Rock Chalk Roadshow hits the road

Posted on Aug 26, 2013 in Campus News and News

The Rock Chalk Roadshow, a week-long traveling event hosted by the Office of Admissions, is on the road in central and western Kansas this week.

This year’s Roadshow features events in Manhattan, Salina, Hutchinson, Garden City and Hays where prospective Jayhawks and their families can meet KU representatives and learn about all things Jayhawk while enjoying free food and giveaways.

The first event of 2013 was held last night in Manhattan at the public library. Tyler Rockers, coordinator of chapters for the KU Alumni Association, was in attendance along with volunteers from the Flint Hills Chapter. “It was a great event and an excellent chance for KU to showcase all it has to offer to students who may not otherwise get much exposure to KU,” he said.

Alumni are invited to attend the Rock Chalk Roadshow to share their KU experience with prospective students. Here’s a list of the remaining events:
