Welcome to the family!

Rock Chalk Jayhawk. The ultimate college experience awaits.

Being a Jayhawk is a family tradition for many of us. The KU Alumni Association can help keep that tradition going strong for generations. As the children and grandchildren of KU alumni begin thinking about college options, the information below may help your future Jayhawk find his or her way to the Hill.
 

Targeted outreach of your legacy student

Help us identify future Jayhawks by sharing the names of prospective KU students who are in the sixth grade or older. After you complete the Legacy Recruitment Program form, your future ‘Hawk will become part of the Office of Admissions mailing list and will receive information about KU. (Note: A student who has already applied for admission to KU is already on the mailing list.)

We complement the recruitment efforts of the Office of Admissions and departments across campus with targeted mailings, KU packages, phone calls and individualized campus visits. Our Office of Legacy Relations communicates with all legacy students who have been admitted for the upcoming fall semester.

KU Winter Receptions

KU alumni are our greatest asset in the recruitment of future Jayhawks. Each year, alumni volunteers and staff members host winter receptions for prospective students who have been admitted to KU and their parents.

Beginning in San Francisco in 2012, the series has expanded to 14 different cities. Events take place in early January, giving current KU students the opportunity to serve on student panels in their hometowns while they’re on winter break.
