Omicron Delta Epsilon-Alpha Chapter of Mississippi
Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE) creates faculty-student interaction in an informal setting by organizing joint student/faculty panel discussions, special lectures where students serve as discussants. Students, under faculty guidance, will submit papers to international conferences for participation and publications. ODE was established by Professor John Commons in the 1800s. Represented on a majority of campuses, it is one of the oldest international economics honor societies. It meets every year during the Allied Social Sciences Annual Meetings, where papers from its annual essay contest are read.

Southern Miss Political Society
Southern Miss Political Society is a bipartisan political group at Southern Miss. Our aim is to create a place where we can come together to discuss politics and learn from our different viewpoints. This group is open to all students at USM who are interested in politics, not just political science majors and minors.
We encourage you to come to one of our meeting and see what we are all about and become a member. Contact Dr. Marija Bekafigo (LAB 425), (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
