University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast students have elected Amanda Crowe of Gulfport, a master’s in business administration student, to represent the student body at the university’s upcoming homecoming and Spirit Week festivities on both the Gulf Park and Hattiesburg campuses.
Crowe, whose campus activities include Southern Connection Leadership Team member, Student Government Association representative, and Collegiate DECA, says she grateful to everyone who supported her during the homecoming elections and that she is honored to represent Southern Miss Gulf Coast while attending homecoming events.
“I see this as an opportunity to bridge the gap between Southern Miss Gulf Coast and the Hattiesburg campus,” said Crowe. “I’m somewhat both a traditional student and a non-traditional student, so I feel like I am someone with whom all students can relate.”
In addition to her student leadership activities, Crowe has also served as volunteer with Golden Eagle Challenge Community Service Project and the American Heart Association. Outside of the classroom, Crowe serves as a work-study student for the College of Business.
Southern Miss Gulf Coast will host the 2nd Annual Golf Cart Spirit Parade at 11:45 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, that will pass the library and south lawn on the Gulf Park campus. Festivities will continue after the parade at a reception honoring the homecoming maid.
Southern Miss will present the homecoming court at half-time during the football game against Marshall on Saturday, Oct. 20. Kick-off is at 6 p.m.
