Hattiesburg Campus Visit FAQs
When is the best time to schedule a campus visit?
Weekdays – when classes are in session – afford the best insight into the Southern Miss experience and campus life. Our mission is to provide you with a campus visit experience that addresses all of your needs, and we are best able to do that during the week while classes are in session so that you can access as many campus resources as needed.
How long does a typical campus tour last?
A campus visit usually lasts two hours.
Why is it necessary that I schedule a campus visit? Can’t I just show up?
Walk-in visitors will be accommodated as much as possible, but we cannot guarantee that all appointment and special requests will be met unless your visit is scheduled in advance.
Can I schedule a campus tour for a school or community group?
Group tours for high-school aged students should be scheduled through Admissions. If you want to schedule a campus visit for groups of younger students or for any other non-high school-aged audience, please contact University Communications at 601.266.4491 for further assistance.
