One of the three newest residence halls on The University of Mississippi campus will have a new name in the coming weeks after the state college board of trustees approved the university’s request.

North Ridge, one of the three new freshman residence halls that were built within the last year, will be renamed after 1937 Ole Miss graduate Lucian Minor.

“We are currently in the process of scheduling a dedication ceremony,” said Larry Sparks, vice chancellor of administration and finance at Ole Miss. “Also during this time, the exact name of the dorm will be nailed down.”

University Trails resident and University of Mississippi student DJ Gregory has started a petition to promote more advanced security after several break-ins and a student being held at gunpoint a few weeks ago.

University Trails resident and University of Mississippi student DJ Gregory has started a petition to promote more advanced security after several break-ins and a student being held at gunpoint a few weeks ago.

“These apartment complexes are so close to the campus and historic Oxford Square, yet there is still so much crime and very little protection of students and residents,” said Gregory, a junior political science major.

He was a victim of a break-in a couple months ago and said $800 worth of electronics were stolen. He said he found the security unacceptable.

Every night before bed 21- year old Jori LaVoy washes her face, brushes her teeth and then proceeds to do something that few other college students do- she takes first of 13 pills to control her ulcerative colitis.

 

For many students, college is an important first step in growing up, experiencing freedom and learning how to manage one’s time. For LaVoy, however, that transition was made much harder when she was diagnosed with a severe case of ulcerative colitis during the fall of her junior year.

That should be the lesson that we take away from the heightened discussion of racism on our campus.
The Daily Mississippian, student leaders, and faculty and staff have all published or made outward statements to address the issue of race at the University of Mississippi. It has certainly been a topic of conversation in the past months coupled with the 50 years of integration, ESPN’s “30 for 30: Ghosts of Ole Miss,” and the recent issues erupting after the presidential election. The question is, what happens now?
