    Looked between here Georgia, Baylor and North Carolina. Great academics. Great Greek life. The game day experience in the Grove is one that cannot be replicated. Absolutely an awesome school with awesome traditions. ...Continue reading

    its the best college in the United States Got into all schools and narrowed down between here and Georgia. It's much safer here, while Athens has homeless population in their downtown area. All around great school. ...Continue reading

    I really enjoy Ole Miss and even as an out-of-state student, it's not as expensive as most colleges. On campus life is just as exciting with different clubs, activities, events and Greek life. There genuine people who are extremely nice and helpful. Most of the professors I've had seem like they want to teach and are willing to do whatever they can to help the students, and as far as safety nothing really bad happens unless it's a DUI or frat boys fighting. ...Continue reading

    poor academics, all people care about is partying and greek life. People here are petty, the town sucks, and half the campus is run down.

    Ole Miss is hands down one of the safest campuses I've set foot on. However, it is in a pretty rural area--at least to me, coming from Atlanta. But the square is lovely, and overall everyone is extremely friendly and most of my classes have been great. Almost everywhere is well lit with plenty of distress stops. Party and bars are great, everyone knows that. Voted pretty campus in the country. Oxford has a small town feel and some of the best food in the country actually. Still known as a dumb party schools but trying to change. ...Continue reading

    Ole Miss is an A+ school if you like to party, if you don't than there is literally nothing else for you. The campus is beautiful in places and just covered by shrubs in others. There is a stupidly large emphasis on Greek life here. Overall, the people here are very Christian based and very conservative 1950s era attitudes prevail. There's nothing to do in the town besides drink. ...Continue reading

The Grove and the Circle are really pretty, but that's about it. ...Continue reading

    Kincannon dorms are the third world and the town is too small and has nothing to do in it The town is tiny with little to do (No malls, limited outdoor activities, etc). The people here are extremely conservative minded and the hospitality is insincere, but the ethnocentrism is VERY sincere. The academic quality is low and many teachers and departments seem like they've just quit caring. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 2/5
    Ranked #332 by Forbes, the wifi is junk, and the school cares more about sports than academics by a long shot which is especially sad bc they're only good at football. If you don't go greek don't expect to do much because that's the only popular thing to be involved in. Greek system tears the other houses down, not a family or even a community feeling at all ...Continue reading

    Coming to school here was one of the best choices I've ever made! You'll know if it's for you as soon as you arrive. Oxford isn't a huge city. There is a strong Greek community. There are plenty of clubs and activities on campus if you want to get involved. It's easy to make friends. Strong academic and inclusion programs. It's traditional but modern in basically every aspect. There is nothing easy about the classes at Ole Miss. It's a fun school and a lot of social events and parties/partying, but most of us take our classes serious and get good GPA's. Greek life is a big part of campus. The campus is beautiful. I got into seven good schools and chose Ole Miss. ...Continue reading

    Just about to finish my first year here and I'm gonna transfer yall. If you are in Greek life, then you have no life. Academics don't matter here. Navigating through any kind of process involving the administration is a waste of your time, effort, and sanity. The professors are hit or miss. Either they teach you decently enough to fumble through the exams or they are bumbling fools who substitute vagueness for instruction. ...Continue reading

    Voted one of the most beautiful campuses in the US: In part due to the Grove that breaths life to the whole University with it's miles of green grass and looming oak trees.
