HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Approximately 1,800 Southern Miss students are receiving degrees this weekend at three commencement exercises in Hattiesburg and on the Gulf Coast.

On Friday, students in the fields of Business, Health and Education and Psychology took home degrees at a morning ceremony at Reed Green Coliseum, while students in Arts and Letters, Nursing and Science and Technology did the same in an afternoon commencement.

A third ceremony will be held Saturday on the coast.

"It feels wonderful," said Andrea Bradley, who graduated with a degree in criminal justice. "It feels so good to be finally done," she said.  

"I wouldn't trade anything, it's a great university, I respect it," said graduate Taylor McCrary. "I have my undergrad here and I'm glad to get my masters here as well," he said.   

Keynote speaker for the Hattiesburg ceremonies was Luckyday Foundation attorney Holmes Adams.
