The Mississippi Delta is a region of dichotomies. A visit to the area reveals wealth and extreme poverty, college campuses and illiteracy, historical and cultural importance and modern development. One could go on and on.

As I walked through Central Park on a dreary Saturday afternoon, I began to miss my Mississippi home. The trees reminded me of my backyard and I yearned for a sweet Southern breeze. 

A sweet breeze is hard to come by in NYC. In a place so congested and fast-paced, the serenity of home is all but lost.

In an unprecedented move a few weeks ago, the University announced that most non-freshman students must relocate to off-campus housing next semester to accommodate the hoards of new students attending the University of Mississippi in the fall.

As could be expected, many current students are outraged at the decision, having to make other living arrangements on such short notice. Although many students had not planned on staying on campus next year anyway, many other students are unexpectedly being forced to find off-campus housing.

Most students know that housing changes are evident in the future of the University. If you don’t know, I suggest checking Ole Miss Today once in a while.
