club for Chicago State University dedicated to promoting a positive image of the university
to alumni, the student body and community. S.T.A.T.U.S. serves as a liaison between
the Office of Alumni Affairs, CTC/CSU Alumni Association and the university by increasing
school spirit, building lasting relationships with students and alumni while strengthening
their lifelong loyalty to CSU, and producing strong student leaders who will support
the university in its continued tradition of academic excellence.
Members come from a variety of backgrounds, study areas, cultures and ethnicities,
and a mix of gender and ages. They have been identified as leaders in the classroom
and on campus. S.T.A.T.U.S. members work closely with the Office of Alumni Affairs
and CTC/CSU Alumni Association and actively participate in various university events
acting as representatives of CSU. Typically events members are called to attend include

Celebration and the Friends of CSU Award Gala. The organization also sponsors its
own events and seeks volunteer opportunities in the community throughout the year.
