This milestone year is a time to celebrate the education, the opportunities, the enduring friendships and the lifelong passions that are born of a Tougaloo experience. Whether you are a member of our Board of Trustees, administration, faculty, staff, student body, alumni or friend, you represent a chapter in Tougaloo College’s history.
