What I liked about Southern Miss:

The University of Southern Mississippi has a great faculty, which helped me throughout my studies, as did the students who worked alongside me during my four years here. Even though a slump has occurred recently in our football team, which I believe we will rebound.  Southern Miss Athletics are great and make me proud to be a Golden Eagle.
