The University of Mississippi is very special to me for many reasons. First off, it does not seem like just a school, I would say it is more like family. I absolutely love seeing new faces each day, but also strengthening the relationships I have already made. Ole Miss is a home away from home. I feel very safe here and love everything that goes on. This campus has many organizations to be involved in so that no one feels left behind. It is a very friendly campus and it is nice to see smiling faces while walking to class. The football games are very memorable because the students all come together and support our football players. It is so encouraging to see the love that comes out of this school. If there is ever help needed, someone is there to help you. As long as you try your very hardest you will succeed anywhere you go, but Ole Miss is definitely the place to go!

I wish that I knew exactly what to look for in a school. The classes I needed to reach my goal on campus and online. UM does not offer enough online. My favorite professor would have to be Professor Lindsey. Though she is young and I am an adult learner she takes the time to listen to what I have to say.To sum her up with less than caring and concerned would be an injustice. The Psychology Department is my favorite department. The adviser was very helpful and went out of her way to assist me in making the best choices for my schedule. I have no secrets to tell you about getting around campus. It is just one building. I go to University of Mississippi on the Tupelo campus because it is closer for me. The study hall enhances due to the fact that if you forgot your computer in the car there is one right there in the study hall. Tupelo campus it is small so therefore you are closer. At the University campus there are better facilities but that is not to say that you would be close.
