GLENN W HOPKINS Hierc have been vast improvements in the College of Liberal Arts, according to many faculty members and students at Ole Miss. Denis Goulet, the Elector Lab Coordinator for non-major labs, has been working in the Biology de- partment for 1 1 years now. His daily duties include setting up labs, ensuring the teaching assistants are timely and dealing with student issues. He says his favorite thing about this job is being able to interact with the students. " The biology department at Ole Miss has accom- plished a lot since I began at Ole Miss. We have doubled our faculty and had huge department expansion, " Goulei says. " When I was first here, there were i o of us and now there is tenure tract fac- ulty and instructor faculty. With the more faculties comes more grant money. We have had such great improvements. " He continues on the biolog) ' department ' s accom- plishments by mentioning its two Fulbright Scholars. Goulet hopes for specific improvements when it comes to nanning his labs including finding ways to improve the labs and updating to more cunent technologies. He also wishes to save on paper and waste and to have better training of TA ' s. Goulet says the awards his department has received in the last year are the Fulbright scholars, a number of Taylor Medal winners and many faculty-awarded grants for research. Kacie Cross, a sophomore fiom Yakima. Wash., is a psychology major with theatre and mass media and communication minors. Cross says psychology is a study of the brain and how individuals and groups interact and react to situations. It also focuses on behavioral disorders and problems. It entails taking a variety of courses that look into the different kinds of psychology such as learning, personality disorders, research and behavioral. Cross chose this major because it is something she is invested in. " I want to know what makes people do the things they do, " she says. " I babysit two little boys over my summer vacation, and the way they interact with each intrigued me. One of the brothers has ADHD, and to see the behavior changes in the younger brother inspired me to what to know more. " Cross says her favorite thing about her major is being able to learn about how the brain works, and how people behave in certain manners. " After college I am not totally sure what I am going to do with my major, " Cross says, " I have thought about going to graduate school, but I am not fully decided on that. I would like to be a counselor of some type, most likely with children. " Cross works at the Center for Excellence in Teach- ing and Learning as a peer mentor which she enjoys greatly. " It is kind of a preview of what a psychologist does, " Cross explains, " One thing I ' ve learned is that many things that people believe as truths are just myths, but humans believe them because they are repeated so many times. " Susan R. Grayzel is the Professor of History and In- terim Director of the Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies, " The Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies serves many functions and many constituen- cies on our campus. " Grayzel explains. " It brings scholars from outside the university to our institution to share new information and perspectives about women and men in our world, past and present, near and far, as well as allowing our faculty to share their own scholarship. " Grayzel adds that the Center provides opportuni- ties for students to learn about this field and to share their research and creativity in the annual Isom Student Gender Conference. To accompany this, there was a vibrant student art show. The Center helps support student groups and events on campus in partnership with many entities from academic departments to offices such as Health Promotions in a range of activities from Women ' s Histoi-y Month to Sexual Assault Awareness Month to World AIDS day. " As an academic unit, it helps run a minor in Gender Studies for the College of Liberal Arts and a new Graduate Certificate in Gender Studies, " Grayzel says. " Hie implementation of this certificate, which helps graduate students already admitted to an MA or PhD program gain additional knowledge of gender studies and testify to their ability to teach this interdisciplinary field, is one of the major accom- plishments of the center over the past year. " The Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies aims to be a place where students, faculty and staff- women and men - in concert with the community at large can support the particular needs of women and engage in understanding how social identity shapes individual and society at large. The College of Liberal Arts is extensive with wide subject ranges. But through all the vast majors the College encompasses, all the departments have their individual successes including numerous awards. T is is why as a whole the College of Liberal Arts is successful and highly esteemed.

A lawyer or doctor may not know the outcome of the case, but the protocol is still the same, Art is different. One may wake up with a concept, and completely change it mid-execution. To some this may seem like fun and games, but to a student working to- wards .1 Biichclor nf Fine Arts degree, it is more than thai. It is their golden ticket to their artistic future. Why do some choose to major in art? The easiest answer is that they are passionate about art, and nothing else. The BFA degree is different than a standard art degree. Senior painter Kate Freeman says, " I can use this degree with many other jobs other than just an art teacher. Many retail jobs such as a visual manager require the employee to have a BFA degree. " Unfortunately, it is not as cookie cutter as that. The art majors have to be skilled and come with a breath of fresh air. In other degrees, each student does the same thing: Study, study, study. An art degree is completely hands on and challenges for originality. Art is not just painting and drawing. Some BFA students pursue careers in other mediums. One medium, very different from the expectation, is imaging arts. This title includes forms such as photography and digital video. " When I became very interested in the camera and im- ages in general. I decided to pursue a career in it. " said imaging arts major Reeves Smith. It is incredibly time consuming. The finished product can take " anywhere from a few days, to a few weeks and sometimes even months. " Art takes time. Anyone can throw paint on a canvas, but to tell a story with it takes a little longer than that. It in- volves both undeniable passion and an incredible amount of dedication. Painting students spend a minimum of six hours painting every week. Needless to say. the classes needed to graduate with a BFA degree are not for stu- dents looking for an easy A. How does one get into the BFA program? The first step is to develop the passion and drive to pursue an art degree. Next you participate in a review where several art faculty members ask simple questions, and then one hard ques- tion in defense of your art. Freeman says, " Tliey do this so artists don ' t stand up there and say ' Well, I mean I just like the color green ' or " I mean I just think it ' s pretty ' . " Lastly, you let out the breath you have been holding since the beginning and celebrate with wine, fhe hardest part is finally over. Then the hopefuls await the decision. If accepted into the program, the student takes a ton of art classes, plus the core classes. In the semester before students graduate, they go through pre-thesis, which can be quite nerve-wracking. " You have to put up a collection of work in the Meek art gallery and stand before a group of faculty members and basically tell them how you are ready for thesis. They hound you with hard questions and you usually cry after it, " Freeman says. Finally, students have viewing shows and eventually a thesis. They arc given two chances to pass. 1 hose who do not make it through pre-review have to stay an adtlitional semester. For most, the BFA program takes about five years to complete. Some students find themselves entering the program earlier and appreciating the benefits. " The program is fun because it allows you to further develop your art. But also difficult at times because good art takes time to create and simply can not be rushed, " Smith says. The program may be demanding, but ihe end rcult more than makes up for it. Ujmn graduation the students are able to call themselves artists, rather than just hoping to be one some day. Many of the students have even sold some of their art. The major is different than most others, however; it is not one that students choose just to make money after college. Those who choose this major are incredibly passionate and disciplined in their particular artistic interest, but they have fun loo. " The reasons why I chose to go for the BFA in printmak- ingarc numerous but tosimjilify it: the way that the ink feels, the processes were fun, and worked well for my personal ex|)ressinn in my work. " said senior Amy Piaskowski, So, if you are more interested in art than your current de- gree program, definitely consider switching to the BFA. The course load may be similar or more dilficull, depend- ing on your current major. " But. " as Freeman says, " when you are an art student you get to sec heaps of naked boy models that you gel to draw. I mean, that ' s always fun. right? " Freeman and Beeves seem to enjoy the program, maybe you will too! Who knows, in a few years, your art could be sitting right next to the Mona Lisa or perhaps your photography next to an Ansel Adams. PHOTOS ALEX EDWARDS STORY STEFF THOMAS 211 :ademics ' According to many sources, the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College (SMBHC) is taking huge strides towards becoming one of the best programs of its kind in the nation. The SMBHC just reached its goal of i ,000 students in the fall of 10 1 2. " We ' ve reached our maximum growth |, from here on out, the quality of students will only improve, " says sophomore honors senator Zack Newton. In 20 11 , the Reader ' s Digest ranked the SMBHC within the top three honors colleges in the nation. Another review ranked the Honors College at the No. 9 public program in the country and first in the impact the Honors College has on the culture of its associated university. " 1 am honored and flabbergasted that we ' re top three in the nation • and also filled with a sense of urgency to honor that spot, " says sophomore Honors College senator Sierra Mannie. " We look al Ihc triumph of our students as our awards. QUOTE DOUGLASS SULLIVAN-GONZALEZ Dean Douglass Sullivan-Gonzalez, lovingly referred to by honors students as " DSG " , says that the mission of the Honors College is " to create a living, working environment where our students shoot to become citizen scholars, where they are fired by the life of the mind, that they have a real solid commitment to the public good, and a drive to find solutions. " At the end of the day, DSG and the rest of the SMBHC staff don ' t worry too much about the numbers that Reader ' s Digest spits out each year. They care about the quality of education provided and the impact that education has on their students. " We have an incredibly gifted faculty with the time and resources to help assist us with our goals. " Mannie agrees. " We look at the triumph of our students as our awards, " says DSG. " If a student gets into Harvard or MIT or Berkeley... .or they get into the med school of their choice.. .or they get the job they ' re competing for as engineers - that ' s basically how we pin awards on our chest. " Not only does the SMBHC recognize accomplishments after graduation, but they support higher learning experiences throughout the student ' s tenure with trips and projects including freshman ventures, sophomore service, junior quest and the senior thesis project, along with opportunities for funds for more exploratory research and study abroad. One of the Honors College ' s biggest accomplishments in the last calendar year was implementing the World Cup Goal, which, Gonzalez says, has an aim of " transforming ordinary courses into lived honors experiences " looking towards the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. " We ' ve got students involved in courses already that are examining the Cup from various angles - sociology, economics, history, anthropology, " says Dean Gonzalez. annmo an Looking to the future, the Honors College is pi; expansion of their current building, " Now that we have a great student base, giving us a facility to thrive in will be really exciting, " says Newton.

The ne ( step is to better develop graduate education. ' QUOTE JOHN Z KISS Our universily has been improving itself for the past decade not just in campus renova- tion but on the education quality. The university ' s graduate school is no exception to striving for the best. " The University of Mississippi has been growing and improving in the last decade, " says Dean John Z. Kiss, dean of the gradu- ate school. " The next step in this process is to better develop graduate education at the university. " Dr. Kiss is a newcomer to the university from his position as a distinguished prolessor and chair of botany at Miami University in Ohio. Dr. Kiss is internationally known for his research in botany and space technology. His research has received as much as five million in funding from organizations such as NASA. Dr. Kiss sought on his promise to cultivate a strident learning environment at the Ole Miss graduate school, " As new dean of the graduate school, " he states, " I plan to work with my faculty and administrative colleagues to help improve and expand oraduale education at the University of Mis- sissippi. " Since September. Dr. Kiss has ensured that the graduate programs— masters and doctoral— will cr eate the next generation of leaders. The graduate school ' s level of education allows the students to create innovative solu- tions to issues such as climate change, heahh care and education quality. The school provides additional advanced training that is necessary to deal with many complexities ol modern life post-graduation. The craduate school improves not just the graduate students but the undergraduates, too. The graduate students contribute to the university ' s learning environment as teaching assistants, tutors and mentors to the undergrads. This is evidenced in natural sciences courses when the graduate and undergraduates work side-byside in research teams. The graduate students also contribute to the educational quality with funded research projects that draw and welcome interest to the university. Matt Nelms is one such students whose academics elicited national attention. This October, Nelms and his classmate. Graham Jacobs, wrote an award-winning entry in a national paper competition. The paper was initially a class assignment in their graduate engineering program; now it is a second- place entry in the American National Standards Institutes ' inaugural student competition, Hailing from Colorado Springs, Colo., Nelms is pursuing two master ' s degrees: one in mechanical engineering and the other in curriculum and instruction in education. In addition to his workload, he hel])s the Center of Mathematics and Science Education support high school engineering challenges. " Ole Miss offers unique research opportu- nities and has a great faculty. " says Nelms when explaining on how he chose the Ole Miss graduate school. " After reading about the materials science research being done here and the connection with major national labs, the opportunity was too good to pass up. " Graduate students like Maria Marion take on a lot of responsibilities. Marion is a native of Memphis. Tcnn. and she is a graduate stu- dent in the Higher Education-Student Per sonncl Program. Marion has been involved in numerous programs on-cam])us and held leader positions in organizations. She has served as the social and philan- thropic director ot the Graduate Student Council. Co-Chair of the Multicultural Working Group, an instructor in the l.Dl IE 105 program, and much more. She has recently been elected to the Board of Directors for National Association of Graduate-Professional Students. Tlie pro- gram serves as the encompassing organiza- tion for all graduate students. Its mission is to provide resources, support, and advocacy to graduate students looking to enter the career world. Marion will begin serving in January 201 J,. Marion has given so much to the university yet she feels that tiie graduate school gave her more. " I have truly cnjoyetl my experi- ence. " she says, " My program specifically !ias opened doors to so many opportunities for professional development through practicum and graduate assistant positions. " She adds, " Faculty, staff and administra- tion are eager to assist in creating a holistic experience. " Nelms agrees. He initially started " just pursuing " the master ' s in mechanical: now Ik- is looking to improve the mathematics and science education in the high schools.

But in 20 1 1 , the school received its highest ranking in its history: No. i o in the nation. Dean of accountancy. Wallace Wilder, isn ' t shy when it comes to the pride he has tor his school. " As of December 201 1, we were the highest ranked accounting program in the SEC. " Wilder said. " Anytime you can say you ' re number one in the SEC. you ' ve got some good things to talk about. " Wilder said one of the main reasons for the school ' s success is the National Library of Accounting Profession, the world ' s largest collection of accounting literature, which is housed on Ole Miss ' campus. " That has been a great source of national visibility. " Wilder said, " We ' ve had professors, researchers, and Ph.D. students from around the country come to this campus because of that library. " While Wilder admits the accounting library being on campus certainly gets positive attention, he gives the majority of the credit to the award-winning faculty of the Patterson School of Accountancy, all of which are certified public accountants. Wilder said that his school values teaching excellence very highly, and four teachers have won the Elsie Hootl Outstanding Teacher .Award, as well as many other awards. " That ' s just eviticnce that our faculty is committed to being outstanding teachers, " Wilder said. Dale Fleshcr, associate dean, professor of accountancy and Arthur Andersen Lecturer, is one of the most Irctjuenl award- winners.

QUOTE J RILEY SHAW Flesher said he thinks that one of the reasons he has received so many awards is the amount of time he puts into his research and accountancy in general. " A lot of professors will do the amount of research it takes to get promoted and tenure, but to keep up throughout your career is somewhat unusual. " he said, Flesher believes that being a separate school of accountancy motivates the laculty to excel as teachers and researchers. " We want to prove that this is a great organizational structure for an accounting program and we need to work just a little harder to prove that, " he said.

Jr., dean of the School of Applied Sciences. Burton, who started his position on August 1 , 20 1 2. said the school has a variety of programs. The school ' s goal is for students to leave with a degree and hands-on skills that makes them employable. Applied sciences focuses less on theoretics and more on real life experiences according to Burton. Ii offers students the chance to participate in fields like intelligence studies and food management, which are areas that affect communities directly. " We affect the human condition, " Burton says. " Wc really arc the threads in a lot of our communities. We put it to practice.

The Dean of the Business School, Dr. Ken Cyree. is proud to head one of US News ' s Top I GO Business Schools in the United States. " We give our students opportunities to learn real-world situations. They leave well prepared to enter into business. " Dean Cyree says. junior Andre Knox agrees.

QUOTE DR KEN CYREE The business school offers many opportunities for students outside of the as well as assistance with finding a job after graduation. Internship experiences are offered in places such as Washington D.C. and New York City. Local internships are also offered. Many of these can be found during one of the many career fairs hosted by the business school or by visiting the business school website. " We don ' t want our students to just learn business, we want them to participate in it, " Cyree says of the many workplace opportunities. Senior accounting major Mario Martinez found an opportunity interning for Fat Possum Records right here in Oxford. " My internship helps put hours toward me graduating, as well as gives me a job with an established business that I can put on my resume, " Martinez says. Besides being given the opportunity to work with businesses, students are given other resources as well. Students in the Business school can sign up to receive a free subscription to Bloomsburg Businessweek Magazine. Tliis is a great tool for students to keep updated with what it happening in today ' s business world. The School of Business Administration is highly accredited for research. Tony Ammeter, associate professor of management and information systems, is currently researching how mobile technologies are used by young people, like college students. " lamlookingat why a student would use something like Facebook to find a job, " Ammeter says. " Students going into the workforce will need to make the transition from Facebook onto Linked In, which is social media for professionals. " Ammeter has been teaching business at the University of Mississippi for i o years. Originally from Canada, Ammeter fell in love with Ole Miss after one visit. " It was just by luck that I ended up at Ole Miss. I was visiting one year and I loved it. It ' s an excellent place to be a professor because there are just enough distractions to have some fun when you need it, but not so much distraction to slow you down from doing research, " says Ammeter. Ammeter ' s business expertise lies in management and information systems. He believes that the people who are benefiting from business are the most important part of the job. " Management is the art and science of bringing resources, especially people, together to solve problems efficiently and effective, " Ammeter says, " It isn ' t just a matter of throwing dollars or throwing parts together, it is all about the end result. " Contributing to the success of his students, and watching their hard work pay off is what Ammeter believes to be his greatest accomplishment. " You don ' t often hear from students, but when they go out of their way to send you an email or stop by, to me that is the greatest award, " says Ammeter about the rewards of being a professor, " says Ammeter.

Seniors from the Ole Miss School of Educa- tion are required to teach Monday and Wednesday during the fall semester atid everyday during the spring semester. " Student teaching is difficult especially in the spring semester when we go every single day and stay the whole time ,it school, " England said. England even eats lunch at the school with students. She says that heing at the school during the spring semester is especially hard because as a college student she ' s not accustomed the grueling daily schedule of an elementary school student. In addition to teaching at the school for a lull day, England and other student teachers must create lesson plans . days in advance, grade papers and manage the behavior of students. England is also assigned to a professional teacher at the elementary school and a supervisor from the education school stops by the elementary school to make sure that everything is going well with the student teachers. " Every day in the classroom is different and so rewarding, " she said. Meaghan O ' Connor is a senior elementary education major. She student teaches in Yalobusha County. O ' Connor has already taken over a few subjects and activities in her classroom. Just like England. O ' Connor has a supervisor from the education school that checks in on her teaching. 1 he supervisor and a clinical instructor from the school of education both evalu- ate O ' Connor ' s lessons.

