A great student for this school would be someone who likes smaller town living. This is a great transitioning school from living with parents to being on your own. This is also a good school for someone who has the ability to push themselves in their career. This school is not all that competitive and students who are self motivators would do well at a school like this.

The kind of person that should attend this school needs to be responsible, hard-working, detail oriented, able to handle stress, tons of home-work and deadlines. You need a positive attitude, excellent note taking, memorizations and organization and mostly you need to be competitive to push yourself to the ultimate limits of your capabilities. Self-thinker and able to let go and have fun when the time permits. Creatvity is one of the best things you can have when you enter any college and make friends and keep those friends they will help you get throudh it all.

I think creative and curious people should come to my school. It is full of adventure and good times and you just know how to embrace it. Southern has some of the greatest school spirit around and its really important you can be a part of that as well. I feel only people who can leave USM better than they found it should come here.

It depends on what is meant by the question, "what kind of person?" USM is very diverse university. I think people of every background fits in wonderfully at USM. I don't think USM is open to a certain kind of person. It's easy to get there, just buckle down and do what you have to do to stay there.

nicole

I think that Southern Miss is a perfect school who would like to attend a school that is very cultural and is a replica of the united states. Southern miss has a great amount of black and white students so there is not really a sense of dominance. It also is great for peopl who like a smaller setting when it comes to learning. Southern miss is not small but it is perfect for learning.

Christian

The kind of person who should attend the University of Southern Mississippi is someone who is a dedicated student who is interested in majoring in either a science or a medical field. I also believe that this person should enjoy a large but not too big campus as well as small classes with direct one on one proffesor attention. Students interested in attending this university should also have interests in school spirit. There is an abundance of school spirit at this school and the sooner you get into the swing of things the more fun and success you will have
