It may be the University of Mississippi, but the Ole Miss student population is comprised students from all 50 states and 86 countries! With so many international students on campus, we wanted to put together a list of resources for international students. Having students come to Ole Miss from all over the world strengthens our university and allows students from all walks of life to learn from each other. We’re so thankful to have so many countries represented on campus!
