The Delta State University National Alumni Association recently spoke to the senior sociology class taught by Dr. Leslie E. Green-Pimentel. This course provides a venue for integrating material learned in the social sciences program, to establish a basis for instituting assessment-based education in the Division of Social Sciences and History at Delta State University, and to serve as a transition between life in the university and life after college.

Director of Alumni Affairs Jeffrey Farris spoke to the students about the experience they will have after graduation and gave them a tour of the Hugh Ellis Walker Alumni & Foundation House. He encouraged the group to stay connected to their alma mater and to come back to campus often.

Students in Green-Pimentel’s Integrative Seminar in the Social Sciences visit the Alumni Association each semester and have been doing so for the past seven years. The students also received a copy of the latest edition of the Delta State alumni magazine and an alumni decal for their vehicle.
