We are thrilled to announce that Homecoming at Mississippi University for Women is scheduled for March 28-31, 2019. Alums and friends of The W are encouraged to join the Long Blue Line in enjoying the many activities scheduled at our beloved alma mater.
Once again, the MUW Alumni Association (MUWAA) will be hosting the LONG BLUE LINE AUCTION (LBLA) on the evening of Friday, March 29th. We ask all alumni and friends to assist in making the auction a success by partnering with us as an LBLA Donor or Sponsor. The LBLA raised another record amount in 2018, exceeding $21,000.00 in proceeds, which allowed full endowment of the MUWAA Legacy Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to an exceptional family member of an alumna/us who has been admitted to MUW as a new, full-time student.
Proceeds from the 2019 LBLA will fund Faculty Enhancement Grants designed to enrich the educational and professional activities of faculty members and the New Faculty Award, which is given to a new faculty member to recognize his/her work supporting the academic mission of The W. Each grant, award and scholarship is important and plays a pivotal part in The W’s continued academic success. Auction proceeds will also be used to fund additional activities of the MUWAA.
Please consider donating art, gift certificates, pottery, products, services, travel spots or vintage You may also consider becoming an LBLA Sponsor. Sponsors are needed to help the MUWAA continue the tradition of honoring academic excellence. The sponsorship provides recognition for both businesses and individuals prior to and during the auction through a mobile bidding platform that will be used by auction attendees. Recognition is also provided online to an international audience of alumni and supporters via social media advertising. Signage at the auction will denote sponsors as well.
