South Magazine

Jo Bonner and wife

SOUTH Magazine is for you—our alumni. It’s a tangible way for you to connect with the University from wherever you live. The biannual publication features stories about USA alumni from around the world who are making a difference in their communities through their careers and passions. SOUTH also covers stories about our faculty who are leaders in their fields and researchers who are making ground-breaking discoveries. SOUTH keeps you up-to-date with the latest accomplishments in Jags athletics and gives you the opportunity to engage in alumni activities and ways to support the University.

We hope you enjoy reading SOUTH as much as we enjoy bringing it to you. If you are a USA graduate and have not been receiving your copy of SOUTH, please contact the National Alumni Association at or (251) 460-7084.

Thank you, and Go Jags!
