How to Tour the Ole Miss Campus During Coronavirus Quarantine

The University of Mississippi is renowned for having one of the most beautiful campuses in America, as acknowledged by the likes of USA Today. There has long been a saying among campus recruiters: If we can get them to campus once for a visit, they always want to come back.

But, getting to campus at this moment is not possible, due to the 2020 coronavirus quarantine, that has most of America at home, and Ole Miss students finishing classes online for this semester.
