About The Southerner

 The Southerner Yearbook

The Southerner is compiled and created by a staff comprised of undergraduate students and is the official year book of The University of Southern Mississippi. Students are responsible for all photography, reporting, design and layout of the book. The staff begins work on the book each fall, and yearbooks are distributed to the university community each May.

Students are paid for their work on staff. Working for The Southerner is great, hands-on experience for any student pursuing a degree in Graphic Design, Art, Photojournalism, Journalism or English. However, our staff is comprised of students from a variety of backgrounds and majors.
