Deans and Donuts

This is a meet-and-greet with a sweet treat. Meet our deans and faculty members, learn about the power of an Art & Sciences education, and pick up a complimentary donut from Varsity Donuts (along with other goodies) in a casual setting as we gear up for game day. This is a come-and-go event, with performances by ArtSci students and comments from Dean Peter Dorhout scheduled throughout the morning. K-State’s popular a cappella ensemble, In-A-Chord, will perform at 9:30, formal comments from Dean Peter Dorhout will be at 10 a.m., and Chemistry students will perform a magic show at 10:30. We’re looking forward to welcoming our students and their families into the K-State ArtSci family!
