HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - It's Golden Eagle Welcome Week at USM.
Friday approximately 1600 students moved in to the dorms at Century Park South.
"It's managed chaos" said USM police chief Bob Hopkins, " I wanted to let the Hattiesburg community know that it's crowded today on-campus and tomorrow, so just bear with us."
A welcome pep rally is planned on Sunday morning August 16 at 11 AM at Reed Green Coliseum.
Classes begin on Wednesday.
