KU alumni plan welcome for new freshmen from Chicago area July 24

LAWRENCE - Recent area high school and community college graduates planning to attend the University of Kansas this fall will be welcomed to the KU family by the KU Alumni Association at 1 p.m. Sunday, July 24, at Frontier Park, 1933 N. Kennicott Ave., Chicago.

The Alumni Association is coordinating the sendoff event with Chicago members to provide more than 160 new freshmen and their parents an opportunity not only to meet one another but also to meet other KU students and alumni in the area. Current KU students will offer to share their freshman experiences and will serve as mentors once the new freshmen arrive on campus about Aug. 14 for orientation and fall enrollment activities. KU's fall term begins Aug. 18.

Kansas Alumni Association representatives attending include Jill Simpson, director of national chapter development, and Chicago KU chapter leaders Sarah Barber and Annessa Staab.

For more information or to make reservations, contact Jill Simpson at (800) 584-2957.
