ESU Alumni Association                                                                                      Hornet Nation

It’s a great day to be a Hornet!  Thank you for visiting the ESU Alumni Association’s homepage. 

Your Alumni Association 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.  We want to help you celebrate your successes and share the successes of your fellow Hornets.   

Wondering about membership?  If you are a former student or graduate of Emporia State University, then 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?  To build relationships that advance Emporia State University. How do we do that?  By connecting with our alumni and friends via meaningful communication and memorable events.  In addition, by serving Emporia State via volunteer opportunities whereby proud Hornets can give back their time and talent when promoting the institution, recruiting Hornets, and hiring fellow Hornets.  Finally, by supporting the University and inspiring our alumni to give and participate in revenue-generating affinity programs. By connecting, serving, and supporting Emporia State University in diverse ways, our efforts will positively impact the University’s vision, mission, and goals. 

Please join us in this pursuit to advance 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. Get involved and show your Hornet pride! We encourage you to contact us with any questions or thoughts.

Go Hornets!
