother when I was in elemen- tary school, " Why are people burning down churches? " That didn ' t make any sense to me. I remember the death of my grandmother in fourth grade just blew my socks off. Very unexpected. And we all have the first wake up call on the reaUdes of life and death. I would want to meet my grandmother as an adult. I have been a bartender, a bouncer, I have delivered Chinese food. I would do odd jobs. Then, I got caught up in a poUdcal batde over my job at the library and they did away with my position thinkin g they could get rid of me that way. The only job they offered me was maintenance man, that ' s what they called it. I preferred maintenance person. I was never able to get a woman working sign for when I had to work in the men ' s bathroom. They would come in and just do their stuff with me in there working. I got an Associate ' s Degree from Meridian Community College and I was a participant in a scholars bowl. My team placed second up here which gave me a $250 scholarship which was the best deal I had going. That ' s how I ended up here. Fifteen years from now, you are probably not going to remember your GPA or what you made in your English class or journalism class. I bet you will remember the day your child was born, the day you got married, the cool and even the not-so-cool stuff of Ufe that ' s out there waiting on you. That ' s the good stuff that ' s yet to come, but you ' ve been totally indoctrinated up to this point. Work hard and play hard, but get the order right. Try to be empathetic. Put yourself in some- one ' s else perspective. It will make you a better person, I think. A littie empathy goes a long way. I never remember being tired when I was 1 8 or 19. I could get up work all day and party all night, then get up and do it again. I love going home and putting my pajamas on now. I put my sweatpants on and I am a happy woman. The way I play the game, it ' s a good feeHng. I try to make it the least painful on all partici- pants. story ELLIE TURNER photo ALEX EDWARDS 4. _-- ' ' .

My family had a place on a lake in Wisconsin and we used to go up there for a good part of every summer, sometimes the whole summer when I was a boy and into my teens. My mother used to say, when I took up Irish literature 30 years ago and started to go to Ireland every summer, that I was doing exacdy what I used to do as a child. I have my life in Oxford and then a life in Ireland where we go for the summer. It is kind of like an escape. We have friends there, work there, a house there, a car there - we have a life there. I hadn ' t diought about it, but my mom was right. When I was an undergraduate (at the Univer- sit} ' of Illinois), I had a friend that worked for the paper. The Daily lUini. We roomed together, or next to each other. We were both interested in reading literature and writing. He worked for the paper and he said to come down some night. I wasn ' t really working there, but he said, " WTiy don ' t you write a headline for the story? " So, I did. When it came out the next day and I saw it in print, it was a great moment. I became sort of addicted to having my words, even though it was only six words, in print. I still am interested in seeing my words in print. I do work here too, but there, I am not teaching for three months, so essentially that ' s where I do my work. After I left Columbia with my degree in jour- nalism, I went into the business. I worked for the Wall Street Journal for a year and then went to Newsday. I had to make a decision to give up literature and keep working as a journalist for the res t of my life or try to get my Ph.D and find a teaching job so I applied around to differ- ent schools. By some miracle I never under- stood, I got into Stanford. That was it. I quit the job, sold the house, sold one of the cars, sold the sailboat— had a very nice sailboat in Long Island—and moved into graduate student housing. That was a hard decision to make. 1 was married and had one child. We went from our own house, own garden and a block from Long Island sound and went into graduate student housing— a littie tiny apartment with no room for much of anything. We were there for four years. I didn ' t like high school when I was in it and I loved college when I was in it. I had a terrific undergraduate experience. AH I wanted to do was just get there and when I got there, I was delighted to be there. In a public institution, what we are told is you get a much wider range of students in terms of their abilities to do college level work and I don ' t think that ' s true. I think what you get is a wide range of students in terms of there prepa- ration and in terms of the amount of work they are willing to do. My experience is the students that excel are not necessarily anymore gifted than anybody else. It ' s just that they work. They do the work. If you tell them to read a four- hundred page novel, they read the novel. You tell them to write a paper, they stay up all night and they pour their heart and soul into it and they get good grades. I don ' t think it is a matter of inherent ability. Some people come here with less preparation for college than others and I think that is a serious problem, but most of these things can be ironed out on account of academic work ethic. In short, my experience is that students who work hard almost always suc- ceed. Not always, but almost always. I am suspicious and skeptical, I won ' t say against, to simplistic approaches to anything especially something as complicated as a hu- man life and even more human relations. I just think the tendency to reduce things to formulas, mottos, and powerpoint presentations is off the mark. I mean life isn ' t like that. You need to be open, especially at the age of college students, you need to be open to lots of different pos- sibiUries that you never considered— things that you may have rejected, things that your parents said were wrong, things that your parents said were right. I mean this is a chance to explore what you want to think and who you want to be and it ' s one of the great opportunities, I think, that you have as a student. story ELLIE TURNER photo ALEX EDWARDS , ' 1: ' .

