It is the most beautiful campus I have ever laid my eyes on. The faculty and staff are eager for you to learn. I feel at home and safe on campus.

The University of Mississippi is a fantastic college that offers a wide variety of clubs, classes, and activities. It is a very social campus with lots of Greeks, parties and things to do. It is a HUGE football school and great at tailgating.
