Our mission at the Center for Student success is to help students adjust to life at Southern Miss, to support academic and personal growth from the first day through graduation day, and to assist students in making the most of their time at the university. Through purposeful development, students learn to navigate new experiences, challenges, and opportunities. Result-driven programs like workshops, one-on-one success coaching, class presentations, and social organizations connect students with both the people and the information they need to be successful in college and beyond.
Connect. Persist. Succeed.
