What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
VISIT CAMPUS. i was not a fan before i actually went to campus. i have visited Baylor, Arkansas, Texas, LSU, and ULL, and no where gives me the warm-fuzzies like Ole Miss. its different than anywhere you can ever go.
Mary from Shreveport, LA
Don't be afraid to ask you teachers questions, thats what they are their for, but that goes for every university.

For Ole Miss, be apart! Get out there! Go to football games! Drag a friend along, even if you didn't finish your home work. All ways make time to see them rebels play!

Also, consider going greek and joining a panhellenic fraternity or sorrority! Ole Miss has some of the most acclaimed greek societies in the country!
Elizabeth from Oxford, MS
Even if you're just a tiny bit interested in Ole Miss, TAKE A VISIT. Many people will say that just one time on the campus and in Oxford was what made them decide to attend school here. Also, apply for the Honors College! It's a huge perk because you get priority registration for classes. You also get many opportunities to make connections with future potential employers.
Megan from Houston, TX
Anyone who is looking to go to Ole Miss needs to get involved. Ole Miss has so much to offer and getting involved helps make the experience that much more amazing. Getting involved includes but is not limited to student organizations, it also involves talking to professors. The professors here are always willing to help and introducing yourself allows them to recognize you and notice that you are serious about your education and are wanting to get the most out of your education.
Kristen from Ridgeland, MS
Get involved and meet people. Academics are important, but you need a full college experience and Ole Miss will provide that if you want it.
Alison from Utica, MS
If you aren't from the South, be open minded. There is nothing better than going to a big Southern school for college. Ole Miss has a sense of tradition that I know I wouldn't have gotten in a East Coast school.
Eric from South Plainfield, NJ
Being a southern school, you may wish to dress to impress. The people here are just as beautiful as the surroundings. Everyone here loves to be involved and is always working to improve the campus, the community and each other.
Christina from Naperville, IL
Although some people go to Ole Miss to party, it is a serious school. They have an excellent pharmacy, pre-med, and law school to start. You should be prepared to work but know that you need to have some fun sometimes, and people will most definitely help you have fun.
Katherine from Oxford, MS
Be prepared to work hard and get insane rewards. School may be tough but the times in the Grove and the Square are totally worth it. But you just have to make sure to stay focused on why you're there.
Hannah from Madison, MS
Before you apply visit, if possible on a game weekend. Not only will you see a majority of the student body, but also a majority of the alumni. You'll see the traditions that the campus thrives of us and get to experience an amazing atmosphere. Make sure to wear Sunday's Best!
