The University of Mississippi!

Dear Parents,

Carolina Orrego

Carolina Orrego

Fall is definitely here. The leaves are changing color on campus, and the weather is turning chilly. This just means our students are anxious to head home for Thanksgiving and enjoy a much needed break. Hopefully, all of your students will have a relaxing time with you and be refreshed and ready to finish out the semester.

I am keeping my letter short in this newsletter since we have a few extra features in this issue, including an article about what to expect from your students as they head home for the holidays, a profile of a student who received a Presidential Scholarship at a national convention, and a letter from some of our student leaders in response to the events that took place on our campus last week.

As always, call us, write us, and give us your feedback. We love hearing from you, and so do your students!

Warmest regards,

Carolina Orrego
Assistant Director of Enrollment Services for Orientation and Parent Programs
