24 Years and Counting

The Black Alumni Society, Kennesaw State University's first affinity group, was chartered in 2000. The group aims to inform, involve and serve alumni as it promotes Kennesaw State University. With events throughout the year in addition to their annual anniversary celebration, there are a variety of opportunities to get and stay connected with other members of the Black Alumni Society.
