SU Alumni Chapter Participates in Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity's Annual College Fair

The SUAF-WDC Chapter participated in the Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Epsilon Lambda Education Foundation's Annual College Fair on November 12, 2016 at the Southern Regional Technology Recreation Complex in Ft. Washington, MD.  Several chapter members manned the Southern University booth at the popular event.  Students and parents who stopped by the table were educated on the wonderful offerings that the Southern University System campuses have to offer.   Below are a few pictures taken at the 2015 event.

SU National Academic Signing Day

Students from the Washington, D.C. area signed letters of intent to attend one of the Southern University System campuses. Students were presented with welcome gifts and had the opportunity to take their first student ID picture.   Even some of the alumni got to relive their student years by taking an ID picture.  The students, along with their parents and SU alumni enjoyed the day with fellow students and alumni across the nation.  Enjoy some of the pictures from the Day.

SUAF-WDC Chapter Donates Water to Band

SUAF-WDC Chapter members and Human Jukebox alums brought to the chapter's attention the band's need for water during their game day performances.  Due to the band's funding shortage, the band members do not always have drinking water after performances.  The SUAF-WDC Chapter voted to fund water for the band for all home games during the 2016 football season.  Generous donations from chapter members also aided in the small cost to fund this effort.

SUAF-WDC Chapter Participates in 2015 HBCU College Festival Sponsored by Alfred Street Baptist Church
The SUAF-WDC Chapter participated in Alfred Street Baptist Church's 13th Annual HBCU College Festival.  The Festival took place on February 14, 2015 at T. C. Williams High School in Alexandria, VA.  The college fair is a huge event every year with thousands of high schools from the Washington, D.C. metro area in attendance.  All of the SWAC schools were represented and SUAF-WDC chapter was proud to represent Southern University System.  Again this year, a representative  from the Admissions office at Southern University - Baton Rouge, was in attendance to conduct on-site interviews and approve addmissions.  Mr.  Shaquille interviewed several students interested in attending Southern and serveral were conditionally admitted on-site.
 
Several members of the SUAF Washington, D.C. Chapter volunteered at the College Festival.  The volunteers were Vincent Brown, Donna Adams, Carol Jones, Kelly Albert, Gerome Smith, James Albritton, Regina Valentine, and Aaron Venturess.
 
The big hit this year was the announcement that Out-Of-State tuition is waived for qualifying students.  Many students inquired about the waiver and lamented how that would tremendously help their financial situations.
State of Maryland
Southern University Alumni License Tags

FINALLY....the first ever State of Maryland issued Southern University Alumni license tags are being made! We are excited to be included in promoting our illustrious Alma Mater as we drive around the beltway and in our respective communities. The chapter wishes to thank our inaugural 25 applicants for being instrumental in getting these tags made!  It was a process that required great patience as the State of Maryland took a LONG time to approve and send us our sample plate (pictured below).  So we offer a heart felt THANK YOU to our first 25!

If you are reading this and you are a resident of Maryland and you are thinking "I want one!", you can obtain replacement SU Alumni tags for your vehicle as well.  Click here for more information on how to get your new license plates.

We are excited to have our new official State of Maryland Southern University Alumni tags! Get yours today!
