We are very proud of the alumni at Southern Miss and grateful for the tradition they continue through sending their children to Southern Miss. In an effort to recognize these students, also known as Legacy students, we respectfully request the degree candidates to self identify their parent alumni information. Alumni parents and their children will be recognized in the ceremony, in addition to being notated in the commencement program.
Alumni and Legacy students are encouraged to attend the ‘Graduate Goodbye’ gathering in the Payne Center for a photo opportunity and to reconnect with members of the Alumni Foundation. A special Legacy backdrop will be stationed near the Alumni table espcially for these families.
