There’s never a bad time to visit Oxford. But Oxford locals and students both know how pricey it can be for a weekend here. So if you get the chance for a mini vacation, why not visit Oxford during the week? First off, it’s way cheaper.

Weekdays are prime time to take advan

Oxford is home to quirky traditions, literary legends, killer cuisine, and of course, Ole Miss. With all that Oxford has to offer, from parties to football to festivals, it’s important to be able to find a reliable and wallet-friendly way to get around town. Let’s explore our options!

With Ole Miss being in the heart of the south and part of the SEC, it is definitely portrayed as a football school. Sure we love the Grove-packed Saturdays and the energy in the air after a big win, but with all of the light being shed on football here, people are often blinded by its presence. The other amazing athletes here are often overshadowed but should in no way be pushed to the side. Ole Miss is more than just a football school. It’s a track school, a tennis school, a
One of the biggest reasons Oxford is so loved is because of its small town charm. However with small towns, transportation can get complicated. The Memphis, TN airport is the closest airport to Oxford, so it is the primary airport that Ole Miss students and Oxford visitors use for traveling.

Ahhh TGIDD! It is a beautiful Friday here in Oxford and the forecast calls for more perfect weather for the remainder of the weekend. When I say perfect, I mean PERFECT – 73 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. I have a feeling this might be the best Double Decker Festival yet.

Way down south in Mississippi, There's a spot that ever calls
Where among the hills enfolded. Stand Old Alma Mater's Halls.
Where the trees lift high their branches, To the whisp'ring southern breeze.
There Ole Miss is calling, calling, to our hearts fond memories.
With united hearts we praise thee, All our loyalty is thine,
And we hail thee, Alma Mater, may thy light forever shine;
