Senior days

You're Invited!

Register now

Please Note: Event registration will close 72 business hours before the event. K-State reserves the right to close registration early if an event fills to capacity prior to the 72 business hour deadline. In the event of inclement weather, we encourage you to check the K-State website for event updates. Events will be cancelled if K-State is closed. Otherwise, we will email you if an event is cancelled. We ask that you use best judgment when choosing to travel to campus in inclement weather. If an event is cancelled, K-State will make an effort to reschedule the event to a later date and your registration may be transferred. 

You're invited to a Senior Day at K-State! Spend a day exploring K-State's campus.

Your day will include opportunities to discuss your academic interests with a K-State faculty member and hear the latest information about financial aid, fraternities, sororities, residence halls and much more! Take a tour of campus, and enjoy lunch in the K-State Student Union. Our lunch program includes a student panel and prizes, and one lucky student will receive $250 toward textbooks for his or her first semester at K-State.

Cost

$20 per student and $15 for each parent, family member, or guest, which covers program materials, parking, and lunch.

Choose a date

Regions are assigned to fall senior days to allow  students to attend with other students from their region. However, all senior days are open to all prospective students and parents, should another date work better. You many choose a senior day from the following six options: 

  • Northeast Kansas Senior Day: Monday, October 6, 2014 (registration is closed)
  • Johnson County Senior Day: Friday, October 10, 2014 (registration is closed)
  • South Central Kansas Senior Day: Monday, October 13, 2014
  • Western and Central Kansas Senior Day: Monday, October 20, 2014
  • Out of State Senior Day: Monday, November 3, 2014
  • Southeast Kansas Senior Day: Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Attend whichever Senior Day is convenient for you and your family. Once online registration closes for a specific Senior Day, you may choose to attend on another day or call 1-800-432-8270 (toll free) to see if space is still available. If none of the Senior Days fits your schedule, we can arrange for a personal visit to K-State. Register early as dates fill up quickly.