In 1 900 Ole Miss became one of the first schools to offer an engineering education. Currently, the School of Engineering has developed into many sub-categories under one field; chemical, civil, electrical, geological and mechanical engineering. and computer and information science. Joanna David, a senior chemical engineering major and Engineering Student Body President, describes how she decided on which major to pursue: " In my junior year of high school we had a chemical engineer come and speak to the class about her career in engineering. Initially, I was very drawn to the daily diversity of her work experience, as well as her utilization of problem-solving skills. As I began the engineering program at Ole Miss, I discovered that my passion for service to others would additionally be met through a career in engineering. " She now knows that her dream career would involve " working for a company where [she] would be continually challenged and have to use problem- solving skills on a daily basis. " " Nearlv everything that is used on a daily basis has been designed, constructed, or improved by an engineer. Engineering literally shapes the world in which we live, " says David. " Additionally, engineering is an incredible ministry to others. Engineers have the opportunity to change the lives of countless individuals through endless possibilities, including ticsigning water treatment systems for communities in third-world countries, inventing lite-saving pharmaceuticals, constructing schools and homes, creating alternative luel sources, etc. On another note, mechanical engineering, a field that solves problems concerning industries such as oil, automotive, and energy conservation, attracts students who enjoy thinking of ways to find solutions to new and existing challenges. In order to test these students, the Center for Intelligence and Security Studies initiates a Capstone Project, which involves either original research or an open- source analysis of an intelligence-related issue. Through Institutional Review Board Irainingand writing multiple drafts of one ' s thesis, the students assemble their projects throughout the course ol the spring semester, " The process for completing the Capstone Project takes three to four months, involving many long hours and late nights, " says Dr. Rajendran. professor and chair of mechanical engineering. Furthermore, the Capstone Project allows mechanical engineer majors to demonstrate their knowledge on a specific topic, and relate that topic on a worldwide spectrum. Overall, Ole Miss engineers have received national recognition, such as Barry Goldwater Scholarships, and have been selected to take part in woridwide opportunities, like the Fulbright Program. Without a doubt, students within the department have proven their knowledge and development through numerous awards and achievemenLs. all of which source back to their professors that dedicate their time to teaching the future of engineering. Dr. ,- lexander Cheng, the dean of the School of Engineering, describes his love for teaching at Ole Miss: " Mississippi students deserve a first-class education and a first class engineering school to help keep up with the technology and manufacturing that the world is producing. I am pleased to help educate the students in order lor them to be able to help the stale on an economical level. " Adtlitionally the School of Engineering has completely transformed in its 1 n years of establishment, ami at this rate of achievement nmch can be expected from future Ole Miss alumni.

Through all the internships, classes and competitions, the most important aspect is to be able to prepare students for jobs. STORY MADDIE POE 45 REPORTING THE REAL WORLD For the last three years, visiting professor Bill Rose has taken journalism students on local reporting trips. They have i raveled to newspapers across Missis- sippi, including Brookhnven, Greenwood, Holly Springs, McComb, Madison, Tupelo and most recently, Hattiesburg. Rose is a fellow at the Overby Center lor Southern Journalism and Politics, and an adjunct professor in the Meek School of Journalism and New Media. In the past, Ole Miss organized student-reporting trips; however, it has become a more fretjuent occurrence over the last few years with the help of the school ' s dean. Will Norton. Norton wanted to make these trips a regular occurrence for journalism students. The journalism depart- ment books hotels for the students and pays for all expenses on the trip. Rose leads reporting field trips twice a semester, in the fall and spring. His priority is for students to gain first-hand reporting experience. " The idea is to give the students real world, dead- line, journalism experience. " said Rose. " It ' s kind of like a mini-internship experience. " The students get a byline and stories in daily and weekly newspapers and get one-on-one coaching and editing and the local newspapers get free stories. The newspapers look forward to eager, young journalists and welcome their help. " It helps build good relations with newspapers around the state, and it helps our students gain confidence and ability. " Rose said. As a print journalism major. I have been on three reporting trips. I have reported in Holly Springs, Madison and Hattiesburg, My experience thus far has been insightful and rewarding. The first-hand experience is unparalleled. I have learned what the editors are looking for when hir- ing future journalists, improved my writing and interviewing skills, and established contacts that could possibly lead to my future employment. Hattiesburg, commonly called the ' Hub City ' , is where I call home. Last summer, I interned at the local newspaper. The Hattiesburg American and was excited to return this semester and write a story. My goal is to seize every opportunity offered as I strive to mature not only as a person, but also as the best journalist I can be. Once we arrived, 1 was given a story on the recent revitalization of downtown Hattiesburg and more specifically. Front Street. During my assignment, I had the chance to interview the owners of Click Boutique and Gallery and Southern Fried comics, two retail businesses in part responsible for bringing downtown back to life. For years before the revitalization efforts, downtown lacked people and business and was recognized as the undesirable side of town. I had the chance to report on Front Street specifi- cally and its recent revitalization. Downtown has made significant strides, and It was awesome to hear from business owners their passion for what they do. Not only are the reporting trips great practice for the real newsroom, but also the guidance Bill Rose provides is so beneficial. Professor Rose is a great instructor, editor and is always encouraging. I ' m so thankful for the opportunity to accompany other journalism stu- dents and have Bill, as he ' s affectionately called, as our leader. Rose has gone far beyond the walls of the class- room and taken it upon hisself to send journalism students out into professional environments. He has personally challenged me. encouraged me to be the best reporter I can be, and he is always supportive. And for that. I will be forever grateful. 46 (Left).

STORY KAYLA VISE PHOTOS THOI»IAS CRANING 471 RBiasv Close your eyes and picture a large brick building with two protruding wings, tall glass windows, and a circle drive. The building described is not a scene from an architectural magazine: it is our law school. Inside, our future lawyers, politicians, and possibly Supreme Court Justices spend countless hours preparing for the Bar exam. TTie program began at the University of Mississippi in 1854, and is recognized as the fourth state supported law school in the nation. TTie first class only consisted of seven students, a major difference from the currently enrolled 500 students. As the program grew, the previous facilities were outdated and the new LEED-certified building was built. The newly built law center was dedicated to former law professor and chancellor, Robert C. Khayat in January The la» school has a rea( facuhva norld- class facililx and inno a(i c programs. It is Ihe school I ish I had attended. QUOTE RICHARD GERSHON While the large building seems a hit intimidating, as is the word law school itself, the faculty and students connect. Assistant Dean and Law Professor Matthew Hall is one such example. TTiis one professor has made a large impact on students with his talent and interest in helping his students. In 2009. Hall received the Ben Hardy Faculty Excellence Award. Tlie next year, 20 1 o, he received the Outstanding Law Professor Award. Dean of the Law School, Richard Gershon, calls Hall " a wonderful adviser to the Moot Court Board. " Hall has been coaching and advising Moot Court teams for over i o years. Ole Miss has one of the oldest courts in the country founded approximately 140 years ago, according to Hall. The court consists of 32 members that are divided into i 5 teams. Tliese teams are then divided into different categories. Currently, the Pace environmental team is the two time defending champion of the environmental law competition. Moot Court Board chair Drew GrifBn says. " I cannot emphasize how laudable of an accomplishment that is for the members of the team, the board, and the law school as a whole. " Griffin is an Ole Miss student in his third year of law school and he is committed to the court. He says, " Aside from classes. Moot Court is the only extracurricular in which I participate. It is absolutely my favorite aspect of law school. " 1 he board ' s dedication and preparation can easily be overlooked. I he Moot Court is a little more formal than a regular intercollegiate extracurricular. " It is not a commitment to be taken lightly, " says Hall. " Members of our top teams regularly spend 1 00 hours writing their brief and another 1 00 hours practicing their oral arguments - all in the course ol the six weeks leading up to a competition. " This dedication has certainly paid off. as our Moot Court Board is one of the Top 25 in the country. Other awards include but are not limited to second place in both the National First Amendment Competition and National Givens Criminal Procedure Competition. And in 20 1 1 . two Ole Miss law students, Rachel Mullen and Robert Parrott. were awarded the Scribes Brief Writing Award at the American Bar Association Convention. For those of you who want to follow in the footsteps of these talented students, getting into law school is only half the feat. Dean Gershon advises " Getting into law school is not too difficult if you do well in your undergraduate program, take practice LSAT testi, and make connections with those in the admissions office at the school of your choice. " Hard work pays off, and the accomplishments of Ole Miss law alumni, faculty, and current students are proof. Students of law know that the Law School Admissions Test is the golden ticket. The wiggle room that students had in undergraduate programs is filled up by pressure. " The LSAT is a single test that, at many schools, counts as much as four years of grades. " says Hall. Dean Gershon says. " The law school has a great faculty, a world-class facility and innovative programs. It is the school I wish I had attended.

ESI 1854 IHE UNIVERSIlr OF MISSISSIPPI M v M m}J] 491 ACADEMICS HOW TO SURVIVE: LAW SCHOOL Reflect back to your high school years and rccjll those students that sal next to you in the one AP class you courageously decided to l;ike - those students that your parents religiously implied you needed to he more similar to. Now imagine those same 4.0 students struggling to keep their heads above water - it ' s hard to imagine, isn ' t it? Well, that ' s what three years of law school docs to even the smartest of students. It forces people to not swim freely like they may have done in previous college courses, but rather survive being dunked under water by a 300-pound sumo wrestler. Sure, one might end up stronger and in the case of law school more intelligent but they will come above water exhausted and short of breath. Purchasing a voodoo doll is number one on a current law student ' s shopping list, right next to coffee. Not only is stunted growth a risk for law students, but also surviving the pressure that follows them day-to-day. In order to alleviate stress, law students should take note of the five basic steps on how to survive law school: 1 .) " Let ' s go to the square tonight! " is the usual saying from an Ole Miss student on the weekend. " I want to go out but I have so much to do for class. Y ' all have fun! " is a typical response from a law student. You will always feel the need to study the material that no matter how many times you read still makes zero sense, leaving the library will benefit your overall happiness. " Even though when i go out i still think about all that I have to do, " Stephanie Brooks, second-year law student, says, " I recommend going out and having a night on the town in order tn remain sane. " Go out, have a memorable weekend and designate Sunday Fun-day to be Sunday Study-day. 2.) Adding to the fact that law students need to relax. Noah Saniord, a native of Sanford, Miss, and a first year. says. " Have a little time during each work-week to remove yourself from anything law related or you ' ll be overly stressed. " Sanford explains that the source of immense stress is the competitive nature of law school along with details concerning the grading curve. " As confusing as the curve seemed to me. I felt stressed out just listening to [the teacher ' s] description of the pressure, " Sanford says, " I will be taking some time every week to relax my mind about the Law School grading processes. " 3.) On a more serious note. Cory Ferraez, from Columbus. Miss, and a second-year student, describes the importance of building connections within the field, tlcscribing how one needs to be marketable to his or her future employers. After law school, graduates will seek their careers and only some will earn their dreamed-about position. " Students need to focus on the intangibles rather than the tangibles, " Farraez says, " Who you meet and the relationships that you form are more important that getting another A+. " In all. the students that spend a majority of their day under the roof of the law school need to put more focus on who they meet, because those people may someday lead to career prospects. 4.) To relieve stress through exercise, all individuals have personal workout plans that best suit their lifestyles, whether they participate in running on a treadmill or doing a core circuit. " The best outlet to relieve the stress of the competitiveness is to punch a punching bag, " Brooks says. 5.) Finally, Cory Ferraez emphasizes the importance of " finding ways to have fun with the material, " in that without a little excitement the law may become overbearing and exhausting. Whether you feel the desire to dance around to Taylor Swift while reading over the lecture notes or even rewarding yourself with snacks between every bit of material that you understand, nobody will judge you! As the how-to portion of Law School survival comes to a close, I hope that you realize that although studying is extremely important, so is eating, going to the bathroom, and cleaning your room. Don ' t forget to prioritize your life, take a little time each day and remove yourself from the law (but always buckle up while in a car), and finally, when that 300- pound sumo wrestler goes to push you down, remember to " just keep swimming.

While historically the M hool has been exceptionally strong, it has been recognized ilnouwhout this past year in the form of several national awards. ( )Il Miss " School of Pharmacy has been acknowledged for the C ivstal APPLE, or Academic-Practice Partnerships for Learning Excellence Award; the Lawrence C. Weaver Transformative Service Award; the IDeA program, or Institutional Development Award; and two recently retired professors received the Chalmers Award. " It ' s more than just an application - the American Association of the College of Pharmacy awards it. They send a team out into the community to see the impact that they are having, " said Dr. David Allen, dean of the pharmacy school, concerning the Lawrence C. Weaver Transformative Service Award. The IDeA program - awarded to the University by the National Institute of Health to help broaden the institution ' s biomedical and behavioral research - is also significant. Cutler serves as the principal investigator, and most of the investigators and jiarticipants are from the School of Pharmacy. " This award will allow our university to continue enhancing our expertise in biomedical research and further develop our infrastructure. " Cutler said. Undergraduates, graduate students, professionals and even local high school students have ample opportunities to participate in dilferent aspects of the program. The grant is from the NIH, and is designed to provide funds to institutions that arc in the 23 lowest represented states in the United States, as well as Puerto Rico. It stimulates biomedical research, and is designed to build the institution ' s infrastructure, which includes faculty, staff, students antl instrumentation in the labs. It is very excitinjj for mc lo {{ivc bach ihc experiences ISc had hile row in up in a hibalor en iornmenl. QUOTE STEPHEN CUTLER The IDeA program is composed of three phases, each lasting five years. The current award of Sio million is for the Phase Two Years of the three-phase program. Overall, if the university is successful in securing all three phases, the program will generate $25 to $30 million dollars for the school. The three-phase program is designed to develop faculty and build research cores. One research core will include translational scientists or practitioners on the Jackson campus. " We hope to take some of the ideas that we developed in phase one and move it to the clinical setting. " Cutler said. Phase two involves early entry scientists, or someone who just started their research career, and also mid and senior scientists, who " graduated " from phase one. The metrics of graduating include scientists and research cores becoming self-sustaining to the point where they could go out on their own to compete lor diiferent grants. A young scientist who is not experienced in writing grants or receiving grant awards is given the opportunitv and tooU to learn iliis. and once he has. is able to " graduate. " One ol the research ideas Irom phase one that is currently being developed is the ability to potentially manage drug abuse. Compounds have been designed to block the effects ol certain ilrugs. such as cocaine and methamphetamine. Culler ' s interest in this field came from his lather, who was a natural products chemist. The first time that he stepjicd into a lab was when he was only five years old, " It is very exciting for me to give back the experiences I ' ve had while growing up in a laboratory environment. " said Cutler. The way that the School of Pharmacy works is unique. They follow a " three plus four " program, which includes three years of prepharmacy and four years of the professional program to obtain a Pharm.D. This year, the number of students entering the professional program was the highest that it has ever been. " I think that (the class) is an indication of the growing need for more healthcare workers in our state. " said Eslian Safay, senior pharmacy major. " We are always ranked at the bottom of every list when it comes to health-related issues. The fact that our university has made a commitment to improve this dilemma and to be part of a class that shows signs of this commitment is a great feeling.

Luckday is first of its kind in Mississippi and the nation. The Ole Miss I lousing Committee honored the resident assistants at the LRC as RA Residence Hall Staff of the Year in 201 1. At the residential colleges, there is a senior fellow that lives alongside the students. The senior fellow at the RC for the last four vears has been Daniel O ' Sullivan. who lives in the RC in a " house like " space with his wife and children. While this is O ' SuUivan ' s last year at the RC. he has enjoyed watching it grow and become the marvelous community it is today. The senior fellow for the past three years at the LRC has lieen Lthel YoungMinor. Young-Minor lives there with her two young daughters. " Our residential college here at Olc Miss is a placeof cross sections of the university population. " says O ' Sullivan. " It is a home to students of many different ages, classifications, ethnic backgrounds and student athletes. " With over 800 applicants this past year, the RC can enroll less than 300 students yearly. Tile Luckyday selection is based on students who may have but not limited to an average GR ' V of 5.6 and an .VCT of 26, leadershiji and service. Kristen LlHs, junior marketing communications major, who currently lives in Luckday. says, " Luckyday has provided for a wonderful experience during my student career at Ole Miss. In addition to educational success and life lessons 1 have acquired along the way through the program, I have also benefitted Irom the family atmosphere that the LRC has provided me during the time I lived there. " She added that Luckyday has given her a strong support system that promoted her academics. Students at the residential college have access to events and amenities such as a library, a kitchenette on each floor, a teaching kitchen, computer labs, a fitness room, and a downstairs cafeteria, One favorite of the students who live in the residential colleges is the annual crawfish boil in the spring, which invites all students from the university to come and dig into some fresh crawfish. Rachel Voss. RC freshman liberal arts major, gushes, " My favorite part of the RC is definitely the activities they offer to the residents, li keeps me involved! " The RC culture tends to be highly individualistic. Students are very close here and they get more opportunities to come out and he themselves. Also at Luckday, the students still like to have fun but they are more academically locused. Young-Minor, the senior fellow of LRC says. " We in Luckday have to be like a trampoline that catches you after your fall. We have that impact on students, where dorms anti other facilities do not. " She added that Luckyday ' s outstanding achievement was having only two students finish last year under 2.0 GPA. To live in the residential colleges, the selection committee looks for a very holistic person; one they think will be a good fit to the community. The residential colleges have so much to offer and much for students to benefit from. O ' Sullivan thinks. " Having an upper classmen plug-in, the convenience ol faculty at your fingertips and support of a community are the major benefits of living here in the residential colleges.

The Stutly Abroad Oltice is there for the students with an itch to see a country: France. Ireland, Spain, wh;itevcr will get them out of America. Anyone with a good standing with the university, the dean ' s signature and a passport can study abroad, but for the more curious about the world outside of America there is the Croft histitute. Located between the Lyceum circle and the Grove, Croft is more than a building with a sprawling porch with cushioned cabana furniture: it is a medium- sized, highly driven international studies program that pushes its students to excel, The size of the international studies major is small compared to other schools on campus, but the academic environment is rigorous. Every student is required to take on at least one language and its associated culture. In order to complete the major the students are required to complete and defend a senior thesis. All students are required to study at least one semester abroad. Quite a few go abroad for a whole year and still graduate in four years. " The study-abroad component is one of the most popular aspects of our curriculum. " said Dr. Keei Gisjjen. Executi ' e Director of the Institute and Professor oi History. " Students like Croft because of the llexibility of the interdisciplinary curriculum and our emphasis on foreign-language learning. Students select a language of their choice, work on it for four years, study abroad during the junior year in a country that speaks their language, and come back transformed. " " Currendy, we have more students studying than at any time in the past, " said Dr. William Schenck. Croft ' s associate director. The number of graduating students from Croft is at an all-time high of 30. " The junior class is the biggest class. " Dr. Schenck said, " TTie next year ' s graduating class could lie more than 40. " The number may be small compared to other schools but the size of the student body within Croft allows for more thoughtful discussions with the professors and classmates. The Institute facilitates these relarions by offering Croft Dollars or " Crollars " for participation on intemarional panel discussions. The students use these to buy Croft -labeled sweatshirts and accessories. However, the Crollars are worth a lot less than the knowledge the intemarional majors leam get from the panels the Croft professors put together. The panels covered an array of topics ranging from as personal as national identity to across the seas such as the societal relations between countries. This past year the two Croft professors, Drs. Kate Centellas and Vivian Ibrahim, have put together a speaker series focusing on nationality identity-related issues. In the fall semester, a panel of LIniversity of Mississippi professors from the departments of Sociology. Anthropology. English and Southern Studies discussed the " Global South. " at Croft, They looked at how the LI.S. South interacts with the world, and how parts of other countries faced some of the same challenges as the South. They concluded discussing with how the regions could leam from each other. Later in the fall semester. Dr. Charles King of Georgetown University came to speak at Croft about " Nationalism. Separatism, and Democracy. " an analysis of the way in which nationalism is reshaping itself in the current era. The students can be involved in the institute in more ways than earning Crollars. There is the Croft Student Senate, an organization that works to improve academic and social aspects within the Institute. It is made of three representatives from each classification of students within Croft. The Senate has worked with the faculty and staff on revising academic requirements for the Croft students. Tliey also worked to bring together the upperclassmen with the lowerclassmen together to share experiences via ice cream socials and such. Ov ' erseeing the Croft Senate as president this year is Kathryn Trabue. a senior double major and a direct liaison between Croft students and faculty. She meets with the facult) ' after each Senate meeting to try and collaborate their and the students ' ideas. As a true-blooded Croft student she has two majors: international studies with Russian minor and Spanish major with an Economics minor. " My concentrations for Croft, " Trabue clarified, " are Latin America, global business, and economics, " When she was a sophomore in high school she met a member of the Foreign Ser ' ice in her world studies class. " I knew that I wanted to do something internationally focused, " Trabue said, " I thought his life sounded so amazing, being able to live in and interact with so many different cultures. " She decided that the program was vorth looking into then. " 1 applied, was accepted, and now live, eat and breathe Croft. " Croft is a small privately funded Institute with an intense workload for selectively accepted students, but the community spirit within the building is strong as the faculty and students come together to discuss global affairs between LInited States and Europe. Latin America, East Asia or the Middle East. The students will walk away with a wealth of knowledge of about the world beyond the native homeland.

