The Department of Alumni Affairs serves as a liaison between our alumni, the GSW Alumni Association and the university.  Our purpose is to provide opportunities for our alumni to reconnect with their alma mater. Our offices are located in the Newman Alumni Center on the historical campus of Georgia Southwestern State University. The GSW Alumni Association is fortunate to hold Board of Directors' meetings in this building that was a former female dormitory and president's house. The building was lovingly restored and named in honor of Jerry Newman, Class of '59, who graciously contributed to the restoration process.
