LIS blog

The first thing that entered my mind while walking through the centennial display of the University of Southern Mississippi was the amount of change that has taken place over the years.  In 1910, the University was founded.  The display shows pictures taken around this time and it is amazing to see just how little was around Hattiesburg at this point in time.  The University was first a teachers college and named Mississippi Normal college.  The display has many old relics that are extremely interesting and also display the change that has occurred very well.  Although the room where all of the University’s history is displayed is not very large, the people who set up the exhibit did an excellent job of showing the progression of the Campus.  As I walked through and read all of the captions it really made me appreciate how far this place has come.
