In honor of National Transfer Student Week October 18-22, Jackson State University is partnering with Michigan’s Washtenaw Community College to create a program for students to transfer their associate degrees, with perks such as guaranteed admission and access to state education. Mississippi Valley State University and Southern University-New Orleans also participate in the program.

The partnership guarantees admission to JSU, MVSU and SUNO for WCC students who successfully complete the requirements, according to a statement from JSU. The program ensures that credits and degrees will be transferred seamlessly and provides student support and mentorship from COE staff, faculty, and HBCU alumni. Students can also organize HBCU college tours and community development activities, monthly career workshops, and student leadership summits.

WCC will host a panel during National Transfer Students Week to allow representatives from JSU, MVSU and SUNO to discuss the partnership and information on transfer students to their schools. Current and prospective WCC students and families and other community members can register to attend the virtual session from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 20.

USM’s biennial outdoor sculpture exhibition

The University of Southern Mississippi is currently hosting its biennial outdoor sculpture exhibition, which features the work of nationally recognized artists and will remain on the Hattiesburg campus until March 2023.

The USM College of Arts and Sciences, the Art and Design program and Partners for the Arts are the sponsors of the exhibition. A committee made up of a student, professor and staff from the College of Arts and Sciences selected the pieces from dozens of entries through a blind jury, according to a statement from the USM.

Works on display include “Action Reaction,” an acrylic and stainless steel spray paint by Chris Wubbena that is installed in front of the Liberal Arts Building; “Portal”, a patinated steel piece by Kelsey Wishik located in front of the International Center; “When one door closes, another door opens…”, a set of steel pieces by Matt Moyer located between the Cook and McCain libraries; and “Yellow Roses,” a mild steel piece by Laura E. Walters that USM will install at a later date behind the Liberal Arts Building.
