Representatives will visit 54 schools in 34 counties

KU’s “Rock Chalk Roadshow” will travel more than 2,000 miles and roll into 54 high schools and community colleges in Kansas Aug. 29 through Sept. 3.

The roadshow, now in its second year, will take six staff members from the KU Office of Admissions and Scholarships on the road in two vans through 34 counties in central and western Kansas. During the day, KU representatives will drop by school counselors’ offices. During the evenings and on Sunday afternoon, KU administrators will join the admissions staff and the Baby Jay mascot to meet with parents and students in five cities.

KU administrators joining the roadshow will include Marlesa Roney, vice provost for student success; Lisa Pinamonti, admissions director; and Kerry Rutledge, admissions counselor.

“KU looks to central and western Kansas for some of its most outstanding students,” Pinamonti said. “We look forward to meeting with some of the state’s brightest students and their parents for a chance to share some of the opportunities that await them at KU.”
