We are deeply grateful to dedicated alumni and friends who support the University of Mississippi. Someone once penned the words: "Better than thanksgiving is thanksliving." Please know we are observing "thanksliving" every day by being good stewards of your gifts. We witness your gifts at work in the lives of our students as well as in the larger world. And by students, we mean our record fall 2012 enrollment of 21,528 for all campuses – the largest in Mississippi.

Your gifts are providing outstanding educational opportunities for students – opportunities that also propel Ole Miss and our state, nation and world to greater heights. We are both ecstatic and humbled by the $122.6 million in private gifts provided during fiscal year 2012. With your support, UM has been able to commit itself fully to the core principles required of a great American university: accessibility, leadership, excellence and service. Thank you for your tremendous investments. 

Happy Thanksgiving!
