Student Gift Officers

What is a Student Gift Officer (SGO)?

Student Gift Officers reach out to alumni, friends, and parents year around, five days a week to build relationships and raise funds for the university. SGOs are provided thorough training, flexible scheduling, and competitive pay in addition to a rewarding opportunity to serve their eventual alma-mater and make K-State even better.
