Once again, Oxford has been ranked as one of the Best Small College Towns in America. The home of the University of Mississippi has been named the nation’s 21stbest small college town by bestcolleges.com.

Oxford was among two SEC towns to make the list. The other, Starkville, made the list at No. 26.

“Oxford is located in the North Central Hills region of Mississippi, known for red clay hills that are densely forested,” the website’s review says. “The city has a burgeoning arts scene and diverse dining options, many of which reflect the college’s Southern heritage.”

The website also praises the diverse culture at Ole Miss, saying, “Diversity is important at Ole Miss, which is why such a high percentage of its student body consists of self-identified ethnic minorities.”

As anyone who as ever visited Oxford will tell you, once you visit, you’ll never want to leave.
