HATTIESBURG, Miss. – As the new school year nears the University of Southern Mississippi welcomes new students as well as a new Honors College Dean.

Dr. Ellen Weinauer says she’s extremely excited about the new position.

Though this will be her first semester as dean, Weinauer has taught in the university’s English Department for the past 20 years.

She has replaced Dr. David Davies, who stepped down after seven years.

Weinauer says the University’s Honors College will be welcoming over 170 new students to the program this year.

“It’s really a lot of hands on work with the students. They are wonderful, creative, interesting, sharp students. So the first thing that I’m excited about is getting to know them,” said Weinauer.
