We are excited to welcome you as partners in your student’s journey at The University of Southern Mississippi! We know that you play an important role in your student’s success in college. It is our goal to provide you with information about the people, places and resources that are going to help you and your student transition to college at Southern Miss. Keep up to date with information pertinent to you and your student.
The calendar and handbook are excellent resources for you as you begin your journey as a member of the Southern Miss family, but we recommend you regularly check the iSouthernMiss app to stay informed of campus events and news that’s pertinent to you.
Members of the Parent and Family Association receive monthly e-newsletters throughout the academic year. This digital newsletter is designed to help families stay connected to Southern Miss and informed regarding resources and activities available to their student on campus and in the Hattiesburg community. The e-newsletter highlights academic deadlines, campus resources, student achievements and engagement opportunities for parents and families.
The Seymour Scoop, an online webcast series, is designed to engage with YOU, Southern Miss parents and families. The Seymour Scoop streams via Facebook once a month highlighting Southern Miss resources.
Parent and Family Appreciation Week gives us an opportunity to celebrate YOU all week. We recognize the important role you play in your student's academic and social success, and we thank you for the support you give your student. Throughout the week, students are provided with fun opportunities to express their appreciation to you. A "thank you" campaign is also hosted via social media utilizing the hashtag #thankUSoMuch. We hope that by the end of the week you feel overwhelmed with how much you mean to the Golden Eagle Family.
