Dear Lion family and friends,


During this unprecedented time of uncertainty and anxiety associated with the Covid-19 pandemic we pause to offer our warmest regards to you and your loved ones. We are all uniquely challenged with this ever-changing state of affairs and have had to adjust to a new set of norms.


It is our desire to communicate with you in a meaningful manner and hope that you will share your thoughts in this brief survey.


We extend our best wishes and prayers to you! Stay safe and healthy, Lions!


Peace and blessings,

Greetings Alumni and Friends


Our rich history goes back more than 130 years and our legacy continues to grow as we leave our mark in our community and the world. As Lion alumni, we are all connected and are stitched from the same cloth. We’ve all walked the same paths, sat in the same classrooms, and cheered our Lions to victory, wearing our blue and gold with pride. Here you will find everything there is to help you stay connected to the place that will always be your home. Whether you are a graduate of Texas A&M University-Commerce or East Texas State, you are and will always be a Lion for Life.
