About Hattiesburg, MS

  • University of Southern Mississippi

    Creative Campus

    According to its website, the University of Southern Mississippi is “one of only 31 universities in the United States nationally accredited in all four arts disciplines; theater, dance, art and music.” Whether you’re pursuing a degree in performance and choreography or have all the coordination of a giraffe on roller skates, USM is the place to be. “Southern Miss” not only boasts one of the strongest fine arts programs in the country, it’s affordable to boot. You’ll have plenty of money left over to buy new paintbrushes. USM boasted an enrollment of 17,254 as of Fall 2010, with students from all 50 states and 70 different countries. You’re just as likely to party with a Jazz Studies major from Pittsburgh as with a Geology major from Paris—now that’s what we call variety.

    Learn in Luxury

    Did you know that Jimmy Buffett once attended Southern Miss? Even someone living in Margaritaville needs a place to stay. There are luxury apartments and townhouses around campus, many of which offer amenities like pools, fitness centers, and tennis courts. If daily dips in the pool sound preferable to fire drills and community bathrooms, you’ll want to look for off-campus housing fast. Find a roommate and make your search easier.

    Music, Movies, and More

    If the Hydrographic Science Research Center isn’t your idea of a cool weekend hang, there are plenty of fun places to visit in Hattiesburg when you get bored of mapping the ocean floor. Hop in your car or hitch a ride on the Hub City Transport. Rock your black-and-gold hoodie at Mugshots Bar and Grill or Keg and Barrel. If you’re not down with the jukebox, visit T-Bones Records & Cafe and pick up some old-school hip-hop albums (or Barry Manilow, if that’s your thing). Tired of watching gross videos on YouTube with your roommate? Head over to the Grand Theatre and watch something that won’t scar you for life. There’s tons of stuff to do around USM’s campus when that flash mob at the Thad Cochran Center doesn’t work out.