A few tents, a Grove tradition as well as the red and blue garbage cans scattered around the stage, were located nearby; one sold t-shirts with Ole Miss and Bentley ' s face and name emblazoned on thcin. The crowd grew larger and larger: faces young and old. some obscured by cowboy hats and others with coakies laced around their necks. A lone voice bellowed. " ARE YOU READY?! " People thundered. ' HELL YES... DAMN RIGHT... " and reveled in Hotty Toddy cheer all night long. It was the first week of school and right smack in the middle of the week on a Wednesday night. Bentley stepped on stage in the Grove to a red and blue crowd. Glow sticks, twirled in the air and around bodies, bounced in the night as Bentley crooned. " Ole Miss is the best ever with concerts and the students. " Julia Berger, junior nutrition major, yelled. " Ole Miss concerts are absolutely the best! " She was then swept into the arms of her friends while cheering yet another Bentley song. The tree concert was planned by the Student Programming Board who worked hand in hand with Southeastern Attractions to draw Bentley to the Ole Miss campus. The SPB has done this the past two years with Gavin DeGraw and the Goo Goo Dolls who both performed free concerts in the Grove.

In put this leal into perspective. 50 years ago James Meredith became the first African American student to walk the campus of the University of Mississi[ipi. and his admission was followed by riots and chaos. Ole Miss has come a long way since 1 962, and Pearson is an example of the progress that has been made. However, she explains, " I didn ' t run in order 10 be the first black Homecoming Queen, I just ran as a person. it was ten times more meaningful that 1 was voted on for myself. It wasn ' t until after I won that people began to realize I was the first African American Homecoming Queen in Ole Miss history. " At the start of the fall semester, Pearson had hesitation towards running for Homecoming Queen. She felt that that her shyness would hurt her campaign. Pearson gives credit to Adam lilackwell, her campaign manager. " He would tell me how awesome 1 was and that I could do anything, " says Pearson. " Overall, I had a ton of support from a great group of friends that pushed me towards running for Queen. " Courtney expresses her gratitude towards Adam Blackwell for his unconditional support. Ryan Jones for constructing her mini-billboard in The Grove, and Tyler Jackson for designing the stickers, flyers, and all other Homecoming-related elements. The dedication Irom Pearson ' s campaign crew allowed for not only a smiling Homecoming Queen, but also a queen who has changed the history of the University of Mississippi. " We ' ve never had one [African-American homecoming queen] and it ' s so amazing that I was fortunate enough to be the very first one. It shows that the student body is progressing and the face of Ole Miss is changing. ' Pearson said. Undoubtedly. Pearson has checked off a significant feat tor the University of Mississippi, and her success marks a change in the historv, and the future, of the school. Not only has her success become historical, but it will, without a doubt, impact other individuals in terms of reaching their goals. Pearson put it this way: " It shatters glass ceilings, opens doors, and says anyone can do anything they put their mind to. It doesn ' t matter il you ' re not i 20 pounds, if you ' re not Greek, or if you don ' t drive a new Mercedes- you can do it. " Fifty years ago, James Meredith ' s attendance at the University of Mississippi became more than just a young man seeking an education, it became a challenging adventure that changed the face of the university. Five decades later, Ole Miss can proudly proclaim Pearson, a 2 i -year-old senior, as the University of Mississippi ' s first African American Homecoming Queen. Her name will forevermore represent yet another turning point for Ole Miss, just as James Meredith helped transform the university years ago. In all. the University of Mississippi has conquered enormous obstacles since it was founded in I 844, all of which have lead us to Pearson, the smiling face that has changed history.

THANKS. EVENT. 69| CAMPUS I IPF It ' s the weekend in Oxford and over 3.000 Ole Miss students have accumulated across town and they ' re having fun. No, it ' s not a game day in the Grove or even a Friday night on the Square - it ' s the university ' s Big Event. The premise of the Big Event is simple. Olc Miss students work together in small groups for a day ol service projects across thecity of Oxford and Lafayette County. The projects include assisting the elderly, yard work and painting. Student volunteers completed nearly 300 projects in Oxford and Lafayette County for the Big Event. Tliat is the greatest number of projects the program as com- pleted to date. TTie Big Event takes quite a bit of organization and planning to get underway. UM ' s Big Event is based on the program of the same name at Texas A M University. Douglas Odom was co-chair for recruitment and volun- teers for the Big Event, Speakingof organizing the event. Odom said, " It was definitely a bit of a challenge to implement the Big Event here in Oxford when you consider just how big Texas A M and College Station are in comparison to Ole Miss and Oxford. " he continued. " We have set what we believe are realistic goals in these first few years, always looking to grow and refine the Big Event. " While 20 1 2 ' s Big Event was only the second service event of its kind to be held, the university ' s record of large-scale student-lead community service projects is extensive. Beginning in 2003, the university held UMSFusion. a student-lead service event that allowed students to volunteer in Oxford and Lafayette County. Sarah Robinson coordinated recruitment, finance, fundraising and public relations for the Big Event. She says it was easy to get Ole Miss students on board for a larger service event, but getting the community on board was a different task. Giving back for just one day has truly show n the comnuinily how grateful we are to li c in such a wonderful tow n. QUOTE KfJISIIN VOLKtW " It has been more difficult to get the community on board. Luckily, the university administration, mayor of Oxford and Lafayette County Board of Super ' isors haveollcred much insight and support. " Robinson said. Although there were some early hiccups, the Big Event was quite a success for those involved. Big Event volun- teers even helped set up a wedding in Taylor. Robinson calls volunteering for the Big Event a special experience and one of her favorite college memories. " It was awesome to not only serve the community, but to also see the affect of service on the community mem- bers and students, " she said. Kristin Volker was co-director of marketing and public relations tor the Big Event. She recalls a moment when she and other Big Event organizers went door-to-door and they encountered an elderly Oxford woman. " She looked at us with tears in her eyes and said all she wants is a few students to come out and spend time talking with her, " Volker said. The woman told Volker and her group that her husband had recently passed and she was lonely. Before Volker ' s group left, the woman kept thanking them for making her day. The woman told them to never forget that the smallest gesture can change a life. Robinson says that the Big Event has brought commu- nity members and Ole Miss students together. Volker added, saying. " Members of the community are beginning to see the students in a different light. " She continued. " Giving back for just one day has truly shown the community how grateful we are to live in such a wonderful town. " Odom believes the Big Event has been rewarding for students. " Our students have the chance to realize that so many people this close to home need help. " PHOTOS PHILLIP V ALLER STORY JON HAYWOOD Ip Opposite.

There were seven categories: animated short, documentar) ' feature and documentary short, narrative feature, narrative short and experimental short and finally Mississippi-based film that could be a feature or nanative. Each film was judged in its respective categories by the judges; Alan Arrivee. assistant professor and the head of the cinema minor at Ole Miss, was one of ihe judges. He spent the weekend scoring the films. One film came up. and Arrivee said, " I have to excuse myself from this. 1 can ' t judge this one; it ' s made by my students. " The film was TUBE. It was a movie about a depressed elderly lady who spent so many hours in front of her television that she forgets her life outside of the screen. It won the Mississippi Film for Best Narrative. The movie was made by collaborations between seniors Jordan Berger. Houston Settle. Britt Allen and Daniel Russell. The actress. Rebecca Jernigan, local actress and storyteller who starred in TLIBE. won the Special Jury Award for Acting- Berger, senior theatre major and cinema minor, was the screenwriter and overall director of the film with Settle, senior theatre major and cinema minor, as the co-director and collaborative screenwriter. They were the youngest filmmakers to win the award in the Oxford Film Festival. TTie screenwriting for TUBE was inspired by Berger ' s grandmother who suffered from depression. " Tliis was about seven years ago. " Berger said, " My grandfather passed away, and my grandmother became lonely. She spent a lot of time 72 on the couch downstairs in Iront ol hei television She ' s much better now. " " It was actually 1 louston. " Berger motioned to his best friend of eight years, " who came up with the idea of e, aggerating the conditions. The film was an exaggerated version of what my grandmother went through— we wanted to create this film of a lonely woman sitting in front of the television. " " We ' ve been told that our film reminded them ot Requiem for a Dream, " said Settle, llie movie Requiem for a Dream featured an old widow who spent time watching infomercials and became addicted to the medicine she bought off the commercials so she could have a chance to appeu 1 on television. Collaboration was an important thing that contributed to the film, " It was good that we ' ve been friends for eight years, " said Settle, " we knew each other well, and it was easier to work with each other. " They praised the cinematographer. Britt Allen, and the composer, Daniel Russell. " Allen had these really cool shots. ' Berger began. Settle said. " And Russell came up with this whistling eflect, " as he twirled his arm as if spinning something. " It went whooooooooooo. ver) ' creepy. " Daniel Russell, senior southern studies major and cinema minor, was the composer for TUBE. He worked with Jordan and Houston and created suspenseful yet original music. I he duo who shares a house with a couple other roommates used their home as the set. " It was a convenient setting, " Settle said.

While paying members can hold office, vote for officers and get discounts on tournament entry fees and t-shirts, Mallory Hargett, junior journalism major and OMGA president, said that there are plenty of people who choose not to pay dues. " There ' s no obligation. " Hargett said. " They just show up, we play games, we have a great time and then they leave. " Hargett is a relaxed president but tries to watch out for her members and their academic standing. " The one thing that 1 tell our members at the start of generally every semester is. ' Your grades come first. ' " ' Hargett tends to shy away from playing some of the games at meetings, but not because she is a girl. " I have a flaw in that I hate to lose.

As a gentle wind flowed past the Grove and through the Circle, the four flags of the military, as well as the American Flag, rippled with the breeze, signifying the start of the 9 1 i Memorial Run. After departing at 6 a.m., the unified group made their way to the Court House on the Square, and then returned to a motivational speech by Director of Athletics Ross Bjork. " Bjork ' s speech really seemed to capture the essence ot why 1 volunteered, and what service means to me and this country. For me. my motivation stems from a desire to defend and honor my country, family, and the values 1 hold dearest, " said Paul Boddeker. freshman Army ROTC member. Throughout the run, the ROTC members encouraged one another, by way of call-and-response shouts. " While we still run together and work together, motivating cadences were yelled within the separate branches, rellecting how the military is at large - the different branches work separately but come together for the bettering of our country, " said senior JaiTod Snell. For some individuals, serving their country has deep roots within their veins, and their blood streaks with red. white, and blue patriotism.

Everybody knows what it is. Some people go there, but not many think aliout the trainers that put the workouts together. Most of the trainers go through a training course with the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, which certifies personal trainers and group exercise leaders. Currently, the Turner Center employs eight personal trainers, and it seems they each got into the job for different reasons. " I have lived and breathed it since 1 was in my mom ' s stomach, " said Alley Daily, a junior business marketing major, whose mother was in group fitness classes while pregnant with her. Daily has grown up in the fitness industry; her parents own and operate a gym. Once she turned 1 6. she was able to become certified and began working there. After coming to Ole Miss, Alley got involved at the Turner Center teaching fitness classes and working as a personal trainer. She is also the undergraduate assistant for all of group fitness, TTie group fitness classes that she is currently teaching are Pilalcs, strength training and Alley ' s Happy Hour, which is a surprise class. Peo])le who come to it do not know what they are going to do. Some days it is cardio, strength training or even Zumba, a Latin inspired dance workout. " Nothing is as rewarding as it is to watch people set goals for themselves and actually be able to see them achieve these goals with your help, " Dailey said. During her personal training sessions she is able to watch her clients grow physically, mentally and emotionally. Dailey leels that when clients are close to her age she is able to relate to them and be more on their level. " I can become a friend and not just an instructor. When I ' m able to tlo that, the clients are more willing to work and do every exercise the best that they can do. " she said. Jonathan Lundahl works as a personal trainer at the Turner Center in addition to working as an exercise teaching assistant with some of the fitness classes that Ole Miss offers. He is an instructor for weigh tlifting, racquetball. tennis and body contouring. " 1 like teaching people the correct way to do things, " said Lundahl, a first year graduate student studying to get a M.S.E.S in exercise science. Lundahl became involved with personal training a one year ago due to his major in exercise science. He began working out in high school and has always enjoyed it. " As a personal trainer I have had a few clients that act like they hate their life whenever we work out, and you are always going to have people that do not want to do it, " Lundahl said. Even though those people almost changed his mind about Turnei Center Ills, chosen profession, he stuck with it, because that is not always the case. Sometimes he has cUents that are " absolute treasures " through their positive attitudes and self-motivation. Another of the Turner Center ' s group fitness instructors is Jamie McCulloch, a fifth year senior elementary education major. She started out working at the desk, and then decided to try out the certification courses so she could become a trainer and fitness instructor. " I never saw myself in group fitness at all. I just saw the personal trainers and thought it would be cool to do. It is something that I can use for the rest of my life, and is an exciting opportunity that 1 can later use as a job. " said McCulloch, who teaches cycling, " Butts trainer Julia Koch leads her fitness group during a nighl Step It Up session. Koch teacnt inii ' P nincss ddbbKb H A B 1,1,.

She went through the AI A workshop, and even went on to obtain a Mad Dogg Spinning certification. The workshop covers every aspect of the cla» that instructors need to know. In the workshop, they read a booklet discussing the physical anatomy and how the body works with different exercises. These booklets also include good warm ups and cool downs to do and helpful lips for leaching. " A whole class is a little scary, and I have found that you need to be goofy and just be youn,elf, which works well, " McCulloch said. Troy Mannino is another member of the I urner Center staff who plans to use what he is learning as an instructor for his future job. " I feel like exercise is the best medicine for your body and I am going to tell my patients that one day, " said Mannino, a junior chemical engineering major who plans to go to medical school. lie is in his second year as a personal trainer and teaches a PRX class, " lioot Camp " and serves as a fitness coordinator. The Bool Camps goal is for people to take the initiative for their health and is taught at 6:30 in the morning, so that it does not conflict with anyone s schedule, except maybe one ' s sleeping schedule, " As a pergonal trainer, to be a part of my clients ' goals is very personal and is a team thing.

" Visiting Assistant Professor of Southern Studiev Michelle Coffey saw the Grove ' s atmosphere as an opportunity to increase exposure of the program. Early in the season Coffey recruited several of her students to put a tent up right outside the steps of Barnard Observatory. The lent was filled with free food and live music, but most importantly it was filled with students of the program. " 0 ' erall it ' s just an inviting atmosphere where anyone and everyone is allowed to come and enjoy the Grove and that ' s what its for, its for everyone. That ' s why we ' re here, " William Fowler. Southern Studies student said. " I think that any student that wanders by should feel welcome. There are people that are willing to welcome them here with open arms. They are able to come here and have a good time, have a drink and enjoy the Grove for what it is. " After the highly publicized election protests on campus, the students decided they wanted to change the name of the tent but keep the same theme. They came up with " We Are One Mississippi. " " We are one Mississippi is a message to the students of the university, to the administration ol the university, to anyone associated with the university and it ' s a positive atmosphere and about fairness and civility in your treatment towards others and yourself. " Fowler said. While some tents deliver a message, others promote a name. Making a debut along the Walk of Champions this fall was Victoria ' s Secret ' s Ole Miss Pink Collegiate Collection. Ole Miss student Courtney Byrd. an intern with PINK. said that she considered the tent a success. " More people became aware of the presence of PINK at Ole Miss because of our bright pink tent nestled in a sea of red and blue tents, " Byrd said. A lot of different people stopped by because they were curious why there was a pink tent in [he Grove.Young women and female students were most attracted to the tent and there were at least one or two people that were stopped by the lent at all limes. " Among the most notable tents along the Walk of Champions arc those belonging to the University ' s Greek life. Sophomore Cole DeVilliers and junior Matthew Williams of Phi Psi said the Grove is the best tailgate setting in America and it allows them to reach out to new people as well as keep in touch. " It ' s good, it allows alumni to come back for games and meet the current members and allows us to maintain a good relationship. " DeVilliers said. " Especially when you play Texas cause that means a lot of alumni come back in town for that game, which means they ' ll be at our tent with us. " Williams said the Grove allows the iraternities to recruit new members. " Kids from around Oxford come by and it lets us get to know ihem, " Williams said. " ' Also, other guys " brothers will come visit and they ' ll stop by the tent and lets us get to know them. " DeVilliers said he makes a new acquaintance every home game, " Usually every Grove I meet someone new, alumni or other kids, " he said. STORY JACOB BATTE CAMPUS Th.

Brouckaert said the opening of the Food Bank has been helping out, essful. with many studt nl volunteers " It has gone better than expected, " Brouckaert said. " Less than a year ago. the Food Bank was nothing more than an idea. It is incredible to think that in less than a year we have been able to take that idea and turn it into reality. So many different people and organizations have done so much to get us where we are. " Robert Cummings. faculty advisor for the group, has Ijcen around since the idea was brought up. Cummings said the food bank fills a need on campus, one that shouldn ' t surprise anyone familiar with Mississippi. " As we stretch as an institution to improve access and fulfill our mission of providing higher education to all Mississippians regardless of resources, it becomes more and more apparent that we ' re in the poorest state in the union, " Cummings said, " Many of our students are arriving on campus without the infrastructure and the support network that we have come to take for granted. " Cummings said though he remains a part of the process, the hard work is being done by those closest to the problem. " It ' s a student project and a student committee .hkI the students really do most of the work. " he said. Brouckaert. who has been an influential siutlent ha ' ing wriiien the legislation behind the smoking ban and been attached to the green fund bill, said she Ixcn humbled by the success of the food bank.

