USM In-Person Operations to Resume at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 16

In-person operations at all University of Southern Mississippi locations in Hattiesburg and on the Gulf Coast will resume at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 16. In-person classes originally scheduled to begin prior to 10 a.m. will be held online.

Deans and directors are asked to continue to allow for flexibility for students, faculty, and staff who are unable to return to on-site work or participate in in-person or online classes on Tuesday due to impacts related to severe winter weather in their areas.

Upon returning on Tuesday, students, faculty and staff are advised to be aware of their surroundings, and to use caution when navigating by vehicle or foot as some roadways and sidewalks, especially those in shaded areas, could potentially be hazardous.

University officials are continuing to monitor the weather in conjunction with local emergency management officials. Should conditions warrant an additional change to the University’s operations, the Eagle Alert emergency communication system will again be activated.
