The University of Memphis Will Open at Lambuth on August 27

MEMPHIS, TN --  The University of Memphis will begin offering classes at what was formerly Lambuth University in Jackson, Tenn., on Saturday, August 27, the official start of the University’s fall 2011 semester. 

The University of Memphis has had a presence in Jackson since 1955.  Since then thousands of students have obtained their college education at least partly through the University’s classes taught at Jackson State Community College.   All classes formerly taught at JSCC, as well as new course offerings, will now be taught at the Lambuth location.

In announcing the University’s increased presence in Jackson, President Shirley Raines said, “We are honored to be able to offer more educational opportunities as a public university to the citizens of Jackson and West Tennessee.  Lambuth University has given its students and alumni a great legacy, and the University of Memphis will continue, and will build upon, Lambuth’s fine educational reputation.”

For students planning to attend classes in Jackson this fall, information sessions will be held August 9 from 5 to 8 p.m. and August 10 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Students will be able to meet individually with academic advisers and representatives from admissions, financial aid, housing and other U of M offices.  Both sessions will be held in the Jack Morris Ballroom of the Wilder College Union building on the Lambuth campus.

Those who cannot attend the information sessions or who would like more information may email, or call 731-427-4725 or 901-678-5087.
