Since the time of its charter in 1961, the Nicholls State University Alumni Federation has sought to foster, protect, and promote our institution’s welfare and strengthen the ties between the university and our alumni. By continuing to keep in touch with our alumni, we feel that we can have a stronger and more viable organization that will help to promote our goals. The Alumni network is over 57,000 strong!
Each year, the Alumni Federation sponsors a tailgate at least one away football game and at all of the home football games. The Homecoming Social, the Alumni Colonel Golf Classic, Graduate Expo and the Alumni Crawfish Boil are also hosted by the Federation.

“I don’t think there was a person that he did not capture. It was his personality that he was a very giving person. He had a great quality of a listener. His love for Nicholls and the community was clear.”
