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.

Statistics show that a post-secondary degree does indeed matter in today's competitive marketplace.

If you were to ask a classroom of first grade students what career path they plan to choose, you will likely receive answers such as “fireman” or “astronaut,” probably based on the excitement of riding on a fire truck or a spaceship, or “teacher,” based on the example set each day by their own teacher.

However, as these students grow and mature, discover and develop their own talent and aptitude, and consider many other factors, including job availability and salary, these career aspirations often change.
