A strong tradition

K-State's biggest annual event traces its roots to several college events like Home Economics Hospitality Day, Engineers' Open House and Ag Day dating back nearly 90 years. The first all-university Open House was held in 1969 and has since become one of the most popular traditions at K-State.
