Notable Alumni

The St. Cloud State University notable alumni program is a new program from our Alumni Relations team designed to recognize and spotlight young SCSU alumni that have made notable advancements in their careers. Here are some success stories of various alumni that is used to share with prospective students and their families so they can envision getting to where they want to go through St. Cloud State, just as these alumni did.

In the newly remodeled Admissions Center in the Administrative Services building at St. Cloud State University, the inspiring stories of young alumni enjoying noteworthy success is now on display for prospective students and their families thanks to a gift from Mike Roos ’80 and wife Cindy Goplen. Mike and Cindy’s gift enabled the Alumni Relations team in University Advancement to design and create a dynamic, multimedia interactive display that illuminates the wide breadth of career success enjoyed by SCSU alumni that proudly proclaims “See the Many Places St. Cloud State Can Take You.”
