In 1895, 30 men and women comprised the first class of Fairmount College in Wichita. They, along with the faculty and founders, served as the 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 alumni and friends who have included a gift to Wichita State in their estate plans. The university would not be where it is today without this meaningful support. As a Society of 1895 member, you are invited to a special luncheon held in your honor so you can hear how your legacy gift will continue to help advance Wichita State University.
