Nearly 50 K-Staters, including students, faculty, staff and alumni, gathered at the Capitol in Topeka on Feb. 19 for the annual Cats in the Capitol event.  

This event takes place to remind legislators and their staff of the important role that higher education and the university have in the state and to thank them for their support.   

During the day, the K-Staters served Call Hall ice cream and Bakery Science cookies. This year’s event was bigger than ever with K-State exhibits setup in the Capitol's first-floor rotunda area. Willie the Wildcat also was on hand for photographs and leading the K-S-U cheer. Throughout the day, nearly 1,200 people visited the K-State exhibits to learn more about the university’s achievements and enjoy the Wildcat treats.                  

Several legislators and their staff members commented that Cats in the Capitol is one of their favorite days of the year.
