Alumni directory project kicks off this summer


Sesquicentennial time at Emporia State University is a good reason to update an alumni directory, don’t you think?

That’s exactly what will be happening, starting this summer. “We’re partnering with PCI, a Dallas, Tex.-based publisher of alumni directories, to produce a 150th-anniversary commemorative edition of ESU’s alumni directory,” said Tyler Curtis, alumni relations director.

That process will involve getting in touch with ESU alumni—all 60,000 or so of you—by post cards and phone calls during the summer, encouraging you to update your contact information and offering a chance to purchase the new directory.
