In light of this year’s celebration of 50 years of integration at The University of Mississippi, many question the relative lack of diversity among university faculty and staff.
Accounting professor Annette Pridgen said that there is still much work to do to achieve a fully diverse community at Ole Miss.

Hey, come on in. Take a seat on the sofa. How was school today? That’s good to know. Keep up the hard work. I just know it will pay off in the end. So ... listen. We need to talk about something.

The Daily Mississippian and I are separating.

“There is only so much that patrol officers can do,” Sellars said. “It takes an effort from many different aspects of the university.”

As the Ole Miss men’s basketball season ended, rumors began to swirl that Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy would be a top candidate to replace former head coach Mike Davis at UAB. Davis was fired this past Friday after a 122-73 record in six seasons at the school, which included four consecutive seasons with at least 20 regular-season wins and an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2010-11. Later that day, Gary Parrish of CBS Sports reported that UAB might try to lure Kennedy from Ole Miss. Kennedy played for UAB from 1989 to 1991 under legendary coach Gene Bartow. He was an Honorable Mention All-America Selection in 1991, in addition to being a two-time All-Sun Belt Conference team member, and finished his career as the school’s second all-time leading scorer with 1,787 points and still holds more than 15 school records.

During the day, business and language major Evan Morrison seems like a normal graduate student. He gets up at 7 a.m. to walk his puppy. After breakfast, he either rushes to work at his father’s seafood shop or goes to work with Ole Miss First as a graduate assistant. He then attends class from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in an attempt to finish his master’s degree in May. The rest of the afternoon is dedicated to meetings with the Associated Student Body and the Graduate Student Council.
