Sesquicentennial Gala

Celebrating the last 150 years – and forging ahead toward the future – we are thrilled to announce the “Sesquicentennial Gala – Celebrating 150 Years of Excellence,” to be held in person at the Jackson Convention Complex on Saturday, October 1, 2022, in Jackson, Mississippi. We have planned an evening to remember with friends and supporters, awards and recognitions, spectacular entertainment, and more.

For over 150 years, Alcorn State University has been the beacon of opportunity that has produced legendary graduates who have excelled in education, medicine, athletics, politics, agriculture, academia, entrepreneurs, among others. The contributions of our alumni, friends, corporate, governmental, and other supporters have been a core component to the achievement of such grand success.
