Ole Miss is the state university of Mississippi. Rather than call it by its full name of Mississippi, they shorten it to "Miss." The "Ole" refers to its age and the nostal…gia of its alumni.
The University got its nickname "Ole Miss" via a contest in 1897. That same year, the student yearbook was being published for the first time. As a way to find a name for the …book, a contest was held to solicit suggestions from the student body. Elma Meek, a student at the time, submitted the winning entry of Ole Miss. Interestingly, the term "Ole Miss" is not derived from Mississippi, but was a term used by slaves for the wife of a plantation owner. This sobriquet was chosen not only for the yearbook, but also became the name by which the University is now affectionately known cited from: Chodas, Nadine. The Band Played Dixie: Race and Liberal Conscience at Ole Miss.
"Ole" is slang for "old", see discussion.
Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) is located in, or conjoined with the city of Oxford, Mississippi. It is located roughly 25 miles East of Batesville, MS, and 50 miles West… of Tupelo.

The University of Mississippi sports teams were renamed the Rebels in 1936, but are affectionately known as "Ole Miss". The school's colorswere adopted in 1893 and are Car…dinal Red and Navy Blue purposely chosen to mirror the school colors of Harvard (red) and Yale (blue).
"The Grove" is a green space on the campus of the University of Mississippi. During most of the week, it is a quiet place known for its natural beauty where students sometime…s gather to relax or study. However, during the football season, it becomes the center of tailgating activity on campus. Ole Miss is renowned for its famous tailgate parties where students-particularly underclassmen-dress in their Sunday best while attending.
Mark Young, a sophomore. He was named offensive MVP of that season's Independence Bowl that was won by Ole Miss.
The apparent reason for changing the mascot is that the "Colonel Reb" was a a carricature of a Confederate soldier, which created unwanted racial overtones since the Confedera…cy was associated with slavery. There is a certain amount of irony in this since the original model for the "Colonel Reb" logo may well have been an African American man, "Blind Jim" Ivy. "Blind Jim" Ivy was a campus fixture until his death in 1955, seven years before the school was integrated in 1962. He was affectionately known as "the dean of freshmen" for his many pep talks to incoming Ole Miss freshmen classes. Jim Ivy became an integral part of the University of Mississippi in 1896. Born in 1870 as the son of former slave Matilda Ivy, he moved from Alabama to Mississippi in 1890. Ivy was blinded in his early teens when coal tar paint got into his eyes while painting the Tallahatchie River Bridge. Ivy became a penut vendor in Oxford and was considered the university's mascot for many years.
The official mascot for the Ole Miss Rebels is the Rebel Black Bear. In 2010 the official school mascot was changed to the Rebel Black Bear after the original removal of Colon…el Reb back in 2003.
The goal was to allow both white and black students to receive a high-quality Ole Miss education, and to allow the students to learn together and learn from each other ins…ide and outside the classroom.
