Dear Ole Miss Student and Parent,
Welcome to the JumpStart Program at Ole Miss! We in the Office of Pre-College Programs are excited that you have chosen and have been admitted to the University. Your college experience starts a new chapter in your life. It also sets the tone for future chapters as you graduate with your degree and start your professional career.
The transition from high school to college life can be overwhelming for any student. You are away from your parents. You are responsible for you and your well-being. You have new freedoms to balance with your responsibilities. You have tons of stress and pressure that you will put on yourself. You have to learn how to study, manage time, and how to ask for help!
That said, you have the support from your new Ole Miss family. The University of Mississippi offers several services that are here to help you, the student. That’s why they call it “student” services! We are here for you in some form or another 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We at JumpStart hope to provide our students with all of the study skills and on-campus connections they need to navigate their freshman year at Ole Miss. In JumpStart, no programming or guest speaker is just a filler for programming sake. All information and programming provided during a JumpStart session is carefully chosen to be beneficial to student success.
At JumpStart, our mission is to make sure our students are ready to be Ole Miss Rebels!
Director of JumpStart
