The University of Mississippi School of Law was ranked among the top 10 best value law schools on Oct. 17 by the media organization On Being a Black Lawyer (OBABL).

Last year, the decision was made to move the The University of Mississippi’s math lab from Kinard Hall to room A01 in the Jackson Avenue Center, otherwise known as the old Walmart building, due to Kinard having inadequate space for students.

University of Mississippi biology doctoral student Tim Colston departed last week for Africa.

Ole Miss will be facing off with one of the Southeastern Conference’s most powerful offenses in Arkansas this weekend. The Rebels (4-3, 1-2 SEC) will be forced to stop senior quarterback Tyler Wilson, who leads the SEC in passing yards per game (326.2 ypg), and senior receiver Cobi Hamilton, who leads the SEC in receiving yards per game (107.7 ypg).

Double teams are usually reserved for veteran defensive linemen who have both the physical presence and a multitude of pass-rushing moves to beat an offensive lineman in different ways. 
With that said, you can imagine Issac Gross’ surprise when Auburn came out and put double teams on the undersized but quick freshman defensive tackle. 

The Southeastern Conference rolled out its 2013 football schedule this past Thursday. And upon first glance, it appears SEC commissioner Mike Slive had it out for the Rebels when he and his minions pieced together Ole Miss’ ’13 schedule.

When junior outside hitter Kara Morgan sat out the loss to Alabama last month with an ankle injury, it was apparent that the success of the Lady Rebels volleyball team depended on Morgan’s successes on the court. 

As the Ole Miss women’s soccer regular season comes to an end, it’s also nearing the end for the three Lady Rebel seniors, midfielders Alix Hildal and Meghan O’Rourke and defender Emily Sinovich.

The second presidential debate Tuesday night featured two candidates with remarkably similar ideals, nitpicking over taxes and practically nothing else.
While what President Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said might have had a large effect on the election, the lack of any other candidates makes an enormous difference, for the worse. Without opening the debates to potentially viable third party candidates, the U.S. will make very little progress in creating a better tomorrow.

Ole Miss announced on Saturday that women’s basketball head coach Adrian Wiggins was placed on administrative leave and two of his staff members, Kenya and Michael Landers, were terminated, in light of an ongoing joint investigation between Ole Miss and the NCAA over “impermissible recruiting contacts and academic misconduct.”

Fresh off an open week, Ole Miss is now focused on preparing for Saturday’s game against Arkansas in Little Rock. 
The Razorbacks faced some early season struggles, but the Rebels will face a different, more confident team on Saturday, according to Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze. 

Every year, university faculty review members of The University of Mississippi’s administrative staff. Each individual staff member, however, is only reviewed once every four years. The positions examined include department chairs, directors, associate or assistant directors, academic deans, provost/vice chancellor for academic affairs and a host of other administrators.

Mississippi became the first state to join a lawsuit filed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Oct. 10.

Political science professor Miguel Centellas said he sometimes wonders why Ole Miss celebrated 50 Years of Integration. He observed how whites and blacks sit on separate sides in the Student Union, how they cluster together while tailgating at the Grove and last week he counted only three black people on the Square.

At the beginning of the fall semester at an Associated Student Body retreat, President Kimbrely Dandridge asked members what frustrated students the most. The answer: parking.
