I love being at USM because this school is all about academics and new experiences. At the school there is always something to do or see like a dance concert, music concert, art show, a play, a musical, the orchestra, poetry, graphic design, and many more. I believe the university need to improve on the food that is served in the cafeteria, and to have healthier choses throughout campus.

Southern Miss is a good school, it just is not what you expect when going to college. At least for me (being from the North) I expected more partying, more school spirit, and just a different experience. It makes it out to look like such a spirited school, but when you go to football games there is no cheering and the stadium is never full. Any parties on campus (frat parties) require a student ID, your drinks to be in a cup, and they end at 12. This was a change because in the North parties are usually just beginning at this time. The bars are pretty fun though, including Beer Pong night at Brewsky's. Overall drinking is just really restricted. Probably 1 out of 99 girls are attractive and only a few dimes. Most of these limited girls though, have boyfriends or are stuck up. If you do not drink or party or really care for girls then Southern Miss is a good school for you. The classes are pretty manageable, the campus is nice, and the dorm rooms are almost like hotel rooms.
