2013 Society of 1895 Luncheon - April 4
In 1895, 30 men and women comprised the first class of Fairmount College in Wichita, Kan. They, along with the faculty and founders of this college, served as the firm foundation from which the University of Wichita emerged, and now, Wichita State University.
The Society of 1895 draws its name from this proud legacy and honors those alumni and friends who have included a gift to Wichita State in their estate plans through a designation in their will, trust, life insurance, retirement plan or gift annuity. In doing so, these supporters express their confidence in the future of WSU, insure that their gift is used according to their wishes and secure their own legacy in the history of the university.
New members for 2013 and current members were honored at a ceremony and luncheon Thursday, April 4, 2013, at the Marcus Welcome Center on the WSU campus.
