The Alumni Department

We are all LIONS!

Recently, the MSSU Alumni Association moved to a non-dues model for membership, meaning all 30,000 plus graduates of the university are now considered members. The decision to move to this model was not taken lightly. Through working with the Alumni Board and carefully analyzing our current alumni base, we felt this was the best option for the Association moving forward.

Before the change, the Alumni Association was only communicating with less than 2,000 (paid members) of our nearly 30,000 plus alumni base. We felt this was counterintuitive to the sense of Lion family we work to establish.

We are now able to open communication to all graduates and help instill a sense of loyalty to their alma mater. This translates to more mentorship opportunities for our students, more attendance at alumni events and support for our athletic teams, and a sense of pride that these individuals can take into their everyday lives - which only increases the value of an MSSU degree.

You may now be wondering - what does this mean to me? Please see our Membership Questions tab for some frequently asked questions that we will continue to add to as they come in. If you have a question of your own that is not answered, please email
