Advance Communication about the University
Leadership skills are valuable tools in several areas of our lives from work to community service to home. The alumni chapter is always in need of skilled officers to guide the organization as well as committee chairmen to lead important projects. The skills you build with us can last a lifetime.
The alumni association provides a valuable opportunity to serve the university and our community by raising money for scholarships and other university projects, recruiting quality students, influencing legislation that will support the University, and just saying and doing things that promote a positive image of FAMU.
Success often is not determined by what you know, but by who you know. Rattlers are diverse, powerful, and influential people. By attending alumni functions you have the opportunity to interact with fellow Rattlers who can help you find a job, develop your career, or generate business opportunities for your current job. Any given gathering you might meet a Rattler who can help you buy a house, invest your money, or find a spouse.
Alumni members are true friends. We are family. We break bread together, laugh together, and share personal stories of triumph and loss. We support each other in times of need and give good counsel in times of uncertainty.
