Seven Lawrence restaurants will participate in the KU Alumni Association’s Student Alumni Network Restaurant Partner Program, which offers students a variety of food selections for network events throughout the academic year. The restaurants featured in the program are the exclusive provider in each cuisine category.
Returning as partners for the second consecutive year are Bigg’s BBQ (barbecue), Hot Box Cookies (dessert), Jefferson’s Restaurant (burgers and wings), McAlister’s Deli (sandwiches), Papa Keno’s Pizzeria (pizza) and The Salty Iguana (Mexican).
New this year is the addition of Hy-Vee supermarkets, with two locations in Lawrence, which will serve as the official grocery store partner.
Students also will be able to win gift cards and receive discounts, special offers and giveaways from each of the restaurant partners at Student Alumni Network events and through the network’s social media channels.
The Restaurant Partner Program is one of many benefits offered to KU students in the Student Alumni Network, the largest student organization on campus. Other benefits include access to the Jayhawk Career Network, which includes an online mentoring platform and networking events; free food at student events; discounts with local and national businesses; a free mobile app; and other exclusive gifts.
Membership in the Student Alumni Network is free for all KU undergraduate and graduate students, thanks to funding provided by the Alumni Association and KU Endowment.
“We are thrilled to have the support of these popular Lawrence businesses,” said Heath Peterson, Association president. “Thanks to these partnerships, KU students will receive more programs, benefits and opportunities throughout the school year, as well as delicious food at many Student Alumni Network events.”
