WLOX Editorial: We applaud USM's stand for quality education

The University of Southern Mississippi is taking a stand; a stand for quality education and quality students. The new Southern Miss President, Dr. Rodney Bennett, is taking a rather simple step to improve the quality at Southern Miss.

No longer can someone enroll as late as the 10th day of classes. This meant a dip in enrollment this fall. But those who really want an education got registered in plenty of time.

Southern Miss is also expanding student involvement in health research. Now, not only are graduate students involved in research, but so are undergraduate students.

President Bennett has a vision for Southern Miss of quality education for quality students. We applaud his stand and leadership for this institution.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
