Reserve your seat on the bus to K-State Olathe's opening April 26

By Katie Mayes

Seats are still available on the bus to K-State Olathe's grand opening, Tuesday, April 26.

A 50-plus passenger bus has been scheduled to take interested faculty, staff and students to the opening of Kansas State University's historic third campus. The bus will leave Manhattan at approximately 10 a.m. and leave Olathe for Manhattan between 2:30-3 p.m.

The Olathe campus will bring together K-State'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.
