University of Mississippi Reviews
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!
The University of Mississippi is a home. It's where you create strong friendships and enjoy adult life on training wheels! I love Ole Miss for it's culture, experience, and the fun I have there. My education and degree are the top priority but making friends and enjoying college is also very important. I would recommend Ole Miss to everyone. Oxford is a home, and the people you will meet there make it even better!
