The Virginia State University Alumni Association is one of Virginia State University's greatest supporters. Organized in 1889 and incorporated in 1949, the Association has had a long and proud history of connecting alumni back to Virginia State University and to each other and sharing its influence and resources in support of the University's mission.
The VSUAA Atlanta Chapter was founded in the Spring of 2010 so that Trojan Alumni from the area could reunite and connect in the spirit of supporting our beloved Virginia State University. We are proud to be Trojan Alumni, and our mission is to support, educate, and deliver on the VSU promise to Dream, Explore, & Succeed!
