Giving Back is our Tradition
We are a proud community of 100,000 alumni celebrating the success of the next generation.
In 1890, the first class of students completed their course program from the university and banded together to form the Alumni Association. Today, we are proud to continue the tradition of giving back as alumni of a dynamic educational institution. Being an alumni association member, along with generous donations, you will help provide current students with more high-quality learning experiences.
We are a strong community of alumni, from recent graduates to former graduates of East Texas Normal College, East Texas State Normal College, East Texas State Teachers College, East Texas State College and East Texas State University who believe greatness is something bigger than ourselves.
Working together with courage, strength and fierce commitment, our association exists to:
- Promote greatness in the cause of higher education
- Advance the university by assisting in alumni resource development and gifts
- Strengthen and sustain ties of affection and esteem formed during college days
- Champion the best interests of A&M-Commerce and its alumni
