Mission Statement FacebookGSW Alumni Association 

The Mission of Georgia Southwestern State University Alumni Association is to unite and encourage alumni loyalty, support and involvement in the University. 

In an effort to increase enrollment and retention of students at GSW, the Alumni Association utilizes alumni event proceeds and donations to offer scholarships to incoming and current GSW students with family members who are alumni. Our current raffle ticket fundraiser will benefit this scholarship. The Alumni Legacy Scholarship application deadline is February 15.

The Alumni Association also recognizes GSW faculty and staff who have contributed to the mission of the association. In 1980, the development of the Professor of the Year Award heralded the beginning of an important, ongoing tradition. This award is chosen by  graduating seniors from the previous year and is awarded in the Spring. The Outstanding Staff Member Award was developed to recognize members of GSW staff who have tirelessly assisted alumni above the call of duty.
