Fall Portfolio Prep Review

Fall Visit Day is designed to give high school students and their families a chance to learn what the University of Mississippi is really like directly from faculty and currently enrolled students. An academic browse fair, tours of the campus and residence halls, and sessions on admissions and financial aid are offered.
