Classes of 1965, 1990 return to K-State for alumni reunion
The Graduate School will host the very first Graduate School Alumni Reunion, April 16-17, for those who completed their master's and doctoral degrees 25 years ago in 1990, and 50 years ago in 1965.
This two-day reunion will give the attendees and opportunity to experience how the campus has changed since they were students, participate in networking events that will provide them a chance to reconnect with classmates, colleagues, faculty, current graduate students and K-State administrators.
The alumni will have an opportunity to participate in private tours of the Biosecurity Research Institute, University Gardens, Beach Museum of Art, the Library and K-State Athletic Facilities. Alumni will get a chance to network with the 2015 Graduate School Alumni Fellow, Linda Simon, a 1994 graduate with her doctorate in psychology.
During the campus tour, the alumni will see all the physical changes including new and renovated buildings and enjoy some delicious Call Hall ice cream. On Friday, the group can explore the Konza Prairie, participate in interactive activities with Sean Starowitz, artist-in-residence at the Beach Museum, and tour the K-State president's residence. The alumni will end their visit to campus with a reception and dinner in the K-State Alumni Association building that will feature greetings from K-State President Kirk Schulz, Alumni Association president, Graduate Student Council and the viewing of a video produced especially of the Alumni Reunion.
Returning alumni, from the 1965 and 1990 classes, are from the colleges of Arts & Sciences, Education, Engineering and Human Ecology. If you see these alumni, please extend a warm welcome to them.
