The KU Alumni Association offers chapter across the country and around the world. These groups get together to watch games, enjoy KU camaraderie, recruit the best incoming students to KU and work to strengthen the University. Here’s a highlight of the San Diego Chapter of the KU Alumni Association from chapter leader Gardner Wright, c’83.
We had a great time at the San Diego Padres game last Friday night as the team took on the defending world champions, the San Francisco Giants.
Yeah, the Padres lost– again– but it was great to see fellow Jayhawks and connect with other alumni. The oldest Jayhawk who attended was from the class of ’56 and the youngest will be in the class of 2018– he also picked up a foul ball as a souvenir!
San Diego Jayhawks have another event planned this summer. On August 7 we’ll gather at Stone Brewery in Escondido, Calif., for a beer tasting and tour. Click here for more information or to register.
We are always doing something here in San Diego for our great alumni and friends. This fall, we’ll host KU football watch parties at Boardwalk Mission Beach and Kansas City Barbeque. You never know who might stop by; last year, Kansas Governor Brownback attended a watch party! We have another brewery tour and networking event planned, and we might even make a pilgrimage to Allen Fieldhouse to watch our Jayhawks take on San Diego State University Jan. 5– we’ll keep you posted!
