In 2005, thanks to a $2.5 million gift over five years from FedEx, the University of Mississippi was able to build the FedEx Student-Athlete Academic Support Center in 2007.  This building provides a state-of-the-art facility for student-athletes at Ole Miss to be able to get on top of their schoolwork, and balance academics with the time demands of their respective sports.

The FedEx Center is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every weekday and on Sundays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.  Various staff members in charge of each individual sport, and that particular team's academic standing, make up the facility's Academic Support Staff.
