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.

The school as a whole is welcoming andAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
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.

My school has EXCELLENT night life, social life,BrightCriminal
My school has EXCELLENT night life, social life, and other fun things to do everyday of the week. The campus looks great, the women look great. We have arguably the best greek life in the nation, and we have the best tailgating in the nation. However, the little things suck ass. Like parking, there is a huge shortage of parking on campus. Plus, Construction, throughout my whole freshman year they started construction on my dorm. They were supposed to be done at the end of the first semester, but it will not be done until the end of the year. They are supposed to not start until 9 o'clock in the morning, but they usually start around 7. And the work they do is NOT quiet. I've heard sledge hammers banging on the wall right outside my window, drills, bricks falling continuously, and machines running. Plainly put, CONSTRUCTION SUCKS!!!!
