  • Local poet, author feature of Brain Jam

    COLUMBUS—A local author, poet and librarian will be the feature speaker of Dr. D’s Brain Jam Sunday, Aug. 25 at 6 p.m.

    C.T. Salazar hopes to shed light on the fastest-growing sub-genre in American Literature in “Chicano Voices in the 21st Century.”

    “The discussion will be focused on what Chicano literature is doing today: how’s it’s responding to hate rhetoric and how it’s wrestling with ideas of American-ness. The Brain Jam will be a conglomeration of lecture, open discussion and poetry performance,” said Salazar.

    Salazar is the author of “This Might Have Meant Fire.” His poems have been featured in Beloit Poetry Journal, The Cincinnati Review, RHINO, Grist, 32 Poems and the Tampa Review. He holds a master's degree in fine arts in creative writing from Mississippi University for Women and is an incoming candidate for a masters of library and information science at the University of Southern Mississippi.

    Dr. D’s Brain Jam is a series that hopes to provide entertaining and educational topics to connect experts with the community.

    Brain Jam is held at Three Sisters Pie Co. 422 Main Street, Columbus, Mississippi. The series is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored by The W’s Department of History, Political Science and Geography and Three Sister Pie Co.

    In September, Dr. D’s Brain Jam will feature local poet Dr. Travis Hagey Sept. 29 at 6 p.m.

    For more information, please email Dr. Kristi DiClemente, assistant professor of History at The W, at kdiclemente@muw.edu.

  • Blues Week continues with Late Nite at Rec

    Columbus, Miss.- The Blues Week excitement continues with a busy Tuesday night.

    At 6 p.m., the Second Annual Late Nite at the Rec sponsored by the Office of Development and Alumni will kick off a fun-filled slate of activities.

    “Tonight's open house, Late Nite at the Rec, is about the students getting to know their campus recreation,” said Melissa Parsons, associate director, business, student & member services for the Office of Campus Recreation. “We encourage all to come out to get a bird’s eye view of what will appeal to them. Where some may want to jump in on our Glow POUND, others might feel more comfortable on a weight bench participating in our Bench Press competition. Either way, we're excited to open the doors and offer a fun night of camaraderie and activities.”

    The event, which will feature Meet the Owls from all of the schools’ sports teams, will kick off in Pohl Gymnasium.

    After that, everyone is encouraged to make their way to the Stark Recreation Center (at street level) for an open house at 7 p.m. The open house will feature a fun night of activities and prize winning opportunities.

    This year, students will have an opportunity to get cards and participate in basketball (Pohl Gymnasium), volleyball (Stark Gymnasium), racquetball (Stark racquetball court), table tennis (atrium), billiards (atrium), track run (second floor in Pohl), dance (atrium), soccer (Pohl), Glow POUND (Stark aerobic studio at 7:30 p.m.), and bench press (at front of strength and conditioning room).

    Students also will be able to check out “The Cage,” which is the new functional fitness room in the Stark Recreation Center. The students will check off each area they participate in to be entered into a drawing for prizes.

    Following the event, Residence Housing’s Project Neon will be at 9 p.m. Prizes will be handed out prior to Project Neon. Winners must be present.

  • Safety tips offered to students, community

    COLUMBUS, Miss. -- Randy Vibrock wants all Mississippi University for Women students to be safe.

    As The W’s chief of police, he has a few reminders and suggestions to offer new and returning students and everyone on campus.

    “If you’re new to the campus, we want the students to become familiar with their surroundings and the campus,” Vibrock said. “If they’re from a different city or state, we would suggest the students become familiar with the city (of Columbus) layout as well. You don’t want to get lost in a place you’re uncomfortable with or that puts you in an unsafe condition.”

    Students officially return to The W Saturday morning for Move-In Day. The event leads up to the first day of classes Thursday, Aug. 22. As students take part in Blues Week activities and familiarize themselves with the campus and the city of Columbus, Vibrock wants everyone to know The W’s police department is available to protect them and to serve them any way it can.

    “If your vehicle needs to receive a jump and you are in a parking lot, which parking lot are you in?” Vibrock said. “What building are you next to? Our response time is going to be that much quicker if you know where you are instead of us having to find you.”

    That may seem like common sense, but Vibrock encourages all students to be mindful of their surroundings. The police department is always patrolling the campus, but he said individuals play a big part in their own safety by paying attention – day or night – to what is going on around them.

    If students have any issues finding their way around campus, maps of the campus are available online at muw.edu and in the University Relations office in Stovall House. There are also signs on campus that detail the names of the buildings, he added.

    Vibrock said members of his staff will provide walking assistance for students on campus. He also said the Night Owls program provides transportation for students, faculty and staff from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week. Anyone who would like a ride should call the police department, state their name and their location and have their IDs ready for the student driver to take them where they want to go.

    “An officer’s two primary responsibilities are to protect and to serve,” Vibrock explained. “Fortunately, we don’t have to do too much protecting here because things here are typically pretty calm and safe, so we really get to focus on our serving.”

    With so much going on campus, Vibrock encourages students to use good judgment.

    “Typically a good rule of thumb is if it is somewhere you wouldn’t go or if it is something you wouldn’t do back home Monday night at 2 a.m., don’t do it on campus.”

    The police department’s traffic office in McDevitt Hall is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Officers are on campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Emergency dispatchers are located in the welcome building at the main gate. They answer the telephones round the clock.

