University of Southern Mississippi is a public research institution in Hattiesburg, MS. Southern Miss operates another campus in Long Beach and operates five research and teaching sites. The school is home to the gulf research laboratory in Ocean Springs and is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as having “High Research Activity.” The university is known for its fine arts program, polymer science research center, and British studies program, which sends students overseas to London.
Overall, I find USM to be homely. The university maintains a calm, collected atmosphere while still encouraging academic growth and success. I love the fact that I can get the big college experience and the small town college feel from one place at the same time.

USM is a great college! I have learned so much valuable information since I've been here that has enhanced my learning experience. I am proud to be a Golden Eagle!
