A Message from the Chair

Good Afternoon Alumni!

Reunion 2022 Weekend and Commencement were phenomenal! After a two-year hiatus, fellowshiping with Fiskites was rejuvenating. Check out the many photos on social media shared by alumni. Thanks to all who contributed to creating a spectacular set of events.

A total of $704,262.00 was presented by reunion classes at the gala!. Funds will help the university in its ongoing efforts to serve its extraordinary students. The fiscal year continues through June 30, so you can still donate here. (See GALA check presentations)

We congratulate the almost two hundred graduates that earned their Fisk degrees on May 2nd. We are extremely proud of them and welcome their involvement with the alumni association and help in recruiting future Fiskites. We also salute those who achieved Golden or Silver Sons & Daughters alumni status and were celebrated during special luncheons.

Your GAAFU board and its committees continuously work to help plan activities and keep you informed. We welcome your involvement as a GAAFU member, member of your local constituent association, volunteer on a committee, or contributor to our newsletter. We also invite you to attend the GAAFU annual meeting that will be held virtually on Saturday, June 18th, 1:00 – 2:30 PM ET.  For more information on GAAFU contact me at gaafu.chair@gmail.com.

Please take the time to review the entirety of our newsletter. “Bulldog Bites”, our GAAFU membership newsletter, has been incorporated into Good Afternoon Alumni (GAA). We strive to bring you information about many of the positive things occurring at the university, the achievements of alumni and reflection pieces about Fisk. In this edition, our “I Am Fisk” and “For the Culture” sections feature photos of reunion and commencement activities that are sure to reinforce your pride in being a Fiskite.
