The Honors College at Southern Miss has been thriving as an independent college for more than four decades. Joining the Honors College means being a part of a diverse community of highly motivated students, engaged faculty, and supportive staff.

Our curious and driven Honors scholars complete a four-year developmental curriculum. Small classes allow thought-provoking discussion, creative professors afford interdisciplinary and active learning, and students graduate having completed undergraduate research. Our bar is high and our Honors Eagles soar to the occasion.

During Honors Day, you will join current and future Honors College students on campus at Southern Miss to: 

Make a weekend of Honors Day, and stick around for the Southern Miss vs. Marshall home football game on Saturday, November 3, in The Rock! Be a part of some of Southern Miss’s most time-honored game day traditions:

  • Eagle Walk – Two hours before kickoff, fans line up along College Drive and Eagle Walk Drive to watch The Pride of Mississippi Marching Band, Seymour, the Dixie Darlings, cheerleaders, and the Golden Eagle football team parade to The Rock. Keep an ear open for a blast from the ROTC cannon signaling the start of Eagle Walk!
  • Tailgating – Check out the vibrant tailgating scene around campus, making sure you visit The District. Situated south of the Ogletree Alumni House, The District is one of the most popular tailgating spots on campus for students, alumni, and friends.
  • Game Day at the Rock – Join us in M.M. Roberts Stadium, affectionately known as “The Rock,” for the Southern Miss vs. Marshall football game! Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m.

 *There is no cost to attend Honors Day. Upon registration, football tickets will be available for purchase at a discounted rate for Honors Day attendees.