Yes. that was read eorreciiy. riie author Gre Kotis came uj) with this idea when standing in line for a pay toilet. I lie I Tieatre Department took a chance on this play with the title Iwing ofl ' -colnr and how the audiences might receive it. Llrinetown centers on a city that has fallen on hard limes due to the ' Dr)- Years. " when water was a premium resource. This caused the city to initiate the pay toilets to regulate use and water flow. Tliis caused the musical ' s conflict when the |X)or and destitute become unahle to pay the fees. There was the clichetl plot ol the less Fortunate citizens clashing with the [lowersthat Iwcame controlling and raising hatiirwjm lees and also a domineering legislature with a senator in its deep pockets. As a musical. Urinetown took inspiration lirom other musicals. There are noticeahle rif Is Ironi musicals such as West Side Story. Les Miserables, Big Kiver, Chicago and Fiddler on the Roof, to name a few. The story ' s hero Bobhy Strong was played by theatre major Christopher Miller. I he |)lay began when Strong ' s father. Old Man Strong playeil by Adam Brooks, junior theatre major, refused to pay the fee, I le instead relieved himself out in the open. The officers LocksttK ' k and Barrel were forced to punish Old Man Strong by sending him away to Urinelown. TIk- question repeatedly asked by the audience and 931 Senator Fipp (Justin Charles) second guesses his decision to cooperate with Caldwell B. Cladwei chanicters on stage: What is Urinetovvn? Urinciown was left lor open interpretation, but the place was revealed towards the ending. There was another cliched storyline when Bobby lell ior a new girl in the city, Hope Cladwell. played by CayWy Smith, The catch to this new romance? Hope is the daughter of Cladwell B. Cladwell, the boss of Urine Good Company which controls the pay toilets and regulates the fees. The romance became a forbidden love, similar to Uomco and Juliet, as Hope was torn between siding with her flesh and blood or the man she has fallen for. 94 This love encountered a monkey wrench when Strong led his friends on a rebellious uprising against the one percenters of the city. In the climax of Act One, liobby was forced to kidnap Hope to their ' secret hideout ' as a bartering chip against her father. Bobby ' s efforts were fruitless in the end. He was eventually caught and sent to his fate in Urinetown. The dreaded place was revealed to be the rooftop of Llrine Good Company where the arrested were pushed off. Throughout the play there were moments where the characters froze onstage and Officer Lockstock. who is the narrator, broke down the fourth wall along with a little girl named Little Sally, lliey talked tn the auilience and made fun of Llrinetown. These interactions poked fun at not only the production (Little Sally referencing how Llrinetown is a horrible name for a show), but musicals as a whole. It was hinted that the play was not a typical happy musical, with everything leading to the contrary until the final scene. After Bobby ' s death. Hope became the leader of the rebels. She turned on her father and eventually sent him to Llrinetown. Hope took over the company with good intentions in mind. But this led to horrible results and she endangered the city even more than when her father took over. The foreshadowed unhappy ending proved true as the musical concludes. Llrinetown did not have the ilattering. family-friendly environment, but audiences filled Fulton Chapel on opening night and stayed with the musical through the two hour performance. V VOLUNTEER FIRE FIGHTERS OF OLE MISS 9 71 ians from danger can all he part of a nor- day for ihe volunteer firemen of Oxford. n ovan Williamson, a junior criminal justice eland security major, heard about being unteer firefighter from his friends and |ted to see what it was all about. The Fort th, Texas native decided to become a nteer firefighter because it was fun, fast paced and most importantly, he wanted to help people. " I respond to any type of fire in the county, or any car wrecks, " says Williamson. " We either use offensive or defensive fire attacks depend- ing on what the conditions are. Sometimes we do search and rescue, like when the tornado came through Oxford two years ago. " The volunteer firefighters extinguish commer- cial fires, but more often put out residential fires. The volunteers carry walkie-talkies like all firemen do. " Our walkie-talkie is our pager, " Donovan explains. " Dispatch will receive a call and then give us a location of where the fire is and we will respond. " Donovan says he tries to keep his walkie-talkie discrete, but it is sometimes hard in a class- room or at the Malco Theater. " Tf I am in class I wait until the end and then respond to the call, " Donovan says. " If I ' m doing anything aside from class I respond im- mediately even if I ' m sleeping. " The training program that ihe volunteer firefighters have to undergo is both extensive and lengthy. The volunteers must go through an 8o-hour course, where the students meet three days a week. Tuesday and Thursday are lecture days in a classroom. Then on Saturday, the students practice the skills they ' ve learned in the classroom, " The difference between volunteer and paid firefighters is obviously the pay. " Williamson said. " Our training is a little less intense; the paid firemen ' s course goes more in-depth than ours does. The volunteer guys still have to go to the academy for the final test, though. " Donovan asserts he would like to stay a volun- teer as long as he can and would somehow like to work it into his career. Junior criminal justice major Giancarlo Romani always had firefighting in the back of his mind. He even visited a friend who is a firefighter in his hometown of Rockville, Md.. to see what it was all about. Romani did not really consider firefighting until he met Williamson who convinced him that he would be able to balance schoolwork and firelighting. Romani says his favorite thing about being a volunteer firefighter is " getting to go inside on a structure fire and using all the skills i learned througli my certification. ' " I want to be a volunteer firefighter as long as possible " Romani says, " and I have considered making it a career, but just am not sure yet. " Joseph Hamrick, a sophomore history educa- tion major and an Amarillo. Texas native, heard about volunteering as an Oxford firefighter from his two roommates, Wil- liamson and Romani. " They ' re both part of the olunieer firefighter, so hanging out with them all last year got me really intrigued and interested. " Hamrick said his two roommates talked him into it. They even let him go to a couple of fires with them. " I had to stay in the truck, but it looked really cool and important, and I wanted to be a part o[ that. " says I Limrick. Although Joseph just recently signed up to start training to he an Oxford volunteer fire- fighter, he says he is really excited for what is ahead.

As a com- munity program intern, he helped facilitate teen proorams for children all over New York City His responsibilities included working behind the scenes and helping to organize the logistics of the teen programs. At the museum, he scheduled tourgroups and explained the exhibitions to the visitors. Stanford feels that the program gave him more than scholastic experience.

PUPPYlove The hardest part of going to college is leaving behind your best friends, more commonly known as pets. But leaving home does not mean you have to leave furry friends behind! Junior Rachel Biackwell grew u]) with a dog- trainer as a father, so taking care of animals was in her blood. In Oxford, she fosters puppies for the Lafayette Humane Society. " The Humane Society does an amazing job. The employees are incredibly kind and helpful and care about every single one of their animals. " Blackwell cares about the animals too, claiming that letting them go to their permanent homes is always happy, but heartbreaking to see them go as well. " ]t sounds cheesy but I take puppies into my home and promise them that their worst days arc behind them. It breaks my heart to think about what some ol my loster puppies have experienced before they were brought to the shelter. " Blackwell says. Fostering involves potty training, teaching puppies not to bite, and getting them used to walking on a leash. Blackwell is in charge of the puppies for no more than a few weeks before they get adopted into families. As of October, she ' s adopted out seven puppies. " I use Facebook to help the animals find a home, " Blackwell says. " I post their pictures in groups and that helps them get adopted pretty quickly. It ' s hard to say no to their faces. " The I lumane Society allows fostering for full- grown dogs, kittens and cats as well. Fostering allows students to test run having a pet of their own while helping the I lumane Society. II your house does not allow pets, or your schedule is too busy to take care of one full-time, there are other options. The t lumane Society needs volunteers to play with the animals and take them on walks. Students can volunteer as olten or as little as they would like. 1 here are on-campus ways to help animals as well. The Feral University Rebel Rescuers, also known as FllRR. are always looking for memiK ' rs to help take care of the feral cats that live on campus. FLIRR Presitlcnt and Biology major Charlie Pritchard says. " Joining FLIRR opened my eyes to this sort of secret world that I wasn ' t aware of before. Before I joined FLIRR. I didn ' t even know there were cats on campus, hut now I know where they all live and am actively involved in their well-being. Being a life-long cat lover and living in a no pets allowed dorm. FLIRR allows me to channel my love of cats into a great service for the cats and the university. " Students may often run across a cat sunning itself behind campus housing, or scurrying across a parking lot at night. FLIRR captures these cats and takes them to the vet to get spayed or neutered. I hey also get all of their necessary shots to keep not only the cats safe, but students ns well. Once they have returned from the vet, they are allowed to continue living on campus. FLIRR provides food for the cats, and often volunteers spend time petting them as well. FLIRR was started by Lisa I lariman in April of 2002 in order to stop feral cats on campus from being euthanized, Though there are many stray cats on campus, volunteers do not have to spend ail ilieir free time caring for the cats. There are many different ways to help. FURR Co-advisor Casey Stauber lists the ways: " Some people feed the cats at the various stations. Others help trap and drive the animals to the vet lor spaying or neutering. Some volunteers are involved with fundraising since we always need money for food and traps, and a few do everything. " Leaving |iets behind can bediflicidt. but there are more than enough animals in O.vford that can help soothe the pain. I ' rom adopting a new forever friend, to making time to play, to just providing a little food. Oxforti provides many ways to help animals.

For those who partake in activities ' ovided by Olc Miss Outdoors, this statement isn ' t a mere cliche but a reality. Ole Miss Outdoors is a campus organization offered through the Department of Recreation where the term " adventure " is taken seriously. Ole Miss Outdoors, or OMOD for short, exposes students to the Great Outdoors. Its mission emphasizes adventure and promotes environmental awareness, and most importantly a whole lot of fun with a variety of exciting outdoors activities. Each semester, OMOD offers several reasonably priced adventure trips for students, ranging from a day at the Oxford rock-climbing clinic to a three- day white water rafting trip on the waters on the Tennessee Ocoee River. Other trips include hiking at DeSoto State Park, kayaking in North Alabama, hang gliding on Lookout Mountain in Georgia and sailing on Sardis Lake. This spring break. OMOD proves there are no limitations for this organization. For eight days. OMOD members and students leave Mississippi and the U.S. all together for a dog sledding trip in the snowy terrain of Algonquin Provincial Park. Canada. Elementary education major. Mary Grace Jimenez, has participated in Ole Miss Outdoors trips since her freshman year. Now a junior. Jimenez works in the OMOD office and is a trip leader. She typically leads waterfall hiking trips and caving expeditions in Chatanooga. Tenn. " I got involved with OMOD because of the fun, outgoing people involved, and it ' s pretty amazing to get paid to go hiking! " she said. Jimenez says many foreign exchange students get involved with OMOD as a way to get away from Oie Miss for the weekend. Most of them don ' t h;ive cars, so OMOD provides them a means for transportaliun and the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. " OMOD is such a great community for mc. " she said. " I haven ' t just had the opportunity to go on awesome, crazy trips, but I ' ve had the opportunity to make life long friends. " Ole Miss Outdoors is for everyone. It doesn ' t matter if you ' re not the outdoorsy type or don ' t have an athletic bone in your body (like mc). all students are encouraged to participate. It ' s a great opportunity to make new friends, try something new and learn survival and camping skills, like on the overnight hiking trips. Junior communications sciences and disorder major, Meredith Wooley attended a caving and spelunking trip in Chattanooga her sophomore year. For this particular trip. Wooley was required to have a wilderness and first responder ' s certification. Wooley loved her experience, and said it was nice to get away from everything for a weekend and get to know new people. However, when she first entered the cave, she was afraid of getting claustrophobic. " Once I got in there I think my sur ' ival instinct kicked in. " she said. " I just kept crawling and squeezing through the spaces. At one point, we crawled through a tunnel called the birth canal, so you can imagine how small it was! " Aside from adventure trips and outdoor activities, OMOD offers rental tents and other gear for anyone interested in going on a hiking or camping trip with friends. The OMOD office is located downstairs in the Turner Center, where a complete list and schedule of trips and clinics can be found. So, if you ' re seeking the thrill of an adventure, an adrenaline junkie, or just want to get out of Oxford for the weekend, definitely hit up Ole Miss Outdoors. 51 (Top) Ttey Warnock and Stacy Wolff work to ligfit a luminana in fionl of the Lyceum for Ole Miss Relay for Life.

Tliey may disagree on policy but they share a strong devotion to the future of not only the state, but the country as well. Republican Huffman is exceptionally well organized. He chooses every word carefully, knowing that in the world of politics meaning what you say isn ' t the same as saying what you mean. Tliis careful word crafting more than likely stems from his involvement with politics since the fourth grade. Huffman said he acted as a campaign manager for a friend running for class president and had a taste for it ever since. The senior public policy major didn ' t stop with his grade school friend. At 1 9. he was elected to the school board for Houston Separate School District, becoming the state of Mississippi ' s youngest school board member. He is currently on the Houston Separate District Board of Trustees, and serves as the chainnan lor the Chickasaw County Republican Party. Democrat jaishankar on the other hand is a fast talker. She is hard to keep up with, u hether she is spouting statistics off the top of her head, or reminiscing about high school. She has an energy about her that keeps the listener engaged. This penchant for a fast-paced discussion has its roots in Jaishankar ' s past as a member of her high school debate team; a club she joined her freshman year at St Andrew ' s Episcopal school in Jackson, " I was a super nerd and had no life but that is kind of when I got involved in politics. " she said. Jaishankar, an international studies majoi brought her passion for politics with her as she packed her car and headed to Ole Miss in the fall of 20 1 o. She is the Vice President of the mock trial team, a member of the Amnesty International Club and is also a member of the Ole Miss College Democrats. Huffman and Jaishankar may disagree on the candidates, but they do have somewhat similar views on the future ot the Democratic and Republican parties. Huffman, who considers himself a Republican, said that his reason for voting for a Republican candidate wasn t because he bleeds the color of his party affiliation. He said, " Party affiliation does not encompass the entire beliefs of every member but yet defines a set of parameters that one can feel free to balance between. " " I voted For Mitt Romney not out of hatred or bigoti-y of my president. I voted for Mitt Romney because I felt that his idea of government ' s role, purpose, and policy proposals were a better match I TALE OF TWO STUDENTS k) inv worldview. Did 1 agree with ivcrything Mitt Romncy s;iid or vlclended? NO. I even disagree at iinics with the Republican Party, " ! luffmansaid. laishankar said she voted tor Obama lor his positions on social issues and loreign policy. " I like Obama ' s stance on gay marriage lor example. I really liked his foreign |)olicy decisions. I don ' t necessarily .igree with most of the fast and the turious stuff but I like that we are pulling out of .Afghanistan, that we ;iren ' t being too hard on Iran, and were trying not to cut ties to Israel. " she said. Health care was a major deciding factor for Jaishankar. " This is going to be an unpopular opinion but I think the Affordable Care Act was a really great idea, " she said. " I come from a family with preexisting conditions, my dad is diabetic my mom has high cholesterol, my boyfriend has Crohn ' s disease so that is just really close home to me. " ror Huffman and Jaishankar. voting ill this year ' s election wasn ' t enough, lioth decided to play an active roll in politics. J-iishankar started out by attending •1 couple ol campaign fundraisers for Brad Morris, the Democrat running for District i in the House of Representatives. She spent two months working as a volunteer before her friend David McDowell, an Ole Miss alumnus and Morris ' s campaign manager, offered her the job as Morris ' administrative assistant. It turned out working on a campaign was work. Hard work. " I took in donations, tracked where they came from and managed his schedule. I organized volunteers. Mostly I just made sure nothing fell through the cracks, which is surprisingly difficult. I didn ' t expect it to be nearly as stressful as ii was. " she said. Huffman, who had experience with past campaigns saw working for Nunnulce. the Republican incumbent, as another opportunity to act involved with politics on a local level. He represented Nunnulee as the volunteer coordinator for Chickasaw County. Like Jaishankar, he also had to deal with the stress of campaign work while keeping up with his studies, which for most students, is more than enough pressure to deal with. " I ensured that people were aware ol his platform, materials were distributed throughout the area, and that the campaign was regularly informed of developments in Chickasaw County. " he said. If the Ole Miss campus can in any way be considered a microcosm of America then HuRman and Jaishankar represent the future where the two parties are heading. Jaishankar said. " Chances are the younger generation is going to be a lot more liberal than the older generation. I felt overall the Republican platform was more conservative than it needed to be. " Huffman agrees with Jaishankar to an extent. He believes while the Republican Party will change, it won ' t disappear. " There is no doubt that both parties will have to more prominently define their stance in terms of social, economic, etc. policies. ITierc is no doubt that the Republican Party will have to adapt and change its stance on social issues primarily but that is not to say that the Democratic Party will not have to make amends itself.

Senior biology major. Kyle Landers taught himself how to skate when he was still a child. He started out on a Birdhouse shortboard, or traditional skateboard, but for the past four years Kyle has been longboarding to his classes on campus. " It ' s way easier to get around on campus. You don ' t have to worry about parking. " Kyle said. " If I do drive it takes me three minutes to get from the parking lot all the way on to campus to my classroom. " Kvie said he used to ride his longboard to the Square when he lived nearby, but ad- mits that wasn ' t his best idea, even though he ' s never been seriously injured doing it. " Yeah, it ' s not a great idea after drinking, I ' ve busted ass a few times doing that, " he said with a smile. " I wouldn ' t recommend that. " Kyle ' s favorite place to skate is the hill from the Circle all the way to Coulter I lall. " I hit it every day. " Kyle said. " It ' s a long, solid ride, two minutes of no pushing. " Kyle ' s brother, freshman criminal justice major, John Landers, also loves to longboard. His first board was actually his brother ' s old Birdhouse, and he. like his brother, now rides a longboard. John started out on a shortboard trying to do tricks but soon switched to longboarding. " It ' s just more fun. " John said. " Longboards are more about going fast, cruising around and going where you feel, rather than trying to look cool doing it. " John said that longboarding is just more fun than any other mode of transportation he ' s tried and that there ' s just something special about cruising down a hill on a longboard. " It ' s just awesome, you ' re going faster than anyone else, " John said. " I usually get a weird feeling kind of in my chest like, ' What if 1 fall? What if I don ' t fall? ' but then it goes away and I just roll with it. " John ' s only skateboarding injury came when he lived in Calif., where he started long boarding. He picked up a stress fracture on his left ankle from skating too much. " I would go out pretty much every day. " John said. " It was just my ankle couldn ' t take itandsolgot this thing called a greenstick fracture. " The small fracture left him in a boot and crutches for si. months while he recovered. John hasn ' t had an injury since but he remembers a recent run in with danger he had on his way back to his dorm room alter skating arnurul a parked car. " I just passed that car and there was a giant SLIV, " he said. " I couldn ' t stop because I had just popped the curb and she slammed right into my right hip. " John saiil he was lucky and reacted fast by putting liis hands on the hood and ])ushing himsell up and away from the car. " I I.inded ii perlecily and I don ' t know how. " he said. Clara IJuller is no stranger to wiping out on a longboard. The sophomore elementary education major has had her fair share of spills since she started skating with her friends two years ago in her hometown of IVachtree City, (la. " I ' ve scraped up my hotly prctiy bad but nothing major. " Butler said. She saiti she is more concerned about scarring her Sector ; longboard than anything. " I get really upset when I mess it up. like if it gets a little scratch on it I get really mad. " Butler said. Hutler recommends that anyone who wants to get into skateboarding take it slow at first. She said she ' s still iffy about going down the bigger hills but longboarding is more fun than regular skateboarding. " It ' s like surfing with wheels under it, " she said.

