Welcome to the Student Success Site at Southern Miss!
Southern Miss is committed to creating an environment where students succeed. We believe students who become invested in their education early on, are well advised, and are engaged by their professors will graduate and and go on to successful and fulfilling lives.

Who Maintains This Site?
This website grew out of the Southern Miss Student Success Initiative, and brings together in one place links to all the resources on campus that exist to help students, from how to choose a meal plan to how to avoid plagiarism to where family members should park when they come to visit.
This site is a work in progress, curated and maintained by the College of Arts and Letters. If there's a helpful link that we're missing, or if you notice information that needs to be updated, please contact webmaster Danielle Sypher-Haley, web designer for the College of Arts and Letters. Thank you for your patience as we work to make this a one-stop shop for student success.
