Alumni Association


Dear Parents and Family Members, 


Welcome to Kansas State University! Whether you and your student are new to the Wildcat community or you have been a K-Stater for life, we welcome you and we are so excited you’re here.


The K-State Alumni Association’s mission is to lead and inspire lifelong involvement that will benefit Kansas State University and all members of our Wildcat Community. One way we do this is by inviting our Distinguished Young Alumni back to speak to our new students at convocation. We hope you enjoy their thoughts and all the events being held during Week of Welcome.


The years spent earning a degree are an impactful and life changing time and we are here to support our K-State students even before they are alumni. We proudly offer events and programs designed to foster engagement and inclusion, while creating memories that will last a lifetime. 


Two of our top student programs are:

Wildcats Forever:    Join our Student Alumni Association for exclusive merchandise and giveaways, throughout the semester; including a $1,000 scholarship drawing for members only. www.k-state.com/wildcatsforever
Homecoming:    The Alumni Association is proud to lead and coordinate the All University Homecoming, with a student driven committee that facilitates this exciting week of events. www.k-state.com/homecoming

To learn about all of our student programs, please visit www.k-state.com/students. 


When your graduation day comes, we are also excited to share that you will receive a complimentary one-year membership to the K-State Alumni Association as a gift from the Association and your college. Your membership will be a direct connection to more than 195,000 graduates, worldwide, and keep you engaged with and informed about the very latest happenings at K-State!


In closing, if the Alumni Association can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us. Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat!


Once again, welcome to campus and GO ’CATS,
