More than 300 Jayhawks at 22 different events came together Aug. 1 over coffee, at happy hours or online to network and make new connections for Kyou Networking Day.

One of those connections came from San Antonio, where 30 Jayhawks attended a happy hour. “We had a woman who had recently moved to San Antonio and was looking for a job in the education field,” said network leader Morgan Bertram, d’02. “She was able to connect with a principal of a local school who was able to help her in finding some teaching openings.”

Here’s a look at a few more of the many events that alumni organized for Kyou Networking Day.
