Communications and Marketing
Kansas State University celebrated
its sesquicentennial Feb. 14 with a kickoff event looking back at 150 years of
colleges, academic departments and other facets of university life — topped with
the university's signature Call Hall ice cream and birthday cupcakes.
kickoff event was 1 to 7 p.m. in Ahearn Field House and included music from
university groups and displays about the university's history. The party
included a treat from the Call Hall dairy bar, home to university-made ice
cream. Named "Wildcat Birthday 150," the flavor is a cake batter-based ice cream
with chunks of birthday cake, topped with royal purple sprinkles.
weekend events included the 150th Gala, Founder's Day on the basketball court
and a performance by comedian Carol Burnett.
