What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Mississippi, better known as Ole Miss, is an infamous school in the United States of America. Named "The Biggest Party School in the Nation" more than once in the past few decades has given Ole Miss a reputation. Not only has the students' tendencies for a good time given the school a bad name, but its athletic history has not done much to repair the school's reputation. Throughout Ole Miss's history, it has survived a fluctuation of bad-good-great-terrible sports records, but it has also suffered at the hands of those who held leadership positions within the athletics department. Throughout the Southeastern Conference, and possibly throughout America, Ole Miss is known for its corruption in sports. And while many people think they know Ole Miss, they do not know the University of Mississippi. These two titles, while they name the same entity, are two completely different things. Ole Miss represents an idea- the idea of a good time, whether it be drinking and watching a football game. Ole Miss represents the idea of unbreakable brotherhood and community. But the University of Mississippi- this is a foundation. This is the backbone of everything red and blue, of everything "Hotty Toddy" and of everything "Hell Yeah, Damn Right". The University of Mississippi is the academic side of this flagship university. The University of Mississippi is what bred the idea of Ole Miss. The University of Mississippi is my personal favorite taste of this experience. The scholarship found within this campus is surreal and unlike any other knowledgeable experience I have ever felt. The deep desire to learn and grow is breathtaking. I don't simply mean the 4.0 GPA crazed students found in the library (the reading library- not the bar Library), but I mean the students outside protesting for what they feel is unjust. I mean the students who are up at 4 am searching for William Faulkner's grave to complete the freshmen bucket list. I mean the students who stand on Business Row in the freezing cold or beating sun to recruit you for their organization or to simply give "Free Hugs" for mental health. These students are here to learn and grow and become the best person they can be. And that is what I love about the University of Mississippi. This place is my home. This place has graced me with more knowledge and growth than the previous eighteen years of my life has provided. I have found myself, and I love her. I guess that is my overall opinion of the University of Mississippi- its that she is both gracious and vicious, she gives and she takes. She wants us to learn and loves for us to party. This school is the best decision I ever made.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As with any educational institution change is always a necessary component. However, regardless of these aspects, the University of Mississippi is an excellent university that provides students with ample opportunities to express themselves, grow, learn, and of course tailgate. I believe that what makes the University of Mississippi stand out the most is the sense of community. Each and every one of the students and faculty members offer warm welcomes to newcomers, guests, and all the people they meet. The University of Mississippi is more than a university; it is a home. Red and blue truly do course down veins.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy the campus, food, culture, etc. It's a very welcoming environment and the professors are great as long as you do the research and get ones with a good rating. Your experience is how you make it. Rebel market (the cafeteria) offers a lot of variety as well as the union (chick-fil-a, panda express, which-wich?, qudoba, and mcalistors)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have found my new home. The new people in my life are like family, and they care about me. I have found the perfect class size for me, and a wonderful sorority that supports me. I'm always excited to welcome my family and friends to visit so that everyone can experience the beauty and everything that makes The University of Mississippi so special. I would recommend this university to all my friends!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am absolutley obsessed with this campus. While we are a SEC Conference school, we really are not that big of a campus. Every place on campus is easily accessible by any form of transportation. So you get the best of both worlds really. This campus is also extremely clean, within 24 hours of a home game the campus is back to normal and there is not much proof that there even was a game.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Because I use to hear that the school was very racist, I decided to take a tour and see for myself. As soon as I stepped onto campus, I immediately loved it. They have a variety of organizations for the black community which connected with me very well. The people who are involved in the different organizations encourage you to the fullest to be apart of those organizations because you do not want to be always in your room wishing you never came to the college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great university. It has its problems like any other school but it is still a great place to go. There is always something to do. The free T-shirts are plentiful. You can always find a quiet space to chill on campus. For the most part, the professors will help you as long as you are trying. Lastly, game day is sacred. Saturday's down south are no joke.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Mississippi is an overall good school; there are tons of clubs for students to partake in. But I feel like more attention goes towards sports, especially football, than to academics. I like the classes that I’ve taken here so far, but you will find some apathetic students in some classes, just like you will in other university settings. The on-campus food, in my opinion, is rather limited. The choices do get kind of dull after awhile, especially if you eat on campus often. The food choices mainly lean towards unhealthy items such as Raising Canes, Steak n’ Shake, Papa John’s, etc, but there are some healthy food options. Freshii is a healthy food choice, but it is a little expensive. Rebel market is so-so, slightly leaning more towards the not so good category. I find some administrative offices to be rather slow with processing things. The Study Abroad Office takes a rather long time to process your study abroad credit hours, if you’ve studied abroad, and they also have to send your documents to Ventress Hall where you have to wait even longer for your credits to transfer. I’d say if you would like to attend university in a small, Southern town, then by all means come to Ole Miss, but if you want something maybe a little bit bigger then maybe look at other schools. Also, many students here participate in Greek life, but I wouldn’t let that make you feel left out if you choose to not participate in it. There are other ways to meet people on this campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Everyone's experiences with this campus will vary, of course. It took me about a year to finally feel okay up here and find a better apartment. (hint: check out everything about the apartment before you sign). If you are content in staying in one town and not having to travel for an airport, your relationship, entertainment, etc. Then maybe Oxford is your city. I grew up in a place with a beach, airport, small nightlife, way better food, 4-5 cities strung together into a coastal area, so it is very hard to compare life down there to up here. There is limited nightlife to the square and the string of restaurants on Jackson Ave that mostly all close by 10, except fillups on the square and fast food on Jackson. If you can't live without Waffle House at 2 am, I hate to break it to you, but this is not your place to go to school. When picking a college, it is every bit as important to also know what town, city or village you are also picking. I will give Ole Miss the academics are really challenging, so if that is what you are looking for I highly recommend especially if you want to work in a research lab. There truly are some fantastic programs here, but also know you're signing up for a dense small-town America. Another thing I have been very impressed with and happy about since arriving on campus is the number of international students that study here for a semester or year(s). I hope the university continues increasing their numbers as it not only helps students here broaden their perspectives, but this also opens doors to friendships and opportunities between internationals and UM students.