People think the band is here just because Ole Miss is here and it ' s not. They have to eat, they have to have time to go to the restroom. We don ' t even get one minute of brealc at the game. Most of it ' s just not knowing and I am trying to educate people so they ' ll respect what these kids do. My mom tried to commit suicide when I was two. I have no memory of her. My father was a blue collar man under a lot of pressure in the fifties to raise a daughter and a son with no mother. He was pretty gruff and hard on me. I lived in fear and anxiety. I didn ' t have an example or an environment or a role model to live up to, I just didn ' t. I had no vision that you went to school to be a doctor or a lawyer or an accountant. I had no idea about that. I remember the day that my high school band director said, " What are you going to do next year? " I said, " I ' ll probably go out to Hinds Junior College and take some kind of auto-mechanics course. " I had no clue what I was going to do. He said, " No, you ' re not; you ' re going to go to Ole Miss and major in music. " Ole Miss might as well have been in Alaska. I didn ' t know what it was or where it was. The director said to my dad, " I can get you financial aid if you make less than $10,000 a year. " I remember this vividly. My dad said, " Well, I make less than 5. " The band director from Ole Miss said, " Well, how do you make it? " Dad said we managed. Well, we didn ' t manage. I have tried to turn around and use that to make sure when I approach a child or am teaching somebody I do it in a totaUy different context, so that when they leave here my students will say, " I am so glad I had him as a teacher. " I have two powerful missions to the band, and that ' s to bring positive recognition to what students do here and before they got here to serve the University. The other one is to endow to $2 million. I haven ' t done everything I would like to do but I can at least say I ' ve made one hell of a shot at it. story NATALIE WOOD photo ALEX EDWARDS r ' J- Morgan Keleigh Martin Emelia Susie Mata Kaley Alicia Mata Steplianie Lynn Mathis Zachary Howard Matkins Christopher Allan Mattox Lane EHzabeth Maxcy Kelsey Maynord Cindy Mays Ray Mays Tilda Mays Kristin Mc Kay Jackie Mc Kinney Austin Mcafee Kanesha McaUister Maude Kathryn Mcarver Brent Mccaleb James Glenn Mcdaniel Linita Brooke Mcewen Brittany Mane Mcgowan Tawanda Lanette Mcgowen Samuel Mckay Claire Mckee James Andrew Mckenzie Tiffany Quinette Mckinney Mitchell James Mclain Lauren Mclean Casey Lynne Mcmanus Kaitlinjean Mcmanus Barbara Mcmillin Lauren Mcmillin Jajuan LaveU McneU Victoria Lynn Meadows Ashleigh Means Alisa Melton Faith Melville Cody AUen Melvin Sarah Marie Memar Sandra Merriweather Walker Messer Johnny Franklin MUes French Edward Miller Jessica Miller Sabrina Lelynn Miller Chelsea Denise Mills Cinclair Milton Jarijion Minnett Erin Michelle M itzenberg James Lucas Moak Kerramesha Montgomery Maggie Kutak Montgomery Jamie Lee Moore Karsunn Ezekiel Moore Kimberly Moore Lee Ellis Moore Meredith Moore Natalie Moore Tiffon Moore Louis Hamilton Morehouse Gray Morrison Brady Hall Mosher Vincent Montrell Moss Annie J.

