Welcome from the President

"Generations of Friendship:  Continuing Connections"

Dear Fellow K-Staters,

I am so pleased to serve this year as the President of the Kansas State University Social Club. Since its inception in 1911, Social Club’s activities and events have evolved, but our primary purpose remains the same:  To encourage interdisciplinary social interactions for members of the Kansas State University family.

Social Club gives members many opportunities to meet new people, including our regular programs, special events, and interest groups. Our interest groups are the life-blood of our organization. These small groups meet monthly to enjoy such activities as tasting fine wines, preparing gourmet meals or sharing hobbies and artistic talents. If you don’t find a group that piques your interest, we warmly welcome new ideas! Generations of lifelong friendships have come through Social Club’s interest groups, and I encourage all new and renewing members to take part in one or more groups!

If you are new to campus, Kansas State University Social Club provides an amazing opportunity to meet members of the K-State family from across the university, as Manhattan becomes your new home. If you are a longtime Wildcat, you already know how special K-State is – membership in Social Club will help you expand your connections across the university community.

I encourage current members to renew their membership and also extend a personal invitation to any eligible potential members. We are pleased to waive the first year's membership fee for new members. The board and I wish everyone a fantastic 2013-2014 year. I look forward to seeing many of you at our upcoming events.

Go Cats!!

Louise Benjamin
2013-2014 President
Kansas State University Social Club
