Office of Student Activities at The University of Southern Mississippi
is offering travel opportunities for students to complement their
academic experience at Southern Miss.
Southern Excursions, a new program sponsored by Student
Activities, offer off-campus learning experiences for students through
field trips to museums and other sites of historical and educational
interest, as well as to cultural events.
"Southern Excursions are educational trips sponsored
by the Office of Student Activities that expose Southern Miss students
to unique, off-campus experiences that will broaden both their minds
and their horizons," said Mary Beth Walker, assistant director
of student activities.
A trip to Memphis to visit the National Civil Rights
Museum, historic Beale Street and the famous Stax Museum of American
Soul Music is scheduled for Feb. 4-5 as part of Black History Month.
The cost is $65 and includes bus fare, lodging and admission to
both museums. Sign-up for the excursion is limited to 55 people
and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Meals are
not included in the fee.
A second excursion is tentatively set for the Placido
Domingo concert April 2 at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi.
"Southern Excursions is the kind of program that
will enhance our students' academic experience here at Southern
Miss," said Barbara Ross, director of student activities. "It's
a great opportunity."