MARK COORDINATOR OF LIBRARY INSTRUCTION ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR Let ' s say your class needs help, or anybody ' s class needs help with finding resources, they bring them into the library and I, among other librarians, we show them for this topic or this paper the stuff ' ou would find. I lived in New Orleans for five ears. I moved there prett} ' much right after graduation. I loved it but I was so poor. First I tried to get my MFA in creadve writing, cause I was supposed to be a writer. 1 turned in an application to one place, UNLA, and after I didn ' t get accepted the first time, I said oh, weU. I decided I would become a librarian after being in a bookstore for 5 years. I went back up north to get a degree because I was still very prejudiced against the South. New Orleans is not very much like other southern cities, at least not to Yankees, so I thought you couldn ' t get a good education in the south. There was so much mythology for Northerners about Mississippi. Scary Boss Hog kind of guys. When I went on a tour and they were so open about the difficulties in the past and so open about the race issue, it formed the heart of the story about Ole Miss. I felt reassured. I felt, this is a place where I would like to be. What is this fight about Colonel Reb and Ole Miss? Ole Miss means a plantation owner ' s wife, that ' s really humiliating to a lot of people. I think people should look back into their backgrounds, a lot of poor whites even were humiliated and have been humiliated in the past by upper class people. It ' s a really terrible trick we play on ourselves, where we try and find somebody below us to humiliate. I think I might do it in some ways and that ' s something always to watch for. I Uke the students here because I think they realize there ' s got to be a balance between what you want to do with your life and how you ' re going to make it with money. I don ' t take anybody to be a snob here and I think the students don ' t act like snobs around me, maybe they do in parties at sorority houses, but 1 love the students here. They seem Uke they come from a background where they are not assuming that they get what they want to out of life. They have hope; obviously everybody has their dreams. story RACHEL HARPER photo ALEX EDWARDS -i - Charlie Medlin Porch Meghan Porter Thomas Stephen Powell Allie Prater Bethany Lauren Pratt Savannah Bowen Pratt Christopher Presley Steven Joseph Price Susan Marie Price Sidney Roderickus Pride Tiffany Margaret Pritchard Derrick Lavarus PuUins Olivia Pur ' is Kyle Matthew Putman James Ke in Pyatt Brittany Jane Quigley David Stephen Quigley Brittany Raffel Melissa Lorraine Ragin Mary Catherine Ragland Courtney Nicole Randall Kevin Christian Randolph Catherine Pepper Raper Lori Ratcliff Kristen Ray Sky Ray Taffie D.

I was actually born in Houston, Mississippi, because my mother had come back for a funeral. Her brother was killed in a car wreck. I have always considered myself my father ' s only son. Since Pam would always be in the kitchen cooking with Mom, I didn ' t learn to cook very well. I always helped dad work in the garage and work on houses. I was married for 1 4 years. My husband worked construction. He was a pipe fitter pipe welder and then he was a crane operator. Once he became a crane operator, there were a lot of jobs that were caUed shut downs, for 6 or 8 weeks at a time we would live in a different state. All four of my children were born in different parts of the United States. I currently work in the School of Education in the Department of Leadership and Counselor Education. I am the senior staff assistant but acmally the only secretary in the department, so I handle all of the daily duties that have to do with that department. The most important to my heart are my family - my immediate family - which is my mother and my father and my sister, and then of course my children. I really enjoy my job. I feel like I am on Cloud 9 right now. I think the biggest advantage of being in so many different states, and raising my children in so many different places, and finally coming back to Bruce, Mississippi, where my roots originated from, is that you reaUze that people everywhere are honestiy the same. Now that we are settied here in Bruce it feels Uke home, and it feels like I have been out and worldly enough to be able to relate to any people that I meet. That ' s what makes Ole Miss so interesting too. There are so many different nationalities and personalities of people that come through and being blessed with the ability of meeting them and living around them is a great experience. story CHLOE BAGLEY photo ALEX EDWARDS 5-iV.-.

