Your School's Almuni Base?
I know the universities in C-USA have a large variation in the size of their student bodies (Rice +6K to FIU +52K) and age (Marshall, 180 years old, to UAB & UTSA, 48 years old), but it isn't as easy to determine how many alums our universities can claim. Below, I have tried to compile a list of alums per university. I was unable to find information on 5 of our C-USA universities. Some numbers I found were more than a decade old. And some of the numbers don't distinguish between living alumni or total alumni since the founding of the university. It is quite sketchy. If any of you have better alumni numbers for your university, please share them in this thread, along with a link to the source, so I can compile a more complete list. Just based on the initial numbers, I believe C-USA could develop a respectable following and someday a respectable media deal. I appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you.

I also like how you broke down the number of alums in the DFW area. Between WKU and MT, there's probably at least 100k C-USA in metro Nashville, likely much higher no doubt.

I like how we're 8th biggest alumni base on this (incomplete) list, even ranking ahead of one school with (outdated) numbers!

(I know we'll be 14th when all the returns are in... but still...)

Kinda like how if we can just sneak past UTEP & FIU in football to start out we'll be IN FIRST PLACE

Charlotte is over 100,000 now I believe. They were saying 80,000 when I was in school and that was a little over 10 years ago.

Online?? On campus international students generally return home after studying.

By the way, y'all count alums the same as we do: "With over 124,000 alumni across all 50 states and 67 countries, Monarch pride is global." https://www.odu.edu/alumni

RE: Your School's Almuni Base?
One of our former coaches was quoted saying that all of Rice's living alumni would not fill one end zone of Rice Stadium.

Expanding class size, time, and a reduction of our stadium capacity from about 74K to 47K has finally brought us to,the point where if we put every living alumnus in the stadium, it might fill it.

It wasn't meant to be a jab. I meant in general
