Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2001

My time at The University of Southern Mississippi was extremely boring. I did meet a lot of nice people there and a few of my professors were helpful. The quality of education I received was not good for the price I was paying. I found my self buying and reading books every summer for subjects/ topics my finance classes did not go over. I found the school did not really prepare students for the qualities employers were looking for from recent college graduates. And the companies that came to recruit on the campus was subpar. My advice for future potential college students is to look at the cost of the college, look at the environment around the college because you are going to be there for the next four to five years, and pay attention to what companies recruit on the campus.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 1988

My time at the University of Southern Mississippi was the best years of my life! As an 18 year old coming out of high school, college was to be my next step to independence and USM offered a wealth of resources to make that transition successful. As I matured and finally figured out what I wanted to major in, my instructors were very supportive and always had time to meet with me. I would do it all over again!

Degree: Music Teacher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

My undergraduate experience with the University of Southern Mississippi School of Music was simply amazing! The faculty always made me feel welcome and never hesitated to help with anything I needed. My fellow students helped to create such a positive learning environment! Their support, combined with the faculty's expert knowledge and structure of the courses helped me become more prepared for becoming a band director.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Southern University was a school of diversity, networking and great professors. Before and after graduation my professors made sure that I was set up for success. They wrote recommendations, introduced to people at different companies as well as check my resume for accuracy. USM is a great place to be, because your professors cares!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2006

As a person in my late 20's, going to a university was exciting yet intimidating. Initially the university was overwhelming. However after the first couple of months, I was glad I didn't give up. USM open it's doors of acceptance and diversity to me. I greatly enjoyed the intelligent staff, beautiful campus and diverse social settings it gave me. I would recommend the University of Southern MS to anyone open and willing to be intuitive, serious, and committed to receiving an overall great educational experience.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2011

I truly enjoyed my time at Southern Miss. As a double major in English and History, I had the experience of studying under some of the best professors. The university worked with me to help me achieve my goal of graduating with two degrees. My advisers were also very knowledgeable.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2008

Southern Miss is a good school for self motivating people. Unmotivated students shouldn't go to university in the first place, but unfortunately the ranks are swollen with them (Not just at Southern Miss, but any typical state school). For even moderately intelligent, unmotivated students, you can slide through and get a degree without having to really challenge yourself. For the intellectually curious student, there are more than adequate resources to really max out the quality of your education. For the most part though, you will have to seek those resources out for yourself. Research professors and find out who the "hard" ones are and then sign up for their classes. Apply to the Honor's College. Learn about resources available through the library system and how to use them. Socially, there's tons to get involved with, and Hattiesburg is actually a really cool town. You can make Southern Miss into whatever kind of experience you want it to be.

Degree: History, Other
Graduation Year: 2011

As a second generation alumni from USM, I can truly say that I enjoyed my time at the University of Southern Mississippi. I was a double major in English and History and graduated with a degree in both areas. While at USM, I encountered some of the most intelligent professors that pushed me to read, write, and think on the next level. Upon graduation, I immediately began working on my Master's Degree. Due to the rigorous programs at USM, graduate school was not extremely difficult to find success in.

This is a school with a lot of spirit and a wide variety of degree options. The music, education, and polymer science departments are especially good.
