For Sophomores Only

For Sophomores Only gives high school sophomores a chance to learn about college life. This event is held in conjunction with the annual K-State All-University Open House.

Since 1993, For Sophomores Only has given high school sophomores a chance to learn about college life. This event is planned in conjunction with the K-State All-University Open House each spring, giving prospective students a chance to experience the university. The program is planned and hosted by Student Alumni Board. High school sophomores who have expressed an interest in K-State are invited to attend.

Sophomores spend Friday evening and Saturday morning with the program. Then they are dismissed to explore K-State's All-University Open House for the rest of the day.

Friday evening activities include small group activities and discussions, a skit by Student Alumni Board students, and a dance/social. Students and their parents stay overnight in a local hotel.

Saturday morning the students participate in Virtual College, a two-hour simulation of a year as a college student while their parents participate in a seminar about admissions, financial aid and scholarships. Parents of Student Alumni Board members lead small groups of parents in discussions about sending a child to college. Students and parents then come together to hear a guest speaker at the conclusion of the event.

The cost for students participating in the Friday and Saturday activities is $25. Each attendee receives a T-shirt and a three-ring binder full of information about college planning.
