The University of Southern Mississippi will host its annual Founders’ Day Celebration in Hattiesburg and on the Gulf Coast Tuesday, March 29 and Wednesday, March 30 in recognition of the 106th anniversary of the establishment of the University by the Mississippi Legislature.

On Founders’ Day we celebrate the Southern Miss spirit.”
