The University of Mississippi was chartered on February 24, 1844.
It opened its doors to 80 students four years later, and for 23 years it was
Mississippi's only public institution of higher learning.
For 110 years, it was the state's only comprehensive university.

Known affectionately as Ole Miss, Mississippi's flagship university established the fourth state-supported law school in the nation (1854) and was one of the first in the nation to offer engineering education (1854). It was one of the first in the South to admit women (1882) and the first to hire a female faculty member (1885).
