Salina area KU alumni to welcome freshman Jayhawks from Saline County


LAWRENCE -- Recent graduates of Saline County high schools 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 at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 27, at Oakdale Park, 730 Oakdale Drive, in Salina.

The Alumni Association is coordinating the sendoff event with John Mize, Salina alumni volunteer, to provide new freshmen and their parents an opportunity not only to meet one another but also to meet other KU students and alumni from the area. 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 Alumni Association. There is a $6 charge for KU alumni to attend.

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, or reserve space at http://www.kualumni.org, under "alumni events."
