Your Alumni Association

The Millsaps College Alumni Association is open and free to all alumni and is comprised of chapters in different areas across the country. Each of the chapters, and the association as a whole, focuses on encouraging support for Millsaps and building connections among alumni.

The association, and each chapter, has six areas of focus: to assist the College in recruitment of prospective students (Admissions Committee); to encourage alumni giving (Giving Committee); to strengthen career networking opportunities (Career Development/Networking Committee);  to build alumni engagement in the life of the College (Visibility and Engagement Committee); to support and develop alumni chapters (Chapter Development), and to assist in planning and implementing special events (Homecoming and Special Events Committee)

Meet the Alumni Association Board of Directors.
