The town of Salerno, Italy, is known for its proxim- ity to the Amalfi Coast, not for housing destitute under- grads, but that is exactly the situation a handful of Ole Miss students found themselves in this summer while studying abroad.

β€œI had no money in a foreign country,” finance soph- omore Kristin Leaptrott said. β€œIt was a really stressful ex- perience.”

I feel somewhat strange admitting it, but I have fallen head over heels for this town. I have lived in a lot of places and met a lot of people, thanks to my overly enthusiastic mother who makes friends with every thing that has the ability to breathe, her classic victim being the woman standing behind her in the grocery store. Just ask artist, Zach Tutor, but had she not stormed into Square Books and antagonized the poor guy, I never would have known about Supersonic Electronic, or the amazing art it held.

FRIDAY: OLE MISS 5,
TULANE 1

Behind the arms of junior right-hander Matt Crouse (3-0) and senior right-hander Jake Morgan, the Ole Miss baseball team (10-1) took the opening game of the weekend series with a 5-1 victory over Tulane (7-3) on a rainy Friday night.

Crouse allowed one run on four hits in five innings before a 50-minute rain delay in the top of the sixth. Morgan took over from there, pitching four scoreless innings to earn his third save of the season.

In an unprecedented move a few weeks ago, the University announced that most non-freshman students must relocate to off-campus housing next semester to accommodate the hoards of new students attending the University of Mississippi in the fall.

In an unprecedented move a few weeks ago, the University announced that most non-freshman students must relocate to off-campus housing next semester to accommodate the hoards of new students attending the University of Mississippi in the fall.

As could be expected, many current students are outraged at the decision, having to make other living arrangements on such short notice. Although many students had not planned on staying on campus next year anyway, many other students are unexpectedly being forced to find off-campus housing.

Most students know that housing changes are evident in the future of the University. If you don’t know, I suggest checking Ole Miss Today once in a while.

Starting next fall, upperclassmen will be considered second priority when it comes to on-campus housing.

Due to an overabundance of freshman applicants, and the requirement that they live on campus, there is a good chance that there will be no room for anyone else. This is understandable, and leaves no room for debate.

On a typical weekday afternoon, a line of about 30 students stretches around the corner by the Kinard math lab. In previous years, lines on a Thursday or Friday afternoon weren’t abnormal, Marlow Dorrough, director of freshman mathematics, said. What’s different about this year is that there are lines every day of the week.
