University of Kansas faculty and staff are embarking next week on a five-city tour of the state to recruit students, and the first community will be Kansas State University’s hometown.
The university announced Tuesday that it will meet with high school counselors and students throughout the day and hold receptions in the evenings. Students from 157 high schools have been invited to participate.
The university’s main campus is in Lawrence, and this will be the 13th year it has had such a tour.
The tour begins Sunday afternoon in Manhattan, home to Kansas State.
Events will continue on the following days in Salina, Hutchinson, Garden City and Hays.
The KU Rock Chalk Roadshow will be in Salina Monday evening, 6:00 – 7:30, at the Salina Bicentennial Center.
