We host an annual African-American Alumni Reunion in conjunction with Homecoming each year. The 2016 reunion featured a welcome mixer, campus tours, alumni tailgating, and a farewell brunch. With over 75 participants, we posted our fourth consecutive year of raising over $500 for the Earl Moseley, Jr. Memorial Scholarship. Learn more about our annual Homecoming Reunion.

We actively fundraise for the Earl Moseley, Jr. Memorial Scholarship in efforts to make it a permanent endowed scholarship fund at Texas State University.  In 2016, the scholarship hit the $25,000 goal to reach endowment status so that funds are protected in perpetuity.  The Earl Moseley Memorial Scholarship is named in memory of Earl Lee Moseley, Jr., a Southwestern University graduate, who arrived at Texas State (then Southwest Texas State) in 1985. While at Texas State, Earl worked as a Hall Director, Assistant Director for Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA), Development Officer for University Advancement and at the time of his death Coordinator of Campus Activities.  In addition, he was a member and advisor to Pi Kappa Alpha, advisor to the Student Organization Council (SOC), Student Association for Campus Activities (SACA) and FOCUSED.  He was a dedicated member of the Coalition of Black Faculty and Staff, Staff Council, and Homecoming Steering Committee, among other roles at Texas State.  During his tenure, he mentored a great number of students and was instrumental in their development into successful leaders.  Donate to the Earl Moseley, Jr. Memorial Scholarship now.


We are currently developing a mentoring program for current students to connect with alumni.  Stay tuned for more updates or contact Chapter Leadership to get involved.
