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!
Review Your College
Ole Miss is rich in history and that is very apparent right when you step on campus. The campus is beautiful and every day walking to class I always am proud that I go to school here. Every professor I had so far is focused on helping you succeed. Every professor is extremely knowledgeable. However being from out of state the school took a few months to get acclimated to, but there are clubs and organizations to join to help any homesickness feeling disappear! Otherwise, the school is absolutely fantastic.
The diversity here is amazing! I've met many different people from around the world. There's not much to do outside of campus besides eat, shop, or go to the movies and bowling. However, the campus does hold a fair amount of events to attend. I like that the campus is pretty small, so the buildings aren't too spread out. The professors all have their own personalities. The education here varies depending on who you take and how you perceive their teachings.
