Meridian Chapter


I would like to welcome any and all University of Alabama Alumni, friends and fans to join our local UA Alumni Chapter. We like to get together several times a year to cheer on the Tide in various sports, travel and tailgate together on the Quad at home football games and encourage area students to consider attending the University with the help of local scholarships.


We welcome all alums, fans and friends to join our chapter! The cost is $25.00/single and $40.00/couple. The dues collected helps to defray the cost of meetings, pay for postage, and add to our endowed scholarship.

To join, please send the following information, along with your payment to the Meridian/East Mississippi Chapter Treasurer, Gerry Mitchell.
