Honorary Jags

Jaguar Family Connection

Connect, Learn, Belong

Dear Families,

On behalf of the University of South Alabama USA One Stop, welcome to the Jaguar Family! You have played an important part in your students’ achievements. But your importance to their journey doesn’t end simply because college begins.  So, as your student stands poised to enter the Jaguar Jungle, we as administrators, faculty, staff, and alumni, stand ready to welcome you, our Honorary Jaguars.

The transition to college represents a significant step toward adulthood for our students. This new experience is paved with excitement, adventure, and possibilities.  There is a lot to learn, for both students and families, and we are here to support you. The USA One Stop is staffed with a team of professional and student ambassadors, who are cross trained across campus and dedicated to assisting you from enrollment to graduation. 

This site is intended to provide you with information and resources to help you stay connected, engaged and involved.  Join our USA One Stop Jaguar Family Connection, our family communications portal, and stay connected through newsletters, emails, and quarterly programming. We also encourage you, and your student, to follow the social media accounts of the USA One Stop. We use these platforms as a way to share more immediate information, resources, and important deadlines throughout the year. 

We know this is an exciting time for both you and your student. We share in this excitement and look forward to getting to know you!

Go Jags!
