Hutchinson area KU alumni to welcome freshman Jayhawks on July 21

LAWRENCE -- Recent high school and college graduates from Reno, McPherson and Rice counties and their parents will be welcomed to the University of Kansas family by the Kansas Alumni Association during a Senior Sendoff at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 21, at the Jeff Eriksen Family Cabin, eight-tenths of a mile north of 56th and Plum streets.

The Alumni Association is coordinating the sendoff event with the Hutchinson chapter leader, Jeff Eriksen, to provide more than 45 new freshmen and their parents an opportunity not only to meet one another but also to meet other KU students and alumni from Hutchinson, Inman, Nickerson and Sterling.

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.

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."
