Special thanks to all of our business who have donated prizes for this event. We appreciate your generosity!!!
Participation: Anyone can participate in this event, but only KU students are eligible for the prize drawing. If you are a professor or group who would like to use this event for course credit or as a student organization requirement, there will be a place on the student form for course or organization information. Once we compile all the forms, we will let you know which of your students participated. Please let us know if you will be offering/requiring participation, though. It helps us to know how many forms to print.
Due Date: This year, students will have until Monday, September 21st at 4p.m. to turn in the orientation forms. This allows students several days to print and complete the questions if they couldn’t make it to the open house, and it gives them a chance at participation credit and/or the prize drawing!
