Message from the Director

Happy Holidays, Ole Miss Families!

December is a wonderful time to be in Oxford. The university has been preparing for the holiday season since students left for Thanksgiving break. Students had the chance to ice-skate in Mississippi (a rare treat), drink hot cocoa with Santa and attend the annual tree lighting in front of the Lyceum at “Hotty Toddy Holidays,” sponsored by the Student Activities Association.

Our feature stories this month are written by the OMFA graduate students. Garrett Fischer explains 10 ways the Career Center can help your student with everything from internships to part-time jobs. Caroline “CC” Chace highlights the activities from Fall Family Weekend. We also discuss ways to help students who are undecided about their academic major.

It has been an amazing fall semester working with you. I am grateful for the relationships that I have had the opportunity to develop with each of you. I am excited to see what 2019 has in store for us! As always, the OMFA wants to continue to learn from you and assist you as your student matriculates through UM. Please don’t hesitate to call us at 662-915-7705 or email olemissfamily@olemiss.edu if you need anything.

Happy Holidays!

Merrill Magruder
OMFA Director
