My visit at University Of Mississippi was wonderful, the college had so much to offer for the teachers, parents, and students. All of the employees was very nice, generous, and helpful. The school is very challenging to the students to help them in the future. They have wonderful majors and minors opportunities to help them with their future goals in life. They have a lot of sports and activities for the students to enjoy on and off campus. I will be visiting again!

Ole Miss is teeming with fantastic professors (although, like with most colleges, has room for improvement), and it's not difficult to find extra help when you need it, thanks to many opportunities for tutoring, the helpful professors, and the resources available. It's a bit pricey to attend, but the scholarships offered by the school take care of quite a bit of the tuition. The dining options are currently limited, due to renovations to the Student Union, but there are food options for every taste in the two cafeterias and the various mini-restaurants scattered around campus. Housing at the university is hit-or-miss: many of the dorms are traditional and in need of updates, however there are several new contemporary dorms. The parking situation for both on- and off- campus students is in serious need of improvements. And finally, athletics (particularly football) are a huge part of Ole Miss, and every fall weekend in the Grove is a massive party to show our love for our Rebs!
This is my first year attending the University of Mississippi, and I have to say my expectations have greatly surpassed. The campus is beautiful, well-maintained, and very easy to navigate. All of my professors have been extremely professional and accommodating to new students, myself included. For anyone who is indecisive on what university to attend, I say look no farther than Ole Miss!