How did they get such awesome jobs? STORY MADISEN THEOBALD PHOTOS DRFW CARTER 114 ' 1 Manly (left) pours drinks at the Corner bar. Manly says learning time management was key for tier, especially because working nigtits at ther bar cuts into her study time. Mmdy WiUiams (right), who works at ■ :rs Blues House Bar, recalls some of the funniest moments at the bar. She has seen anything from patrons fatting asleep at the bar to students getting in fights with adults- Many of the student bartenders know the bar owners, other bartenders in the Square, are from the same hometown or even had become drunken " friends " at some point. TTie Oxford Square provides many of these bartending jobs to students. The most commonly known bars are The Comer, Roosters Blues House. The Levee, and The Library. These bars are a fast-pace atmosphere away from the dorms or apartments on the weekend, never failing to produce a fun and thrilling fist-pumping weekend. And as a bartender on the job, it provides a lot more room for eye- popping visuals and hilarious stories. Student bartender Mindy Williams of Roosters Blues House Bar laughs. " The usual drunk underage guy falling asleep on the bar or a college kid beating up an elder guy would be some of the most interesting things I ' ve seen working at the bar. " Or on the other side of the eventful Square, you can find at the Library Sports Bar. 22-year-old senior Shannon Power. Power shares a story of her first day bartending when the Library held the Kappa .Alpha Order ' s Hayseed spring party which packed the entire bar. " Well in the mist of it all, the garage door came up unexpectedly and came down on me and the other bartender. " Power says, " The drunken frat boys jumjjed up on the bar and held it up to save the party and their access to drinks. " The garage door smoked and they had to call for help; the bartenders from downstairs saved the day. and Power ' s first day remained the " most memorable thing since. " Besides the hilarious stories the student bartenders witnessed, they also get a lot of great freebies and benefits. At Roosters, all employees get a discount on food and drinks; also they do not have to pay cover. At the Levee Bar, the employees get discount on food and drinks. Seeing their teachers at the bar is one of the most awkward things for most of the student bartenders on campus. Williams dishes. " My old sociology teacher is a regular at our bar (Roosters) At first, it was a little awkward because he remembered me as ' the girl who was always late ' but after a while it was pretty common to see him. " The same happened to Shannon Powers of the Library Sports Bar. " 1 served an old math teacher from freshman year. I couldn ' t remetnber where I knew him from so I asked him. and he told me. " Powers says. Tlie job always brings the bartenders fun but they also know that it limits their own study time, so they have 10 be organized and prioritized. Although the teachers visited them at bars and had a grant! old time with them, those teachers still don ' t hold off on the schoolwork. The student bartenders have crazy schedules ranging from four nights a week to all seven days a week, Sometimes they even have to work doubles on weekdays. " Just the fad that you work laie nights cuts into your night-time studying. This is where time management comes into to play. Now 1 have to plan out and take full ol advantages of any spare time that I have to study to stay on top of my grades, " says Gregory Manly, of the Corner JJar. Powers says. " I love my job.

(ngtit) Qle Miss student Shaun Geter talks with fellow students during ttie student protest against Ifie new smoking ban on campus On the Friday afternoon of September 7, students organized a gathering at the Grove Stage protesting the newly ASB-approved campus-wide smoking ban. But the turnout was different than what one would expect. There was not a mass of fraternity boys boisterously chain-smoking cigars under the beautiful oak trees. There was no action by UPD. Some of the protestors did not smoke at all. There were only about 30 students and professors alike standing near the Grove Stage, some smoking cigarettes and some puffed cigars. All cigarette butts were put into designated bins to prevent littering. Certain members of the student group were respectfully answering questions from the news media, while others were explaining the option to sign their petition asking for the return of designated smoking areas on campus. Senior pharmacy major Jordan Kelley explained why she participated in the smoking protest: " I understand that there ' s a fine line between the freedom to smoke and the freedom to breathe fresh air.. .but it ' s our choice to smoke. Give us a section to smoke in and we ' ll smoke Graduate student John Lindbeck. a non-smoker, agrees with the protest. " A complete smoking ban just [proliiliits] people who work here all day and who live here...trom being able to smoke in any reasonable way without leaving campus. That seems counter-productive and really ritliculous because it ' s just not going to work, " he said. The protesters argued that the university ' s previous smoking areas weren ' t clearly marked, which caused confusion. The student protesters were pro-en lorceinenl of smoking areas, hut seemed to be appalletl by the new law allowing students to give their peers warning cards if seen smoking anywhere on camjius which will turn into a $25 fine the following semester.

In terms of advertising to familiarize the public about Thacker Mountain Radio, intern Ashley Locke, a junior English major, says. " We were looking for ways to e.xpand our presence, and social media seemed like the perfect outlet. " Locke, responsible for updating the Tumblr and Instagram according to the current week ' s agenda, reveals a hardship, " I have witnessed how difficult it is to fill our spots every week, especially if someone cancels last minute and we have to hnd a replacement as quickly as possible. If this hap- pens, the other interns and I have to immediately update the social media sites to keep the viewers informed, " Without a doubt, creating a free performance for a full house requires time and support, mainly be- cause the one-shot basis that this live radio show revolves around requires minimal mistakes. I ' ogether. the interns and main directors produce an hour-long show, attracting individuals from a wide variety of locations. While discussing the preparations that the show entails, Mary B. Sellers, a senior in charge of Thacker ' s Facebook page, mentions her main inspiration. " I admire our producer. Kathryn McGavv. Not only does she produce the show, but she does it with a sense of directness while still remaining friendly and in control. " Just this past October. Thacker celebrated its i 5 ' ' ' anniversary of volunteers coming together to pro duce a show, of individuals searching Olf Square Books for a vacant wooden seat, and of musicians and authors performing their work to around 200 mesmerized people. According to Neal McMillin, operator of the Twitter handle, " Everybody loves the music part of the performance, but what makes people show up and hold it dear is the literary aspect, . ' fter listening to the authors read their work and tell their stories the way they were meant to he told, you realize that they are just normal individuals. ' Surely, the authors ' entrancing readings com- bined with the heart and soul tunes ol the musi- cians allows the audience to feel a sense of unison with the performers, mainly because they make it their objective to interact with the crowds, LInfortunately, one strong connection was broken on October 3, when Duff Dorrough. a member of the Yalobushwackers, Thacker ' s house band, passed away. To put this loss into perspective. Mary B. Seller shares, " Once he got sick, it was a noticeable absence. He definitely brought life to the show He was the icon and face of Thacker. " Throuuh high pitches and low notes. Fhacker Mountain Radio will forevermore remember the leoendary Duff Dorrough. and as Ashley Locke puts it.

The song emphasized Ole Miss wide receiver Donte Moncrief who went on to prove himself against Mississippi State, tying the school record with three touchdowns and catching seven balls for 1 73 yards. " We wanted to do the song kind of as something that could get people pumped up for Ole Miss Football and try to show the players we supported them, " Pruett said. The stars aligned and now we are the ' Feed Moncrief guys. " The Feed Moncrief slogan became popular when Davis Abraham and Emmett Manning, friends ol Pruett, decided to make t-shirts with the slogan on them for the football game with University of Texas, However, they received an email hom the National Collegiate Athletic Association stating that it was illegal to sell shirts for profit without approval and the momentum was shot down. " It was Blake who had the idea to make it into a song to perpetuate the phrase. " Haadsma said. Pruett wanted to take a different approach, making it more like the song " Ice Cream Paint Job. " " Patrick had the idea to do more of a stadium dance song, which as we see now, was smart! " Pruett said. Three days before the Egg Bowl, " Feed Moncrief " went viral and had the Ole Miss community talking. " The song had some traction from people like Coach Freeze tweeting about it. " Haadsma said.

Ole Miss is always full of fun activities and entertainment to get the college students involved. There are hundreds of committees, clubs and organizations on campus that make a big impact on the Ole Miss community - and one of the most recognized is the Student Programming Board. The Student Programming Board does over i 2 5 events every year. They put on the Welcome Week concert, have Movies in the Grove in which they play movies that are not even released on DVD yet. Miss University pageant. Parade of Beauties pageant, Union Unplugged, A Grand Ole Christmas and Ole Miss Idol. These are just some of the many events that they construct for the student body, The Student Programming Board also produces a spring concert every year. One of the main buzzes of the 20 i 2-20 i 3 school year was the Dierks Bentley concert in the Grove during Welcome Week. Country artist Dierks Bentley approached the Ole Miss Student Programing Board because he was doing a three- town college campus tour. Bentley had played in Oxford belore and wanted to come back for a show because he loved the fan attention that he received from the Ole Miss students. Freshman Molly Johnston said her favorite even! presented this year by Ole Miss was the Dierks Bentlev concert. " The Dierks Bentley concert was by far my favorite event. " Johnston said. " I actually met all my best friends that night without even knowing it. And the best part was that it was free. The Dierks concert brought students of all ages at the university together with the aid of country music. It was a great ice breaker for the incoming freshman! " Welcome Week presented by the SPB made a great impact on the new freshmen community. The SPB not only got Dierks Bentley to play in the Grove, but also set up the Campus and Student organization fair and the Union Unplugged where students had the opportunity to sing on a stage in the Union and show off their talents to other college students. They also showed a Movie in the Grove to attract Ireshmen to come together to hangout in the Grove, and lastly had a " Friday Funday. " where the SPB featured inflatables in the Union pla .a along with a rowdy mechanical bull. Another event thai not only attracts Ole Miss students but also inhabitants of the Oxford community is the Parade of Beauties at the Ford Center every February. The Parade ol Beauties is a beauty pageant including some of the prettiest female students at Ole Miss. Sororities and other women present themselves on stage and are judged on appearance and individual interviews. Only one is crowned Queen. This beautiful pageant brings in great revenue for the University and the SPB. Being on the Slutlenl Pro jraininin.. Buard is actually very easy and attainable if you enjoy planning and organizing events. Anyone can apply to he on the SPB Committee. The apjilications are open during the first weeks of the fall semester every year. The SPB has three different committees: Special Events. Pageants and lintertainment. After a year on the committee, you are cjualified to apply for the Executive Council, which consists of a Director, Associate Director, four Co-directors of Special Events, two Co-directors of Pageants and two Co-directors of Entertainment. After a year as Co-director, one may apply to be the Director or Associate Director. The current Director of the Student Programming Board is VVil Ycrger. a 22-ycar-old senior at the University of Mississip[)i. " I love planning and organizing events. While I have been on the Student Programming Board, I have made many great friendships with faculty and staff members as well as fellow students, " stated Yerger. I ie serves as the direct liaison for the board. Flc is in charge of the council as well as all the participants in SPB. The Student Programming Board is constantly changing and revam[3ing its events every year to stay fresh and on top of things, but one thing always holds true of the committee: They never fail to entertain the college community oi Ole Miss.

The Ole Miss intramurals programs offers .students an opportunity to play sports with their peers in a fun, yet competitive environment. The program offers traditional sports like (lag football, softball. and volleyball, as well as sports like Frisbee golf, battleship and rocketball. Battleship and Rocketball are two of the newest additions to intramural sports. Battleship involves two teams of four, each in a canoe, armed with a bucket and a shield trying to sink their opponents by filling their canoes with water. RoclTetball is a hybrid of kickball and softball where the batter has a choice of kicking the ball or hitting it with a softball bat. Besides playing sports, the Ole Miss intramural program offers students a chance to be employed by being a referee, sports assistant or team leader. Ellie Schmerler, a senior political science major, started out as a referee her sophomore year at Ole Miss and has worked her way to the status of team leader, which is a head student supervisor for intramurals. Schmerler started out refereeing flag football and outdoor soccer and admits it is not an easy job. She remembers a flag football game where she gained the respect of two fraternity teams, who were giving her a hard time. " They thought f had no idea what I was talking about but I actually did, " Schmerler said. " So it was fun giving them a little vvhip-back, kind of proving them wrong in a certain sense. " Schmerler was promoted to sports assistant at the end of her sophomore year, giving her more responsibility in the intramural community. Sports assistants do many things including first aid, helping solve disputes between play°ers and referees, keeping score, and evaluating referees. OVE OF THE GAME hmerler said that team leaders do everything that " jrts assistants do and more like checking players in id out of games, monitoring the games and keeping lice hours every week to deal with phone calls and lails about intramurals. ven though their duties change after promotion, hmerler said that everyone referees at least twice In ery sport. 1 1 just wouldn ' t make sense, it would be like pocrites telling other people how to referee if we in ' t referee ourselves, " Schmerlersaid. i:ven though her job can be stressful and tiring, Schmerler loves being a part of intramural sports and recommends that every student try to play some kind of sport. " I can ' t imagine doing any other job on campus, " Schmerler said. " I think it ' s a good way for kids to come out and play a sport and mingle with other kids. " Sports assistant and sophomore exercise science major, Emily Cockrum mirrors Schmerler ' s love of intramural Sports, whether she ' s refereeing or playing. " I just like being around the whole sports aspect, the competition, the skill, all of it. " Cocknam said. Cockrum grew up playing soccer and it remains her favorite sport to play and to referee. " I ' ve played it my whole life, so I ' m really confident with soccer, " she said. Cockrum said that she enjoys the competition but mainly uses tbe intramural sports as a way to get away for a while. " It ' s just the one thing that I can do that lean take my mind off of everything and focus on that, " she said. " It helps kind of calm me down when everything is stressful. " Cockrum ' s main goal is to see new faces in the intramural sports program. " Getting more people in is what I want to focus on. " she said with a laugh. " You don ' t have to be a superstar to play intramurals. Johnathan Rogers, a senior parks and recreation major, understands Cockrum ' s passion for sports. " From the age of six and on I was playing three to four sports a year. " Rogers said. Rogers is intramural chair for Beta LIpsilon Chi and has spent i o semesters playing intramural sports with his fraternity brothers. As chair, Rogers is responsible for planning the sports he and his brothers will play. " It ' s kind of hard not to go out there when you know that you ' re keeping all the people in your fraternity involved with it, " he said. The best memory Rogers has playing intramural sports is making it to the final four in softball. " It was amazing to see how the fraternity reacted to such a positive moment. " he said. His favorite sport to play is softball because that ' s the sport his fraternity brothers arc most passionate about. " When I get out on the softball field everyone is just pumped to play and it ' s hard not to love doing that.

The Great Wall of China? The Sydney Opera House? The Coliseum in Rome? These postcard attractions are not as untouchable as one might believe. The University of Mississippi offers an endless amount of study abroad programs that could land you in one of these picturesque destinations, and many more. Some study abroad programs last one semester and others last an entire year. Jay Nogami, junior public policy leadership and economics double major, is currently in his second semester studying abroad at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. Nogami believes that studying abroad is an opportunity that everyone should try to take advantage of. " Everyone who can study abroad should because it really is a great opportunity to travel and see the world before we get old and chained to a desk, " Nogami said in an online interview. Studying a foreign language? Many semester and summer abroad programs arc catered to students who are in the process of Icarnino a new language. Being immersed in a different culture native to the target language can be beneficial. Some say it is easier to learn a new language when you are forced to speak nothing else. Lila Agner, junior mechanical engineering major, is studying Korean as a foreign language in the fairly new program at the University of Mississippi. With hopes of becoming better acquainted with the language and culture, .Agner has future plans to study abroad in Busan. South Korea. " 1 did a lot of research about Busan, " said Agner. " It is the second largest city in South Korea and my language partner from last semester was from there. I would love to study abroad to see him again while hopefully getting a better grasp on the Of course, not all students are interested in foreign languages. Many students choose to study in other countries simply for the change of scenery and experience. The university is partnered with several universities that speak English as a native language, including Australia. " T chose Australia because an English language college was necessary so I could keep up with my studies, " Nogami said. " Plus it is heaps cooler than Europe because you get great weather, friendly people, and who doesn ' t want to go to the beach on Christmas Day? " When asked what is the most rewarding part of studying abroad, the breathtaking sights were not the number one answer. The most popular answer was meeting new people. Studying abroad gives you a chance to connect with people from all over the world and create connections that could last a lifetime. " The most rewarding part of studying abroad has been the broad range of people I ' ve met, " said Nogami. " Not only will I now have lifelong friends in Australia, but all around the world which gives me a sense of what brings us all together, and the barriers that kecjj us apart. " Not all students have an interest in studying abroad prior to taking the leap. Some are comfortable righl where they are, until an opportunity flntls them, laylor Bryan, sophomore English, psychology and sociology triple major, spent her first semester of university abroad. Bryan, a native ol ONJord, studied in Ihessaloniki, CIreece ior lour months. " I wasn ' t even going to go to college at first, but Ole Miss contacted me and asked me to try the freshman sttitly abroad program, " Bryan said. " I had never really even been out of Mississi|)|)i and it gave me a chance to find myself " Studying abroad can he costly, hut in the end it may be worth every penny. Some programs oiler scholarships to students who may need a little extra help. In addition to these scholarships, some programs also accept the scholarships and grants that students receive to study at the University of Mississippi. " The scholarship money and awards that 1 would receive to study at Ole Miss still applied, " said Bryan. " I basically got to study in Greece for free.

