EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) -- Emporia State University is celebrating a record year in fundraising, with more than $9.4 million in gifts and pledges during the fiscal year that ended June 1.

University officials rang a bell near the football stadium Thursday to mark the achievement.

The university is in the midst of a five- to seven-year capital campaign seeking to raise $45 million for scholarships, academic programs and other initiatives. The Emporia State Foundation says more than $13 million has been raised toward that goal.

Emporia State is marking its 150th anniversary this year.
