The Student Government Association at the University of Southern Mississippi announced that the 14th annual Eaglepalooza will take place on Oct. 27.

"I want to thank President Rodney D. Bennett, the USM Foundation, our Alumni, and the dedicated members of the Southern Miss and Hattiesburg communities," Cloud wrote. "Because of your support of the student body and the Southern Miss Student Government Association, the community-driven efforts to "Save Eaglepalooza" were successful."
