All good things must eventually come to an end, but the spirit of celebration and tradition will continue.

Kansas State University concludeed its nine-month sesquicentennial celebration with the 150th Grand Finale and closing ceremonies reception on the Anderson Hall lawn. 

The event will included a viewing of the artifacts that will go into the university's time capsule, a performance by the K-State Marching Band, giveaways, booths of sesquicentennial memorabilia, an appearance by Willie the Wildcat and remarks at 4:15 p.m. by President Kirk Schulz and university chief of staff and sesquicentennial chair Jackie Hartman — all complemented by the final batch of the Wildcat birthday 150 cake-flavored ice cream that was introduced by the Call Hall dairy bar.
