Baldwin City area KU alumni to welcome freshman Jayhawks on July 21


LAWRENCE -- Recent Baldwin City area graduates of high schools and community colleges 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. Thursday, July 21, in the home of Becky and John Thomas, 859 East 1600 Road, Baldwin City.

The Alumni Association is coordinating the sendoff with Becky Thomas 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 Baldwin City and Overbrook. 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. There is a $6 charge for KU alumni to attend.

KU volunteer Becky Thomas helped coordinate the event. Jennifer Alderdice, director of student programs for the Alumni Association, 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."
