Overall Experience: Ole miss has been a great experience. In order to get the full experience its easentially mandatory to get involved which makes you a more well rounded person and student. The teachers are very helpful if you go to them and communicate with them throughout each semester. There are additional classes in the summer and inter sessions to really help you advance your academics.

Overall Experience: I love Ole Miss but there are times I wonder if I made the right decision in my college choice. It can be hard to find a group of friends here if you do not get involved in a lot and if you get involved in too much your grades plummet!

Overall Experience: In my personal opinion, Ole Miss is a great university with a lot to offer. It has an amazing campus in the small town of Oxford Ms. Oxford's town square offers many restaurants, shops and bars which are all located within walking distance of each other. The university's athletic program has continued to progress into an SEC powerhouse. This has led to an many imporovements to all of athletic facilities (stafiums, practice facilities, etc).

Overall Experience: I've had a great overall experience at school so far. Being in the early entry pharmacy program has already gotten me plugged into the Ole Miss community, and joining the different organizations, such as the BSU, has given me a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and invest in the lives of the international students that are on campus. Though Ole Miss does not boast of the highest or most prestigious university in the nation, it is a community that cultivates relationships that will last for a lifetime.

Overall Experience: I am only about to be a Freshman, but I know I committed to going to a great school and probably the best school for my current major. The people at Ole Miss are basically I have seen them reach out to one another even if they don't know who the other person is. I am very pleased with my current impression of Ole Miss as well as my expectations because I know this school will go above and beyond my expectations.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I've only been here in the summer for four weeks but I know I've made the right decision coming to Ole Miss. We are not known as a huge academic school which may be due to the lack of essay recommendation just to be admitted as well as the low GPA minimum but so many people are unaware of what all Ole Miss has to offer such as the Sally Mcdonnell Barksdale Honors College, one of the best in the country, as well as being one of twelve schools in the nation that has the Chinese Language Flagship Program, Ole Miss being the best one. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. Being the youngest of three children and only female, naturally my mother was worried about my safety being away from home. She was very relieved to hear that Ole Miss was ranked number one safest school in the SEC and number ten in the nation. I think that's what makes Ole Miss so unique. It's known more for sports rather than academics but when you look closely, it's a diamond in the rough. I am so glad I choose Ole Miss.

Overall Experience: Honestly I couldn't have chosen a better university to attend. From the quaint southern town of Oxford to the beautiful campus that surrounds Ole Miss I've never seen such a gorgeous place! The people that go to Ole Miss are some of the most kind-hearted people I have ever met in my entire life. Plus tailgating in The Grove every Saturday in the fall ain't so bad either!

Off-Campus Housing: Great selection of off-campus housing. Though it can get a bit expensive, it's worth the money. Apartments complexes are beautiful in Oxford.

Party Scene: Ole Miss party scene has almost unlimited options. There's usually always something going on besides during finals week, of course.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Many great local and unique restaurants to choose from as well as many chain restaurants/fast food.

Administration: Ole Miss is very strict in their dorms. Absolutely no alcohol in the rooms and visitors aren't allowed to stay after 12 A.M. on weekdays and 2 A.M. on weekends. Though my dorm seemed to be more lenient and the C.As tended to be more understanding, I've heard other dorms were much more strict.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Though not many healthy options, the food is decently eatable and the PODs are great if you have Flex. It would be better if you could by a whole meal with only Plus 1 instead of using both Plus 1 and your Flex dollars.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It took a little while and a few visits to the financial aid office to get everything sorted out but in the end everything went well.

Campus Housing: Everything is close when living on campus. Food, the grove, the square, social activities, etc. Dorms are clean and the campus is beautiful.

Campus Food: The food and dining options are not always healthy. Try introducing more healthy things to students rather than just salads. The only healthy things provided are fruit that isnt always fresh and salads. Never once was quinoa offered or any other healty option.

Scholarships: Try not to rely mostly on a student's ACT/SAT score

Athletics: Students are very involved in athletics. Most students go to baseball and football games. Our student gym is not the nicest however, the athletics gym is very nice I hear!

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is amazing! I love it. I have more independence and my own space. The cost is not too bad depending on where you live as well as if you have your own furniture. Most places in here are very safe! In fact Oxford is pretty safe in general. Here in Oxford you look ahead of time because the good deals can go very fast unless you know someone.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: I love going to the square. It is so beautiful and the night life is so fun!! Most of the bars on the square are great. The party scene can have an impact on students experience, but it is important for it to not negatively effect it.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The food here is great! However, living in a smaller town there is not as many options. The costs are not too high at all they are fairly reasonable.

4 College Junior

Administration: I think the strictness at Ole Miss is very good. They have come up with plans put in place for a reason and for the most part they are effective. However, there are always flaws in a system.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Well, when I was in college and live on campus which was from 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 food options were not as good. So all of my opinions come from when choices for places to eat on campus were limited. We did not have as many options and when we did have a good choice-- which was subway the line as always long. Other than subway the food was not healthy.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: My first two years of college I lived on campus. There I made some of my best friends. I feel it was important for me to live on campus. The reason is the social aspect. I got to meet new people. Also it was so close to all my classes and I learned my way around campus easily because I walked everywhere. As far as cost, it was less expensive than living in an apartment.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots to choose from, but after 4 years, you get tired of it. Wish even some of the bigger chains were here.

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.
