MANHATTAN — Kansas State University invites high school students from the Greater Kansas City area to learn more about college life at a special event in Overland Park.
K-State Celebrates, a showcase for future students, will be 7:15-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7, at the Ritz Charles, 9000 W. 137th St., Overland Park. Check-in for this free event starts at 6:45 p.m. Parents and friends are welcome.
"K-State celebrates has been bringing a slice of our university to the Greater Kansas City area since 1986," said Pat Bosco, vice president for student life and dean of students. "Current students, academic advisers and student life staff join K-State parents and alumni to make this a hands-on celebration of what makes our school a very special place."
Bosco will discuss opportunities available at the university. Joining him will be representatives from K-State's nine academic colleges, who will provide information on the university's academic programs and options. Information about student services, including housing and dining, Greek life, student financial assistance and multicultural student organizations, also will be offered.
"This event is a great way for students from the Kansas City area to find out about everything K-State has to offer in one fun, informative evening," said Lizzi Petite, K-State admissions representative. "We highly recommend K-State Celebrates to high school students and their parents who want to learn more about choosing a college and to see what being part of the K-State family is all about."
At K-State Celebrates, students can sign up for a campus visit and ask questions of admissions representatives and student ambassadors. At least one high school senior will receive a $250 textbook scholarship for his or her first semester at K-State.
