Ways to Give

Julian and Kim MacQueen Alumni Center

The Julian and Kim MacQueen Alumni Center will serve as the permanent home for South’s more than 80,000 alumni. Located in the heart of campus, the 15,000-square foot, state-of-the-art facility will house the Chief Calvin W. McGhee Grand Ballroom, the McKinney Family Greek Plaza in honor of Sigma Chi Fraternity, a spacious lobby, a 30-seat boardroom, meeting rooms and administrative offices.

Plans for a new alumni center began in 2015 and became a reality when Julian ’73 and Kim MacQueen came forward with a $2 million gift. Julian MacQueen, founder of Innisfree Hotels headquartered in Pensacola, realized the importance of building a permanent alumni home on campus.

The NAA broke ground on the Center on October 12, 2018. Construction is projected to be completed by 2020. Read the story here.
