Where Television Host Barbara Walters left off with her Fascinating People specials, we picked up with our own "Fascinating Alumni" project. Originally conceived as part of CSU's 50th anniversary celebration, the Alumni Association undertook an effort to recognize 50 fascinating alumni. "It soon became apparent that 50 was just the beginning," said Brian Breittholz assistant vice president for alumni relations. "Hundreds of nominations poured in and we quickly learned we were blessed with a richness of accomplished and fascinating alumni among our ranks."

The Cleveland State University Alumni Association has published a book highlighting fascinating alumni -- graduates with interesting careers or unique achievements who exemplify how a CSU education impacts lives and how CSU alumni impact the world.

“Fascinating Alumni highlights just a few of CSU’s 120,000-plus graduates across the globe,” notes Brian Breittholz, assistant vice president for alumni relations and executive director of the CSU Alumni Association.

“Some graduated in recent years; some many years ago. Some are still living; others have passed on. But they all share common traits. They are hard-working men and women who were determined to earn a college degree – even when the odds were against them. They showed grit and resolve, overcoming obstacles to achieve their educational goal, just as so many CSU students do today.”  

The fascinating alumni project began as part of CSU’s 50th anniversary celebration, with the Alumni Association seeking to recognize 50 graduates. Nominations were sought from a variety of sources, hundreds were received, and soon it was apparent there were more than 50 fascinating stories to tell.
