Alumni Association’s Alumni Center 15th Anniversary Showcase open to public

Posted September 7, 2017

The K-State Alumni Association invites the community to a special showcase Oct. 12 celebrating the 15th anniversary of the opening of the Alumni Center. This family-friendly event will take place 3-7 p.m. and will highlight Alumni Association programs and services.

The interactive showcase will feature booths from Alumni Association departments and some of the Alumni Center’s caterers and vendors. In addition, Greg Hardin, author of “When I grow up, I want to be a K-State Wildcat” will host a book signing and a wine tasting will be hosted by Mano’s Inc.

Guests will be able to get a ticket at every booth they visit to enter prize drawings.

The grand prize will be an Alumni Center first floor rental package (some restrictions may apply). Other prizes include K-State gear and gift items.

Attendees also will be able to snap photos with Willie the Wildcat, enjoy free food samples, participate in kids activities, view K-State artifacts in the Memorabilia Room, and take family portraits by the Wildcat Statue. Music will be provided by Complete Music DJ service. Free parking for this event will be available on the west side of the building.

The K-State Alumni Center opened next to K-State’s World War I Memorial Stadium in 2002, after a successful fundraising campaign. The center provides a home for the Alumni Association and also offers rental space for weddings, meetings, graduation parties, anniversaries, reunions and more.

More details will be posted as they become available on Facebook and the Alumni Association event calendar.
