Activities and Events

Majors are invited to the annual department banquet to be held Thursday, April 24th at 5:30 p.m.

Due to electrical problems we will not be able to use the Powerhouse. Instead we will be in the Cochran Center, 1st floor, Magnolia Room. This is on the back right side. You can enter off the courtyard between the stadium and the Cochran Center or come in the Fresh Food Company and go to the dining room on the right in the back.

Ms. Katie Jack, of the U.S. State Department, is our speaker this year and I'm sure you will find her comments interesting and useful. Hope to see you there.Please RSVP Ms. Mary Jo McKay at 601-266-4271 or maryjo.mckay@usm.edu.
