Kaitlyn Taylor
President

Hometown: Hattiesburg, MS
Transferred From: Xavier University of Louisiana
Major: Kinesiology

How has getting involved at USM helped your transition to the Southern Miss community?

Getting involved at USM has helped me tremendously because it gave me a purpose on campus. When I graduate, I want to have helped make a difference not only in the community but within Southern Miss as well. I wanted to involve myself with people of good repertoire who could not only help me with my future endeavors, but make transitioning to success as a Golden Eagle easier and more memorable!

 

 

 

Joshua Gallagher
Vice President

Hometown: San Antonio, Florida
Transferred From: Pasco Hernando State College
Major: Kinesiology

How has getting involved at USM helped your transition to the Southern Miss community?
As an out-of-state transfer student, getting involved at USM has really helped me make connections in the Hattiesburg Area. As a pre-med student I am very dependent on local professional networks. I felt out of place during my transition and far behind my peers in terms of achievements and academic prowess. Southern Miss helped create a foundation in Hattiesburg and since I have been able to develop new friends, mentors, and professional connections, without whom I could not have succeeded.

How has getting involved at USM helped your transition to the Southern Miss community?
Getting involved has truly made my transfer experience 100% better. When first getting onto campus, I didn't know many people, but since joining a few organizations I have begun to bloom. Southern Miss is filled with amazing people, and the more you become engaged with, the more fun and easier your experience becomes.
