3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like my school. SMTTT!

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus needs more lighting, especially in dark areas.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The quad needs to be renovated. It is not fair to have one side of campus to have such beautiful dorms and the leftover freshmen or the none scholarship freshmen to live in Wilbur the is run down and not a newer building.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Student involvement is based on sorority requirements as well as social gatherings. But the school spirit is apparent among most students and alumni. The facilities are nice and getting some improvements. This review is towards football. The other sports are popular among a few.

Overall Experience: The experience is fun but I sometimes I feel as if this school is not for me. As a black student I sometimes feel isolated in some areas, as if there is a black community and a white community (instead of one community of people) at some events on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm still trying to get use to the larger class sizes but am adjusting well. All of the professors are experts in their field for sure I've only had any problems with one professor and that was just because he was too smart to be teaching the second level biology but after lots of tutoring I was able to understand his teaching and learn what to study. The variety of courses are almost overwhelming if it wasn't for my advisors I would have nearly no idea of what classes to take to best suite what I want to pursue in life. I feel that the choices I've made to go to USM have put me in the classes with the plans of giving me the best opportunity to succeed and I greatly appreciate that.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The value of your degree is greatly valued and well respected from USM. My plans are to continue on to medical school after graduating and I know that the school your degree is from is very important. The alumni that I have met who are taking the same route that I am on and they believe it is the best choice as well. The schools staff goes above and beyond to help those who are willing to be helped and I appreciate it everyday.

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus, the school does a great job of being constantly patrolled and enforcing their rules. I've never seen or been involved in any crime on campus and I believe that is one of the main reasons I feel safe there, I've never even seen so much as a fight on campus. The only problems that I know of even occurring are at fraternity parties with girls getting drugged or claiming to have been drugged but I know that the number of those occurrence are by far lower than at other larger schools and that is due to our amazing security measures.

Campus Housing: I was only in the dorms for one semester but not because of any negative reasons caused by housing. It's the safest and most convienant option for students, it was just cheaper for me to stay off campus. You meet a lot of good people in the dorms and make friends and I miss that aspect but it's just more financially appropriate for me to stay off campus and I want to save my parents as much money as I can.

Greek Life: I'm personally not a fan of Greek life, I know they do their required charity events but to the people in them if your not in a fraternity they don't like you. I'm able to get in to the parties because I'm an athlete but I've never had a good experience at one. It's always a hassle getting in because of the alumni who are there who have been graduated for 6 years try to act like bouncers and start fights with people. I've never had this happen to me personally but I don't like seeing other people bullied or treated differently for no reason. Other than the parties Greek life doesn't affect the school social atmosphere. In the long run its better that I don't like going to their parties to keep myself out of bad situations.

Athletics: I run track and field for USM and I love it but it gets very overshadowed by football even though we have multiple conference champions every year. Our facilities are great compared to what I'm use to back home where we did not even have a track to practice on but all I hear from other school is that our track is nicknamed the junkyard and it is true compared to their facilities. If we are beating them with our facilities now think of what we could do with the facilities the other schools have. The fan support is amazing if it's for football or baseball but I know my friends who do the other sports like tennis, golf, and volleyball get no where near what the bigger sports gets and that's understandable I just wish it wasn't such a gap in the fan support. All in all the athletics are amazing especially their tutoring program for athletes has helped me personally.

Overall Experience: Southern miss was the best academic decision that I believe I could have made. I had multiple choices in where I was going to college, but was having to look at track and field programs as well as academic. Southern Miss's Biology an Biochemistry department made it really stand out to me as I am a Molecular Biology major. I have had nothing but help from the professors I've had. They don't coddle or baby you because you are adults and that is what I like about the teaching at Southern. I believe the main reason I love this school so much is how safe I feel on campus. No matter what time it is, whether I'm leaving the library at 2 am or waking up to get an early start, I have never felt scared or threatened because it just feels like I'm at home. I have made numerous friends who support me by studying constantly with me and even cheering me on at track meets. There is no doubt that I would choose Southern Miss every time if I could do it all over again.
