Alumni Association About

The official organization for Emporia State graduates and former students

Connecting + Advancing Hornets

Once a Hornet, always a Hornet! Formed in 1880, the ESU Alumni Association's purpose is to connect, serve and support ESU.

We are here to connect you with alumni, friends, services and benefits. If you would like to give back to your alma mater, there are many ways to serve ESU through volunteer opportunities to promote ESU, recruit new students and hire fellow Hornets. You can also support ESU and give to fundraising initiatives that will positively impact the success of ESU and our students.

It's a great day to be a Hornet!
