Traditional Activities
Friday Night at the Fountain, the Southern Miss pep Rally
This campus and community-wide traditional event takes place on Friday evenings before all home games at Centennial Green near the fountain at Shoemaker Square. The tremendously popular, must-see event includes the Southern Miss Cheerleaders, the pride of Mississippi Marching Band, the Dixie Darlings, the Southern Misses, Seymour and plenty of Southern Miss revelry.

Eagle Walk (the location)
The Eagle Walk, located under the East Rock, has quickly become a must-see landmark when visiting the Rock. One will find memories of greatness captured and permanently displayed in a forum designed to promote the rich tradition and memorable accomplishments of Southern Miss Football. This avenue of greatness is annually painted and maintained as part of an incoming student tradition every fall.

Eagle Walk (the event)
The other fastest growing tradition on campus, Eagle Walk (the event), is a procession of the ROTC cannon, the pride of Mississippi Marching Band, Dixie Darlings, Southern Miss Cheerleaders, and your Southern Miss Football Team. The Eagle Walk procession will begin two hours prior to kick-off of all six home games beginning at Bennett Auditorium making its way down East Memorial Drive to College Drive (behind the south endzone stadium expansion), turning left on to Eagle Walk and proceeding under the stadium.
