treasured past

Throughout 2010, The University of Southern Mississippi is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its legislative founding. In just 100 short years, Southern Miss has grown from a local teaching college into a nationally-known institution of higher learning that educates thousands of students at multiple locations every year.

Clearly there is no better time to celebrate than our Centennial, and plans have been made to ensure that this momentous anniversary captures both our treasured past and our golden future.

This site has been designed to give you both a quick look at our past and a glimpse of the bright future that lies ahead. Please visit our page frequently for more information and opportunities to be a part of the Centennial Celebration.
