HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The University of Southern Mississippi has hosted a meeting of the State College Board for the first time in three years.

The Board met Thursday morning at the Thad Cochran Center.

Board members got an update on USM programs and accomplishments from Southern Miss president Dr. Rodney Bennett.

They also listened to personal stories from two USM scholarship recipients.

"We're on a rotational schedule, so that we hit all eight campuses over a two or three-year period," said Dr. Hank Bounds, IHL commissioner. "And so, we're delighted to be back on the campus of Southern Miss," he said. 

Next month, the Board will meet at Alcorn State University.
