My Experience

USM Centennial

The USM Centennial Exhibit is a very educational exhibit. The exhibit is located in Cook library. There are so many great things to learn about the University of Southern Miss. The first disply that I noticed was the Mississippi Marching Band Red Coat. The red coat was worn by the marching band during the 60's and 70's. The coat was a tribute to the Scottish heritage of the former president, William D. McCain. I browsed many of the items on display such as the 1st semester of registration cards from the students throughout the state of Mississippi.

The Centennial Exhibit is set up very neatly and organized. It displayed some older yearbooks from previous years at the college. Also, on display was one of the first outfits worn by the Dixie Darlings. Tulane College was one of Southern Miss rivals from back in previous years. The heated football games became known as the "Battle of the Bell". The team that won the game got to keep the bell for a year. The bell that is on display is black and gold. During the early years of Southern Miss seemed to be the great days. I had not realized that there was so many historical things from the 1900's that would be antiques today. I really enjoyed touring the exhibit and I am very proud of our college.

The Payne Center

The Payne Center is one of my favorite places to go on campus. It is a very relaxing center to come to after a long day in class. The Payne Center has so many varieties of workout regiments. The greatest thing about the Payne Center is that it is also setup for people with disabilities. This is awesome because they get to come and workout and not have to be treated any different than people without disabilities. I love that students get to workout for free.

Living On A Budget
Lving On A Budget A budget is a great way to live your life. Living on a budget can be very difficult for most people. Some people are not used to their money being limited due to hardship. When a person live on a budget they cut back on the certains things. They start only spending money on necessary items instead of materialistic items. The material items may include clothes, jewlery, and shoes. Living on a budget is a great way to save for the future. Many people only live for the moment and think that money troubles can't occure. A budget is so important living in the world today. It's okay to treat oneself to nice things but rememeber there's a future to live for.
