Greetings Viking Family! As interim president of the ECSU National Alumni Association’s Atlanta Metro Alumni Chapter, and on behalf of our membership, I hope that you find our website informative and user-friendly.  As we strive to be a model representative of the university locally, the process will require the time, talent, and treasure of all in order to sustain.  I truly believe we can make our chapter a beacon and progressive example of what can be accomplished when we come together as one body to support our beloved alma mater. We are excited to welcome all graduates and friends of the university as members of the Association and your tax-deductible annual gift will help support the activities of our local chapter. The new officers and I look forward to meeting each of you at our chapter meetings and engagement activities.

The Atlanta Metro Alumni Chapter (AMAC), an affiliate of the Elizabeth City State University National Alumni Association, Inc. (NAA), was established in 1978 with the support of 26 local alumni members. Vivian Perrimon (’49), the 1st official chapter president and Sports Hall of Famer Bobby Riley (’66), along with his wife Sylvia (VSU), were early catalysts and organizers that helped lead the group to establish a strong visible ECSU presence amongst other alumni chapters for historical black colleges and universities (HBCUs) locally. Over the years, AMAC has engaged in numerous student recruitment, alumni engagement, fundraising and host activities to support NAA and the university.  As a newly revised chapter, we are committed to continuing the legacy started by the original 26 while also leaving a mark for current students in efforts to pass the Viking torch as they become proud ECSU alumnus and active members.
