Back to school

Posted on Aug 14, 2013 in Alumni News and News

Fall classes on the Hill begin Monday, Aug. 26, but young students in the Lawrence school district are headed back to school today.

We’ve noticed a trend of first-day-of-school pictures monopolizing our Facebook newsfeeds, and many of those photos happen to include Jayhawk gear! It might be a sign that our Facebook friends lists consist mostly of KU alumni, fans and friends.

Since we already have a Facebook photo album dedicated to adorable Future Jayhawks, we’d like to invite parents to send us pictures of your little Jayhawk in their back-to-school crimson and blue.

If you’d like to show off your future Jayhawk, email a photo to us at Include the following information:

  • Name of the child(ren)
  • Full names of parents (we will only publish first names, but we’d appreciate it if you include last names so we can verify–and in some cases, update– your information in our records)
  • KU degree information for the parent(s), if applicable
  • Child(ren)’s birth date– again, we won’t publish this information, but we’d like to make sure the parents’ alumni record is up-to-date

That’s it! We can’t wait to see more photos of Jayhawks headed off to another year of school.

Future Jayhawks | www.kualumni.orgDid you know that kids can be members of the KU Alumni Association, too? Sign them up for Future Jayhawks, our membership program for kids, and they’ll receive an exclusive, KU-themed gift with each annual membership renewal, along with a special birthday card from Baby Jay and other goodies throughout the year.
