The KSU Alumni Fellows Program is sponsored by the Deans' Council, the President's Office and the Alumni Association. It recognizes alumni who have distinguished themselves in their careers. Since 1983 the program has brought successful alumni back to campus to meet with students and faculty to share their expertise in the classroom and at informal settings. Fellows are chosen to return as Distinguished guests and as mentors, friends and counselors. They are honored in recognition of the ultimate measure of a university - not curricula, facilities or programs, but the quality of its alumni.

We are very proud to have Dr. Lawrence Bramlage as our 12th Alumni Fellow. There will be several activities planned during Dr. Bramlage's visit. Dr. Bramlage will be asked to speak during this time, you are invited to attend. Stay in touch with us or continue to check our web site for further details closer to the time of the event.
