5 Reasons To Thank God I Go To Ole Miss

Not a day goes by where I don't stop and remind myself of how lucky I am to be a student here.

5 Reasons To Thank God I Go To Ole Miss
Lauren Cox

Leaving my hometown of Johns Creek, Georgia and heading 6 hours away to Oxford, Mississippi was one of the scariest things I have ever done. When deciding to go to Ole Miss, I never really thought about the drastic change that would take place in my life. Although adjusting to college has been challenging at times, here are a few things I thank God for when I think about this amazing school

1. The flowers are blooming on campus.

Y'all, whoever is in charge of our landscaping is amazing! Red tulips everywhere makes walking to class worth it.

2. The Grove is packed with fans.

There is seriously nothing like thousands of people wearing the exact same color roaming around the grove waiting to cheer on the Rebs.

3. The cutest town ever is half a mile down the road.

The Square in downtown Oxford is definitely one of my favorite things about Ole Miss. It has the cutest shops and the best environment.

4. The atmosphere is inclusive.

At such a big school, it's easy to feel lost and struggle to find your people, but not here. There are so many people that are just like you and when you find them, you'll never want to let them go.

5. The food is to die for.

I've been a student here for about a year and have visited Oxford all throughout high school, and I have still yet to try every restaurant in town. There are so many different places to eat and never once have I had a meal I didn't love.

Ole Miss truly is one of a kind. Not a day goes by where I don't stop and remind myself of how lucky I am to be a student here. Yes, school is school and it's not always fun, but these 5 things definitely make all of the hard work worth it.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
