Chalk it Up for the Class of 2020
Our friends at KU Endowment are asking students, alumni and parents to share words of encouragement, advice and well wishes.
ALUMNI, HOMEPAGE NEWS

Our friends at KU Endowment are asking students, alumni and parents to share words of encouragement, advice and well wishes to our graduating students.

 

The graduating class of 2020 has experienced a final semester unlike any other, and their walk down the hill has taken an unexpected turn. We want to show them that Jayhawks flock together (while still social distancing) and we need your help.

 

We’re asking all KU alumni—from all campuses—to share words of encouragement, advice, and other celebratory messages with our 2020 graduates. These messages will be shared via a website and social media to demonstrate our support for the newest members of Jayhawk alumni.

 

Please visit KU Endowment’s website to inspire the class of 2020 with your well wishes and words of encouragement by May 17.That’s the day many of these Jayhawks would have been walking down the hill and we suspect it will be an emotional one. Your words will make a big difference in the lives of many.

 

Thank you for helping us celebrate what it means to be a Jayhawk!