    Additional general safety tips shared by Vibrock:
    •    Report suspicious activity; report in a timely manner
    •    Be aware of your surroundings at all times; don’t be distracted by your cell phone
    •    Walk on well-lit/commonly used walkways
    •    Avoid walking alone if possible
    •    Pedestrians should always use crosswalks
    •    Become familiar with the layout of campus and the city
    •    Always secure your residence and vehicle
    •    Keep valuables secured and out of plain view

    If anyone on campus needs assistance or has an emergency, you can reach The W Police Department at (662) 241-7777, or call 911.

  • ‘Prime time’ motivator

    Sidney Stewart knows how to get the word out.

    Even though Stewart is pursuing a double major of political science and legal studies at Mississippi University for Women, she easily could pass for a marketing or a communications student.

    “I would definitely say I am a people person,” said Stewart, a junior from Winfield, Alabama. “I have had people on campus tell me they can hear me before they see me.”

    Stewart will put those people skills to use again this year during The W’s Blues Week, which will serve as the official welcome and start of the 2019-20 school year. Stewart will work again as a resident adviser and will help organize the Rave, a dance party with a DJ, at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20, at the Stark Recreation Center back yard.

    Two years ago, the Rave was held indoors. Last year, it was held in the fenced-in area outside of the Rec Center. While Stewart acknowledges it was hot, she enjoyed the atmosphere with 100-150 students. She hopes to help publicize the event as much as she can in the next few weeks so even more students experience one of the most fun parts of Blues Week.

    “It definitely was a proud moment when you sit back and see what you helped create and contributed to and how we were able to bring smiles to peoples’ faces,” Stewart said of the 2018 Rave. “It also is a sweet moment because I look back and remember who my Blues Week leaders were when I was a freshman and you get happy because you’re making that same impact.”

    Stewart called Blues Week “prime time” because it is about meeting people and making new friends. She said her personality allows her to meet new people all of the time, but she said she gets to do that during Blues Week more than any other time of the year because there are so many things going on.

    Blues Week isn’t the only time Stewart meets new people. As president of the Troubadour Social Club, she said she also enjoys meeting new students and telling them about the social clubs at The W and the myriad opportunities to get involved. Stewart also holds a position on the Residence Hall Association executive board, so she will be busy in the next month making sure all of the details are covered for Blues Week. Until then, Stewart will be busy spreading the word about the Rave and everything on the Blues Week schedule.

    “These next two years being a part of Blues Week I hope to continue to get better reaching out to people and getting them involved because they might be hesitant to get involved,” Stewart said. “At the Rave, you’re not supposed to know everybody, or even anybody, but at the end of the night the important part is you leave knowing more people than you knew when you showed up.”

    There will be training for Blues Week from 1-5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15, in the Cochran Limbert Assembly Room. Blues Week will kick off at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, with Move-In Day. Activities and events will run through Friday, Aug. 23. A schedule for Blues Week will be available at www.muw.edu. Classes start Thursday, Aug. 22.

    This year, the Taste of the Town Food Fair joins other activities like the Shaving Cream Fight (4:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 18, at the Gazebo) and Meet the Owls (6 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 20, at Pohl Gymnasium) to provide a mix of traditional and new ideas as part of Blues Week.

    If anyone is interested in volunteering, the Office of Housing and Residence Life is looking for more volunteers to help welcome students back to campus from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17. If you are interested, contact Andrew Moneymaker, director of Housing and Residence Life, at amoneymaker@muw.edu.

  • W graduates encouraged to care, be great

    COLUMBUS, Miss.-- The Mississippi Board of Nursing Executive Director Phyllis Polk Johnson addressed Mississippi University for Women graduates at today’s commencement.

    Johnson began by drawing inspiration from Eleanor Roosevelt, first lady of the United States 1933-1945. Quoting Roosevelt, Johnson said, “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’”

    She emphasized that each new life experience is an opportunity to better one’s self.

    “I gain confidence when I have completed a task and I’ve done it to the best of my ability. Those wins remind me that I can take the next thing that comes along,” explained Johnson.

    She reminded the soon-to-be graduates that they have learned, earned and deserve to be celebrated for completing, “this giant leap.”

    While students might have learned technical terms and strategies that may propel them to the top of their profession, Johnson hoped most of all that they learned to care.

    She added, “Caring educators create better learning environments. Caring healthcare professionals create better healthcare outcomes. Caring business leaders create better economics in which to live.  Caring political leaders create better living environments for our families.”

    Johnson continued with the words of Martin Luther King Jr., “Not everybody can be famous. But everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service…”

    In closing, Johnson advised the graduates, “Whatever your chosen profession is--do it to the best of your ability. Serve those people in your charge. Serve them with a joyous heart and a willing spirit. Love what you do, and you will never work a day in your life. Serve your community.”   

    A native of Carthage, Johnson attended South Leake High School in Walnut Grove, where she graduated as salutatorian of her class. She received her bachelor of science of nursing, graduating cum laude from The W. She also earned her master of science in nursing degree from The W. She attended Jackson State University, earning her master of science degree in biology with an emphasis in genetics and molecular biology.

    Johnson is a member of several professional organizations, including the Mississippi Association of Nurse Practitioners, Mississippi Nurses Association, American Nurses Association and Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society.

    She served on the Licensure Compact Executive Committee Board of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.  In July 2018, she was selected as one of the 50 Leading Business Women in the state of Mississippi by the Mississippi Business Journal. This culminated in her being selected as the 2019 Mississippi Business Journal Business Woman of the Year in February 2019. In 2013, she retired from the United States Navy Reserves at the rank of commander.  She is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., where she is active in the Jackson Mississippi Alumnae Chapter.

    Approximately 379 candidates applied for August graduation. Conferring of degrees for graduates of the College of Arts, Sciences and Education, the College of Business and Professional Studies and the College of Nursing and Health Sciences began at 2 p.m. in Rent Auditorium, Whitfield Hall.
