What is your favorite memory from JSU? : My favorite memory at JSU was Friday nights on the Plaza watching the Sonic Boom and Greeks.

What do you enjoy most about being a member of Memphis Alumni Chapter? I enjoy most the fellowship and opportunity to network with and support other alums in my community. 

Favorite rival game to attend:? My favorite game to attend is The Southern Heritage Classic.

Anything else you would like to add? 
My advice to freshman is not to overload their academic schedule the first semester. Leave some room for social adjustment and acclimation to new environment. Take an elective that has nothing to do with their intended major, something never done before or something that they’re curious about.
