KU is going to India

Posted on Jul 14, 2014 in Alumni News and News

The University of Kansas is always looking to expand its international reach, and next week, Jayhawk spirit will be proudly displayed in India.

Shannon O’Hagan, international student recruiter for the Office of International Recruitment and Undergraduate Admissions, and the International Knowledge Center will host five receptions in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Bangalore. All alumni, friends and students are invited—whether current, newly admitted or prospective students.

This is a great opportunity for alumni to share what they love about KU with current and future students, as well as for those students to learn more about the Hill.

The International Knowledge Center is part of GenNext, a company owned by KU alumnus Girish Ballolla, c’95, g’97.

Please RSVP to Shannon at shannon.ohagan@ku.edu if you’re interested in attending a reception, and please spread the word to other Jayhawks in India!
