High school sophomore legacy students were treated to a special KU visit day last weekend, hosted by KU’s Office of Admissions.
A total of 224 people attended the event, including 96 sophomore students and 128 guests. Participants experienced KU in all its game-day glory, and enjoyed campus tours, lunch in the Union and presentations about what it’s like to be a Jayhawk.
One lucky attendee even won a basketball signed by the 2014-15 men’s team, which will surely entice her to enroll at the University in a few years.
After the formal program, students and their guests had a few hours to explore campus and Lawrence on their own or tailgate on the Hill before heading to the football game in Memorial Stadium.
Students and parents, as well as organizers, were pleased with the event. “We really enjoyed the entire program, and thought everything was well organized and informative,” said parent Jay Burgess. “Our ambassador did a great job of showing off the school and answering all our questions—I know I was ready to come back to school at the end of the day!”
Joy Maxwell, the Alumni Association’s director of legacy relations, declared the program a winner. “Saturday’s event was top-notch!”
