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.

While the Administration is very organized and isBrightEconomics
While the Administration is very organized and is dedicated to the success of students, the people at Ole Miss are clones. Greek life is a large reason to the corruption on campus. Sororities and Fraternities cause segregation among students. If you are not white, rich, and a legacy of the university, prepare yourself to feel like an outsider. Those in the Greek system look down on those who are not. Also, there is a lack of dedication to studies by students and the administration adds to this problem by providing easy classes with little to no outside work. My classes freshman year were all a joke and was surprised when I heard classmates complaining how difficult the classes were and that they had to study. Overall the campus is filled with basic white kids who are close-minded and only want to party 24/7.

Ole Miss has an abnormally high number ofQuite BrightPsychology
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,
