The Mission of Georgia Southwestern State University Alumni Association is to unite and serve alumni from Georgia Southwestern and encourage alumni loyalty, support and involvement in the University.
The Alumni Association of Georgia Southwestern State University was founded in 1971 and publicly recognizes our most dedicated alumni. The Aeolian Award is chosen based on outstanding lifetime achievement as a distinguished alumni and community leader. In 1980, the development of the Professor of the Year Award, heralded the beginning of an important, ongoing tradition. This award is chosen by our graduating seniors and awarded during Spring Commencement. In 1986, the Leewynn J. Finklea Award was created to recognize outstanding alumni service to GSW and was named in honor of our first alumni director. More recently, we have offered the Excellence and Commitment to Teaching Award which is a peer nominated award given at Fall Commencement to an outstanding faculty member. The Outstanding Staff Member Award was developed to recognize members of GSW staff who have tirelessly assisted alumni above the call of duty.
The GSW Alumni Association compiles an annual book of advice from our distinguished alumni to be given to our newest alumni during the graduation ceremony that marks their entrance into the GSW alumni family. Please click here to submit a quote that we can use in our book, "A Word Before You Go".
