4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All the professors in my major's courses have been excellent. The non-majors are mostly fine.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Career opportunities are very easy to come by in my experience.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've never heard of a crime occurring on the campus committed by one of the students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms aren't terrible but it is still better to live off campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Football is the biggest and best in the region, every other sport is above average.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus has the best atmosphere I've ever seen on a public university. The academics are the best in the state.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drinking is very prevalent at the University, but not so much that it changes people completely. The drug use is limited to a smaller amount of students like at all campuses. It is pretty easy to get caught up in it if you are not careful. If you tell people you don't drink or you don't do drugs, however, they completely respect it and no one treats you differently if you do not participate. You are still welcome at the parties and traditions, even if you decide not to drink. It is a great atmosphere for people like me, who rarely drink, as well as for people who drink all the time and those who don't drink at all. There are people who belong to each category and they all feel completely welcome and accepted in any situation involving alcohol.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are great and the student reviews are very helpful. Most of the professors at the University want their students not only to succeed in the class, but also to understand and retain the material. There are several professors to choose from in almost any subject. Many general education classes are very large, with over 100 people per class. However, you can find classes that are much smaller in number. Professors are almost always accessible and helpful.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University works very hard for students to find jobs after graduation. There are always people on campus recruiting for interns or employment. The Career Center is very helpful and helps to match students with potential professional schools or potential careers.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: While on every college campus there are problems with sexual assault, I feel very safe in this community. There is always someone on campus no matter what time and people are always looking out for one another. There are safety lights all over campus that automatically notify police of your location and they are dispatched almost immediately. These safety lights are easily accessible and are very helpful. I am a 20 year old female and I feel very safe and respected on campus at all times and hours of the day and night.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Depending on which dorm you live in, your experience will vary. For example (girl's dorms) Martin is a great option if you don't mind little privacy and community bathrooms/showers. The community you will find on your floor in Martin, however, is unparalleled. You will meet your best friends on your floor and you will make great memories with your floormates/others in your building. Girl's dorms like Pittman, however, are great if you require lots of privacy, a separate bathroom, and a relatively new facility. These dorms are clean and new and have their own bathroom and shower. The doors automatically close and are very difficult to prop open however. While you will meet people on your floor and in your dorm, you will not build as close friendships as you would in the dorm with community bathrooms. You won't have as much contact with others in your floor/dorm, but for people who don't like to have their privacy intruded on, the newer dorms are great. Every dorm has a C-Store (POD--convenience store) so that shouldn't affect your choice.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Each Greek community on campus has their own individual philanthropy. Everything that particular group does revolves around this philanthropy. They help each other out and help to raise money to send to charitable causes. While at some schools the Greek community can be very exclusive, at Ole Miss, it is very inclusive. No one is treated as any better or any worse solely because of their Greek affiliation. Everyone is equal and going Greek or not does not make you any more or less of an Ole Miss Rebel.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at Ole Miss are incredible. While I'm not a student-athlete, I feel completely welcomed by those athletes that I know and have become friends with. The student support for the athletics is incredible and almost everyone cheers for and follows every sport, a much different atmosphere than at many schools. The school spirit is unparalleled and the heart for this University as well as the athletics is so wonderful to experience. Plus, we win a lot of the competitions so the morale tends to be pretty high. Intramurals are also great. There are plenty of fun sports to choose from and everyone can participate. There are tons of teams and even teams that don't win have a lot of fun.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone you meet is a Rebel just like you. Everyone is there to get a good education and everyone loves to help everyone else in any way they can. While we have faced some adversity and controversy, Ole Miss prevails and the University grows stronger and becomes more of a family every day. If you're considering the University of Mississippi, you will find home here. There are people from all walks of life, but everyone loves and uplifts one another. If you're thinking of applying, definitely do and definitely come on a visit. It is an incredible school and everyone deserves a chance to be a Reb.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've learned so much and through my classes I've been challenged.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Our degree here is highly valued and it is relatively easy for a graduate to get a job.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Alcohol is a huge part of campus culture and you have to remember to be smart about it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus was a good freshman year experience, but I could never live on campus for two years.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Best Greek life in the country. Sororities and Fraternities raise thousands each year for their philanthropies.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football season brings everyone together in the Grove.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Love this school. Perfect college environment. Ole Miss has it all.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are only two 18^ bars but they are always crazy on the weekends and some week nights. As for 21^ bars there are some great ones in the square. If you have a good fake you most likely can get in anywhere.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Spring parties are the best. They are usually in a field and it's hosted by a frat and it just so much fun and you get to know so many people. Night spring parties are the best.

4 College Freshman

Academics: All of the professors but one that I have had so far have been awesome

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Liberals will not feel at home here. Very conservative campus, in a good way, and many people having Confederate flags everywhere.

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.
