THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI
Founded in 1848, the University of Mississippi is the state’s flagship and largest institution, with an enrollment of 23,000 students representing all 50 states and 90 countries. We were ranked among top 12 fastest-growing universities in the country and also named a “Great College to Work For” by the Chronicle of Higher Education for the 11th consecutive year.
The University of Mississippi is located in Oxford, MS and was recently named America’s best college town. Oxford is a vibrant small town in North Mississippi. The picturesque town square boasts James Beard Award-winning restaurants, family-owned shops and a healthy dose of character and complexity. Once home to Nobel Prize winning author William Faulkner, Oxford has a rich literary history and one of the country’s greatest contemporary bookstores, Square Books.
With an excellent school system and a cost of living that is comparatively lower than many other college towns, Oxford is a great place to live and work.
