5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are approachable and they try to help you in any way they can. If research is wanted, they are usually accommodating in some avenues towards it. Class sizes can be from 300+, to just 10 or less people. They offer a variety of topics to choose from.

Overall Experience: The degree of pharmacy is highly prestigious at the school. They are the top in academia next to the other STEM fields there. Pharmacy is also situated at the largest building on campus aside from the Union, the Thad Cochran Research Center.

Health & Safety: Overall crime is very minimal. It usually is off campus, but it still does occur.

Greek Life: I did not participate in it. It however is very large and a lot of people do. They do do a lot of great things for the community and provide a network for later in life.

Overall Experience: Classes are good, the people are nice, and the environment is the best. You are in the middle of the hospitality that Mississippi is known for. The food in Oxford is some of the best and the experience overall is 10/10.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The atheletics at the school have produced some of the top athletes in the world. Mannings? Check. Olympians? Check.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I enjoyed the classes I took through the honors college especially. The professors who teach there are knowledgable and promote discussion. The regular classes, not so much. It is extremely obvious when a professor is new, has never taught the class before, or not very interested in the subject matter.

Overall Experience: In general, getting a job in Mississippi after graduation would be easy. It's hard to say about other states, although the farther from Mississippi or the bigger the city, a degree from Ole Miss is not as impressive as pretty much anywhere else.

Health & Safety: I have never felt in danger. A few friends have reported odd things, and those definitely do happen, but typically when someone is somewhere they shouldn't be too late at night. The police are mean to students especially on the weekends, and are quick to assume everyone is drunk and doing something bad. It probably is not super easy to sneak into a dorm. I have never noticed security at events other than sports; they would be especially useful during Recruitment when hundreds of girls are walking around late at night.

Campus Housing: I really enjoyed living on campus, which I did for three years. It is extremely convenient. The rooms and bathrooms are not necessarily the biggest or cleanest, but that is to be expected in university communal living.

Greek Life: Way too much emphasis on Greek life. I am in a sorority, and I love it, but within the organization there is drama and it is definitely not what I expected when I decided to rush. There is generally plenty of housing, especially when living in the house. Non-Greeks sometimes look down on Greeks and vice versa, the sense of equality is lacking.

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my time at Ole Miss. However I've been dissatisfied with the administration from my department to the higher up departments in charge of events such as graduation (and making sure it is possible for students to actually graduate on time). I would choose my school again assuming it was again the school that offered me the best scholarships.

4 College Senior

Athletics: School spirit is off the charts. Life at Ole Miss revolves around sports all year long. However the facilities are only slowly catching up to the spirit. Our performance as an SEC contender is better now than it was a few years ago, but we are definitely not the top. And so many out of town people come in for games, even baseball games in the middle of the week, that campus is always crowded with people who are not walking/driving to class and parking services takes our already too few parking spots for scouts and etc.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's the best. It's more space, bigger environment, real nice, and homey.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not to interested in this.

5 College Junior

Athletics: It's very interesting to what I'm used to. More activities. More things to do. Lots of fun.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: It was challenging at first, but as the days and months went by, I got used to it. Best school yet.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had hardly no problems getting in

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: This school has high school spirit

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have always felt safe on campus. There are typically police officers/security patrolling constantly. The emergency buttons scattered across campus helps as well.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors have always been extremely willing to help me and seem to genuinely care about their students. Some classes are obviously much more difficult than others, but the variety of classes provided is excellent.

Overall Experience: I feel the job/internship prospects are slightly lacking at Ole Miss, however, the career booths help a lot. I believe that more effort put into this aspect of school could significantly improve Ole Miss.

Campus Housing: My freshman year, I lived in Martin, which are the traditional dorms with the community bathrooms. The rooms were tiny and the bathrooms remained disgusting. HOWEVER, living in Martin provided me with some of the best memories of my life. I believe it encompassed the true freshman year experience that every college students wish to have. The traditional dorms with community bathrooms helped me to meet new people, as well. You always meet people in there, as strange as it sounds, and by the end of the year I knew almost my entire floor of girls. It was so much fun to leave our doors open, and everyone passing by would stop to say hello. Overall, if you can get past the small space and dirty bathrooms, I would fully recommend living in the traditional dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I love my sorority (Chi Omega), and all the great opportunities it has provided me, such as: expanding my social circle, getting more involved on campus, introduced countless volunteer/service events, etc. Of course not everyone is cut out to be involved in the Greek system, but it truly is worth considering. In my personal opinion, the only downside to Greek Life at Ole Miss is only the large size it has become. When you have 500+ girls in one organization, it becomes much harder to get to know everyone.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
