The Tuskegee University National Athletics Association (TUNAA) is undertaking a project to assist the athletic department with purchasing a John Deere XUV 825i, commonly known as a "Gator," and needs financial support from all alumni and friends of Tuskegee University.
The Gator will be used by the equipment manager in the performance of his duties in multiple sports. Click on the link below for more information.
Each year the Tuskegee National Alumni Association (TNAA) sponsors the annual Adopt-a-Dorm Program, which usually begins the week after the July 4th Holiday. This program has helped maintain the infrastructure of many university dormitories.
Edward Grimm, a 1969 Tuskegee graduate, who usually runs the program, along with alumni volunteers give countless hours to restoring the beauty and functionality to dormitories on their beloved campus. While working, these volunteers stay in the dorms that they help renovate, and they eat in the cafeteria.
The Adopt-a-Dorm Program has saved the university countless dollars in maintenance costs since the program began in 1990 and the program was officially adopted by TNAA in 1992.
