What is Crimson & Blue Views?
Crimson & Blue Views events unite alumni and friends to watch televised KU games with fellow Jayhawks.
Attending a watch party is often the first step for Jayhawks who want to get more involved with a network.
These events provide a positive and enjoyable watch experience and allow Jayhawks to share stories and make new friends.
How can you help?
Volunteer to host a watch party for your network. As the host, you will be responsible for displaying KU-branded materials, supplied by the Alumni Association, and greeting attendees.
Encourage participants to connect with the Alumni Association by providing their contact information, by joining the network’s Facebook group, and by downloading the KU Alumni Association app.
Develop a strong partnership with your watch site’s management and staff. Venues will often change, and it’s good practice to establish contacts at each site.
Listen to your network’s feedback on the venue, and make decisions based on what’s best for the network as a whole.
Be a good host: Promote community seating, introduce new attendees, and play KU’s fight song (if the venue allows).
Promote the watch party on social media. Create a fun contest with a nominal prize, such as a gift card to the venue.
