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