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.

I loved my time at the University of Mississippi. I loved the professors, most of whom would bend over backward to help you. They were funny and helpful. The campus is always beautiful year-round. One thing I do suggest is looking up the buildings your classes are in on Google maps and try to find where your classrooms are before school starts. And always make sure to make a friend or two in your classes, most students are willing to send you notes if you happen to miss a class and it would a good idea to get together and have study sessions!
Everything about Ole Miss is amazing! For the most part all professors are easy to get a hold of and are more than willing to help you. Although, the downfall is that the advisors are not the most helpful people at the university. Parking is also getting to be a giant problem as the school keeps increasing the number of students enrolled. Ole Miss is among the most beautiful campuses in the nation. I would not want to go anywhere else!
