•Lets Go International•

Farewell International Exchange Students

At the beginning of the fall semester, twelve international exchange students enrolled at The University of Southern Mississippi ready to experience life as a student in the United States. Over the course of the semester, these students have attended classes, joined student organizations, made new friends and have gained a better understanding of American and southern culture. As the semester comes to a close, seven of these students return home to various places around the globe, including Holland, Germany, Spain, and Australia. We would like to wish the students safe travels home, and hope that they know no matter where they go, they will always be a Golden Eagle.
