That's A Wrap

As our summer season comes to a close, the Office of Conference and Event Services would like to thank all of the students, staff and faculty that greeted and assisted our guests throughout the summer. We saw more than 10,000 visitors, spectators and campers come to our beautiful campus and engage in different programs and events that put KU on their mind for a long time. We have already begun to secure some of these groups for summer 2023 due to your hospitality and customer service. Above is a picture of our summer conference assistants who will now head into the fall semester continuing their educational experience after providing exceptional customer service to all of our clients this summer. If you see them around, show them that Golden Bear Pride by thanking them for the job they did. It's because of them these groups continue to come back to KU. Thank you Golden Bears.

Jason Garcia, Conference and Event Services
