Diversity: I think this can be a big issue on our campus. There have been incidents involving race and politics and I don't think it should be that way but the reality is that there is a divide.

Nightlife: I love going to the square. I am not a huge fan of the frats or the off campus parties, but the square is always a good time. I would say that the only downfall of the social scene/night life is that is gets a little repetitive after a while. I am also not a fan of the taxis. I think charging $15 for a ride to the square (which is only ever 2-5 minutes away) is extreme.

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty nice. The only thing I would change about them is to update them. The newer dorms are extremely nice, but the older dorms are gross. They are two completely different spectrums.

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of variability anywhere from 300 to 1000 a month

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Campus dining is not terrible but students get sick and tired of the same food all the time. Make sure to rotate where you eat or you'll never go back to certain places.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Drugs would have to be the only thing that UPD takes seriously. If you are caught with drugs, theres no second chances, you go to the detention center and receive a strike. If a minor is caught in possession with alcohol, it is really just a role of the dice. Very rarely will they pop you for it, the majority of them will just make you pour it out, or take it away from wherever you are. As far as dorm strictness is concerned, it really depends on the RA's or CA's on that floor, some have a no tolerance policy for it, and some will look the other way. All of my CA's have always been cool and have looked the other way or have just told me to hide whatever I have. They are students too and understand you. Unless you get a CA who is straight edge, then you're SOL

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Despite Ole Miss's stereotype for being racist because of its history. It has a large student body with students from all over the country and all over the world who share different beliefs and religions.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The party scene here at Ole Miss is the best hands down.

Campus Housing: Certain residences are better than others in different aspects. the Residential College South has to be hands down the nicest dorm on campus. We have very spacious rooms, our own bathroom and shower, and a cafeteria downstairs with unlimited meals. The Ridges are also up to par with the RC. They are slightly bigger, newer, and also have their own bathrooms and showers. Of course, these residences are more costly to live in and lack in the social atmosphere category. If a student wants a traditional dorm experience and meet lots of people, then Stockard, Kincannon, Martin, Crosby, and Brown are the right dorms for you. They do have community bathrooms and are a little smaller, but the social atmosphere is wonderful and the amount of people you will meet is unreal. If you live in the traditional living residence halls, you will most likely take part in numerous social activities that will allow you to meet a ton of people, get to know campus, and have a heads up on whats going on around campus more than the kids at the Ridges and Residential College South.

Weather: The weather blows and I hate it. Most unpredictable and miserable weather ever. It is the beginning of April and I am just now putting away my jackets and coats and boots.

Overall, students don’t want to leave Ole Miss or Oxford, even after they graduate. There are many students who choose to get additional degrees just so they don’t have to leave. The University provides almost everything one could want in a college experience. There are great sporting events that are heavily attended by the student body. There’s a hopping nightlife. There are many religions and church denominations. There’s a supportive faculty, a beautiful campus, and interesting classes. The job rate for recent graduates is very high and offers salaries that are competitive with other SEC schools.

If there’s something students say they would change about their Ole Miss experience, it’s typically that Oxford doesn’t have some of the conveniences, such as a mall, which other campuses in larger cities have. For most, this minor inconvenience is counteracted by Memphis, Tupelo, and Jackson being so close to Oxford. Many students credit Ole Miss with making them who they are and say they have fond memories that will last a lifetime from a place that remain with them forever.
