Greetings Graduate Alumni,
My name is Nicholas Keeling, and I assumed the office of Graduate Student Council (GSC) president in the second week of April. I am currently a first-year student in the Master of Science pharmacy administration program and received my undergraduate degrees in economics and music performance from the University of Mississippi in 2010. This past year I have served as co-director of social and philanthropic affairs for the GSC, coordinating social events such as our Spring Coffee and Donut Social and Back to School Grove Party, both of which were a big success. In recent weeks, we focused our efforts on the annual Rock the Bus campaign, which took place April 5 and benefited Mississippi Teacher Corps through school-supply donations.
Being a part of the GSC has been a gratifying experience and, in part, led me to run for the office of president. We are working on some great things including, but definitely not limited to, a GSC strategic plan for the upcoming academic year, new partnerships with university offices and a new website that we hope to be a one-stop information source for all graduate students. I am excited with the direction of the GSC as a whole and am embracing the challenges the next year will hold.
I would like to thank our outgoing president, Tristen Jackson. He has provided able and consistent leadership that has had a noticeably positive impact on the image of the GSC. The incoming Executive Council, Senate and I will strive to continue and build upon this excellent work.
We deeply appreciate your dedication to the Ole Miss Graduate School. If you ever have any questions or suggestions that you believe could enhance the lives of our students, please feel free to email me at any time.
