The University of Mississippi is nicknamed Ole Miss and the first fraternity, Rainbow Fraternity, was the first fraternity founded in the south.
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.
