Ole Miss Family Association

University of Mississippi

Message from the Director

Happy New Year from our Ole Miss family to your family! Campus has once again come alive with students returning from winter break, and exciting opportunities abound. Springtime in Oxford means beautiful weather, baseball games at Oxford-University Stadium, crawfish boils, the Big Event and, of course, graduation in May!  

With each February newsletter also comes the Fall Family Weekend announcement, and it’s a big one! Ole Miss Athletics has offered members of the OMFA discounted tickets to the Homecoming football game on Oct. 5 vs. Vanderbilt. Read more about Fall Family Weekend in this issue. 

The February issue also includes articles about OMFA’s inaugural Spring Family Reunion, the Center for Inclusion and Cross Cultural Engagement and its slate of Black History Month events, and how to communicate with your student about healthy relationships, safe sex and abstinence. 

The OMFA is here to make sure you have the resources you need to support your students throughout college. Please do not hesitate to call the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs (662-915-7705) if you have additional questions or need guidance on a particular subject. I look forward to hearing from all of you and continuing to stay in touch. 

Hotty Toddy!

Merrill Magruder
OMFA Director
