Many reunions are held each year on the K-State campus. From living groups and student
organizations to academic departments, K-State alumni come together to reconnect with
one another and experience campus today. Our K-State spirit and purple pride are with
us for a lifetime and we invite all former students and friends to return to campus
to reconnect and reminisce on their time spent in Manhattan. The Alumni Association
offers services to groups looking to host a reunion or alumni gathering.
