“The Southerners” originated in 1978, are a 16-member group of USA students who work closely with the National Alumni Association, President’s Office and other University and community groups to fulfill vital roles in every aspect of University relations. Funded and directed by the Office of Alumni Relations and National Alumni Association, “The Southerners” serve as the official ambassadors for the University of South Alabama throughout the country.
Members are chosen on the basis of an essay-type application, interviews, academics, and extracurricular achievements. Applications are available in the spring. For more information, contact Southerner Advisor Jessica Callahan, ( 251) 460-7084 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The Southerners” are best known for their Annual Oozeball Tournament – volleyball played in 8 inches of mud. Over 500 students, faculty, staff and alumni participate in the event held in the spring.