Tliere are several continents on Earth and the University of Mississippi is made up of several schools. It is these things that show that the University of Mississippi mirrors the Earth in many ways with over 20,000 students from all over the United States and the globe. Out-of-state students, especially those from non- southern states, may have a h ard time adjusting to the Mississippian way of life. While this might be true, the students who have the most difficulty are the international students. For some of them, this is their first time coming to the United States. Iwyson Costa, a junior pharmacy major from Teresina, Brazil, couldn ' t even locate Mississippi on a map before coming to America. " I was really worried about coming to Mississippi because I did not know anything about it, " said Costa. " In fact, I did not know much about America at all except what I saw in movies. " Some students warm up to the culture right away because it is not completely new. Jihye " Kristine " Lee, senior political science major from Seoul, South Korea, was brought to the United States when she was a little girl, but was sent back to South Korea only a few years later. " Our family moved to San Francisco when I was six years old, but I went straight to South Korea for boarding school after I graduated from middle school, " said Lee. While at home in South Korea, Lee wanted to find a university where she could experience first-hand the life of an American college student. Throuoh suggestions and research, she decided on Ole Miss. " I knew this would be the best fit for me, and a way to experience a traditional American university, " Lee said. " I have definitely seen and felt it myself through my experience so far. " It is no surprise that the LInited States has opportunities for jobs that other countries do not. According to Lee, the job market in South Korea is hierarchical with women and young adults havino the hardest time with employment. " Because of this, my dad really wanted me to come back to America to improve my English in order to get a job, " said Lee. " He always tells me to never, ever, think about settling in South Korea and to always widen my horizons beyond just Asia. " The language barrier can often be an obstacle, but there are several programs at Ole Miss dedicated to the success of international students. Amono these STORY Tr F THOMAS is the Global Ambassadors program. The progran pairs exchange students with native students, and the Intensive English program designed to help international students improve their English. " In the beginning it was very difficult to switch from Norwegian into English all the time, " said Sara Bydal Ness, senior education major from Foerde, Norway. " I was a little nervous but now i feels natural. " What makes the University of Mississippi so special when it comes to international students? Why not let them answer that question? " The people here are not that typical American that just love themselves, " said Ness. " They are really warm and genuine people that have welcomed us in the best way possible. " We pride ourselves on being one big family. We art one big melting pot. One Ole Miss. " I love that I am a Rebel even though I am an exchange student, " said Costa. " I am so glad to be part of this family.

The chapter was officially started in Spring of 2011. This chapter services both of the high schools in the area (the Oxford Chargers and the Lafayette Commodores). MoneyThinl has become a way for the students attending the University of l 1ississippi to give bacl( to the Lafayette and Oxford communities. The chapter has been very blessed to have grown so large in just the past year. Though the chapter started with eight mentors and six classrooms, we have grown to 11 classrooms and 23 dedicated mentors; and the program can only get better. At Ole Miss we strive to live by our University Creed: The University of Mississippi is a community of learning dedicated to nurturing excellence in intellectual inquiry and personal character in an open and diverse environment. As a voluntary member of this community: I believe in respect for the dignity of each person, I believe In fairness and civility, I believe In personal and professional Integrity, I believe In academic honesty. I believe In academic freedom, I believe In good stewardship of our resources, I pledge to uphold these values and encourage others to follow my example. And MoneyThinl is a perfect way for the Ole Miss students to put those beliefs into real practice. MONEY THINK Pictured: (From left): Will Scott. Victoria Williams, AJ Barrios. Austin Varber.

In a rare opportunity, they spoke with student journalists, Meredith ' s first on-campus interview in 50 years. Dressed in his red and blues, Meredith laid out his life and his goals, unveiling the truth of why he came to Ole Miss. Though many consider him a staple citizen in the civil rights movement, Meredith disagreed. " Frankly, I had never heard of the ' civil riohts movement, ' " Meredith said. " I had been nine years in the military, the last three years [before coming to Ole Miss] overseas. That wasn ' t part of my reality. " Instead, Meredith saw himself as " a servant of God on a specihc mission of God, " which ret|uired him to restore the power and glory to his Choctaw bloodline. The reason for the bloodlines ' end was rooted in arrogance and ' refusal to believe anybody was smarter than us, ' according to Meredith. Considering his circumstances, Meredith found the most effective way to achieve his family ' s dream of bringing back the power that once was, to put his foot in the door of higher education and learn from others, something his ancestors failed to do. " Our great shortcoming was our failure to appreciate and learn from others, " Meredith said. " If we were ever to become a real part of the Mississippi scene, we would have to know as much as other Mississippians. So that ' s how I got involved. " As history shows, Meredith was not a welcome member to the Ole Miss scene at lirst. In pictures appears a young, calm Meredith, shoulder leaning as if he had not a care in the world, amidst a sea of scornful faces. Pictures and history say one thing, but Meredith said another. PHOTO AUSTIN MCAFEE " I never saw one person here, not one, " Meredith said. " I wasn ' t concerned about what anybody did then It was pretty clear in my mind what Mississippi w.i and what it had been. In my view, anything that anybody did that was not what they should be doin was simply my failure to do my job. that it couldn ' l possibly be their fault, only my fault. " Though Meredith ' s initial mission started in conccr for his family, his mission continues. His concerns now lie with the public education system and the future of Mississippi ' s youth. " [The public education system in Mississippi] is almost a total disaster and everyone ' s still focusing u higher education. " Meredith said. " It may still be a problem but the real problem in Mississippi is from birth to age 1 8. And that ' s my present mission. " According to Meredith, the demise of Mississippi ' s public school system took fire in the late 1 960s. Within a few years, the number of black principals tliroughout the state dropped dramatically. Blacks jssotiated with the civil rights movement were lired and established new routes in bigger cities throughout the country. .■kcording to a 1003 United States census on educational attainment in the United States. 80 percent of blacks in the United States 25 years and over graduated high school. It was deliberately destroyed and it has not been built back, " Meredith said. " Mississippi is suttcring already and if we don ' t change it. we are really going to be in bad shape. I ' m not opposed to nothing that happened 50 years ago, but my mission from Cod now is to get the black people of Mississippi to do for themselves all that they can do to improve their lives. His plan to build the public education system oegii s with the church. THAT WAS THEN THIS IS NOW The church is the starting point, an extended family, and inHuential to little ones. Church members. Meredith believed, are responsible for seeing their children succeed. He said it is important for the church and community to take part in building a child ' s foundation. Establishing a sense of community will bring about more educated citizens. " Everybody needs to know each other in their communities and that doesn ' t happen anymore, " Eastland said, who is over Eastland Law Offices in Greenwood and O.xford. " It doesn ' t but it has to, " Meredith chimed in. " We ' re already in very serious trouble. " After the same goal. Eastland and Meredith identified with Frederick Douglass ' ide,i that the key to freedom is education. " We opened the doors of higher education but nobody ' s going to be able to take advantage of it with all these children that arc chained in poverty - STORY KRISTEN STEPHENS unless we do something about the public school system, " Eastland said. " It ' s everybody ' s responsibility to teach [die youllil the values so they will have the discipline and desire to learn. We haven ' t completed the journey. " Eastland continual that the issue should not just be a concern for liberals or conservatives, blacks or whiles, rich or poor, but shoulil be something the entire country lakes attention to. " We ' re all in it together, " Eastland saitl. " We ' re starting to sec encouraging seeds ol thai and that people arc willing to roll up their sleeves and do it. " The country should focus on " blending passions and reasons " of all people according to Eastland and learn to stand up and engage the young people. I le said ihe youngest generation has to pilch in. Meredith realized he played .111 imporlaiil part 50 years ago but fell his mission continues to today ' s youth and ensuring they would be able to " take advantage of going to a place like ( lie Miss. " according to Eastland. •Thai ' s why he has a tendency to not focus on what he did 50 years ago, " Eastland said, " I le wants to focus on the future. ' " It ' s amazing.

" 183 INTEGRATION , Miss is seen as having one of the most luiilul college campuses in the country. Like rything in this world it was not always like nne time our campus was painted red, not ih the dresses and suits of Rebel fans, but with xxlshed. 1 October i , 1 962, James Howard Meredith aght hard to become the first African- ncrican student to enroll at the university. ' L ' spite multiple efforts by former governor Ross liarnett to keep him avvav. Meredith was not Jeterred. The diversity the school possesses is in a large part due to this one man. The events ' f 1962 were a turning point for the LIniversity of ■lississippi; we must never forget. Now, 50 years later, we celebrate the good fortune and opportunities that have come from ' liat single victory. In a series of events entitled, " 50 Years of Integration, " students, faculty, alumni and other visitors joined together to show their appreciation. The celebration began on Sunday, September o, with an extended prayer service held at the Hord Center. Originally a walk of remembrance liad been scheduled to open the event, but poor weather conditions forced a cancellation. Chancellor Dan Jones addressed the crowd •It 6:30 pm that Sunday night. " It is very meaningful for me to personally walk this path over the next few days as we celebrate the wonderful diversity of our campus now. Not just Mr, I iarry Belalonte. a well-known American celebrating, but commemorating those sad events songwriter, actor and social activist from the civil that forced that integration fifty years ago. " rights era. Even after half a century, those who were involved and present during that fight are still haunted by those events. Several religious leaders were invited to speak and initiate prayer. Among those invited were Bishop Duncan M. Cray Jr. of St. Peters Episcopal Church and his son Bishoji Duncan Gray IH. The bishop spoke to the hearts of the audience with his anecdotes of his involvement against the efforts of Gov. Barnett. " That night does not bring back good memoric for me; however. I had been involved with many organizations for racial reconciliation. That night was the most violent night I had ever seen. " Several other guests also took the podium that night, and a recited prayer followed each speech. The audience sat with eyes closed and heads bowed while each prayer was spoken aloud. While the lighting may have been poor for the photographers, it was perfect for the flickering of the electronic candles that had been distributed toward the beginning of the ceremony. In closing, the crowd stood together, some for the first time since 1962, and sang the hymn, " Lift Every Voice and Sing. " The University of Mississippi was more than pleased to welcome closing keynote speaker Chancellor Dan Jones introduced Mr. lielafonte at 6 p.m. on Monday, October 1, 2012 and the crowd fell silent as he began his recollection of that time period. " We arc here to celebrate a bit of history that transformed not only this institution, hut changed the way Mississippi traditionally did business. " Belafonte efForilessIy held the attention of the audience while placing a picture into the mind of those who were not alive during thiit time and helping those ' cierans who had come back to pay tribute to Mcretlith and their alma mater, relive those events along with him. Belafonte could not have articulated ii any better when he said. " People say civil rights is past or today is a different day. and I am saddened hv that conclusion. Nothing could be further from the truth. " So as we all live our day-lo day lives, we must keep in mind that there are always obstacles that need to he overcome. But do not fret, for Meredith showed us that it only takes one person with ambition to start something thai will last. And it is not just the fresh cut lawn and architecture that makes our campus beautiful, but the scars thai give it historv and show that we have fought hard for something more than just a Grove spot during football games. STORY STEFF THOMAS FIFTY YEARS LATER i INTEGRATION PHOTO ALEX EDWARDS 187 1 INTEGRATION u n r A SOLDIER ' S STORY ! L-nry Gallagher was a 23-year-old 2 ' " ' lieutenant in the Army According to Gallagher, it was two coinplctt-lv tiifieretu classes :■ hen the call came in for what he thought at the time was only a staring at each other. I Jis soldiers ilidn ' i have cars, only hus tokens, tiaining exercise. But Gallagher and his troops were headed to the and they certainly didn ' t wear khakis. Gallagher said that the well small town of Oxford, Miss. lor what would hecome one of the most dressed whites hothered him and his troops more than it seemed to Mijnificant events in the school ' s history. bother Meredith. i:i Gallagher ' s book. James Meredith and the Ole Miss Riot: A Suldier ' s Story, Fort Dix, New Jersey was where Gallagher ' s I ' lurney began. He said that he and his troops loaded up their jeeps iind trucks with their gear antl waited for an umpire to grade them " n their response. An umpire never came and he and his soldiers were never graded. Instead, they loaded their gear on a plane Iieaded for the Memphis Air Force base. Ciallagher said that it was not until halfway through the flight that he learned where his platoon was headed and the reason for their deployment. They were headed for the campus of Ole Miss, where ■I riot had broken out in response to the first African-American •■tudent. James Meredith, being admitted to the university. After the riot was put down. Gallagher expected to go home, but he was charged with the task of protecting James Meredith from would be attackers. Gallagher remembers the difference in his fellow soldiers and the students on campus who heckled Meredith. " I noticed they were well-dressed whites, khakis and Madras shirts, driving around on campus in Thunderbirds, " he said. " My troops were from the lower middle class, draftees. Iliey ' d be working at the factories and the mills in the Northeast if they weren ' t in the army. Even though he was head of Meredith ' s security detail, Gallagher admits they were never close, but he remembers a moment when Meredith did speak to him, Gallagher was sitting and reading one of the many death threat letters that Meredith received, and when he found one that threatened Meredith ' s family he turned to him out of concern. " I looked at him antl saiil, ' 1 la e you read this. James? ' and he looked at me and said. ' Lieutenant, I ' m late lor my Spanish class. ' " Gallagher said. " Well there ' s a sense of the courage of this man. " " Stripped down it was just pure, unadulterated courage, " Gallagher said in his book, describing Meredirh as the most courageous man he ever met. Gook Chair and associate professor of journalism. Curtis Wilkie. was a student at Ole Miss during the riot antl thinks that Gallagher ' s book is accurate and a good reati, " It ' s got a lot of information not contained in all the other books that have written about the integration of Ole Miss because it ' s from his perspective of a military guy. " Wilkie says that he has tried to read as many books on the subject as he could and Gallagher ' s book is something special. " It ' s a totally different book. " he says. " That ' s why I enjoyed it. " Kathleen Wickham. associate professor of journalism and director of gratluate stuilies. knows Gallagher personally and agrees with Wilkie. Wickham believes Gallagher did a great job of putting his voice into the pages and that it is rare for an oral storyteller like Gallagher to begooti at writing also. " Because i had heard I lenry ' s story so much his voice was in my head antl his ' oice matched thai on the pages. " she says. " It was like i lenrv was sitting there next to me telling me some of these stories, which 1 had heard on several occasions. " Wickham thinks that it is very important for students to read books like CJalkigher ' s. She said that her students are aware of the crisis, and thai Meredith integrated the university but they tlon ' t know it. " Ihey tlon ' t know it in the sense where they can go out and walk the path and look at the pictures in the hallway of Farley and alworb it so it becomes real to them. " she said. " So this book would ake it cry I ■al. " Wickham said that she really enjoyed the book and [ilans to ihaiik Gallagher. " One of my tasks now that I ' ve finished the book is to write him antl say, ' Henry, good job.

Throughout this horrible situation, all three Marshals shared funny stories from their comrades, including teasing about snakes, the mountainous feas ' the starved men ate after that long night, Meredith, and even fears ol flyin. that came from men who had encountered much more dangerous situatioti " We were told that we were going to go out and practice loading the plane to see who would fit in where. Well, we did that, but when we got on the planes, the doors were closed, the engines started up, and we headed to Oxford. " said Garner, remembering the plan to get the frightened Marshal onto the plane. 1 he third U.S. Marshal that spoke at the panel was able to give an entirely different outlook on what was going on because of his race. " My remark is intended to educate you. inform you, and share with you what happened Irom a black Deputy Marshal ' s perspective. " said Bowden, who was not present during the actual riots, jusi on ihe detail afterwards. While he was down here, he encountered prejudice and racism, that at the time. Mississippi was famous for.

" I feel like this has been an important time in our univer- sity ' s history, " Dandridgc said. " Just Ix ' ing able to be a part of that was amazing. " Since this was the 50th anniversary of integration on Ole Miss ' campus Dandridge was able to have a relationship with James Meredith and his family, which is an experi- ence that she will cherish for the rest of her life. Even though Dandridge won the majority of the students ' votes, she encountered racism one night on the Square. A lew weeks after she was elected, a guy that she had never met lx:fore stopped her by yelling out racial slurs. I he man went even further saying that he was mad and the reason he did not want her to be ASB President was l ecause she was hlack. . sshe was going through the school ' s judicial process, Dandridge decided that she did not want this guy to be kicked out ul college because of one night ' s stupid mistake. ■ ' I wanted him to get to know me and learn more about diversity. " she said. Now they have gotten past the night on the Square and are friends. He went through diversity training and made a public apology through l " he Daily Mississippian. " It ' s just a bad situation that started out really bad and has turned into something really special, " Dandridge said. 196 Unlonunaiely. this was not the only racial situation that she had to deal with. Tlie incident on election night required Dandridge to step up and be a voice for the students. " It ' s definitely something that I wasn ' t expecting to have to deal with this year, but it has been a learning experience, " she said, Before the election, Dandridge was a very private person desjiite her involvement and accomplishments, but upon arriving at Ole Miss, I3andridge began working as a resident assistant at Martin Hall. Iliat same year, she was elected as one of the freshmen homecoming maids. " 1 knew how to manage students in Martin and Slockard and how to deal with what they wanted and needed. " she said. Dandridge ' s role as the Black Student LInion president was another big role that helped prepare her for the ASB president role. As BSU president, not only did she learn how to run an organization on campus, but also how to fund it. By the end ol her term, she had increased the budget by $5,000. One of the most difficult things that she encountered while she was ASB president was working with the administration to try to get all of her platform goals ac- complished. " We only have a year term, so we were having to cram ev- erything we wanted to do into that year, " she said, wishing that she could have done more. TTie week before her term ended. Dandridge was still hard at work to get free printing on campus for students with a maximum of 1 60 pages. She has already accomplished 75 percent of the goals that she had. Some of these achievements are starting a clicker rental program for students in the librarv. having the first gay pride week at Ole Miss, extending the Turner Center hours, and having a water awareness week. According to Dandridge. one of the most rewarding things about this experience was being able to meet so many different people. " I ' ve learned so much about myself and people in gen- eral, " she said. " Meeting everyone and being put in this position has taught me so much. " Dandridge was not completely sure why she decided to run for president, but she knew that it had to do with Taylor McGraw. who was ASB president before she was. She served under him as .ASB director of communications, and was extremely impressed. " He taught me everything that I needed to know and inspired me with the things that he did. " said Dandridge. As Dandridge reflects on her past year and prepares to leave office, she leaves her successor with these words of wisdom. " Don ' t wail until the last minute and start doing things early, especially when you first get into office and are most excited.

