President’s MessageOn behalf of the great Bethune-Cookman University (B-CU) family of faculty/staff, students, alumni, and friends welcome to the website of the ATLanta chapter of the National Alumni Association!
Mary McLeod Bethune left a legacy of generosity and service to our nation and abroad. The B-CU’s motto “Enter to Learn; Depart to Serve” are words of wisdom that are as appropriate today as any time in our history.
We are excited to have you visit us and hope that the information you seek is found here. Our focus is simple: To support our great institution in service, student recruitment, and through financial contribution. Our alumni live all across metro-Atlanta and are working in all levels of government including the federal, state, and local municipalities. B-CU alumni are also employed in private sector organizations small and large. Many are entrepreneurs providing products and services to our communities.
I am looking forward to working with you and increasing the chapter’s membership. I ask each alumnus to reflect on their own journey. Where would you be without Bethune-Cookman University?Read More
