University of Mississippi Reviews
The summer before senior year ensued panic, as I still had no idea where to even begin the college application process. The first (and only) college tour I took was at the University of Mississippi, and all my worries were immediately eased as I explored the campus and surrounding town of Oxford. Hearing from students and heads of departments that I was interested in both helped me decide my career path and choose what had become my dream college. Ole Miss is the only school I applied to and I could not be more excited about my choice to become a Rebel in the fall!
I love the University of Mississippi! It has one of the most beautiful campus, and you will, without a doubt, encounter a squirrel on your way to class (they are harmless, so there is nothing to be afraid of). Also, the university has a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The representatives are always willing to be of assistance to any new student, and the professors always want the best for their students. With the university being diverse, there are many organizations that you may join that can be tailored to your career interests or recreational hobbies. Another thing that I enjoyed is the tailgating that happens during the football season because the university becomes a colorful fest that you will enjoy.
The University of Mississippi was the only college, out of the twelve I applied to, that actually made it feel like it was a home away from home! The people there are what make your experience great. I have friends all over from Mississippi itself to California. The sporting events are unreal with their incredible atmosphere. The town Ole Miss is in, Oxford, is one of the cutest towns ever. There is everything from eating, bars, and shopping. I'm also really into history and I enjoy hearing about how much history there is in Oxford and at Ole Miss. Hotty Toddy!
