On Friday, March 1, Staters for State, the student alumni organization, will honor all SDSU alumni who are currently employed at SDSU.

“All employees will receive a pin along with a yellow and blue ribbon to wear on that day,” said Jeff Nolz, with Staters for State.

There will also be a reception from 3 to 5 p.m. at Tompkins Alumni Center and door prizes will also be given away.

“This event is allows us to host an event with the people that we are in contact with every day,” Nolz said.

Nolz also said that several department and deans are graduates of SDSU.

He also added that when the planning first began, he hoped for at least 30 people. So far, about 75 are expected for the reception.

Staters for State sponsors such events as Stately Beginning, Senior Appreciation Day, Oozeball, Family of the Year and the Campanile Climb in the fall.

“Staters for State allows connections between students, alumni, faculty and administration officials,” said Nolz.

Staters for State also helps out with larger events at Tompkins Alumni Center and has also done service projects during the holidays and Hobo Days.

“Staters for State is a very active organization with a great future,” Nolz said.
