Black Alumni ReunionOct. 17-20 

Thursday, Friday, Saturday events 

This year's event is looking to be the biggest reunion extravaganza yet! For nearly 40 years, K-State's Black alumni have come together to reflect and celebrate their college roots and memorable experiences. The K-State Alumni Association's biennial Black Alumni Reunion will draw inspiration from the African diaspora as we uplift K-State's 120th anniversary of the first Black graduate, 118th anniversary of the first Black female graduate and multiple 50th anniversaries (i.e. K-State Black Student Union)

This year's reunion will primarily be hosted at Prairiewood Retreat and Preserve, a unique Manhattan property nestled in 250 acres of native tallgrass prairie that has been rated in the top five for most beautiful natural retreats in Kansas.

Don't miss an experience of a K-State lifetime! Save the date and share the news with your crews!

Due to the K-State football game day change from Thursday, Oct. 17, to Saturday, Oct. 19, the K-State Alumni Association secured rooms prior to the game day change. That means these hotel rates are not subject to the game day pricing premium. Don’t wait until the last minute to reserve your game day hotel for a discounted rate. Hotel rooms in Manhattan don’t last for long! Book now!
