DiscoverU Conference


Presented by Kansas State University and Blue Key Senior Honorary

DiscoverU: An inside look at college life and what it takes to get there.

K-State Blue Key Senior Honorary is hosting 150 sophomore and junior high school students in the AVID program to participate in a one-of-a-kind self-development and college preparation conference.

Students will not only have a chance to participate in traditional elements of a college visit, such as a campus tour and admissions information, but will also get hands-on experience through various workshops to help them explore career and major opportunities, practice networking skills, and develop their leadership potential. Participants will also have a chance to meet and ask questions with current K-State students, and even listen to some of the university's most influential leaders give advice about the college experience.
