Ole Miss has an abnormally high number of students in the Greek system - and the Greek system and their money influence everything here. If you are in the "right" frat or sorority, you can get away with a lot. If you are not a student who is in a fraternity or sorority, good luck, as you will need it. If you are an out of state student, even more luck is needed as they do NOT like out of state students, the professors have been great, but it have seen some of the most unjust things done to out of state or non-Greek students. I happen to have joined a sorority here, but I have many friends who did not and the disparity between how the Dean's office will treat a student for a minor infraction is outrageous, Also the school security is non-existent at night. A friend of mine was beaten up by a group of punks one night coming home from Biology Lab. It has been a rude awakening. I would not recommend this school to others unless they plan to "go GREEK" as you will feel (and be treated) like an outsider. Sadly, many of my freshman year friends ended up transferring to other universities because of this cold reality. It is a beautiful campus, but a lot of "ugly" goes on behind the scenes,

The most prejudice school I have ever been to!! Now it's a good school when it comes to classes, sports, frat parties, etc. But when it comes financial aid and that tuiton bill, those people in the office are elitist, unethical, and unprofessional. If you aren't white, rich, or joining the sororities/fraternities you might wanna look elsewhere. Because in their eyes anyone else do not seem fit to attend there. Just ask all the other students who are getting kicked out because they mysteriously owe thousands of dollars to the school. Yep this is sure one of the best schools.

The school as a whole is welcoming and wants you to feel like part of the Ole Miss family, however, many of the professors seem standoffish and make you feel as though you could never go to their office hours for help. The students here are friendly, you could meet people walking to class, waiting in line for food at the union, at the library, at clubs, or on the square going out.. the possibilities are endless. Many drive cars worth more than most families make in a year but you'd never guess it judging by their demeanor, for a few it's written all over everything about them. The pride at this school is second to none, however being far out of state does make you feel left out on occasion. The social aspect of this school is amazing. Wednesday through Saturday is prime, sunday through tuesday is dead, with good reason. The fraternity parties are very fun and very frequent (multiple frat parties every friday and saturday)The area is safe. The town isnt what i'd consider a southern town to be; it's a college town. The town comes alive with every game day, and everyone loves Ole Miss. One of my professors got a job here simply because he never wanted to leave, he loved it so much. Classes are rigorous. Professors are either really good or really make your life difficult. The campus is huge and walking to class can be a struggle if you live in martin/stockard although those are generally the most desirable dorms.
