Welcome to Roll Tide Chicago!
Our chapter is open to membership for all alumni, friends, and fans of the University of Alabama.
We are the only official Alumni Chapter registered through the National Alumni Association for the Chicagoland area. You don’t have to be an alumnus of the University to join – you just have to love the Crimson Tide!
Our Chapter is actively involved in recruiting high school students to attend the University. In doing so, our Chicagoland Chapter awards an annual scholarship through an endowment at the National Alumni Association to a deserving freshman entering the University. Your continued Membership contributes to our scholarship fund and allows us
to offer member events throughout the year.
We’d love to have your support as a Chicagoland Alabama Alumni Chapter Member. Remember, you don’t have to be an alumnus of The University to join, you just have to love the Crimson Tide!
In joining our local chapter you will help us reach our fundraising goals and expand our local network.
We would also like to know if you are interested in becoming involved in the activities of this chapter,
as well your interest in volunteering your time to chapter planning activities and leadership. Please review the attached membership form and become involved at any level.

Your support and contributions throughout the year enables the Alumni Chapter to keep growing our scholarships to a well deserving young mind from Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
One of our primary goals as a local Alumni Chapter is to raise funds for our Chicagoland Chapter Endowed scholarship at the University. We work directly with the National Alumni Association to host university-related events, recruit local students to attend the University, and most importantly, raise funds for our chapter’s endowed scholarship.
A big Roll Tide and Hello to all our Roll Tide Chicago Family!
We are so excited for the upcoming Alabama Season Opener in just a few short days! I am sure everyone has been hoping and praying we would get a 2020 Football Season! Thankfully, not even Covid could stop the Tide! However, it does sadly effect attending games and your favorite Roll Tide Chicago watch parties.
1st, we would like to personally apologize to all our members for our lack of communication in regards to this season's watch parties. With all the uncertainty surrounding the season, as well as social distancing guidelines for restaurants and bars, we did not have concrete information till late this week.
Please know that as the season progresses there may be changes and we will of course be keeping our members updated immediately with all information surrounding our watch parties and the Tide.
With that being said, this season we had to make the difficult decision to only host one watch party location, at least for the start of the season. For right now, or at least for the beginning of this season, Houndstooth Saloon will be our only official watch party. Due to safety and social distancing guidelines as well as uncertainty of attendance, we had to make the tough call to host only 1 watch party location. Of course, this is all fluid, and we hope as the season progresses we can start to host watch parties at our other 2 amazing watch locations.
We are very disappointed that we are letting down many of our loyal RTC members who regularly attend our watch parties in the suburbs. I know how much it means to watch the Tide with your fellow RTC family, and for that I want to personally apologize. I promise though, once we are able to safely open our other watch locations we will do so immediately.
In regards to our watch party at the Houndstooth Saloon, I have posted a picture below, but will also be following-up with an additional FB post with all the guidelines and regulations for our watch party. As for now, it will be by reservation only, so please make sure if you plan to attend a game this season you throughly read the guidelines and rules.
Thank you for your loyalty and understanding during these uncertain times. We cannot thank our Roll Tide Chicago family enough for all you have done for us over the years. Your commitment to us and the Tide is something we do not take lightly and we hope you will continue to support us and our main purpose of raising money for our Scholarship Fund. We will continue to sell our memberships, which include our yearly T-Shirts, online. We will be releasing our new 2020 T-shirts very soon. If you would like more information please visit Rolltidechicago.com or email us at email@example.com.
Thank you again for all your love and support and we look forward to seeing many of you in the coming weeks at the Houndstooth!
