Letter from the Director


Welcome to the Austin Peay State University Alumni & Friends web page.  It is a pleasure to offer you this source of information for alumni happenings and other alumni-related matters.  Here you can check on upcoming alumni events (Homecoming, 50-Year Reunion, Candlelight Ball) and chapter activities, find old friends, learn of exciting travel opportunities and find out how to get involved or make a donation.

It is our goal to encourage and foster lifelong alumni participation, involvement, and commitment. Over the next several months and years it will be our goal to strengthen the bond between the University and our alumni; to create programs which match the interests and needs of the alumni; to maintain and build upon the positive relationships we have with our more seasoned alumni; to increase the participation, involvement, and communication with our younger alumni; and to continue to serve as the primary communications link between the University and it’s alumni. 

Upon graduation from Austin Peay, you automatically become a member of the National Alumni Association.  Every person who attended Austin Peay as a full-time student for at least one term (quarter or semester) qualifies for membership.

The Pace Alumni Center at Emerald Hill is the home of the National Alumni Association and also houses the daily operation of the Alumni Relations Office.  This lovely antebellum mansion is YOUR alumni center, and I encourage you to visit often.

Please stay in touch with us!  It is a constant challenge to keep our alumni records updated and accurate data is vital to our success.  Contact us by telephone, mail, fax or email with news of a new address or telephone number, job change, promotions, marriage, births and deaths.   We would especially appreciate your e-mail addresses.

We welcome you as a part of the APSU Alumni family and we hope to see you back on campus soon! We hope that you will stay connected and involved with this ever-growing institution. Our staff is here to help you in any way!

If you have questions or need more information about Austin Peay or any alumni happenings, have suggestions or new ideas, interested in forming a new alumni chapter, please feel free to contact us.
