The University of Mississippi is a public institution and R1: Doctoral Research University located in Oxford. There are four other regional campuses throughout Mississippi and a medical center in Jackson, which all contribute to it being the state’s largest university by enrollment. The sea- and space-grant university is the only one in the state to house the nation’s most prestigious honor society, Phi Beta Kappa. The University of Mississippi is nicknamed Ole Miss and the first fraternity, Rainbow Fraternity, was the first fraternity founded in the south.
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.
