University of Southern Mississippi Reviews
I had a wonderful time in my degree program at the University of Southern Mississippi. I got my BFA in Theatre Performance. It was a rigorous program with great instructors who cared deeply for the students' growth. The faculty members who taught me is still intact, and are still working to produce strong actors. The students have a good deal of opportunities to act in main stage productions. I was able to act in seven main stage productions with full lighting, sound, and costumes. There were also opportunities through out the school year to perform in student produced shows. There was a great studio space that had lighting and sound with rehearsal props that students could use to produce pre-existing plays they wanted to produce as well shows they had written. Another positive is that USM has extremely talented undergraduate actors. One student I was in school with got an acting internship at Milwaukee Rep and works constantly in Chicago, another graduated from the Yale School of Drama with his MFA in Acting, another won the Kennedy Center acting competition and works regularly as a professional actor in DC, and I have been working professionally in DC, and have been accepted into Columbia University for my MFA in Acting. There are more stories from other departments, these are only stories from some of the actors I was in school with. The only thing I can think of that could have been improved is the exposure to current writers of color. There was very little exposure to these writers, and I think it would help actors of color to find their voices in the theatre. As a whole, my alma mater is a great program and establishes a very strong base of training for its students. It is a diamond in the rough, and I appreciate the training I received there.
An outstanding online construction program that is military friendly. One of the first fully online construction programs in the US. Many graduates are in management positions in the construction industry. Several of the instructors are accomplished people. Construction is a great career and Southern Miss will get you there.
I loved my time at The University of Southern Mississippi. Everyone on campus felt like family. There is a great support network on campus. I always found someone who could help when I had a problem. I always felt safe and welcome. I would recommend this school to anyone! :)
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 USM School of Social Work provides a comprehensive and engaging degree plan for individuals who desire to be future social workers. The curriculum has recently been revamped and has been adapted to meet the highest of standards to prepare students as they seek to enter the workforce as professional social workers.
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. The staff always did thier best to answer questions and help me with my plans for my future. I would recomment USM highly to anyone who is looking for an inspiring and dedicated faculty and staff.
