I'd like to know which college would be more suitable for an international studies major?

I know a lot of people who studied that at Mississippi State. They used it for various things and seem to be doing quite well. That and something called BIS (business information systems I think).

Plus, they are the people's university. Look no further than the nimrod shenanigans Ole Miss has themselves in now, across multiple athletic programs, including academic fraud. No way I'd send a kid there.

Easy choice. People are more welcoming at MSU too. There are people from all over there.

Ole Miss is in the midst of an identity crisis.

It's currently a Colonel Landbearshark.

I'd just wish they stuck with Colonel Reb. But they think standing behind a prostitute buying Bible tweeter, who buys prostitutes for underage football recruits and fails to use a burner phone while doing it is more moral.

Lots of snooty A-holes in Oxford too.

An identity crisis they have been forced into by people from other areas of the country who judge them and their symbolism based on events that happened a long time ago. I get it, it's offensive to some people, get rid of it, but people forced them to have this identity crisis.

Now as far as Hugh Freeze goes, he was a hypocritical cheater who thumped on his bible at the same time he was buying escorts and who knows what else, but the university isn't standing behind him. They had to have proof, and a reasonable reason to get rid of him so an investigation was made by the university after that phone call came to light, and he was fired for a pattern of conduct unbecoming the head football coach at Ole Miss. Can't always know exactly what kind of person is working for you until they show their ways. At that point you either keep them or fire them.

All the "big four" will be close in tuition, fees, books, etc. You need to investigate the cost of living expenses in the local community (if you live off campus). You can still rent some appartmetns in Starkville for a reasonable monthly fee, not sure about Oxford or Hattiesburg. If you want to live in the trendy areas near any of them, you will pay a premium.

Ole Miss is better for international studies due to the Croft Institute: The Croft Institute | Croft Institute for International Studies at the University of Mississippi. Ole Miss is the Flagship University and more widely known outside the state, but that alone is not a good reason to choose OM.

Oxford and Starkville are both smaller towns, but still quite different. Oxford has a lot more options in terms of cultural, dining, shopping, and other things to do and see, and is not as rural and isolated from other spots like Starkville. Memphis is just about an hour away from Oxford. Starkville is not really close to any other major city.

The MS/AL line guy is really throwing some NCAA shade in this post? MSU has been on probation with the NCAA more than Ole Miss, but it's really totally irrelevant so that's all that needs to be said. (UNC had similar (actually much worse) stuff with the NCAA and that wouldn't dissuade me from going there.) Also, I doubt MSU has more people "from all over." MSU has a lot more in-state students and Ole Miss has a lot more out-of-state students. Also, business information systems is basically IT and not related to international studies at all. If you were doing BIS, it is probably more even or an edge to MSU, but you aren't. He is confusing BIS with international studies for some reason.

I'm curious why these are your choices though? I don't think either would be particularly great for international studies. If you are confined to a MS school, though, and want to do international studies, then Ole Miss is the way to go.

I know a guy from India who went to Miss State for low cost back in the 80s. He was positive about his experience.

I saw this video on Youtube by Miss State regarding international students.
