As the Gulf Coast region faces the impending landfall of Hurricane Ida, we recognize that many in our university community and their loved ones will be impacted. We are deeply concerned and want to let our students, faculty, staff and alumni know that our thoughts and prayers are with all those who will be affected. The safety and well-being of the members of the Ole Miss family are of utmost importance and concern to us.
Please know we are here in this time of need and you can email firstname.lastname@example.org if we can assist you in any way. I know Ole Miss Rebels everywhere will display an overwhelming outpouring of love and support because it is a hallmark of the Ole Miss family to rally when people need support the most.
While Oxford is far removed from the coastal areas expected to feel the greatest impact of the storm, we may experience severe weather early this week as the remnants of the hurricane move inland. University and local authorities will keep close tabs on any local impact, so please stay alert for any severe weather updates.
As always, the university stands by ready to help in any way we can. Our thoughts will continue to be with all those impacted in the days to come.