The year when they finally get over the hump and make it to the NCAA tournament after a t o year drought. TTiey looked to have all the pieces in place, with seniors Reginald Buckner. Murphy HollovVay and Nick Williams leading the Rebels, as well as junior transfer Marshall Henderson added to the mix. It was a the start Ole Miss needed winning their first six games of the season against the likes of Mississippi Valley State, Arkansas-Little Rock, and Rutgers. In the first road game of the season. Ole Miss traveled to Middle Tennessee State in Murfreesboro. Tennessee. It was a tough battle for the Rebels and even with Henderson scoring 1 5 points in the second half alone, it was not enough as they picked up their first lossof the season by a score of 65-62. After another win against East Tennessee State University at home, Ole Miss prepared for a holiday trip to the Pacific. Their first stop was in Los ; ngeles with a game against Loyola Marymount that 264 saw the Rebels eek out a 73-70 win and earning their first road win in just their second road game of the early season. After a stop in Hollywood, Ole Miss headed to sunny Llawaii to participate in the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic. TTie first game did not go according to plan as the Rebels fell to Indiana State 87-85 in overtime, lire loss sent them to the losers bracket the rest of the tournament. Ole Miss took advantage of the remainder of their time in Hawaii, with a win against San Francisco followed up by a win against the home team of Hawaii. With one more game before the start of conference play, Ole iVliss hosted Fordham in what was never a close game. Flie Rebels ran Fordham out of the building in a 95-6 victorj ' . Ole Miss started SEC play on the road against Tennessee. Henderson scored a career-high 32 points helping the Rebels defeat the Volunteers 92- 74. It was the first time Ole Miss started i -0 in the SEC since the 2005-06 season. Next up lor the Rebels was a home game against SEC newcomers No. i o Missouri. In what might have looked like a shocking upset, Ole Miss controlled the game from the beginning thanks in part to Missouri not scoring in the first seven minutes of play, en route to a 64-49 victory. While Henderson had already been making a name for himself, it was the Vanderbilt game that cemented him as one of the most exciting players to watch. Down 78-75 with 3.2 seconds to go, Henderson shot from almost mid-court and draining a buzzer beater three-pointer to send the game into overtime. Ole Miss would pull ahead during the extra time and defeat the Commodores 89-79 go ' g 3-0 in the SEC. TTic Rebels would push their conference record to 6-0 with a big matchup against a young Kentucky Wildcat team. Ole Miss had their chances, even making a 1 6-0 run late in the game to pull to within one of the Wildcats. It wasn ' t enough though as the Rebels would lose their first conference and home same of the season. two more losses and another win. The Rebels faced a crucial blow to their NC Tournament hopes with a heartbreaking 6 3-6. to South Carolina. Two more wins against Auburn and Texas Ai W would seem to right the ship but an unexplainaM loss to Mississippi State, the worst team in the conference, would all but sink their NCAA Tournament ship. Ole Miss would end their season on a strong no ' . with wins against Alabama, in what was senior ti i hi for Holloway. Buckner and Williams, and LSII Baton Rouge to end the regular season. The two wins placed Ole Miss third in the SEC iiid giving them a double-bye into the quarterfinals oi nif SEC Tournament. The Rebels were going to ki - to run the table and win the SEC Championship if they had any chance of making it to the NCA. Tournament. With a second consecutive loss to Florida, Ole Miss Tlieir first test was a third match-up against the began a roller coaster ride going one win followed by Missouri Tigers. It was a closely contested game il ' J ' te) Coach Andy Kennedy cuts down the net after winning the SEC Championship in Nashville. Tenn. against the Florida Gators.

Starting point guard Jarvis Summers would go down with a head injury, forcing freshman I )ereli MiUinghaus to come in and play huge minutes. MiUinghaus rose to the occasion, sinking the game winning shot wTth time winding down and sending Ole Miss into the Semifinals and a date with defending tournament champion Vanderbilt. Vandy, coming off a big win against Kentucky in die iuarterfinals, proved to be a tough game for the Rebels. Much like their regular season encounter, the Commodores started hot behind the j-point line, but unlike the regular season game, they did not stay hot. Ole Miss took advantage of having an extra days rest and wore Vanderbilt down in the second half going on a 1 5-i t tn and never looking back. Ole Miss was on their way to the SEC Title game against number r seed Florida Gators. Ole Miss had defied the odds so far but a victory over the Gators seemed impossible. The first half played out that way as Horida held court takinga }S 26 lead into the hall. I he Rebels had been a second half team during the first two games and held true to form with a zi-t) run to start the second half taking 348-47 lead thanks to the impressive play ol Henderson and HoUoway. It was St. Patricks Day and the luck of the Irish was in the corner of the Rebels as they shocked the woriil and deteatetl Florida 66-63, claiming their first SEC Championship since , 98 , The win also exorcised the NCAA demon that had plagued Head Coach Andy Kennedy since his arrival at Ole Miss and getting them in the ' Big Darrce for the first time since 2002.

How does it make you feel? I was expecting us to have a good year. I think during our preseason we did better than I thought we would. Plus with the start of the SEC, we did good. Wc put in work. So my expectations were and I feel like we met them at times. Sometimes I feel like wc didn ' t but overall I think we had a great season. How do you think you did this overall season? I think 1 did decent. I couldn ' t ask for too much more. How do you think the t4;am did overall this season? I think we had ups and downs; more highs than lows. We went through 6-0 stretch in the SEC and were ranked 16 in the nation. I think we did good as a team How does it feel having scored 1,000 points and 1 ,000 rebounds? Do you feel a sense of accomplishment? I don ' t really feel anything right now. Right now it ' s just like " I have a thousand rebounds, What ' s next? " It hasn ' t hit mc right now. k I know when I ' m gone, my legacy lives on. but as of right now I just doii ' l led anytlilTig. What was going through your mind when you decided to leave Ole Miss? Deciding lo leave wasn ' t my hardest tlecision. I was glad to be home with my little girl. There were family issues at home that 1 needed to take care of. I wasn ' t happy as far as basketball, but I was glad to be around my family. T he hardest decision was deciding to come back. My mom just told me " If you want to go back, then go back. " She told me " You ' re the one who has to walk in these shoes. Everybody is going to have something to say but you have to live ibis life " so I decidetl to come back. Do you thinkyoii made the right decision in cominghack? Oh yeah. Do you ever think about ivanting to go hack to South Carolina? I wonder how it would have been if I would have stayed. Never have the urge to go back. Not to play ball. It ' s your senior year, what are yimr plans after this year? I got invited to this camp called Portsmouth Invitational. It ' s like a senior camp lor basketball, so I ' m going to go there and do all the workouts I can and then just explore my options. I am also getting my degree. If YOU don ' t laki " your career to the next level, what are your goals goiyig lo he post basketball? I want a job. not like a police officer, but probably like coaching or working with kids, So you definitely want a career within basketball even if it doesn ' t involve playing? Within basketball, or just with kids that come from the area I come from. And just lei them know that it is possible to get out from where we ' re from.

It was one of those things that 1 realized once I was around the s| ort I knew I wanted to be a coach. On the high school level. 1 won a couple of champi- onships on the 800 level and that drew the Ole Miss attention. " Coach O ' Neal said his proudest moment when he was an athlete was when his team was the " SEC runner up in the 4x800 and being named all SEC as a freshmen. " He goes on to say the hardest thing he had to overcome as an athlete was when in college. " I was in the training room for a year and a half with arch problems, so it was tough because you could walk on it and think that you were fine, but I couldn ' t run, so it was tough to overcome.

What they got instead was a year of inconsistency. " I feel like we still came up short. " Tanner Mathis said. " Our goal wasn ' t to play for a regional championship, it was to win a national championship. " The zo! 2 recruiting class for the Rebels was the nation ' s third ranked recruiting class and began the season on February 1 7 in a three-game series at TCU before they returned home for a i 2-game home stand. Ole Miss then took the road to play Louisville before coming hack in Swayze Field to play their fust South eastern Conference team against the Auburn Tigers. As the season contin- ued, Ole Miss was inconsistent, losing against lower ranked teams and then winning against Florida, the number one ranked SEC team at the time. " ' i think wc had mixed emotions, last year we came off of the 20 1 1 season where we failed to make postseason af- ter nine years so it was good to get hack to post season and make it to a regional final, " Coach Mike Bianco said. " I think it ' s fair to say for our program, our ex- pectations are higher and we had some good guys to make a great season. In all athletics, we strive to do a little more. " The Rebels hosted 32 home dates and was able to win 25 of those games. Season tickets went on sale in Novem- ber 20 1 1 and fans were encouraged to secure their spots early in one oi the nation ' s premiere college baseball atmospheres. " Ihe student section makes Swayze a tough place for opponents to come play, giving us a big advantage, " Mike Mayers said. Inconsistency had many effects on the team and their confidence. " A lot of times we look back and see the things we could have done more in. I think that one of the things wc did was draw in some of the players just to gel back to post season where in years past the players played with a little more confidence and we played with our backs against the wall, with a chip on our shoulders, " Bianco said. " When you start playing with that ' have to ' rather than " you get to " mentality, it leads to that inconsistency and lack of confi- dence. " The season was finished at the NCAA baseball tournament when Ole Miss was eliminated on the final night of the re- gional game. Ole Miss lost against TCLl. 7 4- Both Alex Yarbrough and Bobby Wahl were tabbed for preseason honors by the ABC A after the game. " This team Is like a family, we spend so much time together that when you have a group as close as ours, you gain a big advantage, " Mayers said. " ' Knowing that each guy has your back makes it easier to have success on the field. When you make a mistake, the guy behind you is more than capable of picking you up. We all believe in each other. " The team felt as though the coaches .1 their staff impacted the overall feel ti the team. " The behind-the-scenes people get th credit for making us go, " Mathis said. " Coach Bianco obviously does a grciii job handling everything. " Coach Bianco that it was more of tlu players that lead to a great baseball team. " They ' re all here to get the full exper: ence and to get their education but yoi hope as a coach that you have done something to help that improvement, ! give them the structure and routine an that you motivate them every day and push them past limits they would nev , have set for themselves and help them to get to places they didn ' t think they could get to individually. " Bianco said. " I thiHK that is one of the goals as a coach. " Both the coaching staff and the team hope for a more consistent year for the upcoming season. 284 2012 senior Mat.

' d l y LSLI in the ShC Tournament, the Diamond Rebels awaited tlieir NCAA fate. Tlieit path to Omaha was going to begin in le-xas as Ole Miss was selected as the third seed in the College Station Regional hosted by Texas A M. The Rebels first opponent was set to be the second seeded TCLI Horned l-rogs. Ole Miss faced I CU in the 20 1 2 season opener with the teams splitting the two game series. The opening matchup was closely contested with the score tied at two runs apiece. In the eightli inning it was all about teamwork for the Rebels as the upperclassmen set the tabic. Juniors Tanner Mathis and Ale.x Yarbrough along with senior Zach Kirksey all reached to load the bases with one out. It was then up to the underclassmen to finish the job. Freshman Auston Housl ' ield did his part drawinga full count walk bringing in a runner and giving Ole Miss their first lead of the game. It was then freshman Sikcs Orvis ' turn and he did not disappoint. Orvis bit a twoRBI single to go up 52. Ole Miss would go on to win 6-2 and advance to the ncvt round of regionals. It would be an away game for the Relx-ls as their second matchup would come against lop seeded and eighth ranked le.vas A M. Mathis had a mon ster game as he reach ed base on all five plate ap- pearances, going J-for-3 with two walks, three runs scored and an Rlil to lead the ( le Miss offense. The Aggies struck first with a two-run third inning. ITie lead did not last long as the Rebels answered back with two runs of their own in the bottom of the frame. Ole Miss moved into the lead adding two more runs in the fourth and kept control the rest ol the wav. Ilie Aggies would tack on another run but it would not be enough as the Rebels defeated them 63 to move on to the cbam| ionsbip rounil ol the regional. I he regional championship game would be a rematch with Ole Miss facing TCLI. With the Rebels going 20 through the regional, they would have two chances to defeat ICll due to the double elimination format. ICLl fought their way back through the loser bracket to earn their spot in the championship game. ITie I lorned Frogs forgot what happened to them in their first encounter with Ole Miss eadier in the weckctid and handed the Rebels their first loss of the regional in a 52 victory. It would come ilown to the winner take-all regional final ihc following night. A trip to Omaha was not in the cards for Ole Miss as they would fall to TCU 7-4 in the deciding regional championship, eiuling the Rebels 20 1 2 campaign. " It was a frustrating tournament for us because we played so well in the beginning, " sophomore pitcher liobby Wahl said. " I think we got a little too comfortable. We were feeling too good about our- selves knowing wc had two chances to beat TCU.

In 20 1 1 . they won only 1 4 games, while in 2012 they ended with a record of 22- : 2. " We only returned one pitcher with two wins on the mound. For us to do wlial we did this season u ' as phenomenal. " says new Head Coach Windy ITiees. One of the bi esi challenges for them this season was lack of confidence in abilities, especially starting out. " It ' s hard to leach confidence. " says lliees. " [The players] wouldn ' t l)e here if they weren ' t talented. " The team quickly started overcoming this challenge, mainly by Ix-ing open to everything new brought to the table by Coach lliees and her staH. " These kids, with me being so very different from what they ' ve had in the past, didn ' t complain. Tliey said, ' Show us the way and we will listen to you " . " says Thees. Coach Thces showed them the way by emphasizing the fact diat if the team worked hard, they would reap the benefits, and the coaching staff ncTer stopped encouraging them to improve. The biggest victory of the season was the team ' s away game at nationally ranked LSU, Even though the odds seemed to be against the Rebels when star center fielder RT Cantillo broke her hand the day before, the ladies played as a unit and secured the win. According to Coach Thces, LSU victories ar going to be big when you play for Ole Miss. But. the Softball coaching staff ne ' er stops ' always encouraging the team to get better ever) ' day. " We can ' t be so excited that we jusi l at LSU and then let it flatten out. Tliat ' s just one step. Now we need to sweep LSU. Now we need to climb, " said Thees. Wliile all of this sounds like very hard work, the Softball team does get to have some fijn. Of die 56 games in a season, only 24 are conference games. For the remainder of the games, die program can travel anywhere they would like. Coach TTiees generally chooses pans of the country that the athletes have ne ' er seen before or places close to players ' hometowns so that their families will be able to come and watch. " Wherever we go. we try to experience a little bit of thai town ' s culture, " says Thees. In San Francisco, the team was able to take a Iwat ride under the Golden Gale Bridge and around Alcatraz. " The girls will probably remember that boat ride around the bay more than the games. That ' s one of the wonderftjl things about college athletics. " says Thees. I-ooking to next season, juniors RT Cantillo and Londen Ladncr. who both had batting averages above .300, are ex]wcted to continue with dieir offensive leadership. Senior left fielder Brittany Broome is also predicted to lead the team offensively through stolen bases. While six new freshman will he on the team next season.

STORIES 2911 ? Freshman Maddie Fnedmann low fives her teammates during pre game introductions. ' ;i rHE 60(A)LDEN 6IRLS k The Ole Miss soccer program made big gains during the 20 1 2 season. The team won five more games than in 20 1 1 , with a 1 3-9-0 record. It was a complete team effort as Head Coach Matt Mott saw contributions come from every spot on the roster, including exceptional play from his 1 1 freshmen. The season started off on an eight game winning streak, including wins over Middle Tennessee, Troy, Texas Tech and their SEC opener against Arkansas. The 8-0 start was the best in program history for the Soccer Rebels. After suffering their first losses of the season against then No. 10 Texas A M and No. 15 Missouri. Ole Miss could never seem to put together another winning streak of more than three games. They would win at Alabama then go on a three game skid with losses to Morida, Auburn and Georgia. The Lady Rebels looked to have righted the ship as they rattled off wins against Kentucky. Vanderbilt and South Carolina. They would end the regular season with yet another three game losing streak against LSU. Tennes- see and Mississippi State. The loss to the Lady Bulldogs would cost them the Magnolia Cup, which they had just reclaimed the season before. Ole Miss would limp into Orange Beach, Alabama, where the SEC Tournament was held. Tliey knew a bid to ihe NCAA tournament woulil be on the line and the women played with that sense of urgency in the first round match against LSLI. ITie Rebels avenged their loss to the Lady Tigers from ro days prior with a 1 o victory. Tlieir second round match would prove to be a heart breaker against No. 1 1 Florida. Ole Miss would tie the match i-i late in the second half only to have Florida re spond with a c uick goal of their own and hold on to a 2 i win. It would end up being the e nd of Ole Miss season as the NCAA did not pick them for the tournanieni, It was still a remarkable year for the Ole Miss soccer program as a lew firsts were recorded, h was the first time under the Matt Mott regime that Ole Miss became a top 25 team, reaching No. 22 at one point. Juniors Mandy McCalia and Rafaclle Souz;i tied with a team high 1 3 goals on the season. Souz;i and McCalla also tied for most assists with seven. Tlic duo of McCalla and Souza made their mark in the SEC as well, tying for first in three individual categories: Points (53). Points Per Game ( t. 50) and Coals (13}. Freshman Olivia Harrison (lid not wait long to make her presence felt on the team. 1 larrison finished third on the team with six goals.

On the tlelensive end ol things. so[)homore goalkeeper Kelly McCormiek hati a solid year, starting in all 22 games for Ole Miss. She allowed 27 goals, averaging 1. 27 goals per game. McCormiek countered that with 85 saves on the year. I ler early play helped earn SEC Defensive Player of the Week for two straight weeks in September. With only three seniors graduating, and six juniors, led by McCalla and Souza. looking to take over the leader- shi|) role for 201 3. the Ole Miss soccer program is poised to take another big step in a positive direction next season.

The Palmer Salloum Tennis Center received a facelift during the iniloor portion ol the I dy Rebels season, but was ready for action in their first outdoor match against Southern Mississippi. The No. 24 Lady Rebels had little to no trouble against the Lady Golden Eagles in a dominating 7-0 victory. In their final tune-up match before SEC play began, Ole Miss hosted No. 1 9 Tulsa in what was another convincing 5-2 win. The first SEC match of the year would be a trip to Auburn. Alabama to take on the Lady Tigers. Much like their match against Southern Miss, this was a no contest, as the Lady Rebels defeated Auburn 7-0. Their first hiccup would come the following match against No. 25 Alabama in Tuscaloosa. The Lady Crimson Tide came to play and defeated Ole Miss 5-2. The following weekend Ole Miss would split their two matches, defeating No. 8 Tennessee 5-2 then falling to No. 7 Georgia 5-2. making their SEC record 2-2. After four straight SEC matches. Ole Miss would have a midweek match against Florida International in Miami, Florida. The long trip did not phase the Lady Rebels as they looked to have found their groove again with an impressive 7-0 win. After Spring Break, Ole Miss would start back up with another SEC match against South Carolina. The long break did not kill the momentum gained Irom their vic- tory against FILI, as they defeated the Lady Gamecocks 5-2. While their trip to South Florida was fruitful, the same cannot be said for their trip to North Florida. Ole Miss would take on No. 2 Florida in a losing effort, falling 6- 1 , dropping their SEC record to 3-3. Tliat would be the final blemish during conference play, as Ole Miss would begin a livegame winning streak to close out the regular season.

