There is a valid distinction between The University and Ole Miss even though the separate threads are closely
interwoven.The University is buildings, trees, and people. Ole Miss is mood, emotion, and personality. One is physical, and the other
is spiritual. One is tangible and the other intangible.The University is respected, but Ole Miss is loved. The University gives a diploma and regretfully terminates tenure, but
one never graduates from Ole Miss.
