Just Erin! I actually went to Coastal Carolina by Myrtle Beach, SC my freshman year (too much of a beachy party scene for me) not really what I’m used to at home! I was really lucky one of my closest friends and roomie from Coastal transferred with me to Ole Miss, we both wanted the same thing: traditional southern school, sorority life, etc, not really what we picked when all we had was the beach on our mind during senior slide. We toured Ole Miss and Alabama during our winter break and fell in love with Ole Miss! I really have come to know and love the charm of the southern college town Oxford, MS my second year here as a junior.
I actually have a few friends though from MS who transferred after CC in their area and came to Ole Miss! The transition was pretty easy, a lot of my friends that transferred from a CC lived in an apartment with a random set up of roommates or they knew some folks that already went to school here if they lived pretty close to Oxford! it sounds scary but I lived with randoms not knowing anyone my freshman year and I ended up making a best friend there! I recommend it you will never have an experience like college again, definitely grab ahold of it and don’t let it go! At least I won’t maybe a 5th lap, haha!
