Pinning Ceremony and Reception

K-State Alumni Center

Join us for hors d'oeuvres and desserts as we celebrate the commitment of K-Staters who share a loyalty to the University. This ceremony honors students who are the first in their family to attend K-State and honors students who are following a family legacy of Wildcats. Families will pin their student during the ceremony. In turn- students will present a pin to each of their family members as a symbol of their unconditional support of Wildcats. We will take digital family portraits after the ceremony as your keepsake gift. Advanced registration required.

Statement of Inclusion: At K-State we embrace an extensive definition of family. This may include families of origin and families of choice. If you are a friend, spouse, neighbor, extended family member, guardian, or sibling, we welcome you. We seek to create an inclusive environment for all students and their family members. Our goal is for students to include K-State as they make their family memories.
