University of Southern Mississippi Graduate Reviews

I really love USM, it has so many different majors to choose from and there is so much to do (clubs, organizations etc). I would encourage anyone to check out USM because it is in the middle of Hattiesburg so everything is within walking distance and the teachers are nice and work with students to help achieve goals.

The campus is beautiful. I love the study rooms in the library. Parking is a beast during the spring and fall. But new parking areas are in the works. There are numerous ways to get involved on campus. Dorm life is what you make of it. Single rooms are a must. Plenty of eateries nearby that deliver. I enjoy all my classes and professors!
So far, very easy school to work with. Great staff that is helpful with all questions. Tuition is reasonable and courses are rigorous. The program I am completing is very specific and geared toward my career goals.
