The University of Mississippi student organization SistahSpeak! has dyed the water in the Phi Mu fountain pink in support of individuals affected by breast cancer.

About 50 people attended an event held yesterday at the fountain in the center of campus to kick off the week-long dying of the fountain.
“We wanted to do this to not only support people affected by breast cancer, but
to raise awareness on campus,” vice president of SistahSpeak! Danielle Bean said.

When Ronald Reagan ran for president he asked Americans if they were better off than they were four years ago. Americans can answer that question for themselves this time around. The Republican Party poses a much more urgent question this election cycle: How much worse will you be in four years if Barack Obama still resides in the White House?
Believe whatever you want about Mitt Romney, but Paul Ryan is the smartest choice for vice president in nearly 60 years.

Hotty Toddy will forever be remembered, especially with the help of the 2012 graduating class’s senior gift.

Every year, the graduating seniors, specifically the Senior Class Council, have a task of choosing a legacy of some sort to leave behind by selecting a senior class gift. 

Meghan Litten, senior class secretary and treasurer, said the Hotty Toddy cheer is one of the best inclusive school traditions at the University of Mississippi.

The International Bottled Water Association has made plans to fight back against activists, first by launching a YouTube video titled “Student Activism: 101,” which currently has more than 25,000 views.

Dear Editor,

An article published in yesterday’s DM, “Some ASB Elections Were Won on Empty Promises” by Sean Higgins, called last weeks’ ASB elections “disappointing.”  

Some of the statements made were unfair. All of the candidates who ran for president and vice president were certainly qualified for the positions they were seeking.

Last week’s Associated Student Body elections were somewhat disappointing. Elections shouldn’t be about who can promise the student body the most freebies and handouts, but rather, the most qualified candidate should win the election.

(To be fair to my readers, it should be known that I was on the campaign teams of Mary Margaret Johnson and Kegan Coleman.)

The Associated Student Body held its presidential debate last night at the Overby Center. 

I was in attendance and found myself examining the purpose of the ASB while investigating the candidates and their key issues.

Put simply, the ASB is an student-led organization on the fourth floor of the Student Union, which aims to engage students, learn their needs and communicate those needs to our administration in hopes of making life on campus more comfortable.

After arguably the worst season in school history, new head coach Hugh Freeze won the press conference and took the first step to rebuilding the football program and uniting the fan base.

When reports started to surface, the reaction was mixed, but Freeze won over the capacity crowd at the Ford Center with his love and vision for Ole Miss, both delivered in a charismatic fashion.

Saturday’s 31-3 loss in the Egg Bowl to Mississippi State ended the Houston Nutt era in Oxford, but it also was the beginning of a new era that has nowhere to go but up.

Saturday’s 31-3 loss in the Egg Bowl to Mississippi State ended the Houston Nutt era in Oxford, but it also was the beginning of a new era that has nowhere to go but up.

Sophomore quarterback Barry Brunetti made his second start of the season against the Bulldogs and played the whole game for the Rebels. Brunetti completed 12 of 22 passes for 110 yards and ran for another 23 yards on the ground. The transfer from West Virginia was understandably frustrated after the game and is ready to get things going in the right direction with the football program.

Imagine your typical Thanksgiving. There is a perfectly cooked turkey, friends and family all around, succulent honey ham, mouth-watering stuffing and the best pecan pie you’ve ever tasted. Shouldn’t everybody have an opportunity to enjoy that? Unfortunately, not everyone gets the chance to enjoy what most of us enjoy yearly.
The Lambda Sigma chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority saw fit to spend its break in Oxford to help those who would have gone without the Thanksgiving experience this year.

In order to keep the student body aware of what is being done by their elected officials, the Associated Student Body at the University of Mississippi is giving a “State of the Union” today in front of the, you guessed it, Student Union.

The address begins at noon and will be given by ASB President Taylor McGraw, Vice President Abby Olivier and Associate Dean of Students Melinda Pullen Carlson.

Students may see some serious changes being made to the University of Mississippi’s tobacco policy in the semesters to come. With resolutions being worked on by the Associated Student Body and the Division of Student Affairs, students may see their campus take steps toward becoming smoke free.
In doing so, Ole Miss would join the ranks of other SEC schools that have smoke-free campuses, including the University of Kentucky, the University of Florida and the University of Arkansas.

Emily Stedman says law students are having trouble parking in their own lot. 

 

Gossip and hot topics always swirl around the law school at the start of the semester. 

Few of those things fervently discussed last through the first month of school, but this year, one thing has continued to be on the tongues and lips of the majority: parking. 

Our new facility cost $50 million and rumor has it the donors envisioned a parking spot for every student. But did they imagine having to share those parking spots with thousands of other commuter students? Or with Fraternity Row?

What's next for our Atheltics program? 

 

At an afternoon press conference Monday, Athletic Director Pete Boone announced that coach Houston Nutt will not return next season, and that he himself would resign in 2012.

“When coach Nutt arrived four years ago, I said publicly he would be the last coach I would hire,” Boone said. “I meant it.” 

Though Boone will retain his current position until sometime next year, he will not have a part in choosing our next head football coach.
