What does it mean to be a Southernite?
Legacy, a lineage of Southernites that have paved the way for me and the next generation to follow. Pride, It’s an honor to be a graduate of this great institution and part of a network of alumni. I am grateful to Southern University for equipping me with the tools needed to be successful. My heart bleeds blue and gold. Quote: Oh to be a Southern girl!
