Once upon a time, there was a need by college students that was not being met from traditional universities. It was a very sad time for individuals who couldn’t quite fit the mold of a standard college student. Something needed to change, but they weren’t sure how it was going to happen.
Suddenly (and ironically), a magical fairy godmother appeared, and created a college that dreams were made of. Her name was Evelyn Keiser and that college is what we now know as Keiser University. Listening to the needs of the non-traditional students, she and Dr. Arthur Keiser, created this university with a student first philosophy. To better accommodate this idea, she implemented a one class at a time course structure, small class sizes, and only employed the most caring and reputable professors available.
The students of KU were so grateful to their fairy godmother, Evelyn Keiser. When they asked her why she would do such a noble deed, she replied that she knew what it felt like to want to pursue an education but the odds weren’t in her favor. You see, at the time Evelyn Keiser went to college, it was not a common place for women. In fact, her choice in education was actually a male dominated field. Through her own experience, she decided to create a university that would care for their students and have equal opportunities for all who attend. She wanted everyone to have the chance to live happily ever after.
I wrote this fairy tale in honor of Ms. Evelyn Keiser, co-founder of our great university. On behalf of the KU student body I would like to congratulate her on being inducted into the Florida Woman’s Hall of Fame. An achievement brought on by her courageous decision to start a college that broke the mold. It is because of her decision that we have this amazing experience as KU college students; an experience which will remain with us for the rest of our lives. Thank you for making all of our dreams come true. ♥
