Message from the Alumni Director

Dear Raider,

Like most of you, I benefited from small class sizes and great faculty while at SOU. My alma mater has influenced every facet of my life—whether in my service as an Army officer, my 15 years as a classroom teacher, or my current position working with other SOU alumni.

Please stay connected to SOU by joining the SOU Alumni Association. You’ll enjoy the benefits and strengthen your ties with the Raider family. The support you provide is significant for our students and the entire university. Join us!
