CAMPUS STREETS SURROUNDING SOUTHERN MISS TO BE RENAMED BY UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY

HATTIESBURG -- Several streets around The University of Southern Mississippi's Hattiesburg campus will soon be renamed with the help of students, alumni, faculty and staff.

"We want our street names to bring back memories and have significance to the university community," said Bob Pierce, director of the Southern Miss Alumni Association.

Streets currently under consideration for name changes are East Memorial Drive, West Memorial Drive, Southern Drive, University Boulevard, Sunset Drive, Coliseum Drive and a portion of Pearl Street from Sunset Drive to Ross Boulevard.

Anyone interested in submitting names for consideration should send suggestions via e-mail to alumni@usm.edu. Submissions will be accepted through Dec. 1.
