EXCITE Shadow Days

Shadow Days

Fall 2021 EXCITE Shadow Days

High school students are invited to experience a day in the life of a K-State student! Join EXCITE as we return to in-person events designed to help you learn about STEM majors, opportunities available on campus, and life as a Wildcat.   

Two Fall Dates! September 22 and November 10

We plan to offer these dates in-person! However, all decisions will be made using the best available science and guidance from K-State, KDHE and the CDC, with participant health and safety at the forefront.
