Who can get involved?
All students are encouraged to participate in Varsity! This is an opportunity for you to get plugged into the community, serve your peers, and gain leadership experience. Students do not need to meet any requirements to sign up for postings … all we ask is that you bring an openness to meeting new people, embracing inclusivity, and creating positive changes at our university. We are all Golden Eagles, we are all SGA, and everyone is on the Varsity Team.
Potential Varsity Events/Initiatives:
*Dates and descriptions will be updated regularly.
* The Miss USM Pageant
* Lighting the Way for the Holiday Season
* The Big Event
It’s On Us
* Mental Health Awareness Week
The 2018 Mental Health Awareness Week will take place September 17-21. This week consists of various events focused on educating students about the definition and prevalence of mental health and learning what we can do to care for each other and ourselves. Millions of Americans suffer from poor mental health, yet many do not seek treatment because of the negative stigma associated with it. Mental Health Awareness Week is designed to fight that stigma and provide Southern Miss students with support and education.

Varsity is an opportunity for all Southern Miss students to get involved in SGA. This new platform allows members in the community to volunteer, serve, and lead in SGA events and initiatives (see opportunities below). Because you sign up for individual postings, Varsity requires a low time commitment. Try it out – you might make new friends and discover a passion for serving the community in a unique way!
How do you get involved?
You can check out the website regularly to view Varsity postings and sign up for the events or initiatives that interest you. Fun fact: you can sign up for as many or few Varsity postings as you want – there will be plenty to choose from! A calendar with events and initiatives will be published later this summer. After you sign up for a Varsity posting, we will contact you with training dates and details.
SGA's 15th annual Eaglepalooza will be held in Downtown Hattiesburg on September 15th, 2018. This music concert has become a staple at Southern Miss and is an opportunity for students and community members to celebrate our great university and city. Eaglepalooza has featured nationally-known performers such as Gavin DeGraw, Train, American Idol Season 11 Winner, Phillip Phillips, and most recently B.o.B. Because this is one of our largest events, we need a plethora of student volunteers to help make the concert a success!
