2018 Student Alumni Weekend


This year, KSUCPM welcomes alumni and students to come together again as a community and participate in the activities throughout our Alumni Reunion Weekend. Our goal is to increase the endowed scholarship fund, which provides key financial support to our students while helping to build a sustainable future for our college.

You are invited to join us for one or all of the events that we have planned for the weekend. Come enjoy and celebrate with your fellow alumni and current students so we can continue this tradition together. Thank you for staying connected and playing an active role in the college's future.
