Our History

 

 

There is evidence that the organization of alumni clubs started as early as 1923 when a group organized in what was then known as high school alumni clubs. After careful consideration, the Georgia State clubs increased and thus became the Georgia State Association. Understanding the need to develop these clubs into a more organized representative group, which would serve the college and the administration, the Alumni Association was organized. The membership of the association was composed of graduates from the High School, Normal and College Departments.
