Alumni Networks

Wichita Network

We’re proud to be your Air Capital connection to the Hill, serving more than 10,000 KU alumni in our area. All year ’round, the Wichita flock gathers for a variety of enjoyable events and programs.


Your membership in the KU Alumni Association helps us offer these gatherings and also strengthens KU through our network’s student recruitment, legislative advocacy and professional and social networking efforts.

Wichita Events

Jayhawk Roundup

Held each fall, this party is a rollicking good time. It’s also our premier local fundraiser attended by hundreds of alumni and friends. Proceeds from this event support KU Alumni Association programs.

Academic Programs

We bring the Hill to you a couple of times each year with interesting programs that highlight the many academic facets of our alma mater. Past academic programs include an evening with KU’s debate team, a celebration of the arts and Hall Center for the Humanities lectures presented by some of KU’s top professors.

Athletic Events

Wichita Jayhawks cheer for their teams! Gather at official watch party locations to watch football and basketball, or attend luncheons with KU coaches.
