Bus to K-State Olathe for April 26 grand opening

By Katie Mayes

A 50-plus passenger bus is scheduled to take interested faculty, staff and students to the April 26 grand opening of K-State Olathe. The bus will leave Manhattan at 10 a.m. and leave Olathe for Manhattan between 2:30-3 p.m.

The Olathe campus will bring together Kansas State University's expertise in animal health and food safety/security, and act as a catalyst for developing and commercializing new technologies in these fields for the marketplace. The campus will offer graduate-level -- master’s and doctorates -- training for people interested in the biosciences and biotechnology, including animal health and food safety. 

The grand opening includes a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1 p.m., followed by an open house until 7 p.m. Several K-State entities will have displays at the event and Willie the Wildcat will be on hand to help celebrate the official opening of K-State's third campus. 

Reserve your seat by email to vpcm@k-state.edu. The deadline is Friday, April 8.
