FAYETTEVILLE — On May 13, Ashley Alderman of East Bend graduated from Fayetteville State University with a B.S. in psychology online at the 150th spring commencement ceremony.
FSU Chancellor James A. Anderson presided over the ceremony and addressed the graduates as the keynote speaker. His address focused on “Voices of FSU Past and Present” with reflections from both alumni and current students, including one of the oldest living alumnae, one of the youngest graduates, university founders, an alumni donor and others.
The Office of Alumni Affairs and the National Alumni Association connects graduates, new and old, through social and professional networking as well as the White and Blue Alumni Newsletter and FS&U Magazine. As a graduate, Alderman became a part of this growing alumni community.
