Makayla Russell, of Wesson, MS, majoring in Integrated Marketing Communications, was among the 18 students inducted into the Columns Society on April 7 at the University of Mississippi.

Founded in 2008, the Columns Society is a group of students who embody character, respect and passion for UM. These juniors and seniors represent the university at various events and welcome guests to campus. The organization is founded upon the principles of humble service, leadership and integrity.

"Our Columns Society members dedicate themselves to going above and beyond in their roles in order to serve the University of Mississippi, and I'm delighted to be able to recognize them," said Natasha Jeter, assistant vice chancellor for wellness and student success.

The University of Mississippi, affectionately known as Ole Miss, is the state's flagship university. Included in the elite group of R1: Doctoral Universities - Highest Research Activity by the Carnegie Classification, it has a long history of producing leaders in public service, academics and business. Its 16 academic divisions include a major medical school, nationally recognized schools of accountancy, law and pharmacy, and an Honors College acclaimed for a blend of academic rigor, experiential learning and opportunities for community action. Recognized among the nation's most beautiful, Ole Miss' main campus is in Oxford, which is routinely acknowledged as one of the country's best college towns.
