Chartered on August 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, 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.
Each member of our chapter is a key contributor to our collective success. We invite all alumni and former students of SSC/SSU to become a member of the East Atlanta Suburban Chapter.
SSUNAA membership provides the opportunity to expand your network of SSU alumni.
Enhance your resume
Becoming an active contributor to chapter activities can add new leadership skills to your professional qualifications, or hone skills you already have.
Assist current Tigers
SSUNAA membership is a great way to help current students. Whether through scholarship donations, participating in alumni panels, activity support or awards, active alumni support and involvement is a great way to pour into current students.
Increase the value of an SSU degree
According to several college reporting agencies, alumni engagement is one of several qualities used to rank major universities. Joining the SSUNAA helps bolster SSU’s reputation.
Strengthen the SSU community
Alumni association members help foster community between current & former students and administration & staff. Key communicators from the alumni association are a great sounding board for what is going on in different facets of the community. Additionally, alumni provide historical information and help to make anniversary celebrations more meaningful.
Showing pride for our SSU goes beyond wearing t-shirts, going to Homecoming, and posting on social media, although that helps, too. Alumni networks can enhance recruiting efforts and boost SSU’s image in the community. Moreover, well-informed alumni are powerful ambassadors for our alma mater in the civic and business community.
An SSUNAA membership card provides members utilization of all library privileges and discounts at the bookstore during Homecoming.
