Circle of Champions

The Circle of Champions program is a comprehensive membership program for The University of Southern Mississippi's top-tier athletics donors who strive for excellence within the university's athletics programs. Since 1999, this program has raised more than $80 million toward scholarship endowments and other significant facility improvements to M.M. Roberts Stadium/Carlisle-Faulkner Field, Reed Green Coliseum, Pete Taylor Park/Hill Denson Field to include the new clubhouse and suites, new tennis courts, new Softball Complex and Stadium, and several other smaller-scale facility upgrades. The Circle of Champions program is administered through the Southern Miss Athletic Foundation, which carries the classification of a 501(c)(3) organization for tax purposes.
