On October 6, 1873, classes began at an institution known as the Cherokee Baptist Female College, the forerunner of today’s Shorter University. To commemorate the year of our origin, Shorter is introducing The 1873 Club to encourage alumni financial support for the institution. The 1873 Club comprises a variety of giving levels to allow alumni to engage in supporting the University at whatever your stage in life and career. Please use the form below to find the best level that matches your giving ability and give today.
