Founded in 1889 with a history almost as long as the University that it serves the South Dakota State University Alumni Association, a private non-profit organization, strives to keep SDSU’s 75,000 + alumni connected to their alma mater.  

The Jackrabbits Forever Fund allows alumni and friends an avenue to provide financial support to the SDSU Alumni Association as we provide programs, services, events, and communications to our membership.

Membership in the SDSU Alumni Association is free for all graduates of South Dakota State University and former students.  Because we charge no dues your support of the Jackrabbit Forever Fund is needed and appreciated.  

Annually the Alumni Association hosts over 150 events all across the country touching more then 12,000 Jackrabbits.  Each year the Alumni Association communicates with its membership over 700,000 times through STATE Magazine, the Jackrabbit Insider, the online communities, invitations, and emails.

The Alumni Association is a robust and dedicated organization, fully engaged in the mission of keeping our alumni connected to SDSU.  We are your Alumni Association and we appreciate your support.
