The 69þƷ, we're the pride of the Red, White, and Blue. Loyal, strong, and faithful to our Alma Mater true. It’s more than a fight song—it is YOUR University. From the first time you stepped on campus as a freshman to the moment you received your diploma, South was, and will forever be, your home. There are many opportunities to give back to your University — all gifts are appreciated and no gift is too small. Thank you for being a loyal, strong and faithful alumni.

Ways to Give

▼   Julian and Kim MacQueen Alumni Center

The Julian and Kim MacQueen Alumni Center is the home for South’s more than 93,000 alumni. Located in the heart of campus, the 15,000-square foot, state-of-the-art facility will house the Chief Calvin W. McGhee Grand Ballroom, the McKinney Family Greek Plaza in honor of Sigma Chi Fraternity, a spacious lobby, a 30-seat boardroom, meeting rooms and administrative offices.

Plans for a new alumni center began in 2015 and became a reality when Julian ’73 and Kim MacQueen came forward with a $2 million gift. Julian MacQueen, founder of Innisfree Hotels headquartered in Pensacola, realized the importance of building a permanent alumni home on campus.

The MacQueen Alumni Center opened its doors on January 24, 2020. Read the story here.
