Become A Social Media Ambassador!

Deadline: Application will open from Monday, October 3, closing on Thursday, October 20. Applications will be reviewed and selected ambassadors will be notified by November 7.

The USM College of Arts and Sciences Content Creators are a select group of students who help create content for our social media accounts to show what it’s like attending Southern Miss through their perspective and highlighting unique experiences from their majors. The goal is to have an ambassador from each School to improve our content representation. 

Are you passionate about creating content or being on camera? Want to share your experience as a student and showcase your Southern Miss pride through photos, videos, TikToks, Instagram Reels/Stories or Youtube Shorts? Apply to become a social media ambassador to create and curate engaging and relevant content that will be shared via the College of Arts and Sciences social media accounts and/or your personal account. 

If you have any questions contact Ivonne Kawas via email at ivonne.kawasFREEMississippi.
