Gorgeous fall weather creates perfect atmosphere to celebrate National Disability Mentoring Day at Southern Miss.

Fall is the best season of the four. Of course, this statement is just my opinion. However, many people who share this opinion know that fall trumps the other three seasons with the Pumpkin Spice Latte alone. Well played, Starbucks! Well played. 

Fall offers a cornucopia of events for all to enjoy. Whether you are a Halloween enthusiast with a flair for the dramatic or an amateur chef who can’t wait to unveil a new recipe on Thanksgiving Day, this season has it. Fall brings amazing opportunities to celebrate.
