Created in 1973, the SMSU Alumni Association is a non-dues paying organization of which all Southwest graduates are members. The SMSU Alumni Association Board of Directors meets three times per year and sponsors numerous programs, events, and services for all alumni.

Working with the Alumni Association, and here to serve all Southwest alumni, is the Office of Alumni Relations. Our office is located in Founders Hall (formerly Administrative Services). Southwest Minnesota State University has over 20,000 alumni worldwide. We encourage you to use this web site, as well as other resources, to get involved in all areas of University life.
