The Southern Miss School of Communication is pleased to announce details on our upcoming
100 year celebration of the student newspaper. The 2018 Mass Communication and Journalism
Symposium is dedicated to those who served in some way on the student newspaper during
their time at Southern Miss, and who have used their careers to serve their communities
and others. “Cheers to 100 Years! A Celebration of the Student Newspaper” will be
held on the Hattiesburg campus Thursday, October 18, 2018.
The celebration highlights the long time success of the student newspaper and the
profound effect it has had on Southern Miss and the Hattiesburg community through
the years. The event will include a ticketed luncheon at which three extraordinary
journalists will be inducted into the Southern Miss MCJ Hall of Fame at noon. The
2018 class of inductees are listed below with a link to their biography for viewing.
A panel discussion open to all students, faculty and guests will follow at 1:30 pm
