USM students sign "Creed Week" pledge to respect others on campus

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hundreds of Southern Miss students are making a public promise to respect fellow students.

This week, they've been signing a pledge to honor the The Creed at Southern Miss, which is a decades-old declaration endorsing respect for others and civil behavior.

It was re-affirmed during a centennial celebration at USM four years ago.

It's all part of "Creed Week," a aeries of activities hosted by the Student Government Assn. which focuses on safety and civility across campus. 

"Creed Week is actually a new thing for us, but we actually have had our creed for a long time," said Jeffrey George, president of the Student Government Assn. "It was adopted by the Student Government Association back in the 1950's. It's something that's just been around but hasn't been acknowledged. We really believe as a Southern Miss community, this is something we should embrace," he said.

So far, about 400 students have signed the pledge.
