Beautiful campus

We drove through Oxford to see this historic campus. It is very beautiful as well as being historically significant. Be sure to see the Lyceum.

Fantastic event! It is truly a site to see! Plenty of food/drink/sharing AND TVs! Pick an SEC game to top it off!

Visited the school with my teenager who is an admitted student for next fall. She loved it even more than the first time we visited. Student guides and admissions staff were friendly and provided great guidance and advice.

What a beautiful campus! We were there to visit our daughter & attend a Rebels football game. We had heard & read so much about the Grove & the elaborate tailgate tents but to actually see it & be there was an unbelievable experience. Everyone was so friendly & truly showed you what southern hospitality is all about. It's something... More

For anyone who is unsure of where to attend college, I toss my vote to the University of Mississippi. The campus is gorgeous. It makes the walk between classes more than bearable, but even enjoyable. The best part though, no doubt, is the people you will meet. People from all walks of life. People you can learn from. Even if... More

Campus is breathtaking! However, bring your walking shoes. There are a large number of students on campus so parking is limited. Take time to enjoy the sites.

The University of Mississippi provides a great atmosphere for pretty much any occasion. Very nice to walk around as the trees provide shade. Game days are a little hectic but still worth the visit.

Really enjoyed the campus. Very pretty indeed. Nice people for sure. We came out for a tailgate at the grove which was an interesting experience for those from out of town. Very much a southern social event to be seen at least once

As an Ole Miss alum, I could hardly be considered totally objective, but enough travel writers and journalists, including U.S.A. Today, have identified the University of Mississippi as the most beautiful campus in the country. The buildings are almost all red brick, many/most white columned, lush vegetation and green space throughout the campus, and truly remarkable landscaping. On campus is... More
