Southern Miss students have returned to class, just days after a devastating tornado changed the landscape of the university campus. Classes began Thursday morning, four days after the twister tore through the south end of the campus, damaging or destroying several buildings, toppling numerous trees and knocking down part of a new fence.
Despite all the damage, students and administrators are sounding upbeat and are ready to get back to work.
"I thought we weren't going to have school for awhile, but now that we are back on campus, I think it's pretty good and everybody is kind of excited trying to move past everything," said Kevin Lamb, a student from New Orleans.
"When I was talking to some people today, they were saying I didn't think we would be back on campus so soon," said Chasidy Johnson, another student. "But, now that everybody worked together and got so much done, we're back on campus," she said.
"Spirits are high, everybody is moving about the campus," said Dr. Rodney Bennett, incoming president of Southern Miss. "It sort of feels like it did before the events of Sunday evening," Bennett said.
Buildings damaged or destroyed include the Alumni House and the Jazz Station.
