Alongside several SEC schools, Ole Miss made the cut on Southern Living’s recent list titled “The South’s Most Beautiful Colleges.” Known for its architecture, southern charm and storied past, there’s no surprise here that the flagship University in the state of Mississippi made the list. 

“The Phi Mu Fountain. Magnolia Drive. The Lyceum, built in the 1840s, with its graceful Ionic columns. These are just a few of the school’s storied landmarks. Historic buildings along the Quad, as well as Bryant Hall, built in 1911 and accented by an impressive rotunda, have plenty of collegiate character. But the Lyceum has seen it all—from wounded soldiers housed here during the Civil War to James Meredith’s enrollment as the school’s first black student in 1962. On football game days, Southern tailgating rises to a whole new level when the silver candelabras come out at the Grove.” – Southern Living