I grew up in a small town in luka and there were no scientists there. You just thought about doctors being in health and medicine a nd they worked with technology, and that was all very cool. But I didn ' t realize you could just be a scientist and make a living out of it. That changed when I got to coUege. I still give " chalk talks. " A lot of colleagues use nice PowerPoint slides and things Uke that, but (using a chalkboard) is almost like revealing an answer on Wheel of Fortune. The letters come up and you ' re saying, " What is it? What am I doing here? Can you foUow? " Then sud- denly they get it, and they get the right answer, and they realize you are trying to solve puzzles but they are puzzles that evolve the real world and reality. Which came first the chicken or the egg? The egg by hundreds of millions of years, those kinds of questions aren ' t even questions any more. It ' s not even a paradox. What scientists are now looking at, we are looking forward and how do we use the information that we have. I love what I do. I love my job but then also like to go to the football games and tailgate in the Grove just like everybody else. You always try to balance those two. I wish I could tell you we ' re going to do smff that is going to change the world, and I don ' t know that any scientist ever thinks that while doing it. Who knows? Twenty years from now, some- thing that we did, someone may look back and say, " Oh, wow, that really shines things. " Most guys I know are not doing this because we are making lots of and lots of money. We are doing it because we are deeply curious about the way the world works and we want to more about it. story EMILY BULLOCK photo ALEX EDWARDS ifiii. li Im. li Christina Ann Tunne - Porscha Tunstall Jasmine Turner Leslie Turner Lindsay Meredith Turner Paris Denise Turner Dustin Michael Turin Melanie Christina Tutor Jennifer Ann Urban Mary Malinda ' alentine Vera Van Der Vyver Chapman Allison ' an Pelt Allison Leigh Vance Whitney Vance Michael Lenard Venton II Kayla Corrigan Vescovo Lindsev Ann Vinson Kjisten Marie Vise Olivia Claire Waggoner Sophie Renee Waites William Austin Wallace Erica Tennille Walls Jess Waltman Jamarr Ventez Walton Nancy Quortilla Wammack Amber Ward Brittni Ward MoUye Elizabeth Ward Nathan Ward Stephanie Kay Ward Sunita Elisha Ward Kristie Warino Julie Cassandra Ann Warlick Natalie Knstine Warner lasmine Warren Cory Washington Deja Jawanda Washington Brandy Machelle Watson Katherine Grace Watson Haley Weathersby Rebecca Ashley Werner Brittany West Lanette Westbrook Laurie Kay Westbrook Jennifer Nicole Westerfield Sarah Kathleen Whadey Joy Manetta Wheeler Charity Hope Wheelington AUson Shea White Mary MccaU White Misty White Stephanie Nicole White Anna Whitiey Marie Wicks David Wilbanks Nita Carol Wilgus Stephen Cole Wilkerson Blake Williams Brandon Cody Williams Caroline Williams Connor Williams Diarria Kevin Williams Melissa Rena Williams BISII 352 HS ' Shakieta Williams Shannon Marie Williams Ursula Nicole Williams Ashley Williamson Rnttany Paige Willis Rachel EUzabeth Willis Elizabeth Wilson Emelia Pearl Wilson lake Wilson Tarkisha Wilson Gregory Lamar Windom Lacey Winstead Jimmy Roe Winter Emily Word Kentra Wright Stephen Mcnair Wright Rachel Yi Bobbie Jean Young Emilee Christine Young Telisa Renee Young Kjnj ' onna Youngblood Kate Zachow Xi Zhao 353 354 VALERIA ROSS ASSISTANT DEAN OF STUDENTS ' I was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, in April of 1964. I truly love what I do. I really do. I love working widi students. I love advocating for students. I am married to Charles Ross; he is a professor here on campus. I want to be remembered as a good mother, a good friend, a good spouse, a good daughter, and a good sister. Those things are probably the most important to me. Work is important but family is really important to me. My favorite relative would definitely be my big mama on my mother ' s side. Her name is Mary Williamson or Rose Mary WiUiamson. She passed away at the age 104. On the last day she couldn ' t talk and she was in the bed cause she couldn ' t walk, but she remembered us, she remembered birthdays. Big Mama could rub an ache, and she would say, " Out of your body. " She was the wisest person I have ever known. She was goodness in a body. My mother is just like her. She is just a big package of goodness. I don ' t know how it gets any better. I hope I have a litde bit of that as I get older. story JERRA SCOTT photo ALEX EDWARDS COVER DIIPLAY AND DIVIDER PAGE DliPLAY lEYT IN LT OKiANA IN VARYING VEIGHTi AND ilZEi CYAN C 100 M 0 Y 0 K 0 YELLOW C 0 M 0 Y 100 K 0 ORANGE C 0 M 65 Y 100 K 0 ALL OTHER DISPLAY, STATISTCAL, AND ROSTER TEXT IN GOTHAM IN VARYING WEIGHTS AND SIZES ALL BODY COPY AND OUTLINES IN GARAMOND IN VARYING WEIGHTS AND SIZES COLOPHO TURQUOISE C 100 M 0 Y 30 K 23 HISTORY The Ole Miss has been the official yearbook of the University of Mississippi since 1897.

