Tower Society and Young Alumni
Become a member of the Tower Society!
Southwestern’s Tower Society recognizes top alumni donors who have graduated in the past ten years (up to the current fiscal year’s 10th reunion class). The Tower Society is named in recognition of the annual tradition where graduating seniors sign the stone walls of the Cullen Tower and honors donors who make annual gifts to support the university. Members of the senior class join the Tower Society for the first time by participating in this historic tradition.
