The K-State Alumni Association is taking its annual road trip and bringing Kansas State University to you. 

Every summer, the Alumni Association travels to cities across the United States as part of the Catbacker and Alumni Club tours, providing opportunities for alumni to gather, hear updates about the university and athletics, and support the next generation of students. 

The Alumni Association partners with K-State Athletics to sponsor Catbacker Clubs throughout the state of Kansas. Clubs contribute to the Ahearn Scholarship Fund for student-athletes and help increase awareness of and support for K-State athletic programs. The 2016 Catbacker Tour kicks off with a banquet and golf event May 16 in Dodge City, and concludes with a golf event Aug. 15 in Wichita.

Alumni Clubs are generally established, both in Kansas and out-of-state, in areas with more than 200 alumni within a 50-mile radius. Throughout the year, they bring K-State alumni and friends together for social outings, promote K-State and connect alumni to their alma mater. Many clubs host a summer gathering that includes special guests from the university leadership, dinner, presentations by the K-State Student Ambassadors and scholarships to help students attend K-State.

The next Alumni Club event is in Larned on April 12. Find an upcoming event in your area, or locate a club near you. Watch your mailbox and inbox for more information on upcoming Alumni Club events.
