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. A special Legacy backdrop will be stationed in the Payne Center for photo opportunities near the Alumni table espcially for these families.
Following both Hattiesburg ceremonies, the Southern Miss Alumni Association invites graduates and their guests to visit the Payne Center for post-graduation photo opportunities.
