Garden City area KU alumni to welcome freshman Jayhawks from 10 counties


LAWRENCE -- Recent graduates of high schools and colleges from 10 counties planning to attend the University of Kansas this fall will be welcomed to the KU family by the Kansas Alumni Association during a Senior Sendoff 6 p.m. Monday, July 25, at the Southwind Country Club, 77 Grandview Drive, Garden City. A golf tournament will precede the sendoff with a noon start for alumni and guests who wish to participate.

The Alumni Association is coordinating the sendoff with alumni in the Garden City and southwest Kansas chapter for more than 45 new freshmen and their parents. Senior Sendoffs provide new KU students and parents an opportunity not only to meet one another but also to meet other KU students and alumni from Finney, Grant, Hamilton, Haskell, Kearny, Morton, Scott, Seward, Stanton and Wichita counties. Current KU students have been invited to share their experiences and to serve as mentors after the freshmen arrive in Lawrence. KU's fall term begins Aug. 18. Freshmen arrive on campus Aug. 14 for orientation and enrollment activities.

The sendoff will include grilled picnic fare, and each student will receive a KU T-shirt. Entering freshmen and their parents and returning KU students may attend as guests of the Kansas Alumni Association. Charges for the golf tournament are $75 a person or $300 a team.

Mark McFarland, Garden City alumni leader, helped coordinate the events.

Alumni Association representatives Mike Davis, senior vice president for alumni programs, and Heath Peterson, director of Kansas chapter development, also will attend the event.

For more information or to make reservations, please contact Heath Peterson at (800) 584-2957.
