Student leaders go behind the scenes at Allen Fieldhouse

Posted on Oct 2, 2013 in Campus News and News

New members of the Student Alumni Leadership Board, along with the board’s executive members, were treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of Allen Fieldhouse recently.

Each year, new board members take a field trip to a place on campus that isn’t normally accessible to students. This year, Larry Hare, associate athletics director, gave the students a tour that included the men’s basketball lounge, the players’ walkway to the court, the equipment room that houses all the basketball uniforms, the practice facility– where Bill Self greeted the students– and finally, center court on James Naismith Court.

The students also bumped into a few players along the way, including Andrew Wiggins.

The meeting concluded in the donor atrium with a presentation by Mike Davis, senior vice president for donor and membership programs for the KU Alumni Association.

We are thrilled to welcome new students to the Student Alumni Leadership Board!
