Alumni, students and fans now have a new way to stay connected to Ole Miss and take advantage of Alumni Association perks and benefits.
The official Ole Miss Alumni Association mobile device app, which launched in August on the App Store and Google Play, features real-time alerts to campus happenings, a new array of nationwide discounts, a convenient alumni events calendar and more.
“We’re proud to offer our own app to Ole Miss alumni and friends,” Executive Director Kirk Purdom (BA 93) said. “The beauty of this app is we can alert alumni not only to events on campus, but to events and discounts in their specific areas.”
Location technology available through the app helps the Alumni Association notify individual users of discounts and events close to them, Purdom said.
“The Alumni Association app will know, for instance, when users are on campus and send them text alerts about local events, traffic updates, or whatever information is most important for them to know at that moment,” Purdom said.
Alumni and friends can also join and renew their alumni memberships directly through the app, activating a virtual membership card that can be used for entry into members-only events.
“Current active members will be able to access the full suite of benefits when they log into the app for the first time,” said Steve Mullen, OMAA assistant director for marketing and membership. “For nonmembers, the benefits and other members-only benefits will activate once they join through the app.”
Other features include a convenient room reservation portal for The Inn at Ole Miss, access to the Ole Miss Alumni Review magazine and links to Alumni Association photo galleries and social media channels.
