I’ve spent a lot of time on class work to the detriment of my social life. I know, however, that there are all kinds of opportunities to get involved in the community and get to know people. The effort I put into my classes is matched by the effort the professors put into teaching their students too. I know that I could go to them with any questions I have about the material or someone else that might know, like a teaching assistant or tutor, that I’m given the information for at the beginning of the semester. There are good places to eat at on campus, but in my opinion, the meal plans are not worth what I pay for, so I prefer to get groceries and cook my own food. I work as a desk assistant for one of the freshman dorms, and it seems like a terrible place to live since those residents tend to party a lot, causing property damage and getting into fights, but the freshman dorm I stayed at was comfortable. I now live in an apartment on campus, and I don’t have any problems with it.
If these are your first college classes, I recommend getting the eBook instead of the hardcover for classes. A lot of them require students to use an online platform for homework, and some of these platforms will include access to the textbook. Overall, it’s less expensive to get the digital textbook compared to the hardcover. As for the dorm I mentioned working at, this dorm is where many students who want to get into fraternities and sororities go, so that’s why there’s a lot of partying. I don’t think it’s worth living in to get into a sorority, but I guess some would disagree.
My experience at the University of Mississippi has been good as I am currently in my second year here.
Always be aware of your surroundings and be aware of any and all resources that the university has to offer.
At the University of Mississippi, there is a place for everyone. This is what I like most about the University of Mississippi. No matter who you are, your race, identity, or even age, there is a place for you. This university is very inclusive and has so many opportunities for people to get involved and feel like they belong at this university.
I think the most negative part about the university is the parking and the housing options. Although there are some very nice contemporary dorms that have been recently built, there are not many places for upperclassmen to live and some of the dorms are very old and not very clean. With parking, we do not have enough, so you have to get to campus very early to get a spot.
There hasn't been a downside for me. Ole Miss has felt like home.
Was not prepared for the seasonal allergies.
The professors are always willing to help. They care about your success. Everyone on campus is kind. Everything is clean and well organized.
The material is extremely fast pace, literally a lesson a day.
I really enjoy attending this university. The teachers are always willing to help and the social life is absolutely amazing. There are plenty of different organizations/clubs to get involved in on campus.
Some of the older dorms aren't as nice, but there are plenty of contemporary dorms around that you are able to choose
