The Student Alumni Association is excited to welcome students to the Hill! Plenty of events will be held this weekend to introduce new and returning students to the great things KU has to offer.
’Hawk Fest, SAA’s fall kickoff event, will take place on Saturday, Aug. 24, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. All KU students are invited to join us for free food, giveaways, music and performances by the KU Spirit Squad.
The event also includes an Info Fair featuring 150 KU student organizations– if you’re looking for things to get involved with at KU, this is the place to go.
This year’s ’Hawk Fest will be held in parking lot 91, which is just south of Memorial Stadium and the football practice field. Students, be sure to share the event on Facebook and invite your friends!
At 8 p.m., join fellow students, faculty and staff for Traditions Night in the stadium to learn the history, songs and cheers that are part of Jayhawk life.
And, immediately following Traditions Night, enjoy the sixth annual Night on the Hill concert hosted by Student Union Activities and KJHK 90.7 FM. Chicago-based duo The Hood Internet will perform their version of hip hop and indie rock music.
Thank you to our partners at the Student Involvement & Leadership Center and the Office of First-Year Experience for co-sponsoring ’Hawk Fest! Click here to see a full schedule of Hawk Week activities for students.
