"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"The faculty at USM were very helpful and caring. The orientation and tour I had before I began really made my choice that this was the school for me.

"I graduated from the social work program in May. I thought it was a great program, and USM has one of the highest if not highest pass rate for the licensure exam for graduates. I passed the LSW licensure with no problem and 10 questions to spare. I was accepted into the Advanced Standing program for my Master's, and I hopped right back into school at the end of May. I would recommend Southern's social work program to anyone interested in becoming a social worker. The teachers are great and are second to none."
