It’s the Monday after KU’s annual Commencement ceremony, and here at the Alumni Association that means it’s time for ‘Hawk Days of Summer!
Former Alumni Association staff writer Terry Rombeck coined the term “‘Hawk Days of Summer” two years ago to describe the annual summer sojourn across Kansas and around the country. Our staff wants to make the most of the summer months and connect with Jayhawks in every kind of setting, whether it’s a breakfast in a small town in Kansas or a reception in a major national city.
Over the past two summers, we’ve hosted over 300 events and welcomed nearly 20,000 Jayhawks. We’re still in the process of finalizing details for this summer, but our calendar is already filled with receptions, happy hours, baseball games and many other events.
If you’re a member of the Alumni Association (thank you!), be sure to bring your membership card to a ‘Hawk Days event! You’ll receive a free gift as a token of our appreciation. If you don’t have your membership card handy, you can show our staff member a copy of a recent email from us– have you noticed that our emails now feature your current membership level and status at the bottom?
And even if you’re not a member, you can still participate in ‘Hawk Days events. We’d love to see you! (Click here if you’d like to join and take advantage of the free gift.)
