HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) Singer and songwriter Jimmy Buffett spent the day on the campus of The University of Southern Mississippi Thursday in Hattiesburg.

Buffett ate lunch with USM President Martha Saunders, and the two along with Saunder's Husband Joe Bailey will be heading to see the Saints face off against the Vikings Thursday night.
