Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013
MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University is offering a look at campus life for high school students from the Greater Kansas City area.
K-State Celebrates showcases opportunities at the university for future students and will be 7:15-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, at the Ritz Charles, 9000 W. 137th St., Overland Park. Registration for the free event starts at 6:45 p.m. Parents and friends are welcome.
"K-State Celebrates is a wonderful chance for prospective students and family members to hear firsthand from current K-Staters," said Pat Bosco, vice president for student life and dean of students. "We'll answer two questions: 'What's all the excitement about?' and 'Is our school the right fit?'"
Bosco will share opportunities available at the university, and representatives from all of K-State's nine academic colleges will be available to talk about academic programs and options. Parents and students can learn about student service organizations, such as housing and dining services, Greek affairs, student financial assistance and multicultural organizations.
"This event is an outstanding opportunity for Kansas City-area students to experience everything that K-State has to offer in a convenient location," said Katie Kozacek, a K-State admissions representative. "I recommend this event to high school students and their parents who want learn about choosing a college and to see what the K-State family is all about."
Students can sign up for a campus visit, and admissions representatives and student ambassadors can answer questions. Drawings will be held for prizes, and at least one senior will receive a $250 book scholarship to be used toward textbooks for his or her first semester at K-State.
