Graduate School

The University of Mississippi

Dear Students, Friends and Colleagues,

Christy Wyandt

Welcome to the summer 2017 edition of the Graduate School newsletter. This is a special time in the life of the university; we have just graduated an outstanding group of master’s, specialist and doctoral students, and we look forward to starting all over again in the fall with new students. The summer is always a time to reflect and prepare for the future.

I am pleased that we have so many excellent students, graduate programs and alumni. It is our privilege to tell some of your stories in our newsletter. We welcome story suggestions and particularly would like to hear from and about our alumni.

In this issue, you can read about the accomplishments of Carla Cotwright-Williams, a math department alumna who works for the federal government. We also have stories about some on-campus programs, new housing for graduate students and new degree programs.

We hope you enjoy the newsletter and appreciate your support of the Graduate School at the University of Mississippi!
