I personally love Ole Miss. The teachers are amazing and you always leave the semester having a story to tell about each and every teacher you've had. Game days are not even comparable. A day in The Grove during any big SEC college game day is, in no exaggeration, on some people's bucket list. The hotels are all cute and quiet and perfect for a family of any style to enjoy their time. Double Decker is our small town version of an arts music festival where the city permits open container. Not only that, but Oxford is known for having one of the most beautiful campuses. There is hardly nothing to complain about, unless you don't like good people, a good time, good food, and even better memories. Hotty Toddy!
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.
