Our Signature Event ~ Annual Scholarship Gala

To All Alumni and Friends:


The JSU Houston Area Alumni Chapter Executive Board has met and decided to CANCEL the Chapter's 2020 "Thee Harlem Renaissance" gala.

 The collegiate experience at JSU helped to shape and define us into the people we are and will yet become. But the love of JSU did not cease when we left Lynch Street. Membership in HAAC offers alums the opportunity to ENGAGE with those who share similar experiences and also share a genuine love for JSU!

 Most importantly, HAAC membership affords alums the opportunity to collectively IMPACT the lives of others. Whether it is through financial giving, selfless volunteering at events or thoughtfully serving on HAAC committees, Houston area alums are the face of the university here, and we are making positive contributions to the continuation of our beloved alma mater.