My staff, without question, was extremely dedicated to their work, and seeing their talent and effort appear in the photos they produced was inspiring. I ' ve learned so much more about photography from my staff throughout this process. I knew that at any moment I could call on any of them for assign- ments. Their creativity, and abiUt} ' to produce amazing photography in some- times the most unlikely situations is one of the tilings that makes this book so special. Thank you, everyone. It ' s been an amazing experience and an honor to be your editor. NICK TOCE PHOTO EDITOR -Wai K? JASMINE " MICHEL HIUS MANAGING EDITOSW |. ii .1 This year has been a tough one. It began with my return from New York City and somewhere in the middle I discovered that I would have to take a year and a half of classes in one year, my senior year at that. As much stress as this caused, I ' m thankful that I had the opportunit} ' to work as features editor for The Ole Miss. I have been blessed to work with a great group of writers and a very talented editorial staff Alex McDaniel, Callie Blackwell, Nick Toce, Jasmine Phillips and my writers have been nothing short of incredible, and I diank them for all of their hard work. r iv I would also like to thank my boyfriend Spencer Posecai for being so supportive and encouraging, and my mentor Bob Guccione Jr. for helping me realize my talents and potential. My family and friends have been behind me the whole way, and I don ' t think that I could have done it with out them. I want to thank them for putting up with my most stressful moments and helping me realize that there is nothing that I can ' t do or overcome. ' A % ' S The time I have spent at Ole Miss has been so special to me, and I know I will cherish every memory from my first football game to the day I accept my diploma. Every time I look back on this yearbook, it will remind me of great friends, inspirational professors and unforgettable experiences at this university. Thank you for everything, Ole Miss.

CALLIE BLACKWELL DESIGN EDITOR SPECIAL THANKS Garreth Blackwell Mark Dolan Katie Williamson Paul Katool Chancellor and Mrs. Jones Archives and Special Collections 365 LETTER FROM THE EDITOR 11 il ALEX MCDANIEL h 366 hough I knew I would eventually have to t down and write mv final remarks once we jmpleted the book, I can honesdy say I ' m still Dt a big fan of these things. It seems every liter ' s letter in every yearbook in the history f the world says the same thing every year. lah, blah, blah, I ' m so tired ... blah, blah, blah, I had ich a great staff ... blah, blah, blah. Bye. " orgive the cynicism. ' s not that I ' m not exhausted. I ' m barely anging on, despite thrice-daily espresso binges, nd it ' s not that I didn ' t get the chance to work ith an incredible group of people; you ' ll hear Dout them soon. just think after a year of piecing together this oUective snapshot of our lives at this universit) ' , should probably come up with something etter than a few paragraphs lamenting about IV own experiences. " his book was not produced out of the interest f being controversial or combative, nor was it itended to gloss over the difficulties that have lagued this universit} ' with nebulous ideas of lange and progression. Ve. developed every page with the primar - ;oal of accurately telling our story within he framework of where we now stand as a iniversit} ' , not how far we ' ve come. This staff sought to reflect the culture of oday ' s Ole Miss, which ultimately revealed that ve are not defined by a mascot, a school song, )r any other representative symbol, no matter low much we argue about tradition. ' e are ultimately defined by what we do during he brief time we have at the Universit} of Mississippi. Xliether it is through academic ichievement, communit} ' service, campus nvolvement or social activity, we must face forward, sending a message to the rest of the A ' orld regarding who we are, what we do and why it makes a difterence. Onl} ' time will tell if even a fraction of our goal was achieved. I lost countiess nights of sleep fretting over the stories we didn ' t have the time or resources to tell, the fascinating people we didn ' t meet and the