Calling all Trojans.
The Troy University Alumni Association has launched a “Membership in May” campaign to connect more alumni and offer opportunities for them to be engaged at the university.
“In 2012, Troy University celebrated 125 years of service to students in Alabama, the United States and around the world, and we look forward with anticipation to reaching even greater heights this year,” said Faith Ward, director of Troy University’s Alumni Affairs. “This is the perfect time for our alumni to celebrate our treasured past while looking forward to a bright future.”
Association membership entitles alumni to benefits such as admission to all alumni tailgating events, a free subscription to the Troy University alumni magazine, opportunities to save on purchases through the Saving Connection and discounted automobile, home and renters’ insurance rates through Liberty Mutual.
The cost of an Alumni Association membership is $25 per person annually, or $500 for a lifetime single membership. Couples can get a lifetime membership for $750. Those who join during May will also get a free gift. Payment plans are available, Ward said.
“Alumni dues are a vital source of support for university programs and scholarships for deserving students,” Ward said. “Dues go to fund 28 scholarships, per year.
The Association currently serves alumni through 52 chapters in the United States and two international chapters located in China and Russia, Ward said.
The Alumni Association is also having Spirit Night at Chick-fil-A on May 14.
“Whether you go through the drive through or you dine in, you are able to say that you are with the Troy Alumni Association and you want a portion of the cost of your meal to go toward the Association,” Ward said. “You don’t have to pay anything extra and it will help raise money for scholarships.”
