Alumni Affairs

Thank you for visiting the Francis Marion Alumni Association website. As you click through the various pages, you will see how The Association has become a vibrant community of members who serve on boards, volunteer at regional chapter meetings, act as greeters for both campus and off-campus alumni awards’ events, and serve as ambassadors of The University throughout their various communities and professions. We have designed this website with our alumni in mind.

Creating a personal login has insured you will be able to access your personal profile, enjoy utilizing the Career Development page with career and resume tips, registering for alumni events, and giving online. You may even enjoy creating your own Affinity pages that will give other grads in your class a chance to communicate with one another on a more regular basis, maybe even plan a reunion of your class or organization in which you were a member.

If you have suggestions for the site and/or questions, please call me at the Office of Alumni Affairs at 843.661.1228 or email me at I will look forward to hearing about your experience with our new robust site.
