New Student Convocation Aug. 22

Submitted by Karina Moncayo-Michel

Join us for the 2021 New Student Convocation at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 22, at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

At the beginning of each school year, thousands of students, faculty, staff and administrators gather at the New Student Convocation to formally welcome first-year students to the university and introduce them to the campus community.  

The theme for this year is "Your K-State Journey Starts Now," and we hope that you'll see how you belong at K-State, learn a little about our university's history and traditions, reflect on the power of getting involved, and think about what your goals for college life might be.   

You will enter the stadium at Gate M, which opens at 6:30 p.m., so be sure to come at that time to grab a hot dog and beverage and find your seat. Current guidance does not require masking in outdoor venues, but we recommend that you bring a mask in case the event needs to move inside due to weather.  

After the convocation and the pep rally, pick up your Lafene bag when you exit through Gates R/S. The bag includes your common book for the year, "The Marrow Thieves," as well as important supplies and resources to keep you safe, healthy and connected throughout the semester.  

Before the event, ATA buses will run from 5:45-7:30 p.m., picking students up at locations between Ford and West halls and in front of Marlatt Hall, and dropping off at Gate M at the stadium. After the event, from 7:30 -9:15 p.m., buses will be available at gates R/S to take students back to their residence hall locations.  

We look forward to seeing you there!