Finishing the 201 1 season with an abysmal 2-ro record, its worst in school history, the Rebels had nowhere to go but up. The Rebels did not waste time beginning their climb. After dropping their season opener to Jacksonville State in 2or r. they were not going to allow that to happen twice. Central Arkansas gave Ole Miss all they could handle in the first half taking a 20- 1 4 lead into the break, but that is why they play four quarters. The Rebels came out and outscored Central Arkansas 35-7 in the second half starting their season off with a 49-27 victory. While it took Ole Miss five weeks to earn their second win of the season in 20 1 1 , it only took the second game of the 20 1 2 season to reach that mark. The Rebels handily defeated UTEP 28-10 to improve their mark to 2-0. The third game of the season was the true test of what direc- tion the Ole Miss program was heading. It was against the Texas Longhorns. h was the most anticipated game in recent memory as it had been sold out lor months and had an a-list guest list headlined by longtime Texas supporter Matthew McConaughey. fhe Rebels fought hard, but just were not at the same level as the Longhorns, losing 66- i . While technically the fourth game of the year was an away game due to being in New Orleans, it had the feel of a home game. Rebel Nation filled the Supcrdome to cheer on OIc Miss as they took on the Tulane Green Wave. After a 26 point first c[uarter. the Rebels coasted to a 39-0 win finishing non-conference play 3- 1 . Ole Miss opened SEC play with a trip to Tuscaloosa to take on the defending National Champion Alaijama. They gave the Crimson Tide a scare, keeping the score close and even taking the lead, for 1 5 seconds, until Alabama returned a kickoff for a I D and never looked back. The Rebels woidd drop their conference opener. Ole Miss would lose their second straight to Icxas M in heartbreaking fashion. I hey were in complete control of the game for over three quarters. It took future 1 leisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel to lead the Aggies for a late game comeback, winning 0-27. Ihc Rebels would get on a mini run, winning their next two games against Auburn for 1 lomecoming and Arkansas with a last second, game-winning field goal. Ole Miss was sitting at 5-3 and had four chances to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2009. It wouM not come at Cleorgia. as the Bulldogs ilefcaieil the Rebels 37- 1 o. Vanderbilt looked to he the game that Ole Miss would get that coveted sixth victory. It seemed 10 be in the cards as the Rebels dominated the Commodores for most of the game. Vandy quarterback Jordan Rodgers threw a late touchdown 1(1 hand Ole Miss a crushing 27-26 defeat. It was of! lo Baton Rouge (or the final road game of the season against LSU. ibis was a back and forth affair with Ole Miss having the edge late until a muffed punt coverage allowed the ligers to take the lead and keep it. beating the Rebels 41-35. It all came down to the Egg Bowl. Ole Miss ' last chance to become bowl eligible. With the home crowd behind them, the Rebels pulled out a huge victory over in-state rival Mississippi State. 41-14.

My decision was made as a junior. I couldn ' t stand State because the only thing they kept saying was the school up north and they weren ' t telling me anything about their school, so in my mind they had no chance.

The Leonardtown, Maryland n iiive loves " being a part of the game day t-vpcriencc during football season! " Her best memory from this season was " stomping Pitts- burgh at the Compass Bowl. It was definitely DFth traveling to the game during the break. " " Ualancing band and class can be tough some- times, but the professors are usually pretty understanding if I tell them in advance, " Sha- I ' ln explains. She said she loved going to New ( )rleans and " performing during the Saints lialf-time show. " She said her favorite song to [jerform is the entire Grove routine. Sharon explains, " Band is where I ' ve met my tlosest friends in college.

Alabama native says his most memorable moment of this year was " Be- ing able to storm the field with the rest of the lans after the Egg Bowl. " We practice almost everyday, " says Hjalmar. A home game means practicing on Friday. I Ijalmar explains a typical day of practice: " We grab our instruments and warm up, then we head outside to conduct rehearsal, which consists of essentially running and rerunning segments of a show and slowly correcting one mistake at a time. " He goes on to say. " Rehearsing a marching band is a really slow process because the sheer amount of people working together makes it hard to communi- cate. However, when we do get a show done and get it right, it ' s pretty cool. " Mary Simmons is a junior accounting major m the Ole Miss Color Guard. She is from Ray- mond. Mississippi and has been performing in the Color Guard since eighth grade. Her favorite thing about Color Guard itself is the " way I can express myself through music that ' s dance.

" explains Mary. She goes on to explain a typical day of practice; " We aet there at 4 p.m. and warm up for about 30 minutes, then the band comes out and we run the show for about an hour and a half.

" REBEL YELL STORY CK ' NZir Mt CAl FE AND JAKE THOMPSON PHOTOS ' lOMAS CRANING Aimee Gregory, a junior from CollierviUc, Tennessee is a marketing major and Rebelette at Ole N4iss. She has been an Ole Miss Rebelette for three years. " 1 started dancing when I was three years old because my mom w anted to keep me busy. I came to Ole Miss for Rebelettes because one of my best friends Kelley Deiblcr, a senior Rebelette this year, was having the time of her life here. When I came down to visit and saw how much fun she was having I knew Ole Miss had to be the place for me. " The Ole Miss Rebelettes regularly perform at football, basketball, volleyball and soccer. This year they added tennis matches to their schedule. With football making it to postseason play, the Rebelettes also traveled to the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham. They also went to the SEC Basketball Tournament held in Nashville. They were placed under Ole Miss sports marketing this year, making them the face ol Ole Miss Athletics. " Being an Ole Miss Rebelette has given me the chance to represent my school in a very positive and exciting way. The connections and friendships I ' ve made in the Ole Miss community will be ones 1 cherish forever. " said Aimee. Kelsey Loebel. a sophomore management major, says. " Rebelettes is a big time commitment, but if you love to dance and support your Ole Miss Rebels, it is all worth the time spent. 1 spend 310 multiple hours a day doing things for Rebelettes. " Kelsey says the Rebelettes team dynamics include " a good work ethic along with communication, patience, teamwork, and a common goal. T hese are a few things that make our team successful. " In January, the Rebelettes made their yearly trip to Disney World to compete in the UDA Nationals. The Ole Miss cheerleaders also traveled for a competition, but they had to go a little farther. In January of 2o I 2 they placed first in the World Llniversitv Cheerleading Championships in Orlando, Florida. That earned them the right to go to Paris, France and perform at the European Cheerleading Championships held in November. Alex Blair, a junior cheerleader studying criminal justice, is from London, Kentucky. Alex said she got her start doing gymnastics when she was five. " Paris was the most amazing experience. It was definitely a trip of a lifetime and to get to experience it with my best friends made it that much more special, " Alex Blair, a junior cheerleader said. We were hoping to bring the international title back home to the United States. To say that Ole Miss did that is a big honor. " The squad stays busy with practices as well as making charity appearances scattered throughout their week. Much like the Rebelettes, the cheerleaders perform at football, men ' s and women ' s basketball and will pick one game of soccer and volleyball. GET TO KNOW: REBEL Rebel the black beat was " born " on April 1 , 20 1 1 and made his Firsl appearance at a baseball game that spring. Although most of the student body still sees Rebel as the " new " mascot, a closer look shows that his devotion to Ole Miss seems Generations deep. Michael Thompson, Senior Associate Athletics Director for Communications and Market ing, gives insight to Rebel s character. Although Rebel loves all Ole Miss fans, " his passion is work- ing with kids, " said Thompson. His favorite part of football game day is Rebel Fanfare where he gets to interact with the kids, show off his playful personality, and pull some pranks too. But. it ' s not all fun and games when it comes to Rebel ' s love of children. He heads up Move Mississippi, a program that is aimed at fighting childhood obesity. Through an online program used by students to track health choices, he encour ages and educates young people about nutrition and e.vercise. In addition to Move Mississippi, Rebel participates in many other community activities including reading with kids, ap- pearing at birthday parties and parades, and even acting as the ring " bear " -er at weddings. " Rebel is a huge Ole Miss fan. Huge. 1-le ' s like the super fan, " said Thompson. More than anything, Rebel wants all Ole Miss sports, from basketball to tennis, to succeed. 1 Ic is present at many games - lor both men and women ' s sports - to cheer on the players and rally the crowd. If Rebel could say anything to the student body, it would be this: " Be early and be loud.

SINCE 1899 This yeai has been a wonderful year for Chi Omega Tau chapter at Ole Miss and we are proud of what we have accomplished together as a chapter. One highlight of our year was in academics our chapter had the highest GPA overall out of all sororities on campus in the spring In campus life we are proud of our two members who were elected to the Ole Miss Homecoming Court, Britt Buchanan was chosen as sophomore maid and Betsy Baird was chosen as junior maid. Also the student body elected Virginia England and Mary Love Fair as Campus Favorites. In philanthropy our chapter hosted our annual crawfish boil in the spring to raise money for Make A Wish, This year we granted a wish to a seventeen year old girl named Erica who was diagnosed with cancer. Our chapter planned a scavenger hunt for Erica around the Ole Miss campus with different stations where members dressed up as Disney characters. Even our own houseboys dressed up as Disney prmces! The last stop was the Chi Omega house where over 300 of our members gathered to tell Erica that her wish had been granted and she would be going to Disney World This was such a special day for our chapter and one that Erica and the Chi Omegas at Ole Miss will never forget. Nationally our chapter was recognized at Chi Omega convention with the Award of Excellence. Our chapter was one of 16 out of 176 Chi Omega chapters to receive this highest honor This year has been a great year for the Chi Omegas at Ole Miss because of the member ' s dedication that they have for our chapter. I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful group of respected women and thankful tor all the hard work that each member of Chi Q has shown in 2012. The most important thing to me though about our chapter is that we all care for each other. Chi Omega is more than a sorority, it is a family it is a place to call home. PRESIDENT SANDRA ENGLAND PHOTOS AUSTIN MCAFEE STORY MADISEN THEOBALD For nine years now, sorority ladies of Ole Miss and women from all over the Oxford area have attended C.A.R.E. Walk, which stands for Cure, Access, Research, and Education. The C.A.R.E. Walk this year was held on Sept. 1 3 ' at 6:00 p.m. on the Ole Miss campus. Many women gathered in their pink beads to walk two miles around the campus, making a statement in the war on cancer by raising $20,000 dollars this year. A group of beloved Zeta alum members started the custom here at Ole Miss, and the walk has been a hit ever since. These dehghtful women still partake in the event today and pass out fun items such as pink beads, along with information packets at the event. Sororities participate in various philanthropic services throughout the semes- ter, and this is a main event. In partnership with Zeta and Baptist Memorial Hospital, sororities selected this Panhellenic ' s philan- thropy to kick off Recruitment with a fresh and meaningful start. Along with this large event comes a lot of preparation, such as making reservations well in advance for the stage and sound ecjuipment. contacting probable sponsors, informing UPD of route, place, and time, deciding on a design for the tshirt and banner, gathering refreshments for after the walk, organizing online registration, keeping up with money from all sorority women, potential new members, members of other organizations on campus, and community members, ordering tables, chairs, and garbage cans. All of this time consuming preparation truly paid off this year by havin g over 3,000 women to participate in C.A.R.E. Walk on Ole Miss ' s very own campus. This walk is not dedicated to any specific woman with breast cancer, but it can via the participants dedicating their walk to a close friend or family who has encountered breast cancer. " This year and last year ' s C.A.R.E. Walk are very special for me because my roommate ' s mom beat a bad case of breast cancer. So it its very special and dear to me to go through the walk, " Katherine Rollins, a sophomore education major of the Phi Mu sorority, said tenderly. Some women walked with signs on the back of their shirts with the name of the woman or women they knew who were or are affected by breast cancer. In charge of this event is the vice president of Community Service of Panhellenic Council, Ashlyn Jones, senior liberal arts major. " I believe that participating in such events makes our Greek community stronger, " said Jones. TTiis walk is especially exciting for the Potential New Members to get involved with the Greek system here at Ole Miss. For many women, this was their first step into serving others. Annelise Albert of the Tri Delta sorority, and a sophomore international studies major, loved meeting all the new girls and getting to know them better. " I love being on the opposite side (not as someone going through rush), " said Albert. " Walking with friends while supporting Breast Cancer Awareness was definitely a great experience! I am so glad to be a part of something that is making a true impact, " said freshman and Potenti;ii New Member, Caroline Smith, a psychology major. C.A.R.E Walk is a declaration by the ladies who participated in the walk that Breast Cancer has negatively affected many women s lives. Through their giving back, the women of Ole Miss and Oxtord have made the C.A.R.E. Walk an annual feature on the university campus for nearly a decade now. LON During the 2011 2012 academic year the men of Sig Ep have wofl ed hard in the community.

However by the time our sophomore year rolls around Ms. V becomes the coolest person ever She makes us recycle and apologize to the dinning room if we slip up and say something ' unlady like " Ms. V has the best sense of humor and she has helped secured phi mu ' s spot as the best place to get a cookie on Fridays, and a great, fresh salad any other day of the week. Everyone loves her. and I have had the best fun getting to know her over the past for years (Mary Margaret Johnson, Phi Mu) If you ' ve ever seen a woman walking around campus with two fur balls, the you ' ve seen Aunt Mary The only thing she loves more than Daisy and Pudder are her Sigma Chi boys. She ' s been with us for five years now. and she somehow still loves us no matter how much we push her buttons. (Taylor Blaylcok. Sigma Chi) Mrs. Sarah once told my friend Kenzie and me. " If there isone thing I learned when I first got here, it was that the freshman have no idea that they have no idea. " We love her humor and her tidbits of wisdom. She ' s the best and I couldn ' t imagine Chi without Mrs. SaSa! (Kakky Brown, Chi Omega) To Ms, Connie there are about four of us guys with circular tortoise shell glasses.

(Vivian Lang, Kappa Delta) 341 «»8.- KAPPA DEL n SINCE 1927 Kappa Delta Soiority, founded in 1897, promotes service to others, academic excetlence, leadership, and sisterhood. The Alpha Nu Chapter of Kappa Delta was founded at The University of Mississippi in 1927. Our chapter is dedicated to our two national philanthropies. Prevent Child Abuse America and Girl Scouts of the USA. We raised $47,000 for Prevent Child Abuse America and the Exchange Club Family Center of Oxford through our Shamrock philanthropy event. This was more than any other KD chapter in the nation ' Shamrock consists of a golf tournament, raffle, 5k, brunch, and silent auction. Kappa Delta has been a proud partner of the Girl Scouts of the USA since 1998, and every year we hold many events for our local Girl Scout troops, including the International Girls Day Festival, Friends Don ' t Bully events, and Uniquely Mel events, and an International Tea Party Academics are a strong focus for our chapter. KD consistently ranks in the top three of all sororities in overall GPA. Most recently, we ranked second highest sorority GPAi On campus, we have five ASB senators, with sisters serving as Director of Health Promotions Director of First Year Experience, External Legislation Monitor, Public Relations Social Media Chairman, and Campus Organizations Liason. We have members involved in the Ambassador program. Student Alumni Council where we have two officers, and the Green Grove Initiative, founded by two of our very own sisters KD is also represented in the Honors College, the Rebelettes, cheerleading, theatre, track, soccer and many honor societies and volunteer organizations During this year ' s homecoming festivities we were thrilled to have one of our own, Mackenzie Lowery, elected as senior homecoming maid KDs love to volunteer with our philanthropies, get involved on campus, and strive for our academic goals, but more than anything we love to spend time with each other Kappa Delta is a sisterhood, and we love being a part of it!

Ever since that great day the Alpha Beta chapter has spent hundreds of hours of service in various ares. The sisters of this sorority complete service projects in six different areas including Nations of the World, Mental Health, and University Community We have given back through projects such as The Big Event, Relay for Life, Out of the Oarkness, UNICEF Trick or Treat and much more. I have seen myself and others grow with each project we complete. I have also seen the difference we make for others with our simple and humbling tasks. Our service makes us great leaders, but most importantly our service makes us better friends and sisters to each other.

I have been planning this book for Ole Miss since that day. Ole Miss, in your hands is my first born. I hope you love it as much as I do. This year has been a roller coaster of stress, happiness, and accomplishment. I never imagined the amount of joy my staff would give me. Without the 20 1 2-20 1 3 yearbook personal, this book would not be in your hands. Now to tell you about my incredible crew. Callie Daniels, you have been my calm in the storm. When things are going crazy and stories were being delayed, you were always there to smoothly manage your staff. You were always on top of the writing staff and copy editors. Without your organization, this book would have become something much less. Thank you for giving this book the content that will be timeless for generations to come. Jake Ihompson. you have been such a joy to work with. You refuse to take anything less than great from your staff and were always able to think on your feet when interviews fell through or became delayed. You encouraged your staff like I have never seen before. Those sports writers were so lucky to work for you, and I know you taught them so much about sports reporting. Thank you for helping future sports writers get their footing and devoting so much time to this book. Miriam Taylor, you have been my right hand lady since the day wc met. Your designs have blown me away this year. I was so lucky to have met you three years ago and have you be the Design Editor this year. Your creativity is never lacking and your commitment to finish this hook early was phenomenal. You have been such an encourager to your staff, to me. and to this book. You never stopped believing in this book ' s potential, you always wanted it to be the best looking and most awarding winning book since day one. Thank you lor sharing your talents with this year ' s book. Brittani Acuff. you are more than words can describe. You have been my go-to person for hunting down any source for a story, members ofgreek society, or president of a club. I think you have about everybody on this campus ' contact information. 1 hank you ior allowing me to call you at any M d all times of the day. Alex Edwards, you and I were such a great visual team last year and I was happy to have you come back to staff this year. You have been a great Photography Editor and irienti. You have encouraged me at times that 1 have been so discouragetl and you have given this hook your full conmiitment ior two years straight. You have been at the SMC to help Miriam and I keep going, even though you already finished photos. Ihank you for pro ' idino this book with stunning photography and talented photographers. Jessica James, you are the behind-the-scenes hero for this book. No one can handle the greek pages and club pages like you do. You have devoted so much time and stress to organizing the group pages for this book. No one can do your job t he way you do. Thank vou for returning this year and for always being patient with me. Tliank you for always being a pro!)lem solver. Debra Novak, you are my yearbook mom. You are the woman I ho])e to be one day. You are always patient with me. keeping me on task daily, and have made yourself always available for my freak outs. This book is going to be a success because of you. I can honestly say. I cannot imagine this book ' s production without you. My biggest thank you goes to you. thank you for beinga part of everything in this hook and for beinga part of this year ' s staff. luture editors better know how lucky they are to have you as their advisor (il they don ' t I ' ll come up here and make sure they learn llieir lesson). Now for a personal thank you. My fianc , Jacob Batte and my tlog. Annabelle. These two have never asked anything from me, they have only given me unconditional love. I am lucky to spend my future with them. Thank you Annabelle for always being the hajipiest to see me and never being mad when I come home at 3 am. Jacob, you arc the most selfless man I know and have been there to root me on, even when I felt things would not come together. You always remind me of how capable I am and how successful my team and I are together. Thank you again and again. I love you both. I lolty Ibddy! Elizabeth Beaver M " I ' M MORE CONVINCED. WHEN WE TALK ABOUT VISION AND PURPOSE, THAT OUR CORE VALUES MATCH, OUR SUPPORTERS MATCH. OUR ALUMNI MATCH. OUR STUDENTS MATCH AS FAR AS STRIVING TO BE THE BEST AND HAVING A FAM ILY FEEL AT THE SAME TIME OF BEING THE FLAGSHIP INSTITUTION. I THINK THAT SPEAKS WELL TO WHAT WE ' RE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH IN BOTH ATHLETICS AND ACADEMICS, I THINK PEOPLE EXPECT US TO PERFORM AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL AND THERE IS A HUNGER TO SUPPORT THAT AND GET ON BOARD AND THERE IS A PASSION FOR THAT I ' M MORE CONVINCED NOW THAT THIS IS THE PLACE YOU CAN DO ALL OF THAT " -ATHLETIC DIRECTOR ROSS BJORK ' .l ' n.
