  • Annual dues are currently $25.

What is our purpose?

What do we do?

  • From our dues and special contributions, we fund a book scholarship for one of the University Scholars attending the University of Mississippi.

“Joining the Dames is a great way to network on campus, meet new friends, have fun, and learn more about Oxford and the University.” — A Recent New Member
