Alumni Reunion for classes of 1965 and 1990

Plan a trip back to K-State and down memory lane as the Graduate School celebrates the 50th year reunion of the class of 1965 and the 25th year reunion of the class of 1990. This two-day celebration–planned for April 16 and 17, 2015–will include campus tours and visits with faculty and students. The celebration will conclude with a reception and dinner featuring President Kirk Schulz and other special guests.

Graduates of 1965 and 1990 will receive additional information in the mail. If you have any questions, please contact the Graduate School at (785) 532-6191 or gradreunion@ksu.edu.

We look forward to welcoming our alumni back to campus and to learn of their many successes!
