LAWRENCE — New University of Kansas students and their parents from southeast Kansas, southwest Missouri and northeast Oklahoma will be welcomed into the KU family at Jayhawk Generations Welcome Picnic at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 12, in Pittsburg.

Guests and alumni from the following counties are invited to attend: Allen, Bourbon, Cherokee, Crawford, Labette, Montgomery, Neosho, Wilson and Woodson counties in Kansas; Barton, Bates, Cass, Cedar, Christian, Douglas, Greene, Henry, Howell, Jasper, Lawrence, McDonald, Newton, Vernon, Webster and Wright counties in Missouri; and Craig, Delaware, Mayes and Ottawa counties in Oklahoma.

The KU Alumni Association and the Tri-State chapter will greet the next generation of Jayhawks at Lincoln Park, Shelter House No. 3. Current KU students, alumni and university representatives will mix and mingle with students to answer questions and offer advice.
