Association membership is perfect gift for Salukis

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- Give your Saluki the perfect gift this year with a membership in the SIU Alumni Association. Joining is simple, and dues start as low as $15 for a student membership. SIU faculty and staff can make payments even easier through the Association’s Payroll Deduction Program.

Since 1896, the Association has played a vital role in campus events such as student and alumni recognition awards, the extern program, homecoming, and other social events. Membership supports events such as home game tailgates, student scholarships, Southern Alumni magazine and other notable programs. Through membership dues and philanthropic efforts made by alumni, family and friends, the Association administered more than $72,000 in scholarships in the 2010-11 academic year.

A gift membership to the SIU Alumni Association ensures that your Saluki will receive premier access to these outstanding member services as well as their own subscription to Southern Alumni magazine. They will also receive a personalized 12-month SIU calendar, featuring the member’s name in professional photographs of various locations on the Carbondale campus. Give your favorite Saluki something they’ll really appreciate by visiting or by calling 618/453-2408.
