I loved this University. It had so much to offer both on and off campus. There were beautiful outdoor spaces, professional grade sports arenas, centers for performing arts, a museum, churches, a quaint downtown that had great little town shopping with some upscale touches. On the other side of campus was a commercial area that offered pretty much every kind... More

I really think that this is one of the prettiest universities that I have ever seen. And that's coming from a guy whose father was a college professor, so I have seen a lot of schools. And I might add this comment is coming from a Mississippi State guy also. But give credit where it's due, this university looks beautiful.... More

Epitomizes the South. So much culture, art, and great food. Historical setbacks led to a cultural comeback story of greatness.

We have been to the campus many times as we have family who live there. Once our brother-in-law hosted a Grove Party and we jog around the campus often. We have used the guest health facilities which are great but the real juice is the southern feeling and charm of this beautiful campus set in iconic Oxford which is rich... More

We traveled from a business trip in Memphis to Oxford, Mississippi the home of Ole Miss specifically to enjoy an afternoon in the "Grove" and the evening game that followed. First of all, there is nothing like the Grove anywhere else in America, and to follow all that partying with an Ole Miss football game is an experience that will... More

We drove through Oxford to see this historic campus. It is very beautiful as well as being historically significant. Be sure to see the Lyceum.

Visited the school with my teenager who is an admitted student for next fall. She loved it even more than the first time we visited. Student guides and admissions staff were friendly and provided great guidance and advice.

What a beautiful campus! We were there to visit our daughter & attend a Rebels football game. We had heard & read so much about the Grove & the elaborate tailgate tents but to actually see it & be there was an unbelievable experience. Everyone was so friendly & truly showed you what southern hospitality is all about. It's something... More

For anyone who is unsure of where to attend college, I toss my vote to the University of Mississippi. The campus is gorgeous. It makes the walk between classes more than bearable, but even enjoyable. The best part though, no doubt, is the people you will meet. People from all walks of life. People you can learn from. Even if... More
