KU alumni plan welcome for new freshmen from Dallas area July 23

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 Kansas Alumni Association at 5 p.m. Saturday, July 23, at Curtis Park, 3500 Lovers Lane, Dallas.

The Alumni Association is coordinating the sendoff event with Dallas members to provide more than 75 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 when 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 Kevin Corbett, president, and Jill Simpson, director of national chapter development, as well as Brad Korell, Dallas KU chapter leader.

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