Share Your Story

Whether you attended as a student (or are currently a student), have a child that attended, or are just a huge fan of our School, you have a unique story to tell. And we want to hear it!

Here are some ideas to help you get going:

  • Why did you choose to attend the KU School of Public Affairs & Administration?
  • What is your favorite memory of School? (It could be a professor you had, a friend you made, a class you took, a tree you studied under, etc.)
  • Do you have any special traditions that you've maintained?
  • How has the School affected your life (professionally or personally)?
  • What words of advice do you have for current students?
  • How did the School prepare you for a life of public service?

There are no restrictions as to length; provide as much as as little detail as you like.

If you have a picture or two that would go well with this story, please email Alecia Gray at agray@ku.edu.
