{oxford} ole miss

April 19, 2016

I never thought that for whatever reason I would be in Mississippi and would be walking around the Ole Miss campus for pretty much no reason except to see what it is like. Well, the opportunity arose, so why not, right?

The University of Mississippi, more commonly known as Ole Miss, was founded in 1848 and happens to be Mississippi’s largest university. This makes sense considering the size of this campus and its formidable sports program, The Rebels. While we were walking on campus, we saw that they were adding to the Rebels football stadium to seat even more people!

Ole Miss has had some notable alumni including Nobel Prize-winning novelist William Faulkner, who resided at Rowan Oak during his time in Oxford. Another important alumni is the first black student to ever attend the school: James Meredith. He was an important person during the Civil Rights and Ole Miss even has signs up about his attendance as well as his statue on campus.
