Haile Cambliss portrait.

Why did you choose to attend UM?

I chose to attend Ole Miss due to the wonderful impression that it gave me the first time I looked into it and it definitely lived up to it! Not only is Ole Miss a wonderful academic school, but it is also a second home to most students who come here. It has a wonderful atmosphere that makes everyone here feel like family. I am so grateful that I chose Ole Miss and I will be doing graduate school here as well.

When and why did you choose your major/minor?

I chose to major in Public Health due to it being such a broad field. There are many different parts of healthcare you can go into when you have a public health degree. It prepares you for careers such as medicine, nursing, research, epidemiology, health specialist, health education, and even more. This led me to choose this major because I will never be tied to only one career.

What are your career goals?

I plan to become a physician and work in a public health facility while also doing public health advocacy.

Dr. Zigmont

Why is your department a special place?