experiences we didn ' t get to document. However, there are few words to describe how proud I am of what this staff has produced through a hectic year of assignments, rewrites and deadlines. They were charged with a daunting mission to cover the aftermath of one of the most controversial years in the history of the universit ' and did so beautifully. To the writing, photography and design staff: I am eternally grateful for your efforts in producing tliis book. Thank you for your patience, your kindness anci your diligence in helping us transform ideas into tangible work. Jasmine, thank you for using your past experience to help me find my way this year. You have been a blast to work with and I ' ve loved getting to know you better. Elizabeth, your dedication and organization as features editor was invaluable. I ' m not sure anyone else could have handled the stress and endless complications, but everything turned out so well because of your persistence to get the story. Katie, thanks for coming in toward the end to help us pull off the impossible. You are one heck of a journalist; I can ' t wait to see where your future will carry you. Nick, I still can ' t believe I convinced you to work for me again after you did such an amazing job last year at The Daily Mississippian, but somehow I did, and I ' m gratefiil. Aside from ensuring this book was filled with beautiful photography, I thank you for your friendship, laughter and love which kept me going night after night, no matter what. Thank you for being one of my best friends in the world, kid. I hope we work together again someday. Callie, my eyes flood with tears as I write these last few words to you. Though you ' re sitting less than six feet away, putting the final beautiful touches on the book, the sting of saving goodbye seems much closer than it did last July when we started planning this thing. You are one of the most talented people I ' ve ever known. Without ' ou and your awe-inspiring abilin; there is no way any of our hair-brained ideas could have come to life. You were my rock, in every sense of the word, and helped me get through ever} trial and tribulation we faced. I can ' t imagine ha -ing done this without you, and I hope and pra)- 1 can work with you again someday, perhaps when we develop Women ' s Esquire} Darcy, thank you for helping us get through this year and for all ot your support. I hope we ' ve made you proud. Pat, as always, I don ' t have words for how much your constant advice and encouragement means to me. You ' ve been my " mom away from mom " for two years, and I ' m thankful for the opportunit} ' to have learned from you. Special thanks to the SMC professional staff, including Stephen Goforth, Arvinder Kang, Darrel Jordan, Dylan Parker and Melanie Wadkins - I ' m sorry if I drove you crazy as a two-year manager. I ' d also like to thank the Meek School faculty- and staff who supported me this year, including Dr. Samir Husni, Asst. Dean Charlie Mitchell and Dean Will Norton, who helped me balance my responsibilities. Zach, I ' m still not sure why you ' d want to marr} ' someone who has had to work almost even ' night since the day you asked her out, I ' m so lucky to have ' ou with me every step of the wa ' , even if our most romantic dates happened at Office Depot. I love you. To my family: Your endless love and support has not gone unnoticed, despite the number of unreturned phone calls you ' ve made this year when I was at work, or the countiess weekends I couldn ' t come home when I was too busy. Please know I kept you at the forefront of ever thing I did, whether it was remembering Dad ' s always-do-the-right-diing mentalit)-. Mom ' s all-you-can-do-is-all you-can-do support or Mar}f ' s that ' s-a-stupid-idea accountability ' (haha). Thank you for lo ang me enough to give me a chance, to give me a life. I will always be a direct product of the house that built me. When I walked into the Student Media Center three years ago, all I wanted was die chance to teU a few stories. Thank you, Ole Miss, for letting me be part of your stor) ' . I will never forget this place, or the memories made within this beautiful, vibrant communit} ' . Here ' s to the next 1 1 5 years.
