Sport Management Club

The Sport Management Club became an active charter member of The University of Southern Mississippi in 2013. The purpose of the club is to provide educational, social, and practical experiences for sport management majors and minors. It exists primarily for undergraduate and graduate students in the sport management field as a means to network with other professionals in similar fields. Other students are welcome and encouraged to join. Requirements to join include maintaining a 2.0 GPA and yearly membership dues. 

Since 2013, the club has raised funding by working concessions, selling sponsorships, and working with the junior eagle club fun land. The money raised has provided facilities tours for our students.
