I came here on a full scholarship (NationalQuite BrightPublic Policy
I came here on a full scholarship (National Merit + honors college). I think that to get everything that the school has to offer, you need to be part of the Honors College. That means you get smaller classes, free trips, an Honors building, and great professors. Dr. Melissa Bass (Public Policy) and Dr. Joe Atkins (Journalism/Honors) are great and I completely recommend them. DO NOT take math classes your first year -- you will likely get someone who can barely speak English. I had to drop a class because of this. I am also in the Lott Institute (Public Policy major), which helps a lot. It's super easy to get on the debate team if you want to -- the coach is very nice and all you have to do is go to the meetings! Plus, even as a freshman you get to go on at least one debate trip if your schedule allows it! The town is small but cute. A lot of the kids are rich and cliquish but you can find people to hang out with who are fairly down to earth. And the professors are great.

Attending summer college was a waste of time,Undecided
Attending summer college was a waste of time, money, and was an overall disappointment. I 100% regret sending my child there and putting him in a position where he was forced to live in a dorm with drug addicts and alcoholics and basically thugs with money! I was also shocked to learn that a 23 year old male counselor "hooked up" with a 17 year old female student. I am very disappointed that faculty would allow this sort of environment for impressionable kids, not to mention putting our kids in potential danger. I expected so much better.

Look for another school.BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
Look for another school. The whole town of oxford is a money pit. It might look really pretty on the exterior but the people are fake, the lifestyle is ridiculously expensive, and your chances of being competitive in the academic or real-life sphere afterward are slim-to-none.
