Don’t just take it from us, let our alumni do the talking!

“When I look at my life, I go back to Keystone as really providing the nuts and bolts for all the things that would come afterward. I received a great education, and I don’t just mean great business education, but an education in how to live life.”

Kirby Hickey ’65

“Keystone was the perfect place for me. The professors were like mentors, helping students to develop their talents. They spoke to you and not at you. When I left Keystone, I was really ready to meet challenges that I could not have faced before.”

Jeff Straughn ’87

“Being involved in a variety of activities at Keystone really helped me grow as a person and gain the confidence I needed. I’ve gained a better perspective on who I am and what I want to do with my life. Keystone has really helped me in many ways.”

Tara Gwilliam ’12

"The faculty at Keystone serve as mentors and friends. They are here for you when you need them, both inside and outside the classroom."
