I’m often asked while on the road recruiting if the University of Mississippi is the same thing as Ole Miss. And while the names may be interchangeable, what they represent for me is vastly different. To me, the university consists of books and buildings. It’s the classes that are required for your degree. It’s our beautiful campus and old oak trees. But Ole Miss is the excitement you get seeing red and blue trash cans dot the grove on a Friday morning. It’s the life education you receive that goes far beyond your declared major. It’s the friendships and memories that will make up some of the best years of your life. Ole Miss is the feeling of coming home no matter how long you’ve been gone.
To me, the University of Mississippi will forever be my alma matter, but Ole Miss will always be home.
