SIDEBAR: SENIOR-TO-SENIOR RECEPTION AT ALL-UNIVERSITY OPEN HOUSE TO PROVIDE INCOMING K-STATERS WITH FIRSTHAND ADVICE
MANHATTAN -- Incoming students and their families can visit with Kansas State University seniors who have been through it all at the Senior-to-Senior reception from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 18. The event is part of K-State's All-University Open House.
The reception and chat will feature members of K-State's chapter of Mortar Board, a national college senior honor society, and will be in the Cat's Pause Lounge on the second floor of the K-State Student Union. It is free and high school seniors and their families are encouraged to attend.
"We often hear from prospective students that visiting with current K-State students is one of the most valuable ways to learn about the student experience on campus," said Emily Lehning, assistant vice president for student life. "Giving high school seniors a true taste of what campus life is like will surely convince them that K-State's for them."
The Senior-to-Senior event is one of many specialized gatherings for incoming or prospective students at the All-University Open House, which runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Receptions also will be conducted for out-of-state students, transfer students and multicultural students.
