It’s ridiculous how many times I’ve been shamed for choosing Ole Miss and staying in-state for college. It’s tiring to constantly hear “Don’t do that to yourself” or “You need to get away from the South.” It’s not anyone’s business to decide the next four years of my future. I will be getting paid to attend college and graduate with zero student debt. I will be able to come home on the weekends instead of spending hundreds of dollars on plane tickets. I love everything about Ole Miss: the campus, people, school spirit, majors, social atmosphere, and Oxford. Hotty Toddy!
