High school juniors from Topeka, Kansas, and the surrounding area will have a chance to learn firsthand about college life at the K-State Alumni Association’s Just For Juniors event Nov. 6 in Topeka at the Capitol Plaza Hotel, 1717 S.W. Topeka Blvd.

 Registration and the career mingling session will begin at 6:30 p.m., and the program will begin at 7 p.m. At the event, high school juniors can learn about K-State’s more than 250 degree programs, visit with members of the Alumni Association’s Student Alumni Board, learn how to build college schedules and have an opportunity to ask questions about going to college. Juniors in attendance will be eligible to win one of three $100 K-State scholarships.

 “High schoolers have a chance to learn more about life at K-State at Just For Juniors,” said Marcus Kidd, assistant director of student programs for the Alumni Association. “They will meet with K-State students who can help answer their questions about college, help them start thinking about their futures and have some fun along the way.”

 Parents in attendance can meet with representatives from the university’s admissions and financial assistance offices to learn about costs, scholarships, the application process and other college topics.

 Walk-ins are welcome, and there is no cost to attend, but advance registration is encouraged. Please park on the northwest side of the hotel. Registration forms are available online at
