    In this video, he discusses his transformational Southern Miss story—one that included the Honors College, personal growth, and faculty mentors that contributed to his career successes. Southern Miss Alumni Association members can also read more about Dr. Anderson in the latest edition of The Talon.

  • Today, The University of Southern Mississippi celebrates the 109th anniversary of our legislative founding.

    March 30, 1910, is the institution’s official birthday, and in 1955, the Alumni Association designated March 30 as Mississippi Southern College Day. The day was to be observed wherever former students resided, and its purpose was “to build up a little more custom and tradition concerning the college.” The day, since re-named Founders’ Day, has been observed in some fashion ever since.

    Whenever Founders' Day falls on a weekend or a holiday, it is celebrated on the following Monday.
