ESU Alumni Association                                                                                      Hornet Nation

It’s a great day to be a Hornet!  On behalf of the Alumni Association of Emporia State University, welcome to our homepage.

The Alumni Association of Emporia State University is the official organization for graduates and former students of Emporia State University. The association, formed in 1880, strives to keep all KSN, KSTC, EKSC, and ESU alumni and friends in touch with their alma mater and with each other.

If you are a former student or graduate of Emporia State University, you are already a member of the ESU Alumni Association. There are no annual fees - no membership dues.  As a member, you're invited to take advantage of the programs and services offered by the association, including special travel opportunities, events in cities across the country, and discounts at the Memorial Union Bookstore. You'll also receive two issues of Spotlight, the magazine for the Hornet Nation, each year.

Our purpose as an alumni association is simple: we build relationships and support for Emporia State University.  The process the Alumni Association has created to live our mission is to connect with our alumni and friends via communication and events, to serve Emporia State by coordinating opportunities for volunteers to give back their time and talent by promoting the institution, recruiting Hornets, and hiring fellow Hornets, and to support the University by inspiring alumni to give and participate in revenue-generating affinity programs.  By connecting, serving, and supporting Emporia State University, our efforts will positively impact the University’s vision, mission, and goals.

Please join us in this pursuit to build relationships and support for Emporia State University.  Connect with Emporia State; serve your alma mater by recruiting Hornets, hiring Hornets, and advocating for public higher education; and support the University through giving and affinity partnership participation.  You can make an impact, and together we will change lives.  

Once again, welcome to the official website of the ESU Alumni Association. I encourage you to contact us with any questions or thoughts.  Go Hornets!

Yours for ESU 

K. Tyler Curtis, ’01 & ‘04
