There are many, many different ways to get involved on the Southern Miss campus. In fact the Southern Miss website states that there are "Over 270 Ways to get involved on campus." That site is such a great resource to find clubs to join whether they are department related or independent of academia. It's a great way to meet new people, network professionally, and make life-long friends. Two of the organizations that I am involved with are the Gay/Straight Alliance (GSA) and United Students Against Sweatshops/Student-Farmworker Alliance (USAS/SFA).
GSA: The Gay Straight Alliance of USM is meant to establish and maintain a safe and welcoming environment on campus and throughout Hattiesburg for gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender individuals, allies, and gay affirming organizations.
USAS/SFA: United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS) is part of a national movement of student groups and individual students fighting in solidarity with workers for sweatshop-free labor conditions and workers' rights.
FIND SOMETHING TO DO!! It's fun and something to add to your resume.
