Encore! 2014 


Attention Pride Alumni!

When the original email was sent out a few weeks ago we were under the impression that the USM vs Rice game started at 2 p.m. That has since changed. Game time is now at 6 p.m.!

What does this mean for you?

There will no longer be an after party at Branch. Instead, your $12 will go towards a tailgate lunch provided by Stricks BBQ in Hattiesburg. A tentative schedule will look something like this:

12pm - Registration in Bennett Auditorium
1pm - Music and Marching Rehearsal with The Pride Section Leaders
2pm - Tailgate Lunch outside of Bennett
4pm - Eagle Walk
6pm - USM vs Rice!

Below is a revised version of the original email. You may use the same registration form, just remember that the $12 will not be for the mixer at Branch, it will be for the tailgate lunch.
We're looking forward to seeing everyone! Be sure to tell your fellow Alumni about this great event!
The deadline to register is still September 1st!

Dear Southern Miss Pride of Mississippi Alumni,


The Southern Miss School of Music and Pride of Mississippi Marching Band invite all Pride of Mississippi Alumni to the 5th annual Pride of Mississippi Alumni Band Day on September 27, 2014!


The total cost this year is $60. This includes:

  • Ticket to the USM vs Rice football game - $24/person
  • Tailgate Lunch outside of Bennett Auditorium - $12/person
  • A Pride of Mississippi Alumni band polo shirt. This is a one time purchase as we will be using these shirts every year - $24 (Alumni only)

Tickets to the game will seat you in the end zone near the current Pride of Mississippi. If you have season tickets elsewhere you are welcome to use them. 


A tailgate lunch will be provided for all Alumni outside of Bennett Auditorium on game day! Lunch will take place at 2 p.m.


This year, instead of a t-shirt, we have decided to design a Pride of Mississippi Alumni polo shirt. We will use these shirts every year, so once you purchase one this year you will not have to buy another. The polos will be black and we will wear them with khaki pants. Below are links to sizing charts.





All activities will take place on Saturday, September 27th starting with registration and rehearsal at 12:30 p.m. that afternoon. 


We have reserved a block of rooms at the Comfort Suites, 122 Plaza Dr., Hattiesburg, MS 39402. The rate per night will be $85 plus tax per night (includes breakfast, sleeper sofa in each room and Wi-fi). If you would like to book a room at the discounted rate please call (601)261-5555 and tell them you are part of the Pride of Mississippi Alumni. The discount will run until September 12. You can still book your room after that date, but the price may not be the same. 


If you will be able to attend this event, please RSVP IMMEDIATELY by sending in your registration form and your payment in full. The form may be found here. If you have problems opening the PDF, please send an email to The deadline to register isSeptember 1st. We will have day of registration with a $5 late fee. 


We are very excited about this year’s event! We hope to see you all on September 27th as generations of The Pride come together again! 


Don’t forget, the deadline to register is September 1st!
