Career Services Visit To Sci Tech

Every year, we work with Southern Miss Career Services to get helpful information to our students about jobs, resume preparation, and so much more. 

Recently, Career Services visited the Bobby Chain Technology building on the Hattiesburg campus to give our students important information and help make connections between students, alumni, employers, while offering our students information on career options. 

Career Services is a great service for our students to take advantage of, especially as graduation day draws nearer.

High School Outreach Day

The Society of Physics Students (SPS) and the Department of Physics and Astronomy hosted students from Pearl River Central High School today.

Students were welcomed to campus by SPS members and faculty.  They then were able to tour Physics Laboratories of various faculty members.

The College of Science and Technology faculty and student organizations work to meet the university’s goals of outreach to our state and the region.

Here are some pictures from the visit:
