For those of you who graduate in less than two weeks, it does not mean you have to say goodbye to Vol State. Alumni can always be an active part of the Vol State Community by being a member of the Alumni Association.
“It’s always exciting to come back and see what’s going on,” said Lori Johnson, resource development specialist. Johnson says the Alumni Association likes to encourage students to come back to campus and see what's new.

Alumni can also make donations toward the Alumni Scholarship, a scholarship that is available to any relative of an alumnus. In the past, there has been at least one scholarship given per year, but this past year the foundation was able to give away two. More information about the alumni scholarship can be found here.
Once you graduate, you automatically become apart of the Alumni Association. However, you will want to make sure all your information is up-to-date. The Alumni Association will be available at graduation rehearsal in order to update your information, or you can update the information here.
"We want you to feel like a part of the Alumni Association when you are a student, and then once you graduate, we want you to feel like you are still part of the campus," said Johnson.
