Jayhawks gather in Beijing, witness surprise proposal

Posted on Jul 25, 2014 in Alumni News and News

China may be half the world away from the Hill, but you’d never know it based on the spirit of our Chinese alumni.

The China Chapter of the KU Alumni Association, part of our international network, held an event in Beijing on July 13 to help send off new Jayhawks to the Hill and give alumni an opportunity to connect with each other.

According to Alan Li, c’13, who coordinated the event, around 40 Jayhawks attended.

One of those who attended was welcomed to the flock in a way she probably didn’t expect—alumnus Johnny Li successfully proposed to his girlfriend at the reception!
