Dear Ole Miss Alumni and Friends,
Kudos! Since our last update, the alumni/friends campaign’s total has reached more than 60 percent of its goal in the Chancellor Jones initiative. The campaign – which honors our outgoing chancellor for his superb contributions – has now raised $605,162 from 186 alumni and friends toward the overall $1 million goal. Your gifts not only pay tribute to Dr. Jones but they also provide crucial faculty support on the Oxford campus.
Please take a look at the donor wall on all three ongoing campaigns for alumni and friends, faculty, and staff. Our heartfelt thanks go to the Ole Miss Alumni Association and Archie and Olivia Manning for their new gifts to this worthy endeavor!
Ole Miss is the flagship university in Mississippi. “Flagship” has traditionally meant the first university of its kind. We are also the largest university in the state, making history with the recent sizes of our freshman classes. However, we have earned national recognition for our strong academic programs, unique college experiences, successful athletics programs, magnificent campus, and loyal alumni and friends. To remain in this preeminent position, alumni and friends must step forward with gifts to enhance resources available to recruit and retain outstanding faculty members – gifted teachers who will mentor and prepare the next generations of Ole Miss graduates and leaders.
Be a proud Ole Miss Rebel and give back! Recall all the exceptional experiences and special relationships coming from Ole Miss through the years, and make it a point to ensure others have these amazing opportunities! We need your gift, whatever the size … we need you to participate today!
In addition, you can help by sharing this campaign with family, friends and colleagues, using the hashtag #WAOM (We Are Ole Miss) or #IStandWithDan.
Gosh Almighty! Thank you for your dedication and involvement!
