The University of Mississippi is very diversified, when comparing to the diversity of the university fifty years ago. So, what I am saying is that there are a lot of different races of people here at Ole Miss. Generally speaking, everyone is accepted regardless of their race, political background, religion, sexual orientation or economic status. However, there have been times when some students have picked on others based upon their political stance and/or sexual preference! Both of these two incidents caused the Chancellor(President) address these matters and form organizations that would prevent future incidents similar to these that may arise and help those directly affected!

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.

People at Ole Miss are a lot of fun, yet a lot of them all look/dress the same in the sense that they choose to all be alike. Most students go Greek and that seems to smother a lot of originality. Soon, they all wear the same clothes and are all mostly only interested in Greek life and events. There are always students you can find who have other interests like band, clubs, government, music, etc., but most students here tend to be consumed with their Greek life events. Social life revolves around swaps, date parties, and other Greek mixers. So it can just be hard to find people who fit your interests at first, if your interests aren't Greek. But getting involved with different things definitely helps!
