4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life at Ole Miss is very involved. Many people on Student Council are affiliated with Greek. Athletes are as well.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We are all a big family when it comes to sporting events.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Obviously, we are a great party school and like to have fun. Most week nights a Fraternity will be having a Late Night. The actual "registered" parties are the most fun at the Fraternity Houses.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is not bad. The Grill at 1810 is the best place to eat. It is also where all of the athletes and coaches eat.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Live at the Ridges if at all possible. If not, Stockard/Martin are the best dorms.

Off-Campus Housing: They have housing fairs each semester to help with this process.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Variety of options to choose from.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: We have a 2-strike policy.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My mom did it for me.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't attend any parties unless it's a house party.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Food is ok, but you get tired of eating the same thing every week. There isn't much of a variety even with "home-cooked" meals.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is convenient for walking to class. LRC and RC are great dorms to live in! Best dorm there is to live in.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: Have not attended this school yet. I am transferring there in Aug. 2015.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus yet; however, I did sign a lease for the connection and I absolutely cannot wait to move in. It seems extremely safe and convenient. It's the first stop on the bus route, so I am always guaranteed a spot on the bus.

Off-Campus Dining: I usually do not eat off campus because I have a meal plan and no $$$. When I do however, I can always find something eat at an okay cost. Oxford is a college town so I expect the prices to be a little high.

Administration: There are tons of strict rules; some are necessary (underage drinking) and some seem unnecessary (visitation). I understand that the university wants to make sure that all residents are safe and accounted for. They do not want any extra liabilities on their part; therefore, they enforce strict visitation rules. But I personally feel as though because I am in college, I should be allowed to have a guest over at any time of night. This is not my parent's house. I am not under their rules, yet the university rules are a lot more strict than my own parents.

Scholarships: I received financial aid, the minimal amount they can give.... It went smoothly. I just wish I had more... I'm still struggling to pay for school.

Party Scene: The bars and the frat houses definitely have something going on. I prefer the frat houses because they're significantly less crowded and there are more people my age.

Campus Food: The only problem that I have with the meal plan is that I get sick of the same food. However, the JC or the Grill at 1810 offers a variety of food. I wish the flex dollars were more because I always seem to run out so quickly. I love the plus one because I am not just limited to the JC to use my meals.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing process is super easy. I live in one of the contemporary dorms (Minor Hall), which are considered one of the "nicer" dorms. There are private bathrooms and a housekeeping staff that handles the upkeep of them. There are also boys and girls in this particular dorm, which provides diversity and maintains safety. It's a LLC dorm and I am part of the Provost Scholar Community; therefore, I can connect with others like myself.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I feel like it's hard to find opportunities because the campus is so large and growing, especially in my major, especially as a freshman without a car. I wish to see more hospitality opportunities, such as helping plan school events and such.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's pretty abundant and there's pretty much always a party going on, except for the bars can be expensive, and the major downside is that everything is always very crowded.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: It's a great small town vibe, however other than bars and eating there is not much to do around town, especially not for free.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They take some rules too seriously, such as visitation and parking, while drugs and alcohol are threatened a lot but growing.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The school and its traditions are based on sports, which is something I love. Going to the grove and watching the football games and basketball games, is something so surreal, and its a huge reason why people attend and love the school.

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.
