HATTIESBURG – Nearly 400 prospective students and parents are scheduled to attend this year’s Honors Day at the University of Southern Mississippi on Nov. 4, an annual event hosted by the university’s Honors College.

Honors Day provides top academic students the opportunity to learn more about the Honors College and its academic programming. Students and their families can also participate in campus and residence hall tours, hear comments from administrators, participate in a panel discussion and meet with faculty during the event.

“We really didn’t know what to expect this year due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina,” said Dr. Ken Panton, dean of the Honors College. “Frankly, we were thinking that our numbers might be down, so we are thrilled at the prospect of having nearly 400 students visit our campus.

“Obviously students are aware of the reputation and prestige of our Honors College, and they want to learn more about how they can join our ranks.”
