Chartered on Aug. 24, 2013, the East Atlanta Suburban Chapter (EASC) is affiliated with the Savannah State University National Alumni Association (SSUNAA). The alumni in the communities of the east Atlanta, Georgia suburbs–Butts, Gwinnett, Henry, Jasper, Morgan, Newton, Rockdale, Spalding and Walton counties–work individually and collectively to help Savannah State University fulfill its mission to develop productive members of a global society through high quality instruction, scholarship, research, service and community involvement and realize its vision to become the institution of choice in our region, where students maximize their potential in a nurturing environment that embraces social and intellectual diversity.
Established in 1890, Savannah State University is the oldest public historically black college or university in Georgia and the oldest institution of higher learning in the city of Savannah. The university’s 4,900 students select majors from 30 undergraduate and six graduate programs in three colleges ‐ Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Business Administration and Sciences and Technology ‐ and the School of Teacher Education.
